Cary Grant Not Gay All of a Sudden
Hollywood legend Cary Grant’s daughter, Jennifer, states her father was not gay in a new memoir. According to her he merely enjoyed the speculation. This, despite numerous books on old and gay Hollywood which note he shared a private home with actor Randolph Scott. One public reason to share a home were expenses, despite both being successful movie actors.
Grant, died at the age of 82 in 1986, Jennifer is the product of his marriage to Dyan Cannon, to whom the book is dedicated. “Dad somewhat enjoyed being called gay. He said it made women want to prove the assertion wrong,” the 45-year-old wrote in Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father. She also mentions he enjoyed the male attention, and probably flirted back with men. Grant has been credited with first using the word “gay” on film to mean homosexual – in the screwball comedy Bringing Up Baby. When asked why he was wearing a frilly negligee Grant jumped up and shouted, “Because I’m gay all of a sudden.” Damning evidence, or mere coincidence?
