List Rules A comprehensive list of female bisexual actresses.

While the movement for LGBT rights has picked up steam in recent years, gay and bisexual people are hardly a modern occurrence. So perhaps it's not surprising that a number of notable female stars identify as bisexual. Bisexual women in Hollywood have blazed trails for the LGBT community in a variety of ways. Some actresses who are bisexual are open about their relationships with men and women while other bisexual actresses never spoke about their same-sex affairs. Many of the most famous bisexual actresses were sex symbols for men and women alike.

Who will you find on this list of famous bisexual actresses? Lindsay Lohan identifies as straight despite the fact that she had a very public relationship with Samantha Ronson. "I know I’m straight. I have made out with girls before, and I had a relationship with a girl. But I think I needed to experience that and I think I was looking for something different," she has said.

"I don’t want to have to deny my sexuality in order to be me. But I don’t want to have to be defined by it," Amber Heard said of being bisexual. She was married to Johnny Depp from 2015-2016. Other famous women featured on this bisexual actresses list include Anna Paquin, Kristen Stewart, and Drew Barrymore.
