Matt Bomer Has Just Jared On His Heart -- Exclusive Interview

Matt Bomer holds up a coaster before chatting in an exclusive interview at Comic-Con!

Here’s what the 32-year-old White Collar actor had to share:

JJ: How has your life changed since the success of White Collar?

MB: Well, to me, it’s so great that the people are responding to the character in the way they are and I’ve been working in the business for a long time playing lots of different roles, so there is obviously something about the writing and the role. Something that I’ve tapped into that thankfully people seem to be responding to. My life hasn’t really changed at all – I still put on the same t-shirt and jeans every morning and just go to work and do my thing. I think as an artist, you’re always hoping that people respond to the stories you are doing and I’m just grateful that people seem to be enjoying White Collar.

JJ: I think it has something to do with you wearing hats…

MB: (laughs) it probably does have something to do with the hats and the wardrobe as well.

JJ: Are you as fashionable as your character is?

MB: I’m not into shopping – I’m really more of a T-shirt and jeans kinda guy! I get out of the shower and go about my day. But spending so much time with Neal and getting to be dapper on a daily basis definitely rubbed off on me to a certain extent. I try to make an effort when I go out.

JJ: You just did the hot shoot for Entertainment Weekly, showing off quite a nice body. What are your workout rituals?

MB: My work out plan is get to the gym when humanly possible, which actually isn’t that often, I’m sad to say. I do about 70 hours a week on the show, so I just fit it in when I can and I try to eat healthy in the meantime.

JJ: What can you share with us with the upcoming season of White Collar? (SPOILER FROM LAST SEASON!)

MB: We still have the same fun procedural element, there is also the great woody dancer that goes on between all of us. In terms of Neal, with Kate dying at the end of last season, he’s really taking some darker turns and is sort of hellbent, so I am going to do some new things with the character.

JJ: Any upcoming guest stars?

MB: Yeah, we have a lot of fun guest stars coming up. We have Hilarie Burton come on and plays a character who has an old axe to grind with my character so we are constantly at each-others throats. There is also a flirtation sort of sexual tension between us as well.

  • Terry


  • Question

  • http://j ivanka

    i thought at first sight he was joe jonas lol

  • OanaERO

    Too bad he’s gay. Oh well..

  • Ken

    I love the silly haters who make stupid comments on what is the hottest and most talented new star in show business. Matt could be bald and where a sack and still be the best looking guy on the planet.
    @ Slig – not sure which 3rd world back water you come from but I recommend English lessons before you post.
    @Kaz – Joe Jonas or any of us on our best day wouldn’t look as good as Bomer on his worst day.

  • Stace

    dreamy and sex on a stick – please more matt jj!

  • Alaia

    Is it me or do glasses make people look sexier?

  • Cindy Kramer

    @ OanaERO — like anyone of us have a chance with this stud anyway – get a life? I find it even better that he is so hot and gay.

  • susie

    So wearing glasses makes people sexy? Who knew. I have some nerds in my some college glasses that wear glasses. They must be hot too LOL.

  • murry

    Matt really awesome, he’s a perfect guy!!!
    i love him so much!!!

  • Rob

    Perfection has its price.All the bored, jealous blog crawlers posting negativity on about the nicest (and hottest) guys in the business.As mentioned above,we we should all be so lucky to look as good.And Suzie, yes you do need your eyes examined.

  • K. Potter

    Thanks for the interview, Jared. Matt is tremendous!

  • Geoff

    Comicon was a great idea for Matt.We all know he is major talented,handsome,sweet, etc., who knew he was so much fun!

  • dots

    This man is perfection! I love how he went a little “Neal” and wore that hat! It really suits him! And those glasses, man, who knew a guy could look that hot in glasses!

    Thanks so much JJ for Matt, more please, as always! ;-)

  • BBW

    @ Geoff: His hardcore fans knew he was so much fun, but it’s definitely good that that got out to more people.

    And Jared! You lucky bi*tch, getting to meet Matt in person. I LOLed that you asked him about his workout routine. I think Matt’s idea of not getting to the gym “often” and other people’s are probably different. I’m also sensing crunches and pushups on a daily basis, whatever he might say. ;)

  • closeted *****

    His fans are SO flippin annoying!

  • Geoff

    @BBW – count me as hardcore now – just went…

  • OanaERO

    @Cindy Kramer: Get a life? Why? Am I stalking him? Do I look desperate? Am I spending most of my time on the internet complaining about which hottie is gay and which is not? I don’t think so. And I don’t blame him for being gay. I think it’s great that he is, and this goes to all the good looking guys that are not straight. It’s just.. too bad. Oh and about that chance at him or any other stud: you can never know..

  • OanaERO

    ..If they were straight, that is.

  • BBW

    @Geoff: LOL Good to know. I’ll see you over there. ;)

  • Fanlady Sharon

    Mr. Bomer always presents himself in as a refined, well-educated and charming individual during interviews. It is impressive that he remains genuine and modest despite his surge in popularity. He has a wonderful rapport with his fans and has demonstrated that he knows how to relax and have a good time at these fan based events. His infectious personality really had a chance to show through in the dance video from Comic Con. It is a sham that there are boorish inarticulate individuals that feel the need to post hurtful comments.

  • Redmond

    @closeted – ‘flippin’ – is that a word? I suggest that if you don’t like Matt’s fans then you should avoid comment sections in articles about him, it’s really that simple. Although if you really watched his great show or saw him at a charity event or watched how wonderful he interviews then you’ll find it’s really quite difficult to avoid being his fan as he is about the nicest guy in hollywood. His movie idol looks don’t hurt either :) Thanks for the post JJ – can we please have one a day?

  • Kate

    Why so delicious Matthew?There can never be enough Bomer in the word.

  • Blahzae

    I love how if an actor is good looking he must be gay!!!
    So annoying. Untill there is a cover of People Going Hey guess what Im gay just assume they are straight and save yourself alot of time guessing because it isnt worth it.

  • wonderette

    @Blahzae: …But he is gay. He’s with Simon Halls and they’re raising children together. And that’s pretty widely known. He shouldn’t have to have a cover announcing it, no one should for that matter.

  • Dee Dee

    @wonderette: I agree Wondrette about not needing a stupid People cover.

    He’s gorgeous and talented. Thanks for the interview Jared.

  • gleeeeek
  • Faith

    @Slig: @Kaz: Are you guys retarded?

  • Mia

    Ugh I can’t stand him. His nonchalance and lack of any charisma rubs me up the wrong way.

  • Jose

    @Mia – Wow – you are overly senstitive, you may want to have that checked! You can’t stand someone this beautiful, talented, charming,educated, etc. I guess Matt is a little ‘high brow’ for some less fortunate folks – you must be the type of woman that likes the Chris Browns of the world.Question though, if you can’t stand him, why are you going to the trouble of reading articles and making comments about him.I suspect you are the same person making all of he negative comments on here, just changing your name.If not, you are but a tiny, tiny group that does not find him the bomb!

  • Perry

    @Mia: Do you have a pulse?I guess you must not of watched this video and missed Leno the other night.
