Numerous well-known personalities publicly declared themselves as gay and for this, they needed a lot of courage because they often faced negative comments. However, there are those stars that, despite being straight, are often regarded as gay. Simply for some people there is no strong evidence that will convince them that these famous people are straight. So, who are these celebrities? You can find out all this information in the following text. Well, let’s start.
Ryan Seacrest is a famous radio and TV person. Rumors were often circulated about his sexual orientation, and even his former girlfriend, Julianne Hough, was talking about it.

In one of her interviews, Whoopi Goldberg very clearly explained her sexuality: “You’ve never seen me with a woman. Pretty much was married to men all the time. I’m straight.” But some people still do not believe her. Perhaps they are the reason for such a consideration, her roles in the movies “Boys on the Side” and “The Color Purple” where she played the homosexual person. Whoopi was also in relationship with Timothy Dalton, Ted Danson and Danny Glover, so she is unlikely to be gay.
Alicia Keys is a very successful singer who has been married for many years with Kassey “Swizz Beatz” Dean. The couple also has children. But people just do not believe that she is straight. She explained the roots of these stories: “I had the baggy/braided/tough NY tomboy thing mastered, that was who I was and I felt good. Then, because of the way I talked about myself, people started calling me gay and I was not gay, but I was hard and although I felt comfortable there, it made me uncomfortable that people were judging me.”
James Franco is a person who has no problem with the stories that circulate about him and his sexuality. There was a situation when he was kissing a man, and that later he was not bothered by rumors.

A famous TV personality such as Oprah Winfrey is often the subject of the media. She is in a long-term relationship with Stedman Graham, but they are not married.

“I’m not a lesbian, I’m not even a kind of a lesbian. And the reason why it irritates me is because it means that somebody must think I’m lying … That’s number one … Number two … why would you want to hide it? That’s not the way I run my life. “
