Other than Paddy Considine and Daryl Hannah that is. I feel so encouraged and empowered knowing that Paddy and Darryl Hannah are... but none others? I feel like there must be more... see I'm a movies guy. That's my primary thing. Films.

You can be assured many more have it than you`d think.

However coming out is only possible for those that are very secure in their career. As saying you have a condition with social impairments isn`t gonna have you being considered for the top roles in hollywood.


Anyhow one that comes to mind, is the main girl cyclon from the caprica tv series.

I've heard Keanu Reeves is suspected to have it, but i've never seen an official statement.

No, no. Dan Aykroyd is just plain bizarre. He fancy himself a paranormalist and builds machines to take to aliens.

But let's give him credit at least he's not a Scientologist.

I mean he's still f*****g awesome, you know, cause he's Dan Aykroyd.
