"On that topic, I think... What do I think? I think people shouldn't be scared of that. I'm young, I'm having fun, I don't want to pretend to be something I'm not.

Newly-single Evan Rachel Wood has returned to Twitter.com to slam "lies" suggesting she "hooked up" with fellow actress Michelle Rodriguez following her split from husband Jamie Bell.
The Wrestler beauty logged off her social networking page on Wednesday (28May14), revealing she was stepping away from Twitter "for a while", hours before news of her marriage breakdown was announced. However, the bisexual star decided to break her Twitter silence on Friday (30May14) to dismiss false reports linking her to Fast & Furious actress Rodriguez after they both attended the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center's 2014 An Evening with Women fundraiser, which took place in early May (14).
Wood tweeted, "Looks like someone is already trying to start a rumor that I 'hooked up' with Michelle Rodriguez at 'an evening with women'. "I have never even said 'hello' to Michelle Rodriguez. I think it's convenient someone chose to make up the story now and not that night." Sharing a video clip from the event, she added, "If 'a source' saw us leave together, why am I seen here leaving alone?"
She continued, "This is 'journalism' at its lowest. Complete lies made up to exploit a public separation, as if that isn't hard enough. Disgusting. Also just because you are in a photo with someone doesn't mean you spoke or slept together. Really guys?"
Wood and British actor Bell wed in October, 2012 and welcomed a baby boy last July (13).
Actress Michelle Rodriguez is planning a pop career after her DJing skills gave her a thirst for making music. The Fast & Furious star began DJing at clubs and movie premiere parties around the world in 2009, and she took control of the booth earlier this month (May14) at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's 2014 An Evening with Women event.
Now Rodriguez is eager to show her creative side and work on music of her own, telling Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper, "I definitely want to make my own music. That would be really nice but it's all about working with the right producers."
Leonardo DiCaprio raised nearly $1 million (£625,000) by auctioning off a trip to outer space with him at the amfAR Gala in Cannes, France on Thursday (22May14). The annual charity event gathered Hollywood A-listers, who were in town for the Cannes Film Festival, at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc to raise money for AIDS research, and DiCaprio was among the stars who offered up rare items up for sale.
The Wolf of Wall Street star auctioned a place on a 2015 Virgin Galactic space trip with him, and the once-in-a-lifetime ticket sold for approximately $956,795 (£597,997), according to Variety.com.
Another seat on the trip with DiCaprio sold at last year's (13) amfAR Gala for $1.5 million (£937,500).
DiCaprio's The Quick and the Dead co-star Sharon Stone served as the auctioneer for the 2014 event, highlighting items such as a pair of gloves once owned by fashion mogul Karl Lagerfeld, a collection of red ball gowns by designers from around the world and a rare 1967 Andy Warhol painting of Marilyn Monroe.
A week's rental of the 11-bedroom yacht where Stone has been staying during her trip to Cannes was also sold during the auction.
The amfAR fundraiser brought in a record $35 million (£22.5 million).
Among the celebrities in attendance were Milla Jovovich, Heidi Klum, John Travolta, Jane Fonda, Jessica Chastain, Marion Cotillard, Rosario Dawson, Justin Bieber and Michelle Rodriguez.
The night also included performances by Lana Del Rey, Robin Thicke and classical star Andrea Bocelli, who dedicated My Way to late actress Dame Elizabeth Taylor, who founded amfAR in 1993.
Fast & Furious star Michelle Rodriguez is hoping her recent confession about her interest in both men and women will help those who are having a difficult time dealing with their sexuality. The usually private actress revealed last October (13) that she has been in relationships with both men and women after years of speculation about her sexuality.
On Saturday (10May14), Rodriguez served as a DJ for the afterparty at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's annual An Evening With Women event, and told Gay Star News she decided to come clean to inspire others to follow suit.
Rodriguez said, "I'm not big on people's opinions, you know? Unless it's somebody I really respect. I don't care what people out there have to say. But I do realize the importance of having the bravery to live as who you are and I feel like a lot of people don't have that bravery.
"Maybe by me opening my big fat mouth like I usually do and stepping up and owning who I am, maybe it might inspire somebody else to do the same."
Rodriguez reportedly briefly dated supermodel Cara Delevingne earlier this year (14).
