Emmerdale actress Michelle Hardwick has come out as gay and happy with her love Rosie Nicholl. She said her family and fans have been accepting and just wish she’d felt more comfortable to come out sooner. You can’t ask for a better reception than that!
Tegan and Sara discussed their career trajectory with the Ottawa Citizen, sharing three questions they wanted answered about the band before they recorded Heartthrob: “How can Tegan and Sara be a better band? What are we doing wrong? Why don’t we win Junos?” I hope they found that the answer was “Nothing, it’s just patriarchy. Damn the man.”

Brian de Palma said he put Rachel McAdams in the bitchy boss role in Passion because he loved her in Mean Girls. He also talked about the sexual tension between her character and Noomi Rapace‘s in the film:
What were they up to, is the question. They did all kinds of things that surprised me because they are very easy with each other, and all their kind of sexual stuff that’s played off each other, like when Rachel’s at the cocktail party and she’s sending Noomi over to interact with somebody, and opens up her shirt a little bit and says, “Show a little skin.” In terms of the kisses that they do, they tried a whole bunch of different ways. And they were pretty explosive.
