Matthew Bomer

Ridiculously Handsome Gay TV Actor

Matthew Bomer, born in 1977, currently stars in White Collar, a crime drama on the USA television network, but he is a veteran of film and stage work, as well. He is one of the handsomest men working in entertainment today. Bomer is an out gay actor in a committed relationship with publicist Simon Halls, who has three surrogate children: Kit, Walker and Henry. Earlier this year Bomer mentioned their three children on nationwide TV while co-hosting the Today Show with Hoda Kotb.

Bomer and Halls attended the most recent Golden Globe Awards and were seated next to each other; however, they did not walk the red carpet together. Bomer wears a wedding band to signal his committed relationship.

Even though he has not denied his homosexuality, he does not discuss details of his sexual orientation, in part because he does not want to be anyone’s poster child. He wants to concentrate on his career, his partner and raising their children.

Texas native Bomer was working in NYC as a hotel bellhop ten years ago when 9-11 happened. When tourists stopped coming to the city, he auditioned for a part in a soap opera in order to earn money to pay his bills. The rest is television history. White Collar, in which Bomer plays a reformed con man, debuted in October, 2009, and has been renewed for a third season.
