Turns out she's been living an openly gay life with her partner and their two kids, but she'd never actually answered the 'are you or aren't you?' question until now.
Appearing on her new panel-style talk show, The Talk, the former child star 'came out' rather unceremoniously, admitting, “I don’t ever really think of things as out or in. I just think I am who I am, and when topics come up that are appropriate, I’ll talk about them and share when it seems right.”
“I’ve been acting my whole life, and I’ve never really discussed my personal life,” she continued. “This is a talk show, so obviously. I’m going to be discussing my life more.”
The first thing she revealed about her partner Alison? That she's taller and therefore has more luck finding clothes that look good!
