Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey Gay it Up at South Beach Lounge


Ewan McGregor, Jim Carrey, and Rodrigo Santoro reportedly caused a stir when they popped in to South Beach's Halo Lounge off Lincoln Road for Edison Farrow's Martini Tuesdays this week.

While none of them drank martinis, (McGregor drank Champagne, Carrey drank water, according to the Miami Herald), they apparently used the visit to do research for their upcoming film I Love You Phillip Morris, a true story about a married father/conman who finds himself in the Texas prison system where he falls in love with his cellmate.

I'm not sure what that has to do with drinking martinis with a bunch of South Beach gays, but if McGregor walked into my bar I surely wouldn't have a problem with it.

More on the film here.

  5. Wow, another cutting edge gay themed movie where one of the characters is married with children. We've NEVER seen that before.

    Are gay relationships only interesting to greater America when at least one of the "lovers" has a wife/girlfriend and child?

    In every movie/television show gay men are always presented as either screaming stereotypes or married with children and screwing men on the side. Is there a SINGLE gay themed movie out there that doesn't fall into one of these two categories?

  7. I didn't know they had gay bars in prison! Must be one of the white collar prisons you hear about.

  8. Yes Jim Carrey is homophobic but so is Sean Penn and he just finish a movie about Harvey Milk.A good role is a good role and Hollywood actors will sell their asses to the Devil to get them.Nothing surprises me about these actors scientologists that will do anything for the buck.The worse part is that gays are part and parcell with these insults by going to their movies.Shame on us for doing it.

  10. Jeez, you guys! Jim Carrey is neither an evangelical nor a scientologist! And where do you get that he hates gays?! He's simply involved in New Thought, which isn't a bad thing at all. Lighten up and check your sources, dudes!
