Hillary Clinton is shutting down any gay rumors you may have heard about her, telling Howard Stern in a new interview that she's not a lesbian and "actually likes men," NBC News reports.

In the interview, Clinton opens up about her relationships, marriage to former president Bill Clinton and a relationship she had just before meeting him.

"He was a good guy, and he was so handsome, really handsome. He looked like a Greek god. He really was handsome. He was really attractive," she told Stern. "Well, contrary to what you might hear, I actually like men."

"Oh, that's the other thing! Raise your right hand, you've never had a lesbian affair," Stern replied.

"Never, never, never! Never even been tempted, thank you very much," Clinton responded.

But her remarks didn't sit well with everyone, including Trish Bendix, a LGBTQ reporter and entertainment journalist, who told NBC News she was "disappointed" by the comments.

"It's so frustrating when public figures like Hillary feel the need to dispel lesbian rumors in a way that equates lesbianism or queerness with salaciousness, and that's ultimately what I dislike about the way she phrased it. Specifically the word 'tempted,'" Bendix told NBC News. "I think there's a way to refute untrue ideas about one's own identity without saying something damaging to others."

The former Secretary of State appeared on Stern's show to promote her new book "The Book of Gutsy Women." Elsewhere in the interview, Clinton said attending Donald Trump's inauguration was "one of the hardest days of my life, to be honest" and that former President George W. Bush told her after Trump's speech "that was some weird shit."
