Did anyone see Tom Selleck get interviewed on CBS about his new TV movie and, in fact, his entire ouevre and lifestyle? Naturally, Tom's public outrage over that infamous gay story about him in 1990 came up, and he explains why he was so mad about it that he sued: "It has nothing to do with being gay. It has to do with...you made a choice in your life and you're married, and it would turn your life into a fraud."
Now I'm sure Tom just worded his reply awkwardly, but what it implies is that his choice was to be with a woman and gay rumors tend to make his choice look fraudulent. Note to all celebs announcing their straightness: Sexuality isn't a choice! Being honest about it is!
