The actress caused a firestorm back in January when she called being gay a choice. At the time she said, ““I’ve been straight and I’ve been gay, and gay is better. And they tried to get me to change it, because they said it implies that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice. I understand that for many people it’s not, but for me it’s a choice, and you don’t get to define my gayness for me."
Nixon, who is famous for her role as Miranda Hobbes in the HBO series, Sex and the City, has made appearances in The Big C and can be seen in World Without End.
