Leonardo DiCaprio and Clint Eastwood on Gay Issues, 'J Edgar'

In the new issue of GQ, Clint Eastwood and Leonardo DiCaprio discuss the gay element in J Edgar, Eastwood's forthcoming biopic of FBI director J Edgar Hoover.

Dicaprio First, a little talk about same-sex marriage.

Says Eastwood to GQ:

"These people who are making a big deal about gay marriage?" I don’t give a f**k about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of ... Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want."

DiCaprio: "That's the most infuriating thing--watching people focus on these things. Meanwhile, there's the onset of global warming and these incredibly scary and menacing things with the future of our economy."

As for the gay element in the film (via USA Today), Eastwood says:

"I'd heard all the various controversies and gossip—that he wore dresses at parties. Everybody was saying, maybe he's gay because he'd never gotten married. But that's the way they did it back in the '40s. If a guy didn't get married, they always thought, Oh, there's something wrong with him....[Associate FBI director Clyde Tolson and he] were inseparable pals. Now, whether he was gay or not is gonna be for the audience to interpret. It could have been just a great love story between two guys. Or it could have been a great love story that was also a sexual story...It's not a movie about two gay guys. It's a movie about how this guy manipulated everybody around him and managed to stay on through nine presidents. I mean, I don't give a crap if he was gay or not.""

Says DiCaprio:

"What we're saying is that he definitely had a relationship with Tolson that lasted for nearly fifty years. Neither of them married. They lived close to one another. They worked together every day. They vacationed together. And there was rumored to be more. There are definite insinuations of—well, I'm not going to get into where it goes, but…If I were a betting man, I actually don't know what I would bet [regarding his sexuality]."

Jets QB Mark Sanchez Mocked by Packers QB for GQ Fashion Spread

Sanchez

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers this week mocked a photo spread of Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez which appears in this month's GQ, appearing to suggest that it wasn't manly enough.

Said Rodgers of the photo, which shows Sanchez in Tommy Hilfiger sunglasses, white Gucci jeans, and a tight black Dolce & Gabbana tank top with a Gucci coat slung over his shoulder:

"Look at this, that's embarrassing. Page 94 of this GQ thing here, that's terrible."

Sanchez responded to the remarks:

"I think he was, obviously, making a joke out of it, and that's fine, giving me a good ribbing like the guys on our team. That's totally understandable, but I'm just happy that it ended up working out for a good cause and we got to partner with two great companies and one great charity, with Hugo Boss and Tuesday's Children. It worked out for the better and I can take a little razzing for the way it ended up. I know he's just joking around, so that's totally fine."

Duane Roggendorf sounds off in This is FYF:

In all seriousness, my primary irritation with all of this is the fact that it's even a story. Why? Because in being published, this just perpetuates the idea that Sanchez has anything whatsoever to be ashamed of in wearing clothes that fit, which further perpetuates a permeating element of sports culture in general - and, ultimately, the concept of manhood itself - which is the idea that our masculinity is constantly called into question and must be proved EVERY SECOND OF EVERY DAY by completing asinine "tests" like not flinching when someone punches you, denying you've ever enjoyed the sound of music that isn't Pantera or Santana(??) (or enjoyed The Sound of Music, period!) and a thousand other patently ridiculous "proofs" that have nothing to do with being truly manly and everything to do with being a lemming who'll follow anyone off a cliff for fear of being ridiculed.

As far as we're concerned, Sanchez should keep doing these types of photo spreads as long as he wants.

What's next, Tom Brady in a commercial for Uggs?

Well, yes, AFTER THE JUMP...

Dick's Just One of Kellan Lutz's Boys

Kellan_lutz

Kellan Lutz shows off in the pages of GQ Style Australia, and lets their writer in on how he keeps himself company:

...any mortal man in the presence of a towering powerhouse like Lutz can’t help but feel like a yellow-billed oxpecker on the back of a great hippo. Which is why I’m relieved when Kevin the chihuahua suddenly scampers off to bark at something inside. “That must be Dick,” Lutz says, following Kevin into the house. “Dick’s one of my room-mates.” Lutz isn’t dating anyone at the moment, but still. Room-mates? “I like being around people,” he explains, “so I posted an ad on Craigslist saying I was looking for new blood.” He looks to see if I get the joke. “Dick came by and we liked him, so, yeah, now he’s one of my boys.”

More shots, AFTER THE JUMP...
