Can Hollywood "cure" gayness?

Luke Evans
Luke Evans


The Advocate, September 3, 2002

The Advocate: How did you decide you were going to be open about your sexuality?

Luke Evans: Well it was something I'd spoken to a lot of people about, including my boyfriend at the time - we've broken up now - but at the time when I just got Taboo, I knew that even though my part was a straight character, everybody knew me as a gay man and, in my life in London, I never tried to hide it. I knew I was going to have to do interviews with gay magazines, so I thought, ‘Well, I’m going to have to be open’. It’s who I am. And if people don’t like it, then I don’t want their jobs. I've never been a very good liar, which is another thing...

The Advocate: Aren't actors all good liars?

Luke Evans: Well, it's not nice. Look at George Michael, let's say. I mean, he hid it for so many years, and then he gets found out in a really awful way... Y'know, you start a slippery slope downward, and I don't want to start that at 22. If that means I'm going to be a poor man at 60, then at least I've lived a happy, open, gay life and not had to hide from anybody.

The Advocate: Do you think it might be different in the UK than in America?

Luke Evans: Well, it depends on how big you are. It's not a big issue, and it's never going to be a big issue for me; whether I'm successful or if I weren't successful, at least I'll never have that skeleton in the closet they can rattle out. Y'know what I mean?


Eight years later...


Wales On Sunday, September 19 2010

RISING actor Luke Evans is rapidly gaining star status after landing yet another major Hollywood role and romancing Charlotte Church’s ex – ex-PA, that is.

Fresh from playing breastplate-baring Zeus in Immortals and Apollo in Clash Of The Titans, 31-year-old Evans is sword fighting once again in a re-make of The Three Musketeers.

And Evans, from Aberbargoed, is described as “top farmer totty” for his role in Brit-com Tamara Drewe, has a special reason to be careful with his blade now he is dating stunning fashion industry marketing expert Holly Goodchild.

Miss Goodchild, 27, former personal assistant to Welsh singing superstar Church, said at the Tamara Drewe movie premiere: “Luke’s lovely – we’re really old friends and it just sort of happened.”

She added: “We are nowhere near engaged but things are really good.”

You obviously don't know what you're talking about or you just pretend.
Jake's people can post fake tweets and sightings, but can NOT stop millions of people from posting tweets and FB sightings.


Don't start that. Follow the conversation. This was originally in reference to Jake's people, not regular people. Of course no one can stop regular people - don't be obtuse. But Jake's people can have sightings faked on twitter & fb. And do.

Pointing out flaws in your logic and repeating basic facts is not being obtuse.

You provided zero examples of sightings "faked" by Jake's people, nothing to support your opinion.

Do you expect us to ignoire confirmed sightings? To forget how many times we know that Jake and Austin stayed apart when they weren't working? How Austin prefers Puerto Rico to being with Jake? How Jake prefers Marcus to celebrating Austin's birthday?

His (Luke Evans') Immortals co-star Henry Cavill is rumored to be gay too. Back in 2006 when he was in LA, he was with all gay men and was always at gay clubs. You can find pix if you do a Google search. Then as soon as it was announced he got the Superman role, studios "suddenly" announced that he had just gotten engaged, yet there has not been one picture of him with this supposed fiance...

Immortals Stars Henry Cavill and Luke Evans Talk Sex Scenes

Damn, I thought it's about their gay sex scenes.

DL said...

Here is Luke Evans in Cosmo, sharing his tips on what women need to know about men. Although he doesn't actually claim to be straight, the article clearly implies that he is. Some excerpts (link to full article below):

2. They Think About Old Girlfriends

"You never get over an ex, but you learn to live with it. A friend told me that recently and I think it's a great phrase."

4. They Like to Be Romantic

"Just the other week, I sang to a very close female friend. She almost cried. And I love to cook! I've impressed hundreds of women with my cooking. And they always come back for more."

