Numbered titles help people understand the series of threads that came before.

This really should have been the Matt / Simon Thread Number 7.

and R6 Matt always had his very own thread. At some point last year someone decided to make it a Matt and Simon thread.

This is technically way beyond Thread No 7.

Matt posted an IG story of him in Monofuku. Simon was quoted in the Hollywood Reporter a few days ago as saying this was his go-to spot whenever he's in Toronto.

He was in an insta story saying to a fan that yes, he'd see Stefani/Lady Gaga tomorrow.

Matt is nice guy but too boring to be a movie star which he never will be.

by Anonymousreply 1509/08/2018

He is a movie star R15. He's done better than nearly every other working openly gay actor in showbiz.

If you mean an A-List movie star? I'm not sure that concept exists anymore as it did in the past.

It's also why you have stars like Reese Witherspoon, Henry Cavill and Nicole Kidman doing TV and streaming shows again. Take away Chris Evans' Marvel films and he doesn't even have much going on. That same thing applies to all of them from Marvel, really. Halle, Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks and others don't really bring in the bucks anymore or try to.

I also found it amusing in the R13 interview that they left out the fact that his weatherman character is gay and that is what starts the whole film rolling.

[quote]Does Viper Club premiere this evening also?

It seems like the Viper Club's press screening is on Monday R14 and the public screenings start the day after. Must be less pressure since the film already has a distributer. The film comes out on October 26 on Youtube Red.

R3, he's also only in one scene of the film, "Jonathan" he did years ago according to a review of the film. CMU people were involved so he lent his name to it.

by Anonymousreply 1609/08/2018

R16 I wouldn't go as far to call him a "movie star". He's a successful TV ( and now theatre) actor and has done very well for an openly gay actor in Hollywood but he hasn't been in a studio movie since 2016.

by Anonymousreply 1709/08/2018

Duckling is working actor, and at 40 very likely has little expectation of starring regularly in features.

Magic Mike is it for him.

by Anonymousreply 1809/08/2018

This is a rabbit hole I don't think we need to go down R17.

Delineating what qualifies a person as a movie star can be a very complex question. Even defining what a movie star is, is not clear cut

He's not A-List. He may never be. He's been in more movies than the thousands of hopefuls out there and he has carried a couple of them even if they weren't super successful.

If you've been in a successful movie or two then you're a movie star no matter when it happened. However, no one stays that way.

You're applying the same logic up there with your comment saying that he's a "successful tv (and now theatre) actor."

He's only been the lead ONE tv show that was successful, "White Collar" and was only in ONE successful play which he wasn't the lead in and didn't carry on his own.

by Anonymousreply 1909/08/2018

Duckling will best be remberedas a pretty face and big butt among an ensemble. Barring any sort of drastic reinvention which is certainly possible if unlikely.

by Anonymousreply 2009/08/2018

Well I wouldn't qualify him as a movie star, more so a TV star. He's done well for himself in his career but being out probably cost him overall. But its a decent career anyway-its could have been worse.

by Anonymousreply 3909/09/2018

Not a lot of fan pics of Matt from yesterday. Saw a few people on Twitter say that there wasn't much opportunity to meet him there. I suppose because it wasn't a bigger premiere it was more just like a run of the mill small festival screening. Could be the same way for London too.

by Anonymousreply 4009/09/2018

The guy at R23 was right. It's weird a couple of Bomer fans took issue with him saying, "unexpectedly." Matt doesn't normally get to play these kinds of roles. Hopefully, until the right project comes along, he'll keep doing smaller ones where they let him do things that Ryan Murphy and others won't so he can finally showcase his talent. He won't get paid as much but it's nice to see occasionally.

If he wants to be seen as more than a pretty face then he should act in roles where the expectation isn't that.

R27, that's what R16 said.

R31, Duckling troll making up shit again.

R39, There are Matt fans that haven't met Matt after this past summer? LOL

R30, I didn't want to say it but he really does look his age at TIFF.

I think it's because he's still dieting to have abs and should probably put on a bit more weight. He's still handsome but as you age you have to choose. There's a difference between last year when he was taking time off and now. His face is more angular now.

by Anonymousreply 4109/09/2018

R40 I've attended London Festival before and it's a bit more low key comparing to TIFF but after Q&A people are hushed out to prepare the cinema for the next screening, however a lot of filmakers and actors stay around and it's possible to meet theem around festival premises (obviously it doesn't apply to really big stars). On this occasion the movie will be the last one screened in that cinema so maybe they'll stay a bit longer there.

by Anonymousreply 4209/09/2018

R42 his diehard European fanbase seem to be all going to that London festival so you'd hope for their sanity they get a better chance of meeting him than those who were at TIFF.

by Anonymousreply 4809/09/2018

R48 usually the first showing of the film has a Q+A with directors/actors at festivals. Depends on circumstances really but I'd assume it would be the first time it screens.

by Anonymousreply 4909/09/2018

R48 it is never officially mentioned - last 3 years almost all movies I saw (each year 5-10) were followed by Q&A, especially if they were premiering in Europe. If the director & the main star are travelling for the first screening then for sure the screening will be followed by a Q&A. Last year they lasted around 30-40 minutes (Luca Guadagnino's and the guy who directed 120 bpm were particularly good). Depending on the availability the director or actors might come to more than one screening - this happened with Moonlight (whole cast + director) and CMBYN (Luca + his partner who is editor of all his movies). Anyway see you there and if you have a chance ho and see some other movies as well, the selection is usually very good.

