Anthony Bridgerton is affable and wonderfully attractive on the show, which has piqued the interest of many devoted fans who want to know about Jonathan Bailey’s love connections and if the “Bridgerton” actor is dating anyone. Here’s all we know about Jonathan Bailey’s love life thus far!
Jonathan Bailey’s Past Relationships
Jonathan Bailey may be a renowned sex symbol on “Bridgerton,” but he keeps his personal and love life mostly hidden in real life.
According to GQ, he is openly gay and came out to his family and friends while he was in his twenties. However, Bailey, now 33, has admitted that working in the film and theater industries as a homosexual guy hasn’t always been simple.
Bailey came up about suffering with his sexuality while trying to develop a career in a March 2022 interview with GQ, and commented on professional advice given to a friend, which shaped his opinion of himself in his work.
“At the time,” Bailey recalled, “he was told, ‘There are two things we don’t want to know: whether you’re an alcoholic or if you’re gay.'” “All it takes is for one of individuals in positions of authority to say something like that, and it spreads like wildfire… So, of course, I had that thinking. Naturally, I believed that in order to be happy, I had to be straight.”
Bailey expressed his anxieties of being discriminated against in the film and theater industry because he is gay in this story. “I got to a point where I thought, ‘F*ck this,'” he told GQ. “I’d much rather hold my boyfriend’s hand in public or be free to put my own face image on Tinder and not be scared about it than get a part.”
Since he began performing professionally in the 2010s, the actor has remained committed to his craft and has never been romantically attached to anyone.
What is Jonathan Bailey’s current relationship status?
While the “Bridgerton” actor has never revealed whether or whether he is dating anyone, after winning the Laurence Olivier Award in 2019, he kissed a man who appeared to be actor James Ellis, implying the two were dating at the time.
He was later seen having lunch with Ellis in London in July 2021, tying the two together even more. It’s unknown whether Bailey and Ellis are still seeing each other because he keeps his personal life so private.
