I’m not even sure who asked, but Hugh Jackman wants everybody know he isn’t gay. Apparently when you’re really into musical theater and prance around on stage playing a gay dude, people might get the wrong idea. Us Magazine reports:
“I’d be happy to go and deny it, because I’m not,” he says in this Sunday’s Parade magazine. “But by denying it, I’m saying there is something shameful about it, and there isn’t anything shameful.” “The questions about sexuality I find more here in America than anywhere else, because it’s a big hang-up and defines what people think about themselves and others,” the actor, 40, adds. “It’s not a big issue in Australia.”
Hugh didn’t really help his case when he hosted the Oscars, but he’s Wolverine, man. Wolverine isn’t gay. If he was he’d wear a cop hat and roller skates. Or smoke his cigar through a gold cigarette holder. Or walk a barefoot teenage Mexican boy in Daisy Dukes around on a leash. I mean, that’s what gays do, right? Of course they do. That’s what momma told me from the Bible.
