Explore Richard Chamberlain and more!

Richard Chamberlain, 1971. I put this in Masks because 1) he's hiding his eyes and 2) he was closeted for most of his life. Which meant that while I a girl was drooling over him openly even before I knew what sexual attraction was, so many boys were forced to hide their attraction to this lovely man. Thank God for change and Neal Patrick Harris, Matthew Bomer, John Barrowman, Ellen DeGeneres, et al.

Richard Chamberlain (March 31,1934) an American stage and screen actor and singer, became a teen idol in the title role of the tv show Dr. Kildare (1961–1966). Since then, he has appeared in several mini-series, many successful films, and performed classical stage roles and worked in the musical theatre. Chamberlain was outed by the French woman's magazine Nous Deux in Dec 1989 at the age of 55, but it was not until 2003 that he officially came out in his autobiography, Shattered Love.

the tattler: Richard Chamberlain...to act in "The Heiress" on stage! Pasadena Playhouse sell-out? I just moved from Pasadena temporarily. A shame to have missed my favorite actor in my home town.
