Samira Wiley is famous for her role as Pousey Washington in "Orange Is the New Black" and was accidentally outed by a former co-star on the show.

Speaking about that experience on WNYC's "Nancy" podcast, Samira said that she thought her character, Pousey, was queer, but that she never felt comfortable about disclosing her sexuality during the early seasons of the show.

However, Samira's co-star accidentally mentioned the actress as a gay actor, which made her cry when she saw it in the tabloids, so much that she tried to take it down.

However, playing Pousey Washington helped Samira to embrace her personality, and she became comfortable about her sexuality, ultimately marrying Lauren Morelli, who was a writer on the show.
