  1. Tom Daley is basically living proof of what Josh Hutcherson believes. You never know what will come in your life. Only a month or so ago Tom Daley was telling us he wasn't gay. Now he's telling us he's in a relationship with a man and that it came as a surprise to him. So you truly can't know what the future holds.

  2. Stephen, he made quite clear in his video that he was misquoted on "not being gay" saying that he tried to be coy -- I guess he must have said something along the lines "I do like girls" and the interviewer took that as "not gay".
