Natasha Lyonne: One of us?

I think she is just great. I have been watching her movies since I was a kid. I searched Google near and far. I find no evidence of heterosexuality, aside from dating Edward Furlong at age 19. She is 34, raised Orthodox Jewish, yet never married. She is a lesbian, right?

by Anonymousreply 8406/24/2015

No idea, but it sounds like she's kicked her heroin addiction. She looks a lot better.

by Anonymousreply 207/21/2013

I always assumed she was gay. Nothing about her reads straight to me.

by Anonymousreply 307/21/2013

If she were bi, I think she would have dated a few guys since 2000.

She's the best part of "Black is the New Orange"

I thought it was known she's gay?

by Anonymousreply 607/21/2013

I'm pleasantly surprised her career has picked up again. She was in Amanda Bynes territory for a while. Not as outlandish or out to be shocking like Bynes, but she was in a very bad way.

Orange is the New Black

She seems gay to me but I don't think she's ever admitted to it.

by Anonymousreply 807/21/2013

She's amazing on Orange is the New Black. I hope she becomes a regular next season. I did just hear that they made Taryn Manning, who is also fantastic, a regular for season 2.

I think the only way Natasha Lyonne's sexual orientation is known is the same way we assume Richard Simmons is gay, though he has never said so himself.

by Anonymousreply 1207/21/2013

r11, you are absolutely right. She is amazing in Die Mommie Die! And she's also great in Confessions of a Trickbaby (a/k/a Freeway II).

She's a fascinating personality, and I seem to remember her as being one of the original club kids back in the day (I know she played one in Party Monster, but I think that was always one of the weird little "Did You Know" things about that whole situation).

I like how she drifts in and out of the American Pie series, and I love how when you watch Blade 3, you can have a contest from scene to scene determining who's more fucked up in any given scene, her or Kristofferson. But I adore Natasha and am glad she's cleaned up.

R14, yes. Pensawtucky.

Does anyone know if she has a girlfriend?

by Anonymousreply 1707/22/2013

I don't know. But, she seems cook and I really enjoy her acting work.

by Anonymousreply 1907/22/2013

She is good friends with Rosie O'Donnell. In fact, Rosie banged on about her so much on her radio show, I thought they were together.

by Anonymousreply 2007/22/2013

Cool, not cook.

by Anonymousreply 2107/22/2013

She seems to look younger now than she did in American Pie.

by Anonymousreply 2207/22/2013

She got off the drugs, lost some weight.

by Anonymousreply 2307/22/2013

She was just on The View. Unless I read her body language/demeanor wrong, I think they offended her with the endless heroin questions.

Given that Natasha Lyonne was born in 1979, she certainly was not one of the original club kids.

She looks like she's still on Methadone. Methadone bloat.

Google Taryn Manning "images"....in real life she is a hot rocker fashionista with her own line of clothing design.

Who knew?

They met while doing Nora Ephron's "Love, Loss, and What I Wore" Off-Broadway and really clicked. They are real friends, not show biz, and Rosie has been really supportive of Natasha's sobriety and biggest Cheerleader.

Horseshit, she looked fabulous on "The View".

by Anonymousreply 2907/30/2013

Tiny factoids...

Lyonne was on "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" as a kid,

she was a model...

and her grandparents were Holocaust survivors.

I really lyk natasha..en hoping she's one ov us

by Anonymousreply 3110/05/2013

Didn't Michael Rappaport accuse her of having sex with a dog? This was when he evicted her from an apartment he owned after she turned it into a drug den. Amanda Bynes is the Virgin Mary by comparison.

by Anonymousreply 3210/05/2013

Straight. Has a boyfriend. Big Boo from OITNB said she is straight.

by Anonymousreply 3306/10/2014

She says in this interview that she has a boyfriend. She says she has lots of lesbian friends and that she has not slept with them. She says she smoked crack. She says she's been booked at the Tombs. But she never says she is gay.

by Anonymousreply 3406/10/2014

I read at interview with Lea Delaria and she said Natasha is straight.

[R13] Taryn Manning is a lesbian as well.

Where did you get that from?

Taryn Manning has a really weird mouth.

by Anonymousreply 3706/11/2014

Cool actress. Nice recovery.

by Anonymousreply 3806/11/2014

I assume the Taryn Manning rumor is because of her fight with what one gossip site called her 'personal assistant'- inverted commas included.I believe she was arrested for it.

by Anonymousreply 3906/11/2014

I think she's dating Andrew Zipern now...Which is like really surprising cause I always thought she was gay

by Anonymousreply 4006/11/2014

[39] so Taryn is not gay?

