Not just this week....EVERY week
Whoever his boyfriend is, he's a lucky guy!
It's possible that jerich69 is a str8 fangirl. You never know.
He's too pretty. I prefer his Texas Chainsaw Massacre look. He looked really hot in that movie.
Apart from his guest appearance on Chuck i haven't really had an opportunity to see his stuff But while on Chuck, I had sensed a gay vibe coming from him and now I find out he is... my Gaydar apparently is good
^Yea I could tell he was gay right away too. I was surprised others needed all this evidence.
Personally, I never got a gay vibe from him and I still go back and fourth on whether or not he really is gay or if it is just wishful thinking. When I see the ring on his finger and look at the picture of his kids, I lately find myself seriously questioning if he actually is gay and partnered with Simon Halls and raising Simon's biological children with him. I mean don't you think the paparazzi could get at least one candid photo of Matt with Simon and the kids if it's really true? But so far all we've seen are the photos of Matt and children that appear to be HIS biological children, not Simon's. Remember, the gay rumor says the children are Simon's biological children via surrogate. Matt is said to be the non biological father. But those kids, especially that little blond one really has Matt's eyes and mouth. Even the cute little nose is like Matt's. Only the hair color is different. While a lot of Matt's answers about his sexuality have been cagey and evasive, very Ricky Martinesque, if you will, he did in at least one interview refer to what is being said about him online as "mythology" and said his "real life" could never compare to it. That sounds like a denial to me. If it's not, I don't know what is. But like I said, I go back and fourth on that. If he really is straight and has a wife and kids as a few reports have said, then why not just say so? Why not bring his WIFE to the Kennedy Center Honors instead of his mom? It would make more sense. I cannot imagine a married man saying to his wife, presumably the most important woman in his life "Honey you are staying home and missing out on this really big deal, but mom is coming with me instead." That I find REALLY hard to believe. And then there's the famous quote "I have a show and a network riding on my shoulders." He said that to explain why he didn't want to say anything about his sexuality. How would that be a problem for a straight actor? It wouldn't. He could feel free to say I'm a happily married straight as an arrow family man and it would not be a point of controversy for the show or the network. A gay leading man would most likely be pressured to stay silent about his sexual orientation. As I've said, I go back and fourth on this and don't really know what to think. At least one entertainment reporter speculated that Matt could be laying the groundwork now for coming out very subtly later. We shall see.
I wouldn't say "worked up". That's overstating things a bit. I just gave my take on it. That's all. My take has slowly evolved over time from being 100% convinced he was gay to maybe somewhere between 25 to 50% persuaded.
^I can't believe u still are unsure of his gayness. I wish I could find the interview but he when he was asked about what he would do for his lady for Valentine's day he got typically gay uncomfortable and kept saying "the person". He just gave textbook closeted gay answers. The interviewer didnt get all in his business and ask who he was dating they just asked him typical questions, that shouldnt have caused as much anxiety as they clearly did. And c'mon for a guy who is quickly becoming a sex symbol it is unreal that he is never asked about his love life. This dude is gay. Lucky for him he is involved with a PR whiz who has coached him on exactly how to conduct himself.
THIS should answer that question....
I can't believe people still question if he is gay or not.... At the very least he is bi....but I'm convinced he's gay.
I'll admit the pictures are quite persuasive, but you would think there would be more than just the two pics in ten years, don't you? The guy is INSANELY HOT!! If he is indeed gay, he probably buttfucked the entire gay population of California and New York! Did none of his boyfriends or tricks secretly videotape or photograph all the hot cocksucking action??!! really??!! Wouldn't there be more than just this Mike White dude coming forward? Are the no gay home movies of him at gay parties or get togethers that could find their way to the net? Just to play devil's advocate for a second, one could always argue that the famous kissing pics were just "a joke" or a "dare" and that at the critical moment someone snapped the picture and thought it would be fun to leak the pics to the internet where they would be taken out of context and taken way too seriously. Although, if that were the case you'd think that he would speak up and say so, instead of "no comment" and perhaps most tellingly "I've got a network and a show riding on my shoulders." Oh well. If he is gay, I doubt he'll confirm it until after he has faded from everyone's memory. That's usually how it goes. On another thread I posed the question "Of all the celebs who have come forward and CONFIRMED that they were gay, which ones surprised you?" Somebody replied that it was hard to think of any real surprises because by the time the celeb in question actually does come out, there has already been so much talk about them for so many years that it's hardly a shocker. Bomer will be a perfect example of that if he really is indeed gay and comes out later.
