Just days after Jodie Foster confirmed that she is gay during her Golden Globes speech, actor Victor Garber came out during an interview while promoting NBC’s Deception.
While Greg In Hollywood was listening to the TV Critics Association press tour panel on the new NBC show, he looked up Garber’s Wikipedia page, which mentions that he has been living with partner Rainer Andreesen for 13 years. “Did he come out publicly and I missed it?” Greg wondered.
The writer first asked Garber about an appearance on Smash, which Wikipedia also claimed he was doing. “Wikipedia is bullshit,” Garber replied.
Later, Greg asked, “Wikipedia lists Rainer Andreesen as your partner. I wondered if that’s something that’s public, that you’ve confirmed.”
“I don’t really talk about it but everybody knows,” the actor replied. He then added, “He’s going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards.”
Zap2It notes that this isn’t the first time Garber mentioned Andreesen. Last year, he told Forever Young News that he is most proud of “My relationships with my family and my friends. My companion Rainer Andreesen and I have been together almost 13 years in Greenwich Village. We both love New York.”
Garber appears in Ben Affleck’s Argo and stars in Damages, which airs on Mondays.
