After Colton Haynes, Another Teen Wolf Star Comes Clean About His Sexuality

By  | 


“No fear this year,” said Colton Haynes, shortly before he openly addressed his “secret gay past” on Tumblr earlier this month (which, according to him, was never really a secret). And it appears that another Teen Wolf star is taking those words to heart as well, as he, too, is coming clean about his sexuality.

In a handful of Instagram posts containing the same graphic, Charlie Carver, the 27-year-old actor who you may know as Ethan from the MTV series, proudly announced his homosexuality:

He kicks off the series of posts with the following: “As a young boy, I knew I wanted to be an actor. I knew I wanted to be a lot of things! I thought I wanted to be a painter, a soccer player, a stegosaurus… But the acting thing stuck. It was around that age that I also knew, however abstractly, that I was different from some of the other boys in my grade.”

Soon, he admits, “Over time, this abstract “knowing” grew and articulated itself through a painful gestation marked by feelings of despair and alienation, ending in a climax of saying three words out loud: “I am gay.”…”

“As a young man, I needed a young man in Hollywood to say that — and without being a d*** about it, I owe it to myself, more than anything, to be who I needed when I was younger,” which explains the graphic.

While being supportive of his admission, fans were still left wondering about Charlie’s twin, Max Carver. Don’t worry, though, he addresses that, too: “And let the record show my twin brother is just as cool for being straight.”
