Who is Michael Hsu Rosen’s boyfriend?

Michael hasn’t spoken publicly about having a boyfriend. However, fans have definitely rumoured he’s seeing someone.

When Michael starred in HBO’s Looking: The Movie he played Jimmy’s (Jonathan Groff) boyfriend.

Michael has previously spoken about fans getting a little too close to him while filming Looking. He said “A really cute, nice boy came over and apologised for the other guys even though he didn’t know any of them. He was sweet enough to tell me how good he thought I was in the non-sex scenes, and we hit it off.”

This may suggest Michael has met somebody while on set.

There has also been speculation surrounding Michael and fellow actor Barton Cowperthwaite after a cheesy Instagram was taken. However, sorry to break it to you but Barton has been dating jewellery designer Sophie Thoerner for more than two years.

Michael came out at the age of 15 and has been very open talking about his sexuality. He has undoubtedly been an inspiration to many people.

When appearing on Rosie O’Donnell’s radio show, promoting West Side Story, Michael talked about how her show inspired him.

He said: “I got emotional telling Rosie how moved I was as a teenager watching her on Will & Grace when she told Jack, ‘I’m gay’. It was pretty clear I was saying, ‘me too’. After that, I decided that, of course, I can talk about being gay. Why wouldn’t I?”
