Rumour mongering

This blog never set out to be, and has never been an instrument in rumour mongering. But the question of Leonardo di Caprio's sexuality came up recently and very little research takes you to names such as:

  • Zac Efron
  • Leo di Caprio
  • Robert Pattinson
  • Lukas Haas
In the Wikipedia entries on these big names, not one CTRL F turns up one hit for the words girlfriend, wife, partner, couple, marry, marriage in any of their entries. Dating seems a bit undergrad for grown ups, but these guys do date. Leonardo is roundly criticised for his string of short so-called relationships with models for the publicity's sake. 

I think that Leo is so greatly admired for his professional work and environmental support, that his days of disappointing teen mobsters is no longer a issue. If he is gay, which seems to be widely accepted, I hope his minders let him come out so that he can lead an honest life. It's many years since Rock Hudson died. It's many months since Anderson Cooper came out. 

Tom Daley did the right thing at the right time. He can't lose. And many people gain. Come on Leo, we saw those wonderful kisses in Total Eclipse, the romantic sacrifice of the great love. The erastes-eronemos relationship. One day, you'll tell us that that was the only honest film you did.
