Victor Garber Gay? Argo Actor Comes Out, Or Rather, Does 'A Jodie Foster'
Jodie Foster isn’t the only Hollywood star whose privacy regarding their sexuality has been stripped back a little, recently. Though Jodie Foster chose to speak publicly about being gay, at the Golden Globes awards, Victor Garber’s ‘coming-out’ was sprung on him, somewhat, at the TCA winter press tour, when blogger Greg Hernandez asked about a Wikipedia entry, which mentions his partner Rainer Andreesen.
Much like Jodie Foster, Garber has never kept his sexuality under wraps, as such, but has not made any grand public declaration about being gay. He did confirm, however, that he intended to attend the Screen Actors Guild Awards later this month, with his partner Rainer. “He’s going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards,” said Victor, before adding “My companion Rainer Andreesen and I have been together almost 13 years in Greenwich Village. We both love New York.” Steering away from the subject.
Back on the subject of acting, Garber revealed that his forthcoming TV series Deception (on NBC) was the first in a while that has excited him enough to get involved. “I'm a lucky actor,” he said. “I work. But this is the first series that's come along since Eli Stone, three years ago, that I really wanted to do... For an actor, it's like getting a dessert - like getting what you hope for and rarely get.”
