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.”
“Itâ€™s a civil rights issue,” she says. “In 20 years weâ€™re going to look back at tapes of these antigay people saying ridiculous things on the news and itâ€™s going to sound as antiquated a the newsreels of horrible racists from the â€˜50s.”
As forÂ long-standing rumorsÂ 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 donâ€™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 -â€“ she was almost 4 at the time -â€“ and she said, ‘Daddy, we canâ€™t eat Chick-fil-A anymore. This guy who owns it is so weird. He thinks a guy canâ€™t marry a guy and a girl canâ€™t marry a girl. But we know better!'”
Busy has recently announced that she’s pregnant with her second child.
