Sally Field

The two times Oscar winner shared her views on human sexuality (her son Sam is gay) and her advice for parents:
“Sexuality is a human glorious part of existence. In Sam’s case nature told him what to be…I welcomed him to welcome himself and find that part of his life.
First of all, don’t be frightened. And don’t put your own prejudices or fears about sexuality — your own fears about sexuality – on your children.
What horrifies me is that there are parents who so disapprove, who are so brainwashed to think that this is something out of the Bible or ungodly or against nature. It’s not against nature if nature has actually done this. Sam was always Sam, this wonderful human that he is, from the time he was born. Some people actually shut their children out of the house when they’re young, they’re teenagers – they’re having a hard enough time trying to be teenagers and own any part of sexuality. I’m still trying to figure it out!”
