* A lot of heterosexual actors who have played gay characters, most notably James Franco, seem to enjoy the sexuality speculation that develops around their choices of roles and [[http://marquee.blogs.cnn.com/2011/01/06/james-franco-maybe-im-gay/ tease the media about it]] rather than outright dismissing the rumors. But even with those who are more transparent, there seems to be an awareness in Hollywood that [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday too much defensiveness and evasiveness]] [[ArmouredClosetGay only raises people's suspicions]], and so many straight actors who come up against these rumors manage to clarify them in a way that still shows their comfort with the gay community and how much they love their gay fans. (One notable example is DarrenCriss explaining in ''Out'' how as a musical theater geek from San Francisco, so many people automatically assumed he was gay that he essentially had to "come out" as straight.)

* In their introductory scene from ''Film/{{Clerks}}'', staunchly heterosexual (later confirmed to be [[ArmoredClosetGay deeply-closeted bi]]) Jay randomly to his HeterosexualLifePartner Silent Bob that he's "cute as hell" and wouldn't mind going down on him. He then [[GayMoment mimes this]], then realizes what he's doing, calls Bob a faggot and announced to no-one in particular [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday "I LOVE WOMEN!!"]]

* Taken to extreme extremes with Music/TheLonelyIsland's "No Homo." The characters all suggest doing increasingly homoerotic things such as hot-tubbing naked ("We're all friends, ain't no need for trunks!"), watching a gay porno ("..as a joke..."), having sex with men and coming out of the closet. But they're not gay, because [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday they said "no homo" afterwards]].

* LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}} is entirely straight, but by his own account, his humor is founded on nothing but dick jokes. He will use almost any opportunity to reference penises or gay sex -- e.g. using a word or phrase for it as an answer in a quiz or improv game, constructing a penis in a sandbox game, drawing one in a game that allows it...and so on. He and his male friends often engage in GayBravado with each other by making verbal or visual innuendos, pretending to flirt with each other, deliberately {{Ship Teas|e}}ing, or commenting on the attractiveness of male people or characters. And lastly, he is also a member of the above-mentioned D Club.

* Cloud's "flirting" with Barret in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', particularly during the early hours of the game when the two of them are duelling egos trying to out-masculine each other. Cloud seems less concerned with proving his own heterosexuality than he is in annoying Barret for his own amusement, though.

** In [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Ultros's]] storyline in ''VideoGame/MobiusFinalFantasy'', Ultros makes a fuss of calling Wol pretty and hitting on him, obviously insincerely ('did that creep you out?'). Wol calls his bluff by flirting back, grossing out the octopus, and forcing him to admit he actually hates muscleheads.

* Many of the comedians on ''Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou'' will flirt with each other, but probably the best example of this trope came during the [[OneSceneWonder extremely memorable episode]] where the position of chairman was taken by BrianBlessed, who has been in a heterosexual marriage since 1978. He spent some time alluding to being "a lovely bit of rough" for great stage actors and coming on to Paul, who eventually gave in to his advances during TheStinger.
