Hollywood's Coming Out Guru

An LA Weekly profile of Hollywood publicist Howard Bragman asks a provocative question: is the time ripe for an A-list male actor to come out of the closet? Bragman thinks the answer is yes.

Patrick Range McDonald writes that Bragman, openly gay himself, has helped numerous celebrities and pro athletes with the "tricky and, for decades, risky terrain" of coming out. He currently works with Chaz Bono, whose gender transition from female to male was recently reported on TMZ. He's brought out actor Mitchell Anderson and NBA player John Amaechi. But now, he says, it's time for someone really big. McDonald writes,

"The publicist hasn't brought out an A-list, gay male actor - yet. But Bragman says that day is coming, and after the first superstar decides to reveal himself, a fundamental shift in American acceptance of gay leading men may not be far behind. He's currently working with a famous musician who's still closeted from the public, but who will come out next year. And the manager of one major movie star approached Bragman a year ago and asked about his client's possibly going public, but the actor still refuses to pull the trigger.

"I felt a little frustrated with that superstar," Bragman says in reflection, "because it had to be 'handled.'"

Bragman's frustration aside, Hollywood remains "a surprisingly conservative entity." Stars mobilized for a "No on Prop. 8" campaign, but McDonald says "the big studios and their mostly male chiefs - and the scores of socially liberal men and women who play key roles as casting directors and agents - have together created a kind of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, which places enormous pressure on gay, male actors to remain in the closet." Bragman is confident this can change — he even says, "coming out can be used as a marketing tool." And McDonald cites some hopeful statistics — 89% of Americans now believe that gay people should have equal job opportunities, and 72% say they would not change their opinion of an athlete if they found out he was gay.

Still, gay actors face some challenges. Foremost is the fear that, as McDonald writes, "audiences would be uncomfortable seeing a known gay actor like Cheyenne Jackson kissing or fondling Kate Winslet, and box-office earnings would nose-dive." Neil Patrick Harris is famously both out and doing well, but he says that for years, "I wasn't thought of in a sexual way, which is easy when you have big ears and are called Doogie all the time." If someone who was a sex symbol and a "superstar" to boot chose to come out, the response might be different. And the process would be even more complicated if said superstar also had a high-profile heterosexual cover relationship, as it's safe to assume at least a few do.

Then again, the fiction that no one — or almost no one — in Hollywood is gay can't last forever. It's already been much remarked-upon that while straight actors can "play gay" (like Sean Penn in Milk), only a very few gay actors are permitted to "play straight." Given that the entire film industry is based on audiences agreeing to believe for a few hours that someone very famous is actually someone else, this seems obviously ludicrous. And perhaps it's true that if one "superstar" — one with enough clout to get movies made regardless of sexual orientation — actually came out, everyone would have to confront the ridiculousness of Hollywood's straight-washing. Still, when the movie industry can campaign against Prop. 8 one day and enforce a "don't ask, don't tell" policy the next, it's no surprise that no one's clamoring to be the first.

On a law school board, somebody posted about famous people they've met. Jake was on the list.

"Jake Gyllenhaal is gayer than a San Francisco IKEA on a Super Bowl Sunday. He's with Reese to boost his profile and Reese wants to look younger."

Said she used to be a celebrity reporter for a major tabloid.

Natalie Portman Back To Vegan After Reading “Eating Animals” said...

Is she vegetarian? Is she vegan? Get ready for some more “What’s Natalie Portman eating?!” news!

The LA Times recently interviewed the 28-year-old actress in a vegan restaurant in downtown Manhattan, (nibbling on a soy-cheese sandwich no less) and got the scoop that Natalie is once more vegan. There had been doubts this was the case in a recent interview she gave with Jake Gyllenhaal, but that’s all cast aside now, and we have author Jonathan Safran Foer to thank for it. Portman scored an early release of his upcoming non-fiction work Eating Animals and switched from vegetarian to vegan immediately after reading it. Here’s a brief description of the book:

"Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, memoir and his own detective work, Eating Animals explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth-and how such tales can lull us into a brutal forgetting."

