Modern Family Star Confirms He’s Gay

Modern Family star Reid Ewing has confirmed he's gay. 

Ewing, 27, who recently opened up about his struggle with body dysmorphia, confirmed he is gay in a Twitter exchange. 

However the actor points out that he's not 'coming out' as he was 'never in'. 

The actor plays Dylan, Hayley's boyfriend in the series. 

Ewing also recently wrote an essay for Huffington Post's Healthy Living section in which he opened up about battling body dysmorphia and the different plastic surgery procedures he underwent to obtain a certain look. 

"Body dysmorphic disorder is a mental illness in which a person obsesses over the way he or she looks ... In my case my looks were the only thing that mattered to me.

"I think people often choose cosmetic surgery in order to be accepted but it usually leaves the feeling even more like an outsider. We don't hear enough stories about cosmetic surgery from this perspective". 

His fans have applauded him for bravely opening up about his sexuality in the tweet and for helping to spread awareness about mental illness.
