At 27, Colton Haynes is ready to live his own life on his own terms.
“People want you to be that GQ image that you put out, but people don’t realize what it’s like to act 24 hours a day. I’d go home and I was still acting,” the “Arrow” star shared of his sexuality with Entertainment Weekly. “People who are so judgmental about those who are gay or different don’t realize that acting 24 hours a day is the most exhausting thing in the world.”
Haynes, who had come out as gay to family, friends and co-workers early on, wasn’t prepared to face the masses in January after he responded to a Tumblr post about his “secret” gay past.
“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 ready yet,” he said.” But I felt like I was letting people down by not coming forward with the rest of what I should have said.”
“I asked to step away because I cared more about my mental and physical health than my career at the time,” Haynes explained. “I’ve had terminal anxiety my entire lie. Physically ill, fainting. I’m 27-years-old, and I have and ulcer. I had to step back.”
Finally in a place of ease, Haynes admitted that he has never felt better.
“It took me so long to get to this point, but I’m doing so good,” he noted. “I’m happier than I’ve ever been, and healthier than I’ve ever been, and that’s what I care about.”
