Toothy Tile Returns in...One Signed-Sex Blind Vice!

Another one bites the romantic dust. Sure, it's no secret that lots of Hollywood movie stars require confidentiality contracts — from their house cleaners, their assistants, their cooks and, yes, sometimes, even their lovers. We've mentioned this before.

Heartless as it may seem, some folks can't even get close to getting off unless they feel they'll be protected from any morning - after spills to the tabloids, thanks to whichever partner they happened to hook up with. Not really such the shocker there, once you think about it. But what's truly unusual is who we're told has now used this cold-as-ice, fine-print safeguard, you'll never guess...

Yes, it's our very own beloved closet cutie, Toothy Tile!

Love it, he's not so dumb after all, eh? I remember Toothy back from when he was getting it on in West Hollywood parking lots, for any cop to see. In fact one did see, but, of course, the Tooth got off, thanks to his powerful reps — sheesh, so predictable. But now comes word that Toothy's not only stepping out on the B.F. (unless this was done with his approval, perchance?), but he's doing it smartly, like, every other bigass, closeted dude in town does — contracts to sign, in hand.

Nice one, Tooth! The publicist-powered group you hang with nowadays musta taught you a thing or two, eh?

Oh, and you want the dirt from the guy who took his very own confidentiality agreement in hand and spilled the deets just the same? It was all lovely, we're told...the kind of loveliness that grows on ya, if you catch my naughty drift.

Oh, and that Toothy has something in common with Ryan Gosling: Such a cool demeanor, you'd have no idea the fire burning down below. None.

It Ain't: Ryan Gosling, Shia LaBeouf, John Krasinski

"Brokeback" Furor As Italian TV Cuts Sex Scene

Activists protested that RAI TV would never have dropped similar scenes had they involved a heterosexual couple, and politicians called for the incident to be discussed in parliament. RAI said it had aired the cut version by mistake.

"Brokeback Mountain" is a cowboy romance about two ranch-hand buddies who start an affair when they meet on the fictional mountain in the 1960s. The 2005 movie won three Oscars, including the best director award for Lee, as well as the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.

RAI's second channel aired the film late Monday. Gay groups and Italian media said the movie was missing a passionate sex scene in a tent as well as a sequence showing a kiss between the lead characters, played by the late Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal.

"I don't believe it was an oversight, I believe it was preventive censorship," said gay rights advocate and former lawmaker Vladimir Luxuria. In an interview with La Repubblica daily, Luxuria said cutting the key scenes was "like showing the Mona Lisa without its head." RAI said in a statement the film had arrived from the distributor already cut so that it could be shown in prime time. When it was decided to air it late at night, no one checked for the uncut version, it said.

RAI did not detail which scenes had been cut, but pledged to show the complete movie soon. Some commentators and politicians were not satisfied, saying the cuts would not have been justified even if the film had been aired earlier.

"It is grotesque that RAI censored scenes that have the same content as those seen in most prime-time movies," Benedetto Della Vedova, a conservative lawmaker, was quoted as saying by the Corriere della Sera newspaper. Luigi Vimercati, a center-left lawmaker, told Corriere he would take up the issue in parliament.

In overwhelmingly Roman Catholic Italy, skimpily dressed women are a fixture on many TV programs, while scenes of sex and violence in movies are generally left untouched.

Massimo Gramellini, a top commentator for La Stampa daily, wrote in a front-page editorial: "I would like to understand why a kiss between two gays ... should offend our sensibilities more than scenes of heterosexual sex or bloodthirsty violence."

Four For Friday - Kindness

#1 - This guy is an A list television star and probably B in films he has done. Probably not any higher than B list on name recognition though. Oh, he stars in one of those crime dramas. Anyway, for the past year he has just had his paychecks sent to directly to various charities in the city where he films his show.

#2 - I guess this actor is considered an A list television actor although honestly, it is just the name of the show everyone remembers. Anyway, our actor spends about 5 hours a week every week at local hospitals reading to kids who are there and playing games with them.

