Brenton Thwaites, the Australian actor who starred as Prince Philip in the film Maleficent, has suggested he's bisexual.

In an interview with The Fix to promote the upcoming film Son of a Gun, the 25-year-old Thwaites was asked to name three qualities he looks for in a potential partner.

“Male or female?” Thwaites asked.

“Both,” the interviewer replied.

“Well, they're very different,” Thwaites explained, adding that a potential partner must have peanut butter in their cupboard.

Thwaites is best known for playing Luke Gallagher on the teen drama SLiDE and Stu Henderson on the soap opera Home and Away. Recent films include The Giver, in which he played a teenager given the task of remembering his community's memories opposite Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep.
