Did Colton Haynes just come out in coyest way possible?
The Arrow actor has the Internet talking after he responded to a fan’s speculation about his sexuality. On Saturday (Jan. 2, 2016), a user wrote on Tumblr, “When I found out Colton Haynes had a secret gay past, I got so excited even though I know it makes absolutely no difference in my life.” He quickly responded to the remark, “Was it a secret? Let’s all just enjoy life and have no regrets.”
Although he’s kept quiet about the meaning behind his remark, a number of websites are assuming that his post was him publicly acknowledging that he’s gay. Over the years, his sexuality has been put under the microscope, but never confirmed.
The 27-year-old has also been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights and has posted many photos of his older brother (who is gay as well) with his husband and their daughter.
Last month, Haynes opened up about being hospitalized for anxiety, and his struggles with it since childhood. “For those of you who are suffering with intense anxiety…ur not alone,” he wrote on Twitter. “It’s been a constant struggle for me since 5th grade. It’s a battle.”
