Jamie Bell: “Me Gay? That’s Absurd.”


Contact Music reports on all-grown-up Jamie Bell and the rumors he’s gay that have been trailing him ever since he moved in with Billy Elliott director Stephen Daldry after shooting that film. Daldry’s now married with child.

Bell told someone (CM unfortunately never lists their sources) recently: “People can think what they want. But I do find all these rumours about whether I’m gay weird. And on a personal level, it’s a bit odd to be talking about it.” On Daldry: “He’s a friend and mentor. He got me where I am today. I don’t think our relationship’s weird and I wasn’t expecting to get so much attention from it. He’s a great person to learn from.”

Bell stars in this month’s King Kong.
