And as mentioned above, Luca has already played in two movies as a gay man which is why there have been rumors about him being a gay man.

However, Luca (@lucaargentero) being a gay man is nothing more than speculation. Yes, Luca is not gay and is totally straight. Just because he played the role of a gay man multiple times does not mean he is or might be gay. Some actors are known for their signature roles and it seems the audiences are pretty impressed with Luca as a homosexual man. However, he is a very well-established actor and can fit into any role he gets.

Not to forget, Luca has been married twice to women which further indicates he has never been gay. After a five-year relationship, Argentero married actress and voice artist Myriam Catania in July 2009. After almost 7 years of marriage, the two stars divorced in 2016. According to some sources, the cause of the separation was related to Luca's connection with Cristina Marino on the set of the movie, Christmas in the Caribbean. Later, the rumors turned out to be true.

Since 2017, Argentero has been engaged to Cristina Marino (@cristina__marino). He met Cristina while filming Christmas in the Caribbean, in which they both starred. The two stars have always stated that their relationship began after Luca's marriage to Myriam Catania ended.

Luca Argentero and Cristina Marino announced their first child's arrival in December 2019. Cristina and Luca welcome their first daughter, Nina Speranza Argentero, in May 2020.  On June 7, 2021, Luca Argentero and Cristina Marino got married surprisingly in Città Della Pieve.

Therefore, there are enough pieces of evidence to prove that Luca Argentero is not gay. He is totally straight and has been living a happy life with his wife and child. He just seems to be very good while doing a role of a gay man. Considering the fact that he has been cast as a gay man thrice now, we can expect him to play the role again in the upcoming days.
