Actress and activist Maria Bello (ER, A History of Violence; The Cooler; Thank You for Smoking; Coyote Ugly) wrote one of the ten most popular New York Times articles of the decade. Her Modern Love column Coming Out as a Modern Family sparked a worldwide conversation about how many familiar labels (like gay, straight, bi) are simply outdated. She continues questioning those labels in her new memoir, Whatever…Love is Love, the response given by her 12-year-old son when she told him she had fallen in love with a woman. Bello discusses partnership, career, love, relationships, spirituality, sexual identity and more.
Bello’s story is an acknowledgment that for some, relationships can take many forms. It’s a different kind of coming out, one that recognizes that not everybody fits in one tidy box.
