Olivia Thirlby is an actress who does things on her own terms. She takes roles she believes in and supports causes that are close to her heart. That’s why she is a participant in iO Tillett Wright‘s Self-Evident Truths Project. In a new interview with Brooklyn Magazine (with photos shot by iO), Olivia shares why she decided to be a part of a civil rights photography project that focuses on people who are “anything but 100 percent straight.”
Olivia told the magazine:
Though Olivia has not ever been closeted, this is the first time she’s spoken about her bisexuality publicly. Olivia played Ellen Page‘s BFF in Juno and was initially set to star in the lesbian-themed werewolf film Jack & Diane with her before it took too long to become financed. Currently, Olivia is starring in the new film, The Darkest Hour and has lent her voice to the MTV animated series Good Vibes.
