Ben McKenzie: Not Looking Forward to Valentine's Day

Ben McKenzie: Not Looking Forward to Valentine's Day

Ben McKenzie chats with Ellen DeGeneres while making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Monday (February 14).

The 32-year-old actor was asked about his Valentine’s Day plans, but didn’t seem too excited for the big day!

“I knew you were going to get to this. I’m not married,” Ben said. “This is really going to cheer me up. I’m not married. Recently out of a relationship.”

Ben shared that his mom has given up on him getting married anytime soon.

“She’s given up on me. She’s moved on to my two younger brothers who are both married,” he said. “They’re more likely to give her grandkids at this point which is really the point of the whole exercise. I mean, she cares about me, she’s my mother. But it’s really about grandkids so she just moves on to them.”

    If only Southland had a longer season, 10 episodes is just not enough.
    When you think trash like CSI Miami get 24 episodes per season, I just don’t understand it.

    Because of SOuthland he’s gotten more respect as an actor. Here’s hoping he gets more chances to showcase his talent in the future

    @fabri: Yeah, sorry dude, but Ben just got out of a relationship with Arielle Kebbel a year or two a go, dated Amanda Loncar, Emily VanCamp, and other women. I’ve seen candid pics of him kissing girls. I’m about 99.9% sure he’s not gay.

    Lily Says:

    is it true he dated Mischa Barton at one point ?

  23. 23
    Mary Says:

    @Lily: I don’t think so and if he did, it was only for a very short time during early S1 of The OC. By some point during S1, Mischa was dating Brandon Davis and by S2 I’m pretty sure Ben was dating Emily VanCamp.

    @Jackie: Still, that doesn’t mean he’s straight (not gay). It was just a phase. People come out after they’re married.

    My strong and always very correct gaydar tells me Ben is gay. He has also never dated or been seen out with girls and what guy that handsome and built is never going to go out with women?? Of course, we gay guys who worship and adore his cute face, smile, beautiful, soulful eyes don’t mind one little bit! What a dreamboat! lol

    Ben McKenzie is gay because i did research on him through a search engine and i would like to get him in bed with me.He really is cute but i do not like his TUFF GUY IMAGE that turns me off. I watched him on OC. Again in that show he had to come off with his TUFF GUY IMAGE. He thinks he can beat up any guy, yeah right. I think if he would just drop that TUFF GUY IMAGE he would get more parts in movies.I know that bens TUFF GUY IMAGE has got to turn other people off also.
