People have been wondering if Jared Leto is gay for years. He never comes out and says he is, but the rumors persist.
Some people say that they know a guy who knows a guy who saw him kissing another man in a club.
Others claim to have seen pictures of Jared with his hand down some other guy’s pants at an award show after-party.
All the signs point to a yes! However, we can’t be sure. Let’s find out more about the actor and his sexuality.
Is Jared Leto Gay?
In the end, we think it is safe to assume that Jared Leto is probably bisexual. He has been linked to many women over his career and is also “romantically involved” with another man.
However, these days he prefers men for sex only, according to an old roommate of his who talked in a Reddit AMA session last year. So there you have it! It’s up to you if you believe him or not. The evidence speaks for itself either way, though.
With rumors spreading about Jared Leto’s sexuality each day, it would seem as if there are only two possible answers: yes or no. Perhaps we will never know for certain until he sits down with Oprah Winfrey on her show one day and tells us all what really goes on behind closed doors.
Until that day comes, people will just have to speculate about the actor’s sexuality.
The Rumors that Leto is Gay
Leto won an Oscar for his role in Dallas Buyers Club. He grew up in a house full of women, and this probably had something to do with his feminine nature. From the age of four or five, he was playing dress-up like Barbies.
Also, he dressed as Cher from her “Believe” video (he said that’s still one of his favorite music videos).
Then, those pictures were taken at an after-party for an awards show where Leto is seen putting his hand near another man’s crotch while wearing masks. It certainly looks like it could be him!
Additionally, his support for gays in Hollywood is well-known. On the other hand, he also dated Cameron Diaz (who is bisexual) and Paris Hilton (also rumored to be bisexual).
Some say that Leto’s true sexuality lies somewhere between straight and bi/gay. It can’t be easy being a celebrity who is both admired by women but suspected by men!
UPDATE: “A picture is worth a thousand words”
Jared On the Rumors
When asked about all these rumors years ago, Jared denied them, saying: ‘No,’ he laughed before adding, ‘I’m not gay.’
However, when asked again in a different interview, he said: ‘I’m not gay, but that rumor can’t be killed.’
Jared Leto on Leading Gay Roles in Hollywood
In an interview with GQ Style, the Suicide Squad star observed that Hollywood wasn’t ready for a gay lead. According to Leto, straight leads had more opportunities than gay ones in Hollywood. This also fuelled the rumors that he was gay further.
Leto hoped for better times where gay leads would receive more chances. Speaking to Green, he said
I don’t know if that’s offensive or not, but that’s my thought right now. It shouldn’t be that way.
I don’t think you’ll have as many opportunities. And I think you could say the same for minorities. What a word, minority. Have we taken that word off the list yet? ‘Cause it should be. Anyway, no, I think that this is still a very conservative business.