He said he was going to see her the day before to a fan who asked if he would see Lady Gaga. I assume they met up at some point when she arrived in town privately. It's funny that Matt's fans are the only ones that seem to recognize his husband.

There's also no reason to assume Simon would go home a day early when Matt has one more film showing since he has been around the entire time but hiding while working himself. I bet Simon is the one taking the instagram photos and videos he posts.

Matt posted the trailer for Vulture Club. It looks like a great movie.

Once again he gets to do stuff that he doesn't normally do by working with different people than he usually does that actually let him. Hopefully he'll continue the trend.

Unfortunately a lot of people were very angry at Susan, and continue to be angry at Susan, for her politics over the past few years. At least the movie will def be released.

Ever since he turned 40/or towards the end of 2017, he's appeared to have been a lot more relaxed and more himself. Think he gives less of a shit now than before. Although, even looking at old bloopers from White Collar he's always been kinda goofy/joker, he probably is just more confident in being himself during interviews/appearances.

Did coming out hurt his career? Would he be a bigger star if he hadn't? What does Matt say about it?

by Anonymousreply 9309/11/2018

Just click the FF button on the troll that keeps talking to itself. It doesn't like that Matt is getting praise so it is going off.

I'd say, one of the only reasons he "appeared" to let his guard down and stopped being so made up is because the public saw him almost every day for months. There wasn't a team styling him. He wore his own clothes, put on light makeup when he was out and traveled around like a normal person most days. He appeared to be more loose and open but really he was just any person doing a "9-5" job.

I also think it's like R91 said, he gives less of a shit. He seems very relaxed in R86's interview. However, he also made it clear last year he was going to give less of a shit about role choices and I think that's trickled back to making him more relaxed. He's a gay man, playing a gay person, in a movie marketed to gay people and straight people with a gay director who wants him to act - not run around naked in a blood orgy with Gaga. He's also getting praise for it.

[quote]“I will say that in the past couple of months I’ve really realized that it’s OK to not say yes to everything,” he continues. “It’s OK to take your time as an artist and pull in the purse strings and wait for something that really hits you with a thump in the heart. I spent a lot of time after that trying to do favors to friends and trying to do what I thought I should or what people told me I should. I think the artist’s path, especially in this day and age, it’s so easy to stray from your intuition.” He laughs again. “So hopefully now I’ll have the luxury of doing that. Then again, you may see me on Law & Order: SVU next year, I don’t know.”

It seems like he kept his word with Papi Chulo which features primarily himself in a role that isn't trying to be a huge blockbuster. We get to see new sides of him.

True, it was totally clear he didn't care for The Last Tycoon after the initial promotion and once his character died on AHS: Hotel he stopped tweeting about it LOL

by Anonymousreply 12009/11/2018

R120, Right. Honorary Chairs don't have to show up at events. However, it's a gray area.

So it sounds like if he wasn't working he would have been there last year. He had a legitimate excuse.

If he missed it this year and didn't have something else scheduled that he was obligated to do that would be two years in a row which isn't good. Donors do expect to see their chairs.

He doesn't even have to go to the AIDS Walk if he doesn't have time or want to. He's just an honorary chair.

The only stuff he has to do is stuff he's contractually obligated to do which is usually film promotion and actually being on set and acting. Everything else is always his prerogative.

From The Hollywood Reporter review:

But it’s the synergistic performances of Matt Bomer, playing raw and broken, and Alejandro Patino, conveying decency and nonjudgmental compassion behind his deadpan raised eyebrows, that makes the movie click.

The strongest selling point will be Bomer’s heart-on-his-sleeve characterization as a genuinely sweet guy dealt a cruel blow by life, playing down his good looks with a nervous clumsiness that often veers amusingly close to slapstick. Whether that’s enough to get theatrical mileage is a big maybe, but there will definitely be an appreciative audience for this warm-hearted tale of emotional healing through an unlikely friendship.

Susan made some boneheaded comments again on politics and people on Twitter are including Matt in their attacks because he worked with her, sat next to her and "smiled" while she made them.

Debra Messing is also fighting with Susan referencing that clip that Matt is in.

R131 Susan is a mess. Awkward position for everyone promoting the movie with her. They can't really do or say anything as they know it will probably overshadow the movie. Matt's a grown man-I'd be shocked if he didn't already know how problematic Susan is. He's just be diplomatic and his typical "avoid saying anything even slightly off brand/shady".

R136, I think any actor should be aiming to be in a Marvel film. It's basically a guarantee that you'll have endless work coming your way for the next few years that won't take up much of your time because it's unlikely you'll ever have to carry a film alone. The actress from The Walking Dead can leave any time she wants now and just live off of her Marvel films but she still has time to do the TV show, produce plays, movies etc.

