Hugh Jackman's Sexuality! Discuss

Hugh Jackman was great as gay performer Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz, but on the Tony Awards the other night, he was still swishing around.

As himself!

Hugh and host Neil Patrick Harris performed a very funny Tony-host showdown, which resulted in them camping it up to tunes from West Side Story and Funny Girl and flouncing to Chorus Line and even singing "You're the top"!

(As opposed to "You're a bottom.")

Hugh has done this before, as wifey sits there probably looking a little confused.

So what's the reality?

Either Hugh is the most comfortable straight guy in the world, one who's totally in touch with his femmy side and not afraid to trot it out for a laugh.

Or there's the other possibility.

I'll go with the other possibility.

I think Hugh Jackman is bi, but prefers men and eventually will divorce his wife.  You see, straight men do not enjoy "camping" it up.  In fact, the reason straight men are so dull is this stupid fear of being labeled "homo".  Any "straight" man who does not fear this labeling is not straight at all.  He is either a fustrated closet case or worn out from his life of lies.  When a "tough" guy stops acting "butch" for any reason. this is a signal to other men (attractive men) he is available.  Hugh Jackman just wants all the "cute" guys to know he is available.  Maybe his wife is willing to let him play both teams ala Jada Pinklett Smith.  So what!  Let this successful man enjoy his life.  He has earned his money.  If he wants to spend it on cute boys, instead of insatiable females so what. He has a right to be happy, straight or gay!

There is no way Hugh Jackman is gay! Have you guys seen the X-Men movies? How well he plays Wolverine? There's no way anybody can be that bad-ass and be queer at the same time!

This article is an INSULT to people of all genders..I agree with Kaze on this one, must be shocking to Joel Grey, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Mandy Patinkin that they MUST be gay simply because they possess talent and sing and dance on broadway!! Hugh Jackman is a wonderful singer and dancer and actor. And THAT is what should count, not what his sexual preferences are, it should be of no concern to anyone. .

He's a throwback, that Hugh. A heterosexual song and dance man.I think the last one was Gene Kelly.

Hah!  Not surprisingly, this post has drawn the world's clueless women like flies.  Dream on gals, you know less than nothing about the real lives of the men you fantasize about, and probably just as well...

Uh, Michael, remember how your teachers always said to go with your first answer on exams? You go it right the first time. He is "the most comfortable straight guy in the world." End of debate. Not that any of this stuff really matters.

Another question - why is it that men who sing and dance in the "theatre" are thought of as gay, and men who sing and dance on stage in rock bands, or country western, or jazz,  are seen as straight? All are singing and dancing forms of music . It is sad that we have to think of Hugh Jackman as gay because he likes to sing and dance on Broadway singing show tunes. There are straight ballet dancers and gay football players. Stereotypes serve no good to anyone. Hugh is a great actor, singer, dancer, and again, if he says he is straight I believe him. Who cares. He won't be sleeping with any of us tonight anyway! .

There's only one thing worse than a bully and is a bully gay. You are convinced that the whole world must be like you. You claimed serious rights but you do it with pathetic antics such as Gay Pride. You would respect, but are the first to show disrespect. You cling to homophobia word to justify anything, even when you're wrong, aware of it. You ignored the existence of the right of choice, which is a human right, that right, prerogative of every human being to reveal their sexuality or not. Forced to come out is a violation of human rights. If you don't understand this obvious you'll never be able to gain respect.

HeISN'T live with it. Be multiple talents like Hugh Jackman now means to be gay?!‘modern’ society is drowning in sick stupid clichés. So, according to yourthinking, if Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly & Howard Keel had had the misfortuneto live in present age 'cause of this stupid prejudices would end up to workingin gay bars dying poors and underestimated. Good old days when you were talkingabout show business, theatre and cinema and the matter did not amount to howactors use their dicks.

