Rachel Maddow brilliantly fills us all in on the folks making the oral arguments for and against Prop 8 before the Supreme Court today. (Fast forward to the 2:25 mark if you want to get right to the Prop 8 discussion.)
Last night Dame Helen “Go girls!” Mirren collected her Empire Legend award and in her acceptance speech spoke out on the lack of recognition women working behind the scenes in films receive compared to men. (p.s. I absolutely love that Mirren gave a shout out to the craft service department.)

Actress Charlize Theron will return to the big screen with an untitled crime thriller. I hope Theron plays a bad guy.
As we previously reported, Lindsay Lohan once again joined forces with Charlie Sheen (this is a bad idea) for Sheen’s FX series Anger Management. In their April episode, tentatively titled “Charlie & Lindsay,” Lohan will be playing herself and beds Sheen’s therapist character.
What do you think of Emma Watson’s Madame Tussauds wax statue? I love me some Hermione Granger but this statue is creepy.

On April 4, PFLAG will honor Professor X, I mean Patrick Stewart, as their Straight Ally of the Year! Stewart said, “I am delighted and honored to receive this award. From my earliest years as an actor I have always been proud of the support the creative community gives to all forms of human and civil rights.” (Did you know that later this year Sir Ian McKellen will officiate Stewart’s wedding to his long time girlfriend? Hmm, I wonder if I could hire Magneto to perform my five-year wedding vow renewal?)
This Friday and Saturday out comedian Jessica Kirson will be performing at Governor’s in Levittown, NY.
Tomorrow night, Kristin Chenoweth will stop by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and on Thursday the one and only Lily Tomlin will sit down with the ladies at The Talk.
Video of the day!
What was Dutch artist Bart Hess’s intention in creating the below short film Heart to Mouth? Hess said, “I want to create a tension between the body and material-almost as though they become one.” (p.s. Trish sent me this video so please send all questions and comments to her.)
