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.
