The 12 Most Infamous Open Secrets in Hollywood

 

Hollywood is a town built on artifice; a place where everything you see is not what it seems. Is it any wonder that the city’s unofficial motto is “fake it till you make it?” The entertainment industry secrets that float around Los Angeles are so thick that during pilot season you have to wear a face mask to keep yourself from hearing about which producers are sleeping with which hopeful young starlets and who’s addicted to what. Some open secrets in Hollywood are too big to ignore, so rather than look the other way, most people simply pretend like the insane thing that’s happening isn’t real; or like it was something they imagined. In an age when there’s so much happening and everything feels ephemeral it’s never been easier to hide your secrets in plain sight.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that most of these Hollywood open secrets are about mega stars in the entertainment industry who have managed to cultivate a godlike air around themselves. Some of them are as simple as who’s secretly gay, or who’s in an open marriage, but the most salacious stories that everyone ignores are more existential. They deal with things that everyone in Hollywood knows but can’t seem to bring themselves to talk about. And even if they are discussed, whatever webpage they were posted on sweeps them up in the detritus of the news cycle. So take a moment now and check out the most infamous open secrets in Hollywood.
