Tomlin has never really hidden her sexual orientation but she hasn't been shouting it from the rooftops, either — "Listen, I just think nobody was ever really interested in my sex life. I may weep," she told the Advocate in 2009.
In that interview, she did reveal that she turned down an offer by Time magazine to come out on its cover in 1975. "I don’t think anybody was coming out yet then, and I frankly was not interested in being typed as the gay celebrity. I think what Ellen (DeGeneres) did was incredibly brave, and she paid a price for it — and she did it about 20 years after I got that offer."
Wagner and Tomlin collaborated on Tomlin's Tony-winning "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe" and her film "The Incredible Shrinking Woman."
