Bradley Cooper and Matt Bomer kissed on the set of their upcoming film, and we have two words: Thank you!
Bradley Cooper’s next directing gig has him exploring the streets of New York City and kissing Magic Mike actor Matt Bomer. Yeah, we’re a little jealous.
Cooper’s biopic, Maestro, follows the life of Leonard Bernstein, a well-known composer (West Side Story) and civil rights activist. The movie will also focus on the complex relationship between Bernstein and his wife, Felicia. The two met in 1946 at a party and were married for 25 years. Cooper is playing Leonard, and Carey Mulligan is playing Felicia. So, where does Bomer come in?
While we don’t know who the 44-year-old actor will play in the film, these photos from the movie set suggest that Bomer is Bernstein’s gay love interest. And because one picture isn’t enough, here are a couple of photos of the two actors locking lips!

Despite his long-term relationship with his wife, friends described Bernstein as a “gay man who got married. He wasn’t conflicted about it at all. He was just gay.”
Maestro is Cooper’s second directing gig after A Star is Born. Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Kristie Macosko Krieger, Fred Berner, and Amy Durning will executive produce. Sarah Silverman, Jeremy Strong, and Maya Hawke will also star.
Maestro will premiere on Netflix in 2023.
