Colton Haynes is not only eager to start a new chapter in his career, but the actor is also ready to let us in on more of his personal story.
The Arrow star, who recently walked away from the hit TV show and Teen Wolf, has come out as gay. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Haynes touched on a previous social media post that put his sexuality in question.
A Tumblr post in January regarding old racy modeling photos sparked speculation after a fan commented on Haynes' "secret gay past." Haynes coyly responded to the media frenzy with, "Was it a secret?"
His response was taken as his confirmation of being gay, however that wasn't case. At least, not at the time. "It was a complete shock. I wasn't ready to be back in the headlines," he said.
"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. But I felt like I was letting people down by not coming forward with the rest of what I should have said."
