Murray Bartlett is an Australian actor who has had roles in shows such as Sex and the city, the white lotus, welcome To Chippendalesand The last of us. Bartlett recently won an Emmy in the Outstanding Supporting Role for playing a hotel manager named Armond in the HBO anthology comedy series White Lotus.
One thing that is common in Bartlett’s roles is that the actor has portrayed a gay person on more than a few occasions. With Murray playing a few or two gay roles, many have also wondered if he’s actually a non-binary celebrity. After all, he has often written history when it comes to gay sex. Bartlett is indeed gay and has always been open about his sexuality. However, the 51-year-old actor is very discreet when it comes to his relationship and you could say that he has managed to successfully keep that part of his life out of the media spotlight. Murray nevertheless has a boyfriend, at least that’s what has been reported by various media stories.
While media reports claim that Murray has a boyfriend, the question remains: Who won Bartlett’s heart? The answer remains a mystery, with much speculation about the identity of this secret partner. Have they stepped forward into the light, or will this love remain a secret affair? Read what the headings below have to say about these tantalizing questions.
Murray Bartlett is not married to his wife, but rather has a boyfriend
As mentioned Murray is not married but is in a same sex relationship with his boyfriend and his name is apparently Matt. However, nothing else is known about this mysterious partner of Bartlett.
However, what is known is that Murray’s partner, Matt, is not in the same industry as the Sydney-born actor.
It is unclear whether the couple is married or not, or how long they have been together. They have also not appeared in public as a couple to date. Many people didn’t even know his partner’s name was Matt or if he was even dating before his Emmy acceptance speech in September 2022. It’s also unknown who exactly Matt is and what he does.
Murray, whoever, has revealed that he and his friend in Cape Cod, Massachusetts live in Provincetown, a small town on the coast of Massachusetts. Bartlett moved in with his partner Matt during the 2020 global pandemic. Before that, the Neighbors actor had been living in Brooklyn for 17 years. The couple moved because they wanted to live next to nature and build a community with their chosen family. The two have yet to have children, but the partners share a border collie named Bo.
Moving in with his partner turned out to be luck for Murray Bartlett
Bartlett revealed in an interview that the move he made with his boyfriend (moving to Massachusetts) turned out to be a stroke of luck and said he should have done it sooner. As such, it was in Matt’s garage that he auditioned for The White Lotus, the series that would win him an Emmy.
Speaking of which, while accepting the Emmy in September 2022, Murray thanked his partner, Matt calling him his “refuge.”
Earlier in January 2023, Bartlett, a graduate of John Curtin College, revealed in an interview with Mr Porter that it was his partner, Matt, who had the foresight of his Emmy success. Murray reported that before persuading him to move to Massachusetts, his friend told him that he felt “something big is about to happen and I don’t want us living in the city”.
Bartlett Past Relationships; Has he ever had a wife?
Murray’s sexuality has been somewhat public knowledge for several years. As with his current personal affairs, the 51-year-old actor has rarely spoken about his sexuality and his history. It is therefore unclear whether Murray was ever involved in any heterosexual loyalties, marital or otherwise. It is also subsequently unknown whether he ever had a wife or not. However, he has had a few male ex-partners in the past.
As such, White Lotus isn’t HBO’s first show in which Murray landed the role while living with his partner. The five-foot-eleven-inch-tall actor also landed the role of the Dom in Looking while living with his then-Egyptian partner in Cairo. Like White Lotus, Murray taped himself from Cairo for Looking and eventually secured the role in HBO’s 2014 comedy series.
Murray Bartlett says he and his friend have different temperaments
In an interview with Mr. Porter in January 2023, Bartlett said so he and his partner Matt had opposite temperaments. The Guiding Light actor said that unlike his friend, he is a very emotional person.
Bartlett went on to explain that he sometimes finds it intriguing and frustrating that his partner “doesn’t dive into the snake pit with him.”
“One of the things I’ve found intriguing and a little frustrating at times is that he doesn’t dive into the snake pit with me. At first I thought, ‘Come on! Come on in!’ And it was a little disorienting for me.
said the 1987-born actor.
However, Bartlett said he considers the differences a blessing. The White Lotus actor stated that his tornado of emotions and his partner’s mountainous composure balance things out.
“I could go through this tornado of emotions and then there’s a mountain next to me and it’s like WHOOSH.”
