Personal Quote:

The outing [when she announced that she was gay] really was quite a freeing experience. I know that sounds sort of clichéd, but it really was very liberating. That one thing, that one big secret is out. For a lot of people, it was just a confirmation of what they thought about me. I mean, I look like the girl next door, but I was always kind of off-center.

Openly lesbian since 1993, she lives in Atlanta with her adopted daughter Zoe. Her announcement in Advocate Magazine made big headlines as she became the first primetime actress to "come out.". See more »
