SHOCKING INTERVIEW: Is Actor Leon (From The Five Heartbeats Trying To Come Out The Closet?????

: MediaTakeOut.com caught wind that actor Leon is going to be starring in a new film about downlow men called Cover. While giving a recent interview, the actor made some interesting statements. Now maybe he's just very understanding (and LAWD knows that we can use more of that). But the way he answers the questions makes us wonder if he may be talking about something a little deeper than just the character

Y'all can judge this however you want to. Here's what he said:

Let's just start talking about things, knowing who we are and letting women know who their men are sleeping with, if it's not just them. As long as you have a choice it doesn't matter, many women are still gonna be with men who sleep with men. That's not gonna change, they're still gonna be with their man. It happens, 71% of women find out and stay with their man, but at least they know and they've made that decision. That's the only thing that I've ever said with my opinion on it was that they have a right to know.

But on the other side of the coin you have a character like my character [Ryan Chambers, in Cover]. You say, "Be honest and open,"  [but] are you serious? I'm a famous guy and a ladies man, you think I'm gonna risk my career and family by telling you that I'm on the DL and I see the way you react? You won't even talk about homosexuality in the churches or at home, but I'm gonna sit there and tell you I'm one and have you treat me horribly and take everything I work for? There's the other side of the coin - you want men to be open and honest but you don't give them an open and honest arena to come out in.

MMmmmm Hmmmmmm....

I dont believe Leon is gay, but like most actors he has to be diplomatic about his sexuality.. If u sound homophobic u end up like Isaiah Washington or if u refuse to clarify ur labeled DL or Gay. Alot of actors are damned if they do, or vice versa. He played Little Richard and he did an excellent job, it means he has range and talent. Leon, is fine and I like him since he starred in Madonna's video.

I don't know. Some of these older men who you never see with women, makes me suspicious. I like Leon as an actor and if he's DL, he should stay there. I wouldn't date him and I wouldn't date any other DL man. There're too many men in this world to settle for that behavior. That movie will probably be a hit though. There are lots of DL men in other races too but J.L King blew the cover off of black men and rightfully so since black women were getting all kinds of diseases. Condom or not, I wouldn't want to have sex with a man whose private parts have been stuck up in something where it shouldn't anatomically be. No way.

In this case, its not a surprise...I honestly thought Leon came out a while ago....I have heard that he was gay for a long time... But that's neither here or there...If he is gay, then its his damn business. The brotha does have a point...Black folks want it both ways...A lot of black folks want to be self-righteous and homophobic on one hand, then want people to come out and be open on the other...If we want men and women to be open with their habits, then as a community we need to be more tolerant to create an environment where that can happen.

Clearly he was giving examples and also speaking about his character in the movie. He was basically saying yeah the woman has a right to know so that she can make her own choice but on the other hand you take a man like him who could lose everything then nine times out of ten he's not gonna say a word and it's true. Anyone could have said what Leon said and that doesnt make you gay at all!!!

I recently saw that movie and yes it was VERY deep. By the time it was over.. I was sounding like Flavor Flav "Wooooowwww". lol. It was crazy. It was an eye opener. Sometimes there are no obvious signs that your man is gay. That movie proved it. But MTO I think ya'll are reading a little too much into what he is saying (although he looked tooo dang comfortable in that shower scene with homeboy in the movie). But what he said in that interview is basically what the movie and what his character was about.

@dredog: The entire cast of The Temptations deserved an Emmy. Those men played their roles flawlessly. The first part had to be cut out due to Ruffin's children threatening to sue.

