Modern Family star Reid Ewing has used social media to casually confirm that he is gay.
Ewing who plays Dylan (Hayley’s cute but dumb boyfriend) on the show tweeted this week “Saw Eugene Bata on @GMA in the Body Dysmorphia segment connected to my article and I just want to say he is hot af”.
When a fan questioned if he has just outed himself, Ewing responded by saying “I was never in”.
The 27 year old star also opened up this week about his issues with cosmetic surgery and body dysmorphic disorder in a blog he wrote for the Huffington Post.
“In 2008, when I was 19 years old, I made my first appointment to meet with a cosmetic surgeon.” Ewing wrote. “I genuinely believed if I had one procedure I would suddenly look like Brad Pitt.”
I reality Ewing soon regretted his decision after enduring a series of botched surgeries
“Each procedure would cause a new problem that I would have to fix with another procedure.
Ewing says his desire to change himself stemmed from body dysmorphic disorder – a mental illness in which a person obsesses over the way he or she looks. Despite showing many signs of the mental illness, Ewing says none of the doctors he consulted raised the issue with him.
“Of the four doctors who worked on me, not one had mental health screenings in place for their patients, except for asking if I had a history of depression, which I said I did, and that was that. My history with eating disorders and the cases of obsessive compulsive disorder in my family never came up. None of the doctors suggested I consult a psychologist for what was clearly a psychological issue rather than a cosmetic one.”
Ewing now says that he wishes he could undo all of the surgeries and that he would not go under the knife again.
