We think that everyone needs to stop picking on poor George! Clooney has often fallen victim to false rumors about his sexuality because he claims that he will never get married again. Few people recall that Clooney was actually married at one point in time. In 1989, Clooney wed actress Talia Balsam and their short-lived marriage lasted for only 4 years. Even though marriage may not be in the cards for Clooney, that doesn’t mean he is gay. The Silver Fox and ageless wonder recently addressed gay rumors.
A recent headline read, “George Clooney’s Gay-Gay-Gay”. When asked about how he felt about all the rumors, he told Esquire U.K., ‘I’m gay-gay. The third one’s pushing it,’” he said. He continued, “Well now, [according to the Internet] I’m gay. You’re not going [to deny it] because that’s flat out insulting to the gay community.”
This wasn’t the first interview where Clooney was forced to shoot down these rumors. Recently, he told 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!’”. He continued,”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 be people who say I was gay. I don’t give a sh*t.”
At least Clooney seems to have thick enough skin to not let these things get to him. If someone sees George, can you let him know that we will always love him, no matter if he’s gay, bisexual or straight?
