The Internet is buzzing with word of a new couple in Hollywood! Taylor Schilling of Orange Is The New Black
star and creator, Carrie Brownstein, have reportedly taken their friendship to the next level.
Late last month, the pair was spotted catching up over dinner – and getting cuddly – at a restaurant in Portland where Brownstein films the show. Is Schilling taking a cue from her queer character, Piper Chapman, on OITNB
who is also about the lady loving? If she is, she’s in good company! Read on to find out the who’s who of queers in Hollywood.
St. Vincent (Annie Clark)
The ultra talented musician is tight lipped about her personal life, but that didn’t stop her from flaunting her brief romance with Brit model, Cara Delevingne, all over Instagram. “I believe in gender fluidity and sexual fluidity,” Clark told Rolling Stone
. “… I think you can fall in love with anybody.”
star opened up in 2012 to Out
about her long-term high school romance with a close girl friend. Anderson said she decided to openly talk about the relationship as a way to honour her former partner – who died of a brain tumour in 2011 – rather than hiding the memorable experience.
“I have a healthy sexual appetite and a healthy imagination,” the Tony Award winner – and Spice World
star – told Instinct
. “I still define myself as bisexual even though I have chosen to be with Grant [Shaffer]. I’m sexually attracted to the female form even though I am with a man, and I just feel that bisexuals have a bad rap.”
Billie Joe Armstrong
Green Day’s front man says he always knew he was bisexual and describes it as being “a beautiful thing”, adding that bisexuality is the orientation that everyone is born with, but we’re socially conditioned to swing one way or the other.
Despite openly using homophobic words on Twitter, the rapper came out as queer in an interview with the New York Times
in 2012. “I’m not trying to be, like, the bisexual, lesbian rapper. I don’t live on other people’s terms.”
Evan Rachel Wood
Although she’s married to English actor Jamie Bell, the True Blood
actress identifies as bisexual. “I can’t say I’m one way or the other because I’ve honestly fallen in love with a man and I’ve honestly fallen in love with a woman,” she told Marie Claire
in 2011. “I don’t know how you label that, it’s just how it is.”
The music legend helped pave the way for androgyny and sexual liberation in the 70s, and admits that he used his bisexuality to elevate his career. “It’s true – I am a bisexual,” he told Playboy
during his hay day as a star. “But I can’t deny that I’ve used that fact very well. I suppose it’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”
The model – who has lent her face to Victoria’s Secret, Burberry, and Mulberry – has been linked with Michelle Rodriguez, Harry Styles and Annie Clark (above), but says she’s “just having fun” and doesn’t feel a need to identify one way or another.
It’s assumed that the actor is gay, but he actually identifies as queer. In an interview with the Washington Post
, the troubled star says that, “just because I’ve been with guys, and I’m bi, doesn’t mean I’m gay.”
“It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with,” she told reporters. In a separate interview with Out
, the “Die Young” singer added, “I wouldn’t say I’m gay or straight – I don’t like labeling things anyway. I just like people.”
