When the Emmy nominations came out this week, people talked about how Richard Madden was “snubbed” for Best Actor for Bodyguard. Bodyguard was nominated for Best Drama, but Madden was snubbed, even though he was widely acclaimed and loved in that role. Madden has been everywhere this year with Bodyguard, and with his role in Rocketman, where he played John Reid, Elton John’s manager and lover.
What’s my point? I don’t know, I think it’s strange that Madden didn’t get an Emmy nomination, and I halfway wonder if the Television Academy is snubbing him personally because he isn’t talking much about his personal life. For months now, Madden has been “pulling a Kristen Stewart,” which is to say… Madden is not discussing his sexuality publicly, but he’s not hiding anything either. He’s been photographed in New York and LA with Brandon Flynn, who is often described as a “roommate” or “friend.” It definitely feels like they’re together though. And it definitely feels like Richard Madden is bisexual, because he’s previously been in romantic relationships with high-profile women too.
Richard and Brandon were photographed together yet again this week out in West Hollywood, maybe the gym? They seemed to be attempting a low-key vibe. One photo agency even called Brandon a “mystery guy,” even though Richard and Brandon have been photographed together so much this year. So… I guess this story is “Brandon and Richard are still together, they were out in West Hollywood after Madden was snubbed for an Emmy nomination.” Let’s go with that.

My goal this year has been not to click on anything from the mysognistic, homophobic, racist Daily Fail. And I used to be addicted to its gossip section.
Good for Richard! He doesn’t owe anyone an explanation.
I wonder if its a very UK thing to do. Cause Im pretty sure Lee Pace and Richard Armitage havent discussed their sexuality. Or even Tom Hardy isnt open to discussing it.
Either way, I hope hes happy.
I think Lee Pace actually spoke on the subject in the last year or so while he was doing Angels in America.
I’m over my limit at NYTimes, and I’m not a subscriber. But I believe this is the article I’m referencing — https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/04/style/gay-actors-on-broadway-lee-pace.html
I really don’t care about anyone’s sexuality. They can come out if they want. To me, their character is all that matters..
I’m trying too but it’s hard. But some of the so called news articles are horrible. I’ve got to stop. But I like the celebrity part of that website.
Totally agreed with you. He is a really good actor, i enjoy his work.
left out antisemitic
They’re both super talented and gorgeous. I kinda love that they’re not telling.
Good gad, where is their gym?
As to the article–celebrities don’t owe us anything, and they certainly don’t owe us revelation of their personal lives.
Aaahh, I love them
Oh Kaiser, you’ve been missing out! These two have been all over Europe together for weeks now! Italy, London, Scotland (where he joined Richard’s fam at his honorary doctorate ceremony) etc. Only one photo- a terribly blurry one taken in Italy by a fan (I think) apart from the doctorate pics- but lots of sightings on twitter etc. They seem inseparable, it’s sweet. And VERY cool that Richard seems to be about to be announced as one of Marvel’s big new heroes and it still hasn’t seemed to deter them at all.
This makes Richard Madden 10000000x sexier to me.
Not the point.. I know…
I mean…. his life is his life and I just want him to be happy.
But….. it’s so HOT.
I agree with you 100%. I fully expected them to shut down operations when people started talking so much about them, but Richard manned the hell up and didn’t stop anything.
They are a very hot couple, if they are a couple. I’m glad they don’t choose to publicly explain their relationship. No one should have to do that.
Wait so he may be the gay one Marvel hired for The Eternals. Remember they said they were gonna get an openly gay guy. Maybe this is all their way of having him come out. Either way, it’s really fine. People make so much of one’s sexuality. It’s beyond ridiculous at this point.
I’m a (straight) woman who’s cheering for these two. The way Madden has handled this has been excellent for “the cause.” When will the suits and marketing people realise no one cares what actors (at least actors who are famous for their acting and not their relationships) do in their private lives?
Why do we constantly feel the need to speculate on an actors sexuality? It feels so invasive and I totally get why he’s not saying anything. Why should be!
