The star of 'The Normal Heart', who came out as gay two years ago, confirms in the latest edition of Details magazine that he married his partner three years ago.
Matthew Bomer actually has been married to his partner Simon Halls for three years. The star of "White Collar" confirms the news in the latest issue of Details magazine in which he promotes his upcoming project, Ryan Murphy's TV movie adaptation of "The Normal Heart". Bomer and the Hollywood publicist have 6-year-old twin sons and an 8-year-old son.
Bomer opened up about his sexuality when he accepted an award at the Desert AIDS Project's Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards in Palm Springs in 2012. "I'd really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry. Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment. God bless you," he said back then.
Bomer plays a man with AIDS in the new movie. In the magazine interview, the actor mentions the original play's writer Larry Kramer for his contribution to promoting equal rights, including same-sex marriage. "I wouldn't have a lot of the rights I have today if it wasn't for people like Larry," he says. "I just wanted to be involved with the project in some capacity. I didn't care what my part was," he adds of joining the movie cast.
The 36-year-old star also reveals that he consulted with doctors, had a 14-day alkalized-water, juice, tea and enzyme cleanse and talked to his "Magic Mike" co-star Matthew McConaughey to prepare for his role following the Oscar-winning actor's experience with "Dallas Buyers Club". Bomer, who lost 40 pounds for the movie, shares, "He called me and walked me through what he did. It was very generous, but I took a slightly different path."
