Since 2005, Matthew Gray Gubler has been portraying the role of a crime profiler named Dr. Spencer Reid in Criminal Minds. A year before that and all along, he has been involved in about 40 projects in various capacities: as an actor, director, cinematographer, editor, producer, writer, and what have you.
The American actor has also pulled off high profile modeling jobs with brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Marc Jacobs. As if these are not enough achievements already, Gray is a New York Times bestselling author and has equally thrived as a painter. Is his love life as fulfilling as his professional life? Let’s find out together.
Has Matthew Gray Gubler Ever Been Married?
To the best of our knowledge, Matthew Gray Gubler has never been married. Throughout his long-running showbiz career, the multitalented actor has never tied the knot with anyone. Until this fact change, Gubler retains his position as one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood.
Although he is yet to get hitched officially, Gubler has quite an interesting relationship timeline. In the early years of his career, he was romantically linked to a model and musician named Charlotte Kemp Muhl. He has also been linked to one of Tinseltown’s most promising stars, Kat Dennings.
Who Has The Actor Dated?
His relationship with Dennings began in 2007 and, although many people seem to think the relationship lasted for a few months, it is perhaps the longest-lasting relationships that the thespian has had. Because of the complex nature of Gubler’s romantic life, people failed to realize that the relationship endured for a good while.
Following his breakup with Kat Dennings, Gubler was linked to Victoria Asher, a music artiste. In July 2013, it was also reported that a relationship seemed to be brewing between the actor and Taylor Swift. As exciting as their possible relationship may be, this report was never confirmed by either of the two.
What Happened to His Relationships?
After breaking up with Kat Dennings, they remained friends even to the point of working together on the film Suburban Gothic years later in 2014. Thereafter, Gubler spoke glowingly of Kat, saying it was one of his best experiences so far in the industry to have worked with her.
The handsome actor granted an interview to Glamour Magazine that removed the mystery shroud from his love affairs. In that interview, he explained a bit of what we can call his romance philosophy. According to him, he tends to fall in love with people who are unique, so unique you can’t let them go. That’s why he tends to stick around with them even after formally breaking up.
Quite interesting, isn’t it? But then, you might ask why he breaks up with them if that’s the case. We found the answer to this in his extremely busy life. He does not seem to have enough time to devote to his ladies, at least, not enough to satisfy their emotional needs. For instance, when he newly began the relationship with Kat Dennings was around the time he took up his iconic role on Criminal Minds. According to reports, shootings lasted up to 15 hours per day. This ate up much of the time the actor would have devoted to his relationship with the actress.
They tried to manage the situation for quite some time. But eventually, Kat reached her breaking point and they ceased being lovers. We also got winds that his split with Charlotte Kemp in 2005 had something to do with his inability to devote enough time to her.
Is Matthew Gray Gubler Gay?
Matthew Gray Gubler does not seem to be particularly interested in having a committed relationship. Instead, he seems to be more interested in his career. Because of this, it has been speculated in certain quarters that he’s gay. In 2012, the creator of Criminal Minds disclosed that Gubler’s character on the show was initially meant to be bisexual. This piece of information has been misconstrued to fuel the speculations about the actor’s sexuality.
Anyway, going by Matthew’s previous choice of romantic partners, it is easy to assert he’s straight. Also, the actor has never made any statement that suggests otherwise. Matthew Gray Gubler has never admitted to being bisexual in real life, neither has he had any romance with a male partner.
