Look who’s awesome in his white briefs underwear? It’s British television host and actor Andrew Hayden-Smith. The 31-year-old cutie will be appearing in two of the more controversial TV shows these days, Channel 4’s Banana and Cucumber. Doesn’t he look fabulous in his tighty whities?
Who wouldn’t want to jump in bed with Andrew (who’s also known by his initials AHS) even if all you do is read a book together?
AHS goes shirtless in his jeans.
Andrew is openly gay who came out back in 2004 when only a very few celebrities were brave enough to go public about their sexuality. His bravery earned him a spot in The Independent’s Power List in 2005. More about Andrew’s coming out from It’s a Queer World:
In 2004, ex-Byker Grove actor and CBBC presenter Andrew did the unthinkable for a young man on kids’ TV – he told the world he was gay. At the risk of being outed by a newspaper, he beat the tabloids to the punch and did an interview with Attitude magazine. “Coming out is pretty scary,” admits Andrew. “It’s bad enough when you’re almost certain that the majority of people around you will be totally cool with it. I was 21 and presenting kids TV at the time and was commended for what everyone kept saying was such a brave step.” It did his career no harm, and he’s proved an inspiration – and eye candy – for young gay men across the country.
Andrew Hayden Smith Boyfriend. Does Andrew have a boyfriend? Or is he single and available? In an interview with rucomingout.com he mentions that he does have a boyfriend. Here’s a photo of Andrew and his beau Addison courtesy of said site:
Asked whether he has any advice to young dudes out there who want to come out to their family and friends, here’s what AHS says (via rucomingout.com):
Looking back now, I wish I could tell myself at 15 that everything was going to be ok and that I was going to be as happy and comfortable in myself as I am now. I’m in a loving relationship and my boyfriend is very much part of the family when I take him home to Newcastle.
If you’re thinking about coming out, do it when you feel ready. Don’t feel pressured by anyone. It’s your life and you call the shots.
If you do come out and the situation doesn’t quite go as you’d hoped or things become really bad, there are fantastic charities like the Albert Kennedy Trust who can help. Coming to terms with your sexuality isn’t always easy. If you’re reading this and struggling, then I really hope you find the turning point you’re looking for, just like I did.
