"I'm gay...as a goose," Jared Leto declared in an interview, and now the blogarazzi are wondering aloud about the star's sexual orientation. The former My So Called Life heartthrob was being interviewed in a live online chat about his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, when he made the comment. "I'll give you an exclusive," he told the interviewer. "I'm gay...as a goose." When asked about the comment later in the interview -- during which he also denied a romance with Lindsay Lohan, his co-star in the upcoming Channel 27 -- Leto said, "I'm like Morrissey...I thought he was asexual?"

Here's what the people are saying:
"'Serious as a goose'? That certainly doesn't sound very serious. Especially when you think of the phrase 'silly goose.'" -- Meredith. Gawker
"Angela Chase [of My So Called Life] was right. Sometimes someone says something really small and it just fits into this empty place in your heart." -- Gawker
"My straight-guy writing partner and I chatted about it -- he thinks Jared's coming out is great for straight guys, and the reason is, well, typical for a straight guy." -- AOL Gay & Lesbian Blog: Worth Repeating
"Leto might be too smart to be straight -- he's sure to get lots of press from this one (convenient for his new band)." -- DMC, perezhilton.com
"I think it's for real. I've thought he was gay ever since I saw him with Scarlett Johanssen, locked in a public embrace, with her gazing up into his eyes...while he checked his messages." -- las, perezhilton.com
