Matt Bomer in New York City

Posted on January 18, 2013

Le sigh. He can hold our coffee cups anytime he wants. Or something.


Matt Bomer meets fans as he leaves a taping of Live! with Kelly and Michael in New York City.

Every single thing he’s wearing is alternately giving us life and inspiring jealous rage.

Oh, Matt Bomer. Why must you taunt us so with your perfection?

      WHY IS HE SO GORGEOUS? It drives me crazy. Love the glasses, love the coat. Love. Love. Love.


      • Gayer Than Thou

        The glasses make the whole thing.  I swoon.

      • LeBarron

        Agreed.  I also love the coat and glasses of the chick in the second photo.  They both make me wish I had cooler glasses before I had LASIK.  Alas, nothing beats being glasses- and contacts-free.

    • ralish

      He looks amazing (as usual) but that hair has to go.

    • Sara__B


    • mamafitz

      love love love the glasses and that coat.  

      • Sobaika

        He looks like Clark Kent in those glasses!

        • j_anson

          Wow, now, THAT’s a Superman remake I would watch. Unlike that no-doubt-godawful thing they’re coming out with this year.

          • Sobaika

            It has Henry Cavill and Christopher Meloni in it so I am obligated to watch it. Amy Adams though, as Lois Lane? I like her but that seems like serious miscasting. Maybe she’ll nail it.

            • fursa_saida

              Oh, man, Stabler is in it? Crap, I might have to see it. I feel like Amy Adams will play it well, but she’s ultimately too old for this. (Not saying she’s old in general; I think she’s beautiful and has done some incredible character work, but I see Lois Lane in like her late twenties.)

            • TropiCarla

              Stabler!! I long for him weekly.

            • fursa_saida

              I long for him ALWAYS. His criminal-subduing steely blue gaze will live in our hearts forever.

            • Sobaika

              Yup! I think it was the first job he got after leaving SVU. Any movie that has the smarts to cast him can’t be that bad. I have no idea who he’s playing though and will kind of disappointed if it’s a tiny part.

            • fursa_saida

              Any movie that has the smarts to cast him can’t be that bad

              It’s like, on the one hand I totally agree with this, and on the other…Hansel and Gretel starring Jeremy Renner (who, like his looks or not, is a great actor) is about to come out. And I am going to get drunk and see it and LOVE IT, but that won’t change the fact that it’s still going to be terrible.

            • lovelyivy

               I feel your pain here. That movie looks dreadful, but…. Jeremy Renner!

              Side note: the other day I was doing a mini-Angel rewatch, and who turns up as a villain in S2 but Jeremy Renner! It’s amazing how much hotter he is now than he was then. He is pulling a Clooney- waaaay more appealing with age.

            • Goldie

              Did you see him on True Blood last season?  IIRC, he may have even been naked.  :)

            • lovelyivy

               This may be reason for me to start watching True Blood again…

            • barbarienne

              Depends what they’re doing with the role, eh? Amy Adams can’t possibly be more miscast than 23-year-old Kate Bosworth was in Superman Returns. That was one of the worst casting choices ever.

              (This should have been a reply to Sobaika; sorry about that.)

            • fursa_saida

              Welp, gonna reply back anyway. You make a good point. I haven’t seen Superman Returns (my last memory of Superman is a vague impression of Christopher Reeve), but yeah, that sounds like a terrible decision for all involved. And there’s definitely room for a more mature Lois Lane; after all, she’s supposed to be a successful journalist.

            • lovelyivy

              Yeah she was terrible. Lois Lane has to be tough and a little bit cocky but still remain sympathetic and likable. Sounds simple, but actually extremely difficult to pull off. Fair or not, Kate Bosworth just is not anyone’s idea of tough. She doesn’t even really reach spunky IMO.

              Amy Adams can definitely do likable, and I think she is skilled enough to also do tough. I am afraid this movie is going to be dreadful, but I do not have a problem with the main casting so far (they had me seeing this movie from picking the delicious Cavill).

            • Alloy Jane

              Amy Adams, eh?  That might work, especially if they play her as her own age and not try to young her up.  Lois Lane was a tough cookie, so casting her with a mature woman might be interesting…

          • Rand Ortega

             Anne Rice put on her Facebook page he’s her 1st choice to play “Louis” in the “Tale Of The Body Thief” that Ron Howard’s Imagine Entertainment is currently developing as a movie. Me likes!

