TNT’s ‘Animal Kingdom’ star Jake Weary is a well-known actor and has been able to cement his place in the industry firmly.

He has also played a gay man on one of his projects, but is he a gay in real life too? Or does he have a girlfriend who he is dating and have plans to get married? Read along to find out!

On-screen Gay But Is He A Gay Off-screen As Well?

In one of his famous and successful projects, "Animal Kingdom," Weary portrays Deran, the youngest son of the family who struggles with his sexuality.

The show is about a family of criminals fronted by a controlling matriarch, Ellen Barkin, who plays Smurf and has her love-hate relationship with her children. In an interview with the NBC back in 2016, Weary and Jonathan Lisco talked about the show. Getting to the point, the interviewer asked,

 We found out early in the series that Deran is deeply closeted, but it didn't completely take over the story. How did you navigate how you wanted to tell this story?

Replying to that, Jake replied,

 I think there's something about this show that's surprisingly a lot about love. There's so much about family and what kind of relationships each member of the family has with each other and also outside of the family. A lot of the show is very much about staying in the family and keeping it a very exclusive. Every character is supposed to be so exclusive to Smurf and the family business, so I think that's another interesting aspect of it. It's a part of the struggle for Deran, because it's something that he's definitely struggling with that he can't really express to his family. 

Similarly, when the interviewer asked if Smurf, Weary's mother on screen, knows about his sexuality, the executive producer Lisco responded,

All I can say in response to that is we have discussed in the writers' room that she does, and we have discussed that she doesn't, but I think you make a very interesting point. Mothers always know, and if [she] doesn't, why doesn't she? I think that's the question to ask, so if we do go in the direction of her not knowing is it self-denial? Is it suppressing what is right before her? Is there some emotional reason why she's doing that?

But is he a real-life gay? Or does he have a girlfriend in his life to shut all those rumors? Any plans to get married anytime soon?

Dating Girlfriend Since 2017; Plans To Get Married?

Jake and his girlfriend Vera Bulder have been dating since 2017. That said, neither of the two has taken the liberty to divulge their history.

Like rest of the millennials, the duo let their Instagram do all the talking. Their relationship first made a splash in July 2017 when the Animal Kingdom actor shared a steamy photo of the two on the said social media platform. They have been inseparable since.

From wishing each other on their birthday to celebrating Valentine's Day in the most romantic fashion, Jake and Vera did it all in a short time they have been together. The trajectory of their romance doesn't rule out plans of getting married.
