Book: Christopher Reeve Had Affair with Gay Porn Actor

Reeve

A new book, Hollywood Babylon Strikes Again, makes the claim that the late Christopher Reeve once had an affair with the late gay porn star Cal Culver (aka Casey Donovan), who starred in the legendary gay adult film Boys in the Sand.

"Culver, who died of an AIDS-related illness, told the unnamed interviewer he met Reeve when both were auditioning for the same Broadway role in the mid-1970s. In the chat, the porn star says, 'Christopher was a great lover and I think I liberated him sexually. I didn't think he was gay but he seemed willing to try anything once. He was curious.' In the book extract, obtained by the Globe, Culver calls Reeve 'the man of my dreams' and reveals the two men had a passionate affair that lasted for two months - until the future Superman learned his partner was a gay porn star, who performed under the name Casey Donovan."

Now, quoting a dead gay porn star about a dead screen icon doesn't offer much in the way of credibility, but, it doesn't make for a bad fantasy.

  2. How convenient that this gets published after both participants have died.

  3. You know it is believable. In the 70's and 80's lots of guys experimented. It was a different time.

    It's not THAT far fetched.

    Hell I used to get stoned with Willie Aames in the early 80's. (When he was cute)

    Things were just "different" then.

  4. If that were true, you'd think he'd have an easier time staying on a horse.

  5. Unfortunately, the credited "author" of the book, Darwin Porter, has a long long record of making things up in his previous books about Merv Griffin, Paul Newman, etc. His credibility is zero.

  6. One word - bullshit.

  7. I would believe it, because I met Cal Culver in the early 80s. He was escorting at the time, and I met him through one of his regulars who was my friend (also no longer with us), and we hooked up. He was an interesting guy. At the time he was very talkative, and if you believed him, he had sex with everyone. He was not discreet, rattling off a list of famous clients. There was also a time in the 70s, after his porn movies came out, where he was sort of IT in a certain NY City gay circle, sort of the ideal man, looking like Robert Redford, going to clubs all the time. He was one of those porn stars who was available to everyone. He had a ridiculous amount of sex. There's no way to verify if he had an affair with Reeve, but it would make sense. He had affairs with everybody.

  9. Our "fruit-dar" spotted Mary Reeve DECADES ago. You must be very slow sisters to have not done the same.

  10. Why even give pure bullshit like this attention? Even if it's true why do i give a rat's ass?

  12. How convenient that all the parties are dead. BS

  13. re: my previous post: I meant to write "alleged participants". I don't believe this crap for a New York Minute.

  14. Cal Culver was kept for many years by actor-turned-novelist Tom Tryon. When I worked at the Metropolitan Museum in the early 70's I used to see them there all the time with their pal Richard Deacon ("Mel Cooley" on "The Dick Van Dyke Show") was a fine art expert.

  15. I can believe that a porn star/escort would say such a thing to pump himself up for others. Beyond that though...

  16. Hmm, I googled Casey Donovan, and all I got were pictures of some fat chic. No wonder Christopher Reeve couldn't walk.

  17. I shared a rather intimate moment in the mid 80's being cruized by Mr. Reeves...believe what you want, I know what I experianced, and it was mutual. Having been in the periphery of the Hollywood scene back then it is amazing to think back on who was fucking who back then...if you don't believe it then you weren't there, and don't know much about how celebrities behave off set. Still, it's old news...and shouldn't define anyone, especially those that have gone on to do such good in the world.

  18. Interesting Miss Booka. We were cruised in the manner you describe by both homosexual arnold schwartzenegger and homosexual warren beatty.

  19. Why are people (esp GAY people) so shocked and horrified when they find out that an ACTOR is/was gay/bi/experimenting? I mean, REALLY? ACTORS?!?

    But, Darwin Porter ISN'T the most reliable of "writers", though his books are hugely entertaining trash with a thin veneer of truth underlying all the "recreated" conversations.

  20. I was told Christopher was gay 20 years ago..I always thought it was known.

    Posted by: wonderer | Jul 22, 2010 1:32:34 PM


  21. I heard all kinds of stories here in La La Land about Christopher Reeve and his taste for peen. I wouldn't call it experimenting, either.

    Juicy info, but yawn.

    Posted by: Marcus | Jul 22, 2010 1:47:15 PM


  22. Old news. I can remember when there were titters about him being cast as Superman initially. Many suggested he was at-least bi back then...and then there was "Deathtrap".

  23. I know Reeve was gay (I met him) but I don't know if he was ever with that porn guy. Wouldn't doubt it though.

    Posted by: JT | Jul 22, 2010 2:04:41 PM


  24. Exactly. I thought it was known that Reeve was rumored to be gay.

    And oh, having sex with porn stars in the 70s? John Travolta says "Hey."

  25. Potter writes a lot of outrageous crap in his 'celebrity" bios-( Steve McQueen was a teen hustler! ) so this is not that shocking.
