It seems like every female celebrity in Hollywood with a good publicist is bisexual, so in honour of Bisexual Visibility Day, here is a tribute to 10 sexy bisexual male celebrities who have known the best of both worlds:
In his memoir Who I Am, Townshend said that he’s “probably bisexual” but that Mick Jagger was “the only man I seriously wanted to fuck.” He also talked about hooking up with journalist Danny Fields and described his other same-sex flirtations.
Leto has been the topic of gay rumours for years and has even fuelled them by saying that he’s “gay as a goose” and that he regrets not fucking Colin Farrell when he had the chance. Recently, Alexis Arquette claimed that she had sex with Leto before she transitioned and described his dick as being as big as a “Praetorian Guard’s helmet.” Leto hasn’t confirmed that the two hooked up, but he did grab that helmet onstage in Toronto . . .
The Old Hollywood hunk was married to five different women, but his same-sex attractions are legendary. Gossip columnist Hedda Hopper and screenwriter Arthur Laurents both outed Grant as bisexual, as did Betty White on an episode of The Joy Behar Show. Grant lived with actor Randolph Scott for 12 years, and fashion critic Richard Blackwell described the couple as being “madly in love.”
Brando was another Hollywood icon who didn’t limit himself to one gender. He was open in interviews about his same-sex experiences and was quoted as saying, “Like a large number of men, I, too, have had homosexual experiences and I am not ashamed. I have never paid much attention to what people think about me.”
“In my movies, everyone’s in love with Joe Dallesandro,” Andy Warhol said of his Superstar and muse, the street hustler Joe Dallesandro. Dallesandro is openly bisexual and has been married three times to women. After his Factory days, he reportedly lived with a male hairstylist for several years in Los Angeles.
Billie Joe Armstrong
The Green Day frontman told The Advocate, “I think I’ve always been bisexual . . . I mean, it’s something that I’ve always been interested in. I think everybody kind of fantasizes about the same sex. I think people are born bisexual, and it’s just that our parents and society kind of veer us off into this feeling of oh, I can’t. They say it’s taboo. It’s ingrained in our heads that it’s bad, when it’s not bad at all. It’s a very beautiful thing.”
Bret Easton Ellis
Noted for the bisexual characters in his work, Ellis has accepted the straight, bi and gay labels. In an interview with Robert F Coleman, Ellis claimed to have an “indeterminate sexuality” and said “any other interviewer out there will get a different answer and it just depends on the mood I am in.” The wistful tone of his book Lunar Park was inspired by the death of his lover Michael Wade Kaplan.
For the biography Malcolm: The Life of a Man Who Changed Black America, author Bruce Perry interviewed more than 400 people who knew Malcolm and of his bisexuality. The book documents the civil-rights pioneer’s many same-sex relations and his stint as a sex worker, which allegedly spanned at least a 10-year period, from his mid-teens to his 20s.
In an interview with Out magazine, The Hunger Games star said, “I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100 percent anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded.”
The writer claimed to have slept with two men while at Oxford who later held positions in Margaret Thatcher’s government. Hitchens described himself as bisexual in his younger days until his looks “declined to the point where only women would go to bed with me.”
