He's already for years in the closet together with John Travolta.

R. Kelly: [singing] Man, this is some crazy shit here. Why won't you both just come out the closet, they said?
Tom Cruise, John Travolta: [singing] We're not coming out the closet. You can just go away.
R. Kelly: [singing] But everyone wants you out the closet.
Tom Cruise, John Travolta: [singing] That doesn't matter 'cause we're gonna stay.
R. Kelly: [singing] Now I'm startin' to get angry, so I pull out my gun!
[as soon as R. Kelly pulls out his gun, everyone standing outside Stan's room runs away]
R. Kelly: [singing] I'm gonna give you a count to three to open this closet door, one - I'm gonna shoot you both, two - I'm gonna cap some bitch, three...
[closet door opens. With gun facing forward, R. Kelly slowly approaches the door and enters the closet. The closet door shuts]
R. Kelly: [singing] Now I'm in the closet. Now I'm in the closet too.

Tom Cruise is NOT gay. DEFINITELY NOT. Travolta may have done a couple of things with a guy or two.

PLEASE this queen sets my gaydar off so bad I had to have it recalibrated! The women he's dated or married are just beards.
  ltstarbuck @ 2012-01-01 1 up,0 down
I get it - the gays want tom cruise so badly that they are willing to look for any sign- I don't blame you. He is after all the kind of man that both men and women find attractive. I know I speak for any logical and objective person when I say that its not likely that a man that famous can get away with hiding his real nature for 25 years and counting. So you have 1 very good looking man, add in 95% of the world's queens wanting a piece of him, and perhaps the most compelling of all he is part of a cult which revolves around making money from blackmail. Now call me cynical but I don't buy the gay rumours any more than I believe the whole scientology trying its best to quash them. I think a lot of people want to believe tom cruise is gay and scientology wants to keep these rumours alive to keep hold of her little (not a reference to cruise's height) moneymaker- not by blackmailing him about being gay but by subtly blackmailing him to expose him as gay even if he were not. That is how it works- just ask DMX- different organisation - same tactics. People who believe this rumour- believe it because they want to- not because they have looked at all the facts. if a Cruise did try and hide his sexuality he would have found 1 understanding woman like rock hudson, pete burns( had a wife!) and travolta- hudson and travolta were linked to no women - seen around with guys and then suddenly they were married- tom cruise was never seen hanging around with men like that- he went from one woman to the next- no one strikes lucky with that many understanding women! I'm sure this Cruise has made some mistakes and is a bit dodgy to be part of this cult - but that doesn't mean all actors part of it are gay like Travolta. PLEASE slimjim- if tom is setting off your gaydar it is because your gaydar is located in your you know what. I don't know for a fact he is straight but unlike 91% of the voters -I am not going to act like I live in cruise's bed.

gay as a Christmas party. No Doubt, though as a gay man it gives me no pleasure noting it as I think he is a twit.
  @ 2012-01-20 168 up,11 down
If you have enough money, you'll never have any problems finding "understanding" women to cover for just about anything. Ever.
  Steve @ 2012-01-22 39 up,204 down
In real life he has flown fighter jets, raced indy cars (VERY WELL), killer pool player, does almost all his own stunts, married with child for years. Give it up. Guys call him gay cause he makes them look sad. They WISH they could be him!
  @ 2012-01-22 1 up,0 down
Flying jets and racing cars do not disqualify you as a homosexual. Even the wife and kids don't say much about who you really are. He is probably very gay - many performers are. Hollywood is really a funny business that way - using gay men to market heterosexual concepts.
  Qweer @ 2012-01-24 20 up,141 down
Is it a joke? How can he be gay. Ah, wishful thinking, i suppose

