Charlie Hunnam is kickin' ass on Sons of Anarchy, but gay fans remember him from Queer as Folk. In Men's Health (December 2014), he recalls how he got the gig:

“When Hunnam's first talent agency in England tried to pigeonhole him as a model, he went rogue and found an acting gig on a kids' show called Byker Grove. Then he returned to the agency and said, 'You didn't get me this job, but as a good-faith gesture, I'm going to give you the commission  But you need to start sending me out on stuff.' The agency listened. His next role was on Queer as Folk, which opened the door to Hollywood.”

Rising To The Top: Michael Sam Covers GQ Comments (0)

Michael-Sam-GQ

Michael Sam may not be in the NFL anymore, but he still rates as one of GQ's Men of the Year, posing for Peggy Sirota for the cover.

He says he wants to be a distraction based on his performance in sports, but knocks those who focus on his sexual orientation as being somehow other, saying of them, “Gotta keep bringing up the locker-room situation because he’s gay.”

Sam goes on to tell Andrew Corsello that his coming out story might have been different had he felt he had more of a choice:

“If I had it my way, I never would have done it the way I did, never would have told it the way I did. But the recruiters knew, and reporters knew, and they talked to each other, and it got out. If I didn’t have the year I did, nobody would have cared. But I have no regrets. Some people can argue that I had the potential to go higher in the draft. But I think everything happens for a reason. It looks good to see me in the position I’m in now, because I can show the world how good I am and rise up the ranks. I’m at the bottom now. I can rise up, show I’m a football player. Not anything else. Just a football player.”

He also talks about his troubled childhood:

“Only a handful of people really know how I was raised. Certain family members weren’t…there. They were ghosts. My brothers were the ones who were there. Most of the time, that was scary. I tried to stay away as much as possible. We called the cops on my brothers so many times I can’t even count. Not only for hurting me. They’d abuse my sisters. Verbally abuse my mom. My brothers were evil people. I don’t have a relationship with them now. They’ve both written me letters from prison. For them to dare to call themselves my brothers—I can’t live with that.”

This issue of GQ hits newsstands November 25.

 
Cold Gossip & Broken News: All The Dish From 1977! Comments (0)

Gossip-World-1

My buddy Sandra dug up a 1977 issue of a teen mag called Gossip World and gleefully sent me scans that demand some dissection.

The cover is hoot, targeting Hollywoods (sic) vamps, scamps & tramps, but tramps was too raw so gets the blank-space treatment. Wonder which of the pictured celebs—Cheryl Ladd, Barry Manilow, Jaclyn Smith, Shaun Cassidy, Kate Jackson and/or Peter Frampton—were which one of the pejoratives?

KLAATU

The mention of KLAATU threw me for a loop, but they're apparently a prog-rock band from Canada. Can't imagine they were moving many Gossip World copies, but as a former teen-mag editor myself, I'm assuming maybe they were favorites of the editor...the hilariously named Rona January! I'm gonna guess that's a pseudonym created to confuse readers who might be thinking of Rona Barrett?

The best has to be the pages of blind items:

Gossip-World-2

“A real shocker concerns the TV star who promised to marry his long time love and then changed his mind. Afterward she went through the abortion.”

Going through an abortion...is that anything like when you drive through a car wash?

Gossip-World-3

“If the truth were known about this famous singing star, it would outsell her recordings. She has a large problem...she digs women. She married twice to help remedy the situation, but both men she married dig men.”

Apparently, there was a sordid truths Top 40 that I wasn't aware of. I guess lesbianism would have gone platinum. You dig?

Gossip-World-4

“Almost as hard to believe is the aging movie queen who loves her men to be boys—YOUNG BOYS. She's at the warm milk stage before bed, and her dates have to show their IDS in other to enter a bar.”

Every item is so poorly written it's actually funnier than the made up stories!