Lots of people in Hollywood keep secrets. There are many more powerful people in Hollywood who are gay or have had/do have sex with guys. Most people in Hollywood only care about money and not at all about gay activism and visibility.
The only thing I was getting at was that it just seems to me that there would be something more than the two pictures we have seen. Obviously this Mike White dude was not such a good guy. He is probably the one who leaked the photos and talked about their relationship to reporters. But it just seems like if Matt really was living fairly openly as a gay man, we would see more evidence of that than just those two pictures. I am well aware of the fact that not all exes would make and then leak a sex tape. But don't you think there would be paparazi pics of Matt and Simon and the kids just as there are pics of Matt damon and his wife and children? There must be some kind of corroborating evidence of this whole gay and partnered with Simon and raising kids story if there is anytruth to it. And there doesn't seem to be a lot.
People will take that picture however they want, but I do think it is pretty good evidence. Like I said, the guy he was kissing probably leaked it, and I assume he wouldn't have want it leaked. But whether it was a drunken dare, or a kiss because he is bi or gay, we will only know if/when he says he is or isn't gay.
Question...has he ever even said anything about the picture? I would imagine some reporter would mention it at some point...
I have withheld from this thread still stung by the remarks about it becoming
a Hayden and lefty thread.
I would like one question answered from Mr. Hayden before I invite him back
in to his profile of darkness and closet of security.
Mr. H. you indicated that you understood (commiserated?) that M.B. so had far
more to LOSE than you did with a public revealing of homosexuality.
My Question is don't you find it a bit queer that you can sympathise and yet still
try to OUT an alleged gay?
Do we consider that an act of multi-tasking...or the act of a hypocrite? I am
Just Asking, not trying to OUT anybody for anything.

I'm NOT trying to out him. And while I do sympathize with the predicament he is in, I also realize that if he or anyone else really wants to protect their privacy, they can make the very same choice I and many of us here have made: DON'T PURSUE A HIGH PROFILE CAREER!! Like it or not private citizens have the luxury of privacy. Movie stars, politicians, rock stars, professional athletes DO NOT. The biggest drawback to being famous is that privacy goes right out the window. And before you lecture me on how things should be, let me say that I would agree with you that in an ideal perfect world the media would leave public figures alone. BUT WE DON'T LIVE IN AN IDEAL, PERFECT WORLD!! There is a big difference between how things SHOULD be and how they ARE. Why can't you get that?? Jesus! I'm sure that Tiger Woods would have preferred it that we didn't know about his bevy of bimbos and that he could have a nice quiet divorce. Well guess what? He CAN'T! He's fucking Tiger Woods, NOT Joe Smith. No one put a gun to his head and FORCED him or any other public figure to pursue such a high profile career. They chose that. I have always said that public figures should come out willingly. I never said they should be forced out. But it is completely unrealistic for anyone who is gay to think they can reach the heights of stardom or even moderate fame and their sexuality will be kept secret over the course of an entire lifetime. I opted for life as a private citizen, not a movie star. Movie stars and the like get to have 20 million dollar paychecks and those of us who are not celebs get to have our privacy. MB and others could have chosen to pursue something that was not in the spotlight, but he didn't. Public figures are in more of a position to reach more people and make more of a difference, than some ordinary schlub and you damn well know it! I already said my piece about that and I'm not going to rehash it again. You once acknowledged that we obviously have a different way of looking at things and should just agree to disagree. Fair enough. Then so be it. The problem is you clearly don't get where I'm coming from at all as you have repeatedly misstated my opinions. I don't have the power to "out" a celebrity. I am NOT the one who leaked the kissing pics. I just gave my two cents on them. I never said Matt Bomer should be FORCED out and you fucking know it! I have always believed that public figures should be out voluntarily. They are in far more of a position to reach the broadest number of people than ordinary private citizens are. They can make more of a difference. Why do think the "It Gets Better" campaign uses celebrities instead of janitors? And if you don't want this to turn into the Hayden/Lefty show then stop bickering with me and misstating my views after I have repeatedly explained them! Do what you said you would do! Agree to FUCKING disagree!!
