There are a few celebrities who will always have a cloud of gay rumors swirling around them. In fact, South Park did an entire episode about Tom Cruise coming out of the closet. However absurd as those rumors may be, there is always an ounce of truth in each piece of gossip that is spread around the glamorous world of Hollywood. Take, for instance, the incessant rumor that John Travolta only requests that men give him massages. Again, it can be hard to believe some of the more ludicrous stories that are spread about some of our favorite celebrities.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with being gay, lesbian, or bisexual, this is just a silly list of celebrities who have had some sort of rumor spread about them regarding their sexuality. It can be complete bologna for all we know, but in the efforts of solid journalism, here are just a few celebrities that some say will come out of the closet sooner rather than later. Did we ever think Bruce Jenner would ever become Caitlyn? Stranger things have happened, so let’s not live by this list too hard. Ideally, you want to take this list with a grain of salt and have fun reading about some theories about your favorite celebrities.
18. Elijah Wood
Ever since Lord Of The Rings was first in movie theatres, gay rumors have seemed to swirl around Elijah Wood. Back in 2005, he seemed pretty amused by the allegations, but lately, he seems less so. When it comes to someone’s sexuality, the media has a way of wanting as many private details as possible and forcing people to come out before they are ready.This can be detrimental to the celebrity and their mental state. That’s why if Elijah is gay or if he’s straight, all that matters is that he is happy with who he is and his romantic relationships. In the end, we all want our celebrities to live their best lives and we want to celebrate along with them (well, at least virtually). So if Elijah chooses to stay in the closet, or if there isn’t even a closet that he needs to come out of, it really doesn’t matter.
17. Daniel Radcliffe
Being an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community can be a surefire way to invite gay rumors. That may be why so many people question Daniel Radcliffe’s sexuality on a regular basis. Even though he’s quashed the rumor mill before, people still don’t seem to believe that he is straight. Although he keeps his private life, well, private, people can’t seem to stop thinking that he is hiding the fact that he is gay. The fact that he’s a private individual definitely doesn’t make him gay. In fact, most gay rumors surrounding celebrities are because they are extremely private when it comes to their romantic lives. For some celebrities, this is just a way of life, but for others who are actually hiding a big gay secret, it can be harmful to keep prying.
16. Jake Gyllenhaal
People seem to always wonder about Jake Gyllenhaal’s sexuality. In fact, ever since his almost too real performance in Brokeback Mountain, people have been wondering what the deal is with him. While Gyllenhaal has been linked to a slew of hot Hollywood actresses over the years, he can never seem to settle down with anyone. Maybe it’s the curse of being with Taylor Swift for a hot second, but everyone really wants this sexy actor to fill us in on his sexuality. Spending so much time with his guy friends will always lead to gay rumors and that’s why everyone seems to think that Jake might be more into guys than simply being “in character” for one film. As a result, we’ve turned to the psychics who predict our beloved Jake will eventually come out of the closet.
15. Taylor Lautner
Back in 2011, People magazine reported a fake story alleging that Taylor had already come out of the closet. The article featured a sexy photo of Taylor with the headline “Out And Proud.” Taylor made sure to correct the story by telling the Australian GQ that he was in fact totally and completely straight. He probably wanted to make sure that his loyal fans (aka hordes of screaming girls) wouldn’t be disappointed. However, the questions still loom large since Taylor has never actually settled down with a girl. His romantic relationships have all been entirely secret, making it really hard not to question his sexuality. C’mon, Taylor. Can you just let us know once and for all what the deal is so we can continue to fantasize about your gorgeous body?!
14. Joe Jonas
Joe Jonas is probably not gay, but he is definitely in touch with his feminine side quite often. The DNCE member is notorious for taking and subsequently sharing naked selfies with his fans. In fact, he has a slew of gay fans who send him nude selfies of themselves hoping to score a chance of meeting Joe Jonas in the flesh. The reality is, Joe Jonas probably knows that you think he is gay. However, he is absolutely fine with that. Joe knows it’s pure speculation and just opinion. He isn’t fazed by the gay rumors because he is completely comfortable with who he is as a man and person overall. Taking the gay rumors in stride, Joe Jonas shows us all what it’s like to be so f***ing comfortable in your own skin that you don’t give a damn about others say.
