    Can’t believe how 2 hot guys like that can be gay… So sad!

  • sid

    aaaahhhh!!!! I LOVE THEM

  • May

    I hate it when they still try to lie to the world. It’s not a shame thing to do to come out, while the lies make me not want to follow them anymore!

  • Isabel

    @May: They don’t owe you or anyone else anything, though. If you don’t wish to follow them, that’s you’re prerogative but not having your support doesn’t effect their lives.

  • iWrite

    Remain calm. Don’t feed into this hype. First, I can’t believe the rumors still persist, even after both said they are not. Since when did it become weird that celebrities enjoy their privacy? Many celebs do! Oh, and since when can’t two men be best friends, or even friends? I know plenty of men that are straight and are just best friends. Secondly, that picture is a bad Photoshop job. Not only is it blurry (and not because of the camera), the edging is off and the background is muddy. Also, they may be sitting, but not together. The posture is off, not to mention the “identical” facial expressions. Oh, and let’s not forget Lee’s hair is longer than what you see in the photo, including his facial hair and this picture was “after” his recent appearance on POPWATCH (http://popwatch.ew.com/2014/08/01/lee-pace-guardians-galaxy-interview/)

  • norah

    May, you’re nobody to them and to the world.

  • Ugiughfivhj

    You’re an idiot iWrite. Let me guess, you also thought Bomer was straight. Dumbass.

  • noel

    If they’re together, more power to them. What a hot couple!

  • See

    If you think two men sitting on a bench together must be gay then you are very anti-social and sad. Get some friends and discover what’s normal.

  • truth

    @iWrite:
    When did they say they are not gay? Don’t make up lies. They’re together and in a very happy relationship. Get over it and be happy for them

  • Truth

    @See:
    I can’t believe people can be so gullible. They’ve been together for more than two years.

  • See

    @Truth:

    They are as much of a couple as Ian McKellen and Orlando Bloom or Viggo Mortensen and Orlando Bloom or Elijah Wood and Orlando Bloom., etc. (you get the reference)

    It’s amazing how these women obsessed with making men gay and fantasizing about them having sex can become their reality. Sadly, some gullible people online believe them too. I feel really sorry for you.

  • Truth

    @See:
    I can’t believe YOU are so gullible. I don’t fantasize, i just face reality, which you don’t. Armitage is gay and in a happy relationship with lee. It’s a fact, not a fantasy.
    And I also feel very sorry for people who are really very, very gullible like you. Come back to the real world, hon.

  • Bragen

    Anyone who thinks they are gay must be a billy no mates.

  • Truth

    @Bragen:
    And you must be someone who lives in a fantasy world if you think they’re straight.

  • May

    @Isabel: Yeah, you keep telling yourself that.
    @norah: Actors’ career base on fans! Lies will never do you good.

  • See

    @Truth:

    Oh hun (or should I say “Bob”), everything has an explanation but neither of these men owe it to you or anyone else because it’s not your business. Live your own life and stop spreading rumors about others.

  • Truth

    @See:
    These are not rumours, these are facts. Get over it!

  • Felicia

    Didn’t Ian mckellan pretty much out them?

  • Elf Princess

    So what if they ARE gay being gay is normal. I hope they are gay and then all you annoying little fan girls can just shut up for once! I love Lee Pace and just like you, would love to date him but get real what chance do any of us have? Let’s just be happy that Lee is happy and that Richard is happy!!!

  • Sam

    Oh, it’s old-timers week in rumor-mongering. Hellooo, Bob (or is it Mark?) Anywhere you went on the internet a couple of years ago and googled about Armitage, sooner or later you’d come across Bob promoting this fantasy.
    In fact this stuff is always made up by annoying little fangirls just like the ones Elf Princess is trashing.
    And, May, if you are the may from topix, shame on you! Demanding gay people come out is entitlement of the worst kind, and a form of homophobia. And demanding those aren’t gay come out is stupidity of the worst kind. Either way, strangers owe you NOTHING about their personal lives.

  • Anon

    Lee Pace is gorgeous and I think he’s a terrific actor. He was fantastic in Guardians of the Galaxy. Why do some people think he’s gay?

  • Anon1

    I think they are a couple, but the don’t seem very happy to be there lol

  • demented

    It’s kinda funny how the little fangirls are swarming everywhere, preaching the gospel of “these two are SO a couple and they’re hawt!” I guess they think if they say it enough it will come true.
    Ever heard of tinhats? they were the ones insisting that Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan were not only gay, but a devoted and loving couple, and it turned out out that it was not true, but neither were any of the other ships (like “Viggorli”). Just google “tinhat” and “domlijah” and you’ll find out how INSANE they could be. Or just visit tumblr, where you can find plenty of crazy fangirls who freak and starts screaming at you if you suggest Armitage or Pace is or has ever been attracted to an icky woman (even if they’re repeatedly caught staring at boobs)
    Now it’s gotten soooo bad that they cannot even hang out on a park bench (is their body language “lovers forced to be apart for months and months with a single day in the same city” or “dudes hanging out?”) without people saying “yup, they MUST be gay and a couple. It’s proof.” Because no people who are just friends hang out in ugly clothes.
    Of course, “Truth” (or “Bob”) has been promoting this ship basically ever since filming, insisting that both men are 100% and totally in love with absolutely NO evidence. I recognize his crazy writing style.

