Billy Dee Williams has come out.

Speaking exclusively to Esquire, Billy Dee Williams, one of the coolest dudes to ever grace the planet revealed that he is gender fluid, and often goes by 'himself' and 'herself'. But first, lets take a look back at his life.

He's best known for Star Wars.

Billy Dee will always be best known for his role as Lando Calrissian in four Star Wars films, first appearing in The Empire Strikes Back.

But he's acted in so much more.

While he will be eternally remembered as Lando, Billy Dee has actually been acting since the 1950's and has starred in dozens and dozens of films, beginning in the 1950's.

His first film was in 1959.

Billy Dee's first role was in the 1959 film, The Last Angry Man, however he also starred in such classics as Batman, Fear City, and Lego Movie.

Billy Dee came from very humble beginnings.

He was born in New York City in 1937 to a mother who worked as an elevator operator and a father who worked as a caretaker. Billy Dee grew up in Harlem and spent much of his childhood at his grandmothers house because his mother and father were working many different jobs.

During school Williams developed his passion for acting.

And his passion led him to some unbelievable heights, playing roles such as Martin Luther King, and of course, Lando Calrissian.

He's also incredibly well known for his adverts.

Most specifically his role in a string of iconic Colt 45 beer adverts during the 1980's.

Speaking about his time in Star Wars, Billy Dee said:

The Rock calls me the OG. What I presented on that screen people didn’t expect to see. And I deliberately presented something that nobody had experienced before: a romantic brown-skinned boy.

And he's returning to the role very shortly.

Lando will be back for the upcoming Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker. Speaking about his concerns with the reprisal of the role, Billy Dee said:
Do I have that same hunger, excitement, that I had years earlier? This is a very difficult time for me, as far as age is concerned. When you get to be a certain age, whether you want to think about mortality or not, you think about it.

But now he believes he does have the energy.

And he's been working out non-stop to make sure he's in the best shape possible at 82 to take on the role again.

But is this the end for Star Wars?

Well Billy Dee had this to say:
It’s a conclusion—certainly it depends on how much money is generated. That’s when they determine where’s the conclusion. The one thing about show business, you can resurrect anything

He also came out as gender neutral.

Despite the fantastic interview, it's Billy Dee's comments on being gender neutral that most people seem to have picked up on. He confessed to Esquire:
And you see I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself,’ because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine.

But that wasn't all he said.

Billy Dee then continued stating that he's not afraid. He said:
I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.

And Donald Glover spoke about the same thing.

When playing Lando himself, Donald Glover discussed the same sort of attitude towards gender fluidity. When Billy Dee was told he responded saying:
Really? That kid is brilliant—just look at those videos.

The film drops at the end of this month. We can't wait!
