Scrubs star Zach Braff, 36, is denying rumors that he's gay after someone hacked into his old website to post an official "coming out" letter in his name.

The unused site was updated this yesterday for the first time since 2006, said a rep for Braff. The faux confession was written from Braff's perspective and admitted that "I have been hiding a secret inside me for too long …. I am excited and proud to announce that I am an open member of the homosexual community." The hacker added a reminder about his (false) identity for good measure. "This doesn't change anything, I am still Zach Braff, and I am the same man I've always been, gay or not. ;)" Of course no forged confession is compete without a winking emoticon.

Braff also addressed the incident, assuring that "I'm still straight and in love with my girlfriend. But not too straight; I still love musicals, brunch, and Doogie Howser," reports UK's The Daily Mail. The aforementioned is model Tayler Bagley, whom Braff has been seeing for a few years. He has previously been linked to actresses Mandy Moore and Shiri Appleby.
