Saffron Burrows who worked in Circle of Friends and appeared in Frida, Troy and shark shocker Deep Blue Seas came out and announced to the world that she's a devoted lesbian.
In 2000 she told Tatler magazine, "I prefer the company of women when men reject me for dates"
She says she has been dating Fiona Shaw for several years because she is scared of being left alone without anyone.
In her relationship with Shaw she has accepted the role of a homosexual daughter who pleases her mistress mother by playing the role of a tomboy, butch dike.
When asked why she accepted the submissive role of being a man and mounting her lover, she said it was because she fears other women and she wanted to show women in society that she's not a danger to them, but a satisfying friend.
Saffron says, "Although the relationship for me is extremely painful and I have to give up a feminine part of myself, I feel that feminist society appreciates my sacrifice and would never turn against me."
Saffron admits that she would never offend any woman by dating their fathers, sons, husbands, and little brothers.
She says she never looks at men when she's out in public so that women in immediate area don't become protective of those men.