Just because he LOOKS gay and ACTS gay doesn't mean he IS gay. A lot of heterosexual men just aren't especially "manly", and Cruise may be one of them. Of course, he doesn't help the rumors by acting like such a sissy. I wonder who Suri's biological father is.
  chris @ 2012-02-23 1 up,0 down
please he is trying so much to pretend to be straight...and is so so so gay, was with his boyfriend for many years, they met while leaving in New York, until scientology brain wash!!!...funny Travolta as well...and the marketing campaign wedding to Nicole..
  Monica @ 2012-02-24 0 up,1 down
He is straight. He is not gay just because you people want him to be.
  Nell-o-tron @ 2012-03-04 1 up,0 down
Travolta is as gay as the day is long. Frankly, I think Cruise is ay, or a-sexual. He looks like a Ken-doll.
  not @ 2012-03-08 23 up,157 down
Tom Cruise is an outright homophobe!!! Far from being a gay!!! He has successfully sued everyone who has ever claimed he even might be gay!!!

Gay claims just don't hold up!
Give it up!!!!
  Cam @ 2012-03-16 0 up,1 down
Not gay. He's way into himself though.
  Jess @ 2012-03-16 0 up,1 down
The biggest held secret in Hollywood-not so secret anymore. That the biggest money maker targeted at young women is in fact gay. Just as Miami knew long before the rest of the world about Ricky Martin, New York and Los Angeles know the truth about Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Jake Gylenhall, Garth Brooks, Will Smith...and so many more it would shock you. Many creative, artistic people are gay in hair dressing, home decor, clothing design...why is it hard to think that Hollywood has a large percentage of gay actors? There is a trade off for the understanding women or beards-they agree to stay married for x amount of years, have a baby or two, or at least adopt, and in return they get money, and guaranteed work in high profile movies, Broadway shows, etc. Nicole Kidman is a perfect example. Wake up people. Dont believe everything thats put in front of you.

Classic closet case. Come out of the closet already Tom. It won't hurt your career. You'll actually gain a whole new fan base of gay men and be a lot happier. Katie will understand and won't take Suri away from you.

It's a well known little fact in the movie industry that he is gay. Whenever you guys get a chance to move to LA and work in this industry, you'll find out for yourself. It's a Hollywood well kept secret.
  swm @ 2012-04-19 1 up,0 down
Hey guys, it's true, Tom is gay. I won't disclose how I know, but it's from a VERY close, accurate source. Sorry for all those hoping he wasn't.

Liberace sued and won - so? Tom and John both belong to scientology cult don't they - who else is a member? Interesting.

I know an actress who was close to him 20 years ago. She hung with him for years. No question, he was either bi or gay.

My gaydar flew off the charts seeing Miss Cruise years ago. After Travolta, she will be the next queen dragged (no pun intended) out of the closet. Wrestling anyone? "clutches the pearls..."
  Hi @ 2012-06-10 0 up,1 down
He is not gay! Come on dudes and dudets! He is married all ready
  Shane @ 2012-06-17 169 up,10 down
Being married does NOT mean you're straight. Tom Cruise will one day either admit he's gay or will outed by someone. Same with John Travolta, though I think everyone knows by now he's gayer than West Hollywood.
  Bobby @ 2012-06-22 1 up,0 down
I went to high school with Tom. Didn't share many classes, but everyone thought/knew he was gay. Then after graduation he went into the seminary. 'MO

Hey ....for those who think because someone is married or is masculine that they Can't be gay? Puh LeeeeZ Rock Hudson? Heeelllloooo! Plus, what about the rumors of a certain casting couch episode some years ago? Hmmmm?
  Rio Carrera @ 2012-06-28 1 up,0 down
I know many gay men in Los Angeles who can vouch for having either seen him in gay bars trolling and/or having had picked up various individuals for sex. I personally have had no personal interaction to verify these allegations but I do trust my sources.
  Justin Feber @ 2012-06-30 1 up,0 down
John is a suppressed gay. He gets married to overcompensate. That's why his marriages never last and never will until he answers natures call.
  Pookie @ 2012-07-01 1 up,0 down
Cruise and Travolta. Both gay. No doubt.
  Alan @ 2012-07-03 1 up,0 down
I do not have an opinion on this but why doesn't someone put up a cash reward to any of Cruise's former partners who would come out of the closet and testify?
  TX drummergrrl @ 2012-07-08 1 up,0 down
I know a couple of his publicists and Tom is 100% G-A-Y. The last 2 marriages (Nicole and Katie) were strictly contractual and Tom didn't even bother to attend the meeting with Katie when the terms of the contract were discussed-sent his lawyers instead. I feel a great compassion for him. The viewership of QAF proved that straight women were anything but put off by the chance a man might be gay, but I don't think Tom is as worried about the world knowing he's gay as he is @ the prospect of admitting he's been a liar for so many years. He's apparently an extremely nice guy though very controlling as well. Its sorta sad. Wealth is nice but in the end it ain't peace of mind!

