Matt Bomer: Too Happy To Admit He’s Gay

January 13th, 2010 // 26 Comments

I’m typically a sucker for the intelligent, tan and single types. You know the kind… that tall glass of water that has a certain swagger with every move he makes. Nice dresser, smooth conversationalist, easy of the eyes, with a sprinkle of Texas charm. (His dad is ex-Dallas Cowboy’s player John Bomer).
Enter Matt Bomer. You may not know the name, but that face is enough
Matt is the lead in USA Network’s White Collar and though unable to have any big breaks in the past, his new hit show just got picked up for a second season.
Thanks to People magazine, Matt was also named “Sexiest Rising Star of 2009″ and although he’s no Cory Monteith or Mark Salling, I can’t deny this boy is pretty.
Now, if only we can put a rest to all of those gay rumors. Matt slyly avoids admitting his sexuality (and Perez Hilton‘s man crush on him) by saying, “I’m completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life.” 
So whether gay or straight, I also happily appreciate a man with flowy hair, a  flawless wardrobe and manicured eyebrows any day. God bless Texas.

    Shouldn’t the headline read: “Too happy to discuss gay rumors”

    By saying “admit” you’re making it definit and that’s pretty inappropriate.

    Anyway, I don’t give a fuck if he was indeed gay.

    First, Cory and Mark are nice but aren’t even in Matt’s league. Second, he is making the smartest professional decisions of his life. Out and proud in daily life, but avoiding the tragic hollywood typecasting that occurs with public admission that is absolutely no ones business. Great actor and person too, so glad he is getting the fame he deserves!

    If he wasn’t so fuckin hot, I wouldnt care if he was gay. I’m just saying; this really ruins my chances of sleeping with him………>=(

    I dont care if Matt is gay as long as he is happy, but until he actually says he is gay or straight I think everyone should leave him alone and let him enjoy his ride to fame. White Collar is one of my favourite shows and Matt is absolutely brilliant so lets just give the guy a break and let him be who he is. Gay or straight I LOVE YA MATT :)

    THE ONLY GUY in TEXAS THAT IS HOT! And I am born and raised here. I don’t care if he’s gay or not, he make us proud of his great work and good looks. LIKE I SAID HE’S THE ONLY ONE THAT CAME FROM TEXAS AND ACTUALLY LOOK GOOD!! Love you in some White Collar.

  9. Desiree

    Matt’s not gay. For goodness sakes, I’ve noticed him checking women out even during shots ( of white Collar).

  10. Alanna

    Mr. Matt Bomer’s NOT GAY. Apparently, there’s been some sort of misunderstanding/mistake; I’ve confirmed this from SOURCES (not Matt) who know him personally.
    And, (as I’ve read someone-else saying) just cuz he doesn’t have a girlfriend, doesn’t mean he’s g**.
    These rumours are only used to quench people’s thirst for celebrity news.

  11. Alanna

    And the pics which are supposed to prove that Matt is g*y, could be a childish mistake on his part; or- he looks quite drunk to me & a bet possibly, in this state??? & the rest is completed by the other guy who must really be, well, g*y.
    So for those fans who are in a quandary as to what to believe about him – REST ASSURED, MATT”S NOT G*Y.
    For those of U who’ve not heard,he’s even very politely asked to take down those pics from the internet as they mar his character, and he needs a good reputation for success as an actor.

  12. Flame

    HONESTLY, I’M SURPRISED AT HOW GULLIBLE PEOPLE CAN BE.

    HOW CAN ONE BELIEVE AN ACTOR IS GAY , & IS ACTUALLY INVOLVED IN A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS/HER PUBLICIST / AGENT ? THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A MAJOR SCANDAL & MATT WOULD HAVE BEEN KICKED OUT FROM HIS ROLE OR PROBABLY LOST HIS REPUTATION & HENCE HIS JOB FOR A REALLY , REALLY LONG TIME. HAVING A GOOD REPUTATION IS AN IMPORTANT PRE-REQUISITE IN THIS INDUSTRY.

    THOSE WHO THINK HE’S G*Y, CHECK THE NET – THERE’VE BEEN PEOPLE(ACTORS) WHO’VE BEEN REJECTED FROM A ROLE ONLY BECAUSE OF A BAD REPUTATION. SO THINK, BEFORE U BELIEVE; THIS ATTITUDE OF PEOPLE’S IS DAMAGING SOMEONE’S CHARACTER; WHICH IS VERY UNFAIR. THANKFULLY,:- 1.) THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO SUCCUMB TO SUCH RUMORS &
    2.) MR. BOMER DOESN’T GIVE A s**t .
    GO MATT, YOU’RE THE BEST !!!!!

