Matt Bomer on Gay Rumors: 'I Don't Care'

White Collar stud Matt Bomer talks to Details magazine about rumors that he’s gay. Here’s what the 32-year-old actor spilled:

Does it bother you that so much of what’s been written about you is speculation that you’re gay? I don’t care about that at all. I’m completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life.

But you don’t want to talk about it. I have a network and a show riding on my shoulders. I would say a big difference between my character and me is that I can be too trusting. And I’ve realized in this business, that’s not necessarily the smartest thing to be. I definitely have a thing or two to learn from the con artists.

White Collar returns with a new episode (“Hard Sell”) this Tuesday (January 19) @ 10PM ET/PT on USA Network.

I really get tired of those kinds of questions being asked. Why is this even an issue? An actor’s sexuality has nothing to do with their acting. He’s a great actor. So, why can’t people focus on that and that alone and leave his personal life out of it?

Yes he’s gay, but I don’t care. I love the show and he’s awesome. He is very handsome with blue eyes and a beautiful smile.

Matt IS gay. He is dating Simon Halls, a publicist and raising 3 kids with him. For years he dated some guy in NY too. Gay. No doubt. Deal with it.

Because people feel they need to know everything about all celebs. I find it annoying. If he’s gay or not shouldn’t matter. But people love to gossip.

# 5

Good for him for not caring. Why is it anyones business but his own.

# 6

this news really boring which about gay rumors.

# 7

So that’s a blatant ‘yes’ – in the style of Ricky Martin.

# 8

I love how he’s polite and answers the question without really answering. I don’t care that he’s gay, in a relationship and has kids with his partner – those things don’t get in the way of my heterosexual fantasies of him. He’s treat to see on White Collar. Absolutely delicious.

ask about the movie or tv @ 01/15/2010 at 12:49 pm

What busines is it anyways.. Would Billy Bush like it if they asked him..
or if they asked Shaun Robinson if she was a tranny?? It is no one’s

Gay rumors are so last year…who cares, if he wanted us to know he would tell us. Just like Beyonce refused to comment about her marriage to Jay Z, he has the right to keep his personal life personal.

I thought he was openly gay? Why not comment about it now, unless he is being told not to?

I really can’t wait for us to get over this ridiuclous witch hunt of who’s gay and who isn’t. And unfortunately Jared, you’re not helping the situation. The sooner this stops been a “news” story the sooner people realize been gay is just who someone is. This is tiring…


YOU ROCK!!!! ITA!!! Who gives a crap if he’s gay or not, I think he’s great and the show is awesome!

Good luck with your projects, Matt!

His acting skills are average. But he’s pretty enough to make up for it.

Gay or not I loveeeeee this guy! Wish him all the best!!!

duh! he’s a mediocre actor, he needs his fangirls

hes still hot and the show is great

Who Cares @ 01/15/2010 at 4:00 pm

that’s his bussiness and who cares if he is or not. gosh, people grow up and get over it. plus he is wayyy gorgeous!

Who cares if he’s gay or not.
Matt is drop dead gorgeous.

Matt Bomer is a very good actor and I can’t wait to see more of him :)

Aaww his last answer make it seem like he’s been badly hurt. I hope he doesn’t get **** for his sexual orientation, nobody should have to go through that.

Wow, most of these comments are really refreshing. Lots of “Who cares? He’s hot” which is a big advance on so many of the “HE DIDN’T SAY HE’S GAY, SO TAKE THAT BACK!!11!!!!” comments which I’ve seen posted about other gay actors by so-called ‘fans’.

I guess Bomer can’t really stay in the closet after those pics of him Frenching an old flame surfaced. He may yet come to find that that was the best thing that ever happened to him. At least he won’t have to live with the constant fear that people will ‘find out’. Everyone already knows, and most people (including most of his fangirls) don’t give a rat’s ass.

I, for one, am happy, because I’m looking forward to seeing lots of his lovely self in TV and movies in the years ahead, and now the ‘Industry’ won’t have an excuse not to cast him.

“I don’t care about that at all. I’m completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life.”
I wish that to all gay actors and entertainers.

So JJ, is Matt Bomer your new crush?
