No labels, please! Younger’s Nico Tortorella revealed that he is sexually fluid in a new interview with Page Six.
“I’ve never been in any sort of closet … I was never really in the house,” the hunky actor, 27, told the outlet during an American Express Pride event with The Infatuation blog in New York City on Tuesday, June 21. “I think it’s one thing to hide … and it’s one thing to come out of the closet in a public statement.
“But I’ve always done me and never been shy …” he added, “and have been vocal about it.”
Tortorella, who is currently dating a woman, said that despite his past romances with females, he has embraced his attraction for both sexes. “It’s just a fluidity,” he shared with Page Six. “We’re all kind of moving into this one situation.”
The TV Land star’s remarks come after a number of other celebrities — including Miley Cyrus, Lily-Rose Depp and Nyle DiMarco, among others — have declared their sexual fluidity.
In January 2016, Tortorella, who dated Disney Channel alumna Sara Paxton from 2009 to 2012, opened up to Cosmopolitan about his progressive outlook on modern-day relationships.
“I think that an open relationship or a polyamorous relationship or an understanding of sorts is acceptable in this day and age,” he told the magazine. “Relationships and people are my hobby of sorts. I love exchanging energy with people and getting to know people and falling in and out of love.”
Although he’s open to experimenting in his love life, the Illinois native will not stand for unfaithfulness. “Cheating inherently is a terrible thing,” he expressed to Cosmo. “If you're going behind the other person's back and if there's any type of malice, you're a bad person, end of story.”