          • terpsichory

             I think he actually was in line for Superman Returns but then they changed directors and Brandon Routh got th job. Or something…

            • fursa_saida

              He was definitely in line for some sort of Superman project, not sure if it was that or something else. 

          • John Spodick

            He lost out on the Superman remake in 2005 to Brandon Routh.  He almost had it, and it went down to the wire….but…

            • How to Faint

              What a terrible mistake. But also kind of lucky for Bomer since it was a terrible movie.

        • mamafitz

           he does!  I am not a Superman fan, but I would totally go see that remake. 

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          A really hot Clark Kent!

        • Goldie

          You know Matt Bomer was supposed to play Superman in the last movie.  When Brett Ratner dropped out as director, the new director went with Brandon Routh instead.  I’m so glad that things worked out better for Matt in the long run.  I’ve followed him ever since he was on Guiding Light.

          • LeBarron

            I thought I was the only one who remembers him from Guiding Light!  I loved him as Ben Reade.  My teenage self totally shipped Ben and Marina.

      • Elizabeth Silverstein

        ME TOO! I bet we would really get along in real life 😉
        This boy is dreamy, yes? Yes. I need to procure this outfit and put my husband in it.

        • mamafitz

           i bet i could help you make that happen.  :)

        • StellaZafella

           Hell, I could put MY husband in this outfit, too…sadly, it ain’t gonna make him turn into Matt The Bomb!

          Oh well, one can only wish.

          • Qitkat

            True, true, but speaking for myself I would be thrilled to see my husband dress with such sartorial perfection. At least a couple of these picture can go in my desktop folder called *How I Wish my Husband Dressed* 😉

    • lexilexi

      You guys are so adorably superficial.

    • Silly Grrl

      Man, he really is fucking perfect, isn’t he? Almost too pretty. Almost. 

    • Danielle Lisle

      You could cut glass with those cheekbones.

      • mamafitz

         you could cut yourself slapping them.  ~~sigh~~

        • fursa_saida

          Do I spy a Sherlock reference?

    • Sobaika

      Woof. Happy Friday!

    • homofascist

      That last picture with the glasses really pushes this over the edge…

      • StellaZafella

         YES and this! (Tho’ I’m not someone who EVER thought I’d get heated up over someone wearing my father’s glasses!)

    • H3ff

      He’s serving up some Brad Goreski realness with those specs (MAJOR compliment to Brad there…).

    • Maya KC

      That is some cartoon hair. Love the coat, though.

    • Alyssa Stanfield

      Thank you for the afternoon eye candy! Much appreciated!!! :) I wish I could get my husband to dress like him…

    • Athenrein

      GAH. WANT. (the man *and* the coat)

    • sablehunter

      Now THAT’s a perfect hem.  *swoons*

      • terpsichory

         And a perfect ham. *bites*

    • Annabelle Archer

      And then he puts on the glasses and my panties fall right off.

      • Kristin McNamara

        hahahahaha just laughed out loud at this. I freakin love this website.

    • DinaSews


    • Tracy Walker

      ooh those glasses – turnin’ smart and sexy up a notch.

    • AllForUSophia

      All this AND glasses? You’re killing me man!

      • Lori Wade Miller

         The glasses sent me over the edge.

    • Jessica Rowe

      He’s too perfect for me.  But I like her hat.  I’d trip her and take that hat.

      • MissAmynae

        and her boots.

    • Nicholas

      Matt Bomer wants the world to know that he was robbed (ROBBED) for the Superman role.

      And on another note, this is seriously WERQ material. I am kinda befuddled you didn’t hand it to him. Too informal?

    • Antonia O’Connor Donnelly

      Perfection. I love everything about this.

    • joancarol

      Oh my…

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      Why do I always get him confused with the guy playing Superman, Henry Cavill? And what is wrong with me because while I can objectively see that both are drop-dead gorgeous, my ovaries remain strangely placid? 

