George Clooney On The Gay Rumors: “I Don’t Give A Shit!”


Asked about the gay talk, George Clooney told The Advocate:

“I think it’s funny, but the last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down saying, ‘These are lies!’

“That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community.

“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 people people who say I’m gay. I don’t give a shit.”


But a couple of questions:

*Might this be a deflective way to deal with the things — give an interview to a gay magazine and say all the correct things, while maintaining you’re straight?

*Could he be straight?

*And why did the Radar write-up use the word “plagued” (as in he’s been “plagued by gay rumors for years”)?

That makes it sound like a horror, and even Clooney said it’s great, remember?
