What Is Maya Hawke’s Sexuality?

In 2019, when Maya’s character on Stranger Things, Robin, was revealed to be a lesbian, fans were pleased. She told Indie Wire that Robin’s sexuality changed while the movie was being made. “During filming, we started to think that she is gay and that she shouldn’t be with Steve. Even when I watch older episodes, it seems like the most obvious choice ever.”

She said, “The Duffer brothers, Shawn Levy, and I talked a lot while we were filming, but I don’t think we made a final decision until we were filming episodes four and five,” she said. “The conversation was kind of a team effort, and I’m really, really happy with how it went.”

Maya Has Been Linked To Several Men, Including Tom Sturridge, In The Past.

Maya used to date actor Tom Sturridge, who was in the movie Sandman. Due to the age difference, this relationship caused quite a stir (Hawke was 22 and Sturridge was 35). The two were often seen together in New York City up until about January 2022. Tom is known for having a child with actress Sienna Miller, with whom he was in a relationship in the past.

Before Tom, Maya was reportedly dating Gus Wenner, the president, and chief operating officer of Rolling Stone, in February 2019. At the time, Maya posted a cute picture of them together on Instagram, but fans soon found out that they had broken up. She also gave hints that her album “Blush,” which came out in June 2020, talked about problems she had had in relationships.
