In an interview with Net-A-Porter, actress Tessa Thompson said she is attracted to men and women but didn't want to be given a specific label.

“I’m attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, [or] a man, we don’t even have to have the discussion,” she said.

The actress spoke about her sexuality in response to rumors on a possible relationship with her partner in "Thor: Ragnarok", Janelle Monáe.

Note that she didn't confirm or deny this relationship.

She said: “We love each other deeply, we’re so close. We vibrate on the same frequency. If people want to speculate about what we are, that’s okay. It doesn’t bother me.”

Thompson also makes herself perfectly clear via Twitter: "Sometimes we cheer so loudly at someone speaking their truth, that we miss what they say. (Here’s looking at you media journalism). I didn’t say I was in a relationship. But I said lots of other things. All below. One thing I missed — Pride Has No End. x"

She added that she knows that new rumors will be spread following her coming out.

Tessa Thompson is playing in "Sorry To Bother You".

Cool to see one more queer woman out!