13. Jared Leto
Known as a versatile actor and chameleon, Jared Leto is phenomenal in every movie that he appears in. More to the point, Jared Leto has absolutely no problem taking on gay roles. Just look at his award-winning portrayal of Rayon in The Dallas Buyers Club. There is no denying the fact that Jared is talented. But after that movie, rumors started swirling about his sexuality. The reality is that Jared is always seen in public with women. However, transgender actress Alexis Arquette has said that she has been intimate with Jared before she made the transition to becoming a woman, further fueling the rumor mill. She even mentioned how large his package is, which only made women and men all over the world fall more in love with Jared Leto.
12. Ben Affleck
As one-half of one of the biggest bromances in Hollywood history, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are like two peas in a pod. It’s no wonder that people question their sexuality on the regular. Since the rumors about Ben only loom large in terms of Matt Damon, it makes it quite hard actually to believe them. But the reality is that Ben seems to love long-term relationships but struggles to keep things going for the long haul. Take his whirlwind romance with Jennifer Lopez and his decently long marriage to Jennifer Garner. While Ben is now allegedly dating a TV producer, he may be hiding his true sexuality. And Ben, we really just want you to feel safe to come out, whenever you feel that the time is right.
11. Matt Damon
As the other half of the infamous bromance couple mentioned above, Matt Damon has a penchant for choosing characters that tend to be a little more flamboyant than most. Although the gay rumors are most likely wishful thinking, they still should be addressed. While Matt has been happily married to his wife for a long time now, we can’t escape the fact that he played Scott Thorson in Behind The Candelabra. When an actor is totally convincing as a gay man, that makes anyone wonder about their real sexuality. Just like everyone else on this list, Matt has too much fortune and fame to give a damn about whether the media thinks he’s gay or not. If he is in the closet, it really is his business, and he treats it as such. Therefore, we might as well all just back off and let him enjoy his family in peace.
10. Leo DiCaprio
While he earned the playboy reputation real quick by solely dating models half his age, Leo DiCaprio is not someone who comes to mind when you think of a gay celebrity hiding in the closet. However, stranger things have happened in Hollywood. Anyway, the real reason that rumors about Leo’s sexuality began swirling is due to his inability to stay in a relationship for the long haul. Whenever male celebrities fail to maintain a satisfactory relationship, the gay rumors become instantaneous. Although he is known to live up his single life, people simply can’t help but speculate that he dates all these younger models because he is hiding a big gay secret in the back of his closet that he doesn’t want to get out into the media.
9. Queen Latifah
Back in 2008, Queen Latifah expressly told the New York Times “I don’t have a problem discussing the topic of somebody being gay, but I do have a problem discussing my personal life.” And, so, rumors subsequently began to swirl about Queen Latifah’s sexuality. Just like most of the celebrities on this list, Queen Latifah is extremely private when it comes to matters of her personal life, especially her romantic life. While we don’t ever see her with a man out in public, that doesn’t necessarily mean that she is hiding in the closet. The reality is, we don’t see her with women, either. She just sorts of is her own person and is totally fine being single if that’s what her precious little heart desires.
8. Josh Hutcherson
The Hunger Games star and heartthrob continue to be coy about his sexuality. Another gay rights activist, Josh is never rumored to be in relationships with women. In fact, he told Out Magazine that while he identifies as straight, if he met the right guy, “who knows.” Who knows? That’s not exactly the definition of a heterosexual, Josh. This is one rumor that, although heartbreaking for most women, is one that has some actual possibility of being true. It seems as though for Josh Hutcherson, being attracted to a man is not something that is completely out of the question. As a result, there was no way that we were leaving him out of this exceptional list of celebrities that will eventually come out of the closet.
