Lainey - beloved gay actor

Today Lainey wrote an article about John Travolta and Kelly Preston here.  In the middle of discussing their ridiculous fake relationship, she snuck in a mini-blind (I placed the blind part in italics below):

This is for your parents
It’s your parents who don’t know. And their parents. That’s who this is for.
Thank you for explaining it to me the last few weeks. Many of you have emailed to confirm that, indeed, there are people out there, A LOT of people, who still think John Travolta is straight. That it would be impossible for him to be un-straight considering he has a beautiful wife and children. So when John and Kelly Preston show up at the premiere of Savages, nuzzling each other for the cameras, suggesting that they do have man and woman sex, it’s for the benefit of your parents.
But is it unfair of us? They’re not the only ones. 
Why am I so kind to the beloved gay actor who adores his wife, who is his life partner, while loving his serious boyfriend? In public they front like theirs is a legit hetero situation too. In that case they are honest in private. She knows, they all know, their friends know, an entire community knows, and no one is trying to suppress or change it; they just stop short of the press release.
That’s what’s uncomfortable about Travolta’s predicament. The more they try to push it out of him, the  less control he has of who he is. Which is why his boner keeps getting in the way of his massage therapy. It’s been over 25 years of boners and massage therapy. He won’t be able to discredit them all.
 

I am thinking Hugh Jackman.  You?

I also automatically thought Hugh Jackman.

Simply because of the steady boyfriend: On this, both Lainey and Ted agree. Hugh has been in a monogamous relationship outside of his marriage to Deborah Lee.

And everyone seems to know about it, but I'm betting because of his ALWAYS amazing kindness to paps and fans alike, they keep everything hush.

BlahBlahBlah said...

Hugh Jackman first name sprung to mind. Lainey has been really nice about him in the past as well

Michelle said...

yup totally Hugh. She has praised him many times

Unknown said...

Did anyone go the SMUT soiree? What did Lainey say?

Lila said...

Orlando Bloom?

Hugh Jackman IS the obvious guess, but his wife has gone out a few times insisting that he is not gay, which conflicts a bit with the last sentence of the blind part.

Wurst said...

I found this good article from the most recent Smut Soiree:

BlahBlahBlah said...

Thanks for sharing Wurst. At least we know now that JGL is dimples and not Chace Crawford

Michelle said...

Was just coming here to say that dimples was JFK and other Michael pitt

Michelle said...

Not JFK auto correct jgl

blurry vice said...

Wurst, Thanks on the smut soiree info. We had them all except joseph gordon levitt. Thanks. Also, not sure on bond girl?

Ella Bee said...

@Blurry, the link on the page goes to "Gemma Arterton", who was in Quantum of Solace. Not very familiar with her, but gee...she looks like a nice combination of Jennifer Garner and Rebecca Hall.

pikespeak said...

It's Jackman.

I thought he and boyfriend broke up...apparently not.

Good for them!

C said...

Is "Dimples" the same as Dimpled Drew? If so, this Oct '08 doesn't fit JGL:
Dimpled Drew is a most successful performer. He’s got it all, good wife at home, a family who adores him, looks, bucks, nice bod, cute face, what could possibly be missing?

Michelle said...

No, dimples is a blind from this year about dimples - an acclaimed actor who is secretly gay and another actor who is "gross" bad break up one threatened to go public and scared the other "straight"

Lila said...

What about Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan?

pikespeak said...

Channing fits to a point, but I wouldn't consider him "beloved" at least not yet.

Wife - Check
Serious Boyfriend - Check
Beloved - Hardly

This REEKS of Jackman and Debbie.

moi said...

Ok, clearly I haven't been paying attention enough to gossip, who's the serious Channing Tatum boyfriend?

pikespeak said...

It's this man...uh, "allegedly."

blurry vice said...

Interesting, I never knew there was an "alleged" channing tatum boyfriend!!! I will have to inestigate this reid carolin character.

Regardless - this one has gotta be hugh jackman cause EVERYBODY knows about his bf and wife and their setup!!!

HP said...

Could easily be Hugh and Deb but I think this is Tom & Katie

HP said...

Also "entire community" could be Scientology

dennisduffy said...

Lainey isn't kind to Tom, though. And "no one is trying to suppress or change it." So, again... no way.

It's obviously Hugh.

MISCH said...

Also Hugh is a fantastic dad, and seems to have a great relationship with Deborah....a true partnership.

Not a marriage made in the Scientology factory...

Leni said...

Sounds like Hugh to me.

Michelle said...

Lainey had another blind inside the joanna mason story today - i have no idea, maybe jessica alba - but does Lainey think she is demonic?

Denise said...

So Ted C. hadn't posted a blind in weeks and today without warning he posts a "good bye" letter. !!!

Rita said...

@Denise, if you'd like to join the conversation regarding Ted's departure, you can check the comment section on this site for the "Franchise Star's Late-Night Secret".