"My Question is don't you find it a bit queer that you can sympathise and yet still
try to OUT an alleged gay?"
And what's with the homophobic slurs? I can get that bullshit from Bill O'reilly or any other right wing bigot on fox news. I don't need it from you, nor do I have the power or ability to "out" anyone. I can only give my take on what has already been made public which is all I have done. What's more it is possible to want to see change happen, while still comprehending just how difficult that is. There is nothing "queer" about that you homophobe.

Sorry, but I think some folks here are out of line. No need for slurs.
Hayden is simply commenting on things that are already publicly known. If photos, video, info from friends/co-workers/etc. is put out there, that's not your (the fan/person who stumbles upon it/he who wonders) fault. Once it is out there, people are going to talk. Celebs, and people in the closet, don't necessarily get to control what others think or even say about them if such info is out there and gives others reason to. That's part of the sacrifice of being a public figure...and that's part of the struggle with being in the closet. In the case of celebs and public figures, who have substantial rumors/photos/video/etc. that basically already out them, with that info out in a public domain like the internet...seems to me they've already been outed. If Hayden knew Matt personally, that would be a completely different story. He is simply a fan that is analyzing info that has already been made public.
Well said Quasar and paintact.
I have no idea. but he is an attractive man. had dreams of him last night. not naughty. just dreams.

Matt brought Simon Hall with him to the SAGS!!! 0.0!!
This is not an exit
He kind of looks like Tim Dekay in that picture. Hopefully, we'll see more of them out together. If he is actually taking Simon Halls with him to awards shows, then maybe that closet door is starting to creek open a bit. Perhaps, if this really is what it looks like and that is indeed Simon Halls then Matt will come out Jodi Foster style. You know thank or acknowledge his partner in a speech or make a passing reference to him in some interview. I don't expect to see him on the cover of The Advocate with a headline that reads "Yep. I'm gay." Maybe a more casual approach will be his style.
"Perhaps, if this really is what it looks like and that is indeed Simon Halls..."
That's just it. IF is the operative word. Because there are so few pictures of Simon Halls, there are a lot of men who have been erroneously identified as Simon Halls. Everyone from Brad Goreski to Stephen Huvane. Afterelton had the picture of Matt sitting next to Brad Goreski at a fashion show and originally thought it was Matt and Simon out on a date. It wasn't. Whether or not that really is Simon Halls seated next to Matt is kind of sketchy. It's also not clear that the two of them are together. He could have been seated at a large table with many people at it and that was just some random guy who happened to be next to him. It does seem kind of odd that after all this time of saying "no comment" about his sexuality, he would suddenly show up in public with Simon. I remember at the SAG awards Matt was on the red carpet solo. Well, maybe he plans on slowly revealing the truth about himself. That way nothing will seem like a big shock later. As some reporter once noted, he might be just laying the groundwork now for very subtly coming out later. Could be. We shall see.
Matt Bomer.... Matt Bomer... Matt Bomer.... Mmm...... one word.
don't know if this has ever been posted in this thread...and I don't feel like looking through all of the pages...lol
Aw man...I hate that it's ending tonight. Now we'll to wait until the end of summer before it comes back, sigh.
