The Wayans brothers -- Shawn (pictured, right) and Marlon (left) -- new “Dance Flick” opens today. The comedy spoof pokes fun at “Hairspray,” “Flashdance,” “Save the Last Dance” and “Dreamgirls.”
As they do press to promote the film, the brothers talked to BET and address those pesky rumors that they (coughsMarloncoughsallegedly) are gay.
What is the craziest Internet rumor you all have heard about yourselves?Hold up one bloody second! So a man who with a wife and kids can't possibly be gay? Aren't those men what they call on the "down low"?
Shawn: There is always the gay rumor. Anybody who makes a million dollars is gay.
Marlon: There are pictures of me with my kids! [Laughs]
Shawn: Yeah, it's like—how are we gay? Why?
Marlon: Not that there is anything wrong with that!
Shawn: But why would you pick us? Did we come out with the YMCA wig on or something?
Marlon: What's funny, if I was gay, I would just say it and so be it. When you're a comedian—it's like Ellen, "I am gay and so what!" If I was gay I'd be like, "I'm gay so what!" And I'd be telling jokes about it!
