Christopher Mintz-Plasse Girlfriend/Wife
Although he is very active in social media and covers everything from his dog to his music band, Chris remains very mysterious when it comes to his love life.
Fans may have wanted him to go out with his Kick-Ass colleague Chloë Grace Moretz, but Chris never did, but offstage they remained close friends.
In September 2016, Chris sparked a controversy over his sexual orientation when he uploaded a picture of himself kissing a man behind religious banners protesting against homosexuality. Many quickly came to the conclusion that this was Chris’ way of coming out. However, he described the man in the picture as his best friend and forced others to believe that the star was just showing his support for gays.
The Mintz class did not say for sure whether he was gay or not, so fans just had to speculate. His dating history with women is also not accessible to the media.
