Lionsgate

It’s really that simple. If Cait (or any other cast member) ever works on Lionsgate movie, she’ll get that promo as well. She will not get it for a movie that’s not made by them. Neither will Sam. 

Also, remember? It’s not a competition. Or does that only apply when Cait is the one that gets promotion? You know, like she did for Emmys for the show they both work on. 

OL PR sucks, promoting a movie but not their own show is ludicrous and frustrating, but that’s all it is. This isn’t about favourites. It’s business. Stop making it something it’s not. And seriously, it’s just one fucking tweet. It’s hardly turned into TSWDM account.

PS: Sam is not STARZ favourite. LOL. If he was he would be treated better by his company and the production. Being thrown under the bus by production, his best work constantly being cut and promoted as just a hot guy isn’t what favourites get. Favourites get promo for awards and praise from their bosses. He is fandom favourite though. As is his character. I know. Hard to swallow for some of you. But he is. That’s why he is the cash cow and is used as such. Not really his fault though. Shocking revelation, I’m sure.

Here is what I don’t get. Assuming SC are together in some capacity, why would one or either of them be ok with this pay for play Sam/LG/WS deal? Like if your boss said you can’t be together, you come back to the table with, fine but I want a movie role! Rather than, no dice, I want to be open with my wife! It’s like trying to figure out what Putin has on trump 😂

Maybe they want privacy. Maybe they don’t want people watching their sex scenes from Outlander and assuming that’s what they look like having sex in private. Maybe they violated a non fraternization clause and when they were approached about it, they didn’t have enough power to get around it. Maybe they were given poor advice by their agent(s)/publicist(s). Maybe they wanted to be taken seriously as actors and were worried being a real life couple would take away from their work on the show.

We have no idea what has gone on behind closed doors. After so long, we can sit back and string some things together and draw conclusions, and we’ve certainly gotten better at doing that in the moment, but when the IFH happened and then all the subsequent shit that started, it was new territory for all of us. We are seasoned now, and still here, which I don’t think they counted on. That has changed the game for the core group of shippers (being able to recognize when we’re being played) who have been around for a long time, but it’s also why people think we’re delusional.

Or maybe we’re wrong and their mixed signals and words over the last 4+ years are just because they’re weird, messy, inappropriate people. I don’t know. I’m still betting on my old box of receipts.

“Spy Who Dumped Me” Star Sam Heughan Is Honored That You Think He’s Gay

“Spy Who Dumped Me” Star Sam Heughan Is Honored That You Think He’s Gay:

Whether Sam Heughan is our next (gay?) Bond remains to be seen. For now, the 38-year-old Scottish heartthrob is playing it straight as sexy British agent Sebastian in his first major film, The Spy Who Dumped Me.

In Susanna Fogel’s action-comedy, Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon star as BFFs Audrey and Morgan who are hilariously fleeing from assassins targeting them because Audrey’s ex-boyfriend Drew (Justin Theroux) is a spy.

Known for portraying Jamie Fraser in the Starz time-travel drama Outlander, Heughan talked to NewNowNext about his blessedly gay oeuvre and the queer cult classic he’d go bare-legged for.

Courtesy of LionsgateHow aware are you of your LGBTQ fan base?

I’m not aware! But I hope there is one. And if there isn’t, then we need to make one.

I think it’s been made, Sam. Outlander’s queerness seems to have courted a sizeable gay audience.

I suppose it has. The only gay character is John Grey, but that relationship (with Jamie) is so interesting, and it’s been really, really fun. It’s a really beautiful friendship they’ve got, and this sort of understanding. And it’s sad, actually, for John Grey because he’s really fallen for Jamie, and it’s not reciprocated in that way. I really feel for that guy.

The Spy Who Dumped Me just might lead to the Bond movie that William Shatner wants you to star in. And based on his endorsement, he wants you to play…gay Bond?

God bless him. Everyone’s being talked about, but I think it’s time that, yeah, why not? Let’s do a gay Bond. That’d be cool. I’ve actually played quite a few gay characters. I did A Very British Sex Scandal (in 2007), which was about this reporter who was taken to court in the late ’50s. I’ve done a few characters on stage as well. But, yeah, I don’t know if it’s typecasting. (Laughs)

Courtesy of LionsgateHow did you end up playing so many gay roles?

Those parts are really interesting because there’s this grey area. These characters are not always fully aware of their situation or in control of their situation, and they have very strong feelings and very strong emotions and tend to be really interesting parts.

Your love scene in the play Plague Over England, which was performed in London in 2008 and 2009, obviously resonated with gay audiences. How did you approach that role?

It’s such a wonderful awakening for this character to sort of fall in love with this very attractive, very intelligent, very fun guy. Then, we see him 20 years later. He’s kind of lost the love of his life, and I loved the arc, the journey of that.

And it doesn’t matter if he’s straight or gay; it’s just about love, and love lost, really. And it was a really nice play to do, actually. Leon [Ockenden] was my lover in that and we’re still very good friends.

A critic, or a troll, tweeted: “Mr. Heughan is one of the most boring homosexual actors out there.” Your retort: “Boring and homosexual never go together. But thank you for the compliment.x” Do people sometimes mistake you as gay, and do you usually just take that as a compliment?

Yeah, I guess. I played a few gay parts and maybe people might make assumptions about me. I mean, it’s not true, but I don’t really care. I think, whatever, if that’s what you’re gonna pick out from someone’s performance.

But you take being called gay a compliment.

I love that world. My makeup artist in the U.K. is very camp and she brings out the best camp side in me.

Do you aspire to play a campy role?

There’s a fantastic play I saw many, many years ago and it’s a one-man show about a transvestite. It was such a wonderful bit of writing. I would kind of love to do that.

How about The Rocky Horror Picture Show?

Maybe one day. Work up to that. That singing, though! And I can’t dance.

You’re quite tall. Any interest in wearing leggings to play Frank-N-Furter?

Yeah, why not? I’ve got the legs for it.

The Spy Who Dumped Me opens nationwide Aug. 3.

great interview!   i love Sam’s responses.   he’s confronting the rumors with humor, honesty and tolerance.   and truthfully, he’s changed my opinions about a few things.   i’m a BIGGER fan of Sam now than ever before.   :o)

Well shit. I guess he’s with Cait then. 🤔