R137, I love his more natural look. He is going to be a very handsome man as he ages. I don't like it when he cakes on makeup. He is wearing light makeup there which is what he looks best in. No actor would go out without at least some kind of powder so his face doesn't shine/reflect. You learn early on that even if they don't have someone doing your makeup you need to be able to do it yourself. When he looks like that I feel like I could approach him and not be dumbstruck.

R132, You don't actually know how to search Twitter then.

Most of his timeline is all about Superman, then there's 15% giving out about Viper Club/Susan. Yup R148, once he's done the promo for it I'm sure he won't speak about it much, particularly if more people start to drag/critizise Susan and the movie. Does look like it was a favour to his friend as one of his CMU buddies produced it. He should take his own advice and stop doing helping out friends if he wants to avoid controversy, particularly as he never addresses anything remotely problematic.

He's lucky that Superman news dropped today R149.

To his credit it seems like he did the film right around the time he gave the interview about not doing favors for friends anymore and making things he wanted to make like Papi Chulo, which he seems proud of and he should be.

I always think back on that quote from him since he never says anything that implies anything negative ever. It was unique.

[quote]Come on most of people do not give a fuck what Sarandon does and with good push from youtube the film will be seen by many, especially since they don't have to make an actual effort to leave home to watch it.

Susan's politics/interview and Debra Messing attacking her aside (Which had to be awkward since Matt just worked with her) the biggest problem with this film is going to end up being James Foley's mother's anger.

Youtube offered her first a $10,000 and then a $30,000 dollar donation to her son's charity once they realized how closely the story mirrored her life. (Which is a clear admission of wrong doing on Youtube's part.) She said she'd accept the donation only after she saw the movie. She saw the movie and didn't like what she saw so now she's talking to people.

She wants generous donations from Google, YouTube and the director to the Foley foundation: in other words, $30K isn't enough.

She spoke to Susan and apparently believes her when she said she had no clue how closely it was based on her life (I believe Susan there) but she's going to keep speaking out against it until she's satisfied which means more interviews and more negative press.

[quote]Casting Sarandon in Feud did not harm Feud and she snapped Emmy nomination if I remember correctly. She's also attached to new Xavier Dolan's movie and Big Lebowski spin-off - she's doing fine regardless of controversy.

Feud was also Jessica Lange's project and Ryan Murphy's. It wasn't just her project. Xaiver Dolan's movie isn't expected to be a blockbuster and "Going Places" like Xaiver's movie isn't carried by her. No one is saying she's a bad actress but no film wants bad press.

I love Matt, I really do. I really want him to have his moment as Superman. He looks younger and better than most of the other guys that have played him. He'd be perfect.

The reality is, he really is too old. He'd be the oldest person to *start* a Superman franchise. He'd be contracted for 3 movies (which is normal) and end up being in his late 40s by the time he finished.

RDJ was 42 or 43 when he started playing Iron Man but that character wears a CGI suit. Michael Keaton was 38 when he started playing Batman (and he quit) and Daniel Craig was around the same age when he started playing Bond (but that character is usually older).

Ben Affleck is 46 and was around 44 when he started playing Batman but he has already quit the franchise. Otherwise they always go younger because they plan for multiple films to lock the actor down.

[quote]The clip above CLEARLY shows Rannells went for the kiss. Bomer obliged but barely. His lips are tight shut. He wasn't about to embarrass Rannells.

All of the guys were touchy feeley with each other.

Matt and Andrew were never seen hanging out with each other outside of the show but he was spotted with Jim Parsons, Michael B Washington and Zachary Quinto. Rannells was usually with Parsons. Rannells himself said last year that while he had known Matt for years he is a very private person so he didn't know much about him. Neither even knew what the other did the night before when they did the interview so it's not like they talked all the time even during the show. They're friends but they're clearly showbiz friends.

Michael B and Quinto were the two he mentioned he talked to daily before the show but he didn't see anyone else until they actually did their fight rehearsals.

Matt wouldn't post the pic of the kiss on his instagram. Simon continued to comment on and like Andrew's tweets like nothing was going on. They clearly distanced themselves after that brief kiss was hyped up to be some passionate thing and it just looked bad even if it was a silly joke.

Andrew is generally touchy feeley and was probably into Matt (even if he didn't state it) and Matt eventually realized people were getting the wrong impression and made him back off.

[quote]That's what they do in a scene in the play. Not saying you're totally wrong. None of us knows but to me they were role playing their play characters

Feeding into the duckling troll because you're bored? It just wants people to argue and fight and hate Matt. You should know better. It makes up stuff all the time just to get people to argue.

They sit across from each other and rub each other's knees and wrists. They didn't kiss during the show from what I saw since Andrew's character eventually ends up back with his boyfriend.

Finally Matt has always dated and been into older men. Not just Simon. He dated two other men we know he dated before that who were both much older than him. Andrew is not his type. They're also both bottoms which doesn't make sense at all. The only time I've ever heard him flirt with anyone was when the person was a much older and gay.

Matt interviewed Val Kilmer's son once and Val's son said having two artist/actor parents was difficult when he was younger because they'd do things like that.

“Do you feel like you have an obligation as a gay dad to tell these stories? So your kids understand the history?” Queerty asked Bomer at the Toronto International Film Festival, where Papi Chulo had its world premiere.

