Euphoria Star Barbie Ferreira Is ‘Gay as Hell’ and Thinks Kat Is, Too

‘Euphoria’s Barbie Ferreira Is ‘Gay as Hell’ and Thinks Kat Is, Too

Summer 2019 will be remembered for many important pop cultural moments: Megan Thee Stallion christening it “hot girl summer,” the Popeye’s chicken sandwich, the night I drank too much palinka in Budapest and yelled at a DJ who didn’t want to play “Into You” twice in a row. And of course, summer ‘19 also gave us Euphoria and, by extension, Barbie Ferreira.

Ferreira recently spoke with New York Times Fashion & Style, who followed her to a Hollywood Forever Cemetery screening of Jawbreaker, where she ran into co-star Hunter Schafer while wearing a “yellow bathrobe tie fashioned as a choker.” Queen of style confirmed! 

In the Times story, Ferreira spoke about how similar her own relationship to her body is to her character’s. “I also hated myself for so long, as a lot of young girls do, and then I just had to not fall into that trap and make a very conscious decision not to do it...I was like O.K., ‘The cat’s out of the bag. I’m fat,’” she said. She also spoke about her queerness, saying that in her “personal life I’ve been gay as hell.” The Times noted that Ferreira publicly came out as queer in an interview with Out earlier this summer. “I'm queer. In my private life, it's been going on for a long time,” she told Out at the time. “I obviously don't really identify as a straight woman ever in my life, but I feel like now I'm really in my queerness. I'm in L.A. living my L Word life. Isn't it amazing?”

Ferreira also told the Times that she hopes Euphoria will further expand her character Kat’s sexuality. “I think Kat’s a little queer, but that might be my perspective,” she said.She also hopes Kat makes some “bad decisions,” which seems inevitable on a show like Euphoria.

Elsewhere in the story, Ferreira had to excuse herself following a vape-related mishap. “Sorry...I’m choking on my Juul.” We will stan forever.
