Does Laverne Cox have a new boyfriend?
As incarcerated hairdresser Sophia on “Orange is the New Black,” Laverne Cox has become a breakout star. She’s also become a poster child for transgender rights: She appeared on the cover of Time Magazine, and she’s producing a documentary about a transwoman who was attacked on the street and then sent to a men’s prison.
Cox is an incredible person, and I’m sure she would want to be treated just like any other prominent actress, so I’m going to do so by speculating wildly about her personal life. In an interview with E! Online, Cox said that she does indeed have a man in her life, though they’re currently keeping things casual.
“I’m seeing someone but we haven’t defined what we’re doing,” Cox said. “We’re just enjoying each other’s company and having a very good time and laughing together and supporting each other.”
Cox wasn’t sure if more of a commitment would ever be right for her. “I don’t want to have kids. I’m not even sure if I want to get married,” she said.
“I want to give birth to films, and television shows, and characters.”
I hope her current flame is cool with that. I also hope he’s Chris Evans, because they would be cute together. (Note: I have no evidence that Chris Evans knows Laverne Cox.)
