Belated congratulations are in order for Matt Bomer.

The former White Collar star reveals in the May issue of Details that he and longtime partner Simon Halls privately wed back in 2011.

Bomer, who quietly came out in 2012, and Halls, a Hollywood publicist, have three sons together, an 8-year-old and a pair of 6-year-old twins. 

The 36-year-old's upcoming role as dying AIDS patient Felix Turner in The Normal Heart, HBO's movie adaptation of gay-rights activist Larry Kramer's critically acclaimed 1985 play, is one close to the actor. In high school, he says, "I was in romantic relationships with girls … At the time, I was clueless and obviously in a different place in relation to my sexuality." But, he adds, reading the play in 1992 "completely rocked my world."

For Bomer, who lost more than 35 lbs. for the movie, it's the role of his life. "I wouldn't have a lot of the rights I have today if it wasn't for people like Larry … It's rare that you get to be a part of something that, hopefully, has some significance socially or historically," he says. "And then to have a role that changes you? I think that's the best you could hope for in this profession."
