Gymnast Louis Smith would strip for a gay magazine

British Olympic gymnast Louis Smith is straight but he said he would gladly strip for a gay magazine because he's become something of a "gay icon." The gymnast, competing on Britain's "Strictly Come Dancing," told the Mirror:

“I get lots of attention from females as well as males. It’s a bit strange. ­Apparently I’m a bit of a gay icon. I’d go topless for [the English gay] Attitude magazine. I’m not a shy guy when it comes to getting your kit off and taking pictures.

“I know I’m not fat and won’t look offensive, so it’s fine.”

Smith also said he would do underwear ads, but wants to be paid well for it. I think it's cool Smith knows what Attitude is and he's certainly confident enough in his looks to show off.
