With Twilight stars Taylor Lautner and Kellan Lutz stirring up a media storm with their respective "I'm straight" declarations, looks like a lot attention is still being paid to being gay in Hollywood.

To recap, gay/straight headline hoopla had ensued after Kellan recently addressed rumors about his sexuality. Over on Team Taylor, the hottie werewolf politely said no when a GQ Australia writer asked their cover boy if openly gay director Gus Van Sant and Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black had ever hit on him. Fans balked and Black took out his anger on his blog. The magazine quickly issued an apology to Taylor and said they meant no harm.
