Julianna Margulies Hints at Gay Experience

The ‘Good Wife’ actress tells fans not to assume she’s never had her own same-sex experience as she portrays an LGBTQ character in the new season of ‘The Morning Show’.

AceShowbizJulianna Margulies is happy to keep fans of hit Apple TV+ series “The Morning Show” guessing about her sexual past as she portrays an LGBTQ character.

The actress plays a gay TV reporter, who romances Reese Witherspoon‘s character on the show, and she urges anyone who might have a problem with the casting not to assume she’s never had a same-sex romance.

“Who’s to say I haven’t had my own gay experiences?” she tells Variety. “We’re making assumptions. I know there was some trepidation of ‘will lesbian actresses be angry?’ and I can tell you I would never, ever be angry if a lesbian played a straight woman.”

Julianna admits she jumped at the chance to play the role, opposite co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Witherspoon, adding, “In the second season, instead of bringing a man in to upset that balance, they brought in a woman. Hats off to that, because the truth is women are more afraid of women. They dress for women. We don’t dress for men. We dress for each other. We want to impress each other much more…”

“It made so much sense, and I thought, ‘Ah, a show that gets women! This is great.’ “

“(My character) is probably the only character on that show that has no hidden skeletons in her closet… I view her in the midst of all this chaos that’s going around and all these secrets people are trying to keep, it’s like all she has to do is stand still just to make a difference.”

“It’s almost like she’s the lens of the audience and the audience gets to watch these people absolutely spiralling down in front of your eyes but you sort of see it through Laura and Laura’s done all the work on herself to get completely comfortable with who she is in her sexuality to have gone back to field work in journalism and really earned her stripes the right way to get to where she is in her career, which is at the top.”
