In a recent interview with Out Magazine, the actor took the time to explain why his latest film is one he holds so close to his heart.
Lucky for us, he’s offering up even more information. This time, about his lovely family.
Celebrity weddings always create a buzz amongst all of us fans. Bomer and his husband, Simon Halls, decided to keep the ceremony very intimate. He referred to the event as “very chill, very small.” The happy couple were surrounded by their “nearest and dearest.”
Raising children and attempting to live in the very public eye can be taxing. Attempting to combat any at-home misconceptions, the hunky actor shared, “I felt a responsibility to Simon and to our kids to be able to live with integrity and not have some strange split psychology of ‘This is who my dad is at home, and this is who he is to the public.’”
It’s very clear that he’s enjoying fatherhood immensely. Being a parent can change a person and I would say it changed him for the better. “There’s a level of love that really dissolves a lot of egotism and self-absorption,” he explained.
The Normal Heart has affected him more than any of us probably could have predicted. Matt spends time gushing about the project – his Out interview was no exception.
Even he had the opportunity to view the story – and maybe even life – in a different light. “It wasn’t until I read Larry’s work that I had any kind of understanding as to what was really going on in the world around me. It just lit this fire in my belly.”
