Of course there's the gay/straight bearding practice! Generally, bearding, or "it was a blind date, we met thru a friend(publicist)," meme happens when talent agencies like CAA, WME, etc.
put people together to up someone's profile or improve their image.
Latifah denied being gay years ago, but doesn't do that anymore.
She doesn't use beards, either, so I'd say that makes her slightly better than Revolta[quote]But is Anderson Cooper technically in the closet?
I love Latifah; she can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. I wasn't even sure if he was gay before then (it could have just been wishful thinking), but that is the fakest relationship in the history of fake relationships.
