With all of the talk about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, not too much has been said about Lisbeth’s bisexuality. Director David Fincher discussed it with CinemaBlend:
We start with the source material. We start with the book and [Lisbeth's bisexuality] is what the book described. I didn’t feel there was any need to put a frame around it. One of the things we were very particular about was when she meets Miriam Wu in the bar. We wanted that to be a moment of happiness. There are two times that you see her smile in the entire movie and one of them is when is she gets the attention of Elodie [Yung] and Elodie comes over to kind of say, “Why are you here alone?” I thought that was important. I also think that Salander’s sexuality is less of a ambidextrous thing than it is something that she has to act on. I think the tragedy is that friction is not a problem for her; intimacy is a problem for her. I know that, to me, was the important thing to show.
I can’t wait to finally see the film tonight.
Well this sounds just terrible: A new “bisexual bachelorette” is apparently the scandalous one on the new season of The Bachelor. In Touch reports that Monica Spannbauer “makes a move on” fellow contestant Blakeley Shea. Damn it, they might have figured out a way for me to watch the show.
MTV’s newest Road Rules/Real World reality show, The Challenge, pits exes against each other. The only girl-on-girl couple is Aneesa and Rachel, who I had no idea hooked up. Where have I been? The show debuts Jan. 25.
Ruby Rose posted a link to this Q&A with her saying she was interviewed by one of her exes. She also answered quite candidly, but that’s Ruby for you! She said of her New Year’s Resolutions:
Have a baby, release a record, travel, take my first holiday, move to L.A. Wow, that’s like 1 life change a month… lets make that the 5-year plan.
Ambitious, per usual. I can’t wait to have her in the States.
