Matt Bomer came out publicly as a gay man while accepting an award at the Desert AIDS Project’s Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards in 2012.

After that, fans assumed they knew everything there was to know about the handsome actor, but there is one thing that Bomer has kept a secret … until now.

During a recent interview with Details magazine, Bomer shocked his fans once again by revealing that he is married to his partner Simon Halls, who he has three children with, and has been for three years!

The Magic Mike star also talked to the publication about his newest role in Ryan Murphy’s film adaptation of the play The Normal Heart. In the film, Bomer plays a gay man dying from AIDS. He credits the author of the play Larry Kramer with helping pave the road for gay rights. “I wouldn’t have a lot of the rights I have today if it wasn’t for people like Larry,” Bomer said.

Bomer explained that he had read The Normal Heart when he was in high school, and when he heard that there would be a film, he wanted to be involved in any way possible. “I just wanted to be involved with the project in some capacity,” he said. “I didn’t care what my part was.”

While Bomer had his doubts about landing a role in the film, Murphy did not. “Matt was the first person I felt would do whatever it took to be true to the history of the part and to the millions of people who have died because of this disease,” Murphy said. “I needed somebody who was a protector of that. That meant going on a really dangerous, incredibly severe diet and going to a dark place emotionally.”

Bomer lost 40 pounds for his role with the help of his doctors and a14-day alkalized-water, juice, tea and enzyme cleanse. He also received tips from his Magic Mike co-star Mathew McConaughey, who lost 50 pounds to play an aids victim and activist in Dallas Buyers Club.

    Unless they know something I don’t know it isn’t possible for a man to have three children with a man.

      @george Adoption or a surrogate…. it is quite easy for 2 men to have children together. You must have missed a few high school classes.

    • Tawny Rogacki

      I do believe the children were from his husband’s previous relationship.

    Who cares. As for his being gay, nothing new there, nothing. What would be new, would be his being able to act, now that would be news.
