Since she has been linked to a few men, her perfect interpretation of the role has fueled speculation that she might be bisexual.

After her interview with Vanity Fair, the actress’s alleged bisexuality sparked a heated public debate. In a brief question-and-answer session with the magazine in February 2021, she sparked a flurry with her response to the question “What is the quality you most like in a man?”.