5. They Have Platonic Girl Pals...Sort Of

"Absolutely we can have female friends and not want to have sex with them. You dream about having sex with them, but you don't actually have sex with them."

(Maybe the reason you don't actually have sex with them is because YOU'RE GAY.)

The fact that it's "gay-oriented" means nothing since a lot of fangirls young and old are into slash and that's what OMG has become, a slash blog like all thise Orlando/Viggio and Elijah/dom LJ's that popped up during the LOTR days, no difference including the "shout-outs" and the actors reading their LJ's.

Yes 5:21, that's why I find it disturbing.

According to DL, there is a real battle being waged over Luke's wiki entry, with someone constantly removing references to his being out earlier in his career. The person making those changes hasn't changed any other wiki pages, and signed up around the time the article about his dating the pa came out last fall. And apparently a Luke is gay thread has been removed from IMDB.

Newly single George Clooney is allegedly having a "fling" with boob-punching blonde Stacy Keibler, WWE "Diva" wrestler and Dancing with the Stars finalist. I once watched a video of the lanky, model-thin Keibler wrestling a lady with big fake boobs. It was like watching a praying mantis devour a bunch of grapes. Sidenote: Did you know WWE Divas have an event called a "bra and panties" match, in which the goal is to strip your opponent's clothes off, then kick her in the face while she cowers in naked shame? There's a Women's Studies PhD thesis waiting to happen on this topic.

First Official Photo: Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Warner Bros has released the first official photo of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises. The photo, which appeared on the official website, TheDarkKnightRises.com, has a file name of “selina_kyle.jpg”. Most comic fans know that Kyle is the secret identity of the Batman villainess… but I find it interesting that the file uses that name and not “Catwoman”. Is it possible that this might not be Hathaway’s complete Catwoman outfit? A source earlier revealed that the Catwoman costume is more “tactical, like the comic book,” “less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman costumes”, and would feature goggles. This looks exactly like what was described (although the goggles look more like high tech glasses).

I like the costume itself; but the hair has got to go. It's in the way. I always see Catwoman with short hair, because it is more practical. I much prefer goggles or high tech glasses to a mask. Long hair is in the way, and the hair and mask is too reminiscent of Julie Newmar to me. She was great in her way, but I think Chris Nolan will do something different. Short hair can be really sexy, just look at Halle Berry. I guess her Catwoman wasn't that great tho? And the motorcycle - it dwarfs Catwoman and with tires like that, it must have a turning circle of a Mack truck. It needs to be streamlined and elegant lines - to show off Catwoman's feline elegance of figure and to give the impression of being nimble and agile.

Just my humble opinion of course. Certainly a woman can be strong and intelligent, but have her womanly sexiness too.

And Jackie, could you please delete the misogynist comment above at 10:17? Thanks! :)

Mark Wahlberg Warns Leonardo DiCaprio About Taylor Lautner's Bod, Good Looks

Mark Wahlberg is feeling his age:

"I am sitting at a table with a gentleman who is better looking than you and is in better shape than me," Wahlberg said to DiCaprio earlier today at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's annual luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel. "So, we're both out of a job, dude. Taylor Lautner! We're screwed."

"It's over, dude," Wahlberg continued as the room burst into laughter. "Titanic and Boogie Nights were a long time ago. I accept it. I had a good run and on to the next."

Lautner told E!'s Marc Malkin:

"I don't even know the word to describe being here," the Twilight star exclusively told me. "It's so odd. It's such an honor. I'm up on the stage and talking in front of people like that? The people that I looked up to my entire life? Hearing words like that from Mark and everybody it's just really surreal."

11:53, I agree - that one went a little too far with the theme as well. There must be a happy medium without sacrificing a woman's power and femaleness. It's probably the most difficult of the villain roles to do right. We'll see. Joker was perfection. But women and girls need a superhero too - not a caricature of a a woman, but not a man either. :)

Cavill, for when he was living here in West Hollywood and working here, hung out with nothing but gay guys. Then as his fame rose, we noticed his gay friends got protective and started screaming he wasn't gay, before we even asked. Then pictures they posted with him that were on Facebook started to disappear.

