Morning Brew – Imogen Poots loved her lesbian role in “V for Vendetta”


Good morning! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. 

Boston’s WBUR has a story on being “Out, Proud and Old,” detailing the lives of LGBT seniors and the unique problems they face. Pay heed; this is our future.

Emily Schromm‘s new workout video with Women’s Health is now available.


Imogen Poots is part of W magazine’s new movie issue where she talks about her first taste of Hollywood.

“My first role was when I was 15, in 
V for Vendetta. I played a lesbian 
who passes a note to her classmate. Mostly, I recall that they had copious amounts of cake on set, and I spent most of my time in the cake section. 
I kept thinking, Dreams are real.”


I love when playing a lesbian is a dream situation.

Want to see photos of Martina Navratilova and Julia Lemigova‘s wedding? The brides looked beautiful.

The DVD cover of Pride has no references to the actual gayness involved in the film. Well maybe it will hope trick some homophobes into watching a really good film about how being a hateful douche gets you nowhere.

Nicole Conn has only hours go to in her Kickstarter campaign for her new film, Nesting Doll.

File this under weird interview questions: The Source asked Bad Girls Club housemate Blu, “Seems like everyone on the show is a lesbian, is that one of the requirements to get on the show?” While Blu said she does not no the requirements, she does currently have a girlfriend who was also on the show.

The Mary Sue thinks Gotham‘s Barbara Kean is a problematic bisexual, writing, “Barbara, in cheating on Jim with her old flame, isn’t just a traumatized woman seeking solace (although she certainly is that as well). She’s a walking example of society’s most hurtful stereotypes about —that we’re confused about what we really want, and thus incapable of holding down a monogamous relationship.” BTW, there’s more Barbara and Renee goodness coming when the show returns tonight.

Ellen Page, Hannah Hart and Tatiana Maslany all made Forbes’ list of 30 people under 30 that are changing Hollywood.

German lesbian film Two Mothers will be available on DVD on January 13. 

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and his wife Diane wished their daughter a happy engagement with her partner on their Facebook page. Congrats to Katherine Wintersmith Patrick and Alisha Marie Lemieux! (Thanks Lucy!)

Sara Ramirez is part of this promo to help you get over your TGIT withdrawal.


Musical group Sticky Biscuits has a song about an ex-girlfriend starring sock puppets. It is called, “Sock Puppet.” (Duh.)
