Afternoon Delight: Adele loves Lady Gaga’s body, Jodie Foster’s “The Beaver” heads to Cannes

Good Afternoon!

Happy birthday to Buffy’s Sarah Michelle Gellar. As we’ve previously reported, the 34-year-old former vampire slayer is set to star in Ringer, playing twin sisters (two Gellars are better than one) on the run from the mob. Sounds like a comedy to me!

Musician Sia started a very important forum on her Twitter page yesterday:

Yes, please discuss — but not here on AfterEllen.com.

People magazine’s Most Beautiful 2011 issue hits newsstands on Friday. Who made the high school-ish list? Easy A’s Emma Stone, The Office’s Mindy Kaling and Jennifer Lawrence. People branded Stone the new “face to watch.” I’ve been watching Stone’s face (and additional body parts) for some time now, so People is way behind the times. Check back tomorrow for our full post on People‘s Most Beautiful issue.

Mindy Kaling

Speaking of time, I wish I had a time machine to fast forward into next week because there is so much great late night television to watch. I will be staying up late with some of my favorite ladies like Rachel Maddow, who will be appearing Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Monday (April 18), Lena Headey will be on CBS’s Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson on Wednesday (April 20) and the lovely Jessica Capshaw will be on ABC’s late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (April 21). I’m hoping Capshaw will discuss her upcoming vows to Sara Ramirez on Grey’s Anatomy. And hopefully she’ll reveal where they are registered so I can buy them a wedding present.

If you’re more of a morning person then catch k.d. Lang tomorrow morning on ABC’s The View.

It’s official. Jodie Foster’s film The Beaver is a part of the exclusive Cannes 2011 Film Festival line-up. The world’s most famous film festival will also screen Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Gus Van Sant’s Restless and Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris starring Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard and Kathy Bates.

And speaking of Woody Allen, Ellen Page has signed on for Allen’s new untitled film project that is scheduled to shoot this summer in Rome. Rome in the summer sounds lovely, maybe I’ll have to vacation there at the same time the film is shooting to see if Page needs an assistant. I’m not above peeling grapes and feeding them to an actress.  The film also stars Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz and Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network).

Michelle Rodriguez and Lindsay Lohan have joined forces again (did you see them in Machete?) for Underground Comedy, out in theaters June 14.

If you love dance movies as much as I do check out the trailer for Go For It! In it, sexy female dance troupes face off in Chicago. Watch and get served!

Adele graces the cover of the new Rolling Stone Magazine and has been dubbed the “heartbreak superstar.” Adele discusses her terrible stage fright (who knew?) and her beautiful body.

Adele said, “My life is full of drama and I won’t have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like. I don’t like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if I had a really good figure, I don’t think I’d get my t–s and ass out for no one.”

She added, “I love seeing Lady Gaga‘s boobs and bum. I love seeing Katy Perry‘s boobs and bum. Love it. But that’s not what my music is about. I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears.” I agree with Adele. My eyes love Lady Gaga’s boobs and my ears love Adele’s music.

Lesbian/Bi Moment of Justice:

I dedicate this Afternoon Delight to the LGBT students at Vineland High School in New Jersey. Vineland High School had a ban on all LGBT websites on its school computers and after many complaints from students and staff (and pressure from the American Civil Liberties Union) the ban was lifted on March 31. Congratulations to all those who fought for this victory. You are my heroes! (Well, you and Judge Judy.)

Finally, I will be performing tonight with out comedian Dana Goldberg, Ryan
Hill
and Shawn Pelofsky at the Ventura Harbor Comedy Club (1559 Spinnaker Dr # 205A Ventura, CA) at 8 p.m.. Maybe I’ll see you there!