Some pics are around, on Facebook and Google, yes, but some have literally vanished. I don't know what the big deal is.

Did Queen Latifah (Finally) Just Come Out?

Look, we’re not in the business of outing people here at UB, but has Queen Latifah ever really even been in? Her relationship with her personal trainer, Jeanette Jenkins, is widely reported to be far more than simply professional. Latifah regularly brings Jenkins as her +1 to events, Jenkins is often referred to as Latifah’s partner, and the two even own a home together.

We think you’d be hardpressed to find more than a couple LGBT people who don’t already assume that the Queen is already out and proud, even though she has never publicly acknowledged what most of the world is already thinking.

Until now?

“ …I just like ladies who have class. Period. And if it’s “T and A” you’re sellin’, that’s fine, as long as that’s what you’re selling. But you don’t have to show everything, you know? You can hold some back and just be yourself and let your personality shine and let your individuality show. To me, that’s sexier. A confident woman is a sexy woman, in my opinion. And I think guys find that to be the same way.”

“You don’t have to show everything; you don’t have to put it all out there to attract a guy. Because what kind of guy are you gonna attract? What is he really looking for? If you wanna be a booty call, I guess you can throw it all out there. (laughs) But if you’re looking for a relationship with someone who respects you and respects things other than your body — your mind, your spirit, your personality, your smile — then you have to kind of exude that more so than just yo’ booty and yo’ tithes [sic].”

Anonymous said...

^^Uh, no. If you go back and re-read what the person above wrote, it says "not mutally exclusive". In the real world, I find that people do most times appreciate the entire person, and just because a man may admire a woman's body (to his own individual preference) does not make him undesirable, nor is it the only thing he notices about her and not always the first thing. Same for a woman.

Queen Latifah's advice is for very young, inexperienced women and girls, to help them learn to navigate in the social sexual world.

We need to acknowledge that a mature, grown up woman has the intelligence to discern the kind of sexual relationship she wants, whether a strictly monogamous one or a booty call only if she wants it, and how revealing she wants to dress, without her being labeled or judged (or harassed), just as men do and have done forever. It's just another way of restraining women's freedom otherwise.

Finally, someone else remembers this about Cavill!

He hung out with NOTHING but gay men when he was living in West Hollywood back in 2006. He also had a MySpace and almost all of his top friends were gay and they had photos with him. Then when he started getting recognized from The Tudors, all those photos somehow magically "disappeared". Now he doesn't even mention the word gay.

I also find it funny how a few months after it was announced he got Superman, he suddenly gets "engaged" to some girl, yet not ONE picture of them together has surfaced...I'm guessing he wanted to quiet the rumors because he's so desperate for fame in America.

IMDb said...

Henry Cavill auditioned for the lead role in Batman Begins, but lost out to Christian Bale. In 2005, he became a young contender for the role of James Bond, and performed in a final screentest. However, the producers believed Cavill was too young for the role, which then went to Daniel Craig. He also auditioned for the role of Superman in Superman Returns, and was reportedly under heavy consideration before the October 2004 casting of Brandon Routh. Due to this; In the December 2005 edition of Empire Magazine, he was dubbed "...the most unlucky man in Hollywood".

The new photos of him as Superman look good, his facial expression - I like the classic superheroes - Batman, Spiderman. His Superman looks like a more complicated soul than past portrayals. Amy Adams is Lois Lane, it sounds like a great cast. I love Laurence Fishburne too.

I can see this. He did look a little boyish when he was younger, but as he gets older, he's getting more attractive. Daniel Craig makes a great James Bond, and I can see Henry as James Bond too. He's incredible in those Dunhill men's frangrance ads.