“Well I think it’s inherently part of my story, so I try to be part of those stories,” said Bomer, who is raising three children with husband Simon Halls. “But I try to just tell the stories that I really love and respond to, to be honest with you. And this is one of those. And looking at the script – I would have jumped at the chance to play Sean even if he were heterosexual. You know, [being gay is] a small part of who he is and what’s going on in the film. But, yeah, I love telling all kinds of different stories. I hope I get to tell more LGBTQ stories. I hope a chance to do other stories. That’s part of being an actor – hopefully, to play all different kinds of roles. I’m really proud and thankful that I get to be part of these stories, and hopefully get to continue.”

He'd have to go through his usual beauty and spa treatments, do his cleanse for a few days he promoted, hire a stylist and a makeup artist in case he is photographed, find an outfit to wear because they will definitely take photos of that, then spend the night shaking hands and smiling at everyone he ran across even if he wasn't nominated because any one of them he could end up doing business with or be judged by. That's work for him.

He did a play for a few months then had to run off and do TIFF to promote two movies. He -just- got back and has more stuff to run around and do plus another project coming up. I don't blame him for wanting some down time.

by Anonymousreply 25509/21/2018

You know he wants that tv guest star Emmy.

by Anonymousreply 25609/21/2018

So he was meant to direct something starting this week but dropped out because it was sandwiched two closely between two projects. But then he's already on location this week for a project? The logistics of that melt my brain. Unless this is another project he booked quickly after he stopped the directing gig.

by Anonymousreply 25709/21/2018

It sounded like he booked the directing gig during the time he was doing TBITB since when he was asked what he was doing next he only mentioned that. People guessed it was a Ryan Murphy project since he trusts him to direct and AHS is still in production.

Then he ended up booking this on camera gig within the past month or so and mentioned it at TIFF.

Since he couldn't prepare to direct and do this acting gig at the same time, he chose the one in front of the camera and dropped out of the directing project before he even started which is best since this will net him more attention as an actor, pay more, will be way less work, and he'll definitely be involved in promotion for it when it comes out.

Between finishing TBITB, doing Will & Grace, doing promo for the two movies he has coming out and the directing gig, the movie he just booked forced him to choose to let go of something and that was the directing. Plus he has another episode of Will & Grace coming up (so he probably won't be working on this for long) and London, Ireland and maybe the AIDS walk in Wisconsin (if he doesn't drop one or so of those).

Rashida Jones just gave birth to a baby a month ago with the guy who is the lead singer in Vampire Weekend. No one knew she was pregnant for the past few MONTHS and no one knew she had a child already until a month after she had it.

I don't think Matt and Simon are that different and that's probably coming from Simon's PR end. They have a clear sense of what is and what isn't everyone's business and are comfortable keeping things to themselves.

It is a bit strange that people are celebrating the anniversary of two people who have made it clear you'd have to pull their teeth to get them to talk about it. Even stranger, R269, I don't think the fans know the date, they just "decided" that it was on that date.

R273 he seems to be more active on Instagram than on Twitter and he follows that account so he's more likely to see posts like that. I think that's the only fan account he follows on Instagram?

I did see a good few fans tweeting him about his wedding anniversary over the last week and a bit. As R269 said, very odd since he's only ever said their wedding was in September. Its just them fishing for likes and attention off him. Clearly it's something he doesn't want to share with the public.

He's is active on Twitter in that he reads it and likes tweets from people he does and doesn't follow. He did a lot especially during the BiTB.

It's produced by Greg Berlanti-one of Simon's clients. He did say he was doing it for Kit too. Clearly not a passion project.

by Anonymousreply 27909/27/2018

He said partially for Kit, the other half would probably be getting in good with Greg since Greg is a more prolific producer than Ryan Murphy but everyone forgets that. He has more shows on air than Shonda Rhimes and they're all successful.

There's something weird here. An actor named Dwain Murphy is playing "Negative Man" on the DC streaming service's "Titans" series and should be playing him on the spin off Doom Patrol series too unless he had to drop out. The shooting also started before Matt got there.

When I zoomed in on that poster image it said:

Matt Bomer Negative Man (Some Letters) Larry Trainor

I think those two letters are VO after "Negative Man" so it's

Matt Bomer Negative Man VO (Voice Over) Larry Trainor

So he'd be the voice of Larry Trainor/Negative man which would make sense since you never have to see his face. He may do scenes before he becomes "bandaged" but otherwise he'd still have free time to do other projects and with Voice Over he could work from LA but only be in Georgia when you had to see him.

by Anonymousreply 28209/27/2018

Getting within someone's radar is one thing, R282 but they still haven't worked together until now despite knowing each other for years. Years ago, a big deal was made by Greg's husband that Matt was wearing clothing from his clothing line.

Just because he's Greg's publicist's husband doesn't mean that automatically gets him the gig. Getting in good = he does a good job, the production likes him and they're open to casting him for something else later on and hopefully that will be another adult series or better yet, another movie. Working with Ryan Murphy (another of Simon's clients) on Glee kept him working for years but he still had to do well his first time out.

If people really think having Simon as a husband didn't make Ryan Murphy look more favourably on Matt for roles than they are quite foolish.

