Saying that someone is gay is not a bad thing. He either is or isn't. But, I don't think Jack was gay. I think he got a kick out of spreading the rumor and acting effeminite. And I sure got a kick out of watching it. My God was it funny!
: While some of Jack's behavior today seems a bit "feminine", I really doubt there is any truth to this rumor. In fact it really bothers me that someone would say it at all. Jack was a nice man. Period. I can't believe someone would say things like that about him.
: : : I have heard and read some rumors lately that Jack Benny was gay, or at least bisexual, and that this has been one of Hollywood's best kept secrets from his fans. Has anyone else heard these rumors? Anything to them?
: : Although JB has played some transvestite type of roles on the screen and tv ,in all my reading(biography etc.)there has not been one iota of this claim.If anything Jack was a "ladies man".
