Matt Bomer Says 'It Was Great to Share' Emmy Nomination with Husband

Matt Bomer Says 'It Was Great to Share' Emmy Nomination with Husband After dropping upwards of 40 pounds for his role in "The Normal Heart," it's all about love and family right now for Matt Bomer. Bomer, 36, was "blown away and just so grateful" when his name was announced today as an Emmy Award nominee for best supporting actor for his portrayal of Felix in the HBO adaptation of Larry Kramer's 1985 play. After the "White Collar" star dropped to an astonishing 130 pounds for the role, shedding the chiseled features he usually shows off in his hit TV show or movies like "Magic Mike," and even though it was a long road to this apex point, Bomer said it all culminated in one call this morning from his husband Simon Halls. "I'm in New York and was getting ready to go to work on 'White Collar.' I got a phone call from my husband and he shared the news with me," Bomer said. "It was so great to get to share that moment with him, because I had to separate myself from my family for a while to play this role. I'm sure when I was 130 pounds, I wasn't always in the best mood, so it was nice to get to share a happy moment with him."...
