But it was his appearance on a gay beach last week that has raised the profile of this actor. In a way he isn't exactly thrilled about.
After The National Enquirer ran shots of the former star of The Young and the Restless in the buff on a nude in Maui, speculation ran wild around the sexual preference of Moore because, well, it was a homosexual hot spot.
But don't worry, ladies, this actor has no problem with gays. He just simply isn't one of them.
“I went on vacation with two girlfriends of mine who, interestingly enough, got cut out of the pictures,” he said. “We found a nude beach that, as far as I know, was a unisex beach.”
“I had two hot chicks with me who wanted to go skinny dipping… Thank God the water was fairly warm!”
So, we certainly aren't judging Moore, but it's interesting to note just how defensive he seems. Not only does the actor claim he isn't gay, he makes a point of mentioning he was skinny dipping with two chicks - sorry, two hot chicks - when the pic was taken.
You can decide for yourself. But if seeing Shemar Moore naked will help make up your mind, follow that link.
