Actor Matt Bomer has finally come out of the closet, according to reports online.

The 'White Collar' leading actor thanked his longtime partner during an acceptance speech at Saturday's Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards.

"I'd really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Hendry," he said, as he accepted the New Generation Arts and Activism Award. "Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment."

Bomer has kept private his love life, although his sexuality has been internet fodder since the first episode of 'White Collar.'
