“Skyfall” Actor Ben Whishaw Comes Out As Gay, Announces Marriage

Ben-Whitshaw-2123722There have been gay rumors about rising actor Ben Whishaw ever since he starting making his reputation in films like Perfume, Skyfall and Cloud Atlas.

But the handsome Brit has been cagey about his sexuality—until now: Last night, through a publicist, Whishaw released a statement about his 2012 marriage to husband Mark Bradshaw.

‘Due to speculation, I can confirm that Ben and Mark entered into a civil partnership in August 2012. They were proud to do so and are very happy,” Whishaw’s flak explained. “Ben has never hidden his sexuality, but like many actors he prefers not to discuss his family or life outside of his work.”

Ben met Australian composer Mark  in 2009 when they worked on the film, Bright Star, together.

In a previous interview, Whishaw defended his dodging the issue: “For me, it’s important to keep a level of anonymity. As an actor, your job is to persuade people that you’re someone else. So if you’re constantly telling people about yourself, I think you’re shooting yourself in the foot.”

Why the sudden revelation? Could it have anything to do with the fact that the new Doctor Who is going to be revealed tonight? Squeeee!
