Actor Ben Whishaw Officially Comes Out--Reveals Secret Marriage!

Actor Ben Whishaw, who you may know as "Q" from the James Bond films and other indie fare like Bright Star and Perfume, has confirmed that not only is he gay, but he married his partner last year!

Way to keep a secret!

Whishaw technically entered a civil partnership with composer Mark Brashaw in August of 2012 in Sydney, Australia. 

The two met while working on the same film. 

Ben's representative says, "Ben has never hidden his sexuality, but like many actors he prefers not to discuss his family or life outside of his work. Due to speculation, I can confirm that Ben and Mark entered into a civil partnership in August 2012. They were proud to do so and are very happy."

Belated congrats to the happy couple!

Good for you Mr. Whishaw!  Good for you. I am thrilled to see you out, proud, and happy. 

Now, as a fan of his, I must confess that the shock from this announcement is not that Ben Whishaw is gay, but that he officially confirmed it. :)

Congrats to the happy (and very cute) couple!  

Looks so good together and lovely!!!!

Congrats to both of you guys. My wish for you is many fun filled years ahead of you to come. ENJOY!!!

Congrats! You two look like an amazing couple.

Congrats to you both

Congrats to you both.
