Gay Rumors In Hollywood: 16 Celebrities Who Have Faced Reports About Their Sexuality (PHOTOS)

Hugh Jackman's singing and dancing talents, not to mention his self-professed love of Broadway showtunes, have led many in Hollywood to speculate about the married "X-Men" hunk's real-life sexuality.

Earlier this week, however, Jackman's wife Deborra-Lee Furness simply laughed off the rumors, telling the New York Post, "It's kind of tragic that these people have nothing better to do than to gossip about people they don't know."

Jackman needn't fret too much, however, as they say you've only really made it in Hollywood once the gay rumors start. Indeed, many Tinseltown's A-listers, from George Clooney to Oprah Winfrey to the button-handsome stars of "Gossip Girl," have been dogged for years by reports they've got more hiding in their closets than just designer labels.