  • demented

    @Anon:

    There was an interview that came out last year where Ian McKellen IDed him as one of the gay cast members, but the interview is not very reliable. For some reason NO ONE saw it for a whole year (yeah, it’s likely NOBODY saw this incendiery topic for a whole year when they have a big movie out), and previous quotations indicated that someone actually changed the quote. There is an earlier version of the quote where McKellen just mentions a number, and then suddenly it had a bunch of names.
    It’s also suspect because I cannot remember another instance of Mr. McKellen outing another living person, EVER.
    Otherwise it’s just hearsay. It might be that Lee Pace is gay, or he might be bisexual, or he might be pansexual, or even asexual. Same w/ Richard Armitage.
    It is true that Pace dated another man for a few years. A few years before THAT, he dated a woman at Juilliard. So it’s anyone’s guess what he is, but only his business.

    @demented:

    I agree with you a poto is not a proof but LP was in London in June / July for the crucible. There’ s a lot of pics. So we could guess they are a couple. Gay, straight, bi, I wish them happiness

  • Nancy

    Lee Pace is gorgeous and a terrific actor.

  • demented

    @Anon1:

    Yes, he went to London and attended the play… along with Orlando Bloom and Ian McKellen.

  • Truth

    @demented:
    Why is it so hard for certain fans to accept they are gay and in a happy relationship is beyond me.

  • Anon1

    @demented:

    Yes but not just once. I was one of those who thought RA wasn’t gay. But I don’t care, if they are happy together

  • Lunatic

    @May:

    Why do you say they are lying?

    They don’t have to declare tey are gay or that they are not.

    They owe you nothing.

  • demented

    @Anon1:
    Why would you NOT go more than once when you traveled to another country?

    @Truth:
    Because I know who you are and I have seen what you do online to promote your fantasy, and have done since filming was going on.

  • demented

    I would also like to add that in addition to the tinhatting, it really bothers me that there is so much bi erasure. So many people just using the binary sexuality without including the whole spectrum in between.

  • Anon1

    @demented: you’re right he would, but as I said, they spend lots of time together. although it is not known if they are together, it looks like. When RA is in NY, the person with whom he spends time is LP. We have no evidence either on one side or the other, but it is similar to a relationship

  • Truth

    @demented:
    It’s not a fantasy, it’s the … truth (lol). It’s bigot and stubborn people like you who prevent them from coming out. Get over it and be happy for them.

  • Mitch

    I’m sure that the rumors don’t bother them even if they aren’t true. I hope they are a couple.

  • Anon1

    @demented : sorry but LP is in London and was senn yesterday in the audience for The Crucible

  • alien10

    So, the biggest LP fan completely crazy about him meets LP by chance… Is it possible that she s just been dreaming?? I’m waiting for more comments to come

  • Anon1

    @alien10: Are you talking about the photo or the tweet? Bc I have doubts about the tweet

  • alien10

    I talk about the Person who “saw” him. Her blog is full with photos of Lee. By the way he has not been seen by anybody just by her.
    He was there during the break and no one spotted him? Was he a ghost just visible to her? Who were his seat neighbors? Michael Jackson and Elvis?

  • 100 nos

    I don”t believe a word of this bs either.

  • Anon1

    @alien10: Yes 1st I was surprised and then I had doubts bc only those 2 girls saw him and nobody spotted him

  • Ami

    Only one person tweeted that she saw him on press night (we know he was there, because some cast-mates took a photo with him). Until then nobody even mentioned that he was also on 27 June. Nobody ever said that they saw him the next day after the press night and nobody would know he was there, if the mother of Richard’s boy co-star didn’t post a picture a month later. And now suddenly everyone’s doubting?

  • alien10

    There were photos right away. He was mentioned by several blogs. The Girl is obsessed with LP, watch it. This is getting scary.

  • Ami

    Right away? Wrong. There was only one pic from press-night (of his back). Pic from after party came only on GOTG premiere. There is no photo from 27 June and nobody mentioned he was there that day until the press night. Nobody said he was there on the next day as well, until the mother of Richard’s boy co-star posted a pic a month later. I’m not saying that this recent sighting is definitely true, but the argument “only two girls saw him” is not a proof that it’s a lie.

  • 100 nos

    I agree. She s apparently obsessed with Lee Pace. Probably just Attention seeking…

  • Anon1

    @Ami: sorry but there was tweets about LP & RA in southbank the day of the gay pride (ie 28/06/14)

  • 100 nos

    The Internet has a lot of Patience. He was not on the premiere of ITS…

  • Anon1

    @100 nos: you’re right and I agree. So do you think they are a couple and RA is gay?

  • Ami

    @Anon1: Ok, sorry, I missed them. But even so, they were not about Lee attending a play.
