Linda Hamilton: I Haven't Boned in 15 Years and That's Just Fine!

by at .

Linda Hamilton is an absolute legend.

This month, she will turn 63, but she is returning to the big screen to reprise her iconic role as Sarah Conner in Terminator: Dark Fate.

But she has no revealed something very surprising: she has not had sex in 15 years.

Linda Hamilton sat down with The New York Times for an interview about returning to the film industry -- and what her life has been like.

And she dropped a bombshell that startled fans. This is not what you expect from a gorgeous, rich celebrity actress.

"I’ve been celibate for at least 15 years," Linda reveals.

"One loses track," she says. "Because it just doesn’t matter."

"Or at least," Linda adds. "It doesn’t matter to me."

Linda doesn't want people getting the wrong idea -- she lives a very fulfilling life.

"I have a very romantic relationship with my world every day," Linda affirms.

"And," she adds, with "the people who are in it."

In other words, she can have meaningful relationships and experience happiness and contentment.

She doesn't need somebody blowing her back out to do that.

James Cameron is Linda's ex-husband, so the idea of going back to work with him was probably already awkward enough.

Add to that that Linda was reluctant to return to Hollywood at all, and you can understand why she spent so long mulling it over.

She reveals that it was about six weeks between when the offer was extended and when she agreed to sign on.

"I woke up one day and I was like, 'Well, here I am in my beautiful mansion and my kids aren’t here, my agents aren’t calling, and this is not real,” Linda recalls.

She explains: “I love my alone time like no one you’ve ever met."

First of all, Linda's line about loving her alone time is incredibly relatable.

That's right up there with Whoopi Goldberg's famous explanation for not getting married: "I don't want somebody in my house."

It's important to remember that not everyone is motivated by the same desires.

Some people are asexual and may only have sex with those whom they love, if at all. Some people see food as an act of refueling, nothing more.

And of course, some people simply lose whatever sex drive they had over time, or become content to satisfy themselves.

Linda Hamilton's sex life is her business. Truth be told, I couldn't guess why she decided to share it with the world.

Maybe she's almost 63 and just doesn't give a f--k what anybody thinks. That attitude starts when you hit 30 and it only ripens with age.

Maybe she wanted others to know that it's 100% okay for them to not have a sex life for its own sake.

If you crave banging, go for it. If you have a dry spell and realize that you're enjoying yourself more during that time, you don't have to date again.

Again, we couldn't possibly guess, but good on Linda for sharing her life and her acting talents with the world once again.
