Modern Family star Reid Ewing has come out as gay, saying he was “never in” in the first place.

The actor has played Dylan, the on-screen boyfriend of main character Haley Dunphy, in the comedy since 2009.

After a Twitter user asked if he was gay, he replied that he was never even in the closet.

It comes after Reid shared his struggles with body dymorphia on Huffington Post last week, where he revealed he underwent several plastic surgeries to try and “fix” his face.

He said: “I genuinely believed if I had one procedure I would suddenly look like Brad Pitt.”
