There Was Almost a Gay Character in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

There Was Almost a Gay Character in 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom'

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is actually a very entertaining summer movie, which I can attest to because I saw it two weeks ago at a screening where there were people dressed up in dinosaur suits (one of them whispered to me "It's very hot in here.") But while it's packed full of action, comedy and Chris Pratt's handsome face, there's one thing missing: an explicitly gay character. And according to actress Daniella Pineda, there almost was one.

In an interview with Build, Pineda revealed that there was originally a scene in which her character said she was gay. “It’s me and Chris Pratt and we are in a military vehicle with all of these mercenaries," explained the actress. "I look at Chris and am like, ‘Yeah. Square jaw. Good bone structure. Tall. Muscles. I don’t date men, but if I did, it would be you. It would gross me out, but I would do it.’ It was cool, because it was a little insight into my character. But it was cut.”
