Joel Creasey, Fame Whore, Outs AFL Player!

Joel Creasey with boyfriend Jack Stratton-Smith.

Well… he doesn’t name him, but Aussie Comedian Joel Creasey has recently revealed he had a sexual affair with an AFL football player. “It always makes me laugh when conservatives say, ‘There aren’t any gay players in the AFL.’ As I mentioned, I live near Etihad Stadium. I can assure you, there are – I slept with one.

“I’m not in the business of outing people either, though. And we only slept together a couple of times. But I always did love the juxtaposition of him coming over after a game to me lying on the couch watching The Devil Wears Prada. He had a great sense of humour and would understand the ridiculousness of the situation, too. And he’d always laugh when I asked him, “How did your football concert go tonight? Did you get an audience?”

Joel spoke to DNA about other stories for the book, Thirsty: Confessions Of A Fame Whore…

What can people expect from your autobiography?

There’s lots of celebrity stories about me and Joan Rivers, Carrie Fisher and people like that, as well as stories about my childhood. It’s just an honest book about my life. I never had any struggles growing up so it’s not one of those Aussie battler stories. I have a gorgeous family in Perth and I try to give a different perspective on being a young gay man in the Australian entertainment world.

There’s a great story in the book about an encounter you had with a Sydney Swans football player at an airport.

Oh yeah, I was queuing up behind this Sydney Swans player for a coffee at the airport lounge and he turned and said, “I’m not signing autographs today.” He obviously thought I was a fan but I didn’t know who he was. Then a supporter, wearing a Sydney Swans scarf came over, tapped me on the shoulder and said in front of the entire queue, “Excuse me, are you Joel Creasey? I saw you on TV last night. I think you’re really funny!” The shocked look on this footballer’s face was hilarious.

Another Sydney Swan you’ve interacted with was Barry Hall on I’m A Celebrity… Is the bromance still going?

I haven’t seen him for a while as he’s just had a baby with Lauren Brant (from Hi-5) who’s another good friend. We’re still mates and he’s such a nice guy. People got the wrong impression of him. He loves the gays and I had a beautiful conversation with him about how disappointed he was in Jason Akermanis, who said some very homophobic things. Barry just gets it.

In the in-depth interview with Matthew Myers in the latest issue of DNA, Joel also talks about the psychological damage of the same-sex marriage postal survey, how he really feels about fellow gay comedians Josh Thomas, Tom Ballard and Nathan Valvo, and introduces us to his current boyfriend, model Jack Stratton-Smith.
