Funny! I've always thought poor Jessica Simpson was the biggest beard ever...might have to reconsider...
Hey, Matt Bomer! Have I got the girl for you!! LOL
There will only be speculation unless the person (actor) actually confirms it. There are probably a ton of guys who are married or have girlfriends who mess around with guys or want to and no one will ever know except the people they're messing with.
*YAWN* . . . .
I can't believe this turned into another thread like this... this is the Celebrity News & GOSSIP section. And no matter people want to believe, look at the threads here...it's primarily GOSSIP...and they know it.
It's just that...if you don't like it, go somewhere else. There are plenty of other sections on this board to chat in.
As for myself, I'm not really even attracted to most of these guys...I just find the way the Hollywood system works in regards to sexuality as a really fascinating thing. And why people always say "well, just because they are good looking, then you think they're gay" etc...well, sure are there plenty of gay/bi folks in HW that aren't the young heartthrobs, sure. But most people, especially folks at a board like this, are going to interested in young, good-looking people. It's only natural.
I just find it kind of ironic... this is a gay porn site with a popular message board with a popular gossip section about male celebs, and gay/bi boys bicker and fight over protecting celebs that they don't even know. There are boards out there full of FAN GIRLS that gossip harsher than us 'boys'...and even they can see through a lot of Hollywood's bullshit.
Hollywood is just a big corporate machine...you're seriously going to believe anything and everything professional publicists, celebrity "brand" makers, and whatnot tell you? Look, no one's saying everything is a lie...no one is saying 'everyone's gay'... but it's a business of a lot of smoke and mirrors. Old rules that it continues to rule by...and sexuality is still a taboo issue. Hence, why there is a rumor mill...and gossip. It's not our fault. The business perpetuates it itself.
Here, let Mr. Ian McKellan tell it like it is -
Miley would easily beard, but she's way too young, so she's out.
Ashley Greene is taken.
Olivia Munn, maybe?
Kristen Bell? (she covered for M.Morrison, M.Bomer and Z. Quinto or at least that's what their publicists would want you to believe.)
I'm just curious if he would go really down market--like Shannon Elizabeth or somebody like that.
Have any of you guys listened to Taylor's latest masterpiece "Speak Now". I was curious to know what you guys thought of it, that includes people who don't like her too.
I downloaded the album a couple weeks ago, but I've yet to listen to it in full. I do really love "Mine" though. I was sort of obsessed with it for a while. :P
I listened to the album, but I failed to recognize this "masterpiece" you speak of. Then again, I'm at least fifteen years outside the demo.
I like it a lot. I would also say that I prefer it to the last album. On that one there were just a couple of stand-out tracks for me, whereas on this one, most of them are good to listen to. However, when I've listened to it, I've enjoyed it more when it's been on as background music rather than when I've listened to it on my mp3 player for example.
We never travel as far as when we don't know where we're going.

Honestly, I really liked it. As much as I make fun of Taylor, I liked the album. I actually love some of the songs, especially the one about John Mayer.
I do think part of the reason she's successful is because her songs are easy to sing along to in the car. I mean, its harder to sing along to Mariah or Celine .... if you sing along to Swift you feel like you're just as good
I won't lie, I love the whole thing.
Judge me if you want. We're all going to die one day...and I plan on deserving it.
A few of the songs were catchy, but I found the album just way too slick. There's so much "polish" on it that it's impossible for me to enjoy except in anything more than the most superficial way. There's nothing wrong with polished pop - the Scissor Sisters are great at it, and the new Pipettes is a lot of fun. But I didn't get much personality out of this album.
I got the new Robyn full-length, and am enjoying that one.
Hmph, well me and uhm 3,000,000 other people who bought the album since its release ALL disagree with you.
Oh, are you referring to the catty, bitchy song Speak Now narrated by a malignant narcissist...the one that insults everyone at the wedding aside from her beloved? How does this chick even pass off the 'cute' thing anymore? She sounds like a total cunt if she's truly writing from the heart or whatever she claims.
Taylor Swift pens masterpieces...yeah...if someone with grade eight writing skills writes masterpieces I'm shocked.
The title song is probably the best song on the album, but there's more than one standout track.
We can all laugh at her on forums and shit, she laughs at us on the way to the bank I suppose, so we end up with the short end of the stick =(
I've been an avid Taylor Swift fan since her first album and I have to say her latest album has been lacking.
It may be difficult to imagine, but there was a time that Swift wasn't all bubblegum pop and would never be associated with artists such as Selena Gomez, Taylor Lautner, or the Jonas Brothers.
Since the success of Love Story, Swift has been hard at work appealing to her tween fans and it shows. Speak Now feels much more engineered than her previous albums and a lot of the heartfelt country songs have disappeared.
The singles Mine and Speak Now are particularly weak. Swifts voice is lifeless and unenthusiastic singing about silly madeup events.
Swift has also increasingly resorted to exploiting her status as celebrity whore to pen mediocre songs and attract publicity. Most notably, Dear John is a bitter ballad directed at John Mayer accusing him of playing "dark, twisted games" on a 19 y.o. Back to December is a corny, insincere apology to Taylor Lautner.
