Jennifer Tilly, A Lesbian Or Married To Her Husband?

Jennifer Tilly has made a name for herself with her on-screen lesbian roles. Tilly has played Tiffany in 'Cult Of Chucky' and her character has fallen in love with a woman named Nica. In this series, we can see they are having a love affair. 

But in real life, she shares in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, that the on-screen kiss with Gina Gershon on 'Bound' was her first-ever kiss with a woman. She said, "I had never kissed a girl before, onscreen or off. And I was a little bit nervous."

However, after their kiss, she admitted seeing her co-star Gena can be the girl she can be in a relationship with. She said, "This is a girl that I can really see being in a relationship with."

But her relationships with men kick the rumors out of the window and keep her as an on-screen lesbian. Despite her flawless portrayal of lesbian characters, she is not really a lesbian in real life. 

Those who are big fans of Tilly might know the fact that she was once married to Simpsons co-creator late Sam Simon. Sam and Tilly were married in 1984  and after several rows which are not made public, the pair got divorced in 1991 but were still close friends. 

Simon passed away tragically on March 8, 2015, due to Colorectal cancer, and his ex Tilly, as well as his then-girlfriend Kate Porter, made claims to his $100million fortune as Tilly received money from his projects as part of their divorce but in the end, he donated to charities and animal rights organizations.
