Matt Dillon: I'd Love to Play Gay


Boy Culture reports on an article in the March Italian Vanity Fair:

"In the article, he's asked if he could turn gay. Dillon's reply (with thanks to Giulio for a rough translation) is along the lines of: 'Sure, I'd love to. I don't put any limits on myself. There are way too many limits being put on me.'"

And the only thing I can say to that is, "yes, please."

UPDATE: Commenters suggest that the interviewer is asking if Dillon would "play" gay. Certainly a different direction than Dillon himself coming out. Though, that too, would be welcome.

However, the effect works both ways with each 'happy connection' increasing the chance of a person's happiness by nine per cent."

'When it finished, I just felt so proud that I go to his school,' said Matthew 'Matty' Agostini, 18, who watched an advance screening with classmates from Harvey Milk High School. 'After he died, when they showed the people marching and there was a long line of people holding candles, I remember thinking if I was there, I would have been walking too.' Orville Bell, a teacher at the school, said after watching the movie, "I almost felt like screaming into the audience, 'I teach at that school!'"

In addition, 82 retired pastors in Northern California signed a resolution in June offering to perform such weddings on behalf of ministers who feel they can't do so themselves."

Luke and Owen Wilson: Choosing a Butt Double

According to Hollywood Rag, portions of the budget for recent films You, Me and dupree and My Super Ex-Girlfriend went toward butt doubles for Owen and Luke Wilson, respectively. That would be "$500 for an eight-hour day, with an extra charge for naked cheeks."

WilsonsLuke described the process of choosing one's butt double as such: "What they do is they give you photos of different guys' backsides and have you pick one out. I found myself poring over the Polaroids and saying, 'I like that one but it doesn't have quite the pizzazz I want for this scene.' Or, 'This one's good, but it's too muscular.' I've got a little bit of damage back there. As you get a little older, you get little dents and indentations. You want to act cool about it when you eventually say, 'I like this guy's a**.'"

Owen had no comment, but his Dupree co-star Matt Dillon has been inspired to speak on the topic. Said Dillon: "I don't know what's wrong with [Owen's] butt because I didn't pay any attention to it. I truly don't know what that was all about."

Of course, nothing slightly homoerotic ever crosses the mind of Matt Dillon. He recently revealed his shock and repulsion upon finding a friend getting off with one of his socks: "I did have a friend who did that. That's just disgusting. My f***ing sock! They were disposed of immediately, the whole damn drawer of them."

Let's hope Dillon's butt stays tight and youthful so he never has to go through the really gay process of choosing a double for it.
