Some stars think their same-sex flings were a phase. Some simply want to experiment. Others identify as bisexual, pansexual, queer, or whatever else they feel is appropriate for them. For many celebrities, love is simply about connecting with a person, not necessarily one sex or another, and so they decline to slap any kind of label on their feelings. From pop star Pink to actress Cameron Diaz, the stars on this list have discussed, alluded to, or been identified by others as one half of a same-sex relationship. Take a look through some of the celebrities that you might not know are lesbian, gay or bisexual.
10. Charlize Theron
Throughout her career, Charlize Theron has only publicly dated men, including Stuart Townsend and Sean Penn, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t had any same-sex romances behind the scenes. During a July 2017 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Theron admitted to previously having a sexual relationship with a woman when Cohen asked her the cringe-worthy “Have you ever swam in the lady pond?” question. “I mean, it’s just so strange when we talk so much about it. It should be normalized by now,” the Oscar-winner said. “When I was young, yes. I feel like when you’re young, you’re just kind of exploring it all, but it was pretty clear that I really liked dudes.”
Though she prefers men in her private life, Theron admitted that when making love in movies, one of her favorite scenes was with Sofia Boutella in 2017’s Atomic Blonde. “I don’t know if it’s because of the gender, but I think with Sofia it was really easy just because we’re both dancers. You have to choreograph those scenes quite a bit, otherwise they just becomes kind of silly. There’s a technical aspect to it. With her, it was really easy just because she thinks like I think … With guys, they tend to not be dancers, so it takes a little bit more work,” she told Extra. “Doing a love scene with guys is different, but I enjoy both.”
