Del Toro sponsors gay addict

Benicio Del ToroBenicio Del Toro showed up Friday at the Gay Men’s Health Crisis Center in NYC for a meeting for methamphetamine addicts, according to the New York Post. A source told the paper that Del Toro stood up and spoke to the crowd, saying, “Hi, my name is Benicio. I am not an addict, and I am not gay. I am here to support my friend.” The source also said, “Benicio is a sponsor to a guy who looks a little bit like Patricia Arquette. They met when Benicio was doing research for his druggie role in Things We Lost in the Fire and kept in touch. Benicio is now his sponsor. But it’s weird because usually sponsors are people who have been through the 12 steps and can coach you through them, not some guy who’s just famous. But I guess it’s sweet.”

    I am not an addict, and I am not gay.

    Ya okay, look in the mirror buddy. If anyone looks like a gay addict its Del Toro. Maybe its the other way around; his guy pal probably came with him for support!
