Ga Ga: Drew’s Ethnic Gay Boyfriends Wilson Cruz & Leonardo Nam in He’s Just Not That Into You


Now every single gal in a big city (at least according to Hollywood!) needs a trusting gay who will “tell her like it is!”

In the star-studded romantic comedy, He’s Just Not That Into You, Drew Barrymore is surrounded by a gaggle of gay co-workers who dish out their “queen-like” advice: from My So-Called Life alum Wilson Cruz to Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants stud Leonardo Nam.

Nam’s physical transformation from slightly chubby gaming fanatic to leading heartthrob (complete with abs, pecs and an insanely chiseled face) caught Blindie by surprise. His character even took Tamblyn’s character’s virginity–talk about upgrading from smoking pot to sex pot!

Up next for Nam: 2009’s He’s Just Not That Into You with Ginnifer Goodwin and Drew Barrymore.