R294 I don't think he said he wanted to take "a year off"; he said he wanted to take a bit of time to spend with the kids. Think people ran with that and assumed he meant a big break, which obviously did not happen. He's just seemed to have worked a lot this year and been away from home but he doesn't have a normal office job so he has to go where the work is. He hasn't even taken much of a break since BITB finished: filmed an episode of Will and Grace, spent about a week in Toronto for the festival, looks to be still filming on Atlanta, and will be off to London for 'x' amount of days in less than two weeks. If anything, at least he's getting regular bits of work. You can't really compare Hollywood parenting to normal parenting anyway; they have the means to have nannies and support so their careers aren't affected.

R308, he might still go to the AIDS Walk. It's only about an 1 hour and half flight. He could be there and back in half a day.

They've put his face on the cover of every piece of promotional material. I think he'd have told them already if he wasn't going to make it or asked for time to do it when he took the role in Atlanta.

I agree with R310 that I doubt he'll miss London. It seems that whatever he's doing in Atlanta, last minute recast or not, they'll either give him the time to do the things he needs to do like another episode of Will & Grace and Papi Chulo promo or he won't be down there for long at all and he'll have the time.

If really is doing some stuff live and some stuff as a voice over (since you don't see him) then that makes sense.

I read someone explain the history of the project. The DC Streaming Service, "Doom Patrol" series is a spin off of the "Titans" series. Originally they shot a back door episode for the "Titans" series with a different actor as the character. Greg Berlanti got full control of the "spin off" series, (which he didn't for Titans) and decided to recast the role Dwain played with Matt.

Having Doom Patrol will allow him to spend a few months shooting or voicing or whatever he's doing on a project, then then the rest of the year doing what he wants knowing he'll have a steady paycheck to come back to. Seasons for shows, especially streaming shows, are short now. I hope he continues to be more selective about the projects he does and does things that he likes.

I also hope he doesn't go back to Ryan Murphy anytime soon unless it's a genuinely good part.

It's just another hurdle to overcome for him and he's even said he knows that but he can't complain about it because there are worse things.

I wouldn't be surprised if they played with that in Doom Patrol. The most handsome man now has to be covered with bandages. I do wonder how much we'll see him out of bandages. It's not Arrow. He's not the star of it. I doubt the whole show is going to be half in the present and in the past. Greg is pretty good at sticking with the comics in terms of character portrayals so the character suddenly won't not need bandages.

He's an openly gay actor in his 40s R353.

Matt has had a pretty good career for someone who has to overcome that hurdle and he's done better than nearly all of them before him.

He's also very attractive which can be helpful but he could have never gotten to play Sheldon on "The Big Bang Theory." He would have never ended up as "Spock" on Star Trek. NPH already captured America's heart as a child in Doogie Howser M.D. so he can always do his hosting gigs and play goofy, crazy characters on kid's shows. At least Matt headed his own TV series as an adult. None of the others can say that.

What he should be doing, or at least what he was trying to do but stopped for whatever reason, was to make his own projects. That's what he should really be focusing on like everyone else in his age group.

by Anonymousreply 35710/05/2018

R357 it's not a big deal at all. Some people just aren't happy with anything Matt does. Him doing the Target ads is no different than him doing a campaign for Todd Synder or Armani-its the same principle really; post a pic and get money. Some just are giving him side eye for including the kids. It was a back to school campaign-the kids had to have been mentioned or shown at some point. He didn't show their faces and kept their involvement to a minimum. I've seen celebrities do sponsored posts announcing the birth of their child so all in all, he was pretty tame with those ads

by Anonymousreply 36810/06/2018

Dropping out at the last minute? Oh, I’m ever so shocked.

by Anonymousreply 36910/06/2018

It seems like he agreed to be the chair for that walk before he got the part on Doom Patrol and then just wasn't bothered doing it between filming and London. The 'sent to film in London' part is funny. Handy thing to say since he will be in London next week (unless he genuinely has filming work there but that seems unlikely).

by Anonymousreply 37010/06/2018

This reminds me of his cancellation of throwing out the first ball at the Dodgers baseball game last year. “Too busy with work.” Disappointing for fans. It did seem strange that he would go to Wisconsin, though.

by Anonymousreply 37110/06/2018

R371 it was a pretty random location indeed. Probably agreed to do it when he didn't have work scheduled and then when he got something he could just excuse himself from it. For fans who travelled or raised money it was probably disappointing but these things can happen. He's most likely flying out to London within the next few days and didn't want the hassle of jumping around to events

by Anonymousreply 37210/06/2018

Duckling and Mr Peabody have and will always be bottom feeders, of course he wasn’t going to go to Wisconsin or do anything that, you know, has nothing to offer him. Of course if Mark Ruffalo wanted him for the opening of an Artesian Well in Coachella he would be there.

by Anonymousreply 37310/06/2018

The issues are

1. He autographed posters for recipients so he knew he wouldn't be able to attend a while ago. He didn't do those last night and overnighted them up.

2. He and the event withheld that he wouldn't be attending. He was dead silent on it and so were they probably to not deter anyone from coming.

3. He most certainly is not filming in London.

4. He could have easily gone and just didn't want to. Wisconsin is less than 2 hours away via plane.

He should have posted a thank you to everyone who attended with an apology.

