The actor Matthew Foley and Lee Pace have been together for a long time. In a brand-new GQ profile, the actor from Bodies, Bodies, Bodies confirmed rumors regarding his marital status.
The couple was introduced a few years ago by a mutual friend, according to Pace: “I said to my friend, Nick, ‘You know a lot of people, who do you have for me?'” Fortunately, it turned out well.
He continued, “What I’ll say about marriage is that it was once compared to an endless sleepover with your weirdest friend. We have found that to be wholly accurate. Hold on tight if you’ve found just one person with whom you can be weird.
It appears that the couple is also considering starting a family. “I’d adore having children. Little kids running around, in my opinion, is the best,” he said.
Over the years, Pace’s public disclosure process has been challenging. His Hobbit co-star Ian McKellan unintentionally outed Pace in 2014 when he included his name on a list of all the gay cast members of the fantasy trilogy.
While portraying queer characters in Soldier’s Girl from 2003, Halt and Catch Fire from AMC, and The Normal Heart’s Broadway revival, Pace largely kept his sexuality a secret. Then, when asked directly about his sexuality in an interview with W Magazine in 2018 while he was performing in the Broadway revival of Angels in America, Pace appeared to be offended.
He revealed to reporter Bryan Moylan that he had dated both men and women. “I’m not sure why anyone would be concerned. I play roles as an actor. Sincerely, I’m at a loss for words because I find your inquiry intrusive.
Later, he responded to the quote in a tweet, making his first official public appearance.
In a recent phone interview, he said, “I was asked questions I wasn’t prepared for and found myself briefly at a loss for the right words.” “I value my privacy and I safeguard it. I remain professional when speaking with the media, focusing on my work. As a member of the queer community, I am aware of the value of being counted, living openly, and content with who I am.
In a New York Times profile published in 2018, he discussed coming out more candidly. The reality is that when you grow up queer, you become tough, he said. Moreover, perceptive And you develop your fielding skills. It’s not always a good thing when someone you don’t know approaches you and expresses interest in that aspect of your life. At least I was aware of that when I was younger.
He described how he felt under pressure to hide his identity in order to advance his career. “I recall working with a new agent for a year after I signed with them. In the middle of the afternoon, he took me to a coffee shop, and I could tell he wanted to talk. I heard you’re gay, is that true? he asked. “Is that a problem?” I questioned. He responded, “No, fine, just felt like I needed to know,” as is only natural. But after about a year, he stopped cooperating with me.
He alluded to a new relationship with an unnamed fashion executive in the same profile.
When Pace appeared at the Met Gala wearing what appeared to be a wedding band, fans started to wonder if he had wed last year. He played coy when The Cut enquired about it: “What? No! Where did that come from? Do you know anything about that, Gus [his dog]?
