Dustin Lance Black Angry About Gay Question for Taylor Lautner


Dustin Lance Black


The 'Milk' writer is unhappy that a magazine writer had asked Lautner whether Black made a pass at him during dinner.

Taylor Lautner has declared in an interview with GQ Australia that he's straight after rumors spread that he swings both ways, but the problem doesn't lie in his answer. Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black has slammed the magazine for asking the "Twilight" actor such question to find out whether Lautner is gay or not.

Lautner was asked whether Black and fellow gay director Gus Van Sant had made a pass at him when they had dinner together at a restaurant last summer. The actor replied, "No, definitely not. I think they know I'm straight. But they're great guys. They're a lot of fun."

Black took this issue more seriously, writing in his new blog, "Really Mr. GQ writer? I'm curious, will you be asking all of the handsome actors I've ever had the privilege of working with or meeting if I made passes at them as well?" He continued, "I'd love to be there when you ask Sean Penn [Lead actor in Black's 'Milk'] that same question. Or, Mr. GQ writer, were you projecting your own unprofessional desires onto me and Gus?"

"Above and beyond this clear attack on my character, I'm shocked that GQ would allow their writer to lean on the scurrilous, outdated stereotype that gay men are by nature sexual predators. I mean, would you have asked this same question if it were Diablo Cody and Kathryn Bigelow at dinner with Mr. Lautner?"

On the last note, he added, "Leaning on lies, myths and stereotypes about gay people is hateful, harmful and outdated. It's not the 1950s anymore GQ, it's 2011 and it's time to grow up." GQ Australia has not responded.

    "I hope Zac Efron is presenting my category. I saw him at a party Friday night and he is so adorable, and if he presents my category and I win, I will have an excuse to hug him. You know how the winner always hugs the person who presents the award? I want that." - Dustin Lance Black at the Academy Awards a few years ago. This guy is lame and "J. Edgar" was horrible.

    They shouldn't ask people if they're gay. It's a very personal question, whether it's true or not. They especially shouldn't ask young people this question. People should ben entitled to a certain amount of privacy, even famous people.

    No you grow Up.... What's wrong with asking... are you ashamed? is he ashamed? No.... and he was not implying that you was a sexual preditor... if you have been doing ur home-work on Taylor... people has been speculating that he was was... you just game them an opportunity to ask if he was gay!
