Angie Harmon is not your ordinary Hollywood actress.

The stunning star of Rizzoli & Isles is getting candid—extremely candid—in the latest issue of More magazine.

In the special 15th anniversary issue, she talks about being a republican in Tinsletown and her personal thoughts on homosexuality.

"I'm a liberal republican…we actually exist," she told the mag. "Call it naïveté or stupidity, but I didn't know that unless you are a Democrat, you aren't allowed to talk politics in Hollywood."

But despite her political views, Angie is speaking out about her own opinions on homosexuality.

"Whether we're gay or straight, it doesn't matter," she explained.

"We're all women. We all have the same wonderful situations happening to us, the same horrific situations. We all get our hearts broken."

And if there's one thing that the brunette beauty credits to helping her with certain issues in her life, it's therapy.

She credited and encouraged women to seek out professional help, but explained how it doesn't hold a place in her life permanently.

"I do believe in therapy. I don't believe in staying in it for life," she said. "When you have an issue, you go talk to someone, get your issue taken care of, then you go live your life and you're armed with the tools to do it correctly."

In hindsight, Harmon's advice seems all too poignant now with the news of her late costar's death.

Sources exclusively told E! News that he had suffered from depression for some time leading up to his apparent suicide.

In the wake of Young's death, production on Rizzoli & Isles has been temporarily suspended.
