Colton Haynes Officially Comes Out as Gay

Colton Haynes has officially come out as gay!

The 27-year-old Teen Wolf star confirmed the news to Entertainment Weekly in an interview released on Thursday (May 5) after rumors began circulating early this year.

“I should have made a comment or a statement, but I just wasn’t ready. I didn’t feel like I owed anyone anything,” Colton said about the rumors. “But I felt like I was letting people down by not coming forward with the rest of what I should have said.”

Colton said hiding his identity added to his struggle with anxiety.

“People want you to be that GQ image that you put out, but people don’t realize what it’s like to act 24 hours a day. I’d go home and I was still acting,” Colton said. “People who are so judgmental about those who are gay or different don’t realize that acting 24 hours a day is the most exhausting thing in the world.”

    He’s come out 5 times already. Not news

  • Joher

    No need to act dude, everyone knew already. I don’t get why he was still trying to convince people he was straight. His “acting” wasn’t fooling anyone.

    That’s awesome! I’m sure a lot of gay guys, myself included will feel that their fantasy is a lot more attainable now. It takes a lot of courage to come out in such a discriminating society. Kudos to Colton!

    I mean, it was kind of an open secret…we all knew lol. But congrats on finally feeling free!

  • Derek117

    Not that it was a big secret, but it’s good for Colton Haynes to fine inner peace. He’s right: it’s nobody’s business. But if he felt he needed to tell people about his sexuality, then it’s about him. Bravo, Mr. Haynes. Now, go and Enjoy your life!

    He was fooling the thousands of women on his Instagram page who are crying about him being gay.Women claiming they hate him now.

  • Gina

    Shocker lol. Congrats.

  • Joher

    To be honest those “thousands of women” are probably 12-14 year old girls that watch his show and probably the ones leaving all those comments lol.

    How disturbing that he’s been “acting straight”… if the past three years are him acting straight I wonder what the rest of his life he will be like…

  • Kim

    I was bored so I clicked on about 30 of their pages and sadly most of them were grown as# clueless women.They are probably the same women who were SHOCKED when Anderson Cooper and Ricky Martin came out.Lol They are probably dating guys with a Grindr account.

  • Juan Cocco

    get it girl!!!!!!

  • Joher

    That last part made me laugh out loud, you’re probably right

  • Jay814

    No surprise here, I’ve known since the first time I ever saw a pic of him.

  • PistolPackingMama

    Be gone troll!

  • PistolPackingMama

    Fantasy a lot more attainable? Dude, you think you have a chance with him? Good luck on that.

  • Kyle Millert

    Dear god you’re hilarious. You made my day. … Loads of women out there are so supportive too even when they don’t have to be so these girls mad at him are likely that “girls”.

  • Jack Naaf

    I had no idea who he was, but before I even read the headline I knew just from seeing his picture.

  • kunicle

    By “straight acting” he didn’t mean he acted “straight” or “masculine” because most gay men are masculine. He meant he was pretending to like women. He doesn’t seem feminine to me at all.

  • jh7058622

    My point is he’s been caught in very risqué photos taken of him with men quite a bit he wasn’t fooling anyone and if that’s him “acting straight I wonder what the “unleashed” version of him sexually will be… :shudders:

    Colton is an actor. His personal life is his. He made his decision. Let us live with it.We are not his friends or family. Go Colton. Go make some movies and TV shows. We are fans. We count, but we have no business in your personal life unless your are a terrorist, a murderer, an abuser. I liked you in Teen Wolf, OC, Arrow, and whatever is next. Thank you.

  • julieT

    He’s gay. Good for him. But can we please stop talking about people’s sexuality? In the end of the day…who cares about anyone’s sexuality. It’s boring and over used. Talk about something important like poverty, the industrial prison complex, animal cruelty. Who anyone choses to sleep with is their business, no one elses.

    I really wish celebrities would stop doing this, first of all we already knew, second we don’t care who you sleep with.

  • Tonja Mason

    Announcing Colton Haynes is gay is like announcing the grass is green. Only the stupid thought otherwise. That said, I’m glad he’s out if it is a relief to him. He seems like a sweet, sensitive guy with a good head on his shoulders.

  • Gerald Spencer

    I don’t know who you are but good for you. Kind of James Franco on the young buff side?
