Josh Groban: I’m not gay, even for Ryan Gosling

“Listen, if I was gonna be gay, that would’ve been the moment. That was probably my greatest test, and I failed.”


–Singer Josh Groban, noting that starring opposite Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love confirmed his heterosexuality. In an interview with PrideSouce, Groban — an LGBT ally — once again responded to questions regarding his sexuality, which have followed him throughout his career.

“Honestly, if I were gay, I would have had no problem saying it from day one,” he said. “People have speculated, have wanted to speculate – whatever, fine. I’m not gay, but if I were, I don’t view it as a bad thing.”
