Former The Young and the Restless actor Shemar Moore (ex-Malcolm Winters) often deals with rumors about his sexuality. He finally set the record straight.
While promoting his new film The Bounce Back, Shemar Moore appeared on the talk show. Aside from talking about the movie, he spent time talking to Williams about rumors that he’s gay appearing on social media.
The talk show host asked him about the social media rumors that won’t go away. The successful actor told Williams, “I just think it’s all silly. If you’re gay, you’re gay.
I’m not, and I know that and I’m very comfortable with who I am and I love women. I’ve dated plenty of them. If you think I’m gay, send your girlfriend over to my house for the weekend and see what happens.”
He went on to mention that he gives his fans (men or women) hugs and takes pictures, which has nothing to do with being gay or not.
If you’re interested in seeing this former Y&R actor on the silver screen, the movie The Bounce Back, which Shemar Moore also produced, opened nationwide in theaters on Friday, Dec. 9.
