His side hustles as a music talent include songwriting and producing records.

This son of two famous actors was born in Trenton, New Jersey, on the 14th of February 1990 and was raised in California until the age of five.

Why People Think Jake Weary Is Gay

People have been making guesses about Jake Weary’s sexuality for so many years now. While most are of the opinion that he is struggling with his sexual identity, others believe the actor is not straight. Rumors about him being gay began spreading across the internet and beyond after he featured in pro-LGBT projects like As The World Turn and Animal Kingdom.

The first Hollywood project the actor featured in as a gay character is the CBS series As The World Turn, in which he portrayed a young homosexual called Luke Snyder. Although Weary left the show just when viewers wanted to know how his character would explore the homosexuality plot-line, the actor received critical acclaim for his performance.

Weary also played the role of Deran Cody; a homosexual businessman who is very possessive of his boyfriend in Animal KingdomThis heightened people’s suspicion about him being attracted to people of his gender in real life. The actor hasn’t shown that he is bothered by the rumors in any way. He has continued to keep information about his personal life away from the curious public and media while focusing on his career.

The Truth About His Sexuality

Despite having some gay roles on his resume, it is safe to conclude that Jake Weary is not a homosexual in real life. He has not confirmed the rumors and there is no evidence to prove he’s attracted to men. Being very reserved and secretive, the actor hasn’t discussed his past relationships, which makes it pretty difficult to tell what his sexual preference is.

But then, playing gay roles doesn’t make one a homosexual in real life. There are a lot of straight actors who are good at playing such roles. So, the controversy surrounding Jake’s sexuality is not surprising, even though his decision to not comment on the matter has not been really helpful. If there is one thing we know, it is that the Animal Kingdom actor is unperturbed and very much devoted to his acting career than any other thing.

Is He Married?

Yes, Jake Weary is a married man. The Hollywood actor hotly sought-after in the industry tied the knot with his heartthrob in the month of October 2019, and they’ve been getting along well since then. He maintains a healthy relationship with Vera Bulder, the only woman he’s known to ever love.

Although neither Weary nor his wife has shared how and when they met, we gathered that the lovebirds began seeing each other back in early 2017. Their relationship became known to the public in July of the same year after the actor posted a picture of him and his sweetheart on Instagram. For now, the exact location and date of their marriage are still under the radar. Nevertheless, the marriage has gone a long way in putting to rest the speculations about Jake’s sexuality.

What We Know About His Wife
