Tatum O’Neal Dates Women, but Avoids ‘Bisexual’ Label

Tatum O’Neal, the youngest actress to win Best Supporting Actress, when she was only 10, says she is now dating women.

She doesn’t want to label herself bisexual, but this mother of three children who was married to tennis star John Mcenroe says she has been dating “mostly women” lately in an interview with People magazine.

The Paper Moon actresOB-WL158_0221wi_J_20130221162325s, now 51, says she has had affairs with women, but hasn’t found that “steady” partner yet, according to an interview she gave to the Washington Post. Her father is actor Ryan O’Neal.

“I like women,” she said. “I definitely have been dating mostly women recently. I think women are the most amazing creatures on earth. They’re gentle, and also more intelligent than the men that I’ve met recently. I don’t have a steady right now, but I look forward to it.” “I’m not one or the other,” she told People.
