Movie star JENNIFER TILLY suffered the ultimate betrayal when one of her ex-boyfriends turned out to be gay.

The actress, who is now dating professional poker player PHIL LAAK, admits she should have seen the signs when she started dating her gay ex, but she was too smitten to notice.

She explains, "I suspected something because he opened his eyes while we were having sex... I thought, `Maybe I'm not sexy enough.'

"I was so excited because he was really into me, and that should have been my first clue. Gay men are so thrilled. They think I'm the funniest person in the world.

"He would help me get dressed. He cared about my image. And, instead of sex, we had deep conversations."
