10 amazing celebrity reactions to gay rumours

Rosie West February 24, 2016

PinkNews lists the A-Lisers from film stars to royal princes who gave amazing responses to questions about their sexuality.

1 Daniel Radcliffe


Back in 2014, the actor joked that interest in his sexuality shows that his career is still doing well. “If people are speculating about your sexuality, then you’re doing OK,” the LGBT advocate quipped.

2 Ryan Seacrest


Seacrest himself addressed the rumours surrounding his sexuality, noting, “I know a lot of gay males who I work with that are fantastic people and I love hanging out with them. But because I hang out and bring gay men into my life, does that mean that I’m gay?.”

3 Matt Damon


“I never denied those rumours because I was offended and didn’t want to offend my friends who were gay. As if being gay were some kind of f–king disease. It put me in a weird position in that sense.”

4 James Franco


Franco has openly discussed his sexuality, after extensive rumours. During an interview with himself, he said he likes to “think that I’m gay in my art and straight in my life. Although, I’m also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse, and then you could say I’m straight.”

5 Kristen Stewart


The former Twilight star appeared to open up about her sexuality earlier this year, referencing tabloid stories by saying: “Google me, I’m not hiding.”

6 George Clooney


Clooney said in 2012 that he will never deny rumours that he might be gay because it would be “unfair and unkind” to the gay community to give someone the opportunity to make it “seem like being gay is a bad thing”.

7 Zac Efron


“I know it’s very addictive to read that kind of stuff. It’s entertainment. Honestly, if the worst [Perez Hilton] can say about me is that I’m gay, then I think I’ll be fine. I can handle it.”

8 Prince Harry


The cheeky royal hinted that he might experiment with his sexuality depending on the success of his next relationship, after being given the number of another man whilst at a party.

9 Joseph Gordon-Levitt


In an interview with OUT magazine, Gordon-Levitt addressed gay rumours by saying “it would be really tacky” for him to clarify, saying he refuses to give the gossip any attention.

10 Nigella Lawson


“Most [women] simply have, somewhere, a fantasy about having sex, in a non-defining, non-exclusive way, with other women,” the TV chef stated when asked to define her sexuality.
