Matt Bomer Is “Really Proud” Of Wentworth Miller, Thinks He’s “Classy”

matt-bomerWhite Collar hunk Matt Bomer welcomed Wentworth Miller into the openly gay actors club this week, telling E! News that he’s “really proud” of the Prison Break star for opening up and making a bold statement with his announcement.

Earlier this week, Miller came out as gay in a letter to the St. Petersburg International Film Festival. He declined an invitation to attend the event, saying he could not “in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.”

“Wow, I think its really bold and incredibly classy how he came out and did it,” Bomer told E! at a U.S. Open kickoff party this week in New York. “I am really proud of him. Its very reflective of his amazing character.”

Miller joins a number of celebrities in voicing opposition to Russia’s recent “gay propaganda” laws, and joins Andy Cohen as the second notable celeb to decline traveling to Russia in light of the new legislation.

      @Katbox: “so old”? what the hell kind of comment is that? what does it matter that he’s 5 years older than Bomer? It makes what difference exactly? Is he somehow of less worth because of his age?

      @Katbox: 41 is “so old”?? Then what would YOU call 50, ancient? This man does something that is brave & risky, who knows what his acting career will be in gay, yet homophobic Hollywood, And you had you had to make that comment about his age. Which I feel is still young.

      @MikeE: You know that certain members of the gay community are ageist. What does it matter exactly? Most of the truly ageist ones also worship at the store of Abercrombie and Fitch, starve themselves so they will always stay thin, have no brains and have no prospects. I really do not care what the clerk at A&F, Hot Topic or Spencer’s Gifts thinks about me. I take pride in knowing that their dead end job will eventually dump them for someone newer and they to will become old and “irrelevant” while I date a hot older lawyer that brought in $300,000 last year.

      @tdx3fan: I don’t like the “so old” types either, but the whole “my boyfriend makes more money than you” thing is just as superficial.

      @tdx3fan: Ha, I love how your discussion criticizing people who hate old people is supplemented by a list of the types of people you hate (i.e. the guy that sold you your shirt that your sugar daddy paid for). And then concluding with a proclamation that you’re a gold-digging whore. So you’ll date an old lawyer but I’m guessing you wouldn’t date an old janitor. So basically, you’re generally an ageist but can be bought off.

      Of course I say this as a 28 year old lawyer who is dating an older man that earns less than me, so perhaps I’m just biased.

      @Katbox: How can we expect the heterosexual community from not hating us if we hate ourselves?