You might remember Safran Foer for his incredible book (which was made into a movie starring Elijah Wood) titled Everything Is Illuminated.

Anyways, Portman reveals that as a result of the book, she plans on becoming much more involved with animal rights. “There are certain things you can have different opinions on, but then other things, like torturing animals, [are] just wrong,” she said.

We couldn’t have said it better. Check out the rest of the interview here or preorder “Eating Animals” here.

I thought this quote from the article about Bragman sounds like maybe what we're seeing with Jake:

"It kills your soul,” says one young, gay actor in L.A., who requested anonymity. “It’s an insane job [to stay in the closet]. I see the destruction of my close friends. It keeps them closed-hearted. But they get so wrapped up in their success, and they think it’ll make everything better. Then they get [that success], and they become very angry.”

Angry and deeper in the closet.

PR ways said...

The phone interrupts him — it’s someone calling about one of his newest clients, Chaz Bono, daughter of Cher and Sonny Bono. Raised as Chastity, Bono is making the personal and public transition to becoming a transgendered man, and may become the best-known American woman to do so. Bragman has been working closely with Bono, advising her to disclose her gender reassignment, but says, “We’re keeping our powder dry until the time is right, and our time is not right yet.”

But when the celebrity-news Web site TMZ got wind of Bono’s transgender plans in early June, Bragman received a call from TMZ Executive Producer Harvey Levin, an openly gay man, who wanted to run with the story.

“I asked [Levin] for a little time,” the publicist says, “and he was respectful of that.”

A few days later, though, Bragman was sitting inside American Airlines’ Admirals Club at LAX when a call was put through to his cell phone — the National Enquirer had questions about Bono. Bragman usually follows a number of steps when bringing a celebrity out of the closet, and one is to pick a major media outlet that will be sensitive to the coming-out process. He made a decision.

“I didn’t want it to break with the National Enquirer,” Bragman says, “so I called Harvey and told him it was a go. He did it in the most respectful way.”

Heath Ledger
There was more to Heath Ledger than the grinning anarchist in The Dark Knight. He could play innocent and bookish (The Brothers Grimm), tortured (Brokeback Mountain), cocky (10 Things I Hate About You, A Knight's Tale) or, well, psychotic (guess who?). But with a smile a mile wide and eyes blazing with mischief, he was always attractive.

Most alluring as... We're going to plump for his golden-haired, light-hearted turn in A Knight's Tale - but does anyone else quite fancy him in drag as a redheaded nurse in The Dark Knight?

Interests included... Hockey, cricket and snowboarding.

16
Jake Gyllenhaal
He won everyone over as the awkward but magnetic Donnie Darko, but since then he's grown into true leading man territory, mixing great performances in artier fare like Brokeback Mountain and Zodiac with big blockbusters like The Day After Tomorrow and the forthcoming Prince of Persia.

Most alluring as... Well, we're actually partial to his wow-biceps, sparkly dressed rendition of Dreamgirls' And I Am Telling You, which he performed on Saturday Night Live (sadly no longer online). Otherwise, his somewhat nekkid turn in Jarhead.

Interests include... Gyllenhaal's a keen cook and is reportedly planning to open his own organic restaurant.

"Just as what you are feeling in your life affects your acting, what you act in definitely affects what you are feeling in your life. And whether you want it to or not, and even if you don't know it, it bleeds into your life. I made 'Heat' when I was 14 and played a girl who died. A year later, I got into a fight with my mother and cut myself. I had never done it before and I never did it after that, but I think having my wrists bloody in a movie definitely affected my psyche."

VIDEO: John Mayer’s Wild Night In Gay Bar said...

John Mayer kissed a boy and he liked it – allegedly!

Notorious womanizer John took a step over to the other side on Saturday when he stopped by Toucan’s Tiki Lounge, a popular gay club in Palm Springs.

And according to an eyewitness there was more than just drinking and dancing going on – John even made out with a guy!

