What happened was that CNN's iReport blog quoted him saying,

“The timing is bad. I hadn’t realised it was April Fool’s Day, but it’s been pointed out to me, and I don’t want to go too public with this.”

As we all know Bruno was already a subject of a lot of speculations regarding his sexuality and when the news came, it became one of the trending news all around the globe. But then Bruno's representative ordered CNN to take down the news as it was all false. 

The singer is in a relationship with Jessica Caban since 2012 but that is still not enough evidence to silent all the gay websites.  

Multiple gay websites still claim the singer is gay and in the past few years we haven't come across any activities in his dating life so who knows, maybe the speculations are true or maybe not? 

6.) Elijah Woods

The Lord of the Rings star Elijah Woods has also made a lot of confusion regarding his sexuality but unlike making a fuss about all the rumors, Elijah often laughs over the comments regarding his sexual orientation. 

The actor won numerous awards for his work in the movie series, Lord of the Rings. Because of his wide fame, many sources claim he is single because he doesn't like dating women as he is gay.

In an interview, he revealed how he searches himself on the internet and see doctored photos of him in compromising positions with men. He added, 

"There’s one that’s called elijahwoodisveryverygay, which is actually a personal favorite of mine, it’s absolutely hilarious.”

He later divulged,

“It’s this kind of joke Web site that maintains that they have proof that I am very, very gay in various photographs — photographic evidence (of me) holding hands with a male.”

But the biggest confusion comes when the actor laughs at all these vague talks about his sexual orientation but then when asked to clear the confusion, he never adds anything. 

5.) Jeremy Renner 

Marvel Avengers and Bourne star, Jeremy Renner came under light for his sexuality back in 2012. Many media outlets stated the actor might possibly be gay. The actor didn't take the allegations lightly as Elijah did.

During an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, he gave a blunt answer and said

“How about I go peek in your window, take what underwear you wore last night, whose husband you were f**king, and shove that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel?”

Well, the reporter wasn't expecting that. Then later in 2014, he tied the knot with Sonni Pacheco. After a mere 1-year, the couple decided to go their separate ways. They share one child between them, Ava.  

Jeremy as angry he may sound whenever question regarding his sexuality is raised, never stated directly that he is not gay. In the majority of his interviews, the actor said not to interfere with his personal life, nothing more. 

In 2015, he addressed his gay rumors and said people should respect other's sexuality and not shame or judge them.

4.) Hugh Jackman

He played smartly at that time but the confusion still remains whether the actor is straight or gay.

"Are you f--king gay or what?"

For which the gay James answered,

"I like to think that I'm gay in my art and straight in my life. Although, I'm also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse, and then you could say I'm straight. So I guess it depends on how you define gay."

He said if we consider a person's sexuality by the gender of his sexual partners then he is straight. He gave examples of sailors and said that back in the 20s or 30s, sailors would have sex with guys but they were still considered straight.
