“So I eventually told him that I thought it was about my sexuality and he was super sweet about it."Sounds like a great friend—even if they didn’t work out romantically.
Sara added that, “"No one knew at the show ,and Johnny held the secret the whole time.
“I started dating a woman who was like 18 years older than I was, who was also in the public eye, and it was something that people could have found out about,” she said. ” Obviously with her major acting success and career, it all worked out for the best — but didn’t know it at the time. “And beyond that, I guess I just want people to know that we do often say things like ‘it gets better’ — and it does get better. But I want people to know that there can still be a struggle with it, and that’s okay. There can be a part of you that doesn’t want to be different or feel scared.
“No one knew at the show for years, and Johnny held the secret the whole time, and I just felt like always so scared that if it came out, what could happen. And that is maybe more important than any of it.” We’re so happy that Sara is comfortable enough to share this amazing message!
