His sexual orientation was probably not on that list.
During their 49-minute show, Wilde asked Rodgers about the negative aspects of being a celebrity. Rodgers talked about how hard it was to always be “on” for fans, and explained why he did not like taking pictures while eating. He then addressed recent Internet rumors about him being gay, a subject Rodgers raised without being asked.
“I’m just going to say I’m not gay,” Rodgers said. “I really, really like women. That’s all I can say about that.”
Wilde, who was seemingly unsure how to address the uncomfortable topic, said he felt bad about hearing the rumors because it depicted being gay as something negative, but Rodgers continued with the conversation.
"There’s always going to be silly stuff out there in the media,” Rodgers said. “You can’t worry too much about. I don’t. Just keep on trucking. I think professional is professional and personal is personal. That’s just how I’m going to keep it.”
Now he can get back to questions about the 49ers.
