Let's deal deeply with this topic. Just stay with us.
The off-screen sexuality of Taylor Schilling was a subject of scrutiny for the last few years. In this regards, on 9th June, at the premiere of the 5th season of Orange is the New Black, the blonde beauty spoke about how she saw her sexuality. She said:
I’ve had very serious relationships with lots of people, and I’m a very expansive human. There’s no part of me that can be put under a label. I really don’t fit into a box – that’s too reductive.
Taylor also further said in the same interview with the Evening Standard Magazine,
I’m working all the time – I don’t really have anything else going on. But I’ve had wonderful relationships. I’ve had a lot of love, and I don’t have any qualms about where it comes from.CAPTION: Gorgeous actress Taylor SchillingSOURCE: Daily Mail
The 34 years' old Taylor Schilling talking about the show which deals with the LGBTQ issues said she was delighted with how much progress was made with LGBT issues when Litchfield Prison sprang fully formed into our consciousnesses in 2013. She said:
Oh, in the first season, all people wanted to talk about was what it was like to kiss a girl.
Furthermore, Schilling also remembered that at first, she wouldn't reply to their questions and later, people became less attentive about the same-sex relationships.
Now, if someone asks me that, there’s complete understanding if I say: ‘I’m not going to answer that question.’
The difference now was that people have stopped caring as much about same-sex relationships.
In addition, Taylor Schilling also said that there is no connection between her and her character in the show. She stated;
The things that are happening in this show, and to Piper, are not about the gender of the person she’s sleeping with. And that’s only four years.
I do feel that things have changed – the world has become a little more Orange.
