Speaking to People, the star recalled that he and "Ryan" worked together. While they kept their romance lowkey, he described presenting a friendly persona in public but "secretly holding hands on set."
"Ultimately, I do think she loved me. We loved each other and that was very real in our bubble. It was fantastic. You know, it was really beautiful. I admired her and how she inspired me in many ways. But feeling hidden was far too painful. That was impossible and not a sustainable relationship at all. And it taught me that I was not gonna do that again," Elliot said.
He continued, saying that, "Some of my closest friends didn't even know I was in a relationship. And I was in a relationship where we were in a relationship for a decent amount of time. I mean, that is next level."
The actor also revealed that he was verbally assaulted by an A-list actor months after coming out.
Elliot even described his first gay bar experience and first meaningful kiss with a girl.
