Actors are Stupid (Part 1,437)

Hollywood 'resists gay US actors' - Uhhh, yeah. Sure.

Sir Ian McKellen has said openly gay US actors are prevented from having
successful Hollywood careers.
"It is very, very, very difficult for an American actor who wants a film career to be open about his sexuality," the gay British actor said.

Did I just read that right? Sir Ian McKellen, gay, said gays can't be gay in the gayest place in America. Sure, you betcha.

His career in mainstream films "really took off once I'd come out and said I was
gay", he said.

But he just said.... What about.... Did I miss something?

Let's take a quick look at the last few films Mr. McKellen has been oppressed into starring in:
X-Men, X2, and the little known Lord of the Rings trilogy. Each one of those films has made over a hundred million dollars, with each of the trilogy making over three hundred million. Keep in mind, these are only five of the movies he has been in, as there are many more.

Gee, oppression really sucks, eh? I wish I were discriminated against like that.

But he is British... that makes it ok. He is saying that we wouldn't allow Tom Cruise to be gay and still pay money to go to his movies...phew, good thing he is straight.

Tom Cruise gay?!?!?! That's the craziest thing I ever heard. What next, is Carmen Electra going to take her clothes off for Playboy? Yeeeaaah riiiiiiight. That'll be the day.

Kell said...

You are silly!! Tom Cruise is NOT gay. Neither is Nathan Lane.

Too funny...

But in a serious twist... I was listening to NPR the other day and they interviewed the guy who wrote this: Alone in the Trenches. Interesting story... A closeted NFL player. They walk amongst us... ;)

Mr. Twisted said...

They actually had that guy on Fox news. According to him, there are a whole bunch more gay guys in the NFL. I guess you can only spend so much time in a men's locker room before, well, you know...

..an ass beating ensues for too much staring at the goods in public. And how about the crowd at Gonzaga chanting "Brokeback Mountain" at the opposing team. I find it very very amusing. Almost as amusing as Tom Cruise (gay) and Katie Holmes breaking up on Valentine's day...'nuff said
