Mean Girls, Jonathan Bennett, A.K.A. Aaron Samuels, is gay! The star of this cult classic film got a lot of female attention after Mean Girls came out. Turns out, Johnny boy wasn’t even into it!
He was previously rumored to have been in a relationship with Matt Dallas, who you read about above.
Julianne Hough may have accidentally outed Bennett while the two were filming for Dancing With The Stars back in 2014. Hough was asked whether there was any romantic interest between her and Bennett, and she responded that the actor was gay. Even though it is pretty much known, Bennett has yet to make any sort of public announcement about his sexuality.
Bennett is currently the host of Cake Wars on The FOOD Network which kicked off in April. “You have to just have some knowledge of making cupcakes. Cupcakes are easy,” he said, noting that the contestants are what really make the show. “They’re good ones. I call it Dancing With The Stars in the kitchen with cupcakes.”
Actress Ellen Page has played many straight, female characters in her past. She is probably most known for her breakout role in Juno. But Page has not been shy about sharing her homosexuality and support for the LGBT community. She is very much an advocate for LGBT rights.
Page believes that she has not been cast for as many straight roles since she came out openly as a lesbian.
“Zachary Quinto [of Star Trek fame] is out, and he stars in one of the biggest blockbuster franchises,” the 28-year-old actor told Elle magazine. “I have four projects coming up all gay roles. People ask if I’m concerned about getting pigeonholed. No one asks: A?Ai??A?Ellen, you’ve done seven straight roles in a row shouldn’t you shake it up and do something queer?'”
She has also publicly claimed that homophobia is just as prevalent of an issue in Hollywood as racism still is today.