I love and fantasize about this man, but if he turned out to be gay I would be devastated and quite frankly disgusted.  I think that the act of a man having sex with another man is disgusting (and that doesn't make me prejudice).  A man desiring another man is just gross and unnatural.  I don't have anything against gays as people and would never treat them poorly, but I'm sorry....I just feel that 2 men sucking and fucking each other is disgusting and I wouldn't be able to think of Hugh sexually anymore because I would know he wants men.  I would feel betrayed in a sense because he's basically been lying to the public about who he really is.  Don't market yourself as this macho (Wolverine) type and pretend to be in love with your "wife" so deeply, when you're really corn holing men!  I think we do have a right to know because he puts himself out there and makes a living off of his fans.  Without US he wouldn't be Hugh Jackman the celebrity. I don't think he is gay though.  I just think he is a wonderfully talented man who is in touch with his femmy side.  He is one in a million!

Hugh jackman is hetro, he has a wife and 2 kids. if you se them togheter it is cleare that he loves her. the fact the he is brave enoungh to act like thet, knowing what people like you are going to say, just makes him more of a man. i bet non of you guys whoud have the bols to that.

Do you people have nothing better to talk about seriously? How many times does this man have to say he is straight? So what he played a gay guy in musical, so he dances around on stage with another man. SO WHAT! Can't a guy be an amazing performer and win awards for a musical without having people start rumors. Get a life.... If you people aren't complaining what his sexual preference is your nagging about the age difference between him and Deborah. Let's face the facts NOTHING bad has ever been wrote about this guy so you have to try to start something am I correct?

Yeah I agree with that statement about Hugh being the most comfortable straight guy in the world. Are straight guys not allowed to  sing and dance on Broadway and love it? I think it's very stereotypical if someone says he's gay just because of that. You do your think Hugh!The main reason I think Hugh's straight is because he seems to really love he's wife a lot since in all his interviews, he is always raving about her. When he talks about her you can see a cute little smile on his face and his eyes light up. Why would he fake that? I think if he was gay, he would admit it and not hide since he has a very strong personality and is not afraid to talk about anything. More straight guys should be like Hugh and not be afraid to break these stereotypes!!

Mr. Musto isn't it obvious? That wasn't even an ambiguous message. It was very clear. I am a woman and even I know what is going on. It seems the media is more or less quiet on that issue for now, which is good for him. 

Too bad there are a few fans out there taking every opportunity to defend his sexuality and accuse gay people. They are just like those "moral police" in Jerusalem and they are killing him.

Hugh is a great actor, that is why he can do it!  In many cultures around the world, "straight" men sing and dance all the time - Native Americans, Italy, Turkey, Greece, Spain, Africa, etc etc.It is in our very limited, prejudiced American culture that singing and dancing are seen as gay. Many great celebrities in the past were straight and loved to dance. Hugh is a great actor and all round entertainer. He says he is straight, his wife says he is straight. Why not believe him? In the end why does it matter.

Gordon

Oh God why... why are so many people interested in celebrities and their sexuality?   If Hugh is gay that doesn't mean you have a shot with him in the sack.  Gay/Straight, they're still untouchable.   I predict that in one more generation, you won't be able to tell who's gay or straight, men in general will become a lot more bisexual, and women will become a lot more ball busting.

I'm shocked you don't understand that the article was done in jest.  Hugh is still gay but the article surrounding it is a joke.

I'm jealous of Robert DiNiro, but that doesn't mean I think he's a closet case. (My apologies if he is.)

Envy??? It's not a matter of envy to say someone's gay. I think it's great when someone's gay. This is not trying to take hi down. Just trying to say the truth.

Because you're an idiot, that's why. There's lots of "rumored" closet cases in rock, jazz and especially country. I didn't realize rubes read "The Village Voice."

Easy answer: Because more than half the men who sing and dance in the theater ARE gay.

No, not the whole world. Just certain screaming queens who pretend to be straight.

You're an idiot. Show biz has always been filled with screaming queens who pretend to be straight. Hugh has the wife and adopted kids but can't stop flouncing around and being himself.

You're an idiot. You don't have an issue with gays, but you do have an issue with them having a right to expressing that part of their humanity that each of us has: our sexuality.Go fuck yourself in the most inhuman way possible.

So anyone with a wife and two kids is automatically straight??? You're sick.

And what about Neil Patrick Harris, he was singing write next to him, he was the dam host. but no one seems to care whether he is gay or not

as the guy said above this is a gossip column.  none of this really matters its just gossip.  i don't think hugh is losing any sleep on this until he can't open one of his movies.  and i hardly think this item about him is "bad." why do you think it is?

