1 Staying in the closet was a very understandable move at the time he did it. I don't think he "boned" because of that. He didn't get to be gay in 2012.....that's what people need to understand. A romantic lead like him "coming out" in those days would have been a death knell for his career. Would he have gotten the Dynasty gig? Hell, it wrecked Ellen's sitcom, and everyone including the kitchen sink had a "you go gay girl" attitude going into that. Bottom line, even today, once you "come out" people more closely scrutinize the characters you play, and the moment you're asked to play a "straight" you're going to be under a microsope from people looking for wooden or contrived acting in that situation. Looking back on it, how awkward is it to see Robert Reed nuzzling Florence Henderson? How painful is it to watch Dick Sargent kissing Elizabeth Montgomery? Rock Hudson was actually a way better actor along those lines, but he was also helped by the ambiguity about his personal life (until he got sick). He was an exception. By and large, gays aren't very good at playing straights. That's why Jim Parsons' "coming out" was a mere formality for anyone paying attention. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:17 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I'll Tell you what, while Rock was certifiably gay, I could never tell from watching his movies or even his tv show Mcmillen and wife, or any interview I saw him give like on the tonight show or something. I heard that he was flaming in Hollywood, but he was such a good actor that he even fooled other actors. Rock Hudson was a terrific actor. nuff said -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 8, 2010, 12:12 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I remember hearing that Rock Hudson was really gay when I was a kid, prompting me to ask my parents what that meant. Man, was *that* an awkward moment! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 13, 2009, 4:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