#3 - This actress is B list. Hit network drama which I refuse to watch. Totally in contrast with her earlier more famous television role, this actress has a big soft spot. Over the past few years she has arranged for about 20 disadvantaged kids to go to private schools. She pays for all the books, uniforms and tuition. It costs her about $200,000 a year.

#4 - This actress is also B list probably by definition but has A list name recognition. She is also on a hit network comedy. She and her boyfriend have contributed many tens of thousands of dollars to various food banks and other food programs and spend countless hours volunteering at them as well.

Oops. Sorry. No bad vibes intended as I myself took it up the ass last night and a good and not sinful time (well maybe sinfully good) was had by all.

If eveyone tried it maybe homophobes wouldn't get so damned hung-up on what they call "the sodomy."

If there's a slight chance Jake is bisexual, I'd love for him to hook up with Anne Hathaway.
Reese is just an awful choice whether as beard or galpal.
Of course if Heath was still alive, there's no question I'd root for them. Now they had chemistry.

straight men who have sex with men said...

"Straight Guise is about straight men who have sex with men (SMSM) who question their sexual orientation and are not gay. It is about the many reasons men engage in sexual contact with other men that are not about a homosexual identity.

Straight men cannot become gay and gay men cannot become straight. Also, gay men are not gay due to complicated childhood experiences. Science is increasingly pointing to the evidence that gay men are born that way.

There is a significant difference between sexual identity, sexual behavior and sexual fantasy.

Written from my perspective as a gay psychotherapist who has counseled thousands of sexually confused men over the years, Straight Guise shows how this phenomenon crosses all ethnicities and cultures. Not a week goes by when I don’t receive distressed emails or phone calls from heterosexual men who worry they might be gay and from wives who have discovered their husbands engaged in gay hookups and relationships or exploring gay porn.

Straight Guise intends to help readers just as I have helped my clients, first by separating the two types of men in the world: There are men who are gay and bisexual and then there are heterosexual men who seek out sex with other men.

The difference is one of sexual preference versus sexual identity. Sexual Preferences are about various desires, positions and fantasies one has whereas sexual identity is about how one self-identities in terms of straight, gay, or bisexual."

The straight dude’s guide to 'Brokeback'

Our intrepid gay columnist has sage advice for his straight brethren

You are a heterosexual man. And you have no personal beef with gay people. You’re educated and fairly socially liberal and occasionally listen to NPR and you don’t like to see anyone bashed or discriminated against. You’re no homophobe. You’re proud of yourself.

But your girlfriend/wife/common-law/female or whoever loves that adorable Jake Gyllenhaal has already stated her intentions. When it’s her turn to pick the Saturday night date-movie, you’re seeing “Brokeback Mountain.”

“But I am a heterosexual man,” you’re thinking, “very, very, very, very straight.” And you’re kind of freaking out as the release date quickly approaches — and even the expression “release date” is making you kind of jittery. You’re hoping to remind your female life partner that, while you feel gay people are very wonderful, colorful, witty additions to the human population and that Ellen sure is fun to watch dance in the credit card commercial and that Tom Hanks really deserved that Academy Award for whatever that movie was where he died at the end, that you are very, very, very, very straight and that it should exempt you from seeing Adorable Jake…um… do “it” with Heath Ledger. You really don’t even want to know what “it” entails because you’ve lived this long without finding out. You’re thinking the words “red-blooded,” as in “I am a red-blooded American male, etc,” don’t sound so retro anymore.

And yet, you’re still going to see it whether you like it or not. This necessarily presents a dilemma: how to make her happy and endure your first gay-themed movie where guys actually make out on a very big screen right in front of your face? And that’s where I come in. I’m a red-blooded American male homosexual movie critic who’s already seen “Brokeback Mountain.” And I could just tell you how great the film is, that it’s really powerful and moving and all that, but that isn’t what you want to hear. So I have some viewing tips for you, my straight brothers. I promise I’m only here to help…

1. Accept the fact that this is all your fault in the first place
You were the one who was all excited to take your ladyfriend to “Jarhead” anyway and when you got there and saw that it consisted of lot of AJ (how this article will refer to Adorable Jake from here on) running around all sweaty, muscular and shirtless in the desert, doing a sexy dance wearing nothing but a Santa Claus cap over his “area” and then simulating a big gay orgy with his fellow grunts, you were like, “When does the killing start in this movie?” while your woman thought, “Oh yes, more Santa Dancing please.” You brought it on yourself.

