That muffled sniffling you hear is the sound of straight girls crying about their shattered dreams of bedding Matt Bomer. The White Collar actor came out this Saturday at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards.
Matt received the New Generation Arts and Activism Award for his work on the fight against HIV/AIDS. In his acceptance speech he thanks Simon Halls, his partner, and their three children. “I’d really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry,” he said. “Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment.”
While this isn’t exactly news to Hollywood insiders (his partner Simon is a very well-known publicist), it’s the first time Matt has openly acknowledged his sexuality. Not that Matt Bomer and sexuality are alien to each other. Have you seen this man in his ridiculously hot Elvis gear?