He could have even recorded a message.

That's what most celebrities would have done when an entire town built up an event with the idea of someone attending. It's telling that people have said that his name was never mentioned during the event at all.

But it's obvious he just didn't feel like it which is sad.

by Anonymousreply 37710/06/2018

R377 oh there was definite shade in that press release; " while we remain proud of Matt's ever impressive career, we are disappointed he cannot attend our event". Who knows his reasons for not going? Something else could have happened that messed up his schedule or maybe he still has filming/voice over commitments today. Either way, disappointing for any fan that went to try see him. I'd always be wary of spending a lot of money or travelling far to see a celebrity at an event because of hearing incidents like this.

R381 yeah it would have been easier to just say that he couldn't get out of filming commitments. "Sent to London" is such a weird phrase, as if he's been forced there against his will. Him being in London next week probably just gave them a better excuse to say he's going to London. Although, I'm guessing he's finished up with Doom Patrol.

R384, After reading R382's post I'm starting to think the run organizers haven't been in contact with him or his publicist in a while or else they could have offered up an excuse that made sense unfortunately it still reflects badly on him since people don't care about the behind the scenes politics.

As for Doom Patrol, his part was mostly voice over and he was listed as a voice over in his head shot. It's probably another reason why he took it. He wouldn't need to be there the entire shoot.

by Anonymousreply 38510/06/2018

R385 what a messy event. Looks like he cancelled a little while back but I'm guessing the event wanted to draw in people to see him. At least it wasn't London. A lot more of his fans are going to that and he actually told people he was going in this instance ha

Well he was spotted in Atlanta earlier in the week so I assume he was finishing up over the last few days.

R388 yeah I don't remember him actually saying anything about it, which perhaps is an indicator that he pulled out of it a while back? It's not like he was promoting it a lot and then just cancelled last minute.

by Anonymousreply 38810/06/2018

R388, He usually waits until the last minute to confirm that he will be somewhere if he does at all. He waited until the week before the Toronto film festival to announce he was definitely going. He did the same thing with his premiere of Viper Club. With the exception of Simon's friend's podcast, he didn't really push any of the individual stuff he did during the Boys in the Band until when we would see it or right before we would by a day or two.

Has he even written anything formally about going to London? I believe he will go but I think it's because we just "know" he will.

We usually hear about him being places from press releases or Google News articles. It's clear he had some involvement here at some point if he gave them autographed posters to hand out but it seems like it was a long time ago. There does seem to be something suspicious going on. I'm surprised he didn't make an announcement that he wouldn't be there himself since they're using his name on busses and billboards. He's usually more kind.

R389 he's not the best person for giving updates or information. His social media promotion game is pretty weak. At times it feels a little half-assed. But I don't seem to remember him even mentioning this on his Twitter. He usually does even retweet the off event thing but nothing this time.

However, he did write on Twitter that he would be going to London and he liked a fan's tweet this week about seeing him in London for the premiere. Who knows what happened with the Aids Walk? Best guess is that he cancelled because of filming Doom Patrol and the event organizers were pissed off with him for doing so. As posters said before, maybe the people behind the event didn't want to announce that he wasn't going to be there because they didn't want people to not show up.

I suppose the most realistic explanation is that he got a chance for work and decided that was more important and dropped out.

He liked some tweets from a couple of his super fans about it.

That's a, "Thank you (to them)" and a "no comment (about the event)" response if there ever was one.

A couple of them had said some not so nice (but valid - "he should have said something") things but eventually deleted their tweets since he was obviously watching as he often does even if he's not tweeting.

You don't know how fillers work, do you R426? If you have looked at a photo of him without makeup you can clearly see the lines on his head and around his eyes. He obviously has something done but I don't think it's that - and I think he even posted on his instagram an "ad" about what they do to his face. He used to have a dark spot on the right side of his jaw that slowly has "faded" away over the years. So there's definitely some microderm going on there. However, that's his JOB.

As one of the people who has seen him up close, in person, he wears a lot of foundation. He's still beautiful even without it but he does look more natural.

[quote]Had I made an effort to fundraise in hope to meet him I would've been really outraged by the way he handled that event.

I 100% understand why anyone would be upset but the problem is this idea. Money should have been raised [bold]for the charity, not for the chance to meet Matt.[/bold] People are implying they only cared about the charity because Matt's face was associated with it and they [bold]wouldn't have cared about the AIDS charity [/bold] at any other time. The implications of that are pretty screwed up.

The only time you are guaranteed to meet a celebrity is if they're having an actual meet & greet with the purpose being to meet them.

I think the problem is that this summer Matt was very available, consistently, on a daily basis, multiple times a day. So if people went to NYC and saw the show or waited outside the show or wandered through the theatre district they could have met him. Many people met him and he was kind to all of them. If you were willing to spend the money you too could have been photographed with Matt Bomer. That was a given. That's over.

