Actress, author, and activist: Maria Bello: 'Whatever, love is love'

CHST Banner

The actress Maria Bello has appeared in so many things that shaped us. The movie “Thank You For Smoking” made anxious and jittery and somehow not want a cigarette. The show “ER” made us realize men can be beautiful. (You were our first love, Noah Wyle.) And the movie “Coyote Ugly” made us want to … be Maria Bello.

Apparently, badass-ery runs in he family. When Maria’s son Jack was 12, she told him she was romantically involved with a woman. His reply? “Whatever, Mom, love is love.”

That inspired Maria to write a new book called, yes, “Whatever…. Love is Love: Questioning the Labels We Give Ourselves.” We caught up with Bello to discuss the book. We’re feeling the warm and fuzzies.
