Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell has been discussing why she won’t label her sexuality.
On her hit show Pretty Little Liars, her character, Emily, is lesbian, but in real life she doesn’t put herself in on category.
When I started, people were like, ‘What are you?’ I’m like, right now I’m dating a guy. I don’t know what it’s going to be in three years,” she told the mag, which she graces the cover of in a red hot swimsuit for the June 2016 issue. “You love who you love. Black, white, polka dot, that’s what my dad always said”
In her personal life, Mitchell is currently in a relationship with a man but doesn’t apply labels to her sexuality, instead advocating a fluid approach.
Talking to Cosmopolitan, she added.
I’m never going to label myself. I could be 50 and dating a woman and then what? I said I was straight and now I’m not?’”
The actress joins a number of high-profile individuals who have rejected categorising their sexuality such as Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart and St Vincent.
