Joel McHale Doesn’t Mind If You Think He’s Gay

You might know Joel McHale from The Soup or Community, and you might also think he’s gay. Is he? Nah, but he doesn’t mind if you assumed otherwise! In a new interview with The Advocate, Joel basically said straight dudes who have an issue with being mistaken for gay dudes are pretty stupid, and I have to agree! Anyone confident in themselves doesn’t care what anyone else thinks of them – especially if “gay” is the thought, since you’re basically saying it’s an insult – so everyone shut up.

You once told The Advocate that some people believe you are gay because you dress so well.
Oh, I still see that on Twitter every day. It’s flattering. I always find it really weird when guys flip out over someone thinking they might be gay. If a guy gets offended by that, there’s something’s wrong with him. I take it as a compliment.

Do you have a dude crush?
Ooh, boy, I have so many. Josh Gad. Brian Williams. Patrick Stewart. Nathan Fillion. Kobe Bryant. Chaz Bono.

OK, now you’re just saying names.
Maybe. I’m not picky.

Ha! Good for Joel McHale. The Soup still cracks me up on a… bi-annual basis, which is about as often as I remember to watch it. Community, on the other hand, is just really not my thing.
