Happy Birthday to Jim Verraros!
The star of the first two Eating Out comedies and a top 10 finalist in the first season of American Idol, the multi-talented Jim Verraros turns 27 today.
Jim has found great happiness in his personal life as he and Bill Brennan tied the knot in Chicago in a big, splashy ceremony in Chicago in September.
They were two-and-half years into their relationship when Bill, president of Bridal Expo Chicago, pulled a white gold ring with eight diamonds out of his pocket.
“Being a gay male in this day and age you don’t really think about marriage,” Jim admitted in an interview with Greg In Hollywood. “He’s in the business and he really wanted to have a wedding,. Everything changed for me when I met.”
“People say, ‘Why are you even doing it if it’s not even legal?’ We don’t have to wait for the government to tell us it’s okay, we’re doing it anyway. It’s more about our family and friends and people we care about witnessing something that is true and beautiful. It’s important for us to see our family to see something that is very traditional. Hopefully we will begin to create a movement. You can still have a wedding and no one has to tell you you cant do it.”
Jim the groom is a bit more buff than Jim the Idol contestant. He has added 20 pounds of muscle to his frame through intensive workouts.
“You get to a point in your life when you are ready for a change and you get to it,” he said. “I changed my diet and threw myself in the gym to see how far I could take my body, I got tired of being that geeky dork from the Eating Out movies.”
