Matt covers ‘OUT – The Pride Issue’

Matt Bomer is gracing the cover of OUT – The Pride Issue, out this May 1st. On this interview, he talks to Girls’ Andrew Rannells about his days as a soap opera hustler, growing up in the Bible Belt and life before (and after) coming out.

Scans will be uploaded asap. Check below the interview.

There’s a nice symmetry in casting a gay actor from Texas to play a different kind of Hollywood outsider, as the producers of Amazon’s The Last Tycoon have done with Matt Bomer, the former White Collar star who also won a Golden Globe in 2015 for his performance as Felix Turner in Ryan Murphy’s HBO adaptation of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart.

This time Bomer plays Monroe Stahr, a self-invented Jewish director in the mold of Irving Thalberg, one of early Tinseltown’s great producers. Loosely based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished novel of the same name, The Last Tycoon is written and directed by Billy Ray, best known for his work as a screenwriter for crowd-pleasers such as The Hunger Games, though he also directed the critically acclaimed 2003 movie Shattered Glass, about the fraudulent and discredited journalist Stephen Glass. For his first long-form drama series, Ray has not skimped on period detail, and the production is achingly stylish and sumptuously lit. But it also promises to evolve over the course of its nine-episode season into a compelling creation myth of modern-day Hollywood.

Bomer, who started his career in theater, recently sat down with his old friend Andrew Rannells (Girls) to open up about Tycoon, the coming-out process, and his crazy stint as a soap star.
