Joel McHale Rumors: Actor Embraces Gay Chatter

by at . Comments

Joel McHale has something in common with Simon Cowell.

Both stars are heterosexual men rumored to be gay... and both are more than happy if you want to go on thinking that.

"I always find it really weird when guys flip out over someone thinking they might be gay," McHale tells The Advocate. "If a guy gets offended by that, there's something's wrong with him. I take it as a compliment."

The Soup host and Community star has been married (to a woman!) since 1996, but jokes that he has crushes on Brian Williams, Kobe Bryant and Chaz Bono.

He also says he was hit on by men when he was starting out in Hollywood, but now he's just grateful if they support his ratings-challenged sitcom.

"Community needs all the help it can get, so thank God for our gay fans," he says. "Our young gay fans especially are the loudest and most Internet-savvy. That also speaks to the quality of our show, which I think is highly intelligent."
