Wow. This is so crazy. On May 6, an alleged ‘well-known’ actor shared an anonymous, yet lengthy, post on Reddit about how he’s not only gay, but strongly ‘dislikes’ his fans. In fact, he used the word ‘hates.’ He didn’t provide his name, but he did leave a bunch of clues about his identity. Read them here!
An alleged “well-known” actor just came out of the closet on Reddit, but unfortunately, this person refrained from releasing their name in the May 6 post. It’s the biggest mystery in Hollywood right now, and fans are scrambling to figure out who this person is.
It’s also funny because these are the same fans this alleged actor claims to “hate.” Yes, that’s right. Not only did this unknown actor admits he’s gay, but he also blasted his fans. The title of the entry is called “I dislike my fans,” after all.
“I am an actor. Well-known. A few of my movies are among the top-grossing in history. I started out as a child actor and fortunately have worked ever since.
1. I hate my fans. Appreciate them but hate them. I hate them because they hound and harass me. I am not an attention whore. I don’t tip off the paps, party, etc. I usually enjoy being by myself. I can’t even be open about being gay. What really irks me is how fans call me by this character’s name and start touching me and asking for pictures like I am one of those guys dressed like a Transformer on Hollywood/Vine. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always chat and take a picture with a fan if they are cool or for a young fan, but most people are assholes.
2. I hate the way they ask me for money and think I have money. I see these sites where fans will say I am worth like $20 million. BITCH PLEASE. I am worth more like $4 million. And I don’t even live a lavish style. Far from it. I may get four movie offers ranging from $1 – 4 million. I probably take a quarter of that at the end. Most often I turn down the higher-paying movies because they will do the most damage to your career. Sometimes I won’t get any offers. I have tons of expenses. I have to pay lawyers, accountants, family, etc. Don’t even get me started on taxes. Also, if I ever become disabled or can’t work anymore, then I am fucked.
3. They think that I can get them work. No I can’t. That pisses me off more than anything.
4. My life is not that glam. Most famous people are not that interesting. They’re uneducated. They’re ignorant. They’re paranoid. They’re full of themselves.”
And below, you’ll find this actor’s responses to Reddit users’ questions.
“I get scripts through my management team. Being in a huge franchise did not do much to help my career even though I had top-billing. I did some TV on my own dime and lost a ton of money.”
“[I am not out because I] would become a “gay actor” instead of an “actor.” “Gay actors” get less offers because of the concern that audiences will not believe that they can play a straight character and/or many many people still hate gays and won’t see their movies.”
“People know me mainly from the franchise that I was in but also from my time as a child actor. They often say how I still look like a teen even though I am def. no teen.”
“I don’t have friends. Many Hollywood people just want to party and many non-Hollywood people expect that your friendship will enrich them in some way. Can’t tell you how many times non-Hollywood “friends” have hit me up for money, work or contacts.”
We’re not even going to begin to name names, because it’s not cool to out people, but we’ll let you tell us who you think it is.
