Her Husband Has Been In the Entertainment Business Long Before She Came On-board

Janet Holden is married to her compatriot, Eric McCormack, who is a renowned actor and singer. He is popularly known for his remarkable performances in thriller movies and TV series such as Will & Grace, Perception, and Travelers. Born in Toronto on April 18, 1963, he began his acting career in 1986 and has been active in the Hollywood industry for over three decades and counting.

Eric McCormick’s Wife Is Making The Real Bank Just Like Eric Is Doing

Janet Holden has both an impressive resume and a ton of money from her career. Like her husband, she still works in the showbiz business. She has accumulated a decent net worth through her various stints on the set of several films and TV shows. Her net worth is said to be running in millions; nevertheless, it is still under review. Meanwhile, her husband’s net worth is currently estimated to be $15 million. Perhaps, when her net worth is revealed, it might not be surprising to see that she has a net worth which when combined with that of her husband will make them one of the richest couples in Hollywood.

Despite Their Longtime Marriage, Her Husband Is Still Plagued By Gay Rumors

Eric McCormick may be married to his beautiful wife for more than two decades but that has done little to quell the gay rumors that still plague him. Interestingly, the rumors are not out of place. The speculations arose after he played Will Truman, a Manhattan-based gay lawyer in the CBS hit sitcom Will and Grace.

Sadly, long after the end of the show, he has been tagged gay and is still haunted by the gay image of his character. The fact that he is a supporter of the LGBT community may have further fuelled the rumors. Even if he is gay, McCormick would have never hidden his sexuality.

Many people do not even want to consider the fact that he might be straight or that he is married and has a son. The tittle-tattle may have put a strain on their marriage but the couple is gallantly braving the storm. Given, there are many gay actors who portray heterosexual characters and also a lot of straight actors who play LGBT characters but just because someone plays gay onscreen does not mean that he is gay in real life.

Janet Holden Is Not A Social Media Freak

While her husband is very active on social media across a number of platforms, Holden is one very private person who probably sees social media as invading her personal space. As such she is hardly seen on any of the platforms, that is if she has an account on any of them. Perhaps, she would rather spend her free time with her furry friends – she has both cats and dogs – than scroll through social media feeds.
