Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams misspoke when he claimed to be "gender fluid." The senior citizen has backtracked on his comments, insisting he didn't fully understand what being gender fluid meant.

In an interview with Esquire magazine, the 82-year-old AARP cardholder explained that he uses both male and female pronouns when referring to himself.

Williams said, "I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn't take himself or herself too seriously... And you see I say 'himself' and 'herself,' because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine."

There were reports of Williams' elderly female fans falling out over the news that he might be a cross-dresser or go both ways.

The LGBT+ community was ecstatic and praised Williams for being his authentic self. He was portrayed as an "elder gay" speaking his truth. Filmmaker and friend J.J. Abrams congratulated Williams for his "openness".

But, in a later interview with The Undefeated, Williams clarified his comments, insisting he was simply talking about "men getting in touch with their softer side of themselves".

"I was talking about men getting in touch with the female side of themselves. I wasn't talking about sex, I wasn't talking about being gay or straight," he said.

Many social media users suspect Williams trolled his fans to promote his news film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, in which he reprises his role as Lando Calrissian.

The film opens in theaters in 2 weeks.

Filmmaker J.J. Abrams, left, praised geriatric actor Billy Dee Williams after the 82-year-old spoke openly about being gender fluid.

In an interview with Esquire magazine, Williams, who first appeared in the Star Wars franchise in 1980 movie The Empire Strikes Back, explained that he uses both male and female pronouns when referring to himself.

"I'm a very soft person. I'm not afraid to show that side of myself," Williams said. "I never tried to be anything except myself. I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn't take himself or herself too seriously."

"And you see I say 'himself' and 'herself,' because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine," he added.

Speaking with entertainment TV show Extra, Abrams, who directs the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, in which Williams reprises his role as Lando Calrissian, celebrated the actor as the "absolute greatest".

"I think, honestly, that comment and whatever he meant by it, it speaks to his openness," Abrams gushed. "He has such an amazing life experience and he is such a wonderful guy to talk to in-between takes because he will just start referencing relationships he's had with these legends in music and film and dance and theater."

Abrams added: "No one has a smile like Billy Dee and to have him, to get to work with him at all, has been such a joy. He is just the sweetest."

But not everyone is happy about the actor's revelation. Many of his elderly female fans believe the actor is going senile. They wish he had taken his secret to the grave with him.

Elderly women everywhere were shocked at the news that actor heartthrob Billy Dee Williams came out of the closet as a "gender fluid" cross-dresser who possibly goes both ways.

"I'm a very soft person. I'm not afraid to show that side of myself," Williams said in an interview with Esquire to promote his latest film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

"I never tried to be anything except myself. I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn't take himself or herself too seriously,” said Williams, 82.

"And you see I say 'himself' and 'herself,' because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine," he added.

Williams is best known for his role in Lady Sings the Blues (1972) alongside Diana Ross, who played legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday.

The suave and debonair actor made the ladies swoon when he uttered his infamous line to Ross: "You want my arm to fall off?".

 

Williams is also known for his role as Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars trilogy.

Williams said the role he's most proud of is his Emmy-nominated performance as Gale Sayers in the 1971 TV movie Brian's Song.

"It was a love story, really," he told Esquire. "Between two guys. Without sex. It ended up being a kind of breakthrough in terms of racial division."

Gender fluid - a term unheard of before the Obama-era - is said to exist on a gender spectrum that changes with mood from day to day.

For example, someone who identifies as "gender fluid" or "non-binary" may feel they are a mix of both male or female. They may dress manly one day while sashaying in feminine wear the next.

The Obama-era ushered in new words and terms to describe old sexual preferences and sexual identities. The goal of the Obama administration's leftist angenda was to normalize and remove the stigma surrounding sexual identities, including homosexuality, cross-dressing, and pedophilia.
