With the enormous success of the Netflix series House of Cards, two-time Oscar winner Kevin Spacey has never been a bigger star.

But he remains one of the most private when it comes to his life off-screen.

In a new Hollywood Reporter cover story, it is reported that Spacey so fiercely guards his private life that 'his affable demeanor shuts off the moment he is asked about it.'

Back in 1997, the year Spacey starred in LA Confidential, a profile in Esquire magazine suggested that he is gay.

He has always refused to say whether he is or not being even more closed on the subject than the famously closed Queen Latifah.

'Let's let people live their lives and do it the way they want to do it,' he tells The Reporter.

'All the chips will fall in the end, and we'll all be judged by a much higher power than Entertainment Weekly can.'

I feel like I want to reply to so many comments, but I can barely read them. Can people PLEASE learn how to spell before clicking on the “save” button?

That being said, who the hell’s business is it whether he is gay, straight, bi, hermaphrodite, alien, or whatever else he may be. He is a wonderful actor and a fine humanitarian. Please, just go about your business and keep your gob shut!
