Colton Haynes formerly of Teen Wolf and Arrow fame's ended speculation surrounding his sexuality by officially coming out as gay.

You might remember that, back in January, he reblogged a Tumblr post suggesting he had a 'secret gay past' writing: "Was it a secret? Let's all just enjoy life & have no regrets :)" Well now, after that story blew up, he's decided to address it publicly and admits he's 'happier than ever.'

Opening up to EW, Colton said: "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 yet. But I felt like I was letting people down by not coming forward with the rest of what I should have said."

Colton admitted he checked himself into rehab for 'terminal anxiety' after hinting at his sexuality on Tumblr, explaining: "It was a complete shock. I wasn't ready to be back in the headlines...I asked to step away [from acting] because I cared more about my mental and physical health than my career at the time.

"People want you to be that GQ image that you put out, but people don't realise what it's like to act 24 hours a day. I'd go home and I was still acting. People who are so judgmental about those who are gay or different don't realise that acting 24 hours a day is the most exhausting thing in the world."

He's in a good place now though, right? ""It took me so long to get to this point, but I'm doing so good," he added. "I'm happier than I've ever been, and healthier than I've ever been, and that's what I care about."

YAAAAS Colton.
