When you get to be a part of something like this, it’s so much bigger than who you are that you just try to put your ego behind you and serve the story — and Mark got that from day one. He was so collaborative and open. You know, when you’re working with a celebrity of that stature, the ball’s always in their court to extend the olive branch and make you feel comfortable and welcome in the world. And from day one, he really related to me. We just related to each other in character the whole time … I mean, we weren’t holding hands in between takes, but we would snuggle on the couch or hang out or tell stories.  — Matt Bomer [X]

Matt Bomer dedicates tonight to “the generation of artists, lovers and teachers we lost.”

I have to say [that], while I was kissing Matt, the one thing that went through my mind was, wow, it isn’t that different from kissing a girl, except for the whiskers. That was a little tough because the whiskers were chafing my skin. I finally realized why my wife likes to make out with me when I am clean-shaven.

“Having a life outside of the business that grounds you. For me, it’s my family. They always come first, and always will. But it doesn’t have to be exclusive to family. There are lots of things that keep the business in perspective. We’re very blessed to be able to tell stories. It’s an essential way for humankind to understand itself: who we are, where we come from, where we could be going, what we’re capable of. But at the end of the day, if you’re not living a life outside of the business, you’re going to run out of things to bring to the table.” - Matt Bomer ( Da Man Magazine Feb 2013)

“Larry is somebody we wish we had as our best friend growing up — as uncomfortable as he may have made us sometimes,” Bomer says. “Activism isn’t beautiful and easy, or a bunch of people getting together and picketing; it’s a lot more complicated and difficult than that. And true love — the most unconditional love — can be experienced by anyone, regardless of their sexuality.” [Out Magazine]

“It taught me how to access myself on a completely different level as an artist. And it blew my mind in terms of the level of unconditional love between Ned and Felix—my goodness, if these people could incorporate this into their lives, under their circumstances, why can’t I?” - Matt Bomer X
