Asked about the gay rumors that have plagued his career, Hugh shrugged: "I think it means you've finally made it, right? You can't be in this business without [that] rumor." Hugh also laughed about an odd scene at one of Oprah's recent dinner parties - after a brief exchange with his host, Oprah turned to the rest of the diners and shouted: "Everybody stop! We're having the most interesting conversation at the table! Hugh, tell everyone what we're talking about."
