If Cher didn’t prove once and for all, to all you doubters that Tom Cruise is STRAIGHT- we give up trying! Cher does NOT lie! Back in the 80’s after Tom hit it big in “Risky Business,” he and Cher had a fling. (We’re not sure if he was a Scientologist yet) We happen to have written in Star magazine about an evening they spent necking on the couch at a party at Paul Newman’s house. They also went out in public together. Cher was 16 years older than Tom and they were definitely an odd but affectionate couple for a short time. Cher was crazy about Tom and he was flattered by her attention. Fact is, she wouldn’t have rhapsodized about Tom to Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live”, if it hadn’t been a genuine hetero -romance. So there. (We’re guessing that wig had something to do with the eventual split)

    She also dated David Geffen for what, a couple of years? Mr. Geffen, by his own admission, is gay so how does a “fling” with Tom Cruise prove he is not gay?

    Doesn’t prove a thing. Back then he was already looking for ways to make himself look straight, and making out with a superstar would be one way to make sure people knew about it.

    Oh Come on … The midget isn’t gay…. ??
    He closed his eyes and did her in the ass…and why not??….

    Yes truly many women are fooled by gay/bisexual men. Cher is no exception. She was romantically involved with David Geffen, an avowed homosexual. She must be a pretty cool chick to make all the gay guys want to be with her. But something is up with Tommy Boy. Just like Kirstie Alley and John Travolta who is also gay/bisexual.

    James Dean, Liberace, Rock Hudson all denied they were gay, until the very END. (and several more whose names escape me at the moment). 🙁

    If janet such a super sleuth may be she can find out who is the black mother of tom cruises son. There is no way that he “adopted” Conner Cruise because he resemble Tom Cruise too much.

    Tab Hunter, Robert Reed, Kelly McGillis, Montgomery Clift, Victor Garber & Malcolm Forbes are all celebs that were straight for most of their lives & in the cases of Hunter, McGillis & Garber have come out in the last few years. Forbes & Clift were outed after their deaths. Forbes had about five sons. At the end of his life he was outed by many people but he ignored it, but he also published an editorial in the magazine he owned & edited that read “The only unnatural sex is celibacy.”
    Kevin Spacey was beaten up in a London park that’s used for gay pickups at night.
    Spencer Tracy & Katharine Hepburn had a decades long “love affair” but a couple of recent books have outed both of them. Both were married, Hepburn for a few years when she was young, Tracy’s was for life [he was a very strict Catholic] & he had a son by his wife that he didn’t live with for at least 30 years.

    Truer words never spoken, Janet.

    Why, I remember when Richard Chamberlain was hot and heavy with Linda Evans. And Merv Griffin and Eva Gabor were just moments away from holy matrimony…..

    No wait….. Never mind.

    This picture was pre-nose job for Mr. Cruise, obviously.

    What nose job? He still has the ugly banana nose he’s always had. I’ve never understood his appeal. He’s short, weird and has an ugly shaped nose. On top of all that, he’s a narcissistic, looney scientologist!

    This has to be the dumbest article I have ever read on this site. The gayest guy can usually get it up once to screw a female if absolutely necessary. Look at how many women marry guys and then find out they are gay. One of my friends was married to a gay guy for ten years before he left. Good grief.

    Forgot to add: Reza from Shahs of Sunset said he was drunk and in the shower with his female friend MJ, got excited and they had sex. They don’t come much gayer than Reza, no pun intended.

    Janet, your article proves you are so naive.

    Mimi Rogers, Tom’s first wife, is on record saying he was not particularly good in bed. She later tried to back track but nevertheless it is on record. Arianna Huffington’s husband was gay and I don’t believe she had a clue.

    I’m gay and at one time had a fling with an interesting man who was married with FOUR BOYS. Ted Haggard, head of a large Christian ministry, was gay and hired prostitutes. On could go on and on. Please for being a gossip queen you need to get your gaydar adjusted.

    her’s one for Christineindia, …. Pat Robertson, Billy Graham, Jim Baker, Rick Santorum, Rush Limbaugh (big meth queen), Fred Luter Jr. , Strom, the list is just endless honey …

    I just got here through World of Wonder and this is the first article I read.
    I think I won’t be coming back for another visit.

    Ha…agreed, it is old and stupid. JC posted it because the Press Releases from the Kardashians were late arriving.

    Good God! Hilarious post and thread. Cher proves Tom Cruise isn’t gay?!?!? You have got to be kidding. She has probably dated more gay guys than any other woman alive. Once when I went to her house, there were a couple of gay guys sleeping on the floor of her living room. We have gay friends ourselves, but Cher is more surrounded by gay guys than any straight woman I have ever seen. 99% of her fans are gay guys. As mentioned upthread, she dated David Geffen for quite a while and he bought her a big diamond band (like three rows of diamonds) that she wore on her wedding ring finger. If I see a guy with Cher, my first thought is that he’s probably gay. If Janet posted a video of Tiny Tom doing it with ten women, I would still know he’s gay!

    Cher tried to “cover” for Tom as an act of kindness in those days, like Jodie Foster saying Mel Gibson is not anti semetic. Beards don’t work these days. Besides it gives Cher a little extra publicity in her waning days.

  26. By Samantha

    It was said that Tom Cruise was David Geffen’s boy toy in the early days — so, why wouldn’t Cher help a friend out. She’s always been loyal to her friends.

    Maybe she paid for his nose job.

    Some say Tom has the contacts and is helping Cher get jobs so she pay her bills, make up for all the money she wasted on keeping Chaz pacified.. and keeping her mansion, living in luxury.. so she is nice in ‘kind’ speaking of him in glowing terms.. uh huh..

    Who says Cher doesn’t lie? She maintains that she “did not know” that Gregg Allman was a raving heroin addict when she married him! The whole PLANET knew that he was!

    What a dumb post! Like gay men have never slept with women. Cher does not have the best gaydar. Please see her ex David Greffen.

    Cher is clearly doing an old friend a favor and no way she needs ANY money from Cruise, she’s worth over $150 million.

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
