Julia Fox may have come out earlier this week.

On Monday, the actor and author — known as much for her signature eye makeup, avant garde style, headline-making 2022 relationship with Ye (formerly Kanye West), as for her breakthrough role in the 2019 film Uncut Gems — posted a video on TikTok in which she seemed to identify as a lesbian. The clip stitched together a viral post from user @emgwaciedawgie with video of Fox’s own response.

“I love when I see a lesbian with their boyfriend. It’s like, awww, you hate that man. You literally hate him,” @emgwaciedawgie said in the original clip.

Fox’s post then cuts to self-recorded footage of the actress walking down the street. “Hey, that was me,” she says. “I was that lesbian. So sorry, boys. Um… Won’t happen again.”

Fox has seemingly been off boys for a while now. In May, she posted a comment on a TikTok video claiming that she has been celibate for two and a half years and has “never been better [to be honest].”

She has also previously hinted that she might be queer, telling comedian and talk show host Ziwe in 2022 that she was thinking about dating women.

“I do think… I have a gay bone and I need to explore that a little bit more,” she explained. “Like, maybe my ex-boyfriends weren’t wrong when they were calling me a lesbian and complaining that I never wanted to have sex with them.”

Fox, of course, is no stranger to the LGBTQ+ community. She co-hosted the E! fashion reality competition show OMG Fashun!, which has she’s compared to RuPaul’s Drag Race and Project Runway, with out “image architect” Law Roach. She also recently guest starred on queer comedy auteur Julio Torres’s HBO series Fantasmas.

Fox was also an executive producer on director Luis de Filippis’s debut feature, Something You Said Last Night. The Canadian-Italian filmmaker described the 2023 comedy, starring transgender actress Carmen Madonia, as made “for the dolls by the dolls,” with a crew that was 30% to 40% trans.
