Colton Haynes gave an interview and talked about how he was told he could not be gay and work as an actor:
“I was literally told from the day that I moved to Los Angeles that I could not be gay because I wouldn’t work. Then I was with my management team and a team of people that just literally told me I couldn’t be this way. They tried to set me up with girls. I was rumored to date Lauren Conrad (The Hills) for six months because they were kind of angling a story. And then I dated every other young person which of course I didn’t date.”
Colton said the girls he "dated" knew they were beards.
“They knew the whole time…It was like a Tab Hunter situation.”
He suffered from anxiety and agoraphobia and when he came out he says it was like a weight had been lifted. I'm so glad he's out and happier now!
