Chris Appleton Confirms He's Dating & 'In Love' With Lukas Gage

After weeks of dating rumors between Chris Appleton and Lukas Gage, the celebrity hairstylist has now confirmed the news on TV.

While filming a segment for The Drew Barrymore Show, the host asked Appleton how his “libido” has been doing as of late.

“It’s pretty good, actually,” he responded. Barrymore then asked if there was anything he’d like to share with her on the show. Appleton said:

“I’m very happy, very much in love. I feel very grateful to be able to share my time with someone very special. Love is a really special thing. And I think meeting someone that you really connect with is really, really special.”

Barrymore proceeded to sing Appleton’s praises and called him “the world’s greatest catch.” The show then popped up a picture of Appleton and Gage from their trip to Mexico.

In the social media post for the video, the official account for The Drew Barrymore Show also identified actor Lukas Gage as the man that Appleton was talking about.

Though Gage had recently noted that he didn’t like the speculation surrounding his alleged relationship with Appleton, it seems like they’re now ready to spill the beans and tell the world about their love story.

Congratulations to the now-official new couple!

Lucky Lukas.

I love that he is officially out.

What we know about him so far:

He's gay.

He lives in a shitty little apartment.

He likes getting his ass rimmed by Murray Bartlett.

Thumbs up!

Why didn’t Drew ask him what his children thought of Lukas?

I'd like to see Lukas date Appleton's son.

They'd make a cute couple.

Chris is too old for Lukas.

His son is the perfect age for Lukas.

“I’m very happy, very much in love. I feel very grateful to be able to share my time with someone very special. Love is a really special thing. And I think meeting someone that you really connect with is really, really special.”

He probably says that about every relationship he’s in, like most people. That’s why I’m single and turn down relationships, I don’t trust people. Especially gay men.

Guest on Kimmel this week, Lukas Gage was BORING and served a couple really show biz fake platitudes. Kimmel barely mentioned You (piss bottom character too racy for Flyoverstan?) and Gage didn't say anything about his personal life at all. OK it was a brief appearance but I tuned in to get a sense of Gage and drew a blank.

Chris realized that’s Sam’s vacuousness was even deeper then the Kardashians and ran in the opposite direction.

I'm surprised that this kid so effectively parlayed a small role in a short-run, single season of a pay-cable TV network show and being 'victimized' by some jerk who made fun of his normal starter apartment into star status and a gay following.

R20 - worst read ever. That's not the sum of Lukas. Look at his IMDB page. He's been working A LOT, for years and years. And when a working actor breaks through to some notice, it has to be something. Why not White Lotus and being a meme?

I’m sure Drew will have Lukas on the show as a followup, all publicity is good publicity and Lukas has a Gay sex comedy movie to promote. Hell reveal something intimate about about Chris in a playful way to get back at him and it’ll all be good. Probably about how the first time Chris rimmed him Lukas shout out “Murray! You’ve got a great tongue there!”

[quote] Chris Appleton Calls Lukas Gage 'Apple of My Eye' & Shares Couple Pics

Chris Appleton on Instagram: "Apple of my eye"

​We love love!

Chris Appleton shared a brand-new Instagram photo dump alongside The White Lotus, You, and Euphoria actor Lukas Gage, who he’s reportedly dating.

Dating rumors concerning Appleton and Gage started to surface in February 2023. Though the actor declared that he wasn’t a fan of the speculation a few weeks later, Appleton confirmed that he is dating Gage during an interview on The Drew Barrymore Show.

Now that they’re official on Instagram, on the red carpet, and on television, Gage and Appleton are seemingly allowing themselves to be more open about their relationship in public spaces. On Thursday, March 23, Appleton shared a photo dump including several pictures of them as a couple, calling Gage “the apple of my eye” in the caption.

Gage also made himself heard in the comments section of Appleton’s post. The actor wrote several comments that read:

“Apple to my ton.”

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

“Bake me into a pie.”

“Forget the apple you the whole orchard heart-eyed emoji.”

I love Lukas and I'm glad he's getting lots of acting roles.

He's having the last laugh over Michael Cimino and George Sear, the two "pretty" guys from Love, Victor.

Lukas was supposedly the "ugly" one.

Now they're scrambling for jobs, and Lukas is moving up the Hollywood celeb list.

R52 True. But we said the same thing about Richard Madden, and look at what happened there.

Then again, they always eventually trade in for a younger model.

Lukas Gage, star of You and White Lotus, is no stranger to sex scenes.

Gage played a relatively minor character in season 1 of White Lotus but went viral when he was rimmed by Murray Barlett's character, Armond. "I thought we should normalize rimming," the 27-year-old actor told Andy Cohen at the time. "I think a*s-eating needs to be talked about more. In the script, it was sex. We've seen sex on TV, let's have some a*s eating."

And in the most recent season of You, Gage's character was into piss play.

In a new interview with Variety, Gage shared how the latter scene has impacted people with real life kinks.

“Everyone should feel heard and feel seen. I never wanted to make anyone feel scrutinized or like the butt of the joke. I just believe that everyone should embrace all their kinks and everything that they love about themselves and not feel ashamed."

He also shared what his mom thinks of the scandalous scenes.

“She says, ‘That’s a great ass. Get that money," said Gage. "Get that bag and be committed.’ My mom’s cool. She’s like a cool little hippie lady. With nudity, I think we both share sort of a European vibe,”

Gage is clearly in the throes of a press tour because he also recently appeared on the Today Show, where he talked about his Instagram official man, Chris Appleton, and was asked what the celebrity hairstylist would think about his do.

“I think this mane needed to be tamed,” Gage smiled. “I also needed to be tamed.”

The two are clearly very happy together. "I feel very happy, very lucky and very much in love,” he said, adding, “That is a good-looking man,” when the show put up a photo of Appleton on the screen.

“There was just something about being in London, I got a taste of the Brits and couldn’t help myself. Can I say that onstage? He’s the best.”

I didn't realize Lukas Gage was so short. He also has a very stocky body, which makes him look fat, even if he's not. He really isn't tha hot. Cute? Sure. But I wouldn't call him hot or even handsome. He's not exactly traditional looking.
