Matt Bomer Speaks About Landing Roles in Hollywood After Coming Out

Matt Bomer is looking so suave in this new feature for Mr Porter‘s The Journal.

Here’s what the 39-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On if he’s faced discrimination in Hollywood after coming out: “I’ve had some rough experiences, but I’ve also been blessed with generosity of spirit and artistic openness that maybe some people won’t ever get to experience because of who I am, so I can’t complain. The artists that I want to work with don’t have stigmas anyway.”

On labels in Hollywood: “I think labels are a dangerous thing. As an artist, the last thing you want is one label to identify you. You want to be able to have complete freedom over your identity.”

On his kids: “I so desperately want to be friends with my kids. We have a lot of fun together, but there are times when I need to set a boundary. They’re all different, their levels of affection are different, what they need is different. They come into the world as their own people and you’re just trying to give them the structure to be their best selves and to find their way in the world.”
