Jay Leno Apologizes For Gay Jokes About OLTL Alum Ryan Phillippe


Tonight Show host Jay Leno put his foot in his mouth during a recent interview with One Life to Live grad Ryan Phillippe. Reese Witherspoon's ex stopped by the talker to discuss his new backdoor draft movie Stop Loss and of course Phillippe's groundbreaking role as OLTL's Billy Douglas, the first gay teen on soaps, came up as a punchline. Leno asked Phillippe to give his best "gay look", with the actor declining to play along. Today Leno apologized to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) for his "dumb" remarks. What I want to know is when are celebs going to start realizing how insensitive their thoughts are before letting them spill out of their pie holes?
