Stephanie Beatriz claims she kept her sexual orientation “hidden for a really long time” for fear of jeopardizing her career and relationships.

“I thought, ‘Oh, it might affect my career, it might affect some of my relationships,'” the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” actress, who is bisexual, said at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday.

“And it did, and it probably still does.”

“And saying to the world, ‘This is me, all of me.'” ‘Take it or leave it, baby,’ she continued. “And, ‘I’m here, sharing the same space as you.'” So, what’s up.”

Beatriz, who has a 1-year-old daughter Rosaline with husband Brad Hoss, also stated that while “no one really has to come out” with their sexual identity, she chose to do so to be loud and proud of who she is.

“I think, as a bisexual woman who is currently married to a man, what was important to me was that the world knew I wanted to be open about who I was,” she said.

Beatriz said while promoting her latest film, “Bucky F*kin’ Dent.” She plays grief counselor Mariana in the David Duchovny-directed film, who develops a romantic connection with Yankee Stadium vendor Teddy (played by Logan Marshall-Green).

“My dad was a huge baseball fan. That was part of why I wanted to do the film,” Beatriz, who was born in Argentina, explained.

“He loved the New York Yankees. He grew up in Colombia, so they would listen to the games on the radio. And that was one of the first times that I remember him talking about wanting to move to the US.”

Beatriz revealed in a 2018 interview that she initially realized she was bisexual when she was 11 years old.

“My mom took us to see this Frida Kahlo exhibit at the Houston Museum of Art when I was, like, 11. And all I did was stare at the boobs. There were boobs everywhere,” the “Modern Family” star said to New York Magazine.

“Later in life, it was a slow progression of coming out to some friends, then to my sister, and then publicly, and having my parents react with the public coming out, which hasn’t been an easy road, but I think they’re OK.”

Beatriz also stated in June 2018 that her sexual orientation made her feel like an “invisible part of the LGBTQIA community.”

“Speaking from personal experience, it feels so f–king good to be out. It’s still scary sometimes — I feel like an outsider so often,” she wrote in a personal essay for GQ.

“But those moments of discomfort are worth it because living authentically gives me so much joy and feels so honest and good.”
