Congrats to actress Ellen Page who came out this weekend in an empowering speech. Ellen was in Las Vegas speaking at Time to THRIVE, a conference promoting LGBT youth when she made the announcement. She said, , “I am here today because I am gay. And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.”
Page also added, “I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission.” She added, “I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain.”
While I applaud Ellen Page (and anyone for that matter) for coming out, I look forward to the day when this really isn’t news at all. No one announces they are straight! It’s 2014 and this really should be a non-issue!!!
Admitting it is half the battle, James!!! Mr. Franco talks about all of the gay roles he has played in Hollywood and the much talked about speculation of his own sexuality in this week’s Entertainment Weekly. To all of it, he says, “Maybe I’m just gay.” To quote Glenda The Good Witch from “The Wizard of Oz,” “Come out, come out, wherever you are…”
Franco is hosting the Oscar Awards next month. If he sings a show tune and does jazz hands, he’s definitely gay.
There are always rumors swirling in Hollywood about who is gay and who isn’t. It’s been no secret to anyone who works in entertainment that Kevin Spacey is gay. But when Daily Beast writer Kevin Sessums asked Spacey to talk about why he never talks about his sexuality, it led to a discussion on privacy in which Spacey said, “I don’t live a lie.”
I can’t argue with him. It’s not really anyone’s business. I like Kevin Spacey as an actor and could care less who he sleeps with…men or women. His job is to be an actor and not a spokesperson for gay people.
Now, what about Anderson Cooper?
