Oscar winning actor Benicio Del Toro shocked the gay community when he made an unexpected appearance at a Gay Men's Health Crisis Centre during a meeting for methamphetamine addiction. Pagesix.com reports Del Toro stood up to address the crowd saying: 'Hi, my name is Benicio. I am not an addict, and I am not gay. I am here to support my friend.'
A source said: 'Benicio is a sponsor to a guy who looks a little bit like Patricia Arquette. They met when Benicio was doing research for his druggie role in 'Things We Lost in the Fire' and kept in touch. Benicio is now his sponsor.
'But it's weird because usually sponsors are people who have been through the 12 steps and can coach you through them, not some guy who's just famous. But I guess it's sweet.'
