OKAY BUT CAN WE TALK ABOUT COLTON HAYNES FOR A MINUTE.
Colton Haynes who played in a Dr. Pepper commercial that no one ever saw ever. Colton Haynes who thinks he’s the most unfunniest and boring person alive, but it really isn’t. Colton Haynes who goes over the top every year on Halloween costumes and it looks like a professional done it. Colton Haynes who never thought he’d make it this far, but has done films with The Rock, Tyler Hoechlin, Stephen Amell, Emily Rickards, Dylan Neal, and will be working with Scarlett Johnson. Colton Haynes who always plays the dickhead in movies and shows, but is actually really nice and super laid-back in real life. Colton Haynes who talks for a bit in the beginning of a group interview, but ends up shying away to the background. Colton Haynes who can act, sing, model, and more, but when asked about hidden talents he replies, “I have no hidden talents” or “Eating is my talent, my best talent”. Colton Haynes who loves coffee like a lot of us and isn’t ticklish. Colton Haynes who admitted he became a bit of a comic book fan after playing in Arrow. Colton Haynes whose smiles are like the sun shining above the clear ocean that are his gorgeous blue eyes with calming waves crashing into the warm sand that are his secret freckles scattered across his face you have to look for sometimes to find. Colton Haynes who is beautiful, incredible, and strong, but can still be insecure. Colton Haynes who has struggled with anxiety for a long time, even hospitalized on a few occasions, but still pushes himself. Colton Haynes who was terrified to, but with enough support from his friends, family, and fans, found the courage to come out as gay, even if there’s going to be some people against it.
Can we talk about Colton Haynes, because no one else seems to.
“It was his ability to laugh at himself, to make light of problems, to tease and be playful, to employ a wry, self-deprecating sense of his own limitations and frailties that had such great appeal.”
