Luca star Jack Dylan Grazer is the latest star to come out in a wonderfully casual way, revealing he's bisexual in an Instagram Live Q&A.

Congrats, Jack!

Footage of the moment is currently circulating on social media (watch below). At around the same time, the star also changed their Instagram pronouns to he/they, according to reports this weekend. (At the time of writing, Jack's account does not appear to contain pronouns.)

"Silencio Bruno!"

In the video in question, Jack is seeing reading out a question from a fan: "Are you gay?"

"I'm bi..." the 17-year-old replies, before adding in a reference to Pixar's Luca: "Silencio Bruno!"

"Silencio Bruno" it is the catchphrase of Jack's Luca character Alberto, who teaches his friend Luca to use it whenever he needs to silence his fears.

Jack plays the role of Alberto in Disney's latest film, about two teenage sea monsters posing as humans in an Italian fishing town. The movie has been widely interpreted as a metaphor for coming to terms with one's sexuality.

Jack is also known for roles in HBO's We Are Who We Are and It Chapter One and It Chapter Two.
