“You know, in terms of portraying a lesbian on the show, I am a huge supporter of the LGBT community. I’m going to the GLAAD Awards in a few weeks. I went to the human rights campaign. I flew up to San Francisco and did this whole thing and I won this award [for] being a straight woman portraying a gay woman on camera. I’m a total supporter of the LGBT and they are an amazing fan base.”

She also says she’s not dating Tom Cruise.

In the realm of nonbiological parents, nonbiological lesbian mothers are often in a unique situation where their partners give birth to the baby and they can be left to struggle for their role in the family, both legally in places where parental rights for gay couples are hard to come by, and socially, when they don’t have pregnancy as a visual cue that they, too, are becoming mothers.
