The Academy Award–nominated actress caused a sensation earlier this year when she publicly addressed her sexuality at a Human Rights Campaign conference, after years of rumors. The impact of a leading lady in Hollywood making such a bold move is still being felt.
Next up: She’ll star in Bryan Singer’s summer blockbuster, X-Men: Days of Future Past. This spring she is producing and starring in Into The Forest (opposite Evan Rachel Wood). She is also attached to star and produce Freeheld (opposite Julianne Moore) this fall, as well as the lead in Fox's Queen and Country.
