Marc Cherry Among 50 Most Powerful Gay Men In Hollywood
Popular US gay magazine "Out" has listed "Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry among the 50 most powerful gay men and women in Hollywood in its special May issue including a story about influential homosexuals such as Jodie Foster and Anderson Cooper and their "Glass Closet".
Openly gay-mogul David Geffen tops the list that also includes talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, The View co-host Rosie O’Donnell, financial guru Suze Orman, Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner, film producer Scott Rudin, Oprah designer Nate Berkus, and film director Bryan Singer.
The article states that Jodies Foster, 44, who has been in a relationship with Cydney Bernard since they met on the set of 1993’s "Sommersby" and raises two sons Charles, 8, and Kit, 5 with her is one of the Hollywood celebrities who lives in what the magazine refers to as "The Glass Closet."
A perfect fit for many Hollywood celebrities today, 'the glass closet' allows gay stars to live fairly open lives without ever confirming their sexuality in any of the interviews. For this reason, many women still have a crush on CNN host Anderson Cooper believing he is straight, and gay men think he is out.
Other gay TV stars mentioned in the cover story include David Hyde Pierce ("Frasier",) Clay Aiken ("American Idol",) and Sean Hayes ("Will & Grace".) The magazine urges the celebrities to come out.
