Colton Haynes has officially confirmed that he is gay. The Arrow and Teen Wolf actor made the revelation in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

The star responded to a Tumblr post he wrote in January which caused a storm of questions –and which many took to mean he was coming out as gay.

He told EW: “It was a complete shock. I wasn’t ready to be back in the headlines… 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.”

Of coming out as gay in Hollywood, Haynes said: “People want you to be that GQ image that you put out, but people don’t realise what it’s like to act 24 hours a day. I’d go home and I was still acting.

“People who are so judgmental about those who are gay or different don’t realise that acting 24 hours a day is the most exhausting thing in the world.”

The EW article also confirmed that Haynes is gay, and that he has been out for years to family and friends.
