The 27-year-old actor, who stars on The CW’s Arrow, posted the photo to celebrate a big milestone on Instagram – reaching 4 million followers!
“So happy to make more art with @thetylershields. Today I hit 4 Million followers on Instagram. I want to take a moment to express my gratitude & love to all of you who’ve continued to support me,” Colton captioned the picture.
“I know I can be odd & come off a bit weird sometimes but honestly…my career & life didn’t actually start flourishing until the day I decided to listen to my own instincts and do what I want to do/be myself and not mask that,” Colton added. “I’m not going to conform to what people think is normal…and neither should any of you. That’s so freakin boring haha. Be weird. Be yourself cause at the end of the day…that’s honestly all that matters. Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, & magical person that you are. Sending love to all of you :).”
After the event, Colton took to his Instagram to share how much he enjoyed the event.
“Honestly had the best time playing tennis with @bryanbros yesterday at @DesertSmash . Thx to everyone who donated & helped raise money for @stjude ! :) I can now say I’m a pro tennis player and no one can take that away from me or tell me otherwise…I have proof!!!” he wrote.

Jake Robinson smiles for the camera while sitting front row at the Joseph Abboud fashion show held during New York Fashion Week Men’s Fall/Winter 2016 at Skylight at Clarkson Sq on Tuesday (February 2) in New York City.
The Odyssey actor sat alongside Bravo host Andy Cohen.
The 27-year-old actor swaps outfits with his 24-year-old Arrow co-star in the shoot, which features Emily smoking cigars and Colton donning a wig and lipstick.
‚ÄúThey made it very easy because they were not afraid to give me everything they had,‚ÄĚ Tyler told the mag about the duo’s chemistry during the shoot. ‚ÄúWith Colton and Emily it was perfect. You could really feel they knew each other and trusted each other, and that was amazing.”
Tyler said the photos were inspired by gender norms in the 1950s, adding, “I think it speaks a lot to the time we are in right now as androgyny is a two-way street.”
The 27-year-old Arrow star talks about how the highest-paid female model apparently make 95% more than the highest-paid male model, not “realizing” that’s an exception to the workforce as a whole.
“I’m not just a model and an actor, I’m a person who cares about stuff other than the way I look,” Colton says. “Men earning less than women, but doing the same work? How long has this been going on? Do other male models know about this?”
The 27-year-old Arrow star took to Instagram where he also shared a photo with her.
“Happy Birthday to the best friend a person could ask for @allymaki,” Colton wrote. “If I could write a book on how much this beautiful person has helped me over the last 9 yrs…we’d have a best seller on our hands.”
He continued, “She’s always been such a light in my life & makes me laugh more now than she did when we met in an audition room for a role she booked and I didn’t ha. I never would’ve gotten through this year without her being there for me & making sure I was sane. I love you so much Al. Thanks for always bein you & cheers to many more Miami bdays :) #HappyBdayAlly”