tommy tunes stop getting married. you look like an ahole.
  @ 2012-07-17 10 up,115 down
There is no proof that he's in the closet. So he is not gay.
  Nicole @ 2012-07-20 1 up,0 down
I have it on good authority from a person involved in the hollywood community that Tom Cruise is gay and that most hollywood insiders have known this for years. Apparently it is common knowledge there. His marriage to Katy Holmes was a contract to be a beard and nothing more.

Not that I want to claim him as one of my own...cause he's a mess, but all you people who say someone isn't gay because they are married and have children crack me up. I "dated" a lot of those "straight" guys. Also the Hollywood machine is alive and well...Ask yourselves., if he was out of closet during all those movies you love so much would you have gone to see them? Probably not because to you it ruins the illusion. Grow up
  @ 2012-10-15 13 up,131 down
I love how people think hes gay because they are jealous. Its so sad and so cute how you envy him :D haha keep it up haters!! XD

YOU HATE HIM CUZ YOU AINT HIM!!! OHHHH ZINGER!!
  Jady @ 2012-10-20 121 up,7 down
So gay - like since he hit the Hollywood screen it seems he has been bearding himself from his true sexuality. Just follow the beard trail. And notice who also has his former beards and question THOSE men's sexuality!
  dave @ 2012-10-22 161 up,7 down
the only reason tom cruise hasn't come out of the closet is because he is locked in
  steve @ 2012-10-25 104 up,4 down
cults will do that to a person
  Gaydar @ 2012-11-28 160 up,9 down
Yes, he is a homophobe; and yes, he is a self-hating, closeted gay man. Check Nicole Kidman's bank account five years before they broke up. And Katie Holmes' in the same time frame. Scientology gets people to confess their gay history in manipulative counseling sessions, then they blackmail the closet cases and arrange marriages for them with women who are willing to keep their secret. Cruise is terrified people will find out. Travolta may finally come out one of these days, but Cruise is too self-hating.
  BA @ 2012-12-02 0 up,1 down
He is not gay. He just likes to get naked with other guys and go to bed with them !!! GAY !!!!!
  Jack @ 2012-12-11 149 up,8 down
Travolta actually hit on a male friend of mine at a gym in Los Angeles and wouldn't take no for an answer. This was back in '05. He definitely does not hide who he is. Why it took so long for stories to come out is beyond me.
Cruise is an interesting subject. My friend was a publicist in L.A. and he told me half of Hollywood is gay or bi and that includes the biggest names, names you would never believe.....like on the level of Deniro. Anyway, he told me that yes, TC is gay.
  Ted Browner @ 2012-12-12 109 up,7 down
Just because he enjoys better things in life (fighter jets, motorcycles and fast cars) does not make him straight - many gay men enjoy best things in life too. Regarding the homophobia comment on here, anyone who hates or dislikes gays is most likely gay themselves. So people shut up and stop hating because Tom Cruise is 100% on my gaydar.

  Chuck @ 2012-12-19 10 up,81 down
This site is gay stupid. There are people the gays find attractive and they will always think they are gay. What you think about a movie character will live for ever. I know Matt Damon will always be gay based on his character in the Talented Mr. Ripley. Robert De Niro will always be the taxi cab killer and Al Pacino will all be Scarface. I have not checked their gay-o-meter.

