Last year, Jussie Smollett came out on the Ellen Show and said he was indeed gay. OUT magazine has recently did a interview with Smollett and he opens up about his sexuality even more than before. He even talked about how he has not ruled out being with a woman yet.

Smollett starts off by telling the magazine,

“I am a gay man with an extremely open heart. God, I’ve never had to talk about this, so I’m trying to find the words. If I had to label myself, I would label myself as a gay man.”

He says when it comes down to love he always tries to be open minded.

“I would hope that people would not close themselves off from what could be if, lo and behold, you meet somebody that just sweeps you off your feet, and you just can’t do anything about it. If we truly believe that we are born this way, then why do we try to stifle the way we were born? If I fall in love down the road with a woman, I’m going to love that woman.”

Although Smollett says that he has not just crossed out being with a woman, he is still a gay man. He is just being open to the thought.

“You’re not going to tell me that loving someone is wrong. That does not mean that heterosexuality is not very real. It does not mean that bisexuality is not very real. It does not mean that homosexuality is not very real. They are all very real, But what I’m saying is, I am a gay man. I am a gay man. I am a gay man. I don’t know how many times I have to say that.”

Smollett says that Ellen DeGeneres and Taraji P. Henson were very important figures when it came to him coming out of the closet. He recalled Taraji saying,

“‘Who gives a f**k? I don’t tell these motherf**kers that I’m straight. Why the f**k do you have to tell them that you’re gay?'”