2. Realize now that you have to shut up
You kind of have no idea how important it is for you to shut up. But it’s crucial. I was recently at a press screening for another movie and I overheard four guys in the theater lobby talking about “Brokeback.” They were resolute in their refusal to go see it and they couldn’t stop loudly one-upping each other about how they had no interest, were not “curious,” and were, in the words of the loudest guy in the group, “straight as that wall over there.” Oh, the wall with poster for the Big Gay Cowboy Movie on it? That straight wall? Well here’s something that everyone else now knows but that guy: he’s probably gay. Being silent marks you as too cool to care about how other men see you. It means you’re comfortable and not freaked by your own naked shadow. Did Steve McQueen go around squawking about how straight-as-a-wall he was? No, he didn’t. He was too busy being stoic and manly.

3. The good news — there’s less than one minute of making out
It’s about 130 minutes long and 129 of them are about Men Not Having Sex. So yes, maybe it will be the longest almost-60 seconds of your life, but there it is. Less than one minute. In fact, it’s 129 minutes of really intense longing and sadness and unabashedly weepy, doomed love story. In a very real way that’s a lot more porny than any of the man-on-man canoodling that made it past the editing room. But if you’re going to be a big sissy about it then you can go get her that Diet Coke and jumbo popcorn during the first major sex scene. And no plugging your ears and singing “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” either. All singing is inherently gay, is why. Plus you’ll be in a movie theater and some big bruiser gay guy might kick your butt. Then you’ll feel even more emasculated.

4. Remember that it’s a western
And the script was adapted by none other than Total Dude Larry McMurtry. That guy is the coolest western writer in the country. He wrote “Lonesome Dove.” You love “Lonesome Dove.” In fact, the only problem with remembering that it’s a western is having to ignore the fact that most westerns are about 1000 percent gay. If you think I’m making that up, just go watch “Red River” again.

5. They’re tortured and you get to feel sorry for them
Just like in that Tom Hanks movie, these gay guys get kicked around a lot. It’s set in the 1960s and the characters played by Heath and AJ don’t even know they’re gay. They think they’re just regular straight guys who suddenly find themselves all turned on by each other and, honestly, don’t even really understand why they’re awash in yucky, hypnotic love feelings. Actually wait… you know what? Don’t think about that too much. Better if you just forget about the “why” of it all and start rooting for these underdogs. Pretend they’re like Sean Astin in “Rudy.”

6. Anne Hathaway, who plays AJ’s wife, gets topless. The End
I think it’s fair to report this and here’s why: as a gay man, the only reason I even agreed to sit through the really stupid remake of “The Longest Yard” was because one of my friends told me you get to see the wrestler Goldberg in the shower. In one scene. That’s it. I sat through the whole thing for one scene. In that respect, my hetero pals, we are all brothers deep inside — it’s just a different brand of naked flesh that ignites our prurience.

7. And finally, it’s just your turn
Really, it is, and you know it. Imagine how many thousands of hetero love stories gay people sit through in their lives. So you kind of owe us. Now get out there and watch those cowboys make out.

Santa Dance in Jarhead screenplay was entirely gratuitous. Do you see a straight male soldier dancing naked in front of his fellow colleagues? What for? To be seen as their potential girl?

What are his expectations after his dance finishes? Does he invite a rape? What an absurd ideea of a screenplay!

Couldn't care less about the memoir.

I'm asking YOU, as a moviegoer, what do you think the movie character played by JG expects from his mates, when he strips down and belly-dances in front of a hord of drunken males?

Anonymous said...

I read the book, and I can't remember if that scene was in it, I think it was.

I see this as an expression of male homophobia and male bonding, in a group especially, and letting off steam because they were waiting and not actively engaged in combat, which they are trained for. Men can express fear of it this way, with humor and by putting it down and disrespecting it. I wouldn't be surprised if men in the service did things like this, and I've seen similar behaviour by men.

