Brad Pitt has joked that he and Angelina Jolie will marry when their pal George Clooney can wed his partner - as part of their stance on not marrying until all Americans, regardless of sexuality, can tie the knot - and Clooney's said it's a comment he still hears.
Even aside from Pitt's well-intended quip, Clooney's been the subject of gay rumors for a while - not that he cares.
"I think it's funny, but the last thing you'll ever see me do is jump and down, saying, 'These are lies!'" the actor tells the Advocate. "That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community."
He continues, "I'm not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing. My private life is private, and I'm very happy in it. Who does it hurt if someone thinks I'm gay? I'll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don't give a s***."
He also probably doesn't "give a s***" about what you think of his ardent support for his "Ides of March" co-star Ryan Gosling to be named "Sexiest Man Alive" by People magazine.
"Not that I don't think Bradley Cooper is a perfectly sexy guy, but I'm still shocked that Ryan Gosling didn't get Sexiest Man Alive last year," Clooney says. "I thought he worked hard and ran a very solid campaign, so I feel that he was ripped off."
And for those of you who latched on to his remark about Michael Fassbender at the Golden Globes - when he joked about the size of a part of the actor's anatomy in the film, "Shame" - as an indication of his sexuality, Clooney says he was just being honest.
"Well, c'mon," he tells the Advocate. "Every guy who saw that movie was like, 'Jesus Christ,' at the exact same time."
He's gay. And that's ok. But don't play us for fools, when we all know better. Who does he think he's kidding? People say, "Who does it hurt?" It hurts George Clooney. He lives "lies" on the big screen, and he is forcing himself to live the truly hurtful lie in real life.
His modus operandi: "Date" a beautiful girl for a couple of years. Her star is falling and could use a boost. She's smoking hot and perpetuates his virile, playboy, movie-star image. Let her down gently. Move on.
Okay! Okay! I'm jealous.
All these women are fueling the gay rumors; true or not.
I'm not sure Clooney is Honosapiens... he doesn't look like it; walks with bent knees and has rather large ears – think his thumb doesn't oppose either so he can't be, right? Hmmm, we could ask him to get a banana out of a coconut shell and see if he can do it, but would that be the sure-fire test? It's all too confusing for me, you can't tell one thing from another anymore – I mean, look at Bonnie Prince Charlie as a Weatherman – Imean, who'd-a-thought? Now, talkin about ears, he's got a pair, so does that make him one of the Chimp variety My head hurts, it's all too confusing for me. Maybe I should just be a big Ot, and not think at all. Have you seen any Ot's lately, especially big ones?
Magnificent issues altogether, you just won a logo new reader. What would you suggest in regards to your submit that you made some days in the past? Any certain?
George Clooney gay? Who Cares!
what i would have never thought
luv his answer! he's an awesome guy. yah...who cares if he's straight, bi, gay, whatever!!! who cares!
One more reason to love Clooney. He is absolutely correct- what the hell does it matter?
Clooney just has that" I'm a stool pusher" look to him........
i'd hit that cornhole. he's a bottom cuz he's a liberal.
I don't get why is't such a hot subject if someone is gay or not. Whenever the subject of "is someone gay" comes up, some people's eyes just light up! It's amazing that so many people have this fascination.
If George wants to keep his personal life private, he should stop parading a blonde female wrestler in front of the cameras. Mr. Clooney's long string of lovelies blemishes his important work to achieve social and economic justice.
I see nothing wrong with Anderson not parading his being gay. It is well known. I'm a gay man and most folks who know me know that. I, like many others, don't feel like I have to parade the fact. I spent ten years in the military and most of my fellow Coasties knew it. Was not a big deal.
I hate when people try to get clever like this. If he wasn't gay, he'd probably say it. If he was gay/bi, he might waffle like he's doing here.
@ woodrow. You are a total i d i o t. Clooney's point is that a) it's nobody's business; b) acknowledging these kinds of things only gives undeserved attention to the rumormongers; and c) getting defensive suggests there's something wrong with being gay, which Clooney obviously does not believe.
