Matt Bomer wants the world to know he’s gay. The ‘White Collar’ actor made the announcement at a humanitarian awards event in California over the weekend.
Matt Bomer, 34, is a rainbow man and proud of it. The private actor proudly came out after receiving an award for his activism against HIV/AIDS at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards on Feb. 11, reports the Daily Mail.
In his acceptance speech, he thanked his partner, Hollywood publicist Simon Halls, and their three children.
“I’d really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry,” he said. “Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment.”
Matt’s announcement came as a surprise since he’s been rather evasive about his personal life. When asked about his sexuality in a 2010 Details interview, he said: “I don’t care about [rumours] at all. I’m completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life.”
We guess he might as well come out publicly, especially now that he’s co-starring with Channing Tatum in the upcoming Steven Soderbergh male-stripper movie, Magic Mike.
For gay men everywhere, his six-pack would be pretty magical eye candy. Yummay!