John was having a great time at the club, going wild to The Black Eyed Peas I Gotta Feeling - being the center of attention as he downed beer and toasted his fellow revelers, men and girls alike.

But the jaw dropper was when, according to an eyewitness, a fellow male patron approached John and planted a big kiss right on his lips – and John seemed to enjoy it! The eyewitness says that that was when the whole place erupted and cheered.

I thought of Jake whn I read it:


BlindGossip – This actor always seemed like such a healthy guy. We’ve seen plenty of photos of him engaging in various forms of exercise and chowing down on wholesome foods. He’s been in shape for every one of his roles thus far, and isn’t one of those guys who has to go into training before making a film. That’s why it came as quite a shock to us to find out that he has been drinking to excess for several years. To the best of our knowledge, he has never gone to rehab, or even acted the fool in public. However, he is consuming about half of a fifth of the hard stuff practically every single day.

I'm wondering about the new Calif pap law that starts in January that outlaws pics that are "personal or familial" -- would something like the Reeke frozen yogurt pics be legal or illegal? It was familial (Reese's 2 kids) but it was in public (although they were probably on private property). Does anyone know?

reposting said...

The new California law makes it a crime to take and sell unauthorized photos of celebrities in "personal or familial activity."

98% of paparazzi pictures are photos of celebrities in "personal or familial activity."

What "authorized" means in this case? Paparazzi will ask permission to take pictures?

Anonymous said...

It should be interesting, especially how the PR Pimp Mutha handles it.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know?

Los Angeles Times and New York Daily have two different interpretations:

"The law, which has been dubbed the "anti-paparazzi bill," enhances an existing law that has handed fines to publications and Web sites posting unsavory or offensive content. Until now, a relatively small fine was the harshest punishment that could be dealt to a media outlet. According to the New York Daily News, this amendment gives celebs the right to sue a publication if the objectionable material was "illegally obtained."

According to the Los Angeles Times, the new law makes it a crime, punishable by up to $50,000, to take and sell unauthorized photos of celebrities in "personal or familial activity."

While few would advocate the invasion of anyone's privacy -- celebrities or otherwise -- this new law could be seen as an erosion of the First Amendment. Freedom of the press and libel laws thus far have been less restrictive of material concerning public figures, who are by nature of their business less subject to privacy laws."

IMO legal. Illegal would be, for example, climbing the garden wall and taking pictures of the celebrities behind it.

Balloon boy gets sick twice during TV interviews said...

The 6-year-old boy at the center of the runaway balloon saga got sick twice on national television when he and his father were asked during separate TV interviews what he meant about his comment that "we did this for a show." Sheriff Jim Alderman says his investigators believe there was no hoax, but will seek a new interview with the family after the CNN broadcast to clarify the statement.

During an ABC interview, Falcon Heene (HEE'-nee) said Friday: "Mom, I feel like I'm going to vomit." He then left the room with his mother and could be heard gagging. During a live interview on NBC shown simultaneously on Friday, Falcon threw up into a container when his father was answering the same question.

Falcon vanished around the time that a homemade helium balloon floated away from his home, setting off a national uproar as authorities scoured the plains of northern Colorado for the youngster.

Anyway, we were in a small party drinking, and my drunk friend said "get this, she used to go out with SUPERMAN" somewhat drunk and to embarrass her. I asked what's he like, she said it turned out he liked to go shopping more than she did. I asked her if she was saying if Superman was gay and she said most certainly. I said "Tom Welling is gay????" and she said "no, the new Superman, Brandon Routh". She seemed quite serious, said he was now just her good friend. The conversation continued and somehow we got from Superman movies to Star Wars movies or something like that, and then she told me Hayden C was gay too.

I don't know why she would lie to me if this was a friend of hers. And my friend didn't act at all surprised (being a friend of hers), so I assume he knew all this already.

And why release them 3 years later if they were only going to release the non-inflammatory ones anyway. It's very odd.