@ Stressonsmash: Don't trip. We know not every Black man is gay/bisexual/down low, etc. Don't worry about how to act. A real man is who he is - unapologetically. A real man won't hide who he is nor will he make excuses for how he is. This is for a gay man or a straight man. People are not lynching Black men. But let's be honest with ourselves, too. There are more Black men going to jail than any other race. Mare Black men on the Down Low, and lately more Black men coming out of the closet. Realistically, I think it has a lot to do with what happens in jail. And then the behavior is leaked into the public when former inmates bring it out. This has been happening increasingly over the past 30 or 40 years. It's human nature. What they have done to Blacks by caging us up in the projects when they wouldn't allow us to qualify for home mortgage loans, is the same thing they've done to Black men in jail. It's all genocide in devisive forms. Yes, this was constructed. But it is now our reality.


TravelAgent

That's why I can't agree when people say to be more accepting. No. I understand it. But knowing where it came from and where it will lead us, I can't accept it. If you want to fight something at the grassroots level, changing the system is where you begin. To find a cure for a disease, you need to discover where and how it orinated, and attack it at that level. Stop being so blind and so gullable!


STRESSONSMASH

Thanks for your response TravelAgent: I am assuming your blind & gullable comment was for everybody as in my posts, I always try to encourage the deconstruction of information. Find the source and where it came from and why it is there. Had I been blind and gullable, I would be (like some bloggers on this website) accepting of anything written on here (or any media source for that matter) as the stone cold truth. My comment on lynching was figurative not literal and my questions on how to act were rhetorical. ....I am sure you knew that....just checking! Please post more often.....It is a welcome break from the pablum I often sift through.


TravelAgent

Nah, Stessonsmash. The blind and gullable comment was more for everyone rather than you personally. I understand your frustration with feeling attacked as a man. It does happen. I just don't think it's the intention of most people when they talk about these men (who many presume to be straight). I usually don't post on the regular gossip topics. They are, more often than not, a little too foolish for my taste. I'm almost always on the political topics, though.

Because in the end she has to deal with the fact an the thought of her man sticking another man (sorry so graphic), will run through her head, diseases, Um HELLO. How could you really respect that. I love my REAL MAN, in every essence.

I agree travel, I really don't post on the forum, or gossip topics either, sometimes it is nonsense to me, unless I can't bite my tounge on a topic. I post on things that people everywhere NEED to hear. You are quite refreshing.

He still looks the same...lol Sometimes when a real actor gets immersed in a character, they begin to gather a better understanding about what it is that character has to endure. Leon's perspective about DL men before he even did the movie could have been totally different than what it is now. Hmmmm: Wesley Snipes- To Wong Foo Ving Rames- Pulp Fiction AND Holiday Heart Cuba Gooding Jr.-Boat Trip Will Smith-Six Degrees of Seperation Jamie Foxx-Wanda Martin Lawrence-Sheneneh Jenkins/ Edna "Mama" Payne Tyler Perry-Madea and as himself Lol Are they all gay too? Who knows? Who cares? I think they're comfortable with themselves and are doing what it is that they love to do which is acting and entertaining the people. It just seems to me Like Leon's learned alot because of the role just as any other actor does. And he's looking at it from both sides: the man and the woman.

MOTHER MTO WITH ALL DUE REGARDS YOUR OUT OF THE CLOSET GIBBERISH IS UNCONVINCING. I WOULD ATTEND NOT TO AGREE WITH THAT BECAUSE YOU SHOULD BE WELL AWARE THAT WHAT EVER YOU SAY ABOUT THE GAY COMMUNITY WILL MAKE OR BREAK YOUR POCKET. THIS IS PLAIN AND SIMPLE ON THE JOB INTERVIEW HE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE TO NEED EARN A LIVING. AS THE CASE MAY BE MTO DECTECTIVE WORK GETS A "F" HE WILL SAY WHATEVER IS NEEDED TO GET THOSE BILL PAID. FIND OUT WHO SLANGING A BIG FAT D_I_C_K WITH VEINS IS MORE IMPORTANT NOT A ON THE JOB INTERVIEW MTO YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME.

