Emily Ratajkowski has said she doesn't think people can be straight after coming out as bisexual.
Earlier this month, the influencer stitched a TikTok video which asked: "If you identify as bisexual, do you own a green velvet couch?"
The 31-year-old then cut to a clip of her sitting on – you guessed it – a green velvet couch.
And in a new interview with Harper’s BAZAAR, rather than confirm she's bisexual, Ratajkowski suggested that everyone is.
"I think sexuality is on a sliding scale," she told the outlet. "I don’t really believe in straight people."
As for the green couch, she explained: "My girlfriend came over and was like, 'Bitch, have you seen the green-couch thing?' She was laughing at me because my green couch is so big.
"I want to be able to have fun with how I present myself in the world without feeling like I’m a bad feminist or a good feminist.
"Duh. I don’t want to be a part of your club if you don’t want to have me. It’s fine."
Plenty of people have celebrated Ratajkowski's green couch clip, with one writing: "So many celeb women are coming out and I just love it."
"I’m not even gay but I feel like this a win for us," said another, while a third added, "Celebs coming out in cryptic TikToks is my new favorite genre."
Elsewhere in the interview, the star opened up about being a mum, having welcomed her first child Sylvester Apollo Bear into the world in March this year with Sebastian Bear-McClard, who she's in the process of divorcing after four years of marriage.
"I’ve never had such clear priorities before in my life," she said. "Number one is Sly, and that’s that."
As for being single, Ratajkowski explained: "I can tell you that I have never been single before... I feel all the emotions. I feel anger, sadness. I feel excitement. I feel joy. I feel levity.
"Every day is different. The only good thing I know is that I’m feeling all those things, which is nice because it makes me believe that I’ll be okay."
The model went on to say that she's 'gone on dates' before joking 'give me time'.
Earlier this year, the 31-year-old spoke with author Lisa Taddeo about motherhood, revealing she had 'initially' wanted a daughter but was 'so relieved' when she realised she was having a baby boy.
Ratajkowski had been concerned about a daughter ‘being sexualized way before puberty and being aware of it', adding that this 'might be something I deal with later' as she'd like to have more children.
