Mara Wilson believes bisexuals are represented wrongly


The openly bisexual Matilda star says that it is necessary to change the way the bi community is represented in media. The Matilda star opened up about LGBT representation on the comedy podcast, My Dad Wrote a Porno.The podcast is a series hosted by Jamie Morton, who reads out chapters from the erotic books that his 60-year-old father has written with his friends, James Cooper and Alice Levine. Mara Wilson was invited as a celebrity guest in one of the extra episodes. The star explained that she had been arguing for more “boring bisexual representation”, because bi people are represented either as villains or as the erotic fantasies of the most characters regardless of gender. She is bi and she does not belong to any of those groups. She is not trying to say that bi people cannot be villains, or supersexy, or supersexy villains, but it is definitely not everything they can be. Wilson, who is also known for her childhood roles in Mrs. Doubtfire and Miracle on 34th Street spoke about being cast in certain roles and drew differences between some of the other female actors she had gone head-to-head with for a part. Kristin Steward, Evan Rachel Wood and I all went out for each other’s parts. We all looked different but I looked back on it and I was like we all either grew up to be gay or bisexual. Casting directors know what they’re doing,” she said.
