I can remember when he was rumored to be gay, and rumored to be coming out of the closet. Then his agent said, "Sorry, just kidding. I think you all got confused because JTT was in a movie where he played the role of a gay teen who came out of the closet. He's not really gay."
So now he's 37 years old and never married or had a girlfriend. And he's still living off those Home Improvement residuals.

He also played a gay character in the TV movie Common Ground. I remember JTT fans such were excited to see him in a speedo (he also played a swimmer). Not sure if his character in Speedway Junky was gay or not. It's been years since I've seen it. After that, he had a guest or recurring role on Smallville and then nothing else after that for many years. I did catch his guest appearance on Last Man Standing by accident.

I think I read on Nifty.org that Zachary Ty Bryan took it around Season 4 of Home Improvement during a party at Tim Allen’s house. He couldn’t resist Jonathan any longer and cornered him in an upstairs bathroom. Zachary came up behind Jonathan and wrapped his muscular arms around him, breathing in the scent of Jonathan’s freshly shampooed hair before kissing down the side of his neck. And you can imagine where it went from there.
How the author of the article knew all these details, I have no idea.

JTT identifies as Christian. It is a German name and I know many Weisses that are not Jewish. Or he had a Jewish ancestor where he got his name from and that was it. I remember reading articles about him going To church or supported Christian organizations or something like that. Anyway I logged on to say that perhaps the reason he doesn’t do anything anymore is that the rampant abuse that the child stars went through in the 80s and 90s has soured him up industry. I don’t know if he ever was photograph by Bob Villard but I remember some pretty sketchy pictures of him when he was a teen magazines that would never be published today. While I think some actors do you fall into a drug spiral I think a lot of them just leave and don’t go back to Hollywood. CB Barnes Who is in a lot of stuff in the 80s and 90s reply directly to a Twitter post to Corey Feldman saying that while he is not going to talk about it he was abused to as they all were and they were just commodities and not people. I remember seeing his stuff and really thinking he was a good actor. It is super sad and depressing to think what they went through

Noah Hathaway Was photographed by Bob Villard.

He is covered in tattoos and looks nothing like he did when he was younger or what you would’ve thought he would’ve grown into. His claim to fame now is pulling out of 80s shows. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ODs. The pictures that Bob took of him should’ve gotten him arrested. He did it in Germany or at the time the age of consent is 14.

R72 same. I also thought JTT was going to go far as an actor. Or be very successful outside the industry because he was very smart and always talking about getting a good education to have something to 'fall back on'.
But from what I recall he went to Harvard around 2000, did a semester at st. Andrews in Scotland, but didn't graduate Harvard and ended up transferring to Columbia and graduating there in like 2009. Maybe it was for a grad degree, but I don't think so. I guess he really liked school and took a long ass time to get his BA.

As for him being anti-choice, he was very young when he made that PSA and was possibly put up to it by a parent. You can't extrapolate his political beliefs from something he did as a child that may not have been his idea.
