As we know, when you become a celebrity you basically sign up to have your life exposed to the public in anyway possible – right?! And that unfortunately includes their personal lives.
So why the fascination? Well because the details about their lives can make for quite a juicy read. And sometimes their personal lives are even more interesting than their on-screen performances!
Check out these 10 celebrities who openly admitted to lesbian affairs, well, after the paparazzi had caught them a few times!
1. Gillian Anderson
Gillian Anderson told Out Magazine that she had a relationship with a girl throughout high school! But she is more comfortable calling herself a bisexual, or perhaps using no label, because her subsequent relationships have been with dudes. She also says because she knew she was attracted to men, so she didn’t feel especially stigmatised.
If I had thought I was 100% gay, would it have been a different experience for me? Would it have been a bigger deal if shame had been attached to it and all those things that become huge life-altering issues for youngsters in that situation? It’s possible that my attitude around it came, on some level, from knowing that I still liked boys.”
She also added in Out
I don’t think I’ve ever followed convention by choice. By default, maybe, but not by choice.” Call yourself whatever you want, Gillian — we are girl crushing so hard.
2. Courtney Love
Leave it to Courtney Love to over share about everything, including her lesbian fling.
It was Kate Moss. She doesn’t care. It’s a great story for the grandchildren so … yeah. Kate wasn’t doing a lot of drugs. It was just a thing that happened in Milan in the ‘90s.
It happened and it was fun and whatever. And she talks about it and so I hope she doesn’t get mad that I outed her about it … I feel like such a kiss and tell … Kate’s great, though! Kate’s a good friend of mine.”
3. Megan Fox
Megan Fox is not a lesbian, according to Megan Fox. She’s just really, really attracted to women. She opened up about her love for the ladies in an infamous GQ interview.
I decided that I was in love with this girl that worked at the Body Shop. I decided that I was going to get her to love me back, and I went out of my way to create a relationship with this girl, a stripper named Nikita … Look, I’m not a lesbian. I just think that all humans are born with the ability to be attracted to both sexes … I mean, I could see myself in a relationship with a girl—Olivia Wilde is so sexy she makes me want to strangle a mountain ox with my bare hands. She’s mesmerising. And lately I’ve been obsessed with Jenna Jameson.”
4. Hayden Panettiere
Growing up, Hayden Panettiere admitted to practicing her make out moves on her girlfriends.
It’s great to be single. It’s great to have boyfriends. Or girlfriends. There are occasions when you kiss your best friend growing up, having fun and goofing about. Like perfecting your technique.”
5. Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie has ben open about her sexuality for quite some time, having had numerous encounters and relationships with women, including model and actress Jenny Shimizu.
I have loved women in the past and slept with them. I think if you love and want to pleasure a woman, particularly if you are a woman yourself, then certainly you know how to do things a certain way.”
On her relationship with Shimizu, she said
I probably would have married Jenny Shimizu if I hadn’t married [Jonny Lee Miller]. I fell in love with her the first second I saw her … she’s great. We had a lot of fun.”
6. Anna Paquin
Anna Paquin is adamantly open about her bisexuality. The actress told “Zooey” magazine in a 2009 interview…
For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It’s not made up. It’s not a lack of decision.”
7. Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore originally came out in an interview in Contact Magazine in 2003, saying…
Do I like women sexually? Yeah, I do. Totally. I have always considered myself bisexual… I love a woman’s body. I think a woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful. Being with a woman is like exploring your own body, but through someone else.”
In a bold early 2013 interview, pop star Kesha opened up about her sexuality to reporters, saying that she is not only attracted to men.
I don’t love just men,” said the singer. “I love people. It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.”
She also made a similar claim two years earlier to “Out” magazine: “I wouldn’t say I’m gay or straight -– I don’t like labelling things anyway. I just like people.”
9. Amber Rose
Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend has long been perceived to be openly bisexual without actually addressing the way she identifies. In an interview with Complex magazine, the model sought to clarify the rumors:
They label me a bisexual freak stripper that fucks Kanye on a daily basis. To answer that: I’m extremely open with my sexuality. I can be in love with a woman; I can be in love with a man. I’m not into bestiality, but as far as humans go, I definitely find beauty in everybody, whether they’re heavy-set, super-skinny, if they’re white, black, Indian, Asian, Spanish. I can see beauty in anybody. I’m not into threesomes or orgies and shit like that. If I see a women and I think she’s beautiful and I like her, and she likes me back we can definitely try to be in a relationship together.”
On her lesbian liaisons, Fergie said
I have had lesbian experiences in the past. But I started having sex quite late on—after I was 18. I was raised a good Catholic girl”
11. Geri Halliwell
I guess Geri Halliwell was looking to spice up her [love] life because she also fessed up to Howard Stern that she once had sex with a woman.
I had a little lesbian thing but I’m not saying anything about it. And I don’t think the girl was a real lesbian. I’m being honest. I’m not going to describe it. I realized pretty quickly that I was not a lesbian … I don’t mind boobs but the other bit is not my cup of tea. I could never ever say who it was. It was just one of those moments. I think it is just part of experimenting. It was just a drunken moment.”
Her mystery lesbian hookup probably felt like crap after reading this.