Um, everyone? She's hardly a newbie to the biz. She's been around a long time.

Is there a role for Fairuza Balk on OItNB?

by Anonymousreply 4306/11/2014

Love Lyonee. Taryn Manning is odd looking and not just on OITNB, where she's purposefully made really trashy.

by Anonymousreply 4406/11/2014

I can't believe she's only 35. She's a walking advertisement against illegal drug use.

by Anonymousreply 4506/11/2014

No ping at all from either one of them.

by Anonymousreply 4606/11/2014

She lives with her boyfriend in New York City. She has never claimed to not he bisexual though. She tends to play more masculine female roles which is probably why most assume she's a lesbian.

by Anonymousreply 4706/12/2014

I'm really glad she's recovered. She's the best thing about OITNB.

I don't get lesbian at all from her. If anything, the one thing she doesn't excel at are the sex scenes on OITNB, they're all awkward.

by Anonymousreply 4806/12/2014

R41, I gathered from the use of inverted commas when using the term 'personal assistant' that the gossip site was implying that she was more than a personal assistant. That's the only thing I've read that implies Taryn is gay, it wouldn't surprise me either way.

by Anonymousreply 4906/12/2014

R42 = Taryn Manning.

That was kind of a sad, R51.

by Anonymousreply 5306/17/2014

She says that she has a boyfriend. However, she admitted to experimenting. If she happened to be gay Natasha would have proclaimed it already.

by Anonymousreply 5406/17/2014

Good to know, R54. I wouldn't want Natasha to be like Lori Petty -- 50, haggard, and still trying to convince an incredulous public that she likes dick. That would, as R53 said, truly be sad.

Meanwhile I found a funny radio interview Natasha did recently. At around the 11:03 mark she talks about a "lover" and says "when they..." instead of "he" or "she".

by Anonymousreply 5506/18/2014

She's bi-coastal (LA and NY)...people there typically don't marry until they're older, not like flyover ville where they get married at 22 or 23.

by Anonymousreply 5606/18/2014

There is nothing to suggest. Lyonne is a lez. Manning, on the other hand...

by Anonymousreply 5708/07/2014

Rufus Wainwright's song "Natasha" is about her

by Anonymousreply 5808/07/2014

So, she's leaving OITNB. Color us intrigued about the reason for this? There must be something gossipy about it.

On the downside, the show will officially suck. Her character was one of the more tolerable to watch...when she wasn't fucking.

R60, I already have too many tabs open and don't feel like it. It was in 2 different tabloids apparently, but the "anonymous" internet talk has some very convincing things to say about it.

Supposedly she will go away in episode 9.

by Anonymousreply 6208/10/2014

R62 Oh shut up, tool, no it isn't. I'm doing stuff for work in between stress-relieving gossip surfing.

One of the tabloids is inTouch mag...I just googled it and apparently it's not printed on the net. Saw a screenshot of it though. You look for it, if you're that interested.

But what's more interesting is that elsewhere, someone cited the exact episode it happens, and that both Lyonne and Mulgrew kind of implied it in recent interviews. Lyonne has also not jumped in to refute these published gossip pieces, etc. She's been laying low all around.

by Anonymousreply 6308/10/2014

She's dating Fred Armisen now! Cannot wait to see what their offspring look like/act like!

by Anonymousreply 6408/26/2014

Lyonne and armisen are a match made in hollyweird. That happened pretty fast btw.

by Anonymousreply 6508/26/2014

A woman with any sort of queer bone in her body would not be with Armisen, R66.

You meant a GAY gentile?

by Anonymousreply 6708/26/2014

Agree with R11 and R15 - she was great in Die, Mommie, Die!

Fred Armisen has been open about his unrequited crush on his creative partner Carrie Brownstein. Who would want to get messed up in that?

She is hot and I wish she were one of us!

by Anonymousreply 8106/10/2015

She said in an interview (the one above with the black man) that she's straight but she's down for whatever (when they were on the subject of her being gay on the show) Also it's believed she dated a few women back in the early 2000's. It's also not confirmed whether or not she's leaving OITNB but she most likely isn't and will be back for Season 4

Obviously if she's down for whatever, she's not completely straight so I'd label her as bisexual. She never comes straight out and says something just like she doesn't come right out when on the subject of former heroin addiction or whether or not Nicky is returning to OITNB. She just drops hints.

So technically she's still one of us.

by Anonymousreply 8206/24/2015

But God bless that sexy voice that makes her sound 10 years older <3

by Anonymousreply 8306/24/2015

She was only in the first handful of episodes of the third season before her character got shipped off. Hope she comes back in season 4.
