Found out about this last night, got super excited, then completely forgot to post it… but for a good reason! I was totally drooling over Hugh Jackman’s bulging man muscles in that movie where he does the superhero thing. Who cares what it was called, or even if it had some sort of plot. Bulging. Muscles.
So, thats why I forgot. But anyway, this is pretty exciting! Major cutie Ben Whishaw has come out (though there have been rumors for a long time) and revealed that he has been married to his partner since last August. Congrats to them on their one year, and congrats to Ben for making the big leap and making me look forward to the next Bond movie EVEN MORE. You can read my other post on Ben by clicking here (lots of pics!) and below is the article from Queerty.
British actor Ben Whishaw, best-known for taking over the iconic role of Q in the most recent James Bond caper Skyfall, has not only confirmed speculation that he’s gay but revealed he’s “married” to his partner, Australian composer Mark Bradshaw.
The couple met on the set of Bright Star, a 2009 Australian film about poet John Keats and had a civil union ceremony in Sydney last August, reports Daily Mail.
Whishaw, who has played numerous gay characters in films such as 2008′s Brideshead Revisited and last year’s Cloud Atlas, was somewhat ambiguous about his sexual orientation in an interview with Out magazine two years ago. He noted the importance of openly gay role models but stopped short of coming out, saying that he was in the middle of a “transitional thing.”
Now the actor’s publicist has removed any doubt, saying, “Ben has never hidden his sexuality, but like many actors he prefers not to discuss his family or life outside of his work. Due to speculation, I can confirm that Ben and Mark entered into a civil partnership in August 2012. They were proud to do so and are very happy.”
