In Hollywood where relationships and gossip run rampant, there is one aspect of life that celebrities are personal about for many reasons. The image a celebrity has often can be overshadowed with questions about their personal life, including who they may or may not be in a relationship with, especially if the celebrity is part of the LGBQT community.
When celebrities come out as gay, they are often questioned about their status. But for some individuals who come out as bisexual, there is that underlying assumption that if they eventually have a gay or straight relationship, then that bisexual classification is ignored.
For instance, in a recent interview with Larry King, he quizzed Anna Paquin on her bisexuality, especially as she is in a relationship with a man, husband Stephen Moyer.
He asked if she was a ”non-practicing bisexual,” to which the actress made the point that just because she’s married to a man didn’t negate her sexuality.
Paquin is not the only openly bisexual celebrity to make their feelings known about being seen for who they truly are in the world of Hollywood. TheCelebrityCafe.com is counting down the top ten celebrities who have come out as bisexual.
