In a big coming out week for Hollywood, Victor Garber confirmed that he is gay in an interview with GregInHollywood.
After learning that the actor’s Wikipedia page says “He lives in New York with his companion of 13 years, Rainer Andreesen,” Greg wanted to confirm the information:
So I got up, walked into the lobby of the Langham Huntington Hotel and found Garber. I just decided to ask him: “Wikipedia lists Rainer Andreesen as your partner. I wondered if that’s something that’s public, that you’ve confirmed.”
He seemed surprised by the question but said: ‘I don’t really talk about it but everybody knows.”
Garber then added: “He’s going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards.”
It should be noted the interview took place during the TV Critics Association Press Tour, a week prior to the Golden Globes. While just published yesterday, the interview was not prompted by Jodie Foster’s coming out speech.
Garber currently stars in the Oscar-nominated film, Argo, and the new NBC series, Deception.
