Jane Lynch: Julia Roberts is Gay (Just Kidding!)

Jane Lynch: Julia Roberts is Gay (Just Kidding!)

Ellen DeGeneres gifts guest Jane Lynch with a track suit reading “The Other One” on Wednesday (September 15)’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Jane and Ellen had a conversation about coming out to the world. Check it:

“You say that but there are a lot of people that are still in the business that are scared to death to do that,” Ellen said. “They would think that it would hurt their career. And, your career is bigger than ever and it hasn’t hurt you at all.”

Jane responded, “And, not just because you’re sitting with me but that’s because of people like you. You were at the height of your fame and you came out. And that just blazed a trail for me. It really did. It made it so much easier for me what you did.” Aww!

Added Jane, ” Let me make another point…this isn’t great news, it’s because I’m a character actor I think. If Julia Roberts were gay I think it would be harder. She’s an ingĂ©nue. You want to project your hopes and dreams for love… like Brad Pitt.

“So you’re saying Julia Roberts is gay?” asked Ellen.

Joked Jane, “That’s what I’m saying. Right here on this show. (laughs) She won’t admit it. I’m here to tell you she’s gay. You’re welcome Julia. It’s a push she needed and now she can join us.” Hah!

FYI: Jane is wearing a J. Gerard Design Studio black blouse with pleather applique.

    Ha! I love that Julia Roberts is still sort of seen as this icon. It’s funny because Jane and Julia know each other, Julia’s hung around the Glee set quite a few times with Ryan Murphy so I’m sure she’d find this hilarious.

    I’m glad to see both Jane and Ellen so successful

    I always thought Jake Gyllenhaal is gay or at the least bi.

  • missy

    Everyone in Hollyweird is perverted, they’re all gay.

    #4, *roll eyes* How is it that so many straight people assume other people are “perverted”, because they are gay? I’m a straight woman, and yet I would never assume that those two words go hand-in-hand. Perverted is someone who intentionally hurts someone else sexually, or through lascivious behavior. Being attracted to people of the same sex is not that by any stretch.

    I think both of these ladies should be commended for being honest and true to themselves and those they love. In spite of the fact that people like you twist it into something that it’s not.

    Replace “Julia Roberts” with “Dianna Agron”

    Love Jane Lynch. So funny. And Ellen has helped SO many people – great that Jane thanked her! Can’t wait for Sue Sylvester to return next week!

    N – I agree with you totally and it’s a shame these days that people still can’t get their tiny minds around the fact that if somebody is different from them, it doesn’t mean they are evil.
    Too bad being gay still makes the news. Peace to all out there.
