He further wrote how complicated it was for him to realize his sexual orientation as a teenager. Even saying, “I am gay” made him hate himself a little.

But, he hung on until he courageously expanded this circle of truth to tell his family. He also seemed grateful to his family, who were very understanding of him. He has further pointed out some essential points for any others going through the same struggle in their life.

The process of coming out of the closet was not an easy task for Charlie, but he went all the way through it and is now getting appreciation from all the world for his bold step. What mattered most to Charlie was his brother's approval and acceptance of his gay sexuality, and without any doubt, Max came out as a loving brother.

Love You Always:

Charlie's brother Max also took to Twitter to react to his brother’s confession. He kept it simple but meaningful by tweeting, “Love you always.” It is evident how much love the twins have for each other.

Further, Max attended a Human Rights Campaign alongside his brother in March 2017 and advocated equality among people of all genders, sexuality, and race. Max also criticized some people for thinking, and his sibling should be treated differently solely based on their sexuality. 

Max Carver Dating Life:

Speaking of Max Carver, he is straight and was even dating his co-star from ‘Teen Wolf,’ Holland Roden. She previously used to date another co-star, Ian Bohen, before this. But the past wasn’t something they would worry about, especially when they looked so good together as girlfriend and boyfriend.

Besides, they were all good friends and had let go of their differences.

However, by April 2017, Max and Holland had broken up and parted their separate ways. Max has not disclosed if he is dating anyone now, but it's hard to imagine a good looking actor to be single.
