Leonardo DiCaprio and Clint Eastwood
are mostly in favor of gay marriage.
DiCaprio stars as FBI Director J. Edgar
Hoover in the upcoming Eastwood-directed J. Edgar.
The film will open the 25th
edition of the AFI Festival in Hollywood, California on November 3
and will open nationwide six days later.
In the film, Armie Hammer, the
25-year-old co-star of last year's The Social Network, plays
Clyde Tolson, Hoover's co-worker and life-long confidant.
But whether Hoover and Tolson were
romantically involved, DiCaprio and Eastwood say in the October issue
of men's fashion glossy GQ,
is less certain.
“They were inseparable pals,”
Eastwood said. “Now, whether he was gay or not is gonna be for the
audience to interpret. It could have been just a great love story
between two guys. Or it could have been a great love story that was
also a sexual story.”
J. Edgar is “not a movie about
two gay guys,” he said.
Eastwood added that he's OK with gay
marriage: “These people who are making a big deal about gay
marriage? I don't give a fuck about who wants to get married to
anybody else! Why not?! We're making a big deal out of things we
shouldn't be making a deal out of. … Just give everybody the chance
to have the life they want.”
DiCaprio agreed: “That's the most
infuriating thing – watching these people focus on these things.
Meanwhile, there's the onset of global warming and these incredibly
scary and menacing things with the future of our economy.”
