Came out too soon, appears too thin with an eating disorder, and looks perpetually tired around the eyes.

I’d still eat his ass, though.

by Anonymousreply 1November 30, 2023 6:39 PM

Bit of a famewhore. I find his incessant fabulousness tiring. He'll be Tom Daley if he's not careful.

[quote]appears too thin with an eating disorder

He looks perfectly healthy in Fellow Travelers, with a jacked torso I'd kill for. No signs of a quick starvation course that some male models and actors do before scenes to achieve a slight indentation in their abs either. Also, people with an eating disorder don't usually have perfect glowing skin like he does in those closeups.

I will concede that he is hungry for fame (or just success?) but he also has the requisite talent to back it up.

How charitable of you, r1.

He's about 5'6 short. A diddy man.

He’s gay, gorgeous, & talented. Of course, DL hates him!

He's pretty much my ideal.

Not sure if hitting the gym, bulking up and thirst photos were a condition of Bridgerton but he was so skinny in his 20s.

What r6 said. He’s hot, very talented and seems like a hard-worker. What is possibly the issue?

How is he a fame whore? Because he promotes his work and has an Instagram?

by Anonymousreply 10November 30, 2023 8:01 PM

^ yeah. He's plainly gone Hollywood. It's too bad. At the beginning of his career his interviews were laid back and grounded. He was a nice kid, good role model. Now he's smearing cosmetics across his face.

by Anonymousreply 11November 30, 2023 8:03 PM

Cosmetics? Noooooooooo!

by Anonymousreply 12November 30, 2023 8:16 PM

He’s good at disappearing into a role. In stark contrast to his Bridgerton character who is a straight heartthrob, he plays a convincing gay nerd (with an American accent) on Fellow Travelers. Looking forward to seeing him in Wicked.

Good on him and much respect to him for being out and authentic. I don't know much about him but he seems like someone to be proud of.

We all know it's tough so kudos to him. He was good in Bridgeton and Broadchurch. He's a pretty good actor and nice on the eye. I had no idea he was gay until I saw a thread here after watching Bridgeton. I haven't seen him in anything else but will try Fellow Travellers at some point.

He is also not 5'6"! He's around 5'11".

Guys with those doe-like dark brown eyes are always captivating to me. He's dreamy.

Listen…Shonda Rhimes always knows how to pick the hottest actors with the most charisma. You don’t have to enjoy her kind of shows but if you know anything about her, you know it’s true. I saw this guy on his first episode of Bridgerton and even with the bad mutton chops they had him in at the time…I knew he was going to be a star

He's a very intelligent, grounded, decent guy. I posted up thread I was a bit dismayed at how publicity whore he'd gone, but he hasn't fundamentally changed in his outlook, despite the frippery. And I can't really blame him for enjoying himself. It's too bad there aren't more role models like him. That story about the coffee shop is astonishing. Should it be?

by Anonymousreply 36December 12, 2023 3:10 PM

He was in the audience of "An Audience with Kylie" that aired here in the UK at the weekend. He was sat next to another gay actor, Hugh Skinner. I assume they're just friends?

JB was queening it out to Kylie's hits with the rest of the audience. We love to see it.

R48 I’d put Matt Bomer on that list after Fellow Travelers.

R51 They are actors who formed a deep friendship while making an emotional show and are currently doing press to promote it. They have a great rapport. It’s fun to watch them, but they’ll both move on to other projects soon.

If the ranking is sinking that low, might as well include Billy Porter...

I wouldn't fall in love with either of them. Actors are energy sucks. The gorgeous successful ones especially. Because they have mastered the smoke an mirror chemistry of allure. They can be nice and interesting friends.

by Anonymousreply 56December 20, 2023 3:11 PM

Yeah Bomer turned down the biggest movie of the year (BARBIE) because he didn’t want to leave his kids or husband for a few months or whatever the shoot took. He’s not ditching his family for a guy who lives in the UK no matter how cute he is.
