Yesterday (May 5) Colton Haynes has officially confirmed his homosexuality. ‘Teen wolf’ and ‘Arrow’ star said that being in closet he had been letting other people down. In January he was asked whether he ever had a secret gay past. He answered that there were no secrets, it is better just to live the life and enjoy it. And it led a lot of gossips about his non-traditional orientation. It terrified Colton a lot: I should have made a comment or a statement, but I just wasn’t ready. I didn’t feel like I owed anyone anything. I think in due time, everyone has to make those decisions when they’re ready, and I wasn’t yet.’. he said.
So, coming out was not so easy. But living in closet is also not the easiest thing. ‘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,’ he says. ‘I’d go home and I was still acting…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,’ the actor says.
B ut now everything has changed. It does not matter what people say, when you are brave enough to be yourself and to tell about it out loud.