"Brad Pitt has joked that he and Angelina Jolie will marry when their pal George Clooney can wed his partner – as part of their stance on not marrying until all Americans, regardless of [orientation], can tie the knot...." Oh, good, that makes tons of sense. Pretend you're making marriage mean something by determining to live in sin and have illegitimate children together. Yeah, that'll get your point across.
"I'm not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing." Gee, why would being attracted only to people you can't have normal relations with or make babies with be a bad thing in and of itself? I swear, these actors need to come back out of their fantasy worlds once in a while.
If they agree to leave their fantasy world, will you agree to go back into your cave?
Rock Hudson was gay in a time when being openly gay could kill a career. He would have been relegated to off-Broadway productions for the rest of his life if it was known that he was gay.
Henry Rollins has a great anecdote about how he heard rumors of being gay, got mad and then felt guilty for being angry about it and then stated that his agent loved it because it meant that he was properly famous.
As far as Clooney is concerned, many would love it if he were gay (not that they would have a chance with him) in the same way that many wished that Portia de Rossi was straight.
As far as Clooney is concerned, he has nothing to lose by being out of the closet if he was gay. He is already a Hollywood liberal who has fought for gay rights. He's alienated anyone who would be alienated already.
this woman appears totally not for him..none of them appear for him..he doesn't get it. sandra bullock is more his age and type.
Yup,,,,he's a pickle licker for sure!
The biggest hypocrite on this matter is Anderson Cooper. He is g a y, but will not come out officially – instead, he runs programs about others being gay ad nauseum. If it's so great, and nothing to be ashamed of, then why is he hiding?
Why would it be important for anyone gay, to acknoledge that? It hs no bearing whatsoever on who they are or how they do their work.
That's really bothering you, huh??
I hope one day Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney will turn the world upside down and come out, but maybe they Love their careers more.
Now if you pursue rumors of Wilfred Brimley, Al Roker and that guy that looks like a pineapple being gay, I will believe that you are stating this opinion for reasons that go beyond your fantasizing.
Help me out tim, who is the guy who looks like a pineapple???
George Clooney, is as gay as he can be. The beautiful women on his arm,are to keep people from really
believing the truth. He does't want his fans to know but we can play the waiting game. And see if he
will marry Stacey or change to another woman when the pressure is on him.
I don't believe he's gay for a minute! As far as the vacation in Cabo with his guy friends....I've known guys to go on hunting/fishing trips together for a week or two at a time and trust me, they are not gay. I think it really chaps some of these people that he doesn't take the bait and engage their accusations by so much as a single denial. I think he's a good, loyal FRIEND who means what he says about not dignifying the rumors with a response that would only reflect negatively on people he is friends with. All of the Neanderthals out there who are SO threatened could learn a lesson or two from George. He is who he says he is, does what he says he's going to do and doesn't give a rip about the gossip rags. Go George!
Why would tou, or anyone else care if he were gay? Does that somehow upset your apple-cart?
I've always thought he was gay especially when he played in "Roseanne". "Who cares?" To each his own.
Just like Rock Hudson he is protected by hollywood community because his success is link to the love of all his women fans.
Because this is 1955.
i never found him attractive and i do not find his sense of humor funny at all. sorry.
thanks Flaken. LOL
This is the first report I have seen about speculation of his being gay. I figured it out a couple of years ago. New "girlfriend" each year and the clincher was when I read a story about him and his men friends going to Cabo for Christmas together. Sorry, but no straight men in relationships go on vacation for the holidays together without their women or they'd have no women to come back to. That is a what gay men do. My very good gay male friend thinks I am correct.
You're an idiot with too much time on your hands if you think this guy is gay. For 2 decades his lie has consisted of movies, playing basketball and drinking beer with his friends and dating hot women while relaxing in Italy. Wouldn't you think that one of the women he has dated would get peeved and say something? This is just the reality of our pathetic media driven times.
Who is that guy your dad?
URGENT – Please read more about VERIZON. Things they don't want the public to know! I was tormented by racial comments that were ignored, then racially discriminated against and wrongfully terminated for making complaints about the racial injustice.
Please visit my Blog Page to see what Verizon did to my family. What they have done to my family, and continue to do is horrific. Today they still will not accept responsibility. So I will not stop this FIGHT for JUSTICE! It has been 8 years and I refuse to give up, but I need your help to spread my message.
