Julianna Margulies hints she’s had ‘gay experiences’ in new interview
|Julianna Margulies is hinting she's had same-sex experiences off-screen. She is pictured in the new season of "The Morning Show."
Julianna Margulies is hinting she’s had several same-sex dalliances.
The 55-year-old actress — who has been married to her lawyer husband Keith Lieberthal, 44, since 2007 — dropped the hint on Wednesday while discussing her new role as a lesbian news anchor on “The Morning Show.”
Margulies was asked by the “Just For Variety” podcast about playing a gay character on the Apple+ series when she identifies as heterosexual in real life.
She cryptically responded: “Who’s to say I haven’t had my own gay experiences? We’re making assumptions.”
The veteran actress didn’t divulge any further details and instead turned her attention to talking about “The Morning Show” cast, which includes Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.
The podcast comment marks the first time Margulies has spoken about any possible same-sex encounters.
The actress was in a long-term relationship with actor Ron Eldard from 1991 until 2003. A short time later she met Lieberthal — the son of famed academic Kenneth Lieberthal — whom she wed in 2007. The couple share one son, Kieran, who was born in 2008.
But while she may have kept any same-sex romances out of the public eye, “The Morning Show” marks the second time Margulies has played a lesbian character on-screen.
Back in 2000, she starred as Kyra Sedgwick’s lover, Carla, in the comedy-drama “What’s Cooking?”
