Matt Bomer Says He Lost Superman Movie Role Because of His Sexuality


Though Bomer wasn’t cast as the Man of Steel, he’s starred in several film and TV series, including Fellow TravelersMagic MikeWhite CollarIn Time and The Normal Heart—with him winning a Golden Globe and receiving an Emmy nomination for his work in the latter.

And in a 2020 interview, he spoke about what it was like for him to come out when he did.

“I came out at a time when it was very risky to do so—I had a studio film that was about to premiere, and a television series coming out,” Bomer—who shares three kids with husband Simon Halls—told Attitude. “But to me it was more important to be my most authentic self, both for my family, and for myself.”

He added, “I wasn’t trying to be a role model, nor am I now, but I thought if it could help just one person, then it would be worth it. But to say that didn’t cost me certain things in my career would be a lie. It did.”
