Top 10 Lesbian Celebrities You probably Didn’t Know Were Lesbians Some of them are bisexuals
It’s a true shame that some people have hidden their sexuality throughout their lives but it remains a sad reality. The statistics speak volumes as only 1.5 percent of women in the United States identify as lesbians and less than one percent say that they are bisexual. In all honesty, these numbers are probably even lower in the entertainment industry simply because of the pressures of being in the spotlight and, of course, being accepted.
10. Nelly Furtado
Furtado’s sexuality has been a hot topic of conversation for over a decade after her long-time relationship with Jasper Gahunia led to the birth of their daughter in 2003.
Blender magazine asked Furtado about her sexuality and if she was attracted to women, and she replied, “Absolutely. Women are beautiful and sexy.” While many thought she announced her bisexuality, Furtado backpedaled and married Demacio Castellon in 2008.
9. Drew Barrymore
In 2003 she told Contact Music that she always considered herself bisexual and that she used to “go with lots of women” in her younger days because “being with a woman is like exploring your own body, but through someone else.”
Despite her adoration for women, however, Barrymore married Will Kopelman in 2012. With their divorce in 2016 after giving birth to two daughters, we can’t help but hope Barrymore meets Ms. Right this time around!
8. Christina Aguilera
A self-proclaimed free spirit, Aguilera has been all over the place when it comes to talking about her sexuality and first turned heads with her sensual portrayal of gay people in her “Beautiful” music video.
Having said that “two women are way sexier than two men in bed” and that she loves experimenting with her sexuality, the 35-year-old doesn’t define herself as lesbian or bisexual.
7. Cara Delevingne
Openly bisexual, Delevingne announced her relationship with musician Annie Clark in 2015, which launched a media frenzy featuring dozens of photos of the couple plastered across England’s famed tabloids.
Of course, after dating Harry Styles and Michelle Rodriguez, Delevingne is accustomed to making headlines for her steamy romances.
6. Catherine McNeil
McNeil’s first public relationship was with Danish supermodel Freja Beha Erichsen. After the couple split in 2009, McNeil was spotted kissing the gorgeous Ruby Rose
McNeil and Rose were rumored to be engaged but the wedding was called off in 2010 long before wedding bells ever rang. Since then, McNeil briefly dated model Miles Langford before courting Emily Hope.
5. Tila Tequila
Tequila has been linked to romantically thanks, in part, to her bisexual-themed dating show that left men and women vying for her affection.
After the show’s end in 2008, Tequila dated socialite Courtenay Semel for a few months before turning her attention to NFL star Shawne Merriman.
4. Michelle Rodriguez
Named as one of the sexiest women in the world, Rodriguez has dated her fair share of A-listers including her Furious and S.W.A.T. co-stars, Vin Diesel and Olivier Martinez.
However, after a broken engagement and rumored relationships with women, Rodriguez finally told Cosmopolitan magazine in 2013 that she wasn’t gay.
3. Amber Heard
Having dated men for the majority of her life, Heard surprised the world in 2010 when she came out at the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation’s 25th Anniversary event.
Heard said, “I don’t label myself one way or another – I have had successful relationships with men and now a woman. I love who I love.”
2. Kristanna Loken
Loken told Curve magazine, “I’ve dated and have had sex with men and women, and have to say that the relationships I have had with certain women have been much more fulfilling.”
Despite rumors of romance with her BloodRayne costar Michelle Rodriguez, nothing was ever confirmed. Loken has bounced between dating men and women.
1. Ellen Page
Much like how Wanda Sykes came out, Page announced she was gay in front of a Las Vegas crowd gathered on Valentine’s Day in 2014 at the Time to Thrive conference for the Human Rights Campaign.
As an advocate for LGBT rights, Page has appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she has openly discussed her relationship and how good it feels to finally be happy.
