Well, this came up in a google search for 'George Clooney'.  I think we can all guess what Perez Hilton is trying to suggest.   Anyways, happy readin!

Renee Zellweger Raises Questions With ‘Being The Ex-Girlfriend’ Of A Gay Man Comment

Man, Renee Zellweger is on a roll!

But another exchange in that same interview is now raising even more questions — some of which are years old.
It all started when the conversation with interviewer Jonathan Van Meter moved toward Renee’s relationship with the gay community, as it related to her playing gay icon Judy Garland in the new biopic Judy.

Unfortunately, not knowing what to say led to sound bytes the star didn’t think were reflective of her appreciation of the community:
“Now I just sound like a jerk, because I don’t think about it, which kind of sounds like, Oh, you’re just indifferent to it. And it’s completely the opposite! I had a very hard time answering his question. And then I thought, Well, what isn’t it? I’m not a wife of, I’m not a daughter of, and I’m not a sister of or a mother of… But I’m everything else. Everything else! I’m the obvious: I’m an ex-girlfriend of, I’m a best friend of, I’m a mentor of, I’m a student of, I’m a client of, a partner of, I’m a neighbor, I’m a boss, a collaborator. I’m a patient. I’m a customer. I’m a constituent!”

Ha! We like that. We, too, are constituents of a number of communities.

the interviewer feels comfortable enough to delve into a more personal area here, writing:

“It’s interesting that both Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli married gay men, I say, and here she makes the most complicated and hilarious face imaginable, one that seems to say, all at once, Haven’t we all? And Go figure!

Hmm. She had mentioned being “an ex-girlfriend of.” You can’t blame Van Meter (or anyone) for wondering.

Renee shrugs:

“Cute’s cute. Handsome is handsome! Sweet is sweet. If it works… I mean … I mean! Sometimes it just doesn’t really matter. It just dudn’t. If there’s a spark, it just is, and who needs to explain it?”

Well. Huh.

If she isn’t saying she had a relationship with a gay man, we need to get our reading-between-the-lines prescriptions checked!
Innerestingly, Renee has dated a couple high profile movie stars whom gay rumors followed for years: namely, Bradley Cooper and George Clooney.

Renee Zellweger Raises Questions With ‘Being The Ex-Girlfriend’ Of A Gay Man Comment Renee-Zellweger-and-George-Clooney-in-2008

But that talk has settled a lot since.

And frankly what hot, unmarried star hasn’t had those rumors?? It’s mostly supposition — and a bit of wishful thinking in some cases.
However, for one of Renee’s exes, there was a legitimate scandal of sorts — mostly because the world of country music was not ready to accept a gay star in the mid 2000s. (Maybe not even now, frankly.)

Yes, we’re talking about Kenny Chesney, whom Renee married in May 2004 — a union which was annulled just four months later.

Renee infamously listed “fraud” on her annulment papers, leading many to speculate at the time that rumors about Chesney’s sexuality were true, and that Zellweger was furious at the realization.

Again, mostly speculation.

At the time, Renee released a statement saying she wanted to “clarify that the term ‘fraud’ as listed in the documentation is simply legal language and not a reflection of Kenny’s character,” continuing:

“I would personally be very grateful for your support in refraining from drawing derogatory, hurtful, sensationalized or untrue conclusions.”

Over a decade later, Renee reflected on the gay rumors surrounding her ex, telling The Advocate:

“It made me sad that somehow people were using that as a way to be cruel and calling someone gay as a pejorative, which has fateful consequences.”

We appreciate her speaking out in that way. We really do.

As for Kenny, he didn’t speak much about the rumors but did open up in a 2009 Playboy interview, explaining the “fraud” stipulation in more detail:

“I talked to my attorney and her attorney. In order for us to get an annulment, the legal papers could claim either physical abuse, which wasn’t true, or three or four other things that also weren’t true. The best thing we could put in there was fraud. So I said, ‘All right, do it. Whatever.'”

And about the rumors which caught fire afterward?

“That is the most unbelievable thing in the world. ‘Because Renee cited fraud, Kenny’s got to be gay.’ What guy who loves girls wouldn’t be angry about that s**t? I didn’t sign up for that. I think people need to live their lives the way they want to, but I’m pretty confident in the fact that I love girls. I’ve got a long line of girls who could testify that I am not gay.”

