Matt Bomer Talks 'Normal Heart' with Ellen, Gets Some 'Magic Mike' Stripper Duds: VIDEO


Matt Bomer joined Ellen for the season finale of her daytime show and of course talked about his transformative role in the HBO adaptation of The Normal Heart. Bomer talks about how much weight he lost for the film, and what it was like on the set the day that DOMA was struck down, along with other behind-the-scenes details.

He also talks about Magic Mike 2, which is a road trip film in which the men are heading to a stripper convention. Ellen, of course, has some stripper outfit options for Bomer to try out.


 He also announces that he's now on Twitter.

  2. Does Matthew Bomer have an equally stunning single and available gay twin brother I don't know about? ;o)

    Seriously though, he did excellent work on The Normal Heart. I've only seen him in a handful of other roles so I hope this furthers his career nicely. Really, with how gorgeous he is and his charisma and ability to act, he should be getting leading roles in Hollywood left and right. I'd like to see him as the first openly gay actor playing a superhero!

  3. Two successful openly gay stars on the same show. For a 59 year old who grew up hiding and afraid, that's cool.

  4. Did you notice that when Matt was talking about The Normal Heart, a serious, credible movie, there was almost no audience reaction.
    Then when he and Ellen start talking about Magic Mike, a movie about strippers, the audience went crazy. Sometimes human nature is pretty sad.

  5. I had the same feeling DAVID FROM CANADA. Think Ellen did as well just from the way that she reacted and then emphasized The Normal Heart again to the audience at the end.

  6. @ David from Canada: I would say audience was silent because a movie about AIDS is a tad more serious than a film about male strippers.

  7. Yes. You expect the audience to cheer when he talked about people dying of AIDS?

  8. You are seriously surprised that an audience full of mostly married women/mothers (probably mostly from middle America) would have a bigger reaction to a movie showing good looking guys stripping gets more reaction than a show about the early days of the AIDS crisis?

  9. I mean, I'm ugly as sin and my family hates not just how ugly I am, but what a pathetic little coward I am, too.

  10. I mean I am pathetically desperate for attention so I created a blog because I think people actually want to follow my anorexic and dirty looking self.

  13. Ellen has a twisted concept of gay male erotica.
