Cary Grant's Daughter Denies That He Was Gay

cary grants daughter says he wasnt gay

Last June, Betty White seemed to have outed iconic actor Cary Grant while on The Joy Behar Show.

Now, Cary Grant's daughter Jennifer Grant is writing a memoir about her father entitled Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father, Cary Grant, and she's denying that he was gay.

Here's what she had to say about it:

"Can't blame men for wanting him, and wouldn't be surprised if Dad even mildly flirted back. When the question arises, it generally speaks more about the person asking."

"Dad somewhat enjoyed being called gay. He said it made women want to prove the assertion wrong."

Ha! What do you have to say to that, Betty White? We'd LOVE to hear your input!

Do U think Cary Grant's daughter is right? Or do U still think he was gay?

    Nah, he wasn't gay, but he wasn't a homophobe that's all. Sorry Perez not every straight guy is really gay.



  2. 2

    What would Betty White know?
    She didn't even exist when Cary Grant was a king!



  3. 3

    He was a great leading man. It is irrelevant whether he was or wasn't, and no-onw will ever know for sure. If he was gay, he certainly couldn't be open about it back then.



  4. 4

    These are real stars.
    What a great picture.
    -
    Love that "Mad Men" hair.



  5. 5

    I think the real question is: WHO CARES????



  6. 6

    Really? Our culture isn't currently obsessed enough with the "gay or not gay?" question that we're now asking the same of dead people too?



  7. 7

    Cary Grant was a talented , beautiful, man. Sigh… Cary in "Bring Up Baby!" Never a conceited poser like these days. He was bi. Cary Grant lived with Randolf Scott for 7 yrs . He also dated Roslind Russell's huband, Freddy, before marriage.Cary was discreet.



  8. 8

    Leave him alone! Seriously. He's a legend and he's dead. It's a shame that some people try to defile his reputation when he isn't able to defend himself anymore.

    You know, there are guys who are trully straight. I know gay guys like to think that they can "turn" a guy gay, not true at all. But the dude is long gone so it doesn't really matter if he was gay/bi or straight anymore, only HE can tell us differently.



  10. 10

    Maybe he was bi? There were rumors he was gay for years, but he had relationships with women, too, some of whom were thought to be 'beards' for him. So probably he was bi.



  11. 11

    that rumor has floated for years……………

    he's like hugh jackman - they come off flirty but is straight

    Clark Cable on the other hand…. is like tom cruise…hates gay bc he is one.



  14. 14

    i really think that it could go either way and it shouldn't matter because he was an amazing actor and nothing is going to change that. i wish that he was still alive.



  15. 15

    Re: ChinacatSunflower – Yes. I believe both Grant and Scott really loved each other. They had virtually no chance of staying with each other but I do believe they were in love with each other at one time long ago.



  16. 16

    How would his DAUGHTER know? She'd probably be the last person to know his sex secrets — anyway, you'd HOPE!



  17. 17

    Seriously if he was or was not I don't care - the man is deceased and I really don't want to go there.



  18. 18

    I love Cary Grant. Who cares if he was interested in men or not?



  19. 19

    Betty white can suck a fucking dick. She is a fame whore. The only reason she gets roles is because shes old. Spreading petty rumors when shes how old? oh well gay or not, why would it matter!



  20. 20

    Re: brat93111 – Before becoming famous he lived with John Orry-Kelly and Charlie Spangles (Both famous homosexuals) They ”introduced” him to Hollywood and his long relationship to Randolp Scott was the talk of that time.-He gave this image of Debonair man but after ”5” marriages and all those rumors (that was the 30's) nobody in that time was open o dare to say i have gay friends, your comment reminds me of the scene of Austin Powers when he discovered LIBERACE was gay!!LOL

    Re: blackfairy – why is speculating that he was gay "defiling his reputation?"

    Personally, I do think he was gay and that he and Randolph Scott were in love, but the pressures of society and their desire to have careers at the time prevented them from being open about their love. Whether gay or straight we was still dreamy and an amazing talent. "Bringing Up Baby" is one of my favorite films and I don't think there has been a greater comedy duo than he and Katherine Hepburn.

    I doubt if Betty White ever mingled in those rarified circles in Hollywood. She was always a B list TV celebrity (and I do love her). Cary was one of those men who appealed to both sexes, whether he ever went beyond flirtation really doesn't matter. He left a great legacy of entertainment for his fans to enjoy forever.



  23. 23

    She is a good daughter who is in denial.

    He had dignity, elegance, integrity and a twinkling wit.



  25. 25

    who cares!!!!!!

    why must people obsess about stupid things such as a celeb's sexuality??

    his personal choice on where he put his dick was and is his own business. period.

    find something better to do with your brain than to obsess about stupidity such as this.

    Re: curiousred – Didn't even exist? She's 90 years old. Are you retarded? She's been working since the 1950's.

    Gay.. no.. Bi, most likely



  28. 28

    Betty is on a roll these days…that girl sure knows how to speak her mind and usually speaks the truth, even if it does offend some people!



  29. 29

    Perez asks: "Do U think Cary Grant's daughter is right? Or do U still think he was gay?"

    ^^ Man you are stupid! Why do you ask the stupidest f'ng questions?! How the FUCK would we know? I'd think his Daughter would have a better idea than us you twat! Man Perez, you really are ignorant.

    Re: gnarly8
    B list celebrities? Wow, you're really un-informed, yet you speak like a know-it-all.

    Honestly, does it matter if he was or not?



  32. 32

    I think he was at least bi….but who really cares?

    Re: diamondheart

    You are so full of shit. Dumb motherfucker.

    Re: Shageen
    She was then a nobody who would know NOTHING about a real movie star.



  35. 35

    I have a female relative that was an actress back in the day and fucked him!



  36. 36

    Gay or not, I would have shagged him :-)



  37. 37

    The fashion critic, Mr. Blackwell, was on Howard Stern a few years back and said he slept with Cary Grant when Blackwell was a young man in Hollywood. He made it sound as though it had all been set up by someone else and that was the first night he had met him. And then there's the Randolph Scott thing. I think he was bi.



  38. 38

    No he was not gay. He was a well talented and attracted actor that everyone from both sexes loved.
