More celebrities are talking openly about their gender and sexuality, and more stars than ever now support the LGBTQ+ community. And while some famous personalities may not be gay or trans themselves, they have parents who are. Read on to find out who. How does Sofía Vergara, the world’s highest-paid actress, spend her fortune? Mandy Moore Mandy Moore’s parents broke up after 30 years of marriage and her mother, Stacy Moore-Friedman, started a new life with her partner, tennis player Claudette Laliberte. The This Is Us star fully supports her mother’s relationship and her two openly gay brothers. She told the website Byrdie: “I’ve never really talked about this, but my parents are divorced. My mother left my father for a woman. And both of my two brothers are gay.” Robert De Niro Robert De Niro’s parents divorced when he was still a young boy and in 1944 De Niro Senior, a respected abstract expressionist painter, publicly admitted that he was gay. The Goodfellas actor revealed that he didn’t have a traditional relationship with his father growing up. He told Out magazine: “We were not the type of father and son who played baseball together, as you can surmise. But we had a connection.” The special relationship between the pair was made more evident by De Niro’s documentary Remembering the Artist: Robert De Niro, Senior , a testimony to his father’s life and art career, released back in 2013. Jennifer Grey Jennifer Grey’s Hollywood star father, Joel Grey, came out as gay when he was 82 years old after a lifetime spent in fear of his sexuality having grown up in Cleveland. The Dirty Dancing star has publicly said that she is proud of her dad, telling People magazine she felt happy he had come to a point in his life where he felt safe and comfortable enough to declare himself as a gay man. Is Jackson Theron the next Shiloh Jolie-Pitt? “Mostly because more people are free to own their true nature and can hopefully come closer to love and accept themselves as they really are, no matter what age, no matter how long it takes, to finally be free of the lies or half truths, it is freedom,” she said. Jay-Z Jay-Z’s mother, Gloria Carter, came out as a lesbian to her four children in 2017 after remaining silent about her sexuality for years. Carter recalled the moment at the GLAAD Media Awards: “My son cried and said, ‘It must have been horrible to live that way for so long’. My life wasn’t horrible. I chose to protect my family from ignorance. I was happy, but I was not free.” Jay-Z dedicated the song Smile to his mother as a way of showing his acceptance – it contains several lines referencing her struggle and was written the day after she came out to him. Amy Adams Meet Sarah McBride, the first openly transgender US state senator Amy Adams was born one of seven siblings to Mormon parents. However when the American Hustle actress was 11, her parents divorced and left the church. And Amy’s mother, Kathryn, moved in with another woman. Amy has admitted that her parents’ divorce affected her deeply at the time, but the actress appears to have no issue with her mother’s sexuality and Kathryn is still very much in her life. At the Oscars in 2014, Kathryn posted a photo on Facebook saying: “Sharing a proud evening with new friends. My lovely and talented daughter, Amy, looked beautiful.” Josephine Skriver Victoria’s Secret model Josephine Skriver grew up with two sets of gay parents. The Danish model revealed in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar what it was like growing up as an in vitro fertilisation baby with two lesbian mothers and two gay fathers. She even explained to Harper’s Bazaar how her mothers found her dads through an LGBTQ+ newsletter: “My mum put in an ad saying she was a lesbian mum seeking a gay dad to start a non-conventional family.”. Why F(x)’s Krystal Jung gained weight for her first lead movie role Jodie Foster Jodie Foster was brought up by two mothers after her birth mother, Evelyn, divorced her birth father. The Inside Man star and her siblings called her mum’s partner “Auntie Jo”. The actress later came out as gay herself in a memorable speech at the 2013 Golden Globes, albeit in a jokey way. “I guess I have a sudden urge to say something that I’ve never been able to air in public that I’m a little nervous about. But maybe not as nervous as my publicist,” Foster began, later gaining confidence and quipping that she “already did [her] coming out a thousand years ago, in the Stone Age.” Kendall and Kylie Jenner Kendall and Kylie’s mother Caitlyn Jenner, the former Olympic decathlete, transitioned in 2017 after divorcing Kris Jenner. Caitlyn’s coming out as a transgender woman was difficult for the Jenner sisters in the beginning. On the five-year anniversary of Caitlyn’s announcement, People magazine interviewed the sisters, and Kendall admitted her relationship with Caitlyn improved afterward. “When my dad came out as transgender, our relationship grew,” she said. “She could finally be honest with me. We could talk about deep emotions she was feeling through that time. Growing up, my dad was not usually one to talk about her feelings so that was a big step for us.” 10 pansexual celebrities starting conversations in Hollywood and music Jena Malone Jena Malone’s biological father left her mother when she fell pregnant with Jena, so The Hunger Games actress was brought up by her lesbian mother and her life partner instead. She says she didn’t have a relationship with her father until she was in her teens, but told The Daily Beast that she adored having two mums: “They were lovers. I had two mums and it was awesome. Double the pleasure! The more love you have as a child, the better.” 50 Cent The rapper grew up with his mother, Sabrina Jackson, who came out as gay while he was still young.
