When it comes to celebrities, people love to gossip about their sexuality. Maybe it’s because of their above the clouds status that regular Joes doesn’t have a problem discussing whether or not particular actors are secretly gay or not. Or maybe audiences believe everyone at the top of the Hollywood scrap heap has a juicy sex secret. Whatever the reason for celebrity gay rumors, not all of them are true! On this list are some of the biggest suspected homosexual actors, at least according to the gossip rags and Internet chatter. Take a look through this collection of faces from film and television and see which actors you love are rumored to be gay.

When it comes to whether or not someone is gay, the truth is...IT DOESN"T MATTER! But when you’re the face of a multi-million dollar film, the last thing you want is a scandal to pop up and destroy your film’s chances of making money. There’s a massive debate to be had about whether or not closeted gay actors should come out of the closet. One side says they should, in order to give a voice to everyone struggling to live as their own true selves, but on the other, it’s not really anyone’s business what anyone does in the privacy of their own home. But that doesn’t change the fact that speculating about whether an actor is gay or not is older than Hollywood itself. Put on your detective hat, cast your votes, and start trying to figure out which of these celebrities is secretly gay.
