Quote of the Day

"Nobody in their right mind came out. It was career suicide. We all pretended to be straight. Once we met Paul Newman and his wife [Joanne Woodward] at a premiere. He looked at me and smiled. I just read in his face – that maybe he knew Rock and I were together. We kind of laughed about it."

People magazine talked to Rock Hudson's one-time boyfriend Lee Garlington about their romance in the '60s and he shares lots of sweet little tidbits but natch I had to bring Paul Newman into it because duh. (I wish there were pictures of Hudson & Newman together.) Anyway Garlington says he broke up with Rock because he wanted "a father figure and he was not strong enough. Rock wasn't a real strong personality. He was a gentle giant." Whatever, nut-job.

Sad story. There's so many things we still dont't know about that era.
