Charlie Carver would quit acting if he was not able to say he is gay


The openly gay Teen Wolf star would rather finish his acting career than stay in closet. Carver, who played Porter Scavo in Desperate Housewives and Ethan in Teen Wolf, came out as gay via Instagram 1.5 years ago. And in his interview to the latest issue of the Attitude Magazine the actor says there was no other way for him: “I didn’t really give a f**k at that point because, for me, not that I was living under duress, but I’d said to myself if I can’t do this when I’m young, I’m not sure I wanna stay in this business”. His father Robert was also gay and Charlie figured it out when he was 12. “In the way that sons and fathers can have beef regardless of [sexual] orientation, it was just something where I wanted to be able to define myself, set my own rules. I felt like I had all of a sudden someone who I was gonna be forced to become, and I didn’t wanna be like him,” Charlie remembers, “I think he taught me, in the way that he lived his life, that your sexuality doesn’t define you. It’s an important part of who you are, but he had such a rich life. I think because I was frustrated by what I would call some of his own internalised shame, that it almost became this challenge to really get to the bottom of that quickly, for me. It kind of propelled me into being louder and brasher and more experimental. And I think that hurt his feelings sometimes, but I think he was also grateful.”
