Did she have to say specifically “4 actors” tho? Was that even necessary. Her message could have been conveyed without being so specific.

 

Yall live for the mess anyways so it doesn’t really matter.

According to Wikipedia, the only openly LGBT actors to be nominated for an Oscar in the 21st century are Ian McKellan, Angelina Jolie, and Lady Gaga....


 

And two of them, well....

Most of you guys are overreacting. She’s speaking up about the injustice that’s causing these ones to feel they have to stay in the closet. People literally speculate the sexuality of every actor in Hollywood already.  She didn’t just open the floodgates by any means because no one will be able to ascertain who she is referring to. The woman has been in this business for decades :rip:

This lol, the overreactions for nothing. People can speculate all they want but nothing will be confirmed or spoiled by what she said

Calm down, saying she knows at least 4 closeted actors is not the groundbreaking statement you think it is. You know, ‘At least 4’ could be 4, it could be 10, it could be 5. She obviously pulled that number out of her ass. She’s Kate Winslet, she meets actors every day of her life...how is this even remotely specific? Your virtue signalling is TRANSPARENT lol kikiki

Well she did say “A well-known actor has just got an American agent and the agent said, ‘I understand you are bisexual. I wouldn’t publicise that.’”

I think that that’s a hint.

Wait a second... Henry is British. He also started a gaming channel which could be a facade for appearing more straight. This kind of adds up

 

I wasn’t truly attracted before but if it’s him it’d be so attracted to him

This! Same with some of these athletes too. I know for a fact athletes hide it because of their career

She didn't out anyone and she's speaking out on a very important issue. I support this. Nothing will change unless people start these kinds of conversations and people telling her to be quiet, especially as a community of gay people, is super baffling to me. This kind of problem is why there is still lack of representation of our community in Hollywood, which directly affects how seriously our rights are taken world wide. The more people who know our stories through film, the more we will be supported.

Her descriptions were vague enough that you'd only bother to start digging if you have way too much time on your hands. Maybe she shouldn't have pointed in any direction, but it's hardly anything that can be damaging to the actors' career.

 

Also, I think Hollywood execs actually place too much stock in this, I legit don't think the average moviegoer cares that much.

When she said the actor just got an american agent, SIS Henry Cavill.

 

And I just checked his team is entirely LA and NY based now!

I don’t think the problem was her saying she knows of 4 actors in the closet but when she actually described one as bi and with a new American agent. Like I can already think of the one she’s talking about :coffee2:

I think this is actually a good thing, she should be speaking out and we should be having this conversation. 

 

Unfortunately having these kind of conversations is never easy, but the main fault isn't with Kate -- it's with the media. They'll sensationalize story into a Whodunnit?-esque witch hunt to try and out the closeted actors rather than encouraging people to have the important discussion about the discrimination towards LGBTQ+ actors in Hollywood.

We'll never solve this issue until we start holding the media and those with mindsets like theirs accountable. Unfortunately, since this kind of sensationalist headlines get more clicks than those encouraging conversations that are actually productive, it'll be a very steep way up.
