That would be awesome! Hopefully one day people don't need to come out anymore, but it doesn't matter who you fall in love with. I didn't have to come out as straight, it shouldn't be something that defines you and labels you. It is a beautiful part of who you are.
Lucky man- Rainer is gorgeous!!!
I think everyone already knew about Victor, even his wikipedia page says he lives with his partner Ranier.
Good for him, his partner is hot too!
Yay!!!! I actually didn't know about Victor. Good for him! Mazel!
I didn't know. (Not that it makes any difference). I thought this was the guy rumored to have an affair with Jennifer Garner years ago. I just can't keep up with gossip anymore
Maybe I've been hiding under a rock, but I had no idea he was gay. Good for him for being true to himself. Hopefully someday people will be able to come out and live their lives without fear.
Well, there goes my shot with Vic!! Lol. Love him.
To me, it's just like wondering if the blonde is natural or the bottled variety. It's just something you wonder about, that is all. It usually doesn't define the person or determine if I like them or not but it's just another facet about them as a whole.
I'm with JSierra – I love love, and want everyone to find it. I didn't get clearance from anyone regarding who I fell in love with, and no adult should ever have to apologize for loving another adult.
No the rumor is Victor had an affair with Bradley Cooper..and I believe it.
@SusanB, I've read that he's a father figure to her – didn't he give her away at her wedding to Ben?
Good for Victor (and yes, hot BF!).
Loved him since "Sweeney Todd" and "Molly Dodd." No big surprise here.
I thought he was out too, it just seemed general knowledge, like Jodie.
He actually came out awhile ago. He's been with his partner for 13 years and he's always taken him to events and red carpet premieres. It's never been a secret, but he's such a private person he never saw the need to "come out" to the media. Both Garber and his partner are the godparents toViolet Affleck.
Love me some Victor Garber and his partner is HOT!!! I wonder if Bradley comes around for a 3some once in awhile to curtail his anger.
Honestly had no idea he was gay. His acting chops are far more worth noting than who he comes home to. Let that be a lesson to those who "need the beards."
Hooray!! Out and Proud! I'm so proud of him and Jodie Foster for coming out. It's such a wonderful thing when people come out. True, it was sort of an open secret, but the more people that are proud and admit it, the easier it will be on the others and help everyone to accept it and realise that it's ok. Crossdressing too by the way.
"Til I'm with you then, I'm with you there…Sweetly buried in your yellow hair….(duh duh duh duh duh, duh duh duh duh duh duuuuuhhhhh…….fin)"
LOVE Victor Garber in "Sweeney Todd"—He played the romantic hero, it was when he was in his 20's. SO AWESOME.
He also had my favorite line in "Titanic"–'She's made of iron, sir, I assure you she WILL sink' (or some such).
He is SO hot. I think modern women easily look past gayness, and still fantasize. I hope this helps others come out.
I never knew but I'm always the last to know everything, ha ha!
Such a handsome couple! Love Victor!
Victor Garber is gay? I had no idea.
I also have never heard of him before today, so that may be a factor in me not knowing…
I had no idea either. Love him, he is a really handsome man and kudos for landing that fox
I always thought this was just an open secret.
I remember a poster on here who refused to believe he was gay and always came on here insisting that he is Violet's actual dad, through an affair with Garner and that's why her name is Violet. That same posted also said that Seraphina was the product of an affair with a surfer, hence the name.
I have loved VG since "E.N.G." Anybody remember that show?
I like him also for his close relationship with Mrs. Affleck. They seem like two intelligent people who have been solid friends for years. I like that Ben cast him in "Argo". He was perfect as the Canadian ambassador.
I remember meeting him years ago he was very shy and polite and I was thinking its Liberace, I thought he was brilliant in that role.
I say good for him, but who cares? I don't understand the stigma people put on themselves because they are gay. Who they choose to date is only important to me if it's gossip. I could really care if it's a man or a woman.
I had no idea either. But I find the idea of Bradley Cooper thrown into the mix every once in awhile as incredibly HOT!
I've always loved Victor, and wow, Rainer is hawt! Good for them.
I thought he was out already. He's always kind of interesting to watch and I've always heard he's a nice guy.
