Billy Dee Williams Talks Gender Fluidity, Feeling Masculine & Feminine

Billy Dee Williams Talks Gender Fluidity, Feeling Masculine & Feminine”

Screen acting icon Billy Dee Williams, who soared to heartthrob status in such classic 70's films as Lady Sings the Blues, Mahogany and Brian's Song, admits in an interview that he sees himself as being "sexually fluid". Not only is this his mantra, but the 82 -year-old actor is breaking down gender-conforming walls as well. The actor uses the pronouns he / him and she / her to describe himself.

While speaking about Star Wars and his Lando Calrissian character, he transitioned into thoughts about himself, saying, "I say "himself" and 'herself, ' because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine. And I intentionally offered one thing that no person had skilled earlier than: a romantic brown-skinned boy". I'm not afraid to point out that facet of myself. "I state "himself" and 'herself, ' since I consider myself to be ladylike just as manly", he said.

Actor Billy Dee Williams lives life by his own standards and believes everyone should "Be yourself".

With franchises like Star Wars becoming increasingly diverse, it's refreshing to see those involved with the movies embracing and accepting a nonbinary view of what gender is. His iconic character again pushed cultural boundaries in the stand-alone prequel film, "Solo", in which a younger Lando, played by Donald Glover, was implied to be pansexual - something which was subsequently confirmed by the film's story writer, Jonathan Kasdan, in an interview with Huffington Post. "Between two boys. Without sex It ended up being a kind of breakthrough in terms of racial division".

Later this month, fans will be reunited with Williams in "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker", for which Williams went on a strict diet and exercise routine, he said.

When inquired as to whether "this is the end for Lando", Williams said that it relies upon "how a lot of cash is produced". That's how I see Lando.

He even made sure to wonder what Lando would be up to before the events in The Rise of Skywalker.
