Gay star Matt Bomer among those honored in People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ issue
14 November 2012

His Magic Mike co-star Channing Tatum may be People magazine’s newly-crowned ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ but Matt Bomer fans are no doubt happy to see the popular actor also featured in the issue.

The magazine usually features several runners-up in no particular order and this year Bomer is the only openly gay actor in the bunch. He is featured along with past ‘Sexiest Men Alive’ winners Ben Affleck, Denzel Washington, Bradley Cooper and Richard Gere as well as Max Greenfield, Chris Hemsworth, Blake Shelton, Olympian Oscar Pistorius, Damian Lewis, and Paul Rudd.

Bomer, star of the television series White Collar, played a stripper alongside Tatum in the summer box office hit and there are Twitter and Facebook campaigns pushing for Bomer to be cast as the male lead in the film adaptation of the novel Fifty Shades of Grey.

The 35-year-old came out publicly earlier this year while accepting am award. He and partner Simon Halls, a powerful entertainment industry agent, are raising three children together.
