Antoni Porowski opened up about body image and dating

Antoni Porowski has always been open about the fact that he doesn’t confine himself to any one particular definition of sexuality and thinks of himself as fluid. His latest project, therefore, is very personal to him. Porowski will soon appear in his very own Netflix romantic comedy, Girls & Boys, which will focus on a character who dates people of both genders. Few other details about the project have been released, so it’s not yet known the name of the character that Porowski will play, or when the exact release date is.

Recently, Porowski opened up to Them about his upcoming film and the way that he was able to connect to the story. Speaking of his dating history, Porowski revealed that “I’ve had more lasting relationships with women than I’ve had with men. I’ve had two real relationships with men and actually dated a guy, and then I went back to girls for several years.” In a previous interview, the star talked about the biggest difference in the way that his relationships with men and women progressed: “I think part of me, if I’m fully honest, always knew that I was interested in guys. But at the same time, I had relationships with women where I was really happy.” Porowski also stated that, in general, he was always more comfortable with his body image in relationships with women because there wasn’t a constant sense of comparison.

With charm and honesty to spare, Antoni Porowski clearly has a bright future ahead of him in Hollywood.
