Morning Brew – Wednesday, Feb. 8: Ellen talks Prop 8 and One Million Moms, Evan Rachel Wood to star in an erotic thriller


Morning guys!

Ellen DeGeneres doesn’t always address personal stuff on her show, but yesterday she discussed both Prop 8 and the One Million Moms who have been campaigning against her new gig with JC Penney. Here’s what she had to say.

Yahoo’s omg! blog took a poll I wasn’t aware of and apparently lesbians voted Sandra Bullock as their number one dream date. We should be writing more about Sandy if that’s the case!

French handballer Alexandra Lacrabère talked with about being out and how her teammates support her relationship with her girlfriend. As they should!

Marathon swimmer Diana Nyad contributed a great piece about how she does what she does on a KRCW radio show. Did you know she sings a song to herself 5000 times underwater?

Lost Girl fans, check out this interview Ksenia Solo did over at Collider. My favorite part:

And, working with Anna [Silk] is a dream. She not only is an extremely talented actress, but she is the sweetest and one of the funniest people I have ever met. We have a great time. We’re gearing up for Season 3 soon, and as the show progresses, our bond progresses as people, and as Bo and Kenzi. We’ve gotten to the point where we just feel like family. Like Anna says, you feel each other’s rhythms, so we already know what the other person is going to say, before they even say it. It’s definitely a dream, especially when you have to spend so many hours with someone. If you guys don’t have that acting chemistry, or that chemistry as people, it makes your job really hard. I definitely feel lucky that it’s her. She always makes it fun. It’s like a marriage. She’s like my husband or wife, in a way.

Bisexual actress Olivia Thirlby looks ready to kick some ass in Dredd. Lena Headey is also in the film, so it might be a must-see.

Evan Rachel Wood is going to work with Catherine Hardwicke again! The two first teamed up for Thirteen, and now ERW will star in Catherine’s Plush, “an erotic thriller set in the music world.” I’m so in! But still waiting on that Freeheld feature, Catherine.

Lady Gaga donned drag again for a new “You & I” fashion video she made as Jo Calderone. Hot!

Do you want a reason to watch Fashion Star? I’ve got one for you: Lesbian designer Kara Laricks who makes menswear for women.

The show kicks off on NBC March 13. Team Kara!

Allison Weiss and Rachael Cantu are embarking on a short west coast jaunt together in March. Too bad they are coming to Portland while I’m at SXSW!
