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.”
