Mara Wilson Opened Up About Her Sexuality On Twitter After The Orlando Attacks

Mara

Mara Wilson, we love you. We loved you as the bookworm with the terrible parents in Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire back in the day (and on Broad City), and we love you for your tweets that put trolls in their place now. We especially love you for your recent string of tweets in paying tribute to the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting.

She also gave herself the label of Bi/Queer, something she didn’t used to identify as:

In the end, Wilson just wants privacy in her relationships:

But her desire for privacy didn’t keep her from opening up about a very personal issue. Wilson’s Twitter followers flooded her tweets with overwhelmingly positive messages in support of her revelation. “Your fans will support you in just the same way that you have supported us through your work in our darkest moments,” one wrote, while another added, “As the kids say these days, #LoveIsLove.”

When she’s not writing fabulous tweets, Wilson works on her own novels. Her first book, Where Am I Now? is currently available for pre-order, and will be hitting shelves later this year.
