Matt Bomer spoke to E!‘s Marc Malkin about this low-key ensemble flick that comes out Friday. Magic Mike, I think it’s called? Bomer gave a fantastic interview, recalling what key advice co-star Channing Tatum gave him for one particular scene. ”Channing told me, ‘You have to use the stretcher and just get up on this girl and grind your junk in her face,’” he said.
We’ve certainly pre-ordered our tickets, but will Bomer’s three kids – with partner Simon Halls – be able to catch dad in all in glory? Hell no, Bomer confirmed. ”But one day when they are old enough, they can watch it,” he added. “I’ll be able to say, ‘Hey, your old man used to be in shape. He might not be anymore, but he used to be in shape. Now, go get me a beer.’”
While promoting the film, Bomer touched on the importance of being comfortable with who he is. ”I had somebody from the military approach me a few weeks ago just saying how this helps people, affects people,” Bomer said “It brought me to tears.”
In February, Bomer spoke at the Desert AIDS Fund event in Palm Springs. ”What we really have to do is stop the adjective before the job title—whether it’s ‘black actor,’ a ‘gay actor’ or ‘anything actor,’” Bomer said to the audience. “Everybody thinks that equality comes from identifying people, and that’s not where equality comes from. Equality comes from treating everybody the same regardless of who they are. I hope the media and the press catches on to that because it’s time to move out of 1992.”
Mmm so dreamy, that Matt Bomer.
