The celebrity XY pickin’s are mighy slim this Friday morning. Fortunately, Josh Hutcherson is here to be pestered by the gays, in more ways than one.
Josh Hutcherson covers the November 2013 issue of OUT magazine photographed by Nino Muñoz.
On his sexuality: “Maybe I could say right now I’m 100% straight. But who knows? In a fucking year, I could meet a guy and be like, Whoa, I’m attracted to this person. I’ve met guys all the time that I’m like, Damn, that’s a good-looking guy, you know? I’ve never been, like, Oh, I want to kiss that guy. I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded.”
On LGBT rights: “I have this dream that one day, my kid’s gonna come home from school and be like, ‘Dad, there’s this girl that I like, and there’s this guy that I like, and I don’t know which one I like more, and I don’t know what to do.’ And it’d just be a non-issue, like, ‘Which one is a good person? Which one makes you laugh more?’”
If we had the time or were so inclined, we’d coach ostensibly straight male celebs how to answer the (to be perfectly blunt: cringeworthy) gay-journalist-posed question on whether they’d ever swing the other way. Because first: there’s no good way to answer such a question and second: anything that isn’t a wave of the hand and a simple bon mot is going to sound like a very defensive response. It’s an awful question and gay mags like OUT have been asking it of straight celebrities for years. They need to stop. It’s not the nineties anymore. Wouldn’t it be kind of offensive if every straight female entertainment journalist pestered Matt Bomer as to whether she’ll ever have a shot with him? Could you imagine Giuliana Rancic saying, “No, really, Matt. Do you think you’ll ever get off the pole and try the hole?”
It’s weird and stupid.
Don’t even get us started on OUT’s looooooong tradition of featuring straight celebrities on its cover. Bah.
Anyway he looks very hot to people half our age.
