As newirishman said, could those of you claiming he is "definitely gay" please explain how you seem to know better based on hearing him being interviewed?
And here is another twist in the tale. True, they are not a gay couple, but one of the men is gay. (Irish news media, the men said, reported that the two are straight and never thought to ask whether one of them is gay.)
Murphy said he had always been gay, and he has had long-term relationships in the past.
His heterosexual husband was fully aware of this.
“What does it matter, if we’re friends and it works for us?” O’Sullivan asked. His husband agreed.
“When I was in relationships with men before, it was always the friendship that was the most important thing for me,” Murphy said.
