Happy birthday to Kate Beckinsale, Sandra Bullock, Tamyra Gray, Helen Mirren and AE’s editor in chief and my spectacular wife, Karman Kregloe!
Yesterday Lindsay Lohan had yet another car accident. The out actress “tapped into” a stationary Mustang on Sunset Boulevard. Lohan was not injured but someone needs to take her keys away and give her a permanent bus pass.
Pixar’s film Brave was the studio’s first film with a female protagonist and first feature film directed by a woman. (That’s kind of shameful.) The film’s co-director Brenda Chapman dished to Ms. Magazine about being a woman in a male-centric industry and her reaction to some audience members thinking Princess Merida was a lesbian.
Chapman said, “I was surprised at first. Then I wasn’t. I’m happy that people can get what they want out of the character in a positive light. I think that is fantastic. But I do have to admit that wasn’t my initial intention. I just wanted Merida’s character to be strong, know who she was and what she wanted out of life.”
Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey has filed for divorce from her husband of five years. (This news makes me sad.)
Are you sick of hearing about Chick-Fil-A? Then take a look at 11 other fast food chains and their views on marriage equality. (And yes, this is a joke.)
A North Dakota newspaper is receiving some flack for refusing to list same-sex marriage announcements. Lesbian couple Kelsey Smith and Allison Johnson sent in their wedding announcement to The Forum and received an email from the paper’s editor Dianna Baumann stating, “I’m sorry, but at this time The Forum does not print engagement/wedding announcements for same sex couples. We will refund your $25 publication fee. Thank you.”
Well, f-ck The Forum! Congratulations to Smith and Johnson on their upcoming nuptials. And may they have a long, happy and super gay life together.
