Modern family cast Julie Bowen, sexuality in a candid podcast chat

Julie Bowen of Modern Family says she once loved a woman.

In an honest podcast chat, Julie Bowen talked about her sexuality and questioned the idea of "coming out" to the public.

Julie Bowen said she fell in love with a woman once, even though she said she was straight.

"I'm not gay. I have never been gay. "I loved a woman for a while, but she didn't love me back," the Modern Family actress said in the latest episode of her Quitters podcast.

"She liked women, but not in that way," Bowen, who is 52, said. "It never really caught on, so I never really had to question my idea of who I am as a gay person."

On the popular show, Bowen played Claire Dunphy, who was married to Phil Dunphy, who was played by Ty Burrell.

The actress came out after a guest on the show, US Bachelor alum Becca Tilley, said that coming out was "stressful" for her, especially since she had been on the ABC show for two seasons.

The 34-year-old reality TV star, who is dating Hayley Kiyoko, told Bowen, "I'm just drawn to people."

"I hope that one day people won't have to come out because it's hard and adds weight. "Life is already so hard; falling in love should be a beautiful, natural thing that no one should have to explain," she said.

On her podcast, Quitters, Bowen talked about the men she's been with in the past.

Bowen, who played Claire Dunphy on the hit US sitcom Modern Family, said that when people ask others to "identify themselves," they are often asking about their sexual preference and what they do "in the bedroom."

"The first thing we should know or care about about someone is not what they do with their body. She said, "It's your business." "As you said, I hope people don't have to come out all the time."

Since she got divorced, the actress has kept quiet about who she's seeing now.

Bowen has kept quiet about her dating life since her divorce.

But she had joked in the past that she would "come out of dating retirement for Harry Styles."
