Hunger Games star Amandla came out as bisexual via a series of Snaps back in 2016.

On the subject of minorities being “silenced” she said: “As someone who identifies as a black bisexual woman I’ve been through it, and it hurts and it’s awkward and it’s uncomfortable.”

Stenberg made her film debut in 2011 in the film Colombiana before landing the role of Roo in the mega hit Hunger Games series staring alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.

5. Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has spoken about her bisexuality for a long time.

Speaking to Jane magazine, the readers of which said she was the most attractive star, she said: “They’re right to think that about me because I’m the person most likely to sleep with my female fans. I genuinely love other women. And I think they know that.”

Back in 2014, Jolie, then married to Brad Pitt announced her support for their ten-year-old to self-identify as male.

The former couple were criticised in 2012 after they gave up waiting for marriage equality to marry, despite previously promising they would hold off.

6. Gillian Anderson

As well as helping Kate McKinnon to realise her own sexual orientation, Gillian Anderson has also had relationships with women.

Back in 2014, years after revealing she had relationships with women, she said she owed it to a late female partner not to keep their relationship a secret.

Anderson was unrecognisable in a still from TV series American Gods, in which she’s playing David Bowie.
