London, Oct 27 (IANS) Actress Alicia Silverstone says that her first boyfriend was gay.

The "Clueless" star admits she was so in love with the person that she ignored her friends' suspicions about his sexuality, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I've had so many crushes on gay boys. My first love was so gay, and I didn't know. I used to defend him because everyone would say he was gay, but he'd say he wasn't. Then, about six years later, he had the big talk with me," said the 36-year-old.

Silverstone is now married to rocker Christopher Jarecki.
