, but according to gossip columnist Perez Hilton, actor Van Hansis isn’t just playing gay on TV.
If you won't date a smoker, a drinker, someone with children, make that clear (but not rudely) in your profile.A huge supporter of the GLAAD Media Awards and media efforts to shine a light on the storyline, Hansis scored an Emmy nod for Outstanding Achievement by a Younger Actor in a Daytime Drama just last week.His storyline with co-star Jake Silberman has scored widespread attention as fans asked parent company Procter & Gamble Productions to move forward with the couple’s romance and allow them to kiss on screen.Though gay publications have been covering Hansis’ groundbreaking work on the daytime drama for months, his sexuality has never been a topic of discussion.Now, Hilton has linked the 26-year-old actor to Broadway performer Tyler Hanes, posting photos of the look-alike actors and saying he has on good authority the two are dating. There has been next to no speculation on Hansis’ sexuality in the media. Well that's what I'm saying and I'm sticking to it until Van really says he's gay and dating Tyler Hanes. Van Hansis said in an interview that he wasn't gay, he only played a gay boy. And it's probably a coincidence that they're wearing the same shirt.
