I can't think of a single person who does not love Shemar Moore. The former soap star, Criminal Minds actor, and current S.W.A.T. star has been in the industry for years and is showing no sign of slowing down!
Moore loves interacting with fans on social media. He's maybe the only celebrity who can post as much as he does without being labeled vain or cocky, simply because of his charisma (and those dimples!). But something noticeably missing from Moore's social media is any hint of a romantic life.
The 47-year-old has never been married and is rarely linked to anyone publicly. He also caused a kerfuffle when he posed with an LGBTQ fan, because apparently that's an issue? The rumor mill started speculating that Moore was gay, but he shot those down pretty quickly.
"I just think it's all silly," he said. "If you're gay, you're gay. I'm not, and I know that and I'm very comfortable with who I am and I love women," he said. "I've dated plenty of them. If you think I'm gay, send your girlfriend over to my house for the weekend and see what happens. For real. You can call that arrogant if you want to. I just call it confident. You can call me whatever you want, but you don't know me."
Seems like he's made it pretty clear that he's straight. But Moore also went on to clarify his stance on the ignorance that follows these rumors.
"I have fans that are gay," Moore said. "Men that come up to me, and they're inspired by me, or they like me as an entertainer, and when they want to give me a hug or take pictures with me, what, am I supposed to not put my arm around them or stand next to them, and if the man next to me in the picture is gay, that makes me gay? That's just simpleminded ignorance, and I don't play that."
That still left a lot of people wondering why the handsome actor is still single. Surely someone out there is right for him! But after hearing the way Moore talks about his past relationships, we're starting to understand things a little more.
