And not just with him. JR Whatever he may have got right or wrong about Hephaestion, Stone took some very big liberties in making a jealous Rhoxane responsible for Hephaestion's death -- an idea for which there is no evidence or even speculation in the ancient sources, to my knowledge, although there is a pictorial tradition in which Hephaestion looks on rather scornfully at the moment when Alexander first falls in love with Rhoxane see the Rotari canvas pictured above.

Alexander the Gay?
Personal relationships of Alexander the Great - Wikipedia
Alexander the Great was known as a womanizer — his list of romances quite extensive. Researchers cannot make empirical studies to be sure about the thoughts and feelings of the people who lived in the times of Alexander the Great. At most, they can only make deductions from the historical records that are available. All that really exists is a puzzle, which researchers try to interpret and put together.

What was the REAL relationship Between Alexander the Great and Hephaestion?
Alexander the Great was a prodigy of warfare. A lethal fighter, before his 30th birthday he personally led the Macedonian army to conquer the Persian empire, the largest and most successful empire in Near Eastern history. His military tactics, logistics, and strategic vision will be relevant as long as human beings fight wars. But was history's greatest warrior also gay? Oliver Stone's movie depicts Alexander having affairs with two men in his new film about the Macedonian king.
We know that Alexander married at least three women during his short life: Roxane, Stateira, and Parysatis. However, that doesn't necessarily mean he had on-going, intimate relationships with all of them. In those days, marriage was a tool used to 1 build alliances, and 2 produce a male heir which Alexander did with his Persian wife, Roxane. Polygamy was the norm among Macedonian royalty.
