Actor Lukas Gage shared that he's in a relationship with another man, the Daily Mail reports.
"Actor Lukas Gage and celeb hair stylist Chris Appleton are dating, as the pair were seen in a series of Instagram shots from a recent vacation they took to Punta de Mita, Mexico at the The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort."
That the couple are officially dating was confirmed by the website Just Jared.
"The 27-year-old 'You' and 'The White Lotus's actor and 39-year-old celebrity hairstylist for the likes of Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez hopped on Instagram on Monday (February 20) to post pictures of themselves vacationing together and making it Instagram official,"writes Just Jared.
"Both Lukas and Chris shared pictures themselves riding a four-wheeler while vacationing in Mexico. Lukas posted a couple more selfies they took while driving around wearing protective goggles and bandanas. He tagged The St. Regis Punta Mita hotel and captioned the post 'la mejor,' which translates to 'the best' in Spanish.
Appleton has worked with notable names such as Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande, with his work appearing in publications such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Vanity Fair.
Gage first made headlines when he called out a casting agent who ridiculed his West Hollywood digs during a Zoom audition. But what made him an overnight celebrity was his celebrated "salad-tossing" scene on the first season of "The White Lotus." He later became the de-facto spokesperson for rimming when he spoke out for normalizing the sexual practice. More recently, he was seen on Netflix's "You" as a practitioner of another taboo fetish.
Gage spoke to the Hollywood Reporter earlier this month about his love life.
'I do think everything works out the way it's supposed to, but I wasn't always able to see that,' he said. 'I'm getting better at it every year. The older I get, the more I realize I have no control over anything.
'It's kind of like dating - when you're seeking a partner you never find somebody. People can feel that you're trying too hard.'
