Here are some new photos of the always lovely Matt Bomer at last night’s LA premiere of In Time. He’s just so, so beautiful. I’m not attracted to him in a “He needs to see my vagina, STAT!” kind of way, but I do love looking at him. Previously, I had been a casual fan of White Collar, but I recently got the first two seasons on DVD, and now I’m a total fan-girl for him (and Tim DeKay). The Bomer has “it” – the indefinable, watchable quality that movie stars have. I just enjoy his face and his body so much. And the man can wear the hell out of a suit – go and look at what Justin Timberlake looked like at the premiere. The Bomer OWNED it.
To promote In Time, Matt has been giving some interviews, obviously. When he sat down to talk with MTV, he ended up discussing the Steven Soderbergh project, Magic Mike. That’s the film which is loosely based on Channing Tatum’s early years as a male stripper – Channing stars in the film as well, as does Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey. At first I was like, “A movie about male strippers based on Channing Tatum? Meh.” But the more I hear about it, the better it sounds. Of course, it also sounds like there’s going to be a lot of dancing and dongs, so… I’m already buying the DVD. The Bomer told MTV:
MTV News recently caught up with Matt Bomer at the press day for his upcoming film, “In Time,” and I couldn’t resist asking about the true magic of this film.
“It was criminal man, we had a blast. There’s a new band of brothers in town,” Matt said of bonding with his co-stars. “There something about having to throw a thong on in front of other people that just instantly forms an ensemble. We had a great time. I really think there hasn’t really been a movie like this before, and we did it all on a G-string budget,” he said with a smile. “I’m excited to see what people think.”
Speaking of those G-strings, I asked Matt if he or his co-stars picked up any new tricks or interesting facts with regard to the makeup and wardrobe required for strippers. He answered that question with the most entertaining story I’ve heard in a while.
“I think most importantly for me, it was figuring out how to put on a thong. The first time I tried, I had never worn a thong before, so the first time I tried it I put it on wrong and my junk didn’t fit in it,” he said with a laugh. “I had to call a wardrobe person in, ‘Something is wrong with my thong, you guys. I think we are gonna have to figure this out,’ and they’re like, ‘Yeah your legs are in the wrong holes.’ That was step one. No, there weren’t that many tricks going on, it was sort of a lot of tear-away clothes you know. There’s definitely a technique to make sure you get those off cleanly.”
The Bomer is a man of many talents (singing, stunt work, looking pretty, plus he’s a decent actor), so is it too much to hope that he’ll be wearing lots of tear-away pants and he’ll be doing a lot of hip thrusts? I’m already preparing to squeal. It’s going to be so awesome.
Oh, and Joe Manganiello recently discussed his role in the film too – he’s playing “Big Dick Richie”! When asked about full-frontal, he said: “You are going to see…I mean…. No, no full frontal! But his name is Big Dick Richie for a reason.” He also said that he and The Bomer are tight from back in the day: “I knew Matt Bomer because we went to drama school at Carnegie Mellon together. We were in all the same classes! There were only 21 of us. Matt came to my mom’s house for Thanksgiving one year. We were buds!”