  13. Maysie

    Yup. It’s a con. Matt is 1000% straight.

  14. will

    i realy dont give sh.t one way or another . i lov the show . get over it people . they just wish they had a chance . if he says it his self then i will beleave it

  15. Irene

    I respect and love gay people nothing against them, I have many gay friends. That’s why I can’t believe he is gay he acts super straight, and I just don’t want him to be gay that will crush my fantasy, I love him, oh please that can’t be true! :(

    • Lorraine

      Wow. How old are some of you people that you so desperately need the guy to be straight? Assuming that were true (it’s not; deal with it and move on) what actual chance did any of you thnk you had with him? Were you planning on stalking him or something? What delusional thinking.

      And btw–if it so “doesn’t matter” whether or not he’s gay, why can’t he be allowed to say so out loud? It’s not as if that admission means he’s next required to reveal every aspect of his personal life. I am always deeply suspcious of fans who rush to “protect” closeted actors from the world’s curiosity. It strikes me that it’s not the actor you’re protecting so much as yourselves, trying desperately to avoid learning details you’d rather not know.

      And finally, who says coming out would be a career killer? This attitude has become such an article of faith that even people who mean well believe it, with little or no real evidence to back up the claim. What sexy A-List or On-the-cusp-up-and-coming Star has ever come out and had his(her) career trashed for it? Name one person.

    This is excellent news. :] He should be proud, it’s LOVE. You can’t ever go wrong with love.~ Orientation shouldn’t matter, be who you are and love yourself for it. People who have issues with this. Just need to learn how to appreciate others in general. Matt’s completely brilliant. So is his personality. Love ya doll, live free.~

    You guys are such a trip. He’s gay, married to Slate Publicist Simon Halls (no, Simon is NOT Matt’s PR) and they have three little boys: Kit, who’s six and 3-year-old twins Walker and Henry. Matt’s talked about them on the Today Show, been photographed with him, and there are many photos out there of Simon and Matt at various events.

    I don’t get what people expect from him; do they want him wearing a big I AM GAY slapped across his forhead? Gay is his sexuality, not his life, personality, or job. And if people think he’s playing a convincing straight conman on White Collar, well triple kuddos to Matt for being a great actor!

  18. VC

    Gay. Straight. Does it really matter? Pretty is pretty, and talent is talent. I adore Matt and White Collar…the man can wear a suit. :) I don’t understand this feeling in the public that a man or woman has to come out of the closet and tell everyone “YES! I’M GAY!” It’s their life…let them live it how they choose. If he’s happy and enjoying his success, more power to him. And if he is gay…makes no never mind to me. I’ll still watch White Collar every week and drool over the hotness. Being gay does not negate the fact that Bomer is a fine specimen of eye candy…and has the acting talent to back it up.

    His stride is definitely “gay.”

  20. Janie

    I can’t lie. I hate that he’s gay… totally puts my crush on him in the toilet. why oh why God are all the fines one guy. I wish he was normal and straight (I know I said normal, lol, it’s just to pick fun at some of you who would love to tear me apart for saying it).

    But honestly it really does suck that he’s gay, it takes away from his straight sexy man appeal. Now I’m going to see him as gay man who sleeps with and kisses men instead of as a hot stud that loves that ladies.

  21. RJ

    Oh Janie, get a life. Good looking IS good looking!

  22. TiSa

    I don’t know and I don’t care. As I know, he mentioned his three kids. If he’s straight, gay, or bi, and so what? It’s his own business, not ours. lol. I just believe what he said, and i will hear about any issues of Matt Bomer just from Matt Bomer himself. If he keeps private about his personal life, that’s his right and only he has the right to tell about his personal life. I respect whatever his life choice and I still love his beauty and talents. However, he’s so talented in acting, singing, etc., and I think he doesn’t want his carreer as an actor/singer, irritated by people’s comment. Just respect him no matter we agree or disagree about his personal life, carreer or anything about him.

  23. christal johnson

    has any one other than TiSa considered that Matt Bomer is bi? not that it matters, because he’s a hottie and none of us can get that lucky to have him.
