Actor Matt Bomer revealed in a new magazine interview, that he and his partner have been married for three years, further breaking the hearts of men and women alike.
The Magic Mike star came out at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards in 2012 and now he tells Details he and publicist Simon Halls wed the year before. The couple shares three kids, six year old twins and an eight year old.
Meanwhile, Bomer will portray a gay man dying of AIDS during the early days of the epidemic in Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of the play The Normal Heart, which will premiere May 14th on HBO.
Larry Kramer’s play was important to the actor when he was a teenager – because it helped him understand the health crisis that has since claimed so many gay lives.
He tells Details, “At that time, I was clueless and obviously in a different place in relation to my sexuality. I was in romantic relationships with girls – whatever that means at 14…and it completely rocked my world… It’s just an amazing call to arms. On some level, Larry (Kramer) probably saved my life… I wouldn’t have a lot of the rights I have today if it wasn’t for people like Larry.”
