Alicia Silverstone: My First Boyfriend Was Gay

Submitted by on October 26, 2012 – 12:04 pm Comments

Recently, Alicia Silverstone revealed that her first boyfriend was interested in guys. In other words he was gay.  ”I’ve had so many crushes on gay boys. My first love was so gay, and I didn’t know. I used to defend him because everyone would say he was gay, but he’d say he wasn’t,” she recalls. “Then, about six years later, he had the big talk with me”. Must have come as quite a shock to her, one must say. What is shocking is that, it took her 6 years to realize he was gay and that too after he told her so. Silverstone’s defense is that she has a less than perfect gaydar.

On co-starring with Cheyenne Jackson on the Broadway show The Performers (which is about the adult film industry), she says, “I was just with a friend, and he was telling me Cheyenne is gay, and I didn’t know that!” It seems like she at last got it right when she got married to Christopher Jarecki. As far as Alicia’s career is concerned, besides being an actress she is also a film and television producer, author, and animal rights and environmental activist. So she really knows how to keep herself busy.