SMSM is simply a new term for helping men come to terms with the fact they are possibly gay or at least, bisexual.

Women of course, being the leaders in the field of honesty in general, can just admit they are bisexual and also helped by the media which encourages females to be sexy and alluring. Men cannot, too many macho stereotypes to climb over plus disapproval from relatives, peers, whatnot and a media that encourages them to be withdrawn, silent and strong. Showing emotion is "wimping out" and "womanly" - actually a condescending slam on women as well. So, we therefore invent a third state of being that men can "cope" with in today's judgemetal world: "the straight man who just HAPPENS to have sex with men".

Utter crap, as per usual, all a big white flag to hide the fact some dude likes guys and is bisexual. And what would be weird about it anyway?

Humans are all inherently bisexual, we just closet ourselves from teenhood upwards thanks largely to stereotypes, gender roles set in concrete and religion.

But... You are what you are. Just be honest with yourself and the rest will sort itself out.

"When these straight men have sex with other men, it is not about an attraction to the other man—it is about an attraction to the sex act," says Joe Kort (joekort.com), a licensed therapist in Michigan. "When asked about what they enjoy, it is never the actual man, but instead his body parts, the sexual behavior they engage in." Many of Kort's clients (who are overwhelmingly white) are straight men who have sex with other men (SMSM). He's even created Straight Guise (straightguise.com), a website dedicated to the subject.

He cites dozens of explanations for SMSM behavior: "Some have been sexually abused and are compulsively re-enacting childhood sexual trauma by male perpetrators; some have sex with men because it's easier and requires fewer social skills than those required to have sex with women; some are 'gay for pay'; some like the attention they receive from other men; some like anal sex, which they're otherwise too ashamed to talk about or engage in with their female partners." He acknowledges that some of these men may be bisexual or closeted gay men, but in his experience in treating clients over an extended period, many of them are not. He believes that when it comes to sex, identity and orientation, preferences, fantasies, and behavior do not always neatly line up in one category. More often, they are complex and even contradictory.

Mike, whom I found on a personals website, is 44, married, and works on Wall Street. He has been having sex with men for four years, and says he likes the closeness and the male bonding. Plus, "It's just less complicated than with women. We're both there for sex, and that's it." John, 35, also works in finance, identifies as straight, and is dating several women. But he mostly enjoys getting blowjobs from men: "There are less emotional complications for me. Many men will do things some women will not, and many men give better oral sex. I think men will exercise their hunger for sex and not deny that they are horny more so than women. They feel comfortable sexually bonding." Both men admit that their female partners don't know about their behavior; in fact, their families and friends don't know.

Way Out

Showtime develops coming-out series

Showtime is developing a reality series documenting gay people coming out to friends and family. The project is titled "Way Out." In each episode, a closeted individual reveals their true sexual orientation during a group meeting. Showtime has ordered a pilot presentation from Bryn Freedman, a former journalist and executive producer of A&E's "Intervention," as part of its effort to bolster its unscripted slate.

"It's a show that has universal appeal because everybody can relate to having part of their lives hidden," said Freedman, who is producing the project with Evan Weiss. "The show is all about getting to know the person -- why they have been reluctant to come out and what it looks like to be living a lie, (and) what it is like when people are trying to set you up with dates."

"Out" will show the person's closeted life, document the moment they reveal their orientation to friends and family, then chart how relationships are changed. Although still in the pilot stage, Showtime is enthusiastic about the project. Like the acclaimed "Intervention," which prompted controversy before its debut, Freedman expects that "Out" could provoke strong reactions.

"Before the show comes out, I think people will have a lot of concerns about it," she said. "But like with 'Intervention,' people see we're treating this subject with absolute respect and care and expect it will open a lot of hearts and minds."

Showtime executives have ordered a few other reality projects into development this year, seeking formats with grown-up themes that make sense for a network with a lack of content boundaries. The first title scheduled likely to hit the air is "Lock n' Load," a six-episode series that plays like HBO's "Taxicab Confessions" set in a Colorado gun store.

