In Hollywood, personal information is hard to keep from the public. This is especially difficult to keep a private life with all the paparazzi swarming around. So you’ll be surprised to see these seven gay celebrities who are out of the closet now, but managed to keep their sexual preferences a secret – at least for a while.


1. Amber Heard

Remember Scully from The X-Files? Well, she revealed that she’s a proud lesbian in Out magazine, back in 2011. She had a long-term partner who passed away.

Hopefully this helps other gay celebrities to be out and proud.