Hugh loves Debbie, but you are crazy if you think he's sleeping with her or she with him.  It's just not happening.  I don't believe he would admit he was gay because he would have already done it.  And he has no plans to as long as the media keeps their distance and his arrangement with Debbie holds up.

1. The reason people are interesting in the sexualities of their celebrities is because that is what the celebrity and the industry work for sell.  That's how they make their money, but selling sex.  Hollywood has been in that business for nearly a century.

2. These celebrities are not untouchable...most will sleep with a snake if you let them.  If you go see one of their shows, games, premieres, or even meet them at certain parties, you will find that some are VERY accessible.

Nice one! No one cares about whether Neil Patrick Harris is gay. (Everyone in the Western world knows but you.) Now we care exactly how big his dick is. Not that there's anything wrong with that....

Neil is openly gay, moron. That's already a given.

That's because we know Neil Patrick is gay.  He has come out.

it's because everyone has an issue with Hugh I swear.....This topic will sadly never end which is total Bull #?*!  Why does everyone thinks he is a liar when he has opened up about things that even his wife got a little upset about so why would he lie about something so stupid? He has said that in Australia it's not that big of a deal like it is in America and he's right cause nobody will let it be....If the guy says he is straight then he is...just let the poor guy have a life. How bout all you people on here we start saying your gay....how would you like it? I agree with Msn3 half you people wouldn't have the balls to go up on stage and act flamboyant. Didn't seem like anyone in the crowd was offended  did they?

Dljrs1fn

I just think it is wrong to judge people regardless if its a gossip column or not....No Hugh isn't loosing sleep over it but why do people have to write crap like this. If he says he is straight let it go....that's all I am saying.... 

Dljrs1fn

You have got to be kidding me? You seriously think that it's an arranged marriage? Why? Honestly.......Because she's older than him? Just because you can't see through his eyes or Debs eyes gives you no reason to say stuff like that. Maybe some people love each other for what matters...whats in the heart, sadly it seems others can't see how strong there married life is.

People can avoid a lot of bad impression, if they think twice before writing about private matters of other people. Respect is due to anyone, famous people or ordinary people. This is not for any of us, just the person directly concerned can speak for himself, and only if he want. Everything else is despicable bullying through internet.

well so be it... he is proud of who he is and he has never lied about it...so why does everyone think he is gay? He has been asked that question so many times, and he doesn't beat around the bush about it. I don't see a man being gay due to an act on stage sorry

You don't represent all the ladies. I am female and I don't think he is straight. He should be proud of who he is.

AHHHHH now I see whats going on here. My deepest apologies this is an all men site. I get the just of it. We ladies defend Hugh and the men trash his sexuality. Yeah okay my comments on this are SO done..Do as you will with my remarks but you guys will truly believe with all your heart Hugh is gay but in the end he will be banging his wife Deb till the day he dies ;-) I do wish you all the best in fantasy world but us ladies get the goods on this one......

Sad...Now they are both GAY! Wow this page just gets more bull shit by the minute.....Maybe you want them to be gay in your world of Fantasy cause well maybe you are. I really don't care. I m not against gays, I have gay and lesbian friends and I believe they should be able to live the lives how straight people do.However I REALLY want to know what your smoking cause that is some seriously good shit if you believe they are BOTH gay. Not once have I ever seen either one of them give the same sex a look like they were interested.......Oh and as far as they both wanted kids, Deb was unable to carry children and for you to even touch that subject your unreal......This is a sick and twisted subject all of it and as a previous person "A TV does it" says you might want to read there last sentence ;-)

Mark

I believe it's an arrangement made between the both of them, yes.  It wasn't done by a studio, they both are gay, they both wanted children, and BOTH wanted Hugh to have this Hollywood life.  The fought tooth and nail and they got it. 

They love each other very much and from what I've heard and Debbie is Hugh's biggest cheerleader and friend and for THAT reason, the marriage will last, but Hugh handles his more prurient interests with others of the same sex and most certainly not Debbie.

So then why isn't Hugh Jackman's marriage to a woman, _assuredly_ indicating his sexual orientation, not a "private matter"? Because you're a cretin, that's why.
