Keanu Reeves and his gay marriage.
MASSACHUSETTS (Providence Journal) - First Rosie, now Keanu! Only days before the Massachusetts legislature was set to vote on the banning of gay marriages in their state, actors Keanu Reeves and Alan Cumming(NightCrawler of XMEN2), raced over there to marry one another before a small party of invited friends. Reeves, star of such films as "The Matrix", "Something's Gotta Give" and "Point Break" had always been rumored to be gay, but always maintained his heterosexuality. Cumming, star of such films as "Spy Kids" and "X-Men 2" had always been openly bi-sexual, but had never married before. The duo, who had apparently been "secretly dating on-and-off" for over four years, wrote their own vows and recited them while Melissa Etheridge softly hummed "Come Through my Window" in the background.The state of Massachusetts was getting set to amend the state constitution to ban gay marriage but establish civil unions for same-sex couples, which is one of the reasons the long-time companions decided to speed up the process and marry right now. Ex-talk show host Rosie O'Donnell married her six-year companion Kelli Carpenter in a similar high-profile celebrity gay wedding in San Francisco on February 27th. Reeves said that this was the "happiest day of his life, both professionally and personally". The couple, who held hands and french-kissed openly in a press conference after the civil ceremony, were happy to get it all out in the open, "I wanted to come out when The Matrix hit big, but my agents told me that it would be career suicide. I'm glad that I can finally tell the world that I am gay and proud today. Thanks to The Matrix Revolutions!"Reeves and Cumming flew from Los Angeles to Auburn, Massachusetts yesterday afternoon, for a 4 p.m. appointment at the Auburn City Hall to obtain a marriage license. Immediately after the license was issued, the marriage ceremony was performed by City Treasurer K.D. Grant. The ceremony was held behind closed doors in a Mayor Gavin McCleod's office. "It was one of the most beautiful things that I have ever witnessed", said McCleod, "Keanu looked as though he was on cloud nine, while Cumming was in tears the whole way through. He was definitely the more 'queen' of the two". The wedding, a first for either actor, lasted only a few minutes, but featured plenty of bouquets and show tunes.Cumming, elated by the whole affair, couldn't help but let his joy be known to the world at the jam-packed press conference, "I love Keanu Reeves and I don't care who knows! I am a man and I love another man and I am proud of it. Tom...come out already, you jerk!" Cumming's last remark apparently aimed at actor Tom Cruise, a celebrity who has been dogged by "gay rumors" since he hit it big, despite being married twice (to women), having children with one of them and dating plenty of women over the years. Reeves, embarrassed by Cumming remark, followed that up with a crude note about his partner's surname, "Forget Tom, Alan...I'm going to be Cumming with you tonight!" The crowd, made up of a variety of cross-dressers, transvestites, lesbians and business men in suits, squealed throughout most of the flashy affair.
Keanu Reeves Gay Marriage?Tuesday, February 08, 2005Keanu Reeves is said to have married Alan Cumming. This is the second rumor about Keanu Reeves marriage to a gay guy. The first rumor said that Keanu Reeves wed David Geffen. Rumors announced that Keanu Reeves and his gay pal held their wedding in front of a small party of friends in the state of Massachusetts just before the ban on gay marriage. Openly gay actor, Alan Cumming and "The Matrix" star Keanu Reeves apparently have been dating secretly for years. His is the first marriage for both of them. Like Keanu Reeves told Vanity Fair, "There's nothing wrong with being gay, so to deny it is to make a judgment. And why make a big deal of it?" Until now Keanu Reeves rumored gay status has been just that - a rumor. But if the wedding were indeed preformed, then that would mean that Keanu Reeves might actually be gay after all.
