Heath Ledger Knew How to Flirt With the Gays!
According to a very weird New York Times T magazine blog post by hotelier Jeff Klein, when an "old queen" event planner of the "gay persuasion" thought Heath had just checked him out in the lobby, Heath—having overheard the guy say that to Klein—made a point of playfully winking at him, mainly to help Klein clinch a certain deal. Klein—who's of the gay persuasion himself—bends over backwards to put down the old gay while praising the confidence and compassion of his dead, straight celebrity friend. Though, of course, he never talks about his hotels' celebrity clients because he wants the place to be a "safe haven" for them.
