13 Celebrities Who Love Their Gay Brothers

Brotherly love at its best.

It always warms our hearts to see celebrities embracing their LGBT family members, like when Max Carver shared his support for his twin brother, Charlie, when Charlie came out this month.

Here are some of our favorite stars and their gay brothers.

  1. Max Carver and Charlie Carver


    It’s clear that the Carver twins have an unbreakable bond: They’ve been acting partners since their debut in Desperate Housewives, going on to work on popular shows like Teen Wolf and The Leftovers.

    When Charlie came out, Max was there to publicly support him, tweeting “love you always.”

  2. Colton Haynes and Joshua Haynes


    Even before the Arrow star came out himself, he was very close to his brother, Joshua, and Josh’s husband, Scott. Their daughter, Wren, refers to Colton affectionately as “Uncle Coco.”

  3. Chris Evans and Scott Evans


    The Avengers star’s brother played gay cop Oliver Fish on One Life to Live, and popped up on episodes of Law & Order, White Collar and, most recently, VH1’s  Hit the Floor.

    “They’re the funniest people I know,” Chris said of his brother and his friends.. “[Scott looks like me], but he’s about an inch taller and about four shades tanner than I am. He’s a very fit young man. Believe me, he does quite well for himself.”

  4. Colin Farrell and Eamon Farrell


    Colin Farrell was best man when his older brother, Eamon, wed boyfriend Steven Mannion a few years back. The brothers are apparently quite close: Colin even paid for the wedding and helped pick out the rings.

  5. Kevin Smith and Don Smith

    “I know my brother; he’s a great guy—goes to church, doesn’t screw anybody over—and yet he’s still got some religious yahoos and politicos over to the side going, ’Change your ways; you’re going to hell!'” the Clerks director told Piers Morgan about his older bro, Donald. “Stay out of my brother’s bedroom, buddy.”

  6. Anne Hathaway and Michael Hathaway


    In 2010, Anne Hathaway told British GQ why she’s no longer Catholic:  “Well, the whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out. Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?”

    The Les Miz star told told Modern Bride that her favorite wedding moment ever was when Michael married his partner, Josh: “At one point, he and his husband were standing up there, and my mom got up to sing,” she recalled.

    “She was just beaming straight love into them, and everyone felt it, and it was just this really beautiful moment.”

  7. Ariana Grande and Frankie Grande

    The social media star and his pop-star sister are best friends—to the point where she ran his Twitter account while he was in the Big Brother house.

  8. Adam Levine and Michael Levine

    “I can single-handedly dispel any ideas that sexuality is acquired,” the Maroon 5 rocker told Out in 2011. “Trust me: you’re born with it. My brother [Michael] is gay, and we knew when he was 2. We all knew.”

  9. Jordan and Jonathan Knight


    Back in the 1980s and early 90s, teenage girls threw themselves at both the Knight brothers, who were part of the hottest boy band of the day, The New Kids on the Block.  Jonathan revealed he was gay in 2011.

  10. Ryan Kwanten and Lloyd Kwanten

    “[Lloyd] was probably about 18 when he came out, and I can wholeheartedly tell you that from the day that he did, he was a changed man for the better,” the True Blood star told the The Advocate in 2010. “The sheer beauty of who he is really came through”

    And Lloyd, now a doctor, didn’t have a tough time coming out to the Kwanten clan. “My parents always encouraged an open channel of communication,” says Ryan, “so we talked about that and everything else.”

    The Pretty Woman star has been a vocal ally to the LGBT community and cites his brother David, an AIDS activist and UCLA professor, as an inspiration. “My brother is gay and he got married in that brief period when gay marriage was allowed in California. He has two great kids and is a wonderful father.”

  12. Chloe Grace Moretz, Trevor Duke-Moretz and Colin Moretz


    “My gay brothers were treated horrifically until they grew up and understood how to deal with it,” The Carrie star told Seventeen magazine about Trevor and Colin. “I will delete you and I will block you, and you will not be a part of my life if you ever say anything bad about my brothers.”

  13. Madonna and Christopher Ciccone


    In addition to being Madonna’s brother, Ciccone worked as a dancer, stylist, director and interior designer for the Queen of Pop.

    The two have had a falling out in recent years, unfortunately, exacerbated when Christopher released his scathing memoir, Life with My Sister Madonna, in 2008.
