Going Gay

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayAnglophiliaJesse McCartney

001cover.jpg

Jesse McCartney reaches out to his core audience (after the tweens) by posing for the cover of U.K. homo magazine AXM.

And he looks yum yum!

We've got an exclusive preview of the interview, and, yes, he talks about Zacquisha.

Here's what Jesse has to say…

AXM: You’re certainly a sex symbol. And now you’ll have us boys chasing after you as well…
Jesse: Hey man! The more the merrier! You know a fan’s a fan. You know it doesn’t matter what your sexuality is.

[Let's talk about] fellow Disney star Miley Cyrus a.k.a Hannah Montanna. Can you comment on the naked photo controversy?
I will comment about that. I think that people are nuts. I didn’t find any of the photos offensive in Vanity Fair. I thought they were artistic if anything. It sucks man. Everything about Miley was so sensationalized. I really feel for her you know.

Are you a Justin Timberlake fan?
Huge! I love Justin. I admire his work, I love his songs. I think he’s a great musician and entertainer… he’s the only other white boy I know that’s doing r’n’b music.

You’ve starred with Zac Efron in the past. Are you two friends?
Yeah. I haven’t spoken with him in a while. The only thing I can say about Zac Efron is that he’s really one of those people that you can’t help but love. He’s just so laid-back, almost too laid-back. He’s just so nonchalant about everything…

He seems quite focused to us!
Oh he’s really focused, but he’s got this ‘Yeah man! – whatever’ kind of attitude, which is great, in such a chaotic world. He’s super-talented and really humble.

C’mon there must be some rivalry between you…
None whatsoever. He’s one of those guys, you wanna root for him you know? There’s not a bad bone in his body.

Your film career has so far been for a much younger audience. Would you like to do more serious acting roles?
Definitely. I think after this album, I’m gonna take a little time to pursue that more and more. I’ve always been drawn to more dramatic, darker film roles. Hopefully I’ll have more time for it.

Would you play a gay character?
Yeah. You know an actor is an actor and an actor in my opinion should be able to step up and play any role, whether it’s gay, straight, whatever. It’s all about becoming somebody else, that’s what I love about acting.

Is there another male actor you’d like to act with?
Definitely. I’d love to do something with Edward Norton or Phillip Seymour Hoffman. My ideal role is to play kind of like, a fucked-up druggy, like Leonardo DiCaprio in the Basketball Diaries.

Going back to the gay question – if you had to have a Brokeback Mountain style co-star, who would it be? Somebody your age?!
Mmmm… if I had to have a co-star my age (pauses for a while)… maybe Emile Hirsch? He’s a really good actor. And maybe Shia LaBeouf.

Nice! Is there any men you look up to in the fashion world?
I like Marc Jacobs, I think that all of his stuff seems to fit me all the time. I love his suits and everything that he puts out there.

What about David Beckham?
Yeah. Beckham’s a stud man.

    It's actually refreshing to see a guy not act all freaked out by gay questions….seriously, how many straight guys do you know that would answer the "Who would be your Brokeback Mountain costar"?? Hats off to him for being evolved!

    WOW yall are two faced c-suckers. You call a singer a homophobe for calling some one gay then you go and call this kid all kinds of gay because he is on the cover of a HOMO mag.

  20. Megha says – reply to this


    20

    This is a little odd for your average straight guy. Usually men aren't so open to those kind of questions. Is he gay?! I guess one day we'll find out.

    25

    perez isn't calling jesse gay - it's just the category. calm down ppl.

    he's just a mature, non-ignorant celeb. that doesn't make him a homo.

    42

    I think its about time little Jesse came outta the closet.

  43. notga says – reply to this


    43

    Jesse is GAY. Get a clue. Furthermore, you gays need to stop making ignorant, bigoted remarks about straight people. We straights have better things to do then harass gays, we're not concerned about you. We have lives.

  49. Cerag says – reply to this


    49

    Oh come on. "Beckham's a stud man."????
    JESSE IS GAY!!!

  50. Jesse says – reply to this


    50

    Look, the guy isnt gay. Just because you guys might be insecure with your own sexuality, doesnt mean anyone who answers gay questions is gay.

  51. Dan says – reply to this


    51

    that would be hot to see him play a gay character especially with shia labeouf

  52. faith says – reply to this


    52

    HE'S NOT GAY HE JUST WANTS TO DO WHAT OTHER MALE SINGERS AREN'T DOING REACHING OUT TO THEIR GAY FANS, CAUSE THEY THINK IT WILL MAKE THEM GAY OR EFFECT THEIR CAREER. GOOD JOB JESSE!

  53. FAITH says – reply to this

  55. eddy says – reply to this


    55

    Wow, there were no questions about females and he didn't seem to bothered by it-even though his career is built on the foundation (fiction?) that he is supposedly into girls. I wonder what Shia thougt when he heard that?

  56. sharp says – reply to this


    56

    HE SAID SHIA!!! OMG I LOVE SHIA !!! THEN ALSO JEESE AND EMILE OH JESUS ILL CUM SO HARD!!!!! I LOVE YOU SHIA!!!!! MARRY ME????? JESSE HAS GOTTAN SEXIER SO IS EMILE!! SHIA WILL BE MINE!!

    Re: jewel
    Fuk Robin Thicke, what bout Justin T.?

  59. Madam says – reply to this


    59

    I mean it's great that he's not scared to answer these questions. But straight men usually wouldn't answer who they would act gay with or who they think is a stud. I love Jessie, But this is a little disturbing.

