Shay Mitchell Doesn't Define Her Sexuality: 'I Fall In Love With The Spirit of Somebody'

Shay Mitchell famously played a lesbian character on television for almost ten years, so it’s safe to assume that everyone was asking her if she herself was gay, too.

The Pretty Little Liars actress revealed in a new interview that because she played Emily Fields, it’s influenced how she labels herself.

“People always ask me, ‘You play a gay character? Are you gay? Are you straight? Are you this? Are you that?’” Shay remembers to Maxim magazine.

“Look, Emily doesn’t label herself, and I don’t label myself either,” she says. “I fall in love with the spirit of somebody. Love is love, and that’s something that I’ll keep saying.”

However, Shay did reveal the one big quality that attracts her to another: Confidence.

“I’ve seen the most beautiful people walk into a room, and you can just tell they’re not confident,” Shay shares. “It’s just like… ehh… it takes it down for me.”
