Does John Cusack Have A Wife, Girlfriend or Gay Partner?

John Cusack does not have a wife or girlfriend but has dated a few women in the past. The American actor, producer, screenwriter, and political activist has largely kept details of his love life private, but we know that he has never been married. He is also not believed to be gay, as he has only dated women in the past.

Is John Cusack Married?

John Cusack is not married. The Con Air actor is known to have dated a few women in the past, but none of these relationships ever led to him walking down the aisle and entering into a marriage contract.

Cusack’s marital status does not appear to be changing anytime soon, as he has said that “society can’t tell him how to live his life.” The actor also doesn’t want to be like many other Hollywood stars who get married and end up getting divorced. As a result of all of this, he restricts himself to just relationships and takes great care not to overexpose these romances in order not to doom them.

Is John Cusack Gay and Does He Have a Gay Partner?

John Cusack is not gay, and so does not have a gay partner. Suggestions that he might be gay arise from his decision not to get married or have details of his love life in public.

Far back in 2009, during an interview with Elle Magazine, Cusack was asked directly about his sexuality, and he confirmed to the interviewer that he was not gay and had never been. Evidence of Cusack not being gay can be seen through his rich dating history that includes some of the biggest actresses in Holywood. He has been rumored to have dated Uma Thurman, Meg Ryan, Britney Spears, Kate Beckinsale, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
