If there was ever a man befitting of the honor of Small Screen Girl’s first Man Crush Monday feature, it is television and movie star, Matt Bomer. He currently stars on “American Horror Story: Hotel” as a blood-lovin’ vampire beside the mother monster, Lady Gaga. And let’s just say his new job displays Bomer’s spectacular assets.
I fell in love with Bomer during his breakout role was as a charismatic art thief-turned-FBI informant on USA’s “White Collar,” which ended last year after six seasons. It gave Bomer a platform to scam, cheat, angst and steal the hearts of fans everywhere all in the name of justice.
Bomer--husband to Simon Hall and father of three--parlayed that fame to guest starring roles on “Glee,” smaller parts in bigger films like 2011’s “In Time,” and 2011’s stripperific drama, “Magic Mike.”
But don’t let that ridiculously symmetrical face, piercing blue eyes and chiseled abs fool you, Bomer has serious chops. He earned a Golden Globe and Emmy nomination for his heartbreakingly candid turn as an AIDS patient in HBO’s “The Normal Heart”—a role that demanded he lose an alarming amount of weight.
He turned 38 yesterday, so I say we take a moment to celebrate the beauty that is Matt Bomer. Oh, yeah and have some cake.
You can see Bomer every Wednesday on “American Horror Story: Hotel” on FX. “Magic Mike XXL” is currently out on DVD.
