Matt Bomer is truly one of the nicest and most thoughtful people I’ve ever had the pleasure to interview, and at some point I might get over him not winning the Emmy just now. Maybe.
He said a lot of wise, self-aware things when we spoke, but it’s this quote (from outofficial) about what impact coming out might have on his career that I remember most:
“I’m so thankful to have been born in the times that we live in. I felt a responsibility to Simon and to our kids to be able to live with integrity and not have some strange split psychology of This is who my dad is at home, and this is who he is to the public. That trumped any type of professional repercussions that it could have had. And — not by my own volition or choice — I’ve been playing exclusively straight characters for the first 10 years of my career. Whatever happens from this point on says a lot more about the business and society than it does about me.”
