Matt Bomer, his partner Simon Hall & their son Kit support the Revlon Run-Walk

These are some new photos of Matt Bomer and his family at Saturday’s Revlon Run-Walk in LA. Bomer has been in a relationship with his partner, Simon Hall, for years and years – that‘s Simon in the navy windbreaker. Doesn’t Simon look a bit like Tim DeKay? I actually thought it was Tim DeKay for a moment. Anyway, Simon and Matt have three children together, and the little blonde boy is their son Kit. Before Bomer got White Collar, he was an openly gay actor, but for the first few years of White Collar, Bomer seemed to go into “the glass closet,” never speaking about his long-term partner (who is also his publicist) or their family. But! Back in February of this year, Bomer did make a public speech in which he spoke about his partner and their family, and after that, every media outlet was running “Matt Bomer comes out of the closet” stories.

Anyway, I just liked these photos. I like that Matt Bomer is participating in a celebrity run-walk for a women’s cancer research and awareness – he’s doing it for the sisters! And I like that Matt’s partner and son came out too, and that no one felt weird about being photographed. How cute is Kit, by the way? That boy is going to grow up to be a heartbreaker.

    Nice pictures, he looks like a loving parent!

    I could be wrong but I don’t think Matt did much before White Collar that warranted him doing a lot of interviews. Considering he had kids and a longterm relationship I doubt he was hiding his homosexually. Some people just don’t talk about their personal lives in interviews.

    • R says:

      Actually White Collar is his least rated show. Travel which he was the lead was pulling 8 mil for ABC. He was also part lead in Texas Chainsaw Massacre which did well over 50 million internationally.

      What you should mean is that he has now got a publicist which he never has had! WC is not the highest rated show on USA and yet I don’t see that much posted about other USA shows…so go figure?

      Anyway I am glad he finally realizes that you need a publicist to work with your agent to make sure you stay in the spotlight which in turns brings in the roles.

      I knew of Bomer from Texas Chainsaw and used to try and find out more about him but could not at all. I only know of WC because I found out about him again through some hot pictures. You see I don’t get USA channel, so White Collar is not not known amongst my friends nor amongst people who call themselves TV watchers.

      • Lan says:

        If Traveler had ratings like that, why was it cancelled?

        Still bitter about it tbh, though it did introduce me to Matt and Viola.

      • Bentany says:

        Although WC is not USAs highest rated show, it is USAs best show with the best cast. Matt is also USA networks biggest star now. No other USA actor is making films with top directors. WC was a mere launch pad for Matt as he is going to be huge long term.

    I love seeing doting dads. Very sweet!

  4. beyonce's bump says:

    I know he likes men and all but by Golly, I find him so irresistibly HOT and whenever I watch white collar he makes my lady bits feel something! He is definitely top five hottest Hollywood actors for me…he is so beautiful and the fact that he looks like a committed parent/ partner makes him even more beautiful. He’s partner is one lucky man!

  5. janie says:

    It kinda looks like Kit is crying. I don’t think he likes being photographed.

  6. Mia 4S says:

    I know this is the time to usually add a “so hot, I’d hit that” comment but I am not sure I could stay coherent long enough to hit that. I would probably just end up staring at him…mezmorized. My Disney prince!

    • Samigirl says:

      Disney Prince hits the nail on the head. My husband actually pointed it out…I was watching The Little Mermaid with my son, and Mr. Baker just bursts out, “You only like that dude bc he looks like Prince Eric!” and he totally does.

  7. R says:

    Sorry to be nit picky but it’s Simon Halls.

    Simon Halls isn’t Bomer’s publicist but the publicist of USA channel, so all the shows on USA and anything to do with USA channel.

    And Tim Dekay? Tim has more of a blue collar aw shucks look about him that is very wholesome and square. Halls looks like a cynical hard bodied Hollywood man. I don’t think goofy when I see Halls, I think power. He screams authority! Lolz.

    Oh and Halls said he was a single father in 2008 when Kit was 2, so by calculations I would think they’ve only been together for 4 years, not THAT long. Especially as all three kids are his from surrogacy.

    (all this can be found online on the W interview he did on surrogacy on single gay men)

    • slc says:

      thank goodness, someone else read that article too! i had no idea where it was from but, i kept on telling my friends, those are matty’s step kids (though you can totally see how much love he has for them and vice versa) i read it somewhere on the internet.

      i usually don’t lust for married celebs, least i try to show some restraint, but this man is perfect. he also seems like a real sweet and genuine person~ sir, do you have a straight single identical twin?

    • bluhare says:

      Do either of you know if MB has adopted the children?

      The picture of him helping him with something in is eye is meltworthy. Seriously meltworthy.

    • cc says:

      That makes sense. I was just thinking that Matt seems a little young to have been in a relationship for a while then adopted/had a surrogate and for the kid to be that old (Kit seems btwn 5 and 10 but closer to 10).

      He’s Megan Draper!

  8. Samigirl says:

    Oh my gosh, how in love is his little boy with his daddy? You can tell they love each other sooooo much! Makes me love MB even more. Now, White Collar needs to start back!

  9. Celine says:

    Matt sets the standard for hotness and class in show business. Now he will do the same for fatherhood!

  10. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    I think he’s overrated in the looks department. His eyes scare me. But I do love his show and I love love loved him on GLEE.

    I am still watching that episode when I need a good laugh.

  11. Darlene says:

    Oh, they are a sweet family!

