Celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton has confirmed that he and You star Lukas Gage are together and “very much in love”.

Speculation about the two began after they began posting pictures together on Instagram, which some believed they looked like a couple in.

Now, during an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, Chris has confirmed that the rumours are true after being directly asked about his dating life.

“Yeah, actually,” he told legend and icon Drew Barrymore. “I’m very happy. Very much in love, and I feel very grateful to be able to share my time with someone very special.”

He continued: “Love is a really special thing and I think meeting someone that you really connect with is really, really special.”


This was then confirmed to be Lukas Gage, who recently appeared in The White Lotus, when an image of the two on holiday together appeared on screen.

“Oh my god look at you guys,” Barrymore said as the image appeared. “OK, and his name is Lukas Gage… looking like an ad for something I just want to be a part of.”

Lukas Gage recently went viral after appearing in You

Earlier this month, Lukas went viral with his queer sex scene on the aforementioned slasher series, You.

The actor made his debut in the fourth season of Netflix’s psychological thriller as Adam Pratt, a wealthy brat and the son of a rich East Coast family.

In the second episode, Joe (Penn Badgley) discovers Adam’s secret fetish as he witnesses the pretentious American expat enjoying a bit of watersports with an unidentified waiter.

It marks Lukas’ second explicit queer sex scene in the past couple years after his character was memorably rimmed by Murray Bartlett’s hotel manager Armond in the first season of HBO’s The White Lotus.