7. Katy Perry
Ever since Katy Perry kissed a girl and liked it, the rumors began to swirl about Katy’s sexuality. While she admits that she was raised in a very conservative household (and she wasn’t allowed to even interact with gay people), media outlets have reported that this cherry-chapstick songstress may be a lesbian in disguise. While she was previously married to Russell Brand and then had a very public romance with Orlando Bloom, now that the singer is finally single, people are wondering if the next headline will be that she has come out of the closet. She even admitted it dipping her foot in the lady pond once already, so all we are looking for is some confirmation that Katy is not completely heterosexual.
Madonna has been a gay icon ever since she first stepped onto a stage. However, the gay rumors have started swirling now that she has been single for quite a long time after divorcing from her husband, Guy Ritchie. Madonna will forever and always be an eternal inspiration for all LGBTQ+ youths and adults alike. She brings a ton of inspiration to the LGBTQ+ community, so it’s no wonder that people speculate about her own sexual identity and whether or not something is lurking in her closet that will eventually come to light. Madonna’s impact will always have an excellent and lasting impression on the entire LGBTQ+ community for many years to come, regardless of whether or not she is part of the community herself.
5. Britney Spears
Britney Spears has become synonymous with the LGBTQ+ community. Gay guys adore her and flock to her any chance that they get. Just another celebrity on this list who has gotten the gay rumors swirling thanks to her activism. Just because the media and society have labeled Britney Spears as a gay icon does not mean that she is necessarily part of the community herself. She had a super brief marriage to Kevin Federline, went crazy and shaved her head, and then had a revolutionary comeback like no other superstar ever could have had. Being inspired by her gay fans is simply not enough to label her as someone who is hiding a gay secret of her own in the closet. In fact, it could be argued that if she actually was gay, she would have come out a long time ago.
4. Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan may have actually come out the closet. While she hasn’t completely gone toward the ladies, she definitely prefers them these days. The rumors continue to swirl that the infamous celebrity prefers women when it comes to romantic relationships. And how can we ever forget her notorious romance with Samantha Ronson a few years ago? After that, she stayed on the side of women and dated other high-profile female celebrities. Even though Lindsay claims that she is totally straight, we all have to wonder if someone who is straight would find herself in romantic relationships with other women on the regular. Lindsay, please, just be honest with everyone and set your sexuality straight. In the end, it’s up to her to decide how she wants to live her life.
3. Jaden Smith
Jaden Smith, the prodigal son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, has yet to come out of the closet despite numerous reports. All that being said, there still seem to be a ton of rumors surrounding his sexuality and when he will set the record straight (or gay). Jaden is known for being unique and off the beaten path. His creative style and flair lend themselves to gay rumors circulating on a daily basis. However, it seems like Jaden Smith rises above the gossip and continues to live his life in his own way. He has cultivated his own sense of style and fuels his creative energies into whatever project he is working on at the time. Jaden, you continue to do you because that is all that really matters!
2. Whoopi Goldberg
This star is another outspoken LGBTG+ advocate getting swarmed with gay rumors. However, in this case, there may be some real truth to the rumors. The fact remains that we never see Whoopi Goldberg with a man in her life, and she never even talks about being intimate with people. Even though Whoopi describes herself as straight, we can’t help but wonder whether she is hiding something from us all. While we all know that having relationships is difficult and keeping your private life private is increasingly essential for celebrities, if Whoopi were to come out of the closet, it really wouldn’t come as a surprise. Whoopi, just let us know when you do decide to step out of that closet and enjoy your new view.
1. Tobey Maguire
Even though Tobey was married to Jennifer Meyer and the couple has children together, the rumors surrounding his sexuality continue to run rampant. Tobey Maguire tends to play sensitive characters in movies and on television. As a result, it seems as though audiences find him to be too much of a cry baby to be straight. Since Tobey and Leo DiCaprio is such close friends, rumors of a gay love situation have apparently arisen. They are often seen on vacations together or just hanging out with one another. While it’s hard to actually imagine either Tobey or Leo in a sexual love affair with one another, the gossip rags continue to question Tobey Maguire’s sexuality. Whatever your deal is, Tobey, we just want to know!