Superman hasn't really been one of my favorite superheroes, I wasn't speaking of an individual actor's portrayal, just maybe the character itself.

DL gossip said...

I even sent in an anon tip to Perez, of all people, way back in late 2008 with a suspicion about Cavill and another actor and Perez didn't reply back, nor wrote a post about my inquiry.

Soon after Cavill was announced as the new superman, not even 48 hours later, this actor who didn't even have a gf, was engaged to a girl.

Sometimes the PR machine give us the clues to speculate someone is gay when someone is suddenly talking about, engaged to, or photographed in major cities with a beard. To the masses, they are clueless, but to people like us, we see the writing on the wall and know what's up.

DL gossip said...

Actually Perez did out him back in 2009, but then after about 4 or 5 postings on him, he suddenly stopped, which I'm guessing Cavill's PR people paid him to not discuss his sexuality, because he was hell-bent on outing him. That's why I don't even read Perez's site anymore - he's allowed himself to be paid off by PR people rather than report gossip.

It's so nice to see I'm not the only one who had my eyes open with the Cavill situation. But like you said, the masses believe what the mainstream media throw in their faces, so they refuse to believe anything else.

My guess is that they'll stop trying to beard Luke Evans, but they'll keep getting him photoshoots in women's mags and fashion mags, complete with copy about "what men look for in women" or "what women need to know about men."

For example, the link below is to WestEast magazine (it's only viewable in Flash and you have to dig far into the magazine). There's a photoshoot of Evans, accompanied by a brief Q&A, which includes these little gems:

What's your view on the ladies? "They are delicate beautiful creatures who keep brutes like me in check."

What's the most important thing to remember to look for in a woman? "Her skills in ... the kitchen."

No, Luke doesn't say he's straight, and the quotes are harmless and probably manufactured (he may not even be aware of them), but most people reading the Q&A will just assume he's straight. If his Hollywood career takes off, he'll probably start showing up on "eligible bachelor" lists as the "Welsh hunk who makes women swoon."

This conservative and religious actor from a 90's family sitcom is gay. He's not out, but there have been rumors and he has dated several high profile women. He tried recently (like in the last 5 years) to enter a conversion program that would make him 'not gay.' He dropped thousands of dollars on the program and believed it was successful for a year or two. However, our source said that the actor now realizes the program didn't work and is now seeing a therapist that is helping him to accept and embrace his homosexuality. Good for him!

Actually Perez did out him back in 2009, but then after about 4 or 5 postings on him, he suddenly stopped, which I'm guessing Cavill's PR people paid him to not discuss his sexuality, because he was hell-bent on outing him. That's why I don't even read Perez's site anymore - he's allowed himself to be paid off by PR people rather than report gossip.

Imo, you would be guessing correctly. I am damned sure - and it's been posted several times over many DL years and in very sober tones I might add - mangers and agents pay off people like Perez, Lainey, etc to skewer gossip in their client's (very, erm, straight) favour.

Exhibit 1: Perez, imo, was on the verge of outing Jake Gyllenhaal at the Toronto Film Festival some years ago. I am sure of this. He ran a very loaded piece on Jake and that guy Adam from the OC, separate pictures, heavy hints and drew lovehearts on Jake's sunglasses and Adam's crotch. He had 'exciting news' to break. All you needed were the pictures. What else could it be?

Then he went quiet on the subject. No more was said. It never happened. Then suddenly Perez went all Jake is a straight ManHo with straight cycle buddies. A real 360. As far as his piece went, it may be that he had mistaken Adam for Jake's "alleged bf" at the time, Austin Nichols, and was got to before he could reek havoc but his patter became increasingly straight-orientated, coincidentally just as he was starting to get a leg up the commercial ladder in Hollywood wth his Perez shows etc. Many people thought he'd been bought and paid for on a variety of fronts. A poster here said he knew that the game went like this: go after a smaller actor and throw him under the bus (like Wentworth Miller, NPH, Lance Bass) but leave the big Tom Cruise-esque stars alone. The smaller personalities would be sacrificed in this manner and the info people like Perez got fed often came from the agents themselves, protecting their larger clients whilst throwing the Lance Basses of this world under the bus. Whether that's true or not, but it wouldn't surprise, the amount of sick money-grubbing there is out there.

