Actor Victor Garber, who played Jack Bristow on Alias and the shipbuilder Thomas Andrews in Titanic, confirmed this week what he thought people already knew.
Yes, he is gay.
The actor, who has been nominated for six Emmy Awards, including three for Alias, has hardly kept it a secret.
In an interview last year with a magazine in his native Canada, Garber said: “My companion Rainer Andreesen and I have been together almost 13 years in Greenwich Village. We both love New York.”
Andreesen, an artist and model, accompanied Garber to this year’s Golden Globe Awards.
“It’s such a gratification … to see him emerge now as one of the great directors,” Garber says. “And the fact that people love the movie so much means the world.”
