Jena Malone interpretive

Actor Jena Malone has come out with a moving interpretative dance “honouring” pansexuality, sapiosexuality and polyamory.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star gave an insight into her sexuality in an Instagram post to her 300,000 followers on Saturday (20 August).

“I guess it felt like I was a heterosexual man in a woman’s body,” Jena Malone wrote.

“I visualized his desires and placed them on to me. But this, was never the whole of the story that was meant for me. So I’ve been learning a new way to tell it. Using words to guide me not define me.

“That my sexual identity has more to teach and to tell me. Finding words that feel more right to explore in my telling. Pansexuality. Sapiosexuality. Polyamory.

“A fuller spectrum of understanding that my story is demanding of me. And I’m honoring it today with this soft and sleepy little stretch of a dance. I love humans. So there’s that ❤️❤️?️‍??️‍?❤️❤️.”

In conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, Malone, 37, opened up about the video and delved deeper into her “sexual journey”.

“The sexual journey is so beautiful. I mean, all of the identity journeys are so cool,” she said. “I feel like I’m a little bit late to the game in being able to have less shame.”

She added: “I’ve been loving the process of learning more about myself and others through different terms that open windows, those windows then turn into doors and then I arrive at a place to find all this cool stuff out there.”

She told the publication she enjoyed “celebrating” her coming out and said: “It’s a really sweet, human experience. I love getting to learn more about myself no matter the age or my experience.”

Malone also expressed gratitude at the overwhelming support she received from her followers and most importantly her family.

“I have a really supportive family and they’ve been that way for whatever, however or whoever I am or what I bring to the table. It’s all exciting and wonderful and perfectly great. But yeah, my sister is queer and I grew up with two moms who were lovers and then they split. My mom sort of became hetero again, mostly through an understanding of Christianity.

“And then my god mom married her partner of 17 years now. So, I have three moms and my dad who has been a hetero man all his life. I have the whole spectrum. It’s nice to be able to have these different types of conversations with everyone. I feel really blessed to have an accepting family.”

Malone is set to star in Adopting Audrey, directed by Zach Snyder.
