Keanu Reeves Gay Rumors Explode
Keanu Reeves gay rumors have started to ignite again because of an alleged romantic relationship with transgender actress, Jamie Clayton. In the August 3 edition of The Star Magazine, a story appeared that suggests Reeves is dating the 37-year old Sensate 8 star.
So what’s the story?
According to an unnamed source quoted in the Star, “They’re definitely smitten” [with one another]. Apparently, the two were seen getting rather cozy over dinner at the Chateau Marmont; an upscale restaurant located in West Hollywood.
The Star even ends the piece with the following: “Sounds like this romance is off to a speedy start!”
As the story goes, Keanu and Jamie became close with one another during filming of the movie, The Neon Demon in Europe. For those who want to know, this film is about the dark side of modeling.
Keanu Kissing Jamie?
There’s even a video on YouTube that shows someone who looks like Keanu Reeves and Jamie Clayton at the restaurant. While it is hard to be sure, you definitely see two people who appear to resemble Reeves and Clayton kissing on one another.
We’ve posted the video from Pop Candies TV below. It’s up to you to decide!
Keanu Reeves Gay/Bi?
What’s interesting about this latest bit of chit-chat is how much it contributes to long standing speculation that feeds into a Keanu Reeves gay/bi narrative. As many followers of the actor know, Reeves played the role of Scott Favor in the heavy gay vibe movie, My Own Private Idaho in 1991.

Hooking Up with Transgendered Actresses
Here at the blog, we would like to remind readers that in the past, other stars have allegedly had romantic connections with transgender actresses, igniting a fury of gay rumors.
An example can be found in one Mr. Jared Leto – the sexy celeb who won an Oscar for his transgender role as Ray in the movie, Dallas Buyers Club. Leto allegedly hooked up with well-known transgendered actress, Alexis Arquette. In fact, Arquette even went into massive detail at the time about Leto’s privates!
Some people have wondered if the so called romance between Reeves and Clayton is nothing more than a publicity stunt to help hype up “Neon Demon”. If this is the case, it wouldn’t be the first time.
Channing Tatum has long experienced bi/gay rumors because of his work in promotion of Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL. See our Channing Tatum posts to learn more!
Ultimately, even if Reeves is dating someone transgender, it doesn’t mean that he is “gay” or even “bi”. The reason is simply because sexual orientation and gender identification are two different constructs.
We will say, however, that when most people hear the latest Keanu Reeves rumor, they automatically think “gay”. Thankfully, well known trans-celebs like Caitlyn Jenner are educating the public on these important differences.
What do you think?
Just for fun, we are going to put up a poll that allows you to register your thoughts. We aren’t going to ask you if you think Keanu is gay or bi. Instead, we just want to know what your reaction would be if the rumor were true!
