He's out and proud, but it wasn't always this easy for the actor.
It's hard to believe that there are still many actors out there who are still in the closet out of fear of how their sexuality could affect their career - indeed, Matt Bomer confessed that his first experience of acting was pretending to be a straight man.

Many Hollywood stars have struggled to be open about their sexuality in their careers from Ellen DeGeneres to Wentworth Miller, and 'American Horror Story' star Matt Bomer reveals that even in this day and age he still has friends that aren't yet ready to come out as gay.

They're all openly gay, but you might not know it with some of them.
Ian McKellen has offered his own opinion about diversity in Hollywood following the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. He believes that it's not only black people who are being overlooked in the film industry, but gay actors too; especially since straight stars have indeed won Oscars for playing gay men (Tom Hanks, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Sean Penn) but never the other way round.
It is more frequent than one first might believe that gay people in the acting world are often playing straight roles - sometimes exclusively - and there are very few who have found themselves playing only gay characters. Here are just a few gay stars who've played gay roles in their careers:
Anyone else get nightmares after Episode 3 of Hotel?
'American Horror Story' has returned with yet more blood and supernatural horrors than ever before with 'Season 5: Hotel'. If you thought 'Freak Show' was as bizarre as it could go, you'd be wrong. And episode three 'Mommy' takes it up yet another spine-chilling notch.
Chloe Sevigny has the creepiest greeting so far in 'American Horror Story: Hotel'
So what's happened so far? Well episode one 'Checking In' saw Hotel Cortez play host to some particularly creepy, bloodthirsty forces, with the wretched, ill-fated guests being killed by flesh-eating ghost kids, raped to death by the Addiction Demon and slashed to ribbons by vampires during an orgy. Plus, Hypodermic Sally (Sarah Paulson) has fallen to her death at the hands of Donovan's (Matt Bomer) protective mother, hotel manager Iris (Kathy Bates). Naturally, events have caught the attention of Detective John Lowe (Wes Bentley).

Lady Gaga’s character on ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ has been revealed!
We still have another three months to wait until the next season of American Horror Story: Hotel airs on FX but the hype is already building as new details come to light. On Friday (8th August), the cast of American Horror Story: Hotel assembled in Los Angeles at the Television Critics Association and they revealed who they would be playing in the upcoming series. Lady GaGa was not at the event but details about her character were revealed by the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy.

Resisting the temptation to capitalise on the camp value of these characters, Channing Tatum and his producing-writing partner Reid Carolin create a startlingly loose and thoughtful follow-up to their 2012 hit. Yes, it's still the story of a group of ridiculously muscled men who take their clothes off for a living and enjoy a laugh. And even without much of a plot it's a remarkably astute exploration of masculinity and gender politics. In the last three years, Mike (Tatum) has made a decent go of his furniture-making business, but his life feels stuck in a rut.
Then his old pals ask him to go on the road for one last hurrah to a stripper convention. So he heads off with new-age healer Ken (Matt Bomer), lovelorn beefcake Richie (Joe Manganiello), artful biker Tarzan (Kevin Nash), macrobiotic smoothie expert Tito (Adam Rodriguez) and food-truck driving deejay Tobias (Gabriel Iglesias). Along the way, they meet up with Mike's old mentor Rome (Jada Pinkett Smith), who provides two new guys for the team (Donald Glover and Stephen 'tWitch' Boss). And they get some favours from a newly single Southern belle (Andie MacDowell) and another old friend (Elizabeth Banks).
There's very little to the story, but the film's improvisational style allows all of the characters to deepen in quiet but significant ways. So the journey these people take is even more internal than the highways they traverse from Tampa, Florida, to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The main point is that these men need to figure out who they are if they have any hope of finding happiness, and each one takes his own subtle voyage of discovery. The actors dive into this approach, which requires unusually subtle performances that combine sexy physicality with earthy, boisterous humour. What the film never does is fall back on the usual cliches about machismo or sexuality.

Watch Channing Tatum do seven classic dance moves in 30 seconds.
For those of us who have seen Step Up, Magic Mike or its recently released sequel, we’re all well aware Channing Tatum can dance. However, it comes as something of a surprise though to see him drop his grinding stripper moves for something a little tamer – voguing, the funky chicken and the pony.
Tatum did seven well-known dance moves in 30 seconds in a video for Vanity Fair. The video was part of his interview for his August cover of the magazine. Tatum, knowing some of the moves are somewhat ridiculous, took the bizarre activity in good part and even seemed to be enjoying himself. He was especially good at voguing!
The male stripper sequel hit US theatres today (July 1st) and stars Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, and Joe Manganiello.
Channing Tatum and his troupe of oiled up, dancing beefcakes have hit the road this summer for Magic Mike XXL, the sequel to the highly successful 2012 film which followed a group of male strippers in Florida. But while the first film showed a surprising amount of heart, the XXL version seems to be more intent on just showing skin, leaving some reviewers feeling more than a little cheated.
The boys of Magic Mike XXL
Star Channing Tatum, who based the original film on his own experiences as an 18 year old stripper in Florida, has come along way in the short period of time since Magic Mike. Last year he impressed critics in Oscar nominated drama Foxcatcher, so it’s no surprise that some were expecting a lot from Tatum in his second Magic Mike outing.
Magic Mike might be keeping his clothes on these days in favour of beginning a business in custom furniture, and after a rather bitter and scandalous departure from the Xquisite nightclub, but three years on and he's still got the moves. And the body. These days, his stripper friends have decided to give up their dancing careers in Tampa, Florida too, but these aren't the kind of guys who are going to disappear quietly. They thus decide to get together one last time for a spectacular performance at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina where a major stripping convention is due to take place. Mike agrees to join them as their headliner, re-living his glory days as the ultimate chiselled fantasy. Along the way he meets some old friends and welcomes new faces in such cities as Jacksonville and Savannah, and they dance away their previous lives in style.