The reality is: that the play was a very unique situation and people are having trouble readjusting. You are not always going to know where he is or what he's doing. You're not going to see as many photos. He's not always going to show up for events he's not contractually obligated to show up to. No one should be spending that money or traveling that distance to see someone for 30 seconds. Anyone's best chance of meeting him is hoping he does another TV show or Film where he's shooting outside just like before when he was on White Collar. We're back to that now and that is the norm. If you buy tickets for a premiere you should be going because you want to see the movie not for the chance to meet him.

It's also glaringly obvious that something went down with the organizers of the walk because it really isn't like him not to make a statement directly. I think if you've been following him for any length of time that should be a given.

by Anonymousreply 44210/08/2018

Being pissed is expected. But to take a piss on the celebrity who has shown in the past that he cares, is a tantrum. It’s all about attention if you ask me. Not about the cause but it’s “me me me”. They lost their opportunity to get a selfie with him and flaunt it on their social media.

by Anonymousreply 44410/08/2018

R441 here. I do agree this way of fundraising is totally self-indulgent and promotes obsessive fans rather than people genuinely interested in the case. However this is how all fundraising works - donors paying $25000 to take a selfie with presidential candidates or $10 for an office charity raffle - people do it for their own entertainment/satsfaction rather than becayse they care about the case. This march was organised and advertised playing on those sentiments therefore I think it's justified people are still pissed, no matter how shallow their motivation is.

Shame Matt is rather unlikely to address it as usual when something controversial happens so we will never know.

by Anonymousreply 44510/08/2018

R442 he was incredibly accommodating over the summer during the play. He came out to sign nearly all of the nights and put in a lot more effort than some of the other guys in the show. I wouldn't blame him for maybe wanting a break from fan interaction for a while. No one knows what went down at the event but he most likely dropped out because he got other work (and a paycheck) and it became a mess from there. People are making a bigger deal out of this than it actually is. As R442 said, you're never guaranteed to meet a celebrity; schedules can change, people can get sick-its all about luck.

As mentioned R445, I understand why people are upset. It's just an odd thing to be upset about when it comes to this case.

Like you said, that way of fundraising is "self-indulgent," they probably don't "care about the cause" and their motivations/anger of his absence are "shallow." It may be common but that doesn't make it right. None of those are positive things.

He is also a chair at GLSEN. He skipped last year because he was shooting but Simon went. We'll see if he shows up this year.

I get being disappointed by his cancelation and his silence on it, but most of his fans are grown women, not young teens. Moaning about how you're disappointed by a relatively minor incident is just bizarre.

I get being upset that you did not get to see him when you were really looking forward to it, but why bitch about it ad nauseam on Twitter and then get pissed off when people point out that he never actually confirmed anything himself.

His fans are really embarrassing, and he probably sees all of it.

Watch the gay mockumentary Man of the Year about the gay Playgirl centerfold Dirk Shafer. It’s on YouTube. It’s shows how the centerfold encouraged a crazy fan/stalker by keeping up correspondences on a 900 number service Playgirl offered. No difference from what’s going on here.

The 900 number was not a phone sex line, it was just a mailbox where you could drop a message to the model, and the model would respond with just niceties or call you on your birthday or whatever.

by Anonymousreply 47410/09/2018

That's common with some really attractive people R464.

When you grow up like that, you're not used to people not liking you for some reason or being angry at you. People want you to like them. They never bother to confront you about issues. They overlook or forgive easily. People like that never develop proper coping skills so their first instinct is to leave whenever something bad happens.

That being said, he seems exceptionally nice, but that probably makes it harder for him to deal with adversity on top of everything else.

This happens all the time. Celebraties will cancel last minute. There was no guarantee that they will get to meet him, take photos etc. He sent a message wee hours of the morning of the walk. The organizers didn’t think it was that big of a deal to post it. Other than his 2 fans I haven’t heard any other complains. The organizers know. It’s not like he personally jilted them. Hope they learn their lesson. He’s obviously not as involved as those fans. If they think he owes them a personal apology. That’s hilarious. Charity should be charitable.

by Anonymousreply 48510/09/2018

I hate to call judgment on a a show that hasn't aired yet but if it's like the other DC shows Greg produces the real problems are: the show features characters that aren't necessarily popular in the DC universe & the show is on a paid subscription service.

I'm already sure it will get a second season since the DC subscription network is new and they wouldn't want to cancel a show so quickly. I'm even sure Matt got paid well for the little he had to do because DC is putting money into the shows since they're brand new. I guess the good thing is with a regular tv series gig he can get back to focusing on other things and relax like spending time with his family and waiting for the right roles to come along since he knows he'll have money coming in at some point in the year and probably even get to go to Comicon and keep his face out there.

Lois & Clark and Smallville were cheesy as fuck R484. I think Greg's shows run the gamut. You can't really judge the costumes by the photos because they do tend to look better under the right lighting except for the Black Lighting costumes which always look cheesy as fuck.

I guess a good note for Matt Bomer fans is that if he's on a comic book show he might be able to go to Comicon next year. They don't make it easy to get tickets at the last minute. You have to start planning the year before. The best thing to do is to register for a Comicon Member ID now and then wait for the open registration (ID gets you into the system but it's not the same as a badge) if they announce the show as being present. They shut that ID system down before they start their usual "Open Registration" sales and you need to have one before they even announce when they're doing that. So get the Membership ID registered, wait to see when the sales are and then wait to see if the show is going to be there.

