This closeted A list mostly movie actor who should have won an Academy Award this past year has a non-beard beard that he uses now when he is hooking up with other men.
She is one of the very few people the actor trusts 100%.
When he is with another guy, she is always around.
Not participating or anything, but to make sure there are no interruptions and to make sure the other guy does not do anything or try and take photos.
The added benefit our actor gets is that it looks like he is with a woman.
