Tom Selleck is one of the most popular actors and film producers in America. He was pretty handsome in the 80s. Therefore, he has had to face this type of question regarding his sexuality, even though his name was never linked with any of the male actors or other people. 

Tom is totally a family person. Currently, he boasts around 34 years of married life with his wife, Jillie Mack, and this pair has a daughter named Hannah. 

How did the Gay Rumor get Started?

This gay rumor started a long time ago, in the 1970s. Even though at that time, Tom wasn’t that famous. Over time, and after doing Magnum, P.I., this gay rumor peaked.

Moreover, years ago Global (tabloid) published an article that Tom Selleck is gay. Since that time, this rumor has risen. Though it was completely untrue, they printed that article without any proof or facts. 

On the other hand,  Tom stared in a gay movie named “In and Out.”

That was an American comedy movie released in 1997 and directed by Frank Oz. Tom portrayed a reporter in that film and his character’s name was Peter Malloy, who is gay. The movie consists of superb comedy. If you are a comedy fan, you should watch it.

These are the possible ways that the gay rumor started. But, some gossip, old news, and acting in a gay film doesn’t make Tom Selleck gay. 

What is Tom Selleck’s Sexual Orientation? 

The 77-year-old actor, Tom Selleck, has always been clear about his sexual orientation; he’s straight. He was pretty surprised when he saw the article published by Globe regarding his sexuality. He took legal action against Globe immediately at that time.

Tom filed a $20 million dollar lawsuit against Globe though that matter was settled outside the court with an unknown amount. After that, Globe reprinted an apology statement for damaging Tom’s reputation and professional career. 

Selleck has been married twice and has his own children. If he was gay, he would not have a 34-year long marriage with his second wife, Jillie. Therefore, it’s crystal clear that Tom is heterosexual and happily living with his family.
