Joel McHale gay? The rumors have been swirling for awhile now, but as far as the witty comedian is concerned, there's no offense taken. In fact, he's flattered.

In an interview with The Advocate, the host of “The Soup” and star of “Community” talked about how people think he’s gay because he's so well-dressed.

“I still see that on Twitter every day,” said the 41-year-old personality. “It’s flattering. I always find it really weird when guys flip out over someone thinking they might be gay. If a guy gets offended by that, there’s something’s wrong with him. I take it as a compliment.”

And that’s not all. He’s not afraid to talk about other guys.

McHale, who’s been married to his wife, Sarah Williams, for 17 years and has two children, told the magazine that he has a list of male crushes, including Josh Gad, Brian Williams, Kobe Bryant and Chaz Bono, saying that he’s “not picky.”

Other male celebrities who have taken gay rumors in stride are Matthew McConaughey, Matthew Morrison, James Franco and Channing Tatum, who recently joked that he wants to have sex with George Clooney
