Taking Bets on Hayden’s Closet Status
Posted by Patrick on 10 Dec 2007
We all read the interview or saw the video online where Hayden Panettiere is quoted as saying that she’d love to have an affair with Angelina Jolie, among other hotties with whom many men also want to have an affair. She’s saying that she’s ok with the media portraying her as a lesbian candidate but didn’t come out and make a statement in either direction about what her reality is.
Before I get down this path, I want to say first that I tolerate all people and their lifestyles as readers of this blog; I don’t bash many types of people simply because of who they are – where I draw my line is when one group of people aims to infringe on the rights of others or the rights of unsuspecting bystanders. In this case, that is – in the context of this post, if the subject is homosexuality or bisexuality, that’s fine with me. I have several friends who are one or the other, as many of us do, and I accept people who lead this lifestyle alongside my peers. For the record, I have voted in favor of gay rights every time I’ve voted on an issue because I believe the old Christian principles, while valuable and influential to a large audience in the US, infringe on the rights of those who may even practice another religion.
Sorry for the diatribe; I want to check my guns at the gate before proceeding.
So, let’s set some odds on Hayden’s quoted relationship candidates and the chances that the hookup will ever happen. I’ll open with these:
Hayden and Angelina: 75:1
Hayden and Charlize: 50:1
Hayden and Jessica Alba: 200:1
Hayden and Kate Beckinsdale: 100:1
Hayden and any currently-declared celebrity B/L: 15:1
At least 1 year passing with no announced hookups: 7:4
What would I pay to see? How about an episode of Heroes where Hayden and Kristen Bell get steamy; yep that would hold my attention.
