The actress, who won the best supporting actress Oscar for Paper Moon, tells People: 'I like women. I definitely have been dating mostly women recently.'

'I think women are the most amazing creatures on earth. They're gentle, and also more intelligent than the men that I've met recently. I don't have a steady right now, but I look forward to it.'

But O'Neal, 51, does not want to be called bisexual or lesbian.

'I'm not one or the other,' she says.

O'Neal was once famously married to tennis star John McEnroe with whom she had three children and is the daughter of actor Ryan O'Neal.

Her other film credits include Little Darlings, The Bad News Bears and Nickelodeon and she was also a regular on the TV series Rescue Me.
