Leonardo DiCaprio Isn’t Sure If J. Edgar Hoover Was Gay
“What we’re saying is that [J. Edgar Hoover] definitely had a relationship with [Clyde] Tolson that lasted for nearly 50 years. Neither of them married. They lived close to one another. They worked together every day. They vacationed together. And there was rumored to be more. There are definite insinuations of—well, I’m not going to get into where it goes, but … If I were a betting man, I actually don’t know what I would bet.”
—Leonardo DiCaprio talks to GQ magazine about his new movie “J. Edgar,” directed by Clint Eastwood. But even though DiCaprio spent months playing the infamous director of the FBI, who wore dresses to parties and supposedly had a relationship with the FBI’s associate director, Leo says he isn’t sure in the end if Hoover was gay. After the jump, hear what Eastwood thinks.
“It’s not a movie about two gay guys. It’s a movie about how this guy manipulated everybody around him and managed to stay on through nine presidents. I mean, I don’t give a crap if he was gay or not.”
On a complete side note, how hot is it that Leo is building a card castle in this photo? So talented.
