Tell Us A Straight Movie Moment That Technically Isn't Queer But Is Actually Queer As Hell

Here's to Debbie and Lou's intense eye contact in Ocean's 8.

If you're anything like me, you're part of the LGBTQ community and absolutely live for movie moments that are technically straight but have heavy queer undertones.


Like in Ocean's 8 — the eye contact and tension between Debbie and Lou after they pulled off the Met Gala heist was so palpable. Just look at them!!!

Warner Bros. Pictures

Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock confirmed to Digital Spy that their Ocean's 8 characters were never in a romantic relationship, but.......

And the scene in the diner when Debbie praised Lou with deep words of affection, and then FED HER in the coyest way.

Warner Bros. Pictures

And don't even get me started on this moment from Fried Green Tomatoes — when Ruth and Idgie had a playful food fight in the kitchen and were obviously flirting with each other? Like, come ON.

Universal Pictures

In the 1987 novel, Ruth and Idgie were in a romantic relationship with each other, but the movie adaptation scrapped that and only portrayed them as very close friends.

Whatever it is, we want to know! Tell us a straight movie moment that technically isn't queer but is actually queer as heck in the comments below.