A long line of girls”…? Ugh.

If you’re thinking that defense was a little much, that was just the preface on the Bro Book which followed…
Chesney went on to detail he had slept with we over 100 women, having crossed into triple digits years previous:

“Man, I was over 100 several years ago. I can’t believe I’m actually saying this on the record: That was probably back in 2001. I had a good time in college, I really did. My first five years on the road were intense because I was the guy in college who never got laid until I started playing guitar. There were years when I had a better summer than A-Rod, buddy. You know? I got on the boards quite often. From 1993 to 1998 — those five years were a blur.”

ew. Yeah. Frankly, we believe him. But ick.

Hey, maybe he said that to Renee, and she filed for annulment.

What do YOU think about the Judy star’s “gay ex” comments??

It could be anyone she dated - or no one. I hate "journalists" prying into people's private lives like that . She didn't actually say she had a relationship with a gay man - and if she did, it isn't her place to out that person to the public. Trying to put her on the spot isn't journalism - it's gossip-mongering. I'm sure there are things in Jared's private life he wouldn't want publicly discussed.

You're right. She certainly didn't need to allude to it at all but I guess it embellishes the connection between her and Judy Garland who's she portraying in her new film - very well apparently. Most of the gossip pieces attached to the publicity seem to be about her facelift

Has she actually admitted to a facelift? I seem to remember seeing something a while back where she said she only looked different because she was living a good life and was happy - not because she had any work done.

The worst thing about he article was how her ex husband was so offended by be called "gay". 
Men's ego is so fragile.

Doug Ross - Considering the world he lives in it isn't surprising he'd deny being gay. A good part of his fan base is probably not too accepting of "alternative lifestyles". Hell, he might just be one of those disapproving good old boys himself.

I thought Chesney’s claim of how many women he has been with was a bit over the top. I don’t know if he is gay or not but I was taken by the way he insisted he has been with sooo many women. ‘Doth protest too much’ comes to mind ...

Dear George Clooney, farewell Mr Fantasy: you had the world in your hands

It wasn’t just Clooney’s looks that made him so appealing – to men and women. Can anyone now fill his bachelor shoes?

The news of film star George Clooney’s engagement to London lawyer Amal Alamuddin has triggered a Mexican wave of despair across the Western World. For Clooney is that rare thing: the objectified male – admired by men and women alike, albeit women making up the more hysterical part. Men want to be him; women be with him, even if only for one night (and, in fact, some of the chaps feel rather similarly).
Clooney, just short of his 53rd birthday, is a bona fide star of the old-school variety, and a significant element of this appeal is his eternal bachelor status. Wed once in the dim and distant past to one Talia Balsam – a woman whose name sounds suspiciously as if he invented it based on his shampoo – he had subsequently declared himself to be not the marrying kind. And that’s just the way we, the slavering public, liked him. In being no one’s husband, he could be everybody’s favourite fantasy.
And so it came to pass that the Las Vegas outpost of Madame Tussaud’s boasted a “Marrying George Clooney” photo opportunity, in which visitors could don a wedding frock and stand next to a waxen statue of the actor clad in a tuxedo; a cult tourist attraction not merely for the girls.
For who among us remembered the original Gorgeous George (American wrestler George Wagner), after the advent of Le Clooney? It is something to do with that smile: an easy, open, self-effacing grin-plus-requisite-twinkle that makes man, woman and child alike think: “Oh, that’s all right, then.” Even those previously unaware of their status as Neoplatonists could understand that this beatific masculine pulchritude was somehow a reflection of all that was good in the universe.
As with so many an objectified female star, adulation also required a hairstyle. Clooney laboured for a good 15 years in a big-hair wilderness that carried him no nearer fame than a role in 1998’s Return of the Killer Tomatoes. It was a seminal new haircut that brought him his breakthrough part as Dr God’s Gift (technically: Doug Ross) in the Nineties sex and scrubs drama ER. A big-screen presence followed, in which he cornered the market in easy, open, self-effacing-grin-plus-requisite-twinkle type roles.

