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