15 Celebs Rumored To Be Lesbians, But Aren’t
Which Celebrity Ladies Have Allegedly Dated Which Celebrity Ladies? IMDb: The 40 most famous bisexual/gay/lesbian celebrities
There’s an old saying in Hollywood (well, not that old, but time passes quickly in La La Land) that you aren’t anyone in the business until you’ve been rumored to be gay or a lesbian. There may even be some truth to that statement, as no one usually cares to poke and prod into the private lives of any given star until they’re actually stars that matter, i.e. stars with fame, money, and power. The paparazzi and entertainment outlets are always on the lookout for a juicy, fresh scandal, and there’s no scandal like a sex-based one, whether it be one that starts in the mansions of Beverly Hills, the recording studios of New York City, or even the halls of power in Washington D.C.
Throw in the still rising influence of social media in the last decade, and it’s a wonder that any celebrity at all avoids rumors of homosexuality. In fact, given that anyone with access to a smartphone can post rumors about anyone else and see them go viral, those starlets who haven’t been said to be lesbians should either thank their lucky stars (you see what I did there, right?) or blame their publicist. After all, like another old saying goes, “There’s no such thing as bad publicity!” It certainly hasn’t hurt plenty of leading ladies and divas who have played coy with the media about just such questions.
The following 15 lady celebs have certainly faced their fair share of rumors about their sexuality, often for no good reason. The vast majority of them have gone on record as being straight, but, hey… we’ll let you be the judge of that, right? After all, as I said at the top, rumors are what drive the entertainment industry around.
