Maria Bello Comes Out As Lesbian

The activist actress, who most recently starred in the Adam Sandler  Grown Ups  movies, made the revelation in a self-penned New York Times  article that focused on how she broke the news to her son.

“Mom, love is love, whatever you are,” she quotes 12-year-old Jack as saying, when she told him about her relationship with a woman she identifies only by her first name, Clare.

Bello and Jack both remain close to the boy’s father, and the new make-up of their family has them watching one very specific sitcom.

Jack, writes Bello, has them all hooked on Modern Family .
