A couple of years ago, Jeremy Irons made controversial comments about same-sex marriage in an interview with Huffington Post. The 66-year-old actor sparked outrage, suggesting that legalizing gay marriage might lead to incest between fathers and sons. He implied that benefits of a change in the law might lead to fathers marrying sons in order to pass on property to avoid inheritance tax. Not surprisingly, Irons backtracked on his comments the days following.
“I think gay marriage is wonderful. I think any reason that holds anybody together in a relationship is great,” Jeremy said. “If it works as glue, if it makes you feel better, if it makes you feel you love your partner more, then great.”
His 29-year-old son, Max Irons opens up about his father’s comments in the latest issue of OUT magazine. Here’s what the younger Irons said.
“I remember thinking, You don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re thinking through a problem out loud. I know my father, and his views are similar to mine: As long as you don’t harm anyone else, what you do and who you love are nobody’s business. He has since clarified as far as I understand, and truth be told, if you pushed him to explain what he was talking about, I don’t think he’d actually know.”
Max also talks about carving out his own career in Hollywood, his role models and his upcoming film, The Riot Club, for the publication. Check out more quotes below, along with photos snapped by Kai Z. Feng.
OUT magazine’s annual OUT 100 issue is on newsstands today. With his coming out making huge headlines, naturally Wentworth Miller is the publication’s “Newsmaker of the Year.” Hands down for us, our post on Miller’s open letter to Russia publicly declaring his homosexuality was our top-viewed one of the year.
Miller wasn’t the only one to get his own cover. Lee Daniels (Artist of the Year), Jim Parsons (Entertainer of the Year) and Edie Windsor (Lifetime Achievment) join Miller at the head of the 2013 class.
Also making it on the prestigious list are Jinkz Monsoon (RuPaul’s Drag Race), country singer Steve Grand, Victor Garber (Alias), Jonathan Groff (Looking), photographer Tom Bianchi, Rex Lee (Suburgatory) and politician Brian Sims to name a few. Check out the other four covers below, along with a shirtless surprise of one of the OUT 100 class. Hint. It’s not Edie. I kid.
I’m sure most Hollywood insiders have known this for some time now, but Maulik Pancholy is making it official. The 30 Rock and Weeds actor is not only coming out but also revealing he’s been with his partner for nine years. The 39-year-old is part of OUT magazine’s OUT 100 list this year.
“I just celebrated my nine-year anniversary with my partner,” Pancholy shared with OUT. “It feels like a nice time to be celebrating something like that, especially on the heels of the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions.”
Since playing Jack Donaghy’s overprotective assistant Jonathan, Maulik has found another regular gig. He’s voicing the title character on Nickelodeon’s animated series Sanjay and Craig which was renewed for 2014. How funny is it that he’s playing another character named Sanjay after playing one on Weeds?
Others making OUT’s list this year are Glee’s Jonathan Groff, American Horror Story‘s Denis O’Hare, comedienne Lea DeLaria, comic and TV reporter Mo Rocca, Suburbatory’s Rex Lee, Scandal’s Guillermo Diaz, and many more. For more, head over to OUT.com.
Josh Hutcherson isn’t holding anything back for his interview with OUT magazine. Almost immediately, the 20-year-old reveals to the interviewer that he’s “mostly straight.” That declaration shouldn’t be too surprising considering, The Hunger Games star is the founder of the youth organization Straight But Not Narrow, which seeks to combat homophobia.
In addition to talking about his sexuality, Hutcherson discusses fame, his gay uncles’ legacy and a potential threesome with Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth. Just the very thought of the latter sends me in a horny tizzy. Check out a few quotes and photos from the latest issue of OUT below.
On His Sexuality
“Maybe I could say right now I’m 100% straight. But who knows? In a fucking year, I could meet a guy and be like, Whoa, I’m attracted to this person. I’ve met guys all the time that I’m like, Damn, that’s a good-looking guy, you know? I’ve never been, like, Oh, I want to kiss that guy. I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded.
The long-awaited official pictures from the Jonas Brothers’ photo shoot for OUT Magazine are finally here. The second a preview image of Nick Jonas in a wife beater surfaced online, fans (and gays) have been wanting more, myself definitely included.
The youngest bro looks absolutely scrumptious in the Kaz Z Feng-snapped editorial. Joe and Kevin do their best to match their sibling’s hotness, but don’t come close, IMHO. Dude’s arms are double the size of either of theirs. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a gun show ;)
Along with mugging for the camera, the three discuss a multitude of topics including Miley Cyrus, twerking, leaving their record label, maturing and those pesky gay rumors. Check out what they have to say about the latter below, along with more photos.
Prior to joining Nashville, Chris Carmack was probably best known for his iconic line, “Welcome to the OC bitch,” as he punched Ryan Atwood on The O.C.. He’s back on network television, no longer a spoiled SoCal rich kid but a closeted gay country singer.
After kissing his straight friend Gunner last year, Carmack has been upgraded to series regular for the ABC drama’s sophomore season. Expect to see a lot more of him in juicy storylines every Wednesday night. Forget Steve Grand, this is my new cowboy crush, albeit he’s straight in real life, but whatever.
The 32-year-old actor sat down with OUT magazine to discuss his character Will Lexington and if he’ll rekindle his bromance with Gunner, upcoming numbers on the show and most importantly… Connie Britton’s hair. LOL.
It looks great. What you see on the show is the real thing. It’s magical.
You know you’re a big deal when you’re on not just one, but two covers in the same month. Both Men’s Health and OUT magazine tapped Joseph Gordon-Levitt to grace their October 2013 issues. Since one is an LGBT publication, I’m going to pick OUT to highlight. That and there were no shirtless pics in the health magazine ;)
The folks over at OUT boldly call the 32-year-old actor as the silver screen’s new leading man. With four films last year and a couple on the way, I couldn’t agree more. Who would’ve thunk the kid from 3rd Rock From The Sun would blossom into one of Hollywood’s hottest actors, literally and figuratively.
Along with mugging for photographer Kai Z Feng, Gordon-Levitt sits down with Aaron Hicklin for in-depth interview. In addition to promoting his new film Don Jon, he talks about gay rumors and his late brother Dan. Check out his answers to these questions below, along with several more pics.
With a couple of movies to promote, James Marsden is on the studio-mandated publicity tour. One of the stops include opening up to OUT magazine about his career and good looks. Yup, his looks. The 39-year-old actor (can you believe he turns 40 next month) knows he has a handsome model exterior but maintains there lies a “drama nerd with a clever plan” underneath. I’m sorry… I don’t attend pity parties ;)
Let’s call a spade, a spade. Cam and Mitchell weren’t enamored by his nerdy side when Marsden guest starred on Modern Family. It was his abs and smoldering bedrooms eyes for sure. His cheekbones were probably also the reason why he was cast as John F. Kennedy in The Butler. Can you imagine him as Richard Nixon? NOT!!!
Inside the September 2013 issue, on sale August 20, Marsden shows off his rugged hotness in clothes styled by Grant Woolhead. Check out his editorial snapped by Matthias Vriens-McGrath below, along with a few memorable quotes from the accompanying interview, including his thoughts on why he turned down Magic Mike.
“I know I have a face like a model. But I’m actually just a goofy drama nerd underneath.”
