Ben Whishaw Comes Out as Gay Man, Married to Partner

Ben Whishaw has confirmed that he is a gay man and that he is married to his longtime partner Mark Bradshaw.

Ben has never hidden his sexuality, but like many actors he prefers not to discuss his family or life outside of his work,” the 32-year-old Skyfall actor’s rep told the Daily Mail.

“Due to speculation, I can confirm that Ben and Mark entered into a civil partnership in August 2012. They were proud to do so and are very happy.”

“I feel in my heart that it’s important, but I don’t quite know yet the way to go about that. Maybe that’s the transitional thing I feel I’m in the middle of at the moment,” Ben previously said while playing a gay character in an off-Broadway play back in 2011.

    at this point I just assume that 90% of Hollywood actors and British actors are gay. even if they are married to women.

    I think Garfield will beat him to the punch. He’s been laying out a bunch of hints of late.

    @Fercat He would have gotten on with Jesse Eisenberg if that was the case.He just supports gay rights.

    @Superman’s GF: How is that making things dramatic? It’s usually the media and other people trying to pry themselves into the personal lives of actors. You have gossip sites that make a whole article about it.

    if he doesn’t like to discuss his life, then why the f*** he discuss it in tabloids

    Fercat Says:


    Maybe he’s just contractually obligated not to out himself yet.

    He’s still a great actor, gay or straight.

    For the love of God…Cavill is not gay.Cavill’s gay rumors derive from fake stories! I actually know someone who woks as a PR in multiple London Clubs and he confirmed to that henry is not gay.

    But if you want something juicy here it goes : Henry and Ellen Whitaker broke up with a huge public fight.Well at least she was fighting…he was trying to callm her down!

    @me: Nah, he’s a coward. Funny how really talented actors like Whishaw and Bomer are man enough to own their orientation and come out. I guess if you don’t have enough courage, honesty and talent you stay in.
