Anderson Cooper and Benjamin MaisaniAt this point, the famed CNN anchor essentially lives in the limelight. Many people are unaware that he has been in a relationship with a non-celebrity man since 2009. Benjamin Maisani has quite a different career from Anderson Cooper – after all, he is the owner of a gay bar!

The two bought a historic Connecticut property together, though they have since called it quits. Cooper told the Daily Mail in an interview,“Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago. We are still family to each other, and love each other very much.”

Victor Garber has earned numerous fans for working on productions like Godspell, Legends of Tomorrow, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. It seems like the actor prefers to keep his personal life on the down low, however.
