Zach Braff -- the "Scrubs" actor and the man personally responsible for all of "Garden State" -- seemingly came out of the closet with a personal statement on his website.

Ah, if only. Braff released a statement this afternoon on Facebook that his website had been hacked. He seemed to be taking it with good humor, though:

My old website got hacked. Someone issued a 'coming out' statement on my behalf. I'm still straight and in love with my girlfriend. But not too straight; I still love musicals, brunch and Doogie Howser."

Wait ... loving Neil Patrick Harris and brunches are now specifically "non-straight" tipoffs? It looks like a lot of us are going to have some deep soul-searching to do tonight.
