"Watch What Happens Live" shared a tender moment between friends Matt Bomer and Andrew Rannells


Matt Bomer and Andrew Rannells were guests on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live, and the actors closed a question and answer game called "Uncomfortably Close" with a smooch. The moment was posted on Youtube on the 14th of June 2018 and has accrued over 70.000 views in 24 hours.

The two are currently starring in the Broadway hit The Boys in the Band, which features a cast of all gay actors such as Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Robin DeJesus, Tuc Watkins, Michael B. Washington and Brian Hutchison.

The play premiered in 1968, was a groundbreaking first in portraying the difficulties and lifestyles of gay men.

Bomer, 40, and Rannells, 39, spoke about the show, then participated in a game where they asked and answered questions, progressively moving closer and closer.


The questions were “What’s your favorite musical?”,“What’d you eat for breakfast?”, and the last was “When was the last time you brushed your teeth?”, to which Bomer answered: “More recently than you.”

The game ended with the two friends locking lips in a kiss.


The two men spoke about what has changed in the gay community in the last 50 years - and what hasn't. Though legislation has come a long way towards giving homosexuals equality in terms of marriage and adoption, Randalls said, a backlash of discriminatory thinking has exploded across American society.


The Boys in the Band is currently playing a 15-week limited engagement at New York City’s Booth Theatre to celebrate the ground-breaking play's 50 year anniversary.

The play has received critical acclaim for its frank revelation of what it meant to be gay in the conservative 50s and ’60s when gay men were discriminated against, ostracized, and even seen as mentally ill.