I don't think he's hurting but you can't sit on your butt as an actor unless you have a TV series or a franchise film trilogy.

Stuff you could have read for, went to meetings for, (and all of that associated stuff) you miss out on while taking a break so that means films being shot the following year you can't be in unless there's a last minute casting change. They were planning Papi Chulo a year before they actually got around to shooting it. He agreed to work on Anything years before it actually was produced.

We never know what he’s doing until he announces it. There is no reason to think he isn’t doing anything now or in the future. In 2018 he will have done a couple of movies, a Broadway show, and a TV appearance, and attended a couple of award shows and film festivals. Plus directing an episode of Versace. Nobody knew about any of that in the late summer/early fall of 2017 when The Last Tycoon was just canceled and he was being criticized for making Anything. Then everyone said we would never get to see Anything, but we did. As pointed out above, he obviously planned those things long before we heard about them.

Everyone on here and Twitter figured out it was a bunch of BS, for attention, not even about either of them since she was kissing their butts an hour or two later. Then Twitter destroyed her, especially after she lorded her contact with them over other people.

I think they like her because she did something no one else has done: she overlooked the half of the pair everyone talks about (Matt) and noticed the half that (non-Matt) fans make fun of, Simon. While fans seem to appreciate them as a pair, people don't seem to focus on just him. She really went out of her way for Simon and he liked it enough to contact her to thank her directly.

You do know Matt lived in Ireland & worked as a waiter and bartender in Galway, long before all of this right? He rarely ever talks about it but he used to quite a bit.

That's where he is at the moment according to a recent instagram pic from another account.

by Anonymousreply 58410/15/2018

Another great review for Papi Chulo:

After a mental breakdown whilst presenting the weather on live TV after a bad break up, Sean (Matt Bomer) is told to take some time off. During this time, he hires Ernesto (Alejandro Patiño) for work labour, but soon begins to pay him to go on excursions and day trips he used to enjoy with his partner. Director John Butler has described Papi Chulo as a comedy about loneliness, but there’s a lot more hidden within the depths of this hugely enjoyable film. There’s a sense that the dynamic duos adventures could become tedious or repetitive as the plot advances but Bomer and Patiño bring an abundance of charm to the pairs’ friendship. As Ernesto’s “job” becomes less work and more play, a mutual respect seems to form between them. As Sean uses Ernesto to unload his personal issues, the mismatch friendship blossoms into something we genuine believe in. We see Sean not allowing people to bad mouth Ernesto and witness Ernesto recognising the pain Sean is in and being there for him. When Papi Chulo wants to tackle the more serious, sadder side to Sean’s handling of his break-up, it does so with a natural glint. Because Bloomer has portrayed Sean as such a kind-hearted man throughout, we do get swept up with emotion as his anxieties and grief get the better of him. Late nights alone with nothing but the distant hyenas to keep him company are harrowing to watch. As word gets around about what he’s up to, the mockery begins. Because we see his life in full however, you feel so awful when little comments clearly get to him. He wears a mask when around others, hiding all his true feelings. When his emotions start to crack through this however, it really hits you.

Bomer is astounding in a seemingly simple role. His dilemma with painting over the circle left by his ex’s tree is so interesting as he shows us that this is Sean’s main coping mechanism. Like the empty circle on his decking, he is merely wanting to paint over the issue, despite a lot more work needing to be done. His late night phone calls to his ex show the vulnerabilities many have suffered when not fully getting over someone. It’s so uncomfortable to watch as it’s such a raw and perfect representation of loneliness, something we don’t see portrayed to this level often. A brilliant script allows writer-director John Butler to tackle cultural barriers inside the stories main plot. Sean tries extra hard to make Ernesto feel welcomed into his home and to treat him as a friend, not an employee. Ernesto realises quickly Sean is gay but this doesn’t change his mood on the matter, he still shrugs in agreement at things he doesn’t fully understand. In these tense political times, seeing a middle class gay man and an working class Latino forming a friendship over one’s battle with loneliness really help remind you how wholesome and great humans can be. Papi Chulo has been the surprise of London Film Festival this year. By not relying on just having a mismatched pair go on wacky adventures, we’re treated to a story that shows heartbreak and grief as well as bittersweet happiness and moments of pure charm. Bomer’s performance is near perfect and this in turn leads to a huge investment into Sean’s personal battles. It’s a timely film, but unlike others it brings a huge smile to your face. It’s a reminder of how good the world can be at a time when it really isn’t that great. Papi Chulo is currently screening at Film Festivals around the World. There is currently no distribution deal in place for a UK release, but we’ll keep you updated as soon as we know.

One of the first rules of Datalounge, even in the Help section is [bold]DON'T FEED THE TROLLS.[/bold]

The Duckling troll is a troll and will always say horrible things about Matt just to piss people off when everyone is being positive especially about that beautiful picture of Matt and Simon.

If you press the button to the Bottom Right (of every entry) that has the Cross Out Circle and the person's head all of the offender's posts will disappear.

If you press the FF button the post gets reported and ends up in "Flames and Freaks." If it gets reported enough the person is banned but only do that if someone is doing something crazy like stalking someone.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