For an indisputably dashing chap, Clooney has maintained a pleasing lack of vanity, as anyone who witnessed his tubby, flip-flop running as the cuckolded hero in 2011’s acclaimed The Descendants can testify. A run-in with Bell’s Palsy as a teen, failed baseball career, two false starts at university, and the aforementioned pre-ER hair atrocity seem to have kept him grateful and grounded.
Meanwhile, his innate personality – itself not an attribute shared by many Hollywood denizens – would appear to be of the good egg variety. He is evidently in possession of a brain, a hinterland, is universally liked in addition to being adored. An altruist as he is an activist, Clooney is famously concerned: about voting, about the Democrat cause, about Darfur, Haiti, the Sudan. Given a wrong, he is keen to right it, even if it means getting banged up for his cause, as he was in 2012, when he was arrested outside the Sudanese Embassy for civil disobedience.
A stalwart champion of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights, he will not “do a Jason Donovan” and deign to deny rumours about his own hotly and heavily debated sexuality. Instead, he has asserted: “The last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, 'These are lies!’ That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community. I’m not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing.” If he is closeted – this not only adds to his old school, leading-man appeal – it is a very contemporary kind of closet, door insouciantly ajar, details the business of no one.
Meanwhile, there is the ostensibly strenuous heterosexuality, closely documented by the world’s tabloids. Previous Clooney arm candy includes: British model Lisa Snowdon, former wrestler Stacy Keibler, cocktail waitress and “reality personality” Sarah Larson, Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis and Baywatch starlet Krista Allen. A friend of a friend, who received the benefit of his, ahem, attentions, rapturously recalls that it was the single most erotic night of her life.
And there Clooney transcendently hovers: the great 21st-century dashing / modest / concerned / gay / straight / bisexual / universal fantasy of all men and women, beaming bachelorishly, and thus forever availably, away in the global imagination. Until now. Worse, Ms Alamuddin seems just the kind of perfect woman who would ensnare such an elusive paragon: being bright first, beautiful second.
And, what a beauty – with a lavish, natural loveliness of the sort to make La-La Land’s plastic people only weep, were they able. Fluent in French and Arabic, and now working out of London’s Doughty Street Chambers, she specialises in international law, human rights, extradition and crime. Previously, she served as an adviser to former UN Secretary general Kofi Annan, now special envoy to Syria, a subject close to her fiancé’s heart.
Alamuddin, 36, and once voted “hottest barrister in London”, issues from a family of prominent Lebanese intellectuals, who fled warring Beirut when she was a child to settle in Buckinghamshire. Her father is business academic Ramzi Alamuddin, her mother the celebrated journalist Baria Alamuddin, foreign editor of the Lebanese newspaper Al Hayat. After leaving St Hugh’s College, Oxford, where she gained a 2:1 in law, she studied at the New York University School of Law, before returning to Blighty where she is at once the very model of hard graft and a much sought-after party guest.
Earlier this year, a former colleague of Clooney’s informed People magazine: “He’s with someone who is a very accomplished attorney. She isn’t someone who is pursuing a career in acting or entertainment. She’s on his level.” Some might argue that she occupies a rather dizzier perch.
Regardless, without Gorgeous George, who will fulfil the necessary function of universal bachelor? Johnny Depp has proceeded straight from one long-term relationship into a hurtle toward marriage. Leonardo DiCaprio may be a “modeliser”, but he pursues these clothes horses in the listless and desultory fashion of a man defeated. Meanwhile, in the potential-to-be-lusted-after stakes, he has evolved straight from snivelling sub-aqua waif to he of giant jowls, with no intermediate period. And I cannot be the only individual to fail to distinguish between the various Ryans.
No, if I had to put my money on any bachelor carrying off the Clooney crown, it would be Cameron Diaz. At 41, the actress is acute of cheekbone, pert of pout, fit as a flea, not given to breeding or co-dependency of any sort, keen on men, yet open to the idea of being keen on women, witty, intelligent, socially engaged, widely liked, and clearly something of a gas.
Meanwhile, however much one wishes the happy couple well, one senses this may not be the end of the romantic road for The Cloon. After all, this is a man adept at fantasy, narrative, at keeping balls forever circling in the air. And, reader, I assure you, this is not merely wishful thinking.

Like what? Seems to me she was hinting the marriage wouldn't last. If this had been written today I might wonder what she knows that we don't, but since it was written before he was married I can only put it down to wishful thinking, no matter how much she says it isn't.

Straight, gay or somewhere in between, I think the twins cemented their relationship. Amal would have to do something totally outrageous to get him to bail.
