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.”

Not nauðsynlegt to tell the fréttir of him here

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.

I’m feeling the gay vibe here , and for me that’s a really good thing! go ben! come out of the closet it’s time!

Love Ben so much, hope that Southland gets renewed.
Ben’s poor mom! She wants the grandchildren!!

Aww…I’m free tomorrow.

i can’t believe he is 32 already

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.

is it true he dated Mischa Barton at one point ?

@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.

@emy: According to his fans, those are not his girlfriends.

He’s also been spotted with brunettes

Oh my god, he’s so hot…

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
