Fellow gay actor Matt Bomer yesterday said he was ‘optimistic’ about the future of openly gay actors in Hollywood.
Bomer – who has seen his own star steadily rise since coming out in 2012 – said he is “amazed” at how open Hollywood is to out and proud actors and actresses.

“I think it’s great,” Bomer said.
“It’s amazing what I’ve seen happen, especially in the past five years,” he told Details Magazine.
He also praised the younger generation and their relationship with sexuality, who he says are much more open-minded – and more concerned with a person’s skills than who they are sexually attracted to.
Hollywood actor Matt Damon last week made controversial comments suggesting that gay actors do better if they hide their sexual orientation.
Damon made the comments about fellow actor Rupert Everett, suggesting he was less successful because he came out as gay.