      • Imasewsure

        You can definitely appreciate their beauty but have a totally different type that sets you off….I appreciate fine china for instance, but all of my dishes are Fiestaware (analogy applies to my deep crushes as well)

      • formerlyAnon

         Some of us are just not moved by the technically near-perfect. I’m sure it has something to do with the gene pool and perpetuation of the species. Mother Nature: tricky like that.

        • Nonmercisansfacon

          Haha I like the gene pool explanation. This  may explain my near clinically insane obsession with Richard Armitage who is not as classically beautiful as Bomer. 

    • GorgeousThings

      Love that coat. Any idea whose it is? 

    • Rand Ortega

      He’s stunningly beautiful. Too pretty to be Superman. He needs his own specially created superhero just for him. Stupendous Man or something. LOL.

    • random_poster

      That last shot with the eyeglasses…wow, wow, WOW!  

    • Pants_are_a_must

      I love that he and his assistant (?) matched colors and concepts of their outfits. Awesome.

    • greyhoundgirl

      It is funny to me how much everyone loves him in the glasses!  And I agree–I’m not even a straight girl (or a gay man) and I think that once the glasses go on he looks even hotter!  I call it the Rachel Maddow factor.

      • MissAmynae

        Hey, I’m a straight girl, and in total agreement on your Rachel Maddow factor. Smart, confident, gorgeous, and can mix a mean cocktail?  Recipe for the perfect girl crush!  

        • MajorBedhead

           Straight girl here, too, and my girl-crush on Rachel Maddow knows no bounds. She’s a hot-sexy-smart-geek. I love that.

          Whoever this Matt Bomer is is none too shabby himself. Especially in the last shot.

          • Snailstsichr

             Yup to the straight girl Rachel Maddow crush. I wish I looked a tenth as hot in my glasses.

          • formerlyAnon

             Rachel Maddow is awesome. So awesome that I imagine she’s hell to live with, since everyone must have flaws, right?

    • bhl_1123

      good gawd!  

    • jilly_d

      Le purrrr! Le sigh! I don’t know who he is but DAY-UM!

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Yummy Matt.  The perfect dessert while I’m home on lunch break.

    • Ashleigh Boutelle

      and THEN he pulls out the awesome glasses!???! Not fair
      Love the hair
      Who made the coat? 

      • Louise Bryan

        Matt Bomer made the coat.

        • formerlyAnon

           Good one!

    • Louise Bryan

      Even sexier with the glasses….

    • MGMcD

      Oh wow, that is the opposite of scrolldown fug. That was yum, sigh, double sigh, adorable, gorgeous, sigh again, YOWSA. Mommy like the specs, Matty. 

    • ChiKat67

      So, so pretty!

    • rtuko

      My husband has a total heterosexual-I-don’t-know-what-you’re-talking-about crush on Matt Bomer.

      Well, okay. He’ll admit to having a total man-crush on Matt Bomer’s hair, but we both know the truth.

    • MzzPants

      Oy.  I was fauning over him and then he put the glasses on and NOW I’M BLAZING WITH LUSTFULL DESIRE.

      Yeah, I gotta’ little nerd thang.

    • GSMSF

      I love the bevy of unbemused PR people that are always surrounding celebrities.  They always provide a touch of reality when looking of these photos, and remind me of how jaded and low paid most PR people must be.

    • snarkykitten

      his assistant or whoever (the girl in the hat) is also looking fierce!

    • MilaXX

      *drools* His hubby is one lucky man.

    • Janet B

      His coat is gorgeous. He’s gorgeous.

      His glasses remind me of my dad’s from 50 years ago.

    • LipstickForPigs

      Hubba Hubba…Yes. Please.

    • anotherkate

      Nuughhh. If only he played for my team.

    • Barbora

      In love, sigh sigh.

    • Elizabeth Denton

      he really is the perfect man. They film White Collar in my neighborhood and I’m always staring like a stalker 

    • decormaven

      Thank you for wearing a tailored coat. Thank you for wearing some decent footwear. Thank you for a well-knotted tie. Giving gratitude where gratitude is due.

    • MissMariRose

      Ohmygawd. That picture of him in glasses.

      I died. I’m dead now. 

    • Qitkat

      Oh, no! Not AR hair! That’s got to go.
      Comehere Matt, let me smooth that down a bit for you.
      Damn, don’t care that he plays for the other team. Hawt, sexy, smooth, sweet…

    • Qitkat

      lol. I just noticed that Matt’s shirt (which I love) matches the folding chair in the foreground. Or whatever it is.