BY THE WAY LADIES IF YOU EVER HEAR ANOTHER MAN TELL YOUR MAN "ITS A LIL DUSTY IN HERE YOU LOOK LIKE YOU GOT SOMETHIN IN YOUR EYE, WANT ME TO BLOW IT OUT FOR YOU HE IS ON THE DOWN LOW. OR IF YOUR MAN IS TELLIN SOMEONE THAT HE IS ON THE DOWN LOW. I LEARN THAT FROM THE MOVIE "COVER"

And yes, jaming876, this affects many women as well. But I believe that the man is the head of everything (after God). That's why if you want to attack a group of people, you take away their men and thus their protective and defensive power. So we need to look to the men moreso than the women. Since men are natural leaders, once they are preserved, the women will follow suit. Sorry if my statement offends all the feminists and "girl power" indendependent women, but it is true. Just look around you and you can see the proof of my statement.

THIS MOVIE IS A MUST-SEE! EITHER YOU WILL START LOOKING AT YOUR MAN SIDEWAYS, OR YOU WILL STAY WITH WHO YOU'RE WITH (NEVER TO VENTURE AGAIN!!)

I am pretty sure I heard him make an 'IF' scenario. YOU MTO QUEENS ARE JUST SO DESPERATE TO HAVE ANOTHER BLACK ACTOR TO ADD TO YOUR RANKS THAT YOU TAKE ANY LITTLE THING ALLEGED TO BE 'NON-MACHO' AS GAY. SEE, THIS IS WHY STRAIGHT MEN OFTEN TAKE THE 'HOMOPHOBE' STANCE TOWARD GAY BLACK MEN AND THIS STANCE OFTEN LEADS TO VIOLENCE. THE TREND TO OUT HETEROSEXUAL AND HOMOSEXUAL MEN, WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE ARE ACTUALLY THE LATTER, WAS MADE FAMOUS BY THAT FAT QUEER PEREZ HILTON AND IS BECOMING A DANGEROUS CAREER AND LIFE ALTERING TREND. Its not cool or fair to the individual and their families. Let them handle that on their own time. For the record, I am straight, but I could care less what the next man does in his bedroom. Just keep it there. Stop advertising and forcing it on us as MTO, Perez Hilton and MTV have been consistently doing. Shame on you queers.

THE POINT I REALLY MEANT TO GET AT AND GOT LOST WAS HOW THESE IDIOTS THAT ARE SO EAGER TO BELIEVE ANYTHING IN PRINT THAT THEY HAVE BASICALLY DECIDED THAT THIS BROTHER IS GAY BASED ON MTO'S STUPID SPECULATION. USE. YOUR. OWN. BRAIN. A. HOLES.

I don't think this story does much to "out" him, but he has played Little Richard in a movie about him, and now this. I just think he "idenitifies". But on the real I don't there have been doors on this closet for quite some time.

tamika1412 said, UMM!!!! MTO You are late with this story. Leon is already out of the closet maybe not to hollywood but in his real life he is. He tried to pick up my gay best friend at his mother's restaurant Jezebels here in Manhattan.(Too bad it closed. They had the best fried catfish.) Anyhow, He wan't trying to hide it he did it right in front of everyone in our party.I mean it is what it is. Actually Michael Wright's (Eddy Kane in the Five Heartbeats)mother owns Jezebels. They look a lot alike. Maybe it was Michael Wright trying to pick up your gay friend.

Leon is not gay. He is a phenomenal actor who gave thought to his opinion. An opinion most people of color don't want to read or hear come from a straight Black man.

Lets face it, MOST (NOT ALL) but MOST entertainers of film and music ARE GAY! So why is this a shocker? I personally like Leon as an actor, but I have always said that if he ever came out, I would not be surprised. As Robert Downey jr's character said in Tropic Thunder: "It's Hollywood, sooner or later EVERYONE turns gay". If he does come out PLEASE don't harass him, but lets give him the same love and support.

this movie is old not to mention how blindly the people are lead into believing that this man is gay because of his opinion... People wake up stop being lead by leading articles such as this
