Washington: ‘Westworld’ star Tessa Thompson has revealed she is ‘attracted to men and also to women’.
In a recent interview, the 33-year-old spoke openly about her sexuality and her rumoured relationship with singer and actor Janelle Monae.
“I can take things for granted because of my family – it’s so free and you can be anything that you want to be. I’m attracted to men and also to women,” Thompson told Net-A-Porter, as reported by E! Online.
“If I bring a woman home, [or] a man, we don’t even have to have the discussion.”
“That was something I was conscientious of in terms of this declaration around Janelle and myself. I want everyone else to have that freedom and support that I have from my loved ones,” added the ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ star.
“But so many people don’t. So, do I have a responsibility to talk about that? Do I have a responsibility to say in a public space that this is my person?”
“We love each other deeply,” she said about her and Monae. “We’re so close, we vibrate on the same frequency. If people want to speculate about what we are, that’s okay. It doesn’t bother me.”
