Afternoon Delight: Linda Perry isn’t a fan of Katy Perry, Anna Paquin won’t take a picture with you in the bathroom

Good afternoon!

Happy birthday to Tori Amos (48), BridesmaidsKristen Wiig (38) and Loving Annabelle actress Laura Breckenridge (28).

Thankfully, Kate Beckinsale will return as the gun slinging, leather wearing, death dealer Selene in Underworld: Awakening. After 12 years, Selene escapes captivity (Han Solo style) and is back with a vengeance. Check out the film’s trailer below. Underworld: Awakening hits theaters January 20, 2012 in 3D!

Bisexual actress and Academy Award winner Anna Paquin has no problems signing autographs and taking photos with her fans but there is a time and a place. While at this year’s Comic-Con Paquin said, “I find it weird when people are offended when I won’t take pictures with them in a bathroom. I find being followed into the bathroom is a little odd. And it is even odder when someone gets upset when you are like ‘But we are in a bathroom, this is a private place!’”

I have a friend that followed Charlize Theron into a public restroom and waited outside her stall until she emerged. And, no, the “friend” wasn’t me.

As we’ve previously reported, Jodie Foster has teamed up with Kate Winslet for Roman Palanski‘s drama Carnage, based on the play God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza. Check out the NSFW Carnage trailer featuring a drunken Winslet and giggling Foster.

Queer indie artist Ember Swift and her partner are expecting a baby! Congratulations to the happy couple. Baby Swift is due January 1, 2012.

Molly Shannon is returning to television. Finally! The SNL alum will play Patricia Heaton‘s sister on the ABC comedy The Middle. The Middle returns Wednesday, September 21 at 8 p.m. EST.

House‘s Olivia Wilde and The Help‘s Emma Stone are the new “global brand ambassadors for Revlon” — aka they are going to put on Revlon makeup and hawk their products with their television and print campaigns beginning in early 2012. People magazine reports, “The duo’s first campaigns will be tied to the launch of new color cosmetics and nail enamel products. They’ll also participate in Revlon’s fundraising efforts for women’s health issues; the brand has raised more than $65 million for women’s cancer research in the past 10 years.”

In an interview with YouBeauty, Stone ensures us that beauty is more than skin deep. Stone said, “Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ‘beautiful’ — not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.”

In an interview with music journalist Health Daniels, rock legend Linda Perry shared her thoughts on the music industry and the “microwaveable popcorn” that is Katy Perry. Do you think Linda Perry was being too harsh or do you agree with the rocker’s criticism?
