The Sun claims to know the actor's identity and reported an "insider" saying that it is something "he has known for a number of years.
"His lawyers are bracing for the threat of potential action. The reality is that if he's knowingly put women at risk then that's disgusting and it's only a matter of time before that becomes public."
Friends have reportedly told him to open up about his condition.
"Obviously it would be a huge story, but the reality is HIV is entirely treatable in this day and age and shouldn't impact his ability to work or lead a normal life.
"It could be a game-changer in the understanding of HIV given that he's a straight man."
