Their conversations are more about school dropoffs and their kids’ lunches.
With a husband who is one of Hollywood’s A-list publicists, you’d think Matt Bomer would receive free advice. Yet the actor – whose presence on a surprise Magic Mike XXL float with Channing Tatum drew cheers at L.A.’s June 14 Pride Parade – says Slate PR’s Simon Halls doesn’t get in his business.
“We’re pretty good about separating church and state,” says Bomer, who is repped by Viewpoint. “Like any partner in any relationship, I seek counsel, but I have my own publicist. We have three kids under age 10, so we don’t have time to talk about [work]. We’re more concerned with making sure lunches are made and everyone gets to school on time.” Bomer, however, could easily rep Halls, who works with Tom Ford and Frances McDormand: “I married up. He’s an intelligent and kind soul.”
Golden Globe winner Bomer is best known for his work on such projects as The Normal Heart, White Collar and American Horror Story. He has a pair of anticipated upcoming projects with the lead role in a Montgomery Clift biopic followed by the Magnificent Seven remake. THR caught up with Bomer at the 20th anniversary Taste for a Cure, benefiting UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center on May 1.
Meanwhile, Magic Mike XXL arrives in theaters on July 1. It’s the follow-up to the 2012 breakout pic and is directed by Gregory Jacobs. Tatum and Bomer star alongside Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash and Adam Rodriguez. [hollywoodreporter]

It is one of the most fascinating young actors in Hollywood . Talk with Matt Bomer, who is 37 years old and in Magic Mike XXL steals the screen to Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello, is always interesting.
The elegant Matt, who had conquered the audience in The Normal Heart and is preparing to bring to the screen the life of Montgomery Clift in a biopic already much discussed, is married to publicist Simon Halls. They have adopted and are growing “with maximum happiness and commitment” three beautiful children, six year twins and the eldest of eight.
In Hollywood puritanical and hypocritical politically correct, Matt did coming out with serene courage, years ago, without fear of losing roles as loving and manly characters.
“I have a beautiful family,” he says, "A work that I built with dedication and commitment, I believe in the integrity of my work and my private. We live years of apparent freedom and rights won, but I am the first to admit that it is not easy to convince many of a relationship defined “different”. Reject the lies, the compromises and limitations of the role. The talent, the passion for acting, adherence to roles have nothing to do with foolish and gossip are far away, or so it seems, the years when Rock Hudson had to hide his true identity. “
