    Matt Bomer has a cousin who is a plastic surgeon with the same last name who actually claims of Dutch ancestry. She also showed me a picture of Matt Bomer with his signature that reads “To my dear cousin…”.
    Dr. Kelly Bomer currently resides in Scottsdale AZ. Google Dr. Kelly Bomer MD and you will find her!
    Mostly of English ancestry? I think not. Bomer is a Dutch/German name… and that is fact!

    He’s just perfect, there’s nothing about his physical which can be criticized.

    • Pasqal says:

      His not perfect, in fact no one is.. Matt’s hips are too wide to be perfect. Just saying:)

    • me says:

      No, he has one eye smaller than the other, big forehead, feminine lips, he is short, he has too much hair under his arms, he has fine shoulders and a weird ass , and other things…

      • beyfox says:

        I couldn’t agree more, he’s not perfect and not beautiful

        • rickyflo says:

          Ok, Everyone just cool it. Hips?? Really, there are no perfect hips except what is needed in humanity and hips for you may be different in opinion for the majority of others. Also, eyes are all physically as one is smaller than the other to vision correctly, and this is in a science book. That is something scientific and proven way more longer than your opinion and beliefs. Short for 5’11 and a half? you all are fucking insane because most of our ancestors are definitely not that in the past and I am 5’9 and I am not that short. Also,classified short by statistics is 5’5 and this is measured every few years by the average of the population. Next, most men have some hair, and this is a norm. People with shaving their private areas, chest and legs and doing it excessively to fit in are not noooooormmaallll. A piercing and tats are more noooormal than thatttttt, and some people that dont shave except face and women to settle as women shaving areee noooormmallll. Also, there are different noses, eyes, lips, so onnnn by race and genes. Now, preference for a girl, guy to girls whichever group are necessary to that, but be strangers, friends and family, nahh! You all are retarded if you do that to family, strangers and friends every minute of a day. In this case, scientifically he is beautiful in his own way and beyond your opinions.

        You think nearly six feet tall is SHORT? For an American, he is above average. Even in the Netherlands, the country with the tallest average male height, he would not be considered short; he is above average in most European countries as well (including England, and he is mostly English).

        But of course, no one is perfect. I just thought that calling him short was ridiculous when he’s clearly above average in his own country and probably yours as well. Nonetheless, many people still find him to be very attractive. To each their own.
