Matt McGorry is well known as the winner of 2015's Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. His performance as Asher Millstone in How To Get Away With Murder was loved by fans as well as critics.
The lead actor in How He Fell In Love does not make many headlines for his love life in real life. Is he in a secret relationship with anyone? Let's find out!
Matt McGorry's Personal life And Relationships
Matt McGorry despite having a great personality isn't in a relationship. It is unusual to see a person with such posture and personality not dating anyone.
Matt defines himself as a feminist and a guy who lacks the skill to talk with girls. In an interview with Salon, he states,
"I never particularly thought of myself as great with girls. I can be awkward and I have a strange sense of humor at times. But I’ve also been learning to try and embrace that. Dating is sort of like auditioning."
The actor is a supporter of the gay community and he explained how he was raised between a group of gay friends in Chelsea.
How He Fell in Love may have been his successful movie, but McGorry, in reality, is a single person who is yet to fall for someone.
Matt is certainly not someone who you associate love at first sight with. In fact, he takes time to fall for a lady as he strives to be friends first and only after knowing the person inside out, he gets attracted. In a 2016 interview, the actor said:
"I don’t easily fall in love. With my friends, I prioritize a strong connection over a lot of connections with different people.I’m the same way with love. It’s hard for me to find something that excites me, but when I do, I’m all in."
Matt is also a supporter of the gay community and doesn't hesitate to support them through social media. Some sources say that he was seen together with Actress Dascha Polanco but their dating endeavors weren't confirmed while other sources say he is busy enough to not be involved in any relationship.
Some sources claim he might be gay while other sources say that he's not in a relationship because of his busy schedule. His support for the gay community can be seen in his tweet below.
Hey bruh. It's ok. Liking a woman's finger in ur butt doesn't make u gay. And even if u were gay, that's ok too. Everything gonna be ok.— Matt McGorry (@MattMcGorry) January 29, 2016
Not even gay if u put UR finger up ur butt. Even doe it's a man's finger. No "gayer" than giving a handjob to urself (aka masturbation)— Matt McGorry (@MattMcGorry) January 29, 2016
Whether he is a different gender or not Matt's support for the gay community shows that he has a personality that every female fan would love to be his partner.
Matt McGorry's Career
McGorry started acting at the age of nine in his school events. He made his professional onscreen debut in 2006 as Grey Malcolm on Thursday. He also appeared as Gorn in Gizor and Gorm. He also performed in 2010's Afghan Hound.
Matt used to work at a gym and used to work as a fitness trainee for some of Victoria's Secret models. He is the winner of 2010's bodybuilding competition. When asked about his acting and bodybuilding life the actor replied:
"When I did bodybuilding, I had five-and-a-half percent body fat, and was exhausted all the time, "In the acting world, what I have to maintain is not much."
#TBT to the one and only bodybuilding show I ever did (and won) 5 years ago. After a few years of competing in powerlifting I decided to do a bodybuilding competition to see how far I could push my body and how much I could test my will. For those who don't know, powerlifting is about how much weight you can lift and bodybuilding is judged based on the way you look. To date, the bodybuilding show was the hardest thing I've ever done. After 4 months of working out 10-15 hours a week, cooking and weighing all of my food and carrying it with me in containers everywhere, I lost 40lbs and got down to 5.5% bodyfat by the time I stepped on to the stage. I did this whole prep through Thanksgiving, New Years, and Christmas, and never had a single drop of alcohol or bite of food that wasn't on my plan. It was definitely the best shape I've ever been in, but also the most miserable I've ever been. I was perpetually tired, hungry and cranky. I was antisocial and felt unbelievably isolated from the rest of the world. 2 weeks later, I did my final powerlifting competition and deadlifted 501lbs while weighing 165lbs. I'm happy that I had the experience of testing myself but am so much happy to trade a balanced life, eating and workout schedule for less abs. That is, until I get a call for an acting project that warrants it. Minus the tanning of course. And the posing trunks. ;)
In 2015, McGorry appeared in different movies including Ratter, Love, Loserville, Say My Name. His role as Travis in 2015's How He Fell in Love (2015) alongside Amy Hargreaves, Mark Blum is loved by the audience.
