Matt Bomer is a Paper Person

White Collar hunk Matt Bomer is featured in Paper Magazine‘s new “Beautiful People 2010″ list. Here’s what the 32-year-old actor shared:

On researching for his character (an ex-con whose sentence is commuted in exchange for helping the FBI put away other criminals): “I watched The Hustler, The Sting, and To Catch a Thief. But I also tried to throw in a little bit of Ferris Bueller and Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours. I like characters with flaws, who have shadow.”

On quitting his high school football team to join a production of A Streetcar Named Desire: “I used to drive down at the end of the school day, do the show, do my homework during intermission and drive an hour back to Spring to go to school the next day. (The footballers didn’t object.) I think they understood that this was what I wanted to do with my life. (smiles) If I had been the All-State quarterback, they would have had some objections to my playing the young collector in Streetcar.”

FYI: Matt is wearing a blazer and pants by Calvin Klein Collection and shirt by Converse by John Varvatos.

  • pup

    Uber attractive.

  • Kristen

    He is beautiful but this list was celebrating quirky, eccentric, unconventional beauties. He is symmetrically, classically good-looking and sort of doesn’t fit in the list.

  • :P

    @Kristen: i agree but who cares lol

  • jgjg

    too bad he’s gay

  • Mary

    jgjg- U wish he was gay!! Stop hating…He is PERFECTION! Why can’t most men look like that!!!

  • Eden

    He’s gorgeous! Too bad he’s unavailable to us ladies :) I wish him and his partner all the best. He’s SO pretty. Wow

  • K.L.

    Such a beautiful man! Mmmmmm~

  • mgmt

    He’s nothing special, talent-wise.

  • British Latin American

    @Kristen: Don’t you mean Paper likes to call ordinary people who just happen to have fame beautiful? Why be such a downer?

  • Mel

    Matt Bomer is a hottie and a fun actor.

  • liz

    soo pretty *sigh*

  • Grason

    He has redefined HOT in America. And BTW, he is an excellent actor according to the vast majority of critics. He has created one of the best new characters on TV…

  • Rocky

    OMG! He is soooo freakin HOT!! LOVE WHITE COLLAR!!

  • ava

    Love the black and white photo. But why are they blurring his hands?

  • James

    assume he was waving hands

  • Kate

    Matt is beautiful and I would love to see his hands too :)

  • Ken

    Matt is in a word – perfection. Not sure he fits this mags definition but whatever, any pic or article on this dreamy guy I am thankful for…he ‘s got to be one of the most beautiful humans on the planet, male or female.

  • gorgeous

    @Mary: Umm sweetie, you DO realize Matt Bomer IS openly gay, right? How sad that you took that as an offence. He is very happy in his personal life, grow up.

  • CTegan

    @British Latin American: Ordionary people? What is ordinary? Plain? Because Bjork and so many others featured in PaperMag most certainly are not “ordinary”. PM has a specific grasp on pop culture that interests me, maybe because I am a typical Art student that is drawn to eccentrics and quirks and things that are a little less black and white. Btw, I ADORE Matt. He is perfection. I also was amused he was in the List.

  • facepalm

    @Mary: “stop hatin’ LOL wow. You think that poster was hating by saying that he is gay? Which he is. Wow. He is beautiful, what does his orientation have to do with anything.

  • BenS

    Matt never been in – always out and about, and for last few years happily married. One of the sweetest guys you’d ever want to meet…amazing smile and eyes are only a bonus.

  • British Latin American

    @CTegan: That’s correct, honey, plain or okay-looking. Its only because of their fame that they are ‘beautiful.’

  • Brian

    @gorgeous Actually the “openly” part is clearly not the case as part of being open would involve a public acknowledgment of the fact – according to society. His team have always said “no comment” (which is pretty obvious what that means haha) but it is common knowledge he is dating a high profile publicist Simon Halls, and raising three kids with him. If I am not mistaken, Matt had 3 kids with his ex girlfriend who he left her for his current boyfriend. Correct me if I’m wrong and the seperation was mutual.

  • LOL

    @British Latin American: You are incredibly shallow.

  • JRD

    He has scary wide pop-out eyes when you see the close-ups of his face and his acting is mediocre at best.

  • BenS

    @Brian – your last sentence on ex-girlfriend is a total fabrication. He never dated women, never had kids of his own – put that ridiculous lie to rest here. He is raising Simon’s kids with Simon, no more no less…

  • Simpson

    @jrd – Your view of beauty is quite questionable as most would agree he is a paragon of beauty. Luckily for Matt virtually all TV critics disagree with your take on his talent as well. The show and his talent have been universally applauded. and actually the business end of hollywood is quite a buzz about the fact that he has been showered with scripts for his review and choice since white collar began. Matt is finally getting the attention he and his talents deserve. However, you sound like you have an axe to grind our some sour grapes there, or are you just a bitter old queen – maybe all 3?

    @LOL: So, I guess I’m right then!
