1. Keanu Gay Rumors
Over the years, people have wondered if Keanu Reeves is gay or straight. Part of what fuels gay and bisexual speculation about the star can be traced to interviews he has given over the decades to the press, including gay read periodicals such as Out Magazine.
Some lines of gossip can be attributed to wishful thinking, which is a primary reason bi and gay rumors swirl around a given male celebrity in the first place.
One specific source of gay chit-chat can be linked to the 1991 hit movie, My Own Private Idaho. In this film, Keanu Reeves co-stared with now deceased River Phoenix. The movie itself became a hit with gays everywhere because of the intimate campfire scene.
In some ways, this movie was a pre-cursor to Brokeback Mountain, another gay favorite flick starting hunky Jake Gyllenhaal.
