Can’t girls have a best girl friend – without there being rumors that they’re gay??
Busy Phillips addressed rumors that she’s involved in a secret lesbian relationship with Michelle Williams, her best friend since they starred together in ‘Dawson’s Creek’.
The 33-year-old ‘Cougar Town’ actress reveals marriage equality is important to her, because she’s a “decent human being.”
“ItÃ¢â¬â¢s a civil rights issue,” she says. “In 20 years weÃ¢â¬â¢re going to look back at tapes of these antigay people saying ridiculous things on the news and itÃ¢â¬â¢s going to sound as antiquated a the newsreels of horrible racists from the Ã¢â¬Ë50s.”
As forÃÂ long-standing rumorsÃÂ that she and her “Dawson’s Creek” co-star Williams are more than just good friends, Phillips adds, “I love her as deeply as I love almost anyone. But we donÃ¢â¬â¢t do it.”
She also recalls a conversation between husband Mark Silverstein and their now 4-year-old daughter Birdie Leigh.
“One day she overheard me talking to my mother about the whole antigay debacle,” she says. “Days later, my husband was with her in the car -Ã¢â¬â she was almost 4 at the time -Ã¢â¬â and she said, ‘Daddy, we canÃ¢â¬â¢t eat Chick-fil-A anymore. This guy who owns it is so weird. He thinks a guy canÃ¢â¬â¢t marry a guy and a girl canÃ¢â¬â¢t marry a girl. But we know better!'”
Busy has recently announced that she’s pregnant with her second child.
