"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane says that the character of Stewie is gay, according to The Los Angeles Times.
"We had an episode that went all the way to the script phase in which Stewie does come out,” MacFarlane told Playboy in an interview. "But we decided it’s better to keep it vague, which makes more sense because he’s a 1-year-old."
MacFarlane also revealed that radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh and former Bush administration strategist Karl Rove are set to play themselves on a future episode of the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Limbaugh previously made a cameo on the show in 2007.
It's full speed ahead for a sequel to this summer's "Wolverine."
Variety reports that Christopher McQuarrie, who worked on the first "X-Men" movie uncredited, has been tapped to write the film's script.
Meanwhile, Bryan Singer, the director of the first two "X-Men" will take on a feature film version of "Battlestar Galactica," according to Variety.
The heirs of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel won a round in court against DC Comics and Warner Bros., according to The Hollywood Reporter. A judge ruled on Wednesday that they had recaptured rights to key portions of the character's origin story, including the first two weeks of the classic Superman comic strip.
At the box office this weekend: "District 9," "The Time Traveler's Wife," "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard," "Bandslam" and "Ponyo."
There was also an episode where he exhibited a tendency towards playing downhome bluegrass, does that make him a hillbilly?
I wish people like you wouldn't get their panties in a bunch over a cartoon.
Hey Cynthia Knowlton: Have you ever heard of CONTINUITY?
It isn't rational to give us dozens of incidents where Stewie exhibits blatantly hetero behavior, and then announce he's gay.
I just wish people like you were brighter.
oh yeah we had our speculations about stewie( olive juice you too) not that much of a suprise, but hey its all good.
Stewie is omni-sexual, girls, boys, dogs, S&M, bondage. He just wants to feel loved, it doesn't matter who he gets it from, or how.
Holy crap! I don't know what's worse some of you d-bags' reactions to such a silly issue or the fact that I actually sat here and read every last one of them. I want the last 10 minutes of my life back! LOL!!!
Stewie....Gay? , NO WAY, REALLY !!!
RJ and Hildy: Did you not read the story? Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy, is the one who said that Stewie is gay. This is not an analysis, and no one is speculating. MacFarlane is presenting this as fact.
And, anyway, what does it matter? It's a cartoon! I just wish people would work on their reading comprehension!!
Love the show. Love Stewie. Even better is the fact that he straddles the fence. Jokes can go both ways (no pun intended) and still be hilarious. Keep up the good work!
I always thought he was bi-sexual. He was in love with his babysitter until she invited her boyfriend over, he loved the little blond haired actress, he always had sexy parties with ladies running around him. He also made sexual references towards Brian's son, and innuendos towards men. I guess he was covering it up all along. I love this show. Stewie is the star. Love him!
Stewie always struck me as bisexual due to his many attractions to both males and females.
when asked how Stewie felt about his newly discovered sexuality, he said "I feel right Brian, I feel right." – end quote!
if you all put your glasses on you could see that hes looking at something out the window.
BRiley- you are reading way too much into a cartoon drawing. Read the story again, it only made it to the "script phase", so that animation is not from the episode in which he comes out. Besides, it's a cartoon- get over it.
Cut. Print. Gay.
B. Riley.... are you some kind of crap starter? I mean jeez you see a picture on the internet and automatically wanna say "oh well y would they pick that picture??!! they are implying that its bad to come out!!! .... grow up! maybe they chose that picture bc for some wierd reason they knew you would be on here reading this and now they are pissed that you would ASSUME they were bashing you.
What do these people know? Stewie is a baby and a cartoon character to boot!! This is a waste of journalistic time. To have these analysts studying cartoons and propogandising their findings is taking away from the enjoyment of them. Let's just ignore these cretins and sit back and laugh!!!
i already knew he was gay...
I think it's better to leave it vague – with Stewie flippin gback and forth between being in love with a couple of different girls – and then dressing up as a girl, doing gay song and dance numbers, and making passes at various males and Brian – it's much funnier becuase it's not an answered question
What a waste of news space!
SAD SAD SAD
C'mon captain obvious
Too Too funny!
Well, of course Stewie is gay. Who didn't know this?? LOL
It's not a huge surpise.
B. Riley: He looks surprised. It's a funny picture. Besides that coming to terms with your sexuality can be a very horrifying experience for some people, so it's not totally off par.
"I love you, Brian."
"What was that?"
"Olive Juice, Brian."
"Olive Juice Too. <3 "
Next in breaking news...Snoop Dogg admits to smoking marijuana...
There's been many episodes where Stewie exhibited interest in girls. He does seem rather attached to Brian, but because Brian is a dog, I don't think that means Stewie is gay.
Besides, to put it in terms Seth MacFarlane can appreciate, a straight Stewie is MUCH funnier than a gay Stewie.
Limbaugh was on the Star Wars episode
Maybe Stewie looks that way because he just found Rush Limbaugh and Karl Rove are going to be on his show.
lol. I figured he was gay. Its all cool.
I thought "news" was supposed to encompass something we don't already know.
Limbaugh and Rove are going to appear on The Family Guy??? They either have a great sense of humor or have never watched the show.
Way to go Seth!
What's up with the picture of Stewie looking all horrified? It implies that being gay is a bad thing.
