Entertainment, especially Hollywood is largely about fantasy. It is ALL fake. I agree with the above. Nobody needs to know about their personal lives because when they play a role, that's not who they are. They are actors, and live in a pretend world while working. I think there is an element of angst produced by that fact, and a reason why some actors become activists to give them some semblance of being relevant for their huge egos and HUGE INSECURITIES. From what I can tell Hudson was private about his Gayness, and he was well liked by his fellow actors and actresses. Ice Station Zebra was a very flawed movie in many ways, but I still find it entertaining, and his performance pretty darn good.
