Matt Bomer Shoots ‘White Collar,’ Talks About His Kids, Recalls ‘Guiding Light’ Stint [PHOTOS]

March 20th, 2011 // 15 Comments

Matt Bomer played co-host with Hoda Kotb on Today yesterday morning, where he revealed that White Collar will return on June 7. Matt also talked about his three kids.

Yep, his kids. He has three of them. Kit, Walker and Henry. There is much speculation about Matt’s personal life, but that was not touched upon during the hour that he co-hosted.

Matt also recalled his role on daytime television. He’s debut on All My Children, and his rather psychotic character on Guiding Light. This is how he summed up his Guiding Light storyline:

“I played a trust fund baby, who turned to male prostitution when he lost his trust fund … because what else can you do? All my clients were cougars and then I went crazy, killed several people and committed suicide in a log cabin in front of my girlfriend after I confessed that I’d been molested in seventh grade by my female teacher.”

After he finished up on Today, he went straight to work on White Collar. He’s seen here shooting with Tim DeKay.

    I dont think he’s homo. Cause if he adopted all three kids, the media would have shone light on it. I hope he’s not. That would kinda ruin his charm

      His husband, Simon Halls, used a surrogate to have the kids (through the “Growing Generations” service). http://www.wmagazine.com/celebrities/2008/02/growing_generations
      I think it sucks that one would say that Matt being gay would “ruin his charm.” That’s why actors like Matt aren’t forthright about their situation in the press even though they are obviously openly gay in real life.

      Ruin his charm? Why because you thought you had a chance with him if he were hetero? Sorry to burst your fantasy bubble, babe. I doubt you have a chance with him whichever way he swings.

      Totally agree wid u both…its so sad dt ppl r so cheap like dis asshole Kara….dt they consider sexual identity n choices over emotions nd sm1′s true charactr……although i also hav a huge crush on Matt & when i got to know dt he’s gay, i totally broke into tears…bt dat doesnt stop me frm loving him,……coz i consider a person’s heart n charactr d most important…nd evry1 knows dat Matt is a vry vry gud person wid a clean n golden heart…..no matter whether he’s interestd in males or females….i truely respect his emotions n views……4 me, he’s simply perfect. <3 <3 :O

    that would ruin his charm? still have a long way to go in this country ;(

    Those are his step sons not biological, he adopted them they are the sons of a female publicist he had a relationship with, and he is not gay, he is too masculine, you can’t find any trace.

    Straight or not, doesn’t matter one bit.I still would like to see him play the sexy, wealthy, cowboy Shay Westover in my thrilling 1960s love story, Samson And Sunset. Shay is so sexy an cool headed, he can bring an 18 wheeler off a steep mountain road with no brakes, and ride and tame wild horses. Then he meets Callie, a feisty, firey, smartmouth, from the wrong side of the tracks, he is smitten. But it takes a little trip over Shay’s knee for a good spanking to tame her without breaking her spirit. This great love story will make you laugh and cry, and show you that real marital love does still exist. Native Texan, Matt Bomer is the perfect Shay Westover.

      WOW….no wonder he stays in the closet publically….not one comment about his acting/entertaining ability. We may have come a long way since the 50′s….but got a long way to go.

    The man is perfection! Such ignorant comments Kara and Irene.

    Who cares if Matt Bomer is gay. He does his job extremely well and is the best looking man I have ever seen. Everyone says he is very nice and a good person and that is all that counts. We still have along way to go in this country. Straight or gay it doesn’t really matter.

    I am just so smitten by Matt Bomer. He’s super talented and the most handsome man I’ve ever seen. I must admit I was disappointed when I first learned that he’s gay (back in 2010) but I was way outta line to feel that way because he done nothing wrong. I got over it quickly because he’s just too irresistable (did you see how adorable he is during interviews? I did ). I am going to be a fan of his for a long, long time ! Best wishes to you Matt.
