Lee Pace has been called one of the most versatile Hollywood actors. But what about his relationship with Matthew Foley? Who is Lee Pace's partner?


Lee Pace has starred in some of the best films in Hollywood, and include "The Hobbit" trilogy, "Guardians of the Galaxy," and the critically acclaimed series "Pushing Daisies," which earned him Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.

With such an impressive and successful acting career, is Lee Pace also winning in his personal life? The "Foundation" actor is in a long-term relationship with Matthew Foley; here's what we know about Lee Pace's partner.



Matthew Foley has an impressive professional resume. He works in the fashion industry for the most well-known international brand, Thom Browne.

He was appointed the Global Director of Communications for the brand in 2019. Before getting this top position, Foley joined the company in 2011 as an Account Executive.

After a short while in this role, Foley became the Marketing and Communications Manager, after which he assumed the role of Brand Director in charge of the company's content strategy and social media. Foley has been in his role as Vice President of Communications for over three years.


Before starting his career, Foley attended The Heights School and studied at Trinity College-Hartford. He furthered his studies at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation. In addition, he has worked as a Production Assistant at KCD and a Visual Merchandiser at Prada.

Foley described himself as the VP at Thom Browne on his Instagram page, and his account is filled with exciting posts of him working hard and playing hard.



Pace and Foley have reportedly been together since 2018. Speculation that the pair were married started after Pace attended the Met Gala in 2021. The media spotted Pace with a ring on his wedding finger at the prestigious event.

Instead of focusing on how dapper the hunk looked in the suit-shorts, he wore for the event, the gold ring he sported on his left hand ended up being the only thing most people noticed about the star's photos posted on Instagram.


People have been curious about most things in Pace's life, especially his romantic relationships. The "Soldier's Girl" actor is known to keep details of his marriage close to his chest. The Cut once asked him about the gold ring he wears on his left hand, and the "Foundation" star reacted by saying:

"What? No! How did that get there? Gus, do you know anything about that?"

In an interview with GQ released on August 17, 2022, Pace confirmed that he was married. His husband is his longtime partner Foley whom he started dating after meeting through their mutual friend Nick.


"The Party's Just Beginning" actor revealed that he was glad their relationship worked out. While talking about his marriage, Pace said how people had described marriage to him as perfect.

He was experiencing what they meant when they said marriage was like a sleepover with your weirdest friend forever. He stated that he and Foley were perfect for each other.


Pace revealed that he held on to Foley because he was the one person he could be weird around. Also, he would want their family to grow shortly. The actor said:

"I'd love to have kids. I think there's nothing better than little kids running around."

The actor is known to be very private — some might say even secretive — about his personal life. The "Halt and Catch Fire" actor seems to enjoy having mystery surrounding his private life.

In an interview with Buzzfeed in May 2014, Pace said he doesn't see the need to share details about his personal life with everyone. He expressed:


"Who cares about people's personal lives? I mean, honestly. Trust me, if I had something interesting to say about myself, I would."


When talking about his personal life and sexuality in 2018, he said to W Magazine:

"I've dated men. I've dated women. I don't know why anyone would care. I'm an actor and I play roles. To be honest, I don't know what to say — I find your question intrusive."

Pace has acted in a few gay classic plays, including "The Normal Heart," and once revealed that he felt gay actors should play gay roles but had never labeled himself.
