Morning Man Classic: Richard Chamberlain!

http://themave.com/bijou/60/galry/gal-chamberlain.jpgRichard Chamberlain turns 79 today so it seems like a perfect excuse to feature him as a Morning Man again.

The great star of The Thorn Birds, Shogun and Dr. Kildare

Chamberlain was pretty much off my radar until I saw a scene in Thorn Birds where he was dancing (it was the same party where Barbara Stanwyck kissed him on the lips then died) and he was just so HOT!

From then on, I watched everything he ever did.

Th actor came out as a gay man in 2003 and wrote about it in his memoir Shattered Love: “When I grew up, being gay, being a sissy or anything like that was verboten. I disliked myself intensely and feared this part of myself intensely and had to hide it and became “Perfect Richard, All-American Boy” as a place to hide.”

He continues to be busy in roles both straight and gay – including playing Felicity Huffman’s gay stepfather on Desperate Housewives and Uncle Saul’s love interest on Brothers & Sisters.

His recent films include Forbidden Love, The Perfect Family and I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry.

    When I was five years old, I fell in love with two men: Johnny Mathis and Richard Chamberlain.

    Yes, we are born gay and with gaydar installed.
