Matilda Star Mara Wilson Gets Candid About Her Sexuality And Queerness

She sheds light through a series of tweets

On Monday (June 13), former child actor Mara Wilson shared some personal details about her sexuality on Twitter. The Matilda star explained to her followers that she's "embraced the Bi/Queer label lately."

It all started after the mass shooting in Orlando that targeted LGBTQ people, when Wilson uploaded a photo of herself at a gay club.

  • She then reflected on her time there and how welcomed she felt by the gay community.
  • Soon after, she delved deeper into her own sexuality.
  • Wilson responded to a fan's question by measuring herself on the Kinsey Scale, which rates where people fall on a heterosexual and homosexual chart.

    (According to the Kinsey Scale, a 2 means someone is "Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual.")

  • And then she got right to the point.
  • Understandably, Wilson will continue keeping her relationships private, despite the news she's shared.
