Billy Dee Williams describes himself as 'Gender Fluid' in interview

Veteran actor Billy Dee Williams says he identifies himself as gender-fluid.

During an interview with Esquire Williams spoke about using both pronouns he/him and she/her pronouns.

"You see I say 'himself' and 'herself,' because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine," Williams explained. "I'm a very soft person. I'm not afraid to show that side of myself."

The actor said he considers himself as a relatively colorful character who doesn't take "himself" or "herself" too seriously.

Williams is set to reprise his role as Landon Calrissian in the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Many people on social media are praising the 82-year-old old actor: "I am absolutely HERE for Billy Dee Williams identifying as gender fluid. And I have totally shipped (with nothing to back it up) him and Marlon Brando back in the day ??," one user wrote.
