Tessa Thompson appears as bisexual and talks about her relationship with her acting colleague Janelle Monae.
In an interview with Net-a-Porter on Friday, Thompson says, "I'm attracted to men and women too" and explains why she's silent about her relationship with Monae ( Moonlight ).
"We love each other deeply," says Thompson. "We're so close, we're vibrating on the same frequency, so if people want to speculate on who we are, that's okay, it does not bother me."
Thompson says her family accepts her sexual orientation very much ̵
However, she does know that not all are faced with such acceptance and therefore feel pressured to use their platform to speak and learn about their relationship. Thompson says that she and Monae are both "really private people and we both try to navigate as you try to have that privacy and space, as well as using your platform and influence."
