Has being out changed anything? Is there any down side to having come out as an actor?

Umm…gosh, that’s such a hot-button question and it’s hard to ask. Because I think it’s so subjective. It is never lost on me how lucky I am to be born at the time I am, and to be an actor at the time I am. I think I’m incredibly blessed, and it’s given me incredible, beautiful opportunities that I may not have had otherwise. So that’s the lens that I choose to look at it from. I mean, is there a cost/risk benefit? Or, you know, just a cost? Sure. But I think you have to be willing to let your authenticity be more important than what it may cost you. And that’s a trade-off that I’m willing to make. - Matt Bomer [9:36]
