Matt gave an interview to Details magazine, published this Monday (6), to promote American Horror Story. He talks about Stefani (Lady Gaga, for us!), fatherhood, the gay scene in Hollywood and more. Check some excerpts:
DETAILS: Your haircut in the show is pretty spiffy. What made you go with that?
It was very important for the character to have a haircut that was of the time. The Countess gets bored very easily so you always have to keep her satisfied and engaged, and you have to be up to speed with the latest trends. It’s not quite a mullet, it’s more of a variation of that Prohibition Era, ’30’s styled hair.
DETAILS: How is fatherhood? You’ve got three sons, right?
Yup, it’s great. It’s the greatest gift I’ve ever been given. It’s the most challenging thing I’ve ever been thrown. It’s something that keeps both of us [he and his husband Simon Halls] on our toes every day, especially with three boys, but it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
DETAILS: Are you going to have some more kids? Maybe a little girl?
Honestly, given my work schedule and having three boys and all that entails in terms of getting them to school and practices and playdates on time, I think it would be highly, highly ambitious of me and maybe not entirely level headed to take on another child at this particular time.
DETAILS: Lastly, what do you think of the status of openly gay actors in Hollywood today?
I think it’s great. It’s amazing what I’ve seen happen, especially in the past five years. There is a generation growing up now that blows my mind in terms of the equanimity that they bring to every conversation that I have with them and every situation that I’m in with them. There’s an entire generation of artists coming up who don’t really care what your personal life is. They want to know what you’re going to bring to the material. So, I’m very optimistic and hopeful when it comes to the future.
