Don’t Ask About His Sexual History

[Blind Gossip] This very famous actor’s sexuality has always been the subject of speculation. Well, we have a story today that will provide some insight into his real history!

Our actor has dozens of films under his belt, and might currently be described as an action star. At the time these events happened, he was dating an actress who would later become the star of a very successful TV series. The two – who are about the same age – dated throughout their teens and twenties when they were both starting out in Hollywood.

He was heavily into drinking and drugs back then, and used to fool around on this actress girlfriend… with both women and men. A lot of them!

One of the things that his hookups commented on was that he used to always fret about getting AIDS because he was having unprotected sex with men. Then he would get drunk and high again and throw precaution to the wind and have more unprotected sex with more men. During those years, he also used to worry aloud that he was gay but that he had to have a girlfriend because that’s what other people expected of him.

The actor and actress were together for many years, but they eventually broke up and moved on. She married another famous actor. They have children together and live in a large city.

Out actor is also a family man now (married with child/ren), and seems to have totally put his former life far behind him. However, it is interesting to note that while he sometimes talks about his history of substance abuse, he still avoids questions about his sexuality. We wonder if his wife has ever detected even a hint of his very prolific gay history during the course of their relationship.

      I also thought of this first as well. not sure now

      Can’t be. Melissa and Tim live in an itty bitty town in Michigan.

      • jasper

        I would suggest Melissa and previous husband Boxleitner, but pretty sure they had a ranch well outside a major city. This also seems to indicate she only had the one current husband, not two (the doctor? and Bruce).

    I think anyone who saw “Less Than Zero” had a suspicion about RDJ.

    • super sleuth

      My thoughts exactly.

    • mcwmomma

      lalefig, amen to that !!

    • Biglet

      So i watched some trailers and googled some stuff – but without watching the movie itself, can you please tell me what you mean about your RDJ suspicions? Is his character gay in the movie?
      (sorry about my ignorance!!)

      • MyCatLovesTV

        Less Than Zero is a real hard movie to watch that delves into the excess and depravity of a bunch of wealthy college aged kids of the 80’s. Drugs are everywhere and some handle it better than others. RDJ’s character, Julian, is a stone cold addict. He has been banished from his home because he upsets the household and has stolen everything he can get his hands on in order to get drugs. Julian is in deep, deep, deep to his dealer. The dealer pimps out Julian to gay men who attend the dealer’s parties. There is a scene where his best friend pulls him out of a room where RDJ is giving a guy or*l s*x. RDJ isn’t gay in the movie but he will do ANYTHING to get drugs and is forced to do ANYTHING because of his massive debt to his dealer. I watched that movie back in the 80’s and it really disturbed me. Especially since everybody knows that RDJ was a stone cold addict in real life for a long time.

    Obviously RDJ. Recovering addict. Married with kids. Ex-gf is Sarah Jessica Parker (starred in Sex and the City, married to Matthew Broderick with kids); they dated for years in the 80s. This is likely the answer to the Lainey blind from yesterday, too – so many of the details are similar.

    I love RDJ, but this would not surprise me. In the 80’s, he was out there. Perfectly cast in Less Than Zero. This fits him. But dude is awesome.

    Robert Downey Jr.
    He’s definitely very famous and in action films at the moment. He was with Sarah Jessica Parker for a few years back when they were both starting out and she married Matthew Broderick – they have kids and live in NY I think. Plus her successful show was Sex In The City. Everybody knows RDJ used to do lots of drugs… Now he’s married to Susan and has kids. It all fits.

      Hints: both age 49. Dated for 7 years starting in their late teens. She went on to star in Sex and the City, and famously lives in “large city” NYC. Married Matthew Broderick and they have 3 children.

      RDJ is widely known to be a great actor in all genres, but is currently best known for the Iron Man action movies. Married to Producer Susan Downey and they have a son. Wife “detecting” his sexuality – nod to his role as detective Sherlock Holmes in those action movies. He is famously a former addict as well.

    Clues:
    “currently be described as an action star” = Iron Man
    “very successful TV series” = Sex and the city
    “He was heavily into drinking and drugs back then” = Kind of obvious with Downey Jr.
    “She married another famous actor. They have children together and live in a large city” = In the large city is a reference to Sex and the City plus Parker and Broderick live in New York

    Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker. They dated from 1984-1991. She is now married with children to Matthew Broderick and lives in NYC. He is married with a son. Other clues: “action star”- Iron Man movies. “Detected”- played Sherlock Holmes.

    Is this Robert Downey, Jr?
    He did once date Sarah Jessica Parker who lives in a big city with her family and husband Matthew Broderik.

  • soapboxbetty

    I forgot to add, the picture is the most obvious clue that this is about RDJ; it’s just like the Iron Man movie posters.

  • AyeRightCara

    This is Robert Downey Jr!

    The actress is Sarah Jessica Parker who is now married to Matthew Broderick. She dated RDJ during the 80s when they were both young and starting out.

    RDJ is properly considered a action star these days (Iron Man) and his past issues with drink and drugs are well documented. He is married to Susan Levin now and they have a young son. Certainly there has been speculation about RDJ’s sexuality in the past, I think all the clues point to him.

    He stars in all the Iron Man movies and all Marvel movies, he’s know for being tony Stark. Sarah was doing Square Pegs and he was doing 80’s movies-lots of them. They dated-lots! Off and on in the 80’s. He also publicly was known for drinking and drugs.

    Sorry, I didn’t read the part about the actress having a job on tv and being married to a famous guy. It’s not Benjamin. So I will say Scott Foley. He is currently on “Scandal”. He used to date Jennifer Garner, who was on a tv very successful tv show at the time they were dating.
    The actress famous husband is Ben Affleck.

    Clues: he’s an action star, he’s a black belt (“under his belt”) long time gay rumors, substance abuse issues.

    RDJ and SJP dated from 1984 until 1991, they were both born in 1965, so same age, so they would’ve been teens when they started dating.

    She went on to star in SATC, a “very successful tv series”. She lives with Broderick/kids in NYC, a large city.
