Matt Bomer Secretly Married Partner Simon Halls Back in 2011!

Matt Bomer Secretly Married Partner Simon Halls Back in 2011!

Matt Bomer is his usual smoldering sexy self on the cover of Details magazine’s May 2014 issue, on newsstands April 25.

Here’s what the 36-year-old The Normal Heart actor had to share with the mag:

On his secret marriage to partner Simon Halls in 2011: “I wouldn’t have a lot of the rights I have today if it wasn’t for people like Larry [Kramer].”

On his role in The Normal Heart: “It’s rare that you get to be a part of something that, hopefully, has some significance socially or historically. And then to have a role that changes you? I think that’s the best you could hope for in this profession, and that was certainly the case here. I don’t think I’ll ever be the same as I was when I started the job.”

On who he’d like to work with: “I mean, I hate to even identify certain people, because I don’t want anyone to feel alienated. I want to work with anyone who’s passionate about telling a story. I obviously have a list of people I really love, but it’s a really long list. So I cant single anybody out. You know you don’t want to forget to say ‘Darren Aronofsky’ and then have him happen to see something here and be like, ‘Why didn’t the asshole say me?”

    He is just ridiculously beautiful. I know watching his role in TNH is going to break my heart.

  • pure love

    Is so good to read this story made of love.

  • Nan

    I just adore him. Wish him nothing but the best.

    The headlines with “secretly” in them always make me laugh like they should put up a big sign and an arrow on the day – getting married, over here!!! I am thankful there are people who are inclined to keep private things as private as they can.

  • noi

    the whole idea of marriage is to let everyone know, there is no such thing as a secret wedding. it’s hilarious!! and it’s a gay thing, doesn’t evne count becuz it’s not legal. trying to term it as legal is a stupidity. it’s a disease and it needs to be get rid of.

  • Leah

    Smoking hot! No one like him. A role model for all, gay or straight!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME!!! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, it works if you try enough!!! Also look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

    @noi: you are one stupid bithc…don’t like it, head to Russia or Africa with the other ignorant tools. Homophobic idiots no longer welcome here.

  • nina


    If you really think about it the whole idea of marriage is commitment which is moot in today’s day and age. No one is obligated to tell anyone how they shd deal with their personal love life. It’s harmful thinking like yours, an ability to hate someone based on a harmless detail, that is a disease and need to become extinct or cured just like cancer, anti-semitism, cannibalism, racism etc.

  • nina

    Finding inspiration in showbiz is rare but Matt Bomer you inspire me. Hope to see you in lots and lots of movies, theatre, tv…We need MORE of you!

  • @nina and trevor

    and homo.s.e.x.uality. it needs to be extinct as well. and it’s people like u who are fools. who think it’s ok! that everything is ok! it’s not. and i don’t have homophobia, it’s simply something you can’t possibly comprehend. requires brains and religion. something that is diminishing just becuz people like you think that it’s out dated and not relevant. becuz it provides guidelines to live life, but people like u don’t understand it’s importance becuz people like u blv in lving FREE and without boundaries. no laws, no limits. only what suits u. happy living!

    @@nina and trevor:

    The human race as a whole will all live happier when you & your fellow close-minded fools all die off. It’s happening, thank God, just not soon enough.

  • nina

    @Thomas: I don’t wish you to die as I didn’t wish death on the other person but I do wish that whatever ideas that instill this need to hate in you do die s they will I know as all hateful idea do.. Every century has target hate groups and people like you who need to hate but they never last thank humanity. There is lots of evil in this world, loving someone that you don’t approve of, isn’t one.

  • Mejay

    It’s not so much your ignorance that offends me; because everyone is ignorant about something. What offends me is that you are so justified and blindly adamant in your ignorance. Then to say you are not homophobic…ignorance is not bliss friendo.

  • Regina

    Big news – troll slithers from under rock after a bit in the form of noi/thomas. Best news, silly religious views rapidly disappearing. The world needs less religious bullsht and more role models like Matt Bomer. His being the hottest human alive and becoming a big star doesn’t hurt either.

  • Lena

    I think it is great that Just Jared is running this story while the Michael Egan v. Singer, et al story is also claiming the headlines. I don’t know who Matt Bomer is, but it’s nice that we get to see a story of love and commitment in the homosexual realm balancing the allegations of abuse of power in the Egan lawsuit allegations which has its unfortunate roots in the Hollywood gay community. A story of love to balance a tragic story of abuse of power.

    With regard to the folks chiming in to condemn gay marriage or gay legal unions, I will say this. I have always thought it very curious how a group of people (certain heterosexuals) can say to another group of people (homosexuals), “I have decided FOR YOU, that you should not be able to love who you are biologically and/or mentally predisposed to love and who freely and voluntarily is biologically and mentally predisposed to love you back…oh, my word… excuse me…look at the time…. I’ve got to run and get home to MY FAMILY. Well, have fun going home to your empty home alone. chuckles chuckles snicker snicker. Who me? Oh yeah…What a silly question. Of course I have someone waiting for me at home. Of course I have a wife and/or husband (unlike you). Why would I deny MYSELF that pleasure in life? Sure, I don’t think YOU should have that. But, with you, it’s different. See, I feel that it’s not NECESSARY for you. But, for me… well, it’s my God given right to be happy…”

    (sarcasm intended)

    It’s always interesting how heterosexual folks always love to decide for gay folks whether or not they get to get married. Yep, sorry…gay folks…no wedding cakes for you! We had a vote, and we decided that’s what WE want for YOUR lives… Somehow that does NOT seem right to me. I get to get married as a straight female. I can’t imagine going through life without that opportunity. I think it is awful this joy is denied to a group of people. Just based upon the desires of another group of people wanting to take control over and boss them around. It’s nonsensical and illogical to me.

    At one time interracial relationships were illegal. Homophobes are of the same mind set.

  • Thomas


    Sorry, Nina! That response was meant for NOI, the hateful bigot, not you. My apologies.

  • Interstellar

    He is the most gorgeous man ever! Love him and so happy for him and his beautiful family.

  • noi

    o! u ignorant fools. let the time come and it will be clear that u were all wrong. no religion = animal kind of living. so be animals all u want. and THOMAS, everyone will die. no one will live forever. but i don’t wish upon anyone to die not even on my enemies.. u have not been enlightened. live like fools, ignorance is not bliss indeed NINA, is all i can say. happy living!

    Other actors should really follow Matt’s lead on how to carry themselves in life.

  • nina

    @Thomas: Sorry Thomas! Glad I came back to check on this page. The nameless coward writing under someone else’s name caused the confusion. Typical! Sorry my rant went in your direction. Peace:)
