Matt Bomer ‘optimistic’ about the future of openly gay actors in Hollywood

Matt Bomer has praised the acceptance of gay actors in Hollywood.

The openly-gay Magic Mike star recently shared his thoughts on the growing inclusion of openly gay actors in major mainstream movies. Bomer – who has seen his own star steadily rise since coming out in 2012 – said he is “amazed” at how open Hollywood is to out and proud actors and actresses.

“I think it’s great,” Bomer told Details Magazine. “It’s amazing what I’ve seen happen, especially in the past five years.”

He also praised the younger generation and their relationship with sexuality, who he says are much more open-minded and more concerned with a person’s skills than who they are sexually attracted to.

“There is a generation growing up now that blows my mind in terms of the equanimity that they bring to every conversation that I have with them and every situation that I’m in with them. There’s an entire generation of artists coming up who don’t really care what your personal life is. They want to know what you’re going to bring to the material. So, I’m very optimistic and hopeful when it comes to the future.”

Bomer previously said his character Donovan was “closely associated with Ms Gaga… and he has very interesting relationships with the lady folk in his life.”
