Jonathan Rhys Meyers is convinced Elvis Presley was homosexual - as he is suspicious of his glitzy wardrobe and maternal attachment. The Irish actor, who played the title role in 2005 TV film ELVIS, has branded the HEARTBREAK HOTEL rocker "the gayest f**king thing on two legs" after time spent researching the star yielded truly camp results. He says, "Anyone who lives with their mama that long and dresses up in that much spangly gold with black lacquer on their eyes has definitely got something going on."

After a big research AND you find that Elvis was Gay??? What was your degree Meyers? Junior High school? Well.. even kids at the age of 5 they say Elvis is great not because of his clothing but his personality and talent. If they understand it so clealry and YOU CAN ONLY CONCLUDE WITH THAT KIND OF SENTENCE than YOU are one of those who want every people homosexual. By the way I am bisexual aaannnd I say He was f**king THAT STR8.The King is the greatest.

How dare you, Jonathan! You have a lot of balls coming on here posting assenine comments about someone you don't even know--making false assumptions based on what?? You don't even know yourself. Elvis is and will always be THE most talented, kind, giving, handsome Performer ever to walk the face of this earth--and no one but no one will ever fill his shoes. I am VERY proud to be an Elvis fan--LOVE the man with all my heart--and I carry him with me in my heart wherever I go and whatever I do. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it Mr. Noclue. And by the way--Elvis wasn't gay. Loser.

my two cents's picture

my two cents

Elvis wasn't gay, but he experimented when he was in his late teens. When Colonel Parker learned this, he had Elvis set up with another young man and secretly had photos taken. He held this over Elvis's head his entire life. He blackmailed Elvis and squeezed as much $ out of Elvis as he could. Many young musicians and artists often experiment, it doesn't mean anything. But to be blackmailed over it your entire career must be awful. Imagine having a manager that you despise and is guiding you in all the wrong directions, but there's nothing you can do!

As for Jonathan's comments, this isn't the first time this has been discussed but I believe this young Irishman basically had one too many pints when he said that. I mean, when I first heard of "Bend Like Beckham", I thought it was another Irish "Brokeback Mountain", especially after seeing him in the trailers. Now if Jonathan can take a little more acting lessons from the young man who walked away with Golden Globes for, let's see, "Walk The Line", maybe his future roles as an American would be more convincing. As for Elvis being gay, only Elvis would know that and if this is so and with me being an Elvis Impersonator, I guess I'm gay too. But you know what, Liberace had more class in his little pinkie ring than drunk Irishman Jonathan would have in his entire scrawy body. Cheers mate.

why would you say that jonathan, and i thought jonathans portrayal of Elvis wasnt too bad either.Elvis Presley was not gay.seems to me jonathan should get his facts straight before shouting his mouth off really.it is appalling that he should stoop so low as to say things that arent true, just to gain publicity.im sorry but the respect i gained for mr meyers has dissapeared, i thought you were really nice jonathan how wrong could we be, and you dont have to be a elvis fan to think that either, which i am a proud Elvis fan .julie

Meyers was mediocre at best with his portrayal of Elvis and maybe he should have studied how to act instead of coming up with ridiculous comments like that. Maybe he's jealous of Elvis. Meyers won an Emmy award out of it. Nice way to show respect. His comments really show that he didn't do much studying of Elvis or knew much about him because if he had, there would be no way he would have come up with such insulting comments.Cory CooperElvisExpert@aol.com

You LITTLE LITTLE LITTLE man!!!Let's just say for argument sake that the LITTLE man was right, so what? He has 50,000,000 fans world-wide. The Presidents of the United States & Japan are visiting Graceland this weekend. It was on the requested itinerary from the Japenese Government to see Graceland and where ELVIS lived. That say everything! Elvis was kind, generous, passionate, compassionate, had more talent in his little finger than the LITTLE man will ever have in his whole career, he was more handsome than 10 movie stars rolled up together and almost 30 years after his death, he is still the most popular eclectic star in the WORLD. If Elvis was gay? So what? Will it change anything? NEVER NEVER NEVERHe loved his mother? Give me any guy who LOVES his mother any day over a LITTLE man who couldn't adequately portray a soldier standing at attention let alone the greatest icon in musical history.You sucked at the job LITTLE man. Thanks for verifying that in the entertainment industry that you are in, where a great many wonderful gay people flourish; you have made more enemies in one sentence and they will finish you off quicker than your short lived failing career.Elvis was gay? Laughable. If he was, I think you'll find that the 1000 women he slept with and the Memphis Mafia who slept with their friends will be rolling on the floor sputtering giggles.He was and forever will be the KING of Rock and Roll and the most successful entertainment hero EVER.LITTLE man, you couldn't even lick the horse manure from his ranch, off of his boots.Enjoy the fame while it lasts...you have wakened 50,000,00 angry fans and guess what LITTLE man...many of them are major Hollywood and New York Entertainment Heroes.Love Live the King!Thanks Elvis for always being the fabulous human being you were. WE love you!
