Will Photos of Colton Haynes Kissing Another Guy Stunt His Career?

Thus far, Colton Haynes is a no-name model-actor with bit parts on The Hills (“model,” himself), Transformers (“cafe kid,” uncredited) CSI: Miami (one episode), and Pushing Daises (one episode). So why pay him any mind? Because a series of twink-esque photos of the guy have surfaced showing him smooching on another dude — something that’s generally considered able to derail a career. But then there’s Adam Lambert! And he snogs other dudes! And everyone on the Internet can see them! So maybe these photos will just generate the porn-star-named Haynes a fanbase he wouldn’t otherwise have. The photos (below) look to be from an actual photo shoot (for XY?), but when it comes to smearing up-and-coming talent, it’s all the same. [Note: Photos removed]

      He looks pretty comfortable to me.

      I’d never heard of him before, and I don’t think the XY photos will be a career breaker. Presumably he’s out.

      Also, I wouldn’t really describe this as “porn.”

      Don’t gays have any clout in Hollywood? I thought we ran shit out there. There’s supposed to be some clique of powerful gay figures controlling things behind the scenes called the Gay Mafia or something.

      I’m sick and fucking tired of being worried about what straight people might think. All the money and intelligence between us and we don’t run shit! We get pushed around by everybody.

      It gets so old and boring to hear about pics of actors kissing another guy turning up on the Internet. So Colton kissed another guy. So what? BIG FRIGGIN DEAL!!!! Like that’s a surprise. Whether he’s gay, straight or bi, that’s his business. I wish Hollywood would stop making making all of the actors’ lives miserable. All that matters is his acting abilities, and I just watched him on the series premiere of The Gates. It’s very good so far.

      I remember him from this. It was a while back when myspace first took off. Him and the other perosn in the picture were suposedly together at the time and working on becoming modles then both deleted thier accouts. I kind of forgot about it but seeing the pictures just jogged my memory. With that in mind I am sure the this person is a gay.

      What are you guys talking about…he didn’t have a career? These pictures are obviously very old because i’ve seen him on The Gates, which finished it’s first season a while ago. And on that show he is a buff jock. So these pics had to have been taken years ago. And in hollywood that shoot is no big deal especially when it’s a paid mag gig.

      Anyone have a photo credit for the photographer of the kissing pictures? They’re being removed all over the ‘Net and I’m curious if the photographer did this or if Haynes, Inc., is saying they’re the owners and asking for them to be removed? Email me if you know or if you’re the photographer.

      Let me guess, Queerty got a cease-and-desist letter from Haynes’ lawyer and took the pictures down?

      How spineless.

      Is it really that hard to see that you can’t possibly base an invasion of privacy claim on a magazine photo that was taken, for payment, and published? And that it clearly is not pornography?

      What the attorney is doing here is not only legally insupportable, but also incredibly unethical.

      I think any queer should have an issue with a gay man who instructed his lawyer to describe those pictures as ‘sordid’ and ‘perverted’: last time I looked, describing gay kissing as such was HATE SPEECH. Also, they are palpably NOT private in any way: his lawyer is telling a pack of lies backed up by nothing, and if a queer like me, who cares nothing for Hollywood gossip, is looking at these stories, then the WHOLE GAY WORLD and most of the MTV watching audience must be aware of it.

      Yeah right. That genie popped out of the bottle ages ago and ain’t goin’ back. The naivete exhibited by some people regarding pictures and videos on the internet is always amazing. He has a lot in common with a number of members of Congress who thought no one would ever see their texts and photographs. Makes you wonder if they ever just watch the news and think “maybe I should not send a picture of my dick via the internet or a picture of me swapping spit with another dude or soliciting working girls and rent boys.”

      First of all he is straight. He did a photo shoot for pay. Heck, you can tell he is straight just by looking. He definitely has a career, and often he is pictured as a love interest, so it might hurt his career. But I doubt it. As he gets more and more famous there are more and more pics of him and his girlfriend out there. He is dating the girl that stared with him in the Gates. the red haired one.

      @Jack: Its more ethical to show questionable pictures of a minor? he is NOT gay. thats the whole point, he doesn’t want to be labeled something he is not. It was a paid photoshoot by an unethical photographer. The photos are detrimental to the actor because he is the leading man type, and to him personaly because they show him as something he is not.

      @alan brickman: Who in the heck cares whether or not he’s gay? There are so many ridiculous gossip queens who feel the need to question the sexual preference of most any handsome actor or model. I have no idea why their sexual preference matters in the least. Its not like any of these gossip queens who won’t let this die is going to get a date, so why bother in the first place? And please don’t come back with, “well, he should shout from the rooftops that he’s a fag, so young fags can have a role model!” These idiots should think about trying to be a role model as well, which means showing out younger brothers that sexual preference doesn’t matter and when an actor or model says he’s straight, that should be the end of the matter. Memberrs of the gay community are getting to be more invasive and insulting that the run-of-the-mill homophobic rednecks!

      I’ve seen the photos, cause I own the XY edition they were posted in as well as many other issues of the same mag. I can assure you the purpose behind the mag was to have positive examples to other younger gay teens so they didn’t feel so awkward at a young age. Although I do agree the pages were overly editorial at times, but the subjects were true to form and I didn’t sense any gay for pay teens in the pages or the stories.

      If Colton has some reason to be straight or bi now, like pressure from his or MTV’s PR companies I can understand all the backtracking from the XY photos. There is also the posssibility that he felt gay at a young age, and maybe not so much any more; but my money is on him being gay , and is just trying (and not very well either) to hide it so his reputation wont get tarnished on his way up in hollywood.

      Also one PR friend said to me, no news is bad news. Let the XY pic’s fly us making a fuss just might help him out.

      I can understand his concern…………but these days kids come out and wear their lives out and on their sleeves……….will it stereotype them, only if they allow themselves not to grow beyond any one role……..really Neil Patrick Harris is a great example….the popular TV series he was on….he was a womanizer and you believed it…..people and our community can be mean…….we as a community are the worst critics of anyone and everyone with any kind of talent and beauty….so Kiddo stay strong and ignore and breath………you’ll make it if you are meant too and are truly good/great at your passion/craft…
