Known for his roles in Titanic, Alias and Argo, actor Victor Garber recently confirmed in an interview that he is gay and dating artist Rainer Andreesen. The interview was with Greg In Hollywood, whom Tyrell and I met and were side-by-side with at the 2011 GLAAD Awards Red Carpet. Such a nice guy!
Greg recently got to have a one-on-one interview with Garber at the TV Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena. Before the interview, Greg quickly looked at his Wikipedia page and learned that Garber “lives in New York with his companion of 13 years, Rainer Andreesen.’ He then found all kinds of photos of the handsome Hollywood couple together. This made Greg wonder if Garber had already come out publicly and had just missed it.
Greg then just came out and asked the Canadian actor: “Wikipedia lists Rainer Andreesen as your partner. I wondered if that’s something that’s public, that you’ve confirmed.” Caught off guard by the question, Garber responded, “I don’t really talk about it but everybody knows.” He then added, “He’s going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards.” You can read the full interview/article on Greg In Hollywood, where they also discuss his role in Argo and his new NBC show, Deception. Given that Garber was at the Golden Globes as well, I am reminded of Jody Foster’s amazing speech and encourage you to watch it below if you haven’t yet.