  Amberjade @ 2013-01-14 119 up,3 down
Rob Thomas' wife caught him in bed with her husband then all of a sudden her story changed, Tom sued someone for $15 million and he set out a bunch of 'feelers' to young actresses. Katie Holmes was like 4 or 5, I think Jessica Alba was #1. He went on like 2 dates and starts jumping on couches. Please! That was a media stunt. Any normal person after 2 dates would run for the hills if someone started jumping on couches after 2 dates.
  Max @ 2013-01-14 118 up,1 down
So Gay!!! Yeah he sues everyone who makes claim to his sexuality...Hmmm, me thinks he protests too much!!! Kind of reminds me of Liberace, he was always suing magazines that hinted that he was gay

I can't believe all of the naïveté here! Tom Cruise, like a great many of Hollywood men, is as queer as a football bat. Stevie Wonder can see he's gay. Mind you, for a while, he was better than most at hiding it, but then he started gettin super emotional and wierdee, just like a female who's not gettin her way, and once that happened, hindsight was 20/20 like realizing how gay Will Smith used to act on Fresh Prince. Get a fn clue people, HOLLYWOOD IS GAY! And I'm not jealous of a damn thing; I got money and a good life and I love some poontangle. And I'm not anti gay, some of my favorite rappers and actors are gay and I don't care. But you must realize how deep the gay rabbit hole goes. You folks talkin about people bein jealous or hatin are complete tools. Comin out of the closet has been highly frowned upon since Hollywood's gay beginnings. And that's what really grinds my gears!

Actually, being a homophobe is not an indication of a person being heterosexual. The worst kind of homophobia is 'internalized homophobia'--not being able to deal with one's own homosexuality. And not being able to accept oneself makes it more likely that a person will lash out at other people. Personally, I do not care either way. He is an angry man that needs to learn to accept that people will always believe whatever they want.

Lol at people thinking Tom Cruise is straight. He is as gay as they come. No ifs or buts about it! Didn't you wonder why Nicole Kidman was so blindsided by him asking for a divorce? It was a contract, and she was taken by surprise by his decision to end it. That's probably why Katie jumped before she was pushed. Smart woman.
  Vulture @ 2013-02-17 1 up,0 down
Tom Cruise is clearly a bisexual. His constant war with a particular image and trying way too hard to be 100% straight is ruining his ability to enjoy either sex.
  Dogher @ 2013-02-23 0 up,1 down
Until someone can actually prove he is gay, he is straight. Everyone who is gay, just wants to believe everyone else is gay so as to justify their feelings. Grow up and get real. Majority of the world is not gay as you wish they were and you just need to get over it. Stop pushing your views onto others. Be what you are and keep your own s#!t to yourself. It appears that the most prejudice views on homosexuality come from those that are gay. Stop trying to put your words along with your privates into everyone elses mouths. Worry about you, not what everyone thinks of you. He claims he's straight so why can't you accept someone for what they say...OOOHHHH that's right, because it's all about yourself and not about others, it's about what YOU want, what YOU feel, what YOU like, what YOU think. It is hard for you to let others be different or think differently because you are so driven by your own desires you let that cloud your judgment for others right and views. Stop whining and playing the little sissy, panzy gay individual and get some common sense. Be you, and let other be themselves, live and let live. Take a chill pill and stop making up a bunch of horses@!t that put others down to feel better about your SELF esteem. Stop getting your feelings hurt because you let them and then try to hurt others with your pathetic words and views, in other words, if you were born this way and it was not a choice, except it, deal with it, act like it and leave everyone else alone. Gay my ass. If it is not out there in public, by himself, accept him for who he says he is and not who you wish or want him to be.

His "biological" child (Suri) is NOT his; Katie was already preggers when she and Tom got together. So, it is false to claim that he has fathered a child.

Cruise picked up my mate on the set of eyes wide shut. True.
