Victor Garber Reveals He's Gay and Dating Artist Rainer Andreesen



Victor Garber and Rainer Andreesen attend The American Fertility Association's Illuminations NYC 2012 on December 3, 2012 in New York City.

While Jodie Foster made her sexual orientation a public spectacle at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills Jan. 13, Titanic actor Victor Garber quietly confirmed that he's gay in an interview with Greg in Hollywood blogger Greg Hernandez.

Garber -- best known for his roles in the movies Argo, Legally Blonde, Milk, The First Wives Club and Sleepless in Seattle -- addressed his homosexuality during the TV Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena, Calif. in early January.

Hernandez asked Garber about a Wikipedia entry that claimed he lives in New York City with artist and model Rainer Andreesen. "I don't really talk about it but everybody knows," the 63-year-old actor said of his relationship with Andreesen, a fellow Canadian. "He's going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards."

Garber -- who has been nominated for six Emmy Awards since entering show business -- first spoke about his longtime love in an April 2012 interview with Canada's Forever Young.

"My companion Rainer Andreesen and I have been together almost 13 years in Greenwich Village," he said. "We both love New York."

In addition to his film career, Garber has also appeared on the small screen in Alias, 30 Rock, Frasier, Ugly Betty, Web Therapy, The Big C, Damages, Deception, Eli Stone, Nurse Jackie and Glee.

I'm so baffled. Wasn't Victor out wayyyy back when Alias was filming? That was over a decade ago. Or is this all about "coming out" in the media even though it's still something that's already known? I'm so confused.

Anyway, I love me some Victor Garber. He kicked major @ss as "Spy Daddy" on Alias.

I didn't know he was gay. Glad for him that he doesn't have to be closeted.
I don't think it's fair of the person who wrote the article above saying Jody Foster made a public spectacle out of her coming out. She's a huge star and speculation about her, accusations of her being closeted, etc go back many years. So she finally made a public acknowledgement of what everybody knows.

I agree. I thought Jodie Foster made a very thoughtful, touching speech. Of course it's been widespread knowledge for years that she is gay.

It's also been widespread knowledge that she is fiercely protective of her privacy. She made that quite clear in her speech, and refused to come out and state that she is gay, although she did come out and say it in many ways.

She seemed to ramble, but I think that was totally intentional - she is an extremely intelligent, educated, well-spoken woman. I thought that comparing her life to a reality show was quite well done - she's been in the public eye since she was 3 years old in the Coppertone ads - no wonder privacy is so important to her!
