Rumors about his sexuality have been swirling around “Teen Wolf” alum Colton Haynes for some time now.
Amidst the speculations on social media, Haynes consistently remained silent. Until a male fan posted on Tumblr about Colton’s alleged “secret gay past.”
People magazine cited the fan post as: “When I found out Colton Haynes had a secret gay past, I got so excited even though I know it makes absolutely no difference in my life.”
The fan apparently cited the old photos of Haynes passionately kissing a man for the gay publication XY magazine as the actors “secret past”, Huffington Post wrote.
Amidst the speculation on social media about his sexuality, Colton has consistently remained silent about the issue until he wrote a cryptic message recently saying, “Was it a secret? Let’s all just enjoy life & have no regrets :),” which seemed to be a response to the Tumbler post.
Is the “Arrow” star now coming out? Colton’s brother, Joshua Haynes, is gay.
Haynes also sparked rumors about his sexuality in 2013 when he was spotted holding hands with his “Arrow” co-star John Barrowman. Barrowman is a married man and openly gay.
According to Huffington Post, Barrowman dismissed the photo at the time, saying in an interview that he and Haynes were really good friends. “He’s a great kid and we have a great time and he’s becoming a really good friend, which I think is really nice,” he explained.
Colton’s fans on Twitter have mix reactions. Some are uncertain if the revelation was official while others gave support and positive remarks for the actor. There were also some who were not even surprised, Us Weekly reported.
The “Arrow” star earlier revealed his lifelong struggle with anxiety and for being hospitalized for it.
He then showed sympathy to those just like him, and wrote on his twitter, “Anxiety had put me in the hospital countless amounts of times…” “For those of you who are suffering with intense anxiety… ur not alone.”
