Arrow Star Colton Haynes Responds to Claims About His Sexuality: 'Was It a Secret?'
The actor commented on a Tumblr post claiming he had a "secret gay past"
In December, Colton Haynes opened up about his lifelong battle with anxiety – and now, he’s opening up about his sexuality. Sort of.
On Saturday, a Tumblr user posted about how excited he was when “he found out Colton Haynes had a secret gay past.” The user continued: “I got so excited even though i know it makes absolutely no difference in my life.”
The Arrow actor, 27, quickly responded to the remark on his personal Tumblr, writing, “Was it a secret? Let’s all just enjoy life & have no regrets :).”
Despite years-long speculation, Haynes has yet to publicly comment on his sexuality, until this somewhat cryptic Tumblr post.

The actor, who first gained fame as jock Jackson Whittemore on MTV’s Teen Wolf, was linked to now-married Lauren Conrad in 2011.
While we’re not sure if this counts as an official coming out, it seems that Haynes’ philosophy – to “enjoy life and have no regrets” – is alive and well as best exhibited by his epic Ursula Halloween costume.