Interestingly, you may remember that the DL's very own Keram stated a thread about 18 months - 2 years ago claiming Gyllenhaal had had a fling with Henry Cavill during filming in Canada and that Jake got flown up there, finding a used condom in the trash and busting Cavill as having cheated on him with a co-star (male, forget his name).

While it all has an element of highschool drama and BS it alluded to the behind the scenes potential affairs we all speculate could happen away from prying eyes.

Cavill was virtually unknown then so it was an odd pairing as far as starting deliberate gossip went. There was no hint Cavill was lined up for star roles at that time. More recently the Daily Mail ran an article about Cavill getting engaged to a UK horsewoman, much to everyone's surprise, and showed a photo of her with a horse, rather than with Cavill (clearly she was seen out everywhere with him up to that point. Not).

DL gossip said...

Correction (11:59 AM), Jake wasn't filming in Canada 2 years ago, that would have been in 2009. He was filming in Canada in 2010. I said that it happened whilst he was in the UK filming and that would have been in 2008. I also said that he flew to Ireland from the UK for the alleged trysts.

The Canada fan fic was most likely added because Henry was filming a movie then with Isabella Lucas whom Jake was allegedly seeing at the time.

It's hard to keep track though when you are making things up.

Not an odd "pairing" since as it's already been pointed out before, Henry was known to hang 0ut with gay guys and clubs and there were pics on the net that seem to have disappeared and this is going back to 2006, Perez also pretty much outed Henry back then.

It's very easy for people to create shit to make it seem legit, the internet is very handy that way. To make something sound legit you have to name people that aren't "suspect".

There have been gay rumors about Henry for years, not as constant like Cruise or Clooney but enough for some fangirl to pick him to spin a tale.

The Jake/Henry pairing is pure fanfic, Jake wishes he nailed him.

I'm more apt to believe that Henry hooked up with Luke Evans or his Tudors co-star Rhys.

DL gossip said...

To 12:09 PM:

I should really have re-read your post and not been as obliging as it's quite aggressive towards me and I was not 'making things up', it was all gossip gleaned from the internets at the time. There were a lot of deviations on the same theme and I don't keep a precise record, I don't need to.

I have remembered wrongly, but was not 'making things up'. I have no reason to believe anyone but remembered at the time your posts had some sincerity about them. Clearly the waters were muddied by other bits of gossip which may or may not have tied in.

I do seem to recall a possible Keram post claiming Jake had caught Cavill out via a used condom. I also do not know if you are friend or foe here. You could be someone's PR on the offensive for all I know.

Fighting over semantics is pointless, the issue was more about the closeting of actors and the use of vehicles like Perez to work in the favour of agencies, etc.

To the person that said there is no gossip anymore I think it has come full circle. The internet-reading public know that actors closet, the term 'beard' is commonplace as is fauxmance so there's no real shock or intrigue value anymore. We all wearily accept the closet is still in full swing and there seems to be nothing much anyone can do about it.

Hilarious that someone would use Jake allegedly seeing Isabella Lucas at the time as an excuse for why Jake could not possibly have had an affair with Henry. In fact it makes me believe the rumors are true. Jake has not been involved with any woman since Kirsten. The bearding with Reese and the disastrous bearding with Swift dont count. Hes actually being quite good lately. No bearding and no blow jobs in dark alleys.

So In He Can't Be Out?

