Canadian-born stage and film actor Victor Garber, known for his roles in "Argo" and "Titanic," confirmed on Monday that he is gay.
The disclosure comes only days after acclaimed actress Jodie Foster announced that she was gay during Sunday night's Golden Globes award ceremony while accepting a lifetime achievement award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
In an interview with Hollywood blogger Greg Hernandez
, Garber said his announcement shouldn't come as a surprise, considering he's been living openly with his partner, artist Rainer Andreesen, in their Greenwich Village in Manhattan for nearly 13 years.
"I don’t really talk about it but everybody knows," said Garber, adding that Andreesen will be "going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards." The Screen Actors Guild Awards, in which actors voted on one another's performances, will be held on Jan. 27.
Garber and Foster are the latest in a series of Hollywood celebrities who have opened up about being gay in 2012.
In July, CNN's Anderson Cooper came out to fellow journalist Andrew Sullivan, who is gay himself.
"The fact is, I'm gay," emailed Cooper, putting an end to years of speculation over his sexual orientation.
"I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something - something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed or even afraid. This is distressing because it is simply not true," wrote Cooper. "The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud."
Other well-known celebrities who came out of the closet in 2012 include actress Gillian Anderson, known for her role as Agent Scully on the hit TV series "The X-Files," actor Matt Bomer, known for his performances on the USA Network, and ABC News meteorologist Sam Champion.