I nearly forgot this was Season 2 still...they through me off track after that long ass hiatus they took.
wow, i did't know he was gay until now xD
Oh how I would love to have this man anytime of day or night.

[QUOTE=hayden777;6962721]Officially, the jury is still out on that. It's sort of questionable. He never confirmed it and he has referred to what has been said about him online as "mythology"./QUOTE]
I have no idea how him posing in a picture where he's open-mouth kissing his ex-boyfriend can possibly be "mythology"; it's quite obviously a real picture.
Front view, so you can see it's him
STRAIGHT MEN DON'T DO THIS
While I'm inclined to agree with you on that, it's just possible that some ten years ago or so he kissed some dude in jest. Someone snapped a pic at the crucial moment and it got taken way too seriously. Just to play devil's advocate, I'm only saying that it's possible. Pictures can sometimes be misleading. There are also pictures, old ones, where he appears to be quite cozy with Kristen Bell. But, they aren't kissing or doing anything of a sexual nature in the pics. They're just posing at a public function of some sort. Although I believe she was with movie producer Kevin Mann at the time the photos were taken. (2002-2007) Like I said, officially the jury is still out (if you'll excuse the expression) BTW, has anyone seen the newest pictures of Matt with I believe his oldest kid. It is just him and his oldest son. No Simon. No possible wife either. They were at some amusement park.
Why argue this? So what if he's gay? That's a problem now?
No one said it's a problem. And no one said definitively that he's straight or gay, only that, officially, it has never been confirmed or denied one way or the other. The response from his publicist is still "We don't comment on any of our clients private lives." and "He is happy and fulfilled in his home and family life." That could mean anything.
He's as gay as a circus.
Get over it.
Things that point to him being gay:
- Photographs from his past where he's passionately kissing a man.
- No refusal from his reps.
- Very vague answers about his personal life in interviews, including saying he's got a show/network riding on his shoulders (Neil Patrick Harris has said that when he came out, the network was probably the most worried, because they didn't know how the public would react – and he's not even a leading man).
- Showing up to the Kennedy Center Honors with his mom, not his partner (man or woman).
- The man he is rumored to be married to sitting next to him at the Golden Globes.
- The same man sitting/standing next to him in grainy photographs from a White Collar viewing party.
- There seems to be a gentleman's agreement not to ask him questions of a particularly personal nature in television appearances (and the man he is rumored to be married to is a PR guy…)
- He was seen with three kids who are around the same age as Simon Halls' kids would be.
…and I'm sure there are more.
Things that point to him not being gay:
- Some people think he isn't.
So, officially, no, he isn't out to the general viewing public. But it definitely seems to be one of those open secrets, and worrying or obsessing over it just seems weird.
The White Collar fandom I've encountered seem pretty lax about the whole thing, and most people know that he's gay and find it to be no big deal, and lust after him just the same (they're mostly women – but I know straight men who appreciates his hotness as well (and no, they're not closet cases)). It's not like most actors are any more or less attainable to regular fans whether they're gay or straight, so I don't see why the network should be worried. But I guess there is a lot of the US we're not seeing in communities like that online.
I personally think he is gay but there is no use in arguing about it when nobody except him knows for sure (if he even knows).
I don't really disagree with any of that. My point is that none of us is ever really going to know for sure until he officially comes out and says it himself. And I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that to happen any time in the near future. If history has shown us anything, it's that those actors in Hollywood who really are gay, especially if they are of the sex symbol, hearthrob, hunk variety, don't come out of the closet until their leading man days are over. Some examples of this are: Richard Chamberlain, Tab Hunter, and the lesser known Steve Antin( who just directed Cher in Burlesque). Although Antin's acting career never really took off anyway. He was best known as one of Jodi Foster's rapists in "The Accused" So maybe in another twenty years or whenever he's ancient history and all but forgotten, then he'll be on the cover of The Advocate with the big headline "Yep. I'm Gay." We've seen that scenario countless times before. It wouldn't be the first time. But once again all of that is IF he really is indeed gay.
