Is Jack Whitehall Gay and Does He Have A New Girlfriend After Gemma Chan?

Jack Whitehall is one of the most talented actors in Hollywood, so much that he can be described as a fluid actor who can fit into any role given to him. Thanks to this, he has appeared in many successful and award-winning films.

As the light continues to shine on his career, his personal life and sexuality have been brought into question. The reason for this is not too far to fetch; he has taken a role in Disney’s animation film Jungle Cruise, in which he is playing the studio’s first gar character.

For as many that have continued to follow the comedian, that was not the only time that people would find reasons to speculate that he may actually be gay even though he has been in relationships with women in the past.

What Is The True Sexual Orientation of Jack Whitehall?

Despite that many times people have continued to speculate that the actor may be gay, the truth is that he has a straight orientation. As indicated, what opened a lot of people into speculating on his sexuality is the role he has taken in the blockbuster film The Jungle Cruise, which is to release in 2020. He plays the supporting role of McGregor Houghton, the first Disney gay character.

More than just landing him the biggest paycheck in a career that has lasted close to three decades, the role which sees him appearing alongside great actors like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt, is a significant one in the history of film.

In his role in the film, Bad Education made it clear that he does not have any feelings for the opposite sex and would not date any woman. In real life, he revealed that it is a dream role for him even though he is straight.

As a result of this Disney has been dragged by some pundits who feel it was not right for them to offer the seven-digit role to a man who is straight as it would be more proper for a gay actor to play the gay role. Nonetheless, there are many others, including actors like Russell Tovey; a gay actor, who insists there is nothing wrong with a straight actor playing gay or the other way round. Stephen Fry is another gay actor who threw in his words in support of Jack Whitehall, stating that he has also played a straight man in movies more than a couple of times.

That said, Jungle Cruise is not the only reason why his sexuality has been questioned. His Netflix series, Travels with My Father has also made some people ponder on his sexuality.

The actor has not openly come out to make any statement on the question people have continued to raise on his sexuality or even the little controversy that arose with his popular Disney role, although the general belief is that he is, as mentioned, straight.

Looking at his love life, Jack Whitehall has gone out with some of the most beautiful faces in the show business. His most known relationship was with actress, Gemma Chan whom he dated for six years before they parted ways in 2017.

The duo first met on the set of the drama series titled Fresh Meat in 2011. From then on, they seemed to be well cut out for each other, maintaining great personal and professional lives. The couple lived together in Notting Hill.

Just when fans had started anticipating an engagement or even more, the relationship hit the rock as the duo called it off toward the end of 2017. According to some speculations, their busy schedule was the main culprit in their breakup. According to Dailymail, they continued to be friends and have remained supportive of each other.

Who Is The New Woman In His Life?

Since his breakup with Gemma Chan, she has moved on and is now in a relationship with The Devil’s Double actor Dominic Cooper. They made their relationship public in December 2019 when they made an appearance at the British Fashion Awards afterparty as a couple. They met while working on the thriller Stratton in 2017 and then in the summer of 2018 the rumors had started going around that they were already dating.

On his part, Jack Whitehall now seems to be single and with no new woman. However, after breaking up with Gemma, he was briefly linked to Kate Beckinsale who was married to Len Wiseman for more than 10 years.

In 2019, he was linked with  American heiress and socialite, Paris Hilton. The two flirted on Instagram and were spotted together a number of times. However, nothing has been said about them since April 2019.
