“I like women,” O’Neal tells People. “I definitely have been dating mostly women recently.” Of her sexuality, she says, “I’m not one or the other.”
Two out New York’s three dailies have been quick to pick up on this portion of the interview. The Times coincidentally just published a “Table for Three” column for which the invited lunch guests were O’Neal and son Kevin McEnroe, author of the new novel Our Town.
Bravo to O’Neal for reminding that, on the A list and beyond, sexuality and adult personal choices are a mellifluous tandem. While Blanchett subsequently denied her affirmation to Variety that she has had “many” intimate relationships with women, it’s all fodder for a new world media order, isn’t it?
