Ellen DeGeneres has yet to confirm or deny whether or not a gay couple appears in the Disney/Pixar film Finding Dory, but the most recent trailer for the film leaves many fans speculating that it could.
DeGeneres, however, did not give a straight answer during a press conference for the movie in Beverly Hills.
“I personally think it’s a great thing,” DeGeneres, who plays the voice of Dory, said. “I think everything that we see in the media – whether it’s television or film or anything you see – should represent everything that’s happening in the world. I think everybody that is in the world should be seen and represented.”
DeGeneres said that she doesn’t know if the women in the film pushing the baby stroller are lesbians or not.
“I don’t know that [they are], and I didn’t know anything about it until I heard this rumor,” she said. “Then when I watched the premiere, I was looking for that particular scene, and it appears that there are two women.”
Adding, “One woman has a very bad short haircut, which I find very offensive. If that’s the definition of a gay woman, then how dare you? Just because someone has a short, bad haircut doesn’t mean she’s gay. [She just has a] bad hairdresser. So I don’t know that that’s the case.”
Regardless, DeGeneres was happy for the inclusion, even if it’s just a woman with terrible hair.
“So yes, it’s a great conversation,” she said. “Whether they intended it to be a woman with a bad, short haircut being gay or not, I think it’s a great thing.”
Finding Dory is out in theaters June 17.
