Gay Rumours Don’t Stress Hugh
HUGH JACKMAN doesn’t mind that some people think he’s secretly gay. There have been whispers in Hollywood for years that the Australian actor, married to Deborra-lee Furness since 1996, is hiding his sexuality, and Hugh has now explained that he has no problem with the rumours. “Some dudes do get upset, some dudes say, ‘Don’t say I’m gay,’ (but) I am good,” he told a US radio station, reports British newspaper Metro. Speculating where the gossip started, the Wolverine star, who began his career in musical theatre, thinks it might be from a Broadway show he performed in entitled The Boy From Oz, where he played a gay singer-songwriter – a part that won him a Tony Award. In it, he once shared a lingering kiss with a male co-star. “I was literally just locking lips… I started to laugh so hard,” he recalled. “So, I stay kissing him, because I thought, ‘I’m just going to laugh. I’m going to stay here until it subsides.’ And it never subsided and the whole audience could see my body shaking, so they started.” #HeDon’tCare
He Knocked Us Out
CREED 2 has finally hit cinemas, and while hunky Michael B Jordan may be leading the cast, we have our eye on Florian Munteanu, who plays the role of Ivan Drago’s son, Viktor. Originally born and raised in Germany, 28-year-old Florian gave us all the feels – and we don’t need to say #Ripped! why! Kit Denies Cheating Accusations KIT HARINGTON’S publicist has blasted rumours suggesting the Game Of Thrones
hunk has cheated on his new bride Rose Leslie.
The 31-year-old has been linked to Russian model Olga Vlasova
after she posted an alleged nude photo of the actor online. Olga claims she met Kit
in Luxembourg and in the photo, a man who appears to be the actor can be seen sleeping on a bed. The model also alleges she first hooked up with Harington when he was engaged to Leslie, but the actor’s representative insists the story is all made up. “The allegations in this story are completely false,” the rep says in a statement. “He has never even been to Luxembourg, nor has he ever met Olga Vlasova.” Kit and Rose, his Game Of Thrones love interest, exchanged vows at the Kirkton of Rayne church in Aberdeenshire, Scotland back in June 18, in front of guests including the couple’s TV castmates Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, and Sophie Turner. #DidHe?
