It's just not good publicity.

They can try and hold their heads high, but would they bother with the headache?

And like I've explained, Bomer's career as a leading man in film has been affected by his sexuality. Hate to say it.
He's good looking, talented. Yet so many other actors who are less attractive and less talented get leading roles in films. I refuse to believe it's due to bad luck in auditions.

Perhaps I'm wrong, probably am. But we know Hollywood still has an issue with these things, no matter how far we've come in the years.
And what career was that, precisely? He's never been a leading man in film, even before he came out. He's a TV leading man, but in film, he's supporting. There's nothing wrong with that.

1989 - "That Batman movie was pretty good. I wish we had more comic movies..."
2015 - "Aunt May is too young, Aquaman isn't blonde, Apocalypse looks purple, and ALL THESE ACTORS ARE TOO SHORT! HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO MEEEEE?!?"
