Princess Diaries Star Finds Her Own Princess
Quirky PRINCESS DIARIES and SAVED! star HEATHER MATARAZZO has joined the likes of ROSIE O'DONNELL and MELISSA ETHERIDGE by marrying another woman.
The 21-year-old actress is refusing to reveal her wife's name, but admits to America's ADVOCATE magazine she's a New York theatre star.
Matarazzo was hoping to keep her sexuality a secret but she's "so in love" she felt she had to tell the world.
She tells the gay magazine, "Even drawing her a bath... makes me want to cry because I've never been so happy.
"I'm not going to throw a big ticker tape parade, like, 'I'm here, I'm queer, whatever. It's part of who I am. I embrace it.
"I didn't want to be known as a lesbian that happens to be an actress. I wanted to be known as an actress who happens to be with a woman."
The actress admits her sexuality has been a problem for her Italian mother, who is a devout Catholic, but she's beginning to accept her daughter for what she is.
Matarazzo adds, "It's been hard for her, (but she's) very proud that I'm her daughter."21/10/2004 02:24
