Reid Ewing may have never publicly said he was gay in the past, but he definitely wasn’t trying to hide it either. The ‘Modern Family’ star called a man “hot” on Twitter, leading to buzz among fans, but Reid had no problem admitting that he’s attracted to guys. See his tweet here!
No need for a major, breaking announcement here! Reid Ewing confirmed a fan’s speculation that he’s gay on Twitter, but he doesn’t think there’s any reason for people to be surprised…because he was never trying to hide this fact about himself. Check out his subtle but telling response to the tweet here!
“Saw Eugene Bata on @GMA in the Body Dysmorphia segment connected to my article and I just want to say he is hot af,” Reid tweeted over the weekend. “Did you also just out yourself?” a fan responded, nothing that Reid had commented on how he found another man attractive. But, don’t worry, the 27-year-old wasn’t offended about being called out. “I was never in,” he fired back. Nothing to hide!
Reid wrote an honest, emotional op-ed piece for the Huffington Post last week, in which he admitted to his struggle with body dysmorphia and revealed he had several procedures done to “look like Brad Pitt.” The essay gained a ton of traction, and is what he was referring to in his original tweet about Eugene Bata and GMA.
“After all the swelling went down, the results were horrendous,” the Modern Family actor said of his first plastic surgery — cheek implants. “The lower half of my cheeks were as hollow as corpse’s, which, I know, is the opposite of what’ you’d expect, as they are called cheek implants. They would be more aptly called cheekbone implants.” As he continued to be unhappy with the results of more surgeries, and he became addicted to going under the knife, so he chose to write this op-ed to raise awareness.
“It’s a problem that is rarely taken seriously because of the public shaming of those who have had work done,” he explained. “The secrecy that surrounds cosmetic surgery keeps the unethical work practiced by many of these doctors from ever coming to light. I think people often choose cosmetic surgery in order to be accepted, but it usually leaves them feeling even more like an outsider. We don’t hear enough stories about cosmetic surgery from this perspective.”
