29 Celebrities Who Some Believe Are Gay

by at .

Times continue to change in Hollywood and around the country.

Over the past couple years, more and more celebrities have come out of the closet as gay.

But plenty of other celebrities have been accused of being gay. Some have denied the rumors; others have ignored them.

We're not here to pass judgment on anyone, simply to rundown a list of stars whose sexuality has been questioned over recent years...

1. 50 Cent

50 Cent
During an interview with Andy Cohen, Vivica A. Fox implied that her ex-boyfriend was not "quite clear" on his sexuality, even implying he had something going on with Soulja Boy. 50 Cent vehemently denied these accusations on Twitter.

2. Kevin Spacey

The incredible actor has faced this rumor many times, saying of his sexuality in 2010: "People have different reasons for the way they live their lives. You cannot put everyone's reasons in the same box. It's just a line I've never crossed and never will... Look, at the end of the day people have to respect people's differences. I am different than some people would like me to be."

3. Oprah

We've all heard it many times, right? That Oprah is a lesbian and has been dating best friend Gayle King for years. The talk show host says this simply isn't true and she'd never hide her sexuality if she were gay.

4. Jeremy Renner

"It's not f-cking true," Renner said of this rumor in 2012. Well then.

5. Vin Diesel

Vin Diesel
Diesel hasn't even bothered to dignify this chatter with a real response, one saying: "I'm not gonna put it out there on a magazine cover like some other actors. I come from the Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino code of silence. I'm not gonna do that."

6. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon
These two go together because they've only been romantically linked (same sex style) to each other. Said Damon once: "I never denied those rumors because I was offended and didn’t want to offend my friends who were gay. As if being gay were some kind of f--king disease. It put me in a weird position in that sense."

7. Bruno Mars

This all stemmed from a since-deleted CNN iReport (a lame subsection of the media outlet comprising "citizen journalists" from around the world) that read: "The famous pop-star Bruno Mars admits his homosexuality." The singer's rep came out and called this report "fabricated."

8. Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson
Before Clarkson got married (to a man) and had a child, chatter persisted. She once explained why: "I'm from a small town so, like, everyone's married with children or about to have children. So it's a little hard when you go home and people are like - and that's why people think I'm gay - because they're like 'Why aren't you married?' And I'm like, 'it doesn't happen for everyone right off the bat.'"

9. James Franco

James Franco has played many gay men on screen, but: "There are lots of other reasons to be interested in gay characters than wanting myself to go out and have sex with guys," he once told Entertainment Weekly.

10. John Travolta

John Travolta
Where to even start with this one? The husband of Kelly Preston has been the subject of endless gay chatter. His lawyer sent a five-page letter to Gawker threatening to sue over posting "false and outrageous" allegations in a story the site ran in 2010 called "The Secret Sex Life of John Travolta."

11. The Situation

Former Jersey Shore co-star and housemate, Snooki, said in the past of The Situation: "He told me one time, '[All the gay talk is] making me wonder.'" Coming out of the closet would help Sitch find his way back into the spotlight.

12. Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart
Kristen Stewart has been seen holding hands with a woman. She's probably bisexual, which is totally fine by us. But the actress says she wants to keep her private life just that: private.

13. Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise has been married to three women and filed multiple lawsuits against publications that have claimed he's homosexual.

14. Zac Efron

Blogger Perez Hilton started this one, likely due to his own fantasties. Efron responded to the rumor once by saing: ""I know it's very addictive to read that kind of stuff. It's entertainment. Honestly, if the worst [Perez Hilton] can say about me is that I'm gay, then I think I'll be fine. I can handle it."

15. Alicia Keys

Keys is straight, but she once acknowledged why the lesbian rumors made sense: "I was definitely rough around the edges," she said. "I look back at certain interviews and I'm like, 'Damn! Did I have to look that hard? Did I have to do my hair that way?'"

16. Ryan Seacrest

Ryan Seacrest
"He totally wasn't my type," Julianna Hough once said, according to TMZ.com. "I thought he was gay." And Hough dated Seacrest! But the TV personality says he "very much [loves] women."

17. Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana is cool with the rumors of her sexuality, saying: "People have sometimes told my grandmother, 'Your granddaughter has a bit of lesbianism in her... It's that my sisters and I spent all our time among men. We were very popular with them. Our way of thinking is very masculine."

18. Taylor Lautner

Remember him? Talk started after fake People magazine leaked in 2011 with him on the cover and a caption that read: "Out and Proud." But the actor spoke with GQ Australia earlier that year and refuted claims about his sexuality, saying simply: "I'm straight."

19. Hugh Jackman

Sorry, fellas. Yes, Jackman can sing with the best of them on Broadway. But he's very happily married to Deborra-Lee Furness.

20. Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg
We go back to 2006 with this rumor and this quote from The View co-host: "No, I am not a lesbian. I describe myself as heterosexual. I think it is hard to have good relationships with anyone."

21. Jake Gyllenhaal

Some believe Jake Gyllenhaal is gay simply due to his role in Brokeback Mountain. Guess that means he's a great actor!

22. Hulk Hogan

Hogan's ex-wife, Linda, once said the wrestler had an affair with former WWE sta Brutus Beefcake, to which Hogan said: :Just to say something spiteful and hurtful, I don’t get it...if it was true and I was gay, I’d embrace it, and I’d tell you guys about it and I’d celebrate it."

23. Daniel Radcliffe

Mr. Harry Potter had a basic response to this rumor: "If people want to say that, they can. But I'm not. I'm straight."

24. Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson

Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson
One Direction fans have written fictional stories about Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. They have given them a couples nickname and everything. Too bad both are straight.

25. Dolly Parton

Parton has been married to a man for 46 years. But she has a best friend named Judy, so... "Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade," the singer has said. "We still just have a great friendship and relationship and I love her as much as I love anybody in the whole world, but we're not romantically involved."

26. Ne-Yo

Ne-Yo, who has two children, took offense to this claim in 2012, saying at the time: "That sh-t ate me alive...[I was] like where did that come from? Who are these people that have gone to such heights to try to make people believe this? They went all out with that story."

27. Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney
In her divorce papers from Kenny Chesney, Renee Zellweger said the marriage was a "fraud." This sparked gay rumors that the artist has denied at every opportunity.

28. Jennifer Hudson

After performing the marriage equality anthem "Same Love" with Macklemore and Mary Lambert at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Hudson faced questions about her own sexuality. She responded that she's straight, but a friend to LGBT causes and this was a "powerful statement" she wanted to be a part of.

29. Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus
Talk about a good friend to the LGBT community. Cyrus has talked openly about her very open sexuality and it would not surprise us if she ended up with a woman.
