Matt Bomer and Greg: Then and now!
White Collar star Matt Bomer, who made news this week when he publicly acknowledged his male partner at an awards gala, was already a hunk in progress in high school.
The black and white photo below of the handsome star, as a sophomore in high school, has been making the rounds this week and he is just cute as can be.
He would have been a real distraction had he been at my high school – you know, if we were around the same age!
Thought it would be fun to share with you all a photo of ME during my sophomore year in high school!
I had not seen that photo in decades but at a recent birthday party for one of the girls who is also in it, it was on display in a collage so I snapped a photo of it and now I have it too.
God, I miss my hair.
I was firmly in the closet in high school and was coping by going into high achiever mode.
By the time this photo was taken, I had taken over as editor of the high school yearbook at 15 and kept the job through my senior year. Also worked on the school newspaper, played on the tennis team and was in student government.
Looking back, I’m so lucky to have managed to have a great time despite my painful secret.
I have a lot of admiration for kids who come out so young today – they are so brave and so beautiful and deserve our absolute love and support.
Anyway, didn’t mean for this post to get so deeply personal. It began as a pic of Mr. Bomer way back when then led to all the rest.
Hope you enjoy!
