Clearing off the Gay rumors:

Have a look at what he has to say about people calling him a gay:

”I just can’t find a girlfriend and I don’t just snog anyone or sleep with anyone. I don’t do that. I wish I could. But fuck man, you’d end up with syphilis.”

 He added,

” I’m not very successful with girls. I’m too busy making a twat of myself. I’m one of them, idiots. I want to be more like, who do I want to be like? Iwan [Rheon, off Misfits] is quite sexy. He’s handsome and girls like him a lot. I don’t know what it is. He’s just cool. I’m not very cool. I’m a bit of a tit. As a result, girls just tend to go “I’d rather not involve myself with him”. Girls don’t want to sleep with people who are terracotta either. Do you know what I mean?”

A bit of relief for the girls who are in love with this lad, right? Being single doesn’t mean someone is gay. This is what applies to this English actor as well. The “preacher” drama star, has cleared off his rumors.Maybe he is yet to find the right match for him or maybe he is just too busy with hs professional life.

Who knows, we might have to wait to know more about his personal and romantic life. Not much can be seen through social media sites as well in this regard. But let us not jump into any major decision just by the look of things. he might be waiting for someone who he can find a click with.
