All the usual things have been happening at the Cannes Festival in France — evocative films with subtitles, beautiful people on the red carpet, awards, and lesbian kisses. Oh wait, what was that last one? My sister Ashwini revealed to me that the ever-stunning, ever-angelic Evangeline Lilly answered my prayers yesterday, grabbing a pink dress-clad lady on the red carpet for the premiere of La Princesse de Montpensier, and planted a wet one on her.
Perhaps the Valentino-wearing Evangeline was jealous that former Lost co-stars Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth Mitchell ranked higher than she did on the Hot 100. (Michelle was #20, Elizabeth came in at #50 and Evangeline was toward the end at #71.) It’s a cutthroat world and a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do for lesbians and bisexuals to vote her in the Hot 100 — and I ain’t mad at her.
Coincidentally (or not), Evangeline’s gorgeous character Kate Austen will be doing all things badass for the very last time on the series finale on May 23. Perhaps it’ll even make me rekindle my former Lost obsession and tune in.
My suggestion to Evangeline Lilly if she’d really like to overtake her Lost costars in the countdown is to kiss more girls, as much as possible. What do you think of the mystery girl kiss? Is it a publicity stunt? Just a hello?
