Sarah Hyland Confirms Her 'Modern Family' Character Is Bisexual
This fan theory can be put to rest now.
Spill the tea, girl.
On Wednesday, Modern Family star Sarah Hyland confirmed a major fan theory about her character Haley Dunphy. When a fan asked Hyland if Haley is bisexual, the actress tweeted a simple response: “I don’t know what the writers would say? But I confirm,” wrote Hyland.
Modern Family writers, including co-creator Steve Levitan, have yet to confirm or deny Hyland’s tweet. Over the course of the show’s nine seasons, Haley’s dating life has always been a hilarious and blissfully complicated recurring storyline. However, Haley has only been shown dating men so far. Her most notable boyfriends include Dylan and the beloved manny, Andy. With 15 episodes still left in the season, anything’s possible, right?
Hyland’s confirmation about Haley’s sexuality doesn’t come as a big surprise. In the Season 9 premiere, both Haley and Luke argued about whether the person on the jet-ski who hit on them was a boy or a girl. Haley concluded by stating she didn’t care about the gender of the person she was making out with.
In fact, what we really want to know is whether Haley and Luke are into birds. That line about them only finding birds on the island and them not even being “hot birds” was a real kicker. What’s up with that, guys? We need to know!
