People in this thread are saying, "Who cares?" I do. What the hell is the problem saying that you are gay. The video is kinda weird though. If you're buff you're gay? BS. Kevin Spacey and Hugh Jackman are two of my favorite actors. I couldn't care less if they were gay IF they came out. Wouldn't affect how I view them. It's being untrue to ones self I find disgusting.
Freddie denied he was gay? EVERYONE knew he was gay AND the best frontman EVER!!!!

Look, I am not claiming to know everything about the gay community, but I am getting sick and damn tired of being told that I need to treat gays this way and not that way and think about them this way and not that way. I frankly do not care who is screwing who and what it makes you. I also do not like being told how to think about certain groups, whether it be gays, blacks, jews, mexicans, blondes, who the hell ever. You know why? Because I don't care what you are in that context. You want to cultivate a favorable opinion by others? Act accordingly, do not demand respect or special treatment just because you're "this" or "that". A kid got beat up in high school because he is gay? I got beat up in high school, and I'm not gay. You don't hear me bitching about it being a "hate crime" and hiring a lawyer. Some kids are bullies, deal with it.
The problem here is that gays are always going to be right because they are gay and the rest of us are not so what the hell would we know, ya know? How about you live your life however you want and stop making such a big deal out of it. The fact that this thread was started only reinforces my point. Who's gay, who isn't? Is it a choice or not? WHO CARES?

Why are they so scared to come out?

I'm not really sure what changes in a persons perception. I would assume it's not an obvious change but more subtle. Some men are outright homophobes so would boycott the actor's films altogether out of pure bigotry.
I guess I can make an analogy to seeing a really hot woman (maybe an actress eg; Kate Beckinsale) and I saw her burping and farting prior to getting to know her. My view of her would probably change somewhat. Just everytime I would see a movie with her I would have in the back of my mind "Eww, I heard her farting". It wouldn't be a major thing but it's still there
I know that's a horrible analogy

Obsessing about other peoples´ sexual orientation and the entertainment industry in general is not productive or beneficial in any shape or form.
Everybody should just mind their own business.