    • TigerLaverada

      Dayum, he’s almost up there in Tim Olyphant territory as fantasy material.

      • ailujailuj

        Holy tiger… you got that right. Tim Olyphant is all kindsa skwerky fun.
        But wid a name like Matt Boner, he got edge. Advantage Matt. It’s his smile that makes me smudge tho. 5 swoons.
        LOVE T & Lo’s site so much I cried the other day.

    • margaret meyers

      His car coat is wonderful — perfectly fitted and complete with the quilted “liner” showing.  It’s a great look, with just enough detail.

    • The Hilariest

      I was all swoony until I got to the pic with the glasses. And then I died. Cheese and rice, that man is just… mmmmmmmmmm….

    • Zippypie

      He is just a stunning man.  Delish.  New White Collar coming soon…..

    • Scott Isaacs

      *swoon* I can’t find a fault. At first I thought I could with those glasses, but on second look…nope. Those are pretty perfect, too. God.

    • Kristy Evans

      Those glasses are AMAZE. He is so beautiful. 

    • Emily

      Love him.  Perfection indeed.

    • Adrienne Melton

      sigh for sure.  He’s just absolutely adorable.  Loving the glasses in that last pic.  SWOON.

    • Joyce VG

      Le Sigh

    • kimmeister

      Dang, the guy must have really slim legs.

    • Kim Brightman

      He is SO darn pretty!!

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      If it makes you feel any better, his hair is awfully tall.

    • PrunellaV

      “Coffee cups.” Is there no end to testicle euphemisms? 😛

    • formerlyAnon

      Now that is a well-dressed man.

      That coat is an object lesson in why it is good to have money for nice clothes.

    • kathrineb

      Gorgeous and well dressed. The last pic with the glasses…

    • Krysta

      That man can get some HEIGHT on his goddamn hair.  Also, great coat.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

       A millenial Rock Hudson. We are very, very lucky.

      • TRSTL

        Without all that pesky lying, beards and hiding.  Look how far we’ve come….. :)

    • TieDye64

      WOWWWWWW! Digging everything here so hard…right down to the shoes. Dayum.

    • editrixie

      Aw, look at him being so nice to his fans, and his handler looks like she’s griping, “Get the fuck on with it, we have to go.”

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      It’s really cold in New York, and he’s using layers to stay warm and look sleek as opposed to wearing a big giant coat (Denzel) and thereby hiding his hot bod. Thanks Matt, you look swell. 

    • MinAgain

      He does love his patterned shirts and brown shoes, doesn’t he?

    • DBSNYC

      he looks short

    • TRSTL

      He should always wear glasses.   Makes him even sexier.

    • unbornfawn

      Simply gorgeous. 

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties


    • ZnSD

      with a SPOON bitches! yummy.

    • Claudia Fernandes

      I’m not american and don’t live in USA…Sometimes don’t understand the whole post… This is the case: can you help me understand what means «le sigh»? Thank you so much…

      • Mink Carlyle

        LOL Not TLo, but as I just saw this comment: It basically means you’ve seen someone who makes you sigh with admiration and lust. Common internet fan speak to express that particular mix of emotions.

        • Claudia Fernandes

          Ooookkkk, thank you so much!! I was not expecting the answer by TLo, but from any of the kittens!! Thank you Mink

    • barbarienne

      He’s gorgeous, I can’t deny that, but in a kind of ordinary way, if that makes sense? I prefer something a bit more interesting looking. Maybe if he would scruff up a bit.

    • Chelsea

      good lord. 

    • Alex McGeagh

      I am so very in love with those glasses. A modern day gay Clark Kent. 😛 

    • RzYoung

      Love those glasses, the hair’s a little ‘there’s something about Mary’ though isn’t it? 

    • DebbieLovesShoes

      That coat is making me crazy.  Omagosh.  

    • DesertDweller79

      Me:  Oh, he looks so great. I love him.
      scroll down
      Me: He’s taking a photo with a fan.  I LOVE him!
      scroll down
      Me: Oh my God, he even has adorable glasses!  Damn, I LOVE HIM!!
