In the 1983 movie Flashdance, Jennifer Beals’s role as Alex Owens made her famous and helped her start a successful acting career.
As her career went on, the young actress starred in hit movies like 1995’s Devil in a Blue Dress, 1998’s The Last Days of Disco, and the Showtime series The L Word: Generation Q. (2019).
Many of Jennifer Beals’ older fans will remember her as the flashy lead in Flashdance, but younger fans will always think of her as the legendary Bette Porter (the gay character she played in The L Word: Generation Q)
Since the show started in 2004, viewers have been very interested in whether or not Jennifer Beals is gay. This page would talk about Jennifer Beals’ personal life, including her marriage to Ken Dixon and rumors that she is gay.
Is Jennifer Beals Gay Or Not?
Jennifer Beals is a strong supporter of the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and the LGBTQ community. On the Showtime show The L Word, Beals played Bette Porter, a lesbian who went to college at an Ivy League school. In The L Word, her lesbian character Bette Porter kisses a lot of different people, not just her wife Tina Kennard. She’s had a lot of one-night stands, including ones with Candace Jewell, Jodi Lerner, and a lot of other people.
The first people who were cast in The L Word weren’t really gay in real life. 2004 was a different time, after all. Leisha Hailey, played by Alice Pieszecki, was the only lesbian in the main cast. She was dating Nina Garduno, the owner, and designer of Free City, while the show was being made.
But Jennifer Beals has never even tried to be anything but straight in real life. She told Vulture, when asked if the show changed how she feels about herself or how she defines her sexuality, “I am so super-square, so super-straight, and so super-cis.” “I feel so old and out of style.”
Jennifer has tried both love and marriage more than once. Alexander Rockwell used to be her husband. The second was with Ken Dixon, her current boyfriend, with whom she is still together.
