Matt Bomer may have come out publicly two years ago, but there’s one secret he’s kept until now — he’s married! The Magic Mike actor revealed in this month’s issue of Details magazine that he’s been married to partner Simon Halls for the past three years.
Discussing his latest role in Ryan Murphy’s TV movie adaptation of The Normal Heart, in which he plays a gay man dying of AIDS during the early days of the epidemic, the actor acknowledges the original play’s writer Larry Kramer for helping pave the way for gay rights.
“I wouldn’t have a lot of the rights I have today if it wasn’t for people like Larry,” Bomer told the mag. One of those rights, of course, is same sex marriage. The mag reveals Bomer, who has 6-year-old twin sons and an 8-year-old son with Halls, married the Hollywood publicist back in 2011.
