“I’m actually a pansexual, and I didn’t know that,” Thorne said.
To the former child star that means “You like what you like.”
“Doesn’t have to be a girl, or a guy, or … you know, a he, a she, a this, or that,” Thorne said. “It’s literally, you like personality, like you just like a being.”
A person who is pansexual is attracted to those of any gender. The dictionary defines the term as “not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.”
Thorne is not the first celebrity to go public as pansexual.
Thorne, who recently was in the news for tweeting nude photos of herself after a hacker threatened to do so, has been publicly linked over the years in several high-profile relationships with both men and women, including You Tube star Tana Mongeau.
“I like sexy girls, I like sexy guys,” she said. “I like sexy in general, you know?”
