His relationship with Lauren Conrad? Yep, all made up.
Colton Haynes has revealed the extent of how much he was told to act straight in Hollywood in order to have a successful career.
The 28-year-old actor – who publicly came out last year – explained that his management would fabricate fake relationships with famous women in order to keep his true sexuality a secret.
“I was literally told from the day that I moved to Los Angeles that I could not be gay because I wouldn’t work,” Colton told Andy Cohen on his Sirius XM radio.
“The I was with my management team and team of people that just literally told me I couldn’t be this way.”
“They tried to set me up with girls. I was rumoured to date Lauren Conrad for six months because they were kind of angling a story.”
Colton admitted that some of the women he was linked to knew that he was gay, but ultimately keeping his sexuality a secret for so long gave him anxiety attacks.
