I think he lied so he wouldn't have to come out as gay.


He never officially came out but it was always a rumour. He claimed that he was never seen with anyone because he was overweight and found it hard to get anyone to be attracted to him. In the 60s it would have been extremely difficult for him to come out, so I think he was using his weight to his advantage to avoid any ridicule he got. Kind of sad that he would rather disparage himself than let everyone know he was gay.
