While gay rumors circled around Victor Garber for years, it wasn’t until Monday that the actor confirmed that he is gay in an interview with Greg in Hollywood’s Greg Hernandez.

The "Titanic" actor discussed his sexual orientation in a much quieter way than say - Jodie Foster. Hernandez asked Garber, who was recently in the Golden Globe award-winning "Argo," about his Wikipedia entry, which says he lives in New York City with his partner -- artist and model Rainer Andreesen.

"I don’t really talk about it but everybody knows," he said of Andreesen. "He’s going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards."

This isn’t the first time Garber mentioned his relationship with Andreesen, however. In April 2012, the "Milk" actor told Canada’s Forever Young, "My companion Rainer Andreesen and I have been together almost 13 years in Greenwich Village. We both love New York."

Garber has appeared in several acclaimed films, including "Legally Blonde," "The First Wives Club," and "Sleepless in Seattle." He’s also had a number of television roles and has been on "Alias," "30 Rock," "Fraiser, "Ugly Betty, "The Big C," "Nurse Jackie," and "Glee." Although his Wiki article suggests he will be on the upcoming season of NBC’s "Smash," he told Hernandez, "Wikipedia is bullshit," and said he will not be on the program.
