Los Angeles: Actress Evan Rachel Wood, who is expecting her first child with husband Jamie Bell, says she was nervous to share her bisexuality news with friends two years ago.
The 25-year-old `A Case of You` star said her family took her confession quite maturely, reported Us magazine.
"It`s become more socially acceptable. With me, the reason why I came out is because I felt like now was the time to no longer be silent about it," Wood shared.
"I wanted to wait for the right time and wait to have enough years under my belt where people knew that it wasn`t a phase or anything and I wasn`t doing it for attention; this is a part of who I am, and I`m old enough to really know who I am by now. And I had to wait until I told my family, too, which I was really nervous about! And I have a really chill, understanding family, too," she said.
Wood dated British actor Bell from 2005 to 2008, and then rekindled their romance in 2011. They married in October 2012.
"That`s the real test: If you can go away and come back," It just never went away. Sometimes, you break up with people and it goes away, but this only got worse. It felt like a fate thing ? this thing inside both of us that felt like we needed to be together."
