Matt Bomer Gay Developments! Yay Gay!

As you know, Matt Bomer came out several days ago by thanking his lover, Simon Halls, and their kids while accepting an award.

Yes, he did a Jodie (though he was more specific than she was and also hopefully won't drop the ball on this and never mention it again).

He also apparently did a David Hyde Pierce and let OK magazine mention his lover and kids in an article about him.

Woo-hoo!

And all I can say is ... he must have read my very recent blog about how the stars of the upcoming movie of The Normal Heart had better come out since the project is about how "silence equals death"!

Even the straight ones should come out as gay, lol!

And Matt was in the reading of the play about Prop 8, too, so I'm glad his activist-laden projects are now matched with more openness.

(PS: He's doing the play again -- with George Clooney!)

"I love him, love him, love him, and I am so proud of him," Bomer's White Collar co-star Tim DeKay told E!'s Marc Malkin.

"He's just a fantastic individual and I thought he did it in a very classy, elegant and eloquent way."

Added DeKay, "I can't imagine how many guys or gals were out there going, 'If he could do it, I could do it.'"

Looks like Bomer's hit a homer.

I love how these articles keep referring to the man he's raising his children with as his "lover". Pretty sure partner or husband would be more accurate than a term that makes him sound like a fuck buddy.

Good actor, handsome man, will probably become a movie star.

Let him handle his life the way he wants and that seems to be just what he's doing, in a natural, "What's the big deal?" sort of way.

 Coming from a straight woman of a certain age, he is still one of the handsomeist most gorgeous boys I have ever seen and I wouldn't throw him out of bed if he farted...gay?  so?

very disappointed.  Thought he was the hottest thing out there.  Really shattered my image of Neal.

Matt has always been out and open about his relationship, just never acknowledged on public forum until now. They have always hosted charity events together, done award shows and upfronts together.He's never bearded nor denied his orientation. Atypical class act and amazing role model for gay and straight peeps. I hope he avoids the tacky People Mag and peddling his kids on mag covers. And no, Jim Parsons is no more out than Matt previously was.

To his credit, Matt has been quite open & public about his relationship with his long-time lover and their family. I believe they were married before the Prop-8 ban was enacted.

And what about Jim Parsons? He's in Normal heart too. Maybe he'll come out when he does "Harvey" on Broadway.

Nice. But like you say, he now can't drop the ball. He has to say it in an interview--maybe People magazine?

Good Lord, these comments come over as silly. He's exactly the same person in looks, personality and talent as he was before this was announced all over the media. Why would it shatter your image of "Neal"? "Neal" is still straight, and Bomer plays him as such, beautifully, I might add.  If you have a problem accepting that now, that's a limitation of your imagination, nothing to do with Bomer.

It's called acting; such a stupid straight 17 year old female comment. He's still the hottest sexiest man on tv. Hope you don't watch vampire Diaries, Hawaii 50, How I met Your Mother, and most other shows with closeted gay actors in lead roles. Don't even go to a movie! Many images will be shattered if you are that fragile.

Yes, but "being open" and actually saying it are apparently two different things and now he's said it. Rosie O'Donnell was open with Kelli years ago by going places with her, but when she said it on the record, it took it to another arena.

I'm sure he will acknowledge it properly, probably in an interview (although NOT in a rag like "People", I would hope) in the next few months, and he'll most likely talk about his experiences in some depth in relation to making "The Normal Heart".  That said, I hope it doesn't become the dominant topic of conversation either with him or about him. He deserves to be known first for his talents and charitable work (and, okay, looks) first, i.e. as an actor who happens to be gay, rather than a gay celebrity who also acts.

Why? Does he turn straight if he doesn't talk about it

I have read SO many comments like Linda's. Weird. When has a fangurl from some small town EVER married a movie/tv star??? I mean when has this ever happened in the era of celebrities? So bizarre.

Hey there was no need to be harsh. She was simply expressing her regret. Thats why we respond to these after all, to let the writer know what we think. I for 1 agree wholeheartedly that he is hot and sexy. So i am equally disappointed.

We don't insist that people hammer us with being "openly straight". Why should it be different for gays? Do you want him to wear a big scarlet "Q" on his sweater?

Cassandra

Bullshit! He's in the glass closet. He lives a gay life, but has never actually said it. Listing his boyfriend in a list of names without stating it's his boyfriend is not being out.

 I don't see why he has to acknowledge it in an interview.  He is handling it perfectly.  He is just being himself which requires NO confirmation or denial either way.  Just living his life.

Ulu

No, but it would be nice to acknowledge it in interviews (or at least one interview) rather than do what Jodie Foster did--thank "my beautiful Cydney" at a luncheon, then run from any followup.

Goldie

Why are you disappointed? He's *still* hot and sexy, and your chances of getting with him 'in real life' haven't been changed one jot by this news.  Just feel free to use your imagination.
