Miley Cyrus is definitely one of Hollywood's outspoken stars!

In Variety magazine's Power of Women issue, Miley touched upon a TON of taboo and controversial subjects like her pansexuality, gender norms, and Woody Allen. No stone was left unturned, folks!

While we already knew Cyrus to be pansexual, in this convo she delved deeper into her early internal struggles and how her lack of gender plays a huge role in her identity today.

In one particuarly enlightening quote, the singer explained:

"I went to the LGBTQ center here in L.A., and I started hearing these stories. I saw one human in particular who didn't identify as male or female. Looking at them, they were both: beautiful and sexy and tough but vulnerable and feminine but masculine. And I related to that person more than I related to anyone in my life. Even though I may seem very different, people may not see me as neutral as I feel. But I feel very neutral. I think that was the first gender-neutral person I'd ever met. Once I understood my gender more, which was unassigned, then I understood my sexuality more. I was like, 'Oh—that's why I don't feel straight and I don't feel gay. It's because I'm not.'"

Interesting! We bet a lot of people can relate to the 23-year-old's sentiments.

According to authorities, Thaddeus — originally from Calcutta, India — passed away from a life-threatening injury he suffered in his car.

The actress became his legal guardian in 1994. Farrow — who is paraplegic from polio — is one of 10 children Mia adopted.

He was adopted shortly after the Rosemary Baby star's divorce from Woody Allen in 1992.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Thaddeus' family during this difficult time.

Miley Cyrus Praises Woody Allen As A Director — 'He's Never Fake'

Miley Cyrus praises Woody Allen.

Well, this is disappointing.

Despite all the allegations of sexual abuse against Woody Allen by his daughter Dylan Farrow, some celebs continue to work with the director.

Miley Cyrus is starring in Allen's first-ever TV series for Amazon called Crisis in Six Scenes, and she recently praised the 80-year-old in Vanity Fair, saying:

"What I love about Woody Allen is that he's never putting anything on. He's never fake and he's exactly who he is through and through. For me, I have the highest respect of anyone who is truly themselves. He even runs his set in a way that is truly him. He's super-resourceful and he's not over the top."

It's unnerving to hear the actress gush over someone who's been repeatedly accused of sexual misconduct. Earlier this year, Ronan Farrow, Dylan's brother, even wrote an essay slamming Hollywood stars who still choose to work with the director, because by doing so they were actively endorsing him and his earlier actions.

Miley herself is a vocal advocate against injustice, and recently said she wouldn't do red carpets anymore because there were so many bigger issues in the world.

How can she be critical of red carpets but not of a man who has repeatedly been accused of child molestation? It doesn't make any sense.

Though it's too late to back out of the series now, we hope the 23-year-old thinks about her actions going forward.

Woody Allen Says He's Tired Of Being 'Harassed' By Sexual Assault Allegations While Calling The Longtime Claims 'Tabloid Stupidity'

| Filed under: Woody AllenViolenceRonan FarrowControversy

Woody Allen

Woody Allen wishes to be removed from this narrative.

As you know, the director's estranged son Ronan Farrow released a poignant essay back in May on the alleged sexual abuse the Oscar-winner inflicted upon his sister, Dylan Farrow. Allen responded shortly after by saying he has "so moved on" and he "never thinks about it." Hmm.

In a new interview with The Guardian, the 80-year-old reiterated the point that he doesn't want to be bothered with the allegations that have been following him for years.

Who's Controversial? Blake Lively Just Doesn't Have Enough Good Things To Say About Working With 'Empowering' Woody Allen

| Filed under: Film FlickersSteve CarellBlake LivelyParker PoseyJesse EisenbergWoody AllenControversy

Blake Lively and Woody Allen

We're assuming Woody Allen's PR team is on cloud nine as the lovable Blake Lively continues to sing the controversial director's praises time and time again!

Speaking with Hamptons magazine this week, the 28-year-old gushed (again) about working with the "empowering" movie maker, who has been plagued with sexual assault allegations, while filming the upcoming 1930s drama Café Society.

Miz Lively shared:

"[Woody] creates a very pleasant set where everybody's just happy to be there and happy to be making a movie, and happy to be a part of film history. For him to have that confidence in you almost gives you the confidence in yourself to just go with the flow. And those are the moments that he really likes, the found moments, the moments that aren't written but just happen."

adrien brody defends woody allen roman polanski

Cannes was certainly not drama free this year as a rape joke at the opening ceremony and a letter penned by Ronan Farrow thrust the allegations of sexual assault against Roman Polanski and Woody Allen back into the headlines.

As a result, several actors who've worked with Allen have since been asked about the separate controversies. On Monday, Adrien Brody addressed the topic on Jenny McCarthy's radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny, and suggested that an artist's personal life should be separated from their body of work. Oh no.
