Amell jokingly added, "This parenting stuff is easy."

Host Chelsea Handler then asked the Canadian actor to clarify his heterosexuality, given that he's played many gay characters over the years. "I want people to know not to hit on you if they're men," the comedienne explained.

"I couldn't do the second season, and in the second season, my character went from not gay to really, really, really gay."

"It was my first acting job and I remember telling my agent—I had been doing it maybe four months, and at the time I thought maybe being a spin instructor some intrinsic value to it. And it doesn't at all—I remember telling him, ‘If I don't get this job, I'm going to quit.' And i got it, so…"
