Julia Fox is getting candid about her sexuality.


The actress came out as a lesbian in a response to a viral TikTok trend on Monday. In the original video, user @emgwaciedawgie says, “I love when I see a lesbian with their boyfriend. It’s like ‘Aww, you hate that man. You literally hate him.'”

Fox stitched the video with her response, admitting, “Hey, that was me. I was that lesbian. So sorry, boys. Won’t happen again.”

The original poster congratulated Fox in a comment, writing, “did i just facilitate julia fox coming out… ily queen.”

This isn’t the first time the Uncut Gems star — who was married to private pilot Peter Artemiev from 2018-20 and previously dated Kanye West — has opened up about her sexuality. Fox has a 3-year-old son, Valentino, with Artemiev.

During her 2022 appearance on Ziwe, she shared that she’d recently been considering dating women.

“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,” she shared.

Fox also shared earlier this year that she’s been celibate for over two and a half years — having previously admitted that she and West weren’t intimate during their brief relationship.

“I just think nothing good comes from having sex, including children. No, I’m just kidding,” the actress quipped during a Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen appearance back in May. “I think with the overturning of Roe v. Wade and our rights being stripped away from us, this is a way that I can take back the control. And it just sucks that it has to be in that way, but I just don’t feel comfortable until things change.”

Fox said she didn’t have end date in mind, noting that she surprised herself with her lengthy abstinence.

“It was six months and then it was a year and then I’m like, ‘Oh my god, it’s almost two and a half years and it’s still going,'” she added. 

When Cohen asked if she “missed” sex, she admitted, “No. In the beginning, yes, but I think it’s just like getting over anything, smoking, drugs, whatever it may be. Eventually you just forget and all that energy you were putting toward sex you can put toward other things.”
