So – last week we found out Wentworth Miller has taken a brave and admirable step by coming out! While the information has been surprising for many, a celebrity coming out is always big news. And Hollywood has had many celebs coming out over the past few years. Zachary Quinto The star who played Spock in 2009’s Star Trek movie and was Sylar on TV’s Heroes came out in a profile in New York magazine in 2011. Jim Parsons While he’s been in a relationship for 10 years, The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons (39), better known as theoretical physicist Sheldon Cooper, only revealed he’s gay last year in an interview with the New York Times. Ricky Martin While rumours were rife for years, the Puerto Rican pop star only came out in 2010 after welcoming twins, Valentino and Matteo, in 2008 via a surrogate. "Before I decided to become a father, I already accepted who I was," he told talk-show host Oprah Winfrey. "Then, when I was I was holding my children, I said, 'Okay, it's time to tell the world’." Matt Bomer White Collar’s hunky star Matt Bomer came out in February last year at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards, as he accepted the New Generation Arts and Activism Award for his charity work in the fight against HIV/Aids. In his speech, the father of three thanked his partner and publicist, Simon Halls. "I'd really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry. Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment." Amber Heard In December 2010, Amber Heard stepped out for the first time with her partner Tasya van Ree at the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) 25th anniversary party. "I personally think that if you deny something or if you hide something, you're inadvertently admitting it’s wrong," she said. "I don't feel like I'm wrong." The gorgeous bisexual actress, who’s currently dating Johnny Depp, says, "I hate the idea of a label just as much as anyone else but I'm with who I'm with; I love who I love," she told AfterEllen.com at the event. "I think that the injustice of people staying in the closet is more than I can bear with a clear conscience." Sean Hayes Despite playing over-the-top Jack McFarland on Will & Grace from 1998 to 2006, Sean Hayes didn’t publicly acknowledge being gay until March 2010. In the April 2010 edition of American LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender)-interest magazine The Advocate, Sean said, "I never have had a problem saying who I am . . . I am who I am. I was never in, as they say. Never."
