Does you peeps think that Elton John's career would get hurt, if he came out and said he was gay?

No, but if he came out and said he was straight...

Actually, EJ's career flourished, didn't it? Thanks Slappy, for reminding us of him. But then, no one believed he was straight even when he pretended that he was. Even when he married Kiki Dee (was that her name?)

Get real people. You'd better believe millions of people would care. He's got a huge fan base. Who knows how many Tom Cruise fan clubs there may be all over the world. I think they would care a great deal. Not saying it's right or wrong, just that many would care.

Of course, if he came out, he'd have a whole new fan base. I'd like to witness that in my lifetime, a major movie or recording star coming out of the closet. My argument has always been that their fan base would merely shift and they wouldn't lose anything. It remains to be seen but I sure would like to see that theory put to the test once and for all.


Your wish has been granted. How about these actors/actresses who came out of the closet... Ellen DeGeneres, Richard Chamberlain, Dick Sargent, Heather Matarazzo. Granted, they are not all superstars, but actors nonetheless. Do you remember Liberace, Rock Hudson and many more who I cannot remember. To me, it doesn't matter one way or another. As long as people don't try to force their lifestyle on me...live and let live.

Who gives a damn? Did being gay hurt Rock Hudson? or Richard Chamberlain?

I think that Cruise is past the age where it would make much of a difference to his fans.

I'm with eoe on this. Would have an effect on his fan base. Some would run away screaming, others might take another look.

I don't think I really care either way <have I ever seen Tom Cruise in a movie? not sure>

naaa, not Kiki Dee. She sang a duet with Elton John.
Don't go breaking my heart.
His wife was Renate something or other.

Tom Cruise is a little oddball in the romance department. He left his devoted wife, Nicole Kidman, for Penelope Cruz and now he's courting someone new. He's a fickle philanderer.

His obsession with his pseudo-religion, request that the studio executives take a four-hour tour of Scientology facilities, and his request for a Scientology tent on a studio lot are causing more hiccups in his career than any rumor that he might be gay.

According to some sites, Tom Cruise has now banned his newly-acquired girlfriend Katie Holmes from starring in a new film documenting the life of Andy Warhol. The film features drug use which offends Scientologists.

Beg to differ, Tico. Rock Hudson never came out of the closet, neither did Liberace for that matter. Richard Chamberlain retired before his Hawaiian life surfaced, Rosie O'Donnell pretty much retired as well, Dick Sargeant disappeared until he died, about the only one that came out before retirement was/is Ellen and she's kicking butt on the talk show circuit. She truly is the only one. Now, if Oprah would just come out...

eoe, Oprah? I don't think so; although none of us are 100 percent certain. Wink

I care more that he embraces the bizarre invention of a science fiction writer as a religion, and might be seen as a role model.

First off...don't call me Tico! Rolling Eyes

Forgetting the rest of them...you said it when you say that Ellen is kicking butt on the talk show circuit! Then why would Tom Cruise be hurt. Is it all that important to you who "comes out" and who does not?
Ok...let us, for the sake of arguement, say that Oprah is gay and she "comes out". What is the result? How will your world be changed?

Not one damn bit, Intrepid. And sorry about calling you Tico.


Exactly my point. Who cares!


No worries on the name. It may bother Tico more than it bothers me Laughing

Maybe Tom will come out and then claim he is secretly in love with Oprah. He just can't resist her chest hair.

Perhaps I misunderstood the question? I didn't take it as being asked if I would care personally but whether these stars coming out would matter to others, like their huge fan clubs and such and again I say that if Tom Cruise came out of the closet, there are alot of people, all over the world, who would care. Maybe not you or me or many on A2K but the world is much, much bigger than us, right.
