I think he has always lived fairly openly but has never confirmed nor denied his sexuality.

Not sure why anyone would be surprised at his announcement. I met him at a soap event and knew right away he was gay. Nice guy, so what?

Of course. Aren’t all the most attractive men gay? Coming out seems a little passe to me, but I live in a big city where nobody cares about sexual preference anymore.

That’s the problem with society. There shouldn’t never had been “speculation” and “rumors” in the first place. People need to learn to mind their own business in life and stop interfering on others.
