Jenna Ortega Recently Disclosed Why Wednesday Addams Is Considered A Gay Icon
Jenna was asked why she thinks her character Wednesday Addams is seen as a gay icon in a recent interview with Gayety. “I think because she’s a badass,” she said.
The Wednesday star told the media outlet, “She’s cool, she’s got a nice sense of style, but she’s somebody who embraces her differences and isn’t out to please anybody. I feel like that’s a really, really powerful thing to see. I feel like people want to see powerful women with powerful women.”
Several users believe Wednesday as a character may be lesbian or asexual. In the TV show Wednesday, Wednesday Addams has two men she likes. Xavier is one of them and Tyler is the other. She isn’t really interested in either of them, though.
Jenna told MTV News a secret about her character Wednesday Addams and said that she doesn’t think Wednesday will date Xavier in season 2 of the show.
Ortega told the publication, “Now that Tyler’s off the table, I feel like she’s off of boys for a while. I feel like she and Xavier are just getting to a safe place. I think there’s an opportunity there for a really sweet platonic relationship.”
Soon after, Jenna said, “Because I don’t think it’s shown enough, men and women having safe, platonic relationships that don’t turn romantic and are just honest, almost sibling-like relationships. I think it would be great to see that.”
