Tom Cruise Will Probably Cancel His ENQUIRER Subscription...Happy? Comments (0)

Tom-Cruise-National-Enquirer-gay

Via National Enquirer (July 28, 2014): The great thing about Tom Cruise is that he totally doesn't mind speculation that he's a closet case, so National Enquirer should get away with this week's cover scot-free.

Paul-Lynde-RogerBut more seriously, this is all based on a NOVEL! Not a work of non-fiction. Although the book is a roman a clef (a term the tabloid puts in quotes and defines for its readers, BTW), The Actress by Amy Sohn is a work of fiction by a woman who never met Cruise.

Great publicity for Ms. Sohn, and probably dumb luck at that.

NE's piece has a dated feel regarding gay matters, including saying these are “nightmare rumors” and “sex slurs” and detailing his anguish at being portrayed as someone “leading a closeted homosexual life.”

Sounding Groff: This Century's Gay Icon On Coming Out Comments (0)

Jonathan Groff

Scene decrees that Jonathan Groff—living his life in Looking, dying an early death in The Normal Heart—is “this century's gay icon.”

Groff talks about his decision to come out publicly after his success on Broadway in Spring Awakening:

“I wasn’t denying it or anything, I knew I would talk about it someday, but I didn’t know how or why or when. But then I fell in love for the first time after the show, and I thought ‘Well, I’d rather be out and be in love with this person than try to hide it for any job I had when I came out,’ so I just said fuck it.

“Being in love was more powerful than any job I’d had before. That was the impetus.”
