Fans of actor Zach Braff were surprised to read an announcement on his website Wednesday morning that he was "an open member of the homosexual community" -- but not nearly as surprised as Braff himself. The Scrubs star subsequently revealed that his website had been hacked, and he was still happily dating British model Taylor Bagley (who is, as far as we can tell, female).
TMZ has a screen cap of the fake site update, which was posted by a hacker at 3 a.m. on Wednesday morning. In a note addressed to his "loyal fans," fake-Braff claims that he has been "hiding a secret inside me for too long."
The statement continues: "The human mind can only bare so much before it explodes in emotions and well ... it is time to let the world know. I am excited and proud to announce that I am an open member of the homosexual community.
"This is not news to those closest to me, and I honor that they have kept it a secret for such a long time," fake-Braff adds. "This doesn't change anything. I am still Zach Braff and I am the same man I've always been, gay or not."
Braff's website now points to the website of Second Stage Theatre in New York City, which is currently showing Zach's new off-Broadway play All Good People.