You can read my stories about what VERIZON did to my family by GOOGLING:
• “Verizon Raped My Family – Cover Letter”
• “Verizon Raped My Family – Press Release”
• “Verizon Raped My Family – Requesting Criminal Punishment”
From there you can access the other letters through the recent post.
I am a man who has stood up against racism, discrimination, bullying, harassment, hostile environment, belittlement, threats, and retaliation, all while working for Verizon Communications, as they conspired to terminate me.
I am a man who is trying to hold his family together while in the process of trying to fight for my rights to be heard. I am a man who has brought up his family on morals, discipline, character, hard work, dedication and conviction to believe that good things happen to good people. I am a man who could not be more proud of my family for all their trust and faith in my conviction. I am man who is a proud servant in my community and deserves to be heard, as I am begging for JUSTICE!
Neal W. Dias
You deserve everything that happened to you. Verizon did nothing wrong, you are a complete @ss.
Well, of course he is. He is a liberal, isn't he?
Yes ...... ALL us liberals are gay...... You're an ignoramus !!!! But I like you anyway.... After All I'm a gay liberal and you turn me on!!! ;-)
It's my thinking that if someone has rumors about them being gay they probably are...the real issue is why does anyone care? (Other than conservative Republicans who want to control every aspect of your life??)
Clooney is a total fruitcake. If you're a guy and you can't see that, you're probably just as fruity. If Clooney was ever locked up, he'd be someone's punk in 0.2 seconds.
Dude gets more hole than a golf ball. I can't imagine he is a bone smuggler.
Very Friendly- helpful- funny 43 year old male lives in NYS that's pleyad WoW from day one. I am very Old School in essence of Guild team orientated aspects: gearing- keying and working to End-game (which encludes all 5-man Dungeons). I have end-game experience. Been there and done it: BWL and raided many endless hours gearing people up in MC and Onyxias Liar for BWL runs. I have ran countless times BRD, Upper and Lower BRD as well as the other 5 man dungeons. I am looking for a Gay-friendly-helpful-most importantly able to distinguish WoW being a game to have fun with a guild and socializing and in mind that the guild will work together as a team and never forget that WoW is not a REAL LIFE GAME! I started as Ally on Hellscream and left the server when BC was released, leaving behind me: 4 level 60 s Mage-Hunter-Lock-Fighter. I started a new life on Shandris and spent endless hours with the results of 2 level 70 s- Pally Holy and Lock Affliction. Pally is missing 1 frag Opening the Dark Portal in Black Morass. My lock is Kara ready. Both toons are frowned down upon due to gear on Shandris. The theme is if its not Epic Honey hit the road Jack! I am more than willing to relocate my toons on Horde to a better location with a better social orientated skilled Guild as in treating people as people not their gear. I quit WoW for 6 months and want to come back after the disappointing AoC. I am really getting excited in hopes to play with a guild and have many laughs and grow with them into the next expansion. If you think I can benefit from your guild as well as your guild can benefit from me I will be willing to relocate (PvE- in hopes that your server is relocatable) send me a Email at .
Id f him.
Soooo he is really gay as a brick like i am and not owning up to it.
Did you remember Rock Hudson? gay and he didn't want the world know it? until we found out when he die of AIDS .Of course he will care to let the world he is gay ,he will not have beautiful women in his side the way does! if rumors start usually is true! I believe he is!

I am not saying nothing...but remember Rock Hudson? handsome,viril,married one time.around many beautiful women,having relations with them....and GUEST WHAT! he was GAY!!!!! is what I said,just saying......maybe he is? it will be not surprise me!
I wasn't sure until he was smooching with Billy Crystal at the Oscars. That must mean Billy is gay now too. Oops! Cat is out of the bag now.
I saw him smooching the Cat too, does that make the Cat gay? Hmmm, come to think of it, if gay humans come out of the closet, do gay cats come out of the bag?
Is that why Elizabeth C dump his ass?
Hey....idiot.....these vid posts aren't funny. Neither are you.
;-) I enjoyed your clip.
Please let him be gay! He is my and Richard Fore's role model! I want to marry Richard so bad. I'm right there beside you Brad, Angelina and George!
