Kate Winslet’s response to her 7-year-old saying he might be gay is amazing!

Kate Winslet’s reaction to her son Joe asking whether she would prefer if he was gay or straight, is quite something.

In an interview with V Magazine, the Grammy and Golden Globe winning actress said she was told by her son that one day he “might have a boyfriend”, or a girlfriend.

When asked which she would prefer, she responded amazingly.

She said: “It doesn’t make any difference to me.”

In her full response, Winslet said: “I like the diversity that my children are exposed to every day. I love the way their brains work. Joe turns to me the other day and says, ‘One day, I will have a girlfriend. But I might have a boyfriend. If I’m gay.’ He’s 7!

“And I said, ‘You might have a girlfriend or a boyfriend, darling.’ And he said, ‘Which would you prefer?’ And I said, ‘My love, that would be entirely up to you, and it doesn’t make any difference to me.’ But that he knows! It’s a real privilege. Talk about the best education.”

The ‘Titanic’ actress is not the only Hollywood parent to be fully accepting of their possibly LGBT child.

Angelina Jolie told Vanity Fair in an interview last year that her child John had been exploring their identity since the age of three.


“She wants to be a boy… So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers,” said Angelina.

Brad and Angelina have since been heavily praised for allowing John to explore their gender identity.

In December 2014, the Jolie-Pitt family announced their support for the eight-year-old to self-identify.
