Actress Auli’i Cravalho – who played the title character in Disney’s Moana – has come out as bisexual.
In a video posted to Tik Tok, Cravalho was playing to Eminem’s “Those Kinds Nights,” which includes lyrics that describe a conversation between the protagonist and a woman. The woman comes out as bi and, when the speaker says they’re “checking out the chick,” the woman responds, “So am I.”
Cravalho lipsynced only the woman’s words.

Her fans are living.
Wait you're telling me the one female voice actor I've ever had a crush on is in the LGBT community?! 😍