  60. MizMe says – reply to this


    60

    This pic is soooo photoshopped.
    I saw him last weekend at the B96 Summer Bash in the Chi and he has HORRIBLE acne. like I was puking in my mouth…

  63. Maria says – reply to this


    63

    I love Jesse, and I love him even more after reading this interview! I think it's great he's not afraid of "going gay", and embrazing his gay fans! I completely agree about Emile Hircsh, he really is an amazing actor. I've been a fan of his for years!

  64. steph says – reply to this


    64

    i just found a new respect for jesse! woohoo!

  65. johan says – reply to this


    65

    DUH!!!
    its a known fact shia is living with his boyfriend, and Emile Hirsch is suspect as well.
    HE'S GAY>>>>>>

  66. Hope says – reply to this


    66

    I think he looks hot even though it's a gay magazine. No he is not gay.

  67. velma says – reply to this


    67

    I love Jesse! I applaud him, he always makes me like him more when I read his interviews!

  68. S says – reply to this


    68

    is anyone here surprised?

  69. Venni says – reply to this


    69

    Sounds a bit iffy to me. A straight guy wouldn't be able to answer a question like,

    "if you had to have a Brokeback Mountain style co-star, who would it be? "

    Mainly because they wouldn't see any guy in that way… I think he may slowly but, surely be coming out.

  70. q says – reply to this


    70

    i wonder why so many people are offended when someone just insinuates hes gay,like you all were his girlfriend or someone related to him.
    lets stop daydreaming!

  71. Miss says – reply to this


    71

    He almost looks like a young Brad Pitt here … almost



  72. 72

    Who cares if he turns gay he's still hot!!!

  73. fag says – reply to this


    73

    what…a fuckin…QUEER!!!!! What straight pop star (doubt that there is one) calls Beckam a stud, admits to want to work with Shia whatever( in a gay role), and calls zaquisha one of the guys?! Fukin gay!

  74. Chris says – reply to this


    74

    I think he's gay. I'm not saying that just because he's ok with gay people, there are plenty of straight guys who are ok with gay people and friends with them, Jesse just seems to be extra friendly with gays.
    But, there's a definite possibility I'm wrong.

  75. robyn says – reply to this


    75

    i am not a fan of jesse's music, but i have to say that he seems really down to earth and like he has a good head on his shoulders.

    and i do NOT think he's gay. the fact that he's so open to those types of questions shows that he has nothing to hide!

    "he’s the only other white boy I know that’s doing r’n’b music."

    Do ya research young man…haven't you ever heard of let's see…
    ROBIN THICKE?!?
    JON B?!?
    MICHAEL MCDONALD?!?

    Those 3 are much better R&B singers than JT. JT is more pop than R&B. Don't get me wrong…I got mad respect for JT cuz he's been doing his thing.

  78. emily says – reply to this


    78

    You people are so immature. stop fighting over if he's gay or not. Maybe he's bisexual. but it doesn't matter. He's had plenty of girlfriends. He's not gay. and maybe i'm wrong, but i'm pretty sure i'm not.



  79. 79

    I want to see him lick Shia's butt.

  80. Eric says – reply to this

    I love this magazine. God I want his bod.

  81. Lizzy says – reply to this


    81

    If he is straight, then good for him. Being open, completely at ease discussing homosexuality and gay men … that's so rare for a straight young man, seriously. It's a great example for other young men everywhere to be more tolerant.

  82. andre says – reply to this


    82

    hey come call me so we can do it

  83. aneur says – reply to this


    83

    totally gay rights over here but ffs these gay posts are inundating & are starting to feel force fed. we get it! youre gay & we should support them all, but truly people get to the point they dont give a shit, no more than we give a shit who kate whatsherface is dating, ya know? over-exposure! give it a rest! i bet you couldnt go one day w/o one gay post. it's ridiculous.

    88

    wow. that's REALLY gay.



  89. 89

    Wow, he's really opened and comfortable with his sexuality, either that or he's closeted, anyway i'd have liked to see his facial expressions when he was asked the gay questions, that'll really tell how comfortable he is or not.

  90. Natal says – reply to this


    90

    wow the reporter should ask him some non-gay questions,
    what is he like obsessed,
    and of course when jesse was asked if he would play somebody gay,
    obviously he will say yes, if he said no, there would be a whole
    controversy about it, and he would never here the end of it.

    the reporter should ask him about his CAREER.

    95

    this can`t be happening . u know acting is just acting . so he just acting . he couldn`t be doing it for real! he`s not gay!

  96. nacy says – reply to this


    96

    i don`t get it ? how is he gay? lets see um he dated katie cassidy. know dating aubrey o` day , which that woman is dating 5 other guys . now he`s gay! it confuses me ! to be honest . i know a 12 year old girl who likes him and his music ! if she finds out he`s gay what am i suppose to tell a teenage girl about her number one music singer? she`ll probaly rip up all the pictures she got of him. and throw away her downloaded music of jesse mccartney.

  97. tatia says – reply to this


    97

    okay dude leave him alone. he is just saying he doesnt mind gay ppl pretty much and that if he had to play gay thatsits his acting carreer and its fine to be gay

  98. Miss. says – reply to this


    98

    Uhh.
    I cannot believe it.
    Me and my sister grew up LOVING him.
    We watched Summerland and all that.
    It's truly depressing knowing that our long-time celebrity crush [;)] is gay.
    =(
    It's just sad.

    I think this is bullcrap.
    lol.
    I'm not saying that I hate gays, but it's just NOT for me.
    There's no way the gorgeous 'Jesse McCartney' can be gay/
    No way at all.
