Zach Braff: I'm still straight

If you still check, a site that the actor's rep says has been dormant since 2006, you would've seen a note posted this morning purportedly from Braff revealing that he was gay.

The letter, addressed to Braff's fans, says in part: "I have been hiding this secret inside me for too long...The human mind can only bare [sic] so much before it explodes in emotions, and well... it is time I let the world know. I am excited and proud to announce that I am an open member of the homosexual community."

But the letter was the work of a hacker, Braff's rep confirms to CNN.

The actor, who stars in the upcoming "Oz: The Great and the Powerful," adds that he's "still straight. But not too straight; still love musicals and brunch..."

    Wow, I doubt that this article, was directed towards any of you low-lifes who are now above my comment. Do you not have lives? Or do you have sit and critique everyone else's who seems to be and probably is more successful than yourselves? Me personally? I like the show "Scrubs" So you all can find a nice closet somewhere, pick out the rankiest shirt in it, and within the space thats left there, you can climb in and go F*** yourselves. 🙂

    So, he admitted it and then changed his mind. Big whoop. I just hate it when people blame their own drunken indiscretions on hackers. That's so 2010.

    Sorry Zach. If you're not "too straight" that must mean you're "somewhat gay", (not that there's anything worng with that). Whether you call it brunch, lunch or just stuffing your face, everyone has to eat. Liking musicals makes you a dork not gay.

    What I find most odd, is the posts here that all agree that he is gay...I am going to chalk those up to wishful thinking of some gay folks, or jealousy of some straight folks. Personally, I don't give a crap either way. He has made me laugh through his shows and work, and that was his only job. What he does aside from that...I couldn't care less. If he says publicly that he isn't, then he isn't. If he says later that he is, then he is. It does not change the price of my morning coffee, nor how much it costs to fill my car with gas. So, tho I seriously doubt that he is gay, unless he is sleeping with my barista, or the guy who rings up my gas, and it somehow gets me a discount on those 2 items....I couldn't care less.

      Well said! I agree completely. Who cares? How does any of this change my daily life? It doesn't. Still a fan, will always be a fan. Waiting for his cameo on Cougar Town next season.

    I care! So tired of cute, sweet guys coming out (Lance, Clay, Ricky, etc.)....... I mean, it's all well & good for them & more power to 'em, be yourself & all, but not so fun for us gals who love them. Zach is straight & proud, thank God! Adore him!!! LOL

    Strangely enough Anthony Weiner also claimed he was hacked, we all know how that ended. He may deny it, but his boyfriend loves packing his fudge!

    It must be funny to be a celeb like this, always reading BS like people "revealing" you're gay, when you're not. What, like if someone repeats it often enough, he's supposed to say, "Oh well, everyone's so sure– I guess I'll just to start doing guys now". Grow up people. If he's not gay, it doesn't matter how many times you repeat it, he's not gay. And if he IS, and he's saying he's not, it's clearly none of your business as far as he's concerned. So either way, S*TFU.

    I think this is a ploy to take advantage of all the attention on gay marriage & Anthony Weiner! Zach is known to be a jokester like that! He's supposed to be a ladies man, which I don't see, but I don't see him as gay either! Maybe bi.....

    Told you guys he was gay, no one believed me though. This hacker was just trying to help Zach out of the closet and over the rainbow.
