Colton Haynes wasn't always the hunky Hollywood star he is today. The actor, who plays Arsenal on The CW's Arrow, and model, currently in a Diesel campaign, had quite a humble start to life on a farm outside Wichita, Kansas. In a recent interview with Schon! Magazine, Haynes shed light on some colorful incidents from his past, and explained his disdain for clothing.

On why farm life leads to nudity:

"When you grow up on a farm, you just don't wear clothes. Maybe that's the reason I have no dignity left; no filter. I think it's a side effect of growing up in a town of 600 people where we were the newbies in town."

On the beginning of his teenage modeling career:

"I was 15 and I had a fake ID and was being put in these tropical destinations. My first shoot [as a model for Abercrombie], I got arrested. I wasn't drinking--that's the truth--but I bought everyone else beer with my fake. We had this party in my hotel room and the maids called the police. They put me in handcuffs."

On his social media fans:

"I get very sexually aggressive Tweets. I want to make a coffee table book. This is one of my favorites: 'Do you want to build a snowman...or have sex with me?'"