Boy Culture reader Joseph sent me an e-mail with a provocative question: Why has rising-star Brit actor Luke Evans gone back into the closet? Or was he bisexual all along?
...
I know I have plenty of readers who say that NOTHING about a performer's private life should be of interest or reported, but I wonder about the ones who are less resolute and yet who still are against outing—is it outing to remind a formerly on-the-record-as-out actor that he's, you know, gay? Or is it wrong to bring that up and ask, "Hey, so, you used to identify as gay...are you now identifying as straight? Or bisexual?"

Note: Evans's Wikipedia page used to have references to his clearly sourced interviews in which he talked about being gay. Now, nothing. Well, except for this warning:

(screen capture)

It's distressing that someone who had been so open would now be hiding behind a warning about how "potentially libelous or harmful" it is to call a gay person gay.

Hollywood’s Next Big Action Star Is Gay

Have you heard of action star Luke Evans? Maybe not yet, but he's in a bunch of big upcoming action movies. That means its time for his PR team to shove him back in the closet. But that's going to be pretty tough since he's already talked about his boyfriends and love of gay porn.
Evans (no relation to Chris "Captain America" Evans, though we don't doubt he wouldn't mind having relations with him) is a former theater actor who is going to be costarring in some of the next few years hottest titles like The Hobbitt, The Three Musketeers, Immortals, and The Raven. He even got to sit on a Comic-Con panel with Kellan Lutz and Henry Cavill. Talk about a gay dream come true. The problem is it seems like someone wants Evans to go back in the closet.

In 2002, he was starring in the fagtastic Boy George musical Taboo in London, but playing a straight man. Here is what he told gay magazine The Advocate about coming out.
...
When AfterElton finally got a response from Evans PR flack about what was going on with his Wikipedia page and the status of his sexual orientation, here is what they said:

I do not comment on my client's personal lives in the media. As for Luke, he did so once, a long time ago when he was an inexperienced, young actor and now with maturity and hindsight, he has learned not to engage the press in his personal life again.

Did he steal that one directly from the Anderson Cooper playbook, or does it just seem like it? Not talking about his personal life is the least of it. Since giving these quotes and being packaged as a rough and tumble Hollywood leading man, Evans has been reportedly dating a woman and giving dodgy quotes to British Cosmo about how he's looking for a "special someone." Oh please, queen, no one is buying it. Even the article that mentions his date with a female PR exec (ahem) mentions that she is listed as "single" on Facebook as if to say, "We all know that tree has got the wrong bark, Mary."

Now, who knows, Evans may be bisexual or pansexual and he may have learned his lesson about opening up to crazy websites about his porn collection, but one thing is for sure: This guy is not straight. So, what's the big fucking deal? There's an ever-expanding list of actors who have been openly gay throughout their careers with a good deal of success, why not add Evans to that? While his orientation may turn off some audience members, we're sure even more will be turned off by being lied to. This man is playing a hobbit and a Greek god for criminy's sake! The only thing gayer than that is if he took a role as Liza Minnelli's personal masseur.

I honestly hope that Evans will do the right thing, fire his publicist, and at least talk a little bit about his personal life. It's going to take a lot to stand up to the homophobic Hollywood machinery, but remember this: the only thing worse than being in the closet is failing miserably at going back into it.

Is Superman's Henry Cavill Gay? ? ? said...

April 2011

A while back we saw that our friend Corey Spears happened to have a bunch of photos on Facebook with the actor Henry Cavill; We thought that was interesting, and kept that in mind as time went by. We then heard, from different reliable people here and there, that he was gay; publicly Henry denied this and said he just happened to have alot of gay friends, but you know the saying: where there's smoke, there's fire.

After Henry was announced as the new Superman, we went on Corey's page to see some of the old photos he'd posted of him and Henry, and they had ALL been removed. There used to be a ton of them, and now, not one. Don't you think that's a little coincidental? That all of the photos of Henry with a bunch of gay guys have totally been removed? we don't know... we think there's something to expose here. And we just wanted to provide you with the info so you could pursue it if you wanted to.
