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.
When a New York Observer article on closeted Hollywood stars was released in 2012, one writer seemed to latch on to the idea that the author of the article was directing at least a few paragraphs at Crawford.
