It turns out, one of the main characters in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is openly gay -- although you'd never know it from the final cut that's headed to theaters.

According to star Daniella Pineda, who plays paleoveterinarian Zoe Rodriguez, there was a scene in which her character was revealed to be a lesbian, but it ended up on the cutting room floor.

Speaking with Build, Pineda said she "understood why the cut it," explaining that the decision was made "for the sake of time." However, she was disappointed because the moment provided "a little insight into my character."

Recalling details of the scene, Pineda said it involved her and Chris Pratt, "and we are in a military vehicle with all of these mercenaries."

"I look at Chris and am like, 'Yeah. Square jaw. Good bone structure. Tall. Muscles. I don't date men, but if I did, it would be you. It would gross me out, but I would do it,'" Pineda shared.

In Fallen Kingdom, Pratt's character, raptor expert Owen Grady, returns to the Central American island of Isla Nublar -- where the events of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World unfolded -- to save a bunch of dinosaurs before they are destroyed by the imminent eruption of a volcano on the island.

Pratt reunites with Jurassic World co-star Bryce Dallas Howard as former park operations manager Clair Dearing for the daring adventure. The film also marks the return of Jurassic Park star Jeff Goldblum, who is reprising his role as the smooth-talking mathematician Ian Malcolm.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom -- directed by J. A. Bayona and penned by Colin Trevorrow, who co-wrote and directed the first Jurassic World, alongside returning co-writer Derek Connolly -- is set to stampede into theaters on June 22.
