In a first-person editorial published in the New York Times, Maria Bello explains and explores her search for love, while revealing a same-sex relationship.
The 46-year-old actress titled the piece "Coming Out as a Modern Family," and says the impetus was her son Jackson, 12, asking about "romantic stuff."
Maria revealed that she'd fallen in love with two men while working on films with them, "only to find that when the filming ended, so did the relationship."
In looking back at her old journals, she "read about the man who asked me to marry him four years ago over the phone, before we had even kissed."
Three months later, she recalls, "we were in his kitchen throwing steaks at each other's heads in anger." A harbinger of things to come, no doubt.
