Afternoon Delight: Sara Gilbert still “really scared” when publicly discussing her sexuality

Good afternoon and happy Friday the 13th! Are you afraid?

Happy birthday to Jean Smart, Jacqueline Bisset, Fiona Apple, Geri Jewell, Stella McCartney, Yvonne Doll and Erin Foley!

Yesterday, The Talk’s Sara Gilbert discussed her fear of coming out in Hollywood and telling her high school boyfriend, Roseanne co-star (Johnny Galecki) that she was gay. Gilbert tearfully exposed how she wants to live a “true life” even though she still struggles today. Gilbert said, “When I talk about my sexuality on the show or in public, I still feel really scared. I’ll try to act confident or make jokes of it. There’s still a piece of me that goes ‘what is this costing me in my career?’” I love that the audience gave Gilbert a standing ovation. Check out the video below.
