Evan Rachel Wood, a co-star on the HBO supernatural series True Blood, on Thursday explained on Twitter that she was joking when she suggested that Miley Cyrus might be leaning gay.

After Cyrus, a strong supporter of gay rights, posted pictures of her new pixie haircut, Wood tweeted: “I called it! Miley cyrus is leaning toward gay!”

Wood, who came out bisexual last year, was criticized for the comment.

“I myself am bisexual and have always 'joked' about miley giving me gay vibes. Not a bad thing! Just an observation … So I 'joked' when she cut her hair that it supported my case. But I am not so close minded or into stereotypes or labeling. It was a joke,” she tweeted to her more than 83,000 followers.

The 24-year-old Wood added: “I could care less what gender she was attracted to. But dont hate me for supporting her in whatever She chooses. Its all fine by me.”

Cyrus, 19, responded with: “@evanrachelwood well said!”