Rainer Andreesen is one of my favorite contemporary artists.
I always like people so much more after they come out. It's like you can see their relief.
Yay, good for them. They look so happy…
I can't see him as anything over than his Titanic character.
He will always be a badass Spy Daddy to this Alias fan! Love him. He has such a lovely smile, too.
"we can look forward to more people being true to themselves and open and sharing so that less people have to hide or be scared for who they are."
and blinds don't centre around someone's sexuality, inadvertantly 'outing' people, right Enty?
I thought he already came out. I love him.
good one, georgie:)
Now THAT is funny!
I like Victor Garber too, ever since Sleepless in Seattle.
But the first thing I thought when I saw this photo was, "OMG, why is Victor Garbor dating Danny Bonaducci??"
Awesome! What a handsome couple..congrats.
Happy for him and his partner, I'm sure the people who matter already know and this is just an afterthought. Wish all who live in fear hiding their true selves can find the courage to be who they are and for everyone else to let live and let live!
I also was in the dark about this. Happy for him & his man.
I always see such a kind sort of aura or vibe coming off him. Love him.
Either I knew and forgot, never knew, and/or it doesn't matter but, damn, he's hot and if he and Anderson Cooper coulda made babies, well…
Holy balls! His partner is HOT! I don't care about gay or straight. Sexy is sexy and right about now I could go for a Rainer Andreesen/Matt Bomer sandwich.
Thanks for the link, Agent. His artwork is phenomenal.
Victor will always be Jesus in Godspell to me. Love that movie.
Yay for Victor! Always liked him and his man is HOT!
Sakura, he'll always be Spydaddy to me to. Love him!
mygeorgie, we can dream. The non-outing feels just as wrong, especially when you have a no outing policy.
Renoblondee—ITA about how he just looks so genuine and nice.
Guess what? He's CANADIAN! Of course…that's where the 'nice beam' comes from, imo. I thought he was British forever, probably because he played British in "Sweeney Todd", and that's how I first 'met' him.
Anyway, he was so perfect as the brave & kind Canadian Ambassador in "Argo" last year. Can't play a Canadian diplomat unless you OOZE 'nice', I would say.
Interestingly, on Rainer's online gallery, there's a commissioned portrait featured of Mr. Bradley Cooper:
ARGH, sentence structure:
"there's a commissioned portrait of Mr. Bradley Cooper featured:"
Am I the only one who loved him in Eli Stone? The husband here didn't know about Jodie when I mentioned she had publicly come out at he GG – but his response was what you'd hope for "Huh. Didn't know she was. Cool."Half the time I don't know if an actor or actress I'm watching is single or married, let alone his/her sexual orientation. Who cares? To anyone who says they see the character differently if they know the actor/actress isn't hetero? I say watch one episode of "How I Met Your Mother" and tell me you don't buy NPH as Barney Stinson, ladies man.
I didn't know he was gay! OR Canadian! Bad canuck. I love him, though, my favourite will always be the scene in Titanic where he goes down with the ship.
Maybe the reason headlining stars that have to carry the movie have so much trouble is that people tend to think they are like their characters and it would be too hard to imagine gay playing straight, etc. Like in the way that Tom Hanks usually plays someone really likeable or Denzel Washington plays someone really serious. After approximately 100 films like that, you assume they are really likeable and / or serious. But make out with one dude! And some people will just not look past it. Personally, I think dudes making out is hot, but that's just me.
A friend of mine had dinner with VG and a bunch of other theatre folk a couple of years ago. He said he was utterly charming and down to earth. It was known then that he was quietly out.
No, not Jen. Think male. BC.
I love Victor Garber. He is incredibly handsome and was awesome in Titanic and as spy daddy. I love that he and Garner have a dad/ daughter type relationship too
That was a good catch on the painting Dewie.
That red headed guy is HO!
I mean HOT! That guy is hot, not ho.
Good for him and HOT DAMN!
Good for him loved him since Alias. His guy is good looking I love men with beards
So is Bradly Cooper next? I thought the rumor he had an affair with Garber.
Is it me, or does he look like a bearded ginger Don Draper?
