Actress and musician Julia Fox comes out as a lesbian

Julia Fox has publicly identified as a lesbian.

According to ‘Gay Times’, on July 8, the actress, musician, and author responded to comedian Emily Gracin’s TikTok video, where Gracin humorously remarks how she “loves seeing a lesbian with their boyfriend.”

“It’s like, ‘Aw, you hate that man,’” Gracin says, followed by Fox interjecting humorously and admitting, “Hey… That was me. I was that lesbian. So sorry, boys. Erm, won’t happen again.”

Between 2018 and 2020, Fox was married to private pilot Peter Artemiev. Together, they have a son, Valentino, born in 2021. She also dated American rapper Kanye West afterward.

Fox has been open about her sexuality in the past, telling Ziwe in 2022 that she has “some gay bone [in my body] and I need to explore that a bit more.”

“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 added.

Fox rose to fame in 2019 for her role in the crime thriller Uncut Gems, earning universal critical acclaim and a Gotham Award nomination for Breakthrough Actor.

She is set to appear next in the psychological thriller Presence with Lucy Liu and the crime drama Night Always Comes alongside Vanessa Kirby and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Last year, she released her memoir, Down the Drain, and her debut single of the same name.

In her cover story with Gay Times, Fox discussed her memoir, becoming a mother, and her duty as “a cis woman to empower and uplift trans voices.”

She emphasised the importance of helping people “understand that, trans, non-binary or queer, at the end of the day, we are all human.”

“It’s a cause that’s very near and dear to my heart,” she said, “my best friend in the world [Shazam] is a trans woman and I was by her side during the transition.”
