Exclusive: Craig Ferguson Addresses His “Gay” Character In How To Train Your Dragon 2

Published

Dreamworks How To Train Your Dragon 2 is full of comedy, action and thrills … But one thing that might catch movie goers off guard is the film’s reference to homosexuality.

In the fantasy flick, Gobber, the voice of late night host, Craig Ferguson, made a direct comment about his sexuality. “This is why I never married. This and one other reason,” the animated character says. So, during an interview with Ferguson to talk about the sequel, HipHollywood got straight to the point and asked the star about his character’s sexuality.

“I think that the implication would be that he is [gay]. I think, maybe more will be revealed later on,” Craig responded.

Co-star, Gerard Butler chimed in, “When I heard that in the movie I actually thought he was just missing a very vital body part which never gave him the confidence [to get married]. In Viking times, probably nobody wanted to marry if you don’t have your thingamagig.”

According to the director, Dean DeBlois, Gobber is indeed a gay man and while watching the film, Dean says it’ll take audiences a moment to realize, like, ‘Did he just say what I think he said?’”

DeBlois added, “Because I’m a gay man, and I don’t draw attention to myself for that reason. It’s just a fact of who I am, and the way the world is, and it’s nice to treat it as just a passing notion that isn’t something that people have to get so up in arms about.”

How To Train Your Dragon 2 is in theaters now.

    What? Who gives a flying fuck if the character is homosexual. It’s pretty important for kids to learn that not everyone likes the same things and it’s completely fine and natural to be gay.
    And if you think otherwise, you are an idiot.

      Maggot is a apropos. Anyways, we all have to tolerate your stupid gay-mafia trash. but we dont have to accept it or like it. You scum confuse tolerate with accept. Your HIV hepatitis culture and predation of children is sickening. You are NAMBLA scum and normal people everywhere will have to fight to keep your kids away from predators like you.

    I will not take my children to see a movie where animated characters are gay. Let’s be honest, this movie has bombed because no parent in his right mind would support this movie.

    Wow, another attempt to bring SEXUAL PERVERSION to the children. The Hollyweird Pedophiles never miss a beat in their recruitment drive, do they?

    Jesus effing Christ

    It is a fucking defect to be gay, nothing “normal” about it. Stop jamming it down everyone’s throats everywhere. This is sick.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
