    I just watched Giant. I watched it just as I had watched Cat on a Hot Tin Roof streaming on my Netflix. I'd never seen a movie that had starred James in it until now. I've only heard rumor of him being gay but was he really?

    Bisexual/Experimental. He rolled with Marlon Brando icon_cool.gif

    I believe his first experiment with a man was with a Director for a movie or something like that.

    I'm a big James Dean fan. The casting couch theory is not entirely correct, I think. Apparently he and his friend (i think his name was William Bast) experimented in college , and Dean worshipped Marlon Brando (according to Brando, at least).

    Giant is an awesome movie! So epic!

    No, you didn't? icon_eek.gif Haha, don't worry it is a VERY long movie...but if you can stay awake for the whole thing - or at least 3/4 of it, lol - you'll find that it's totally worth it. Many movies today sadly lack the depth and atmosphere found in Giant.

    He was not gay may have dabbled in college as most guys do however he was not gay however i think he was maybe pan sexual but as he was molested as a boy by a priest i think i had trouble coming to terms with his life poor guy gone too soon

    I don't think most guys dabble with gay sex in college. And the whole priest molestation theory isn't backed by any sound evidence other than the fact that James Dean had a close bond with that priest - i think such a theory jumps to unhealthy assumptions and stereotypes. Also, he was meant to have done a lot more "experimentation" outside of college. I don't know if he was straight, gay, bi or whatever...my guess is that he was bi, but that's probably all any of us can really do: guess.

    If that's true then it's very sad to hear...poor guy. Though i become suspicious of journalists who publish "off the record" quotes from deceased celebrities who obviously aren't able to defend or rebuke their claims.

    It's not Elizabeth Taylor's integrity i'm calling into question, but rather the reporter's. I don't think times have changed that drastically unfortunately. While there's probably more awareness of child abuse in churches there are still many cases of abuse that go unreported and unprosecuted. Maybe you're right and i'm wrong...i don't know; it doesn't really matter. Peace out icon_wink.gif

    True...But I don't he really cares if we talk about him o not...Maybe he's flattered in the afterlife that guys think he was good enough to be bi/gay icon_smile.gif