@Michelle, I don't think Lainey was talking about Jenna. Here it is:

casting process for a superhero movie. Several actresses were up for the part including one with a demonic reputation, and the other a small town un-American girl who’d quickly become a fan sweetheart. The sweetheart had the edge, and she was on her way to LA to close the deal. At the airport, her phone goes off. It’s her agents. They told her not to get on the plane. Demonic leaked a story to Variety that she’d confirmed the role when she hadn’t. It was a bold move to throw off the other candidates. And it worked. (But both movies sucked and really didn’t do anything for her in the long run.)

Basically:

Superhero movie - that did not do well.

First star - sweet. Was hopping on a plane for her meeting/almost confirmation of the role, when stopped by agents.

Second star - Bitchy. Intentionally leaked to the media false information that she has signed on for the role, thus making all the other actresses up for the role quit.

Was it Blake Lively for the Green Lantern?

I'm pretty sure I've seen something in regards to this situation on Lainey's blog. Do not however remember the actresses involved.

Will have to do research... Or someone with sharper memory could give the details?

Michelle said...

@Rita - at the end of the article she said that Jessica Biel and Blake have both tried to do the same thing but unsuccessfully, not sure she would have said that if Blake was the blind - plus it is 2 or more movies green lathern just one (But both movies sucked and really didn’t do anything for her in the long run.)
That's what had me thinking Alba since she was in the fantastic four movies and now Lainey comments about her just doing the mommy thing not acting. Not sure who was rumored for her part though.

Michelle said...

Just googled it and looks like Rachel McAdams and Keri Russel were up for the Alba part. Maybe the "unamerican girl" is McAdams sice everyone loved her then ass all-american sweetheart but she is actually Canadian???

Michelle said...

oops "as an all-american sweetheart" not "ass all-american"

Rita said...

Alba demonic..?

I don't know... Could be. Not convinced though.

Good call on the Superhero movies: there were then 2. And both did not do well for the Demonic's career.

... I keep going back the that Jen Garner/Ben Affleck debacle... What was it called again? Which led for her to star in the sequel, Electra or something.

Also, there is Rooney Mara. Remember how she got that gig that was meant for Blake Lively? But the Girl with the dragon tattoo does not fit here.

Will keep on searching on Lainey's site. I am positive I've seen this EXACT sentence before

"...leaked a story to Variety that she’d confirmed the role when she hadn’t. It was a bold move to throw off the other candidates. And it worked."

Hez said...

I think Ted got canned because of the Jeremy Renner/Freddie Friction slip-up, and any talk about him "deciding" to leave is just spin control (endorsed 100% by Universal) to deflect attention from his "accidental" outing of Renner. The final line of his goodbye confirms it for me... "always do what you're not supposed to do."

Hez said...

BTW, Lainey has referred to Jessica Alba as the "Alba Demon" for years. Google "Lainey Gossip" and "Demon" if you're still on the fence. ;-)

NyxDeluxe said...

hi!
been here before, under another name... :) wouldn't it be a nice idea, to write a goodbye letter to ted? from you sisters? an open letter on this site from all of us with a big thank you?
greetings

Rita said...

@Hez, I did not know!!!

Apologies then to Michelle, her guess might most likely be the right one!!

Jessica Alba it is :)

FrenchGirl said...

i thought Hugh Jackman and John Palermo had broken last year

MD1979 said...

In the July 13 intro, Lainey notted Hugh for the 'he's the cliche' blind and said that " have I not been clear enough about Hugh Jackman?" I think that's a strong indication that it's Hugh as the beloved gay actor.

Unknown said...

It's the other way around. Lainey is and always will be a deluded waste. jmho.

Jackman goes to great lengths to say his home life is one way when it's really another. Travolta talks about fatherhood yes but doesn't push the wife stories half as much. Does John even have a real boyfriend to deny the existence of like Hugh does?

John Travolta is also leaps ahead of Hugh Jackman in being forthright about his orientation in his real life. Leaps! At least as much as Bomer and Cooper were. Where as Hugh is cut far too much slack for faking it at every turn.

Doubt its Channing. He's not beloved. He's confirmed to be bisexual long time agoand doesn't deny it. His Wife is Bigger freak than he is. i just leave it at that.

I go with Hugh Jackman.

pikespeak said...

(pulls up a chair and a bucket of popcorn)

No no no, dragon.

Don't leave it there.

Please continue.

We don't know much about Tatum's wife.

By Freak, I dont mean it as a bad way. She's Freaky. Of course these are all rumors but Let just say she's VERY Supportive and Enjoys it if you get my drift. I can understand why those two love birds love each other.

pikespeak said...

I have never thought being a freak was bad. Ever. And she would have to be if she's married to Tatum. Dude has been around the block and marrying Ms. Meek like so many guys like him do wasn't in the cards for him. So I tip my hat to both of them.

I was just curious about her--you never hear much about her, which I'm sure might annoy her, but at least she's on The Tatum Train.
