With as many celebrities have been turning up lately and saying they’re gay, bisexual, or they “refuse to label themselves”, it has our little lady-loving hearts all aflutter. There are lesbians and bisexual women and genderfluid women all over Hollywood now and I personally am loving it.
Many of my celebrity crushes have already come out as Celesbians in the past few years and I get downright giddy every time I hear about a new one. But there are still a few women left who we would love to come out of the closet in 2016 – here’s our list of the top 12!
There is something about Zooey Deschanel that has completely captured my heart ever since the first thing I saw her in. She’s goofy and cute and bubbly and that makes me feel all fuzzy inside. Sadly, I know she’s not a lesbian – but I wish she’d give us a little glimmer of hope and hint at bisexuality!
Idina Menzel came crashing into everyone’s hearts with the release of Disney’s “Frozen”, and she holds a special place for lesbians. After all, she plays a character who doesn’t really seem interested in guys, right? Like, we could all picture Elsa being gay – and you know how bad lesbians want the actors who play lesbian characters to be… Well, lesbians. Right? Well, I’m not sure if Idina (or Elsa) really loves ladies, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream about it.
If you aren’t familiar with Indira Varma, she’s one of the actresses on Game of Thrones. She’s been in a lot of other things, too, but she’s most recognized as Ellaria Sand. She’s got everything we want in a celesbian: gorgeous looks, a propensity to play the “badass” female character, and even a sexy voice. All that’s missing is a confession of lady loving!
Ah, Janet Jackson… Making ladies swoon since, well, forever ago. We’re pretty certain that she’s never going to come out, but she’s another one that’s fun to think about. Tell me who hasn’t fantasized about her at least once!
J-Lo is another one of those celebrities that you just know is definitely not gay – but you hold out hope that maybe someday she’ll say she’s “always been interested in girls, but had to keep it a secret”. Hey, she’ll always be welcome as one of us – even if she’s straight.
Emma Watson may have started off as the nerdiest in the Harry Potter trio, but she has warmed our hearts by growing into the most incredible young woman. Not only is she a superb actress with an adorable smile, she’s also a great role model for girls everywhere – and she could be a lesbian hero (if it turned out she was a lesbian!).
We all know I’m a big softie for musicians, and Zoe Kravitz is no exception. She’s gorgeous and talented, and even a multi-tasker: Not only does she act and model, she also creates wonderful music. On top of that, she’s insanely sexy – giving lesbians everywhere something to dream about.
Playing a lesbian character will, of course, make you stand out as a lesbian icon. (Obviously – lesbians love other lesbians, even on TV and in books.) Truth be told, she’s not my favorite Pretty Little Liars star, but that’s not to say I wouldn’t love to hear her come out. Probably not going to happen – but we can dream!
Of course Lena Headey would make this list too. Many lesbians fell in love with her back when Imagine Me & You came out (myself included), but her interest has been renewed as she plays the character Cersei on Game of Thrones. She’s still just as sexy as ever, but sadly married to a man – sorry ladies!
Okay, this is going to make me sound a little lame, but… I was crushing on Olivia Munn before it was cool. I fell in love with her when she was on Attack of the Show! – but she captured the mainstream attention with her role as Sloan on The Newsroom. She actually speaks Japanese and is a total nerd in real life – something that makes her both relatable and badass, all at the same time.
Rosario Dawson should go without introduction. She’s the star of Rent and Clerks II (okay, maybe not the star, but she’s got pretty prominent roles in both). She’s always a bit on the tough side, with a soft inner core – definitely something most of us gravitate towards. We’ll welcome you with open arms if you decide to come out, Rosario!
Jennifer Lawrence has made quite a name for herself in her short time in the spot light, and she’s a face that’s not going to go anywhere, either. Between The Hunger Games series and Silver Linings Playbook, I can’t decide what to like about her more – and I would definitely be OK with her coming out!
Of course this list is just for entertainment, and it’s not really a good idea to make speculations about people’s sexuality. If you have a name to add to our list, drop it in the comments with a quick explanation why!
