Actor Victor Garber, who played Jack Bristow on Alias and the shipbuilder Thomas Andrews in Titanic, confirmed this week what he thought people already knew.

Yes, he is gay.

"I don't really talk about it, but everybody knows," Garber, 63, told Greg Hernandez of the blog Greg in Hollywood, and was later confirmed by E!.

The actor, who has been nominated for six Emmy Awards, including three for Alias, has hardly kept it a secret.

In an interview last year with a magazine in his native Canada, Garber said: "My companion Rainer Andreesen and I have been together almost 13 years in Greenwich Village. We both love New York."

Andreesen, an artist and model, accompanied Garber to this year's Golden Globe Awards.

Garber also appears in Ben Affleck's Argo, and spoke to Hernandez about the joy of his connection to Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner, who costarred on Alias.

"It's such a gratification ... to see him emerge now as one of the great directors," Garber says. "And the fact that people love the movie so much means the world."
