‘Skyfall’ actor is gay and married

skyfall_clipmeetquartermaster_hdI have to confess I love James Bond. It often feels odd for me to be such a huge fan of such a somewhat misogynistic character who at once mistrusts women, yet always seems to get one in the end.

I must also confess that I thought the new Q for the latest film Skyfall was the cutest one ever (not to mention youngest!). I just loved listening to him speak and know that he was such a brilliant geek. Imagine my utter delight to find out that he’s not only gay but married! Ben and Mark have been married for a year now, apparently and I wish them many many years of happiness!

“Skyfall” actor Ben Whishaw has officially come out as gay.

In a statement obtained by the Daily Mail over the weekend, Whishaw’s rep confirmed the actor is gay and has been married to his partner, Australian composer Mark Bradshaw, for a year now.

“Ben has never hidden his sexuality, but like many actors he prefers not to discuss his family or life outside of his work,” his spokesman said Friday night. “Due to speculation, I can confirm that Ben and Mark entered into a civil partnership in August 2012. They were proud to do so and are very happy.”
