Uncut Gems star Julia Fox explained she’s ‘closed, shut, sealed’ after one big life event

Julia Fox detailed why she’s been celibate – or in her words, ‘closed, shut, sealed’ – for two years as she said she’s ‘never been better’.

Just a couple of years after Fox shot into the spotlight following her appearance in Adam Sandler’s Uncut Gems in 2019, she welcomed her first child, Valentino, with her former partner Peter Artemiev.

She was later linked to Kanye West after his divorce from Kim Kardashian, but now Fox has revealed that she’s actually been celibate for more than two years – encompassing the time she dated Kanye.

The actor made the revelation in a comment on TikTok in response to another user who was sharing her thoughts on an ad for the dating app Bumble which read: “A vow of celibacy is not the answer.”

In response to the video, Fox wrote: “2.5 years of celibacy and never been better [to be honest].”

The comment comes after Fox posted a video in 2022 indicating she was no longer interested in having sex after the arrival of Valentino in January 2021.

In her post at the time, she admitted she had previously tried for years to make men ‘like’ her or find her ‘desirable or interesting or attractive’.

However, she’s now reached a point in her life where she doesn’t ‘need’ that any more.

Fox explained: “I used to be so jealous of my friends that did not need to use their sexuality to get what they wanted. They just had rich parents or were set up properly and had an education, etc.

“So I just want to say, like – no hate to the girlies that have lots of male followers, I used to be like that too. But now I’m at a place where I’m like, ‘f*** it. I don’t give a f***.’

“Also I, like, have a kid already so it’s like, I did what I was supposed to do by society’s standards, my vagine is retired. The doors are closed, shut, sealed after what she went through!”

Fox doubled down on her thoughts about sex in an interview with Elle last year, when she claimed she wanted to be ‘left alone’.

“Like, don’t talk to me, don’t look at me, don’t bother me,” she said.

The actor went on to equate heterosexual relationships to sex work, saying: “I feel like knowingly engaging in a heterosexual relationship, you are signing yourself up for an unhealthy dynamic.

“At the end of the day, a wife and a [sex worker] are both doing the same thing, but the [sex worker] is doing it with different men and the wife does it with the same man – they just put a fancy label on it.”

Fox received praise and support for announcing her 2.5 years of celibacy on TikTok, with many other users responding to her comment to share their own experiences.

One user wrote: “8 yrs celebrate, no drama, no hate, I’m finally loving every second of my life.”
