Ben Whishaw confirms his sexuality as he is celebrating his first wedding anniversary. The 32-year-old British actor who plays the genius Q in the latest James Bond movie “Skyfall” is confirmed to have married composer Mark Bradshaw in a secret civil ceremony last August in Sydney.
“Ben has never hidden his sexuality, but like many actors he prefers not to discuss his family or life outside of his work,” his rep says. “Due to speculation, I can confirm that Ben and Mark entered into a civil partnership in August 2012. They were proud to do so and are very happy.”
The couple met on the set of Jane Campion’s 2009 film “Bright Star” about John Keats’ romantic relationship with Fanny Brawne before the famed poet’s untimely death in February 1821. Whishaw played Keats opposite Abbie Cornish, while Bradshaw composed the score.
