Afternoon Delight: Jane Lynch on Jodie Foster’s Globes speech, Annabeth Gish joins “Parks and Rec”

Good afternoon!

Happy birthday Geena Davis, Emma Bunton and Cat Power!

Watch Davis and Susan Sarandon in the final scene from “Thelma & Louise.” I’m pretty sure they made it across.

 

Rooney Mara (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) is Vogue‘s latest covergirl.

The Randy Rainbow Show takes on lesbian matchmaking, specifically Jodie Foster in the below NSFW clip.

 

Speaking of Foster, TV Guide asked Jane Lynch about her thoughts of Foster’s Golden Globe acceptance speech and here’s what she said, “It was really moving and touching. I loved that she shared a little bit about her inner life with us, and what she said about her mother [who suffers from dementia] broke my heart. I like the fact that she operates without telling everybody what she’s doing. It was a big moment that she let us into her private thoughts, and I’m really grateful I was there for it.”

Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell graces the cover of  Girls’ Life magazine’s February/March issue.

And, if you’re interested, watch a behind the scenes video from Mitchell’s photo shoot.

 

The important documentary Anita, the story of feminist heroine Anita Hill, screened at Sundance over the weekend. More than 20 years after Hill’s sexual harassment testimony in front of the U.S. Senate Judicial Committee, Hill received a standing ovation at Saturday’s big screening. Anita will show three more times at the festival and all three shows are sold out.

Speaking of Sundance, yesterday HBO Documentary Films acquired the TV rights for Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer.  The film “chronicles the controversial imprisonment of three female members of the Russian punk musical group, who were arrested and charged with religious hatred after they performed a 40-second “punk prayer” inside Moscow’s biggest cathedral to protest the election of president Vladimir Putin in 2011.”

Rosie O’Donnell can’t stop posting photos of her newborn baby and fifth child Dakota. She’s one proud Mama!

Actress Annabeth Gish (Pretty Little Liars) will be joining NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Gish will guest star as Ben’s sister, Stephanie.

Tune into tonight’s episode of The Biggest Loser to see out fitness guru Jillian Michaels flex and yell (like she does every week.)

Video of the Day!

Have you seen the 2004 award winning lesbian film Sancharram (The Journey)? If not, rent or buy it immediately. In this coming of age story “Kiran is mortified by her growing lesbian desire for the effervescent Delilah, in an idyllic Indian village where arranged marriage is the only acceptable form of coupling.” The film is available on Amazon and Netflix.