The one gem in the album I believe is Mean. The song is more reminiscent of her earlier works before her target demographic lost 30 years.
"Better than Revenge" is my favorite song by her.
To be honest, I find her music to be dull/vanilla.
Beyoncé had one of the best songs of all time.
- Of all time!
It's getting to be that time again! Her new single will be out over the summer and a new album in October. WHO'S EXCITED.
I do think she can hit a million again but we will see. She has 14 million followers on twitter, so if you say 1 in every 14 people that follow her is a fan and buys her album in the first week she is already at one million.
I love Taylor Swift <3 I swear she follows me around and writes about my life!
I make my bed with the stars above my head and dream of a place called home.
I thought she died.
Go Taylor!!!!!!On our list of the 10 highest-paid celebrities under 30, women take six spots, and four of the top five, led by Taylor Swift at No. 1. We estimate that between May 2011 and May 2012, Swift earned $57 million. Each of the 22-year-old singer’s three albums have gone platinum at least four times, meaning that in these days of waning music sales, Swift can be counted on to sell at least 4 million copies of every album.
Taylor Swift wins 5 more awards
Country music star Taylor Swift, 22, picked up five awards,
including choice music female artist and female country artist,
as well as voice actress for her role in animated comedy "The
Lorax." The singer was also among the top winners last year at
the awards show that airs on the Fox television network.
She has done so much at such a young age.
Make some more room on that mantle, Taylor Swift! The songstress can add another award honor to her repertoire from one of the most famous families in America.
The newly dark-haired singer will be receiving the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rightsthis December.
The award honors leaders in entertainment, business and social activists who work to make a change in society. With Taylor’s efforts to inspire and change the younger generation, organization president Kerry Kennedy knew the fit was perfect.
“Taylor Swift’s dedication to advocacy at such a young age continues to inspire me, and I’m delighted to honor her as one of our 2012 Ripple of Hope Award recipients.”
He continued in the statement to rave about her accomplishments: “as a young person, Taylor has already accomplished so much, and I look forward to watching all that she will do to help build a brighter, more peaceful world for us all.”
Swift will join previous prestigious honorees including President Bill Clinton, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Bono, George Clooney and Vice President Al Gore.
I don't think that Patrick has that much pull with the award committee.
Taylor Swift is flirty with a Kennedy, and suddenly she's getting the Robert F. Kennedy Award. Coincidence?
—C. Theorist, via the inbox
I adore a good conspiracy theory as much as the next paranoiac. And, at first, there does seem to be an interesting coincidence going on.
Yes, I can confirm that 22-year-old country-rock-power-pop star Taylor Swift will receive a prestigious award Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.
And, of course, Swift also happens to have become tight buddies with Patrick Schwarzenegger, son of actor Arnold and Kennedy-by-blood Maria Shriver. In fact the singer and the 18-year-old model spent Independence Day at the Kennedy compound in Cape Cod.
So are the two facts connected? Here's what I dug up:The first thing you should know is that this a award is a big deal. Awarded to big people. Who have done very, very big things. Like, say, rule the free world. The honor, called the Ripple of Hope Award, highlights "leaders of the international business, entertainment, and activist communities who demonstrate commitment to social change," according to a statement from the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.
Previous recipients? How about President Bill Clinton, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Bono, George Clooney and Vice President Al Gore?
And now...Taylor SwiftBut before you start making accusations of nepotism—or whatever it is when someone spends July 4 at your family compound and then gets your award—know this: When I reached out to the foundation, the person who spoke to me hadn't heard of the Patrick Schwarzenegger/Taylor Swift friendship at all.
And one other thing you should know: Swift really has, apparently, earned this award.
"What strikes me most about Taylor is the work she does away from the spotlight—her leadership in the movement for arts education, her generosity to communities devastated by natural disaster, and especially the compassion she's shown as a proud defender against bullying and LGBTI discrimination," Kennedy Center President Kerry Kennedy said in a statement. "As my father Robert Kennedy said to the students of South Africa in 1966, our world's hope rests with our youth.
"As a young person, Taylor has already accomplished so much, and I look forward to watching all that she will do to help build a brighter, more peaceful world for us all."
Maybe the Kennedy folks are just trying to reach out to a younger demographic?
Meh. I think the bar has been set too low. I know there are some who have achieved much by the age of, let us say 25, but I doubt some watery tart who has had a couple hits qualifies for any sort of achievement like this, especially when compared to other recipients.

Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day.
Give a man religion, and he'll starve praying for a fish.
I can't wait!!!!
The singer announced on Tuesday (August 7) that she will be doing a live webcast on Monday (August 13) at 7 p.m. ET. The event will go down on her official YouTube channel. The date of the livestream is hardly a coincidence as 13 just so happens to be Swift's lucky number.
"Hey, it's Taylor. So I really want to talk to you about something. I would love it if you would join me August 13 for a live webchat," she said in a video tease posted online. "You can ask questions. I want to share some news with you, some really cool news. Not gonna go into it too much, but it's cool. I'll see you there."
Fans who want to get in on the action can ask Swift questions through a live social chat that will take place during the stream. Additionally, there will be a Google+ Hangout created around the event.
