We have a saying here at Moviepilot, and it's "sexuality is fluid!" It appears as if our generation is done with the labels and are more about just living life how we want to do it, even if it challenges typical societal views.
Below is a list of six celebrities who aren't afraid to go against the grain and live life the way they want. And this inspires us to be who we really are and love who we want to love, regardless of society's views of sexuality.
1. Kristen Stewart
“If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it. But I am an actress, man. I live in the fucking ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job. Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving…I don’t. I’m just a kid making movies."
"I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don’t think it’s necessary to figure out if you’re gay or straight. It’s like, just do your thing.”
2. Miley Cyrus
‘I’m very open about it – I’m pansexual. But I’m not in a relationship. I’m 22, I’m going on dates, but I change my style every two weeks, let alone who I’m with.’

3. Tom Hardy
"As a boy? Of course I have. I’m an actor for fuck’s sake. I’m an artist. I’ve played with everything and everyone. But I’m not into men sexually. I love the form and the physicality but the gay sex bit does nothing for me. In the same way as a wet vagina would turn someone else into a lemon-sucking freak. To me it just doesn’t compute now I’m into my 30s and it doesn’t do it for me and I’m done experimenting."
4. Cara Delevingne
"My sexuality is not a phase."
"I am who I am."
"It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it."
5. Ezra Miller
"It’s generational in the way that that term is newly available in a certain way. I think it feels the most open and inclusive and that’s what makes it apply for me, personally. I think there are a lot of people who fall on this open spectrum of sexuality. My friends and I use that word as an all-encompassing banner and for every human being. There should be an ongoing question and investigation of who you love and everything that’s involved with that very tricky and beautiful thing."

6. Anna Paquin
"My sexuality is something I'm completely comfortable with and open about. There's a lot of prejudice toward us but the more people talk about it, the less of a big deal it will be. And that will be better for everyone."

They might not mean to be role models, but I know many people who personally look up to this phenomenal group of actors who live life the way they wish to.
Whether they identify as gay, bi, pan, or want to live with no labels, they inspire us to be fearless when it comes to defying society's expectations on sexuality.
