Call Joel McHale Gay and He’ll Probably Thank You for It
Joel McHale has been dealing with rumors that he’s gay, but he really couldn’t care less. Instead, ‘The Soup’ host and ‘Community’ star — who’s been married to a woman since 1996 — is hugely flattered.
“I always find it really weird when guys flip out over someone thinking they might be gay,” the gregarious McHale told The Advocate. “If a guy gets offended by that, there’s something’s wrong with him. I take it as a compliment.”
Please place your slow claps here.
“‘Community’ needs all the [ratings] help it can get, so thank God for our gay fans,” he said. “Our young gay fans especially are the loudest and most Internet-savvy. That also speaks to the quality of our show, which I think is highly intelligent.”
McHale continued to joke in the interview, saying gay men often flirt with him by holding a boom box over their heads (a la ‘Say Anything’) and that the best way to deal with this is a “quick, courteous blow job.”
His own man crushes include Brian Williams, Patrick Stewart, Nathan Fillion, Kobe Bryant and Chaz Bono. So pretty much something for everyone.
