“We are bonded for life, for sure, as friends after having gone through this together. So it’s a very sacred friendship for me. I love Jonathan,” the ‘Magic Mike’ actor told People.

One of their steamy scenes in the series shows Bailey sucking on Bomer’s toe, which is on another level of intimacy… When asked if he would return the gesture to his good friend Bailey, Bomer responded:

“That wasn’t in the script! We did what was in the script.”

Meanwhile, the ‘Bridgerton’ star previously shared about his experience starring alongside Bomer, whom he described was “a total joy” to work with. 

“We both had quite a lot of experience in our careers of intimacy and portraying intimacy, but there’s also just so much we’ve experienced as gay men, as well. So naturally, we had a lot to explore. To honor the canon of gay storytelling is totally what I set out to do,” he further expressed in a December 2023 interview with the outlet.
