Stars who have been accused of being gay

One of the Hollywood’s biggest legends, Marlon Brando, was considered to be a huge womanizer but also faced some gay rumors in his time. Today’s stars have the same problem as many of them are speculated to be homosexual. Take a look at some celebs that have been accused of being gay.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck








Best friends, Damon and Affleck, are no strangers when it comes to gay rumors. They never denied it until Matt decided to speak up about it in December 2012. He said: “I never denied those rumors because I was offended and didn’t want to offend my friends who were gay. As if being gay were some kind of f–king disease. It put me in a weird position in that sense.”

Kristen Stewart








In 2009, gossip sites went wild with headlines that suggested the Twilight star was a lesbian. However, a closer look at Stewart’s quotes reveals that she was actually responding to a question over the nature of her relationship with Robert Pattinson: “I’ve thought about this a lot. There’s no answer that’s not going to tip you one way or the other. Think about every hypothetical situation. ‘OK, we are. We aren’t. I’m a lesbian.’ I probably would’ve answered if people hadn’t made such a big deal about it. But I’m not going to give the finding an answer.”

John Travolta








He has been dogged by gay rumors and reports since the late 1980s. Several men have even come forward alleging that Travolta sexually assaulted and harassed them. The actor denies the claims.

Tom Cruise








Despite three high-profile marriages, Tom has been the subject of gay speculation for years. In 2003, he won a $10 million default judgment in a case against a gay adult movie actor who claimed the two had an affair, and two years earlier, he sued Los Angeles-based publisher Michael Davis for $100 million after Davis claimed to have a videotape of Cruise engaged in homosexual acts. As People reported, the suit was eventually dropped, and Davis eventually stated that Cruise “is not, and never has been, homosexual and has never had a homosexual affair.”

Zoe Saldana








Addressing speculation she might be a lesbian, Zoe said: “People have sometimes told my grandmother, ‘Your granddaughter has a bit of lesbianism in her.’ It’s that my sisters and I spent all our time among men. We were very popular with them. Our way of thinking is very masculine.”

Jeremy Renner








The actor blasted persistent rumors about his sexuality. “I want my personal life to be personal, and it’s not f***ing true,” Renner is quoted as saying. “And I don’t care if you’re talking about things that are true, you’re still talking about my personal life.. How about I go peek in your window, take what underwear you wore last night, whose husband you were f***ing, and shove that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel?”

Vin Diesel








When asked about the long-standing rumors on his sexuality, Vin said: “I was like, ‘How could you say that? Why would you say that? I’m not gonna put it out there on a magazine cover like some other actors. I come from the Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino code of silence. I’m not gonna do that.”

Oprah Winfrey








This talk show giant has been rumored to be in a relationship with Gayle King, although Oprah has denied that to be true. She told Barbara Walters last year: “I’m not even kind of a lesbian. And the reason why the rumor irritates me is because it means that somebody must think I’m lying. That’s No. 1. No. 2 … why would you want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life.”

George Clooney








After Esquire uncovered a website that referred to the actor as “gay, gay, gay,” Clooney quipped, “No, I’m gay, gay. The third gay — that was pushing it.”

Kate Hudson








Kate said she was baffled by rumors she’d embarked on a steamy lesbian affair. “No, no, no,” she was quoted as saying. “Strictly boys for me!”

Whoopi Goldberg








Whoopi Goldberg has long faced scrutiny about her sexuality. The Oscar-award winning actress and “The View” co-host once said in a 2006 New York Times interview: “No, I am not a lesbian. I describe myself as heterosexual. I think it is hard to have good relationships with anyone.”

Keanu Reeves








The Matrix star has always been extremely secretive about his private life. Reeves has been linked to some very A-list gay men yet nothing has been confirmed. In an early 90’s interview Keanu was asked whether he was homosexual or not and his response was “ya never know.”

Hugh Jackman

  1. Arthur says:

    I wonder why people are so interested in “underwear business” of celebrities. I agree with most of the actors and actresses, who keep the silence code. I agree that personal life should remain personal. Why would people know what sexuality you belong to? In present life you cannot say I am not gay not to offend the homosexual, but when people say you belong to the sexual group you would never refer yourself to it is also offensive. So, we better keep this private!
