Afternoon Delight: Sophia Bush supports marriage equality, Nicol Paone on “30 Rock”

 
 

Good afternoon and happy Friday!

One Tree Hill actress Sophia Bush recently spoke out in support of gay marriage. On Wednesday, Bush attended the Global Green USA’s 9th Annual Pre-Oscar Party in Hollywood and had this to say:

When we’re talking about the ’60s, when my best friend couldn’t drink out of the same water fountain as I can because his skin is a different color than me…Now, you’re talking about a different best friend of mine who can’t get married even though I could get married seven times in my life and he can’t do that because he is a different sexual orientation than me?! That’s absolutely a civil rights issue. In a world that’s filled with famine and rape and murder, we’re going focus on a problem, so people want to say, with two people loving one another, with two people wanting to potentially adopt children who are otherwise homeless, really?! It is absolutely a civil rights issue. And anyone who says that it isn’t is misinformed.

Go Sophia!

A pixie-haired Dakota Fanning looks pensive in the poster for the film Now is Good. The drama, in theaters in May, follows Dakota, a girl dying of leukemia who “compiles a list of things she’d like to do before passing away. Topping the list is her desire to lose her virginity.” No wonder she looks pensive.

To lift your spirits, behold! Megan Fox is on the cover of Miami magazine.

Since I’m obsessed check out the latest commercial from the upcoming Hunger Games. Will this damn movie come to theaters already?!

 

Or if you feel like crying and being inspired at the same time then watch the below trailer for the documentary film Bully. Have you ever been bullied for being different, a nerd or for being gay?

 

Angelina Jolie might be the best ex-girlfriend ever (out model Jenny Shimizu still seems to like her). Jolie has penned the introduction to her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton‘s memoir The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts. The book is due out on May 15 and hopefully will include some private photos of Jolie sans Thornton.

The CW has renewed America’s Next Top Model. Smize-master Tyra Banks is creating a special “college edition” for ANTM‘s 19th cycle, set to debut this fall.

Last night Lindsay Lohan made an appearance at Domingo Zapata’s Oscar Art Show.

Yesterday comedian Paula Poundstone added political humor to her resume.

Saturday night out lesbian comedians Cathy Lewis and Erin Schauer take the stage at 8:30 pm at the Comedy Store Belly Room (8433 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA.)

Lesbian/Bi Photo of the Day!

In case you missed it, The Big Gay Sketch Show‘s Nicol Paone guest starred on 30 Rock last night as a young Colleen (a character typically played by Elaine Stritch). I’ve always thought that in an alternative universe Paone would be the perfect mother for Alec Baldwin

Have a happy and safe weekend everyone!
