Shawn Mendes had said that he would have wanted to portray the lead character in Love, Simon, a gay teen romance.

During an interview with Elvis Duran, the presenter asked Mendes whether rumors about him auditioning for the leading role were real. In response, the Canadian singer/songwriter said, “I would’ve liked to.”

“Unfortunately, the timing didn’t work out, but that would’ve been amazing,” he added.

The film is historically noteworthy as the first major-studio adolescent rom-com to include a gay protagonist, based on Becky Albertalli’s novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and follows 17-year-old Simon Spier as he comes to grips with his sexuality.

The part went to actor Nick Robinson, who, perhaps not coincidentally, looks like Mendes’s brother. The singer informed Duran that he admired Robinson’s performance and termed Love, Simon a “great, fantastic movie,” even though it was an anxious moviegoing experience for him.

Mendes on going to watch Love, Simon said, “Watching last night, Nick just did an incredible job and it was really amazing.”

“Except for the fact that I was freaking out every two minutes, checking my phone, because [“In My Blood”] was coming. I thought going to a movie would be a relaxing thing to do. The opposite!”

Shawn Mendes has been suffering gay rumors for years

The 24-year-old singer has endured homosexual accusations for years. Mendes has insisted that he is straight, publishing Snapchat videos in which he blasts individuals who labeled him gay. The rumors resurfaced on Thursday.

This time, it was because the official Twitter account for the film Love Simon published a message. “Dear Shawn, There’s nothing holding me back. Love, Simon,” the now-deleted tweet stated.

Some Twitter users were amused, joking that it “outed” Mendes, while others were offended, calling the remark detrimental and rude.

Mendes stated that the constant speculations about his sexuality have been “frustrating” to bear and have caused him to suffer.

Mendes told Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast, “It was so, so frustrating for me because there were some people in my life that I was very, very close to who were gay and in the closet. And I felt this real anger for those people.”

Mendes stated that it is “tricky” for him to remark on the sexuality speculations and that he never knows how to respond to such circumstances.

“You want to say, ‘I’m not gay, but it’d be fine if I was gay. But also, there’s nothing wrong with being gay but I’m not,” Mendes added. However, there is nothing wrong with being yourself.

Mendes clarified to Shepard that these allegations had been around for a long time as everyone’s been calling him gay since he was around 15 years old.

Shawn’s gay rumors resurfaced after his breakup with Camilla Cabello 

Mendes and Camila Cabello announced the end of their two-year romance, sending a meteorite falling through the LGBTQ world — or, at the very least, gay Twitter.

Mendes is straight, although speculations regarding his sexuality have circulated for years. The subject has always piqued the interest of the LGBT community, and his breakup did little to calm gossipers and defenders.

People have shared memes on social media, many joking about gay guys rushing to the heartthrob’s home now that he’s single.

Google searches for “Shawn Mendes gay” reached a three-year high when news of the couple’s split broke.

An introduction to Zack Snyder’s children

Snyder is a father to eight kids from his three wives, four of whom are his biological, and others are adopted. The loving dad has inked all his eight children’s names on his arm.

Now talking about his other children, his son Jett and Ezekiel are from his relationship with Kristen Elin, and both are his biological children. Similarly, from his second and current marriage to Deborah Snyder, he is blessed with two children named Cash and Sage.

Autumn is no longer alive

Snyder lost his daughter, Autumn. The 20-year-old lost her life through suicide. Zack and his first wife, Weber, had adopted the then-one-year-old Autumn from China.

Like her father, Autumns was drawn toward writing. The Sarah Lawrence College student was in the middle of writing a science fiction novel before her death. Also, she was stepping toward Philanthropy with her effort to create a charity called Write-A-Thon To End Homelessness For Mothers and Their Children in 2014

The proud father praised his daughter on Twitter. He wrote, “So proud of my amazing daughter Autumn’s first philanthropic endeavor!”

The loss of one of the family members left the family devastated. The filmmaker even stepped away from the original cut of Justice League after his daughter’s death and decided to be with his family.

“I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time,” he said, “I’m having a hard time… I want the movie to be amazing, and I’m a fan, but that all pales pretty quickly in comparison.”

Thankfully, he healed himself with his family’s support and returned. He dedicated his cut of Justice League to his late daughter.

The 56-year-old told Vanity Fair, “…but I’m a filmmaker, so you get this giant movie. At the movie’s end, it says, ‘For Autumn.’ Without her, this absolutely would not have happened.”

What about the other members of the family?

Snyder’s oldest biological son, Eli, is also interested in filmmaking. He has been involved in various of his father’s movies, including 300, where he appeared as an eight-year-old Leonidas. He also appeared in Watchmen and Sucker Punch.

About his next son, Jett is quite shy in the spotlight. He was unhappy with the final cut of Justice League, and he had even shown his disappointment regarding Warner Brothers’ interference in the movie.

Snyder’s daughter Willow was also adopted from China. She has appeared in a few public events with her father. She participated in a campaign to raise awareness and funds for suicide prevention in 2017 following her sister’s death.

The information about the other four children is quite not available. Snyder’s other daughter Olivia is from his first wife, Webner, with whom Snyder legally separated. Then he was in a relationship with Elin, and he had another son Ezekiel apart from Jett.

Cash and Sage are adopted children with his current wife, Deborah, whom he married on September 25, 2004.

So in his 50s, Snyder has seven children with three ladies, and he treasures all his children with this fatherly affection.
