These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Ho Yay: With Laurence Olivier and many others. The Ho Yay was real — Marlon Brando admitted having homosexual affairs and said he was "not ashamed". In response to reports that he and Jack Nicholson were lovers, he reportedly said "may they continue to do so. I find it amusing."
The Woobie / Jerkass Woobie: He was undoubtedly a very difficult person but his last few years were not at all happy. His son murdered his daughter's husband, said daughter later committed suicide, and his son was getting in more and more trouble before dying in 2005.
