Cate Blanchett revealed she’s had romantic relationships with women. The actress, who is married to filmmaker Andrew Upton and is a mother of four, opened up about her sexuality in a new interview with Variety, saying she’s dated women “many times.”

While discussing her new film Carol, in which her and Rooney Mara’s characters fall in love, Blanchett was asked if it was her “first turn as a lesbian.” The actress coyly responded, “On film or in real life?” She then admitted to having female relationships, but decided not to elaborate.”Yes. Many times,” said Blanchett, noting that she would rather not slap a label on her sexuality. “I never thought about it,” she added.

Blanchett is not the only Hollywood actress who wants to steer clear of labeling her sexuality. As Gossip Cop reported last week, while promoting her Happy Hippie Foundation, Miley Cyrus revealed that not all of her past relationships have been “straight, heterosexual” ones. She said, “I feel completely like I’m not tied to a gender or an age.” When asked by a fan on Facebook to elaborate, Cyrus wrote, “I never want to label myself! I am ready to love anyone that loves me for who I am! I am open.” What do you think about Cate Blanchett’s revelation that she’s had lesbian relationships?
