Kerry Washington is so comfortable with her sexuality that she doesn’t mind the persistent lesbian rumors that have been circulating for some time now.
In a recent interview with The Advocate, the 36-year-old actress dismissed the reports and claimed she’s “never been bothered” by it.
“It’s interesting how much people long to fill in the gaps when someone in the public eye doesn’t share their personal life. I understand their frustration,” she said. “I like how people will post pictures of me with other women that I adore, hugging on red carpets, and say, ‘See?’ “
“But I’ve never been bothered by the lesbian rumor,” she added. “There’s nothing offensive about it, so there’s no reason to be offended.”
