There have been discussions about whether or not Tom Selleck is gay. I’ll talk about the rumor in this blog post.
If you’re like most people, you’ve probably wondered if Tom Selleck is gay at some point. Like several well-known actors. Tom Selleck has been there and done that. Read on to find out what’s going on.
Tom Selleck’s Personal Life
Tom Selleck is known for being an actor. He was born in Detroit, Michigan, on January 29, 1947, making him an Aquarius like me. Robert Selleck and Martha Jagger, his parents, were both from the working class. Tom Selleck didn’t grow up acting like many other Hollywood stars. He did sports. On the basketball court, Tom played well.
He was such a good basketball player that the University of Southern California gave him the scholarship to play basketball there. Tom did a lot of different things while he was at that school. One of them was modeling and acting. Tom sported to make extra money to pay for his college. He liked acting and did it for fun. His drama teacher pushed him to work, and since then, Tom has become a big deal.
Tom Selleck’s Career
Tom Selleck didn’t start acting until he was an adult, which is different from many other actors. “The Dating Game” was one of the first times he was seen on TV. The show was about white men competing for a pretty white woman. Yes, I’m saying it just like it was. Imagine “The Bachelor,” but with a lot more cheese.
One of Tom Selleck’s most famous roles was in the movie Three Men and a Baby, about three bachelors taking care of a baby. Tom’s career peaked when he played the main character, Thomas Magnum, on the TV show Magnum, P.I. The show was about the private investigator Thomas and his life. People looked forward to watching it after work or school in the 1980s. The show was so popular that he won an Emmy Award for it. In 2018, Magnum PI got a new start with a whole new cast. Tom was a big deal in the eyes of most people. He’s decent-looking to me.
Tom Selleck’s Lawsuit
In 1991, an article called “Gay Stars Stops Traffic” in a supermarket tabloid called “The Globe” made it sound like Tom was gay. I could only imagine how angry Tom would have been, which he had every right to feel. Tom and his team asked to take down the story.
The Globe’s answer was a turn. So, Tom Selleck sued them and got a check for $20 million. He said the rumor was hurting his reputation and his family. “When The Globe printed the gay story, I had made a promise to my wife, who had just given birth to my daughter. I have a (step)son who is 29 years old. This tabloid made it sound like I was living two lives. It made other people feel bad, and that’s where I draw the line.” Even so, some gay rights activists criticized him for being homophobic.
