Your Boyfriend Lee Pace Confirms He’s A Married Man
He and his husband Matthew Foley are considering starting a family, too.
It’s official: Lee Pace is off the market. The actor confirmed that he and his long-time partner, Thom Browne exec Matthew Foley, are very much married.
In an interview with GQ Hype, the Bodies Bodies Bodies actor shared that they first met through a mutual friend. “I said to my friend, Nick, ‘You know a lot of people, who do you have for me?’” Pace recalled.
“And it luckily has worked out. What I’ll say about being married, it was once described to me as an endless sleepover with your weirdest friend. In our experience, that is absolutely true.”
And he offered some great love advice. “If you’ve found one person you can be weird around, hold on tight.”
As for the future, Pace says that starting a family might be on the horizon. “I‘d love to have kids,” said Pace. “I think there’s nothing better than little kids running around.”
While the couple has been very private, the two have reportedly been dating since at least 2017 and have been living together in a 200-year-old farmhouse in upstate New York with their dog, Gus. And Pace shared photos of their camping trip in 2021 that were so sweet (and hot).
Rumors that the two were married have been circulating since November 2021 following an interview with The Cut, where the writer spotted a suspicious gold band on the actor’s finger. When asked about it, Pace played coy. “What? No! How did that get there? Gus, do you know anything about that?” he said of the ring, playfully blaming his dog, who was present for the interview as well.
Whenever or however Lee and Foley married, we celebrate their queer love and are glad to have them in our community. One that Pace, though a famously private person, is proud to be a member of. “As a member of the queer community, I understand the importance of living openly, being counted, and happily owning who I am,” he told W Magazine in 2008.
