Tom Hardy isn't the only star who thinks an actor's sexuality is none of your business!

In a recent interview, Matt Damon revealed he thinks that "people shouldn't know anything" about an actor's sexuality!

The Martian star was the subject of gay rumors himself back in 1997, when he and Ben Affleck emerged on the scene with their Oscar winning film Good Will Hunting.

Now, the 44-year-old admits he hated being asked.

Quote of the Day

“So many of these stars today are just boring, boring, boring. Listening to Beyoncé Knowles talking about her life, her career, is like listening to an Army general talking about a military operation. Beyond dull.”

Alan Cumming Vs. Richard Chamberlain

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayRupert EverettLGBT

alan cumming vs richard chamberlain

Following in the footsteps of Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick, gay actor Alan Cumming has put actor Richard Chamberlain in his place.

While he may be gay himself, Chamberlain advises gay actors to stay in the closet due to the "tremendous amount of homophobia in our culture."

Alan does NOT agree. Here's what he said in response:

"I think it's so mean-spirited. If you're living a lie, that's not healthy, and I think it is really irresponsible of [Chamberlain]…to say these things."

Alan ALSO slams Rupert Everett, who shares Chamberlain's views about gay actors playing heterosexuals.

More from Alan:

"It's not about your work… It's about how you exist as a person in the world, and the idea that your work is more important than you as a person is a horrible, horrible message. I always think about a little gay boy in Wisconsin or a little lesbian in Arkansas seeing someone like me, and if I cannot be open in my life, how on earth can they? Anyway, it's an academic question: how can you know [that coming out affects your career]? Some people get less work than others, and it has nothing to do with sexuality."

Right on, Alan! We LOVE what you're saying here and we wholeheartedly agree!

Oh come on, Rupert!

During an interview on BBC Radio 4's Today Show, Rupert Everett did NOT hold back when talking about Jennifer Aniston's movie choices.

Here's what he had to say about her:

…Okay, something will go wrong. Like Jennifer Aniston will just have one too many total flops. But she's still a member of that club. And she will still manage to — like a star forming in the universe — a whole lot of things swirling around and suddenly solidifying into yet another vital tasteless romcom: a little glitter next to the Crab Nebula.


Is this really called for?!