I'm sure there is more than one reason for "late" pictures and Jake's PR team holding on to the pics is one of those reasons.

Anonymous said...

If (IF) PR was the one holding on to the pics, does that mean they commissioned them and bought the rights?

Yes.
NYC Jake, Maggie, Peter and Ramona pictures are proof enough for me.

Good news: Ever since Toothy Tile decided to permanently bury himself in the proverbial Hollywood closet, it's almost as if Lloyd Boy-Toyed has decided to up his bent for dangerous, risk-taking sexual activities. No, not talkin' about getting it on without a condom—or in a car in a West Hollywood parking lot—but something almost as rebelliously mindless: like hitting on a reporter.

Now, even though Lloyd has always had a penchant for doing things like...

...getting his flirt on with other dudes—even with Toothy himself at the Globes, remember?—Lloyd's reserved his guy-on-guy action for behind closed doors, even if he paid for it.

I mean, let's just say up until now, the riskiest thing Lloyd's ever pulled is wondering if the call-boys will tattle or not. Strange he's not like some bigass stars who insist on confidentiality agreements with their mates (whether hired or not) before jumping between the sheets.

But now Lloyd's taken it to the next level and propositioned a pretty well-known reporter, who's interested. And the code was clear: Said hit-on dude was expected—not told—not to tell. It was a gamble. Will it pay off?

Isn't it odd how the older certain stars get, they simply don't seem to be as interested in the watery, come-on games such stealth gay players as Crotch Uh-Lastic prefer. Does that mean with age comes impatience? Or just lack of imagination?

Tough call, really, because if you ask me, it's pretty lively to ask a journo—who could blow your cover in seconds flat—to get it on. Maybe this is the kinkiest way of them all and Crotch and Toothy (ah, poor Toothy) should be taking notes?

Time will tell on this one.

2:11 pm that language is disgusting and unnecessary.

Didn't Ted say that Toothy's beard was keeping him relevant but that he couldn't respect Jake because Jake couldn't respect himself Ted didn't say Toothy couldn't respect himself. I also don't get what Ted is saying by including Jake as a good hubby and dad. Is he saying Reeke is like an old married couple or is being sarcastic cause he included the coffee klatch comment?

Stephen Gately’s Death Becomes A Tale Of Gay Sex, Homophobia And ‘Murder’

Ted said...

September 5, 2008

One Boyishly Bothered Blind Vice

Isn't it interesting Lloyd Boy-Toyed is undertaking his latest media campaign to fight off rumors about everything under the tabloid sun—every topic save the one he wants to get out: that he sometimes likes young dudes in bed. Not Michael Jackson-style, mind you, but he sometimes likes 'em young. And to keep quiet. And you know what that means, doncha girlfriends? Occasionally Mr. Boy-Toyed's gotta give 'em the green. What a cold, hard, cashed-out town this can be, huh?
Let's see, Lloyd's busy mouthing off about his nasty battles with most everybody in the Biz, not to mention his more cherished (and known) companions and relatives. He appears to be a total crank-a-thon, really, but don't believe it for a sec. Oh, some of it's real, that's fer sure, but it's mostly for show, I assure you.

I have firsthand knowledge of Lloyd's more cunning agendas—not to mention the ones he prefers to get underway under the covers. Don't ask me how. I can't tell! I'm a married man now! I would never embark on something as nasty as tattling 'tween the sheets when I've got a superhoney at home. Quite the opposite of how Lloyd goes about things, trust.

Really, though, as sloppy as Lloyd's getting in the attempting-to-score department, he's gonna be out long before our beloved Toothy Tile, I assure you. Oh, and Lloyd-baby, I don't care, really. But, your blind-as-merde fans sure will. I say screw it, already! (Like you have so many guys.)

And It Ain't: Matthew Perry, David Duchovny, Kanye West

* Update 2/10/09 - Ted has eliminated Jon Voight, John Mayer, Ralph Fiennes, John Travolta.