  12. LucyOriginal says:

    Beautiful family and Matt Bomer is incredibly hot (with all the respect to his husband, of course)! Ditto to those of you who said he looks like a Disney Prince. So true!

  13. Eve says:

    I used to mistake Henry Cavill for him — Cavill looks like an overtanned-on-steroids version of Bomer.

    I think he should have been chosen to play Superman…but I guess studios will never take the risk and hire an openly gay man to play a superhero. Too bad, because I’d totally watch the movie if he was starring it.

    • loma says:

      He does look like Henry Cavill..

      You know what. They’re a normal loving family & both parents happen to be men. I look at these and think, so what? I’d still buy a ticket to see him in a movie, could care less if he’s playing gay or straight. If a straight actor can play a gay character why not the reverse? The openness and casualness in these photos make sexuality irrelevant. No big deal.. to me anyway.

      • Eve says:

        That’s what I was saying. I’d totally watch Superman if Bomer was the actor playing the main character. There’s more of a “Christopher Reeve vibe” to him than to Cavill. And he (Bomer) is a better actor.

        Also, there have been many gay men playing straight characters out there for as long as there is cinema itself. We just don’t know who they are (because they’ve been probably playing the straight character in real life as well).

        Some people’s homophobia really puzzles me sometimes: they have no idea that they’re watching a gay man convincingly playing a straight character (on screen), they watch him and love him for his acting. But the moment he comes out of the closet, suddenly he isn’t convincing anymore? That baffles me.

      • TQB says:

        Wow, i really never saw the Henry Cavill resemblance before, but you’re right.

        I disagree that Bomer is necessarily a better actor, but I do agree that while he looks like Cavill, Bomer has more of that All-American Prince look that Reeve had, which would make him a better Superman. I actually adore Henry Cavill but a) he was way cuter before he got all jacked up to be Supe and b) he’s English FFS, and he looks it.

        As for gay actors, I have zero problem with them playing leading roles as straight dudes. Let’s be honest here: I don’t have a shot with Matt Bomer, and it ain’t cause he’s gay!

      • Betina says:

        They have more in common since Henry is bisexual. Maybe one day they will date!

  14. loma says:

    Never understood the Matt Bomer thing, until now! Awwwww…. I kind of get the attraction to dads now. What makes him hot is seeing how his son is drawn to him. Also, Simon is good looking. I like this family

  15. Darcy P. says:

    Does anyone else not notice the stinky side-eye the women is throwing them in the 2nd pic from the bottom?

    • Samigirl says:

      I did! They are in LA…like she’s never seen a gay couple being loving toward each other?

    • polk8dot says:

      Oh, totally – that’s the first thing that jumped at me, LOL.
      She is none too pleased by something – since I do not know her, I don’t want to say it is because he is gay, but she definitely looks at in his direction as if she smelled something bad.
      Oh, well. Worth a laugh at least, ;)

    • Jordan says:

      I noticed but I don’t want to jump to conclusions that it is because he is gay. I know some people who hardly ever smile (it’s just the way they are) and it doesn’t matter that they are happy, they look like they have stink-face.

  16. Mirella says:


  17. Jordan says:

    Sweet! Matt Bomer is so hot. I wish there were some pics of his partner interacting w/ Kit just to get a sense of his personality. But they all look very happy together.

  18. Emily Jane says:

    Cute Kid, cute couple. Matt is still the most beautiful actor right now. He is doing very well in his career. His personal life should not matter.

  19. Katija says:

    I’m loving these comments, cause it’s proof that in this day and age, being openly gay won’t kill your career, or even ruin your heartthrob status. You gals rule. :-)

    • Eve says:

      I’d love that to be true, Katija. But I’m skeptical…I think girls here on Celebitchy are more open minded than many others posting elsewhere (I think we’re in the minority, I mean).

      For instance, there was a thread on IMDb a while ago where a girl (I assumed it was a girl) asked if a fictional character — that’s right: a fictional character (McMannus, played by Stephen Baldwin in the Usual Suspects) — “was gay with” another character (Fenster, played by Benicio Del Toro) in the movie because…she “liked the character very much and didn’t want him to be gay”. Sure, she got her ass owned by multiple posters there, but it reminded me that that dimwit was also a moviegoer and that there are other stupid people just like her.

      Let me see if I can find the thread (it could have been reported and deleted).

      EDIT: couldn’t find it, so I guess it has since been removed (wish I had “print screened” that shit).

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Please tell me you’re kidding, Eve. (BTW, thank you. I replied to your other post.)

        That’s so idiotic though, it’s probably true.

      • Eve says:

        I swear I’m not kidding. I tried to find the thread but it’s already gone (I guess somebody reported it and it was removed).

  20. Tiffany says:

    Such cuties!

  21. Renee says:

    cute family. Matt Bomer is definitely easy on the eyes.

  22. anti says:

    Hooray! Wishing them the best :)

  24. the original bellaluna says:

    Cute family and adorable son! So wonderful to see the nurturing, loving father to his son. :)

  25. ZenB!tch says:

    Cute family but I am not feeling the hot – maybe it’s because I grew up in a gay neighborhood but even not knowing he sets the gay-dar flying. Gay men or straight men who set off the gay-dar aren’t hot to me. They are pretty like a woman is pretty.

    I can see how much Matt loves these children, in each photo. What a beautiful family. Sending love…from our family to yours, Matt and Simon. “You’ve Got A Friend “
