This story is getting sillier by the minute.

There's a rumor going around that a famous A-list actor who has been described as a "womanizer" has contracted HIV, known it for years, and said nothing despite living a "playboy lifestyle" because he "doesn't want people to hate him".

Supposedly he has (has?) injected drugs and the list of women he has slept with includes "an award-winning actress, a religious movie star, a top Hollywood personality with a controversial past, a TV star, a media personality and a glamour model."

Supposedly it is a secret even though some people know -- one website even claims to know but refuses to give out the information for "ethical" reasons -- but they will tease you enough to get the clicks.

Supposedly the original source of the information is a famous football player who is down on his luck and has felony convictions but is trying to make a buck.

Nobody will tell us who it is, but a list is assembling of who it is allegedly NOT.

You ready for this? The following famous male actors do not have HIV or AIDS, according to the Internets:

  • Tom Hanks
  • Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Colin Farrell
  • Bradley Cooper
  • Brad Pitt
  • George Clooney
  • Eddie Murphy
  • Keanu Reeves
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt
  • Tom Cruise
  • Bruce Willis
  • Matt Damon
  • Michael Fassbender
  • Ryan Gosling
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt
  • Robert De Niro
  • Liam Neeson
  • Tom Green
  • Benedict Cumberbatch
  • Liam Hemsworth
  • Tom Hardy
  • Russell Brand
  • Jeremy Renner
  • Zac Efron
  • Sean Penn
  • Jake Gyllenhaal
  • Richard Gere
  • Hugh Grant
  • Liam Neeson
  • Daniel Craig
  • Robert Downey Jr.
  • Ben Affleck
  • Johnny Depp
  • John Travolta

I mean, Tom Green is on the list. Wasn't this supposed to be of world-famous A-listers?

Vincent Chase of "Entourage" isn't on here. Neither is Lightning McQueen. No Pixar characters are actually. When was the last time Buzz Lightyear was tested?

I love how in a town that can't keep a secret, this is such a secret, and we are allowed to know someone fitting this general description exists, but not know who. We know who is ain't though.