Stephen Gately’s Death Becomes A Tale Of Gay Sex, Homophobia And ‘Murder’

A Columnist Calls Out Stephen Gately's Death As Suspicious. Now All Of Twitter Wants Her Dead

Don't blame yourself if you've never heard of Jan Moir. We hadn't until today, either. But then Jan penned a Daily Mail column about the mysterious death of Boyzone singer Stephen Gately. And according to those blowing up Twitter about it, she said some very mean things about the homosexual lifestyle.
This is a snapshot of Twitter taken just moments ago:
...
Why's everyone so upset? Something about, uh, the way she phrased things:
...
The Twitter (and Facebook) kids are so upset, they're filing notifications with Britain's Press Complaints Commission and circulating the contact information of the Mail's advertisers. It's unclear whether the Mail will issue an apology, but the newspaper is undoubtedly paying attention; it already changed Moir's headline from "Why there was nothing 'natural' about Stephen Gately's death" to "A strange, lonely and troubling death . . ."

Comic shuts the door on his closet life

Kevin Meaney is out and proud, but it wasn't always this way.

The 52-year-old standup comedian -- who got his break on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in the '80s -- was married for 10 years. He and ex-wife Mary Ann had a daughter, with whom he currently lives in New York.

It took a stint seven years ago on Broadway's Hairspray to change his life. ``Being on Broadway is like going to gay school,'' said the former SNL regular from a Florida touring stop in Stuart. ``It gave me the courage to come out and be who I am. It's a relief.''

Telling Mary Ann wasn't as hard as he envisioned.

``I just walked in and said, `Honey, I'm homo!' '' cracked Meaney, who came out almost three years ago. ``I think it was definitely tough on her . . . but I always did the cleaning, the cooking, the decorating. I wore aprons!''

Changing teams hasn't hurt his career. ``It's certainly helped my standup,'' he admitted, ``because comedy is based on honesty.''

Sienna spilled nothing others didn't hear about last year when they e-mailed them. I found it funny that a day or so after that set visit, Reese made a visit to the set and then Jake flew to DC with her for that Avon walk and then she returned to the set, LOL!!!

They also thought that he was lying about going to Heath's memorial, they wanted the brokies to feel better but they thought tat he was full of shit when he said he did, he response sounded fake , they had to embelish. There was a reason why they took over 2 months to write about a set visit/lunch that too no more than a few hours if that.

Anonymous said...

Ted and Lisa "said" Jake was gay? Was it a feeling they got or did Jake tell them he was gay? Because having a feeling, on something you want to believe going into it, and knowing it because he told them, are two different things.

I hardly think that Jake the closet case was going to be forthcoming to two strangers he met at lunch.

Anonymous said...

I saved their e-mails, one of them didn't believe him, they wouldn't dare post that in their LJ so they posted what he said and left it like that. Would explain why they took so long, 2 slash writers to write about it. A lot of things that they were unhappy with and worded things to sooth a pissed off fandom or whats left of it.

If he went his handlers would have made sure it was reported unless there was a private service.

I never believed he went to any memorial services.

Jake didn't say anything, it was how they felt after the lunch. They also didn't think he went to the memorial.

Also he told them that the next film he was going to do was the Joe Namath movie which was a lie it was Pop, and he knew it going into film Nailed, it was announced a few days later. He may have been told not to mention it ahead of time, it was a big announcement but all he had to say is that I have a lot of projects coming up.

That Namath project will never see the light of day IMO, but he may have not known that at the time.

"Why is it being discussed yet again?"

Some of us weren't here when it first came out. Besides what's wrong with discussing it again? You guys all re-discuss Heath and Michelle. At least this gay-lunch is about Toothy-Jake. And plus sometimes talking about something again brings up new ideas, new perspectives etc. If you don't like it 10:23 you can scroll. Personally I wonder if you're a Babbler or a troll upset about how 2 people who spent time with Jake said they thought he was without a doubt 100% gay because discussing it upsets you so much and you want everyone to stop.

