Sex and the City actress clarified her previous comments which made people suggest she ‘chose to be bisexual’. Although, the actress insisted her bisexuality was (and is) a fact, and by the choice she had made she meant only choosing a partner, who happened to be female. She said it to herself and about herself, without meaning to cause controversy in the rainbow community. And the word ‘bisexual’ was not a part of her vocabulary,
so that she never considered herself bi. She told Huffington Postthat “people were so insistent that I pick a ― you know, it caused a huge controversy and everyone wanted to graft on to me this narrative ― [that] I felt that I had just simply been mistaken about myself for all these years and finally the veil was lifted and I was a lesbian. And that was not true.” Of A Quiet Passion, the biopic about Emily Dickinson, Nixon goes on to say that she thinks the lead character which she plays could also have same-sex romances, but it is too hard to tell something exactly 150 years later.
