Colton Haynes Addresses 'Secret Gay Past'

Colton Haynes just wants everyone to "enjoy life," regardless of their sexuality.

The Arrow star took to social media on Saturday to address a comment a user on Tumblr had written upon discovering Haynes' "secret gay past."

"When I found out Colton Haynes had a secret gay past, I got so excited even though I know it makes absolutely no difference in my life," the original message read.

"Was it a secret?" the 27-year-old actor responded on his own Tumblr, adding, "Let's all just enjoy life & have no regrets."

Though he didn't officially confirm his sexuality -- he's kept his love life private since rising to fame in 2011 in MTV's Teen Wolf -- fans on Twitter couldn't help themselves from expressing their opinions on the matter. Some were funny, while others were more serious:

Just last month, Haynes got candid about his struggle with anxiety, penning a personal story in a series of messages posted on Twitter.

"For those of you who are suffering with intense anxiety...ur not alone," he tweeted. "It's been a constant struggle for me since fifth grad. It's a battle."
