Actor Jamie Bell: Tintin Might Be Gay!

Jamie Bell, who has grown up quite nicely since his Billy Elliot days will be voicing the main character of Tintin in the forthcoming Steven Spielberg adaptation, The Adventures of Tintin (Les Aventures de Tintin) based on the series of classic comic books created by Belgian artist Georges Rémi

In an interview with Nightlife.ca Bell weighs in on whether he thinks Tintin is gay:

I mean, I think that there’s always been that conversation; there’s always been that argument. No one has ever said no to that argument; there’s nothing definitive, so I mean, it’s up in the air. It’s an interesting question, because there is a lack of women and females in the entire Tintin universe; there’s only one and she’s represented as this annoying person who is singing all the time and bugs everyone [Ed’s Note: La Castafiore]. So there’s more mythology and curiosity about that. In all fairness, marriage and relationships aren’t really on his radar, though; he’s got bigger fish to fry and a larger treasure to find.”

Well if TinTin really is gay he’s very lucky to be from Belgium

Belgium is considered to be a very liberal country in regards to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) rights and became the second country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage, in 2003.

You go TinTin girl!
