As a celebrity, life is a constant bombardment of scrutiny in the public eye. Everyone from fans to haters are eager to know every detail about lives of the stars. It’s why some celebrities try to stay out of the limelight and attempt to live their lives as privately as possible. Unfortunately, certain information cannot help but get out.
Hollywood has always been somewhat accepting when celebrities have publicly admitted that they are homosexual. But even in our society, celebrities fear what being gay can do to their image. Celebrities like Elton John and Ellen DeGeneres have made it important to use their sexuality in order to be role models for others to come out.
You may be surprised to find that there are some celebrities who would rather be discreet about their sexual preferences – at least to the world of Hollywood. It might be scary to let your fans or others know you are gay when people can be so judging. Sometimes, it’s best to keep your professional life and personal life completely separate. You will be surprised to see some of your favorite stars who stepped out as proud of their sexuality.
