Being in the closet is AWFUL!

Gus Kenworthy has officially been out for about a month and a half now, and it seems like he's ready to talk about his history of playing it straight.

The Olympic skier may currently be dating actor/hottie Matthew Wilkas, but that doesn't mean he's always kept it strictly dickly.

In a recent interview with US Weekly, the 24-year-old came clean about dating ladies in order to seem cool, saying:

"I used to hook up with girls to be cool with the guys. There were times I would cry afterward…

I was at the point where I couldn't continue to lie, I was worried that I'd be known as ‘the gay skier,' and everything else about me would be overlooked. I have a big fan base of young girls, and I didn't want to disappoint them."

We can't imagine having to live such a lie!

Luckily, Gus has received nothing but positive vibes from family and fans alike since coming out. He revealed:

"I was blown away by the support, and it's insane how many people have come out to me — even closeted athletes. I feel like I'm helping battle gay stereotypes, because I compete in a rugged action sport."

Keep on winning them points, Gus!
