Stars do their best to keep their private lives concealed but somehow or the other it backfires. With cameras tracking their every move, it is hard to keep up those ‘intimate’ details from being publicized. The film industry is a place where relationships, breakups, and affairs are quite common but what shocks people the most is when a celebrity seems straight but turns out to be homosexual. After months or years of hiding, celebrities eventually feel okay in exposing their sexual preferences. So, are you ready to see these five popular gay heartthrobs? Have a look.
5. Jonathan Bennett
Jonathan had many women lined after him. However, it was quite a disappointment when he revealed that he was gay in real life. The worst part was that this news was leaked by accident. This happened during an episode of the popular TV show “Dancing with the Stars” when Julianne Hough (dancer) unintentionally opened that Jonathan was a gay, even though he hadn’t yet declared his sexual choice to the public.
4. Neil Patrick Harris
It was the time when Neil Patrick was portraying the most popular playboy character Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother when he faced uncontrolled gossips about his sexuality. However, Harris finally came out in the open and said, “The public eye has always been kind to me, and until recently I have been able to live a pretty normal life. Now it seems there is speculation & interest in my private life and relationships.” Though he had millions and millions of women around the globe falling for him, he was contented as a gay. After ten long years of dating, Neil married David Burtka (actor) in 2014.
3. Jim Parsons
Even though “The Big Bang Theory” was on the air for many years at that time, diehard fans were shocked to know that Jim was a gay. In 2012, he openly came out to New York Times and declared that he was in a relationship for ten years with Todd Spiewak. Since Jim doesn’t talk much about it in the public, it still seems to astonish people when they hear about it.
2. John Travolta
Travolta hasn’t completely admitted that he is gay but evidences strongly suggest that there is something fishy. John’s private pilot always wanted to write a book, which featured their intimate, long relationship, but John stopped him. However, recently, a judge said that John could not stop him from revealing the story if it is true. So, we might expect some details soon. Besides John’s “ex” pilot, there were some other serious allegations too. A former employee of Royal Caribbean accused John of coming on to him aggressively during a journey in 2009. Also, there were many recorded incidents of John approaching men at the gym.

Colton has claimed that he is feeling better after openly coming out and admitting that he is a gay. During an interview with Out Magazine, the handsome 27-year-old star from “Arrow” and “Teen Wolf” reveals that he has experienced a lot of emotional challenges with his sexuality in the recent years .
He says, “I feel bad that I had to lie for so long. But I was told that was the only way I was going to be successful.” “When you are young in the industry, people take advantage of you, and they literally tell you that your dreams are going to come true. If you believe that, you will do anything.”
Colton describes that in Andale, Kansas (his hometown) is a place where “you cannot be gay.” As soon as he opened about his sexuality to his family and friends, his parents were devastated. He ran away from his home for 3 weeks. He was staying with one of his friends when he came to knew that his dad had committed suicide.
