rosie perez talks sexuality


On Monday, Rosie Perez discussed her own “questioning” as a teen.

She shared:

“Every human being, whether they want to admit it or not, went through a period of questioning. I know I did.”

Whoa! The View host then elaborated that she felt sexual attraction for a fellow student, named Michelle, when she was just in junior high.

She continued:

“And I suppressed the urge and suppressed the urge and suppressed the urge until Michelle one day started humping on me.”

LOLz!! Talk about raging teenage hormones.

Perez is currently married to artist, Eric Haze. Nonetheless, the actress was vehement that it’s ok to go through a questioning period.

She relayed:

“I’m not the only one that went through this questioning period. I’m not the only one that suppressed those feelings. Who hid their story.

I know I’m not lesbian, gay or whatever, I’m a quasi-straight person, I still went through that period. And I thought I was all alone.”

Wow! You go girl!

But whatever happened to Michelle?!

The brunette beauty shared that when her relationship with her peer ended — so did their friendship.


Perez’s revelation is following a slate of other A-Listers who, in the last few years, have publicly discussed their sexual orientation — including Miley Cyrus, Amber Heard, and Michelle Rodriguez.

The 50-year-old is leaving us all with a few reminders that being different is the norm and that you should just be yourself. And we agree!
