Matt Bomer seems to be enjoying his bestowed fatherhood and it is not just the joys of it that he loves but he has also readily taken up all the difficulties and challenges too. Speaking to PEOPLE at the premiere of HBO's The Normal Heart in Los Angeles on Monday, the actor said "I love it. It's the most profound gift and the most daunting challenge at times."
The 36 year old Bomer has three sons with husband Simon Halls. The eldest of them is going to turn 9 this week and the other two are 6 year old twins. The actor completely realizes what parenthood brings and he says he was all ready for the challenges when they came. It is a huge responsibility and has to be a balancing act.
"I just want to be hopefully somebody who helps shape these souls without changing how they came into the world. To just give them the structure they need to thrive in the world but at the same time let their own personalities shine through. Some days that's easier than others."
Matt Bomer is best known for his roles in USA drama White Collar and in films like Magic Mike and his starring in The Normal Heart is already gaining some hype. He plays the role of Felix Turner in the story based on Larry Kramer's Tony-winning play about the AIDS crisis. For this role he had to lose more than 35 lbs. Though he would love his children to watch this movie sometime in the future, he realizes that they are too young for it right now.
"They're really young. So, not anytime soon," he says. "It's definitely a film I want them to see at a different point for a lot of reasons. This project is bigger than me. It's something I want to show them to understand a piece of my history. And who they owe a lot of thanks to. I hope people see this movie and respond the way I did when I was a teenager, with a sense of gratitude for this generation who stood up when it wasn't popular and it wasn't easy to do so … They are the reason I'm able to get married today, and probably the reason I can walk down the red carpet with my husband."