10:32 I heard about it too as did you. Ted and Lisa were confused after the lunch as it was discussed above due to the reeking that took place after, would explain wy it took them so long to write it up. Them thinking he was gay is not new, but what is new to me and others here i would think is that they thought that he was lying when he said that he went to Heath's memorial, now thats not re-hashing that is news to me.

I thought he was lying to them because that's what he knew that they wanted to hear. Apparently they thought the same but decided to play politicians and not upset the fans.

He knew they would ask. Don't you find it odd that in their story he said "of course" when they asked if he went. Rather odd and distant reaction and that was it. Anything added after that was added by them to make it seem more "real', what BS.

Anonymous said...

Jake didn't go to that memorial and I think most fans know he didn't, he lied and Ted and Lisa knew he lied.

Too painful for some to realize that not only did he not say anything and lied about going to the memorial but lied to some brokies (He knew who they were, they were screened and people gave his handlers a heads up).

So many slashers have stopped writhing E/J and J/H slash.

Ted said to people at the Oxford gathering that his gayday went ping. i think that was about it.

Although Jake was apparently poking around to see if Ted was gay and Jewish.

I was at the Oxford/Brokie gathering, just mentioned pinging and asking both he and Lisa about being Jewish, don't recall the gay part but do you actually believe he would ask that? The J-date, the Jewish dating service came up, that was in the LJ account.

I don't know if they were confused about the on set public reeking or the non-public reeking in DC w/o the pics just sightings. I think that was the time his Grandmother died and he didn't go to the funeral.

John Mayer? Didn't one of the rags say that he and Jennifer Aniston were getting back together, LOL!!

Ted and Lisa were NOT confused about the Reeking. They didn't think that all of a sudden Jake turned straight. Holding hands doesn't make someone straight. (see Drake above lol). They know Reeking was and is all PR bullshit.

Anonymous said...

They were confused about a lot of things, not about the set visit but the GF speaking spanish story, the Jewish dating service story, the BS about the memorial service, the Namayh BS (although I can understand that one) and the pinging, it all made for a confusing lunch, they didn't know what to make of it, that's why it took them so long to write it.

They knew that the GF/ Jewish dating thing was for cover but why lie about the memorial?

Was that fucking PR bullshit as well?

Oh yeah, they asked him if he was Matilda's Godfather, DUH! That was probably one of the few truthful things he said, and why would they bother to ask that? They know that Heath confirmed it already, what they should have asked is if he saw his G. Daughter. I guess it wasn't a good idea to ask any follow-up questions or the lunch would be over.

Anonymous said...

I noticed that there is silence over the memorial. I think everyone knows he lied to them about going, hence the silence.

At the time I thought they lied and never asked them and they just made up that part of the story because it sounded false. Now it seems they maybe did asked and they felt that he lied.

That picture of Drake and a woman proves that holding hands means nothing. Honestly, he looks super gay in that photo, despite being with a woman. He looks less gay when he is with Adam. Even when they were kissing.

I can see Jake in MdR. Wiki lists a low average income per person there (66K) becuase the data is from 2000 - it's a lot more than that. These are waterfront homes with private boat docks. I can very easily see Jake having a guarded gated home and a yacht so he can get away from the crowds, fans, paps - plus he seems like a "water" person. Playa del Rey is similar to MdR and there's a smaller chance he might be there but PdR is closer (underneath the flight path) to LAX and has more noise/pollution.

Anonymous said...

So many slashers have stopped writhing E/J and J/H slash.

Part of it has to do with Jake's non reaction re. Heath's death, I agree. But partly it has to do with Heath's passing itself. If he didn't (accidentally ? ) kill himself, he would still be here for his daughter. Probably the relationship with Gemma Ward would have been over by now and he would have been with some other chick. Die hard "Jeath" fans would look for sightings and tweets of them together and the slash writing would have happily continued. Leo and Kate fanfic is still in full force and Titanic is over a decade ago. There are Leo/Kate fans who still hope they'll hook up one day. ;)
