Washington: Evan Rachel Wood has admitted that she was scared to tell her family that she is bisexual, but they were understanding.

In a new interview with The Daily Beast, Wood said that bisexuality has become more socially acceptable, but with her, the reason why she came out was because she felt like now was the time to no longer be silent about it.

The 25-year-old, who is now married to Jamie Bell and pregnant with their first child, said she wanted to wait for the right time and wait to have enough years under her belt where people knew that it wasn`t a phase or anything and she wasn`t doing it for attention.

She insisted this is a part of who she is, and she`s old enough to really know who she is by now.

The actress added that she had to wait until she told her family, too.
