The "gay rumors" question that seems to follow Hugh Jackman to many a celebrity interview is back in a new Hollywood Reporter cover story, giving Jackman an opportunity to possibly express the same "ain't nothing wrong with it" sentiment espoused by evolved beings like Honey Boo Boo, and let the issue die.
Despite these friends and a seemingly idyllic life, Jackman admits rumors about his sexuality have taken a greater toll than previously acknowledged, especially on his wife. "Just recently, it bugs her," he says, blaming the Internet, which she frequents more than he does. (Jackman largely sticks to cricket sites and The Economist.) "She goes: 'It's big. It's everywhere!'"
His X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner shrugs off the gossip. "I have seen him with Deborra since the beginning of their trip to Hollywood, and I've been on five movie sets with him and have never seen him stray, have never seen him eye anyone. I met him when he did Oklahoma! [at London's Royal National Theatre in 1999]. He was genuine, hugely talented. He was in love with his wife that day and still is."

The Episcopal-backed The University of the South will host same-sex marriages in its chapel: "The college itself isn't part of any one diocese. Its religious governing authority is the chancellor, a post that rotates among the bishops of the 28 owning dioceses. In the midst of this announcement, McCardell is calling on alumnus to give $250 to $300 million dollars in a campaign to ensure the university's future, a future that might be jeopardized by this action that many consider outside the bounds of Biblical faith even though culturally acceptable."
Florida's first openly gay lawmakers see equality as a priority. "I’ve done work on civil rights for a long time. But in the campaign, my focus was mostly on jobs, education and fairness and opportunity," said Rep. Joe Saunders, a former Florida Equality activist.

NOM henchman Frank Schubert on failed GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich accepting the "reality" of marriage equality: "Sometimes good men say stupid things, and this is one of those times.
