Get your mid-Tuesday fill of old school Hollywood gossip with this candid interview with the unsinkable Debbie Reynolds over at UK newspaper The Telegraph. She goes on about how so many leading men in Hollywood were gay when she was young, and probably still are, as per one juicy example.

"Everyone I dated was gay," she said. "Everyone except Robert Wagner. Because otherwise they wouldn’t be hired. Women don’t want to go and see a new movie with a gorgeous looking guy who kisses men. Rock [Hudson], was a close friend, he was gay but he didn’t dare come out so he married his agent’s secretary just to cover it up. He never lived with her and they paid her. Of course it still goes on. Now who’s to say there’s anything wrong with that?"

She also has some things to say about Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie and how Elizabeth Taylor -- despite stealing her husband -- was not "the kind of girl you should hate." Enjoy.
