    Ben Whishaw: I Was Afraid to Come Out for a Long Time

    'I had a lot of fear in doing it for a long time... I’m not sure I know why.' Photo: Strand Releasing British actor Ben Whishaw discussed his coming out in a poignant interview with the UK’s Sunday Times [paywall]. This engagement with the press is notable, as the  Cloud Atlas actor has been up until now notoriously cagey about his sexuality.  Whishaw   opened up about his sexuality three years ago in Out , but then retreated and did not speak openly

  • Ben Whishaw Comes Out (Again)

    Ben Whishaw Comes Out (Again)

    The actor has married his partner in a civil ceremony. In 2011, Out interviewed Ben Whishaw during his run in the Off-Broadway production of The Pride , in which he played a gay man. Although it seemed fairly clear that Whishaw was gay himself, he wouldn't go on the record directly. The actor has since gone on to star in Skyfall and Cloud Atlas (also playing a gay, or bisexual, man). Now, two years later, he's confirmed that he married his husband, composer Mark Bradshaw, a year

  • Ben Whishaw: Mysterious Skin

    Ben Whishaw: Mysterious Skin

    Hunched over a table in the bar of London's Royal Court Theatre, Ben Whishaw looks like a small woodland animal. As if scanning for predators, his eager eyes dart around the room surveying the crowd as he breaks a banana into pieces and pops it into his mouth. He fidgets and squirms in his seat as if flea-infested, his oversize sweater almost drowning his wiry frame in wool. He is not typical leading-man material. Yet, however improbable, that is exactly what Whishaw has become, thanks to a series of finely wrought performances that began at the youthful age of 23 when he

    New York Magazine Thinks Ben Whishaw Is Straight -- But Is He?

    In a conversation titled "Dancy and Whishaw, Heterosexual British Actors, Sometimes Hug," in the latest issue of New York Magazine , Ben Whishaw and his co-star Hugh Dancy are asked, "You're both straight. Did you have any hesitations about taking explicit gay roles?" While this might seem like a typical enough way to start an interview with two young, handsome actors starring in The Pride , now playing at NYC's Lucille Lortel Theatre, about the contrasting experiences of gay men in 1958 and 2008, there's one small

    The latest film has the sexy Bond actor in at least one bathing suit. And now with more Ben Whishaw! For a while there it looked like there might not be another James Bond film, and we were gonna miss seeing  Daniel Craig as 007. But now the issues have been worked out, and Craig is back in   Skyfall . He's looking pretty debonair (and hot) in the trailer that's just been released. And so is Ben Whishaw , now that we're thinking about it. WARNING: You might be super creeped out seeing

Courtesy of BBC The fact that networks scheduled three retro shows—"PanAm," "The Hour," "The Playboy Club"—to premiere during the serious lapse of "Mad Men" screentime this summer could have people skittish over at AMC.

    Susan Sarandon's Body Dysmorphia

    The star loses herself—literally—in her role for 'Cloud Atlas.' Can I just start off, somewhat tangentially, by saying that Susan Sarandon, who is 65 years old, looks amazing for her age? Great, because I just did, and she does. I mean, maybe I'm naive, but I don't even think she's had work done, or, if she has, it's the unbelievably expensive kind that is as undetectable as the difference between a $50 and $60 bottle of wine (but not a $5 and $10 bottle of wine, which is
