MARK Ronson has revealed he identifies as “sapiosexual” which means a person is attracted to intelligence before gender.
The award-winning producer made his admission on Good Morning Britain today after French equality minister Marlene Schiappa was mocked for identifying as sapiosexual.

Author Nichi Hodgson had earlier appeared on GMB and defended the term, saying she is also bisexual, as she explained: “The definition means intelligence first then attraction. I date men and women and identify as bisexual, and I realised the thing that linked all people that I have dated has been their brains.”
She added: “We know a certain percentage of the population is sapiosexual. It’s always existed we just didn’t have a word for it.”
And after Ronson, 44, heard the debate as he waited to go on air back stage, he told producers that he is also sapiosexual.
The Oscar-winning song writer has dated a string of beautiful women in the past and recently divorced French actress Joséphine de La Baume, 34.

After chatting to the star about his new heartbreak album Late Night Feelings, Kate Garraway remarked: “Now we know you are single, and Mark has got very involved in our debate backstage.”
Turning to Ronson, she added: “You are identifying as a man who likes intellect?”
He replied: “Yeah I didn’t know that there was a word for it.
“We were all arguing backstage in the dressing room. With a couple of your producers. And yes I feel like I am identifying as sapiosexual.”
Ben Shephard remarked: “So you are coming out as sapiosexual. Out and proud on Good Morning Britain.”
The writer met his stunning ex-wife Joséphine when she appeared in the music video for The Bike Song.
Four months after splitting from his wife he started dating New York singer Samantha Urbani.
Mark was previously engaged to the actress-singer Rashida Jones from 2003-2004.