N'Fa working on Ledger tribute

HEATH Ledger's close friend and creative collaborator N'Fa Forster-Jones is trying to work out how to mark the anniversary of the actor's death.

Ledger, who died of an accidental prescription drug overdose on January 22, directed two video clips from N'Fa's solo album, Cause and Effect. The pair were long-time friends, meeting at age four while growing up in Perth.

``I don't know, sometimes I find things too much to write about so maybe something will happen,'' N'Fa told Insider at last weekend's Homebake festival when asked about the anniversary of Ledger's passing. ``We are trying to work out some sort of celebration. I am tyring to work out all of that, how to deal with it.''

Ledger and N'Fa were in the process of setting up a production company _ called Rocking Chair _ before his untimely death.

``Things have kind of changed since his passing,'' he said. ``A lot of things had to fold because it was sort of impossible. So all of us who have, I guess, been left in waiting are all just working out ways forward and trying to be positive and also keep his spirit alive because he was always filling us with energy and positivity.''

Prior to going solo, N'Fa fronted acclaimed hip hop outfit 1200 Techniques. He's spent much of this year travelling the world, working on no less than five albums, the first of which is a project titled Brain Wash.

Heath Ledger

The actor, who died aged 28 on 22 January from an accidental overdose, remembered by the director who was working with him at the time

Any time I try to describe Heath it becomes a series of clichés, because he was extraordinary and, unfortunately, most of those clichés have already been used up on lesser people.

I met him for the first time in LA around 2001, when we were working on The Brothers Grimm. He was a ball of energy, firing on all cylinders, and he had a magnetic quality. I liked him immediately and even though I hadn't actually seen Heath in anything at that point, I said to him: 'You're on. Let's do it.'

He was one of those blessed human beings who have the facility to do so many things at the same time. When he wasn't acting, he was directing music videos and supporting young musicians. He was working on the script for a film he was preparing to direct. He had an incredibly artistic side, and he was practically a grand master at chess. That's why, when he died, it was as if half of the world had collapsed.

He died halfway through the film I'm currently making, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. We had finished shooting in London on Saturday night. On Sunday, I went to Vancouver to prepare for the next stage and Heath went to New York. He was supposed to be turning up in Vancouver on the Friday. On Tuesday he was dead.

None of us could deal with it. It was impossible - that was the problem. It was absolutely impossible that this could be a fact. But there it was. I was working in the art department when I heard the news, and we stayed there all afternoon. At sunset, thousands of ravens flew over the window and I thought: those are the ravens from The Brothers Grimm, and they are all going to salute Heath.

In terms of his acting, it still rankles with me that he's dead because he would have been streets ahead of anyone else in his generation. He just kept getting better and better. He was fearless. On Parnassus, he was improvising all the time and it was better than what we had written. I don't normally encourage that kind of improvisation, but in a sense I felt Heath was writing this film. He was an incredibly funny performer when he wanted to be - his comic timing was just extraordinary - and then he could break your heart the next minute.

Usually, with actors, it's all about themselves. But it was never like that with Heath. He was completely supportive of everything else around him. He got better performances out of other actors - he just drew it out of them. He was utterly generous and always aware of everyone else, and he behaved as if there was nothing special about him - he was just a guy.

His physicality was extraordinary, too. I remember Monica Bellucci turning up to make Grimms. She went into the make-up room and Heath's picture was on the wall. She hadn't met him and I don't think she knew exactly who he was, but immediately she went, whoosh, to that picture. That was the kind of attraction Heath had. Women adored him and men loved him.

We've all agreed to call Parnassus 'A film from Heath Ledger and friends' because I don't think it is a Terry Gilliam film. I think it's something that his life and death has created. When he died, I said it was over. We can't carry on. But everybody said, 'You've got to carry on' - for the film, for Heath's last performance. It wasn't possible for any one person to replace him so we made the quantum leap and got three people - Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law. The Holy Trinity. They came in and they pulled it off and I think it works brilliantly.

When he died, there were all these nonsensical stories coming out about Heath Ledger, James Dean and River Phoenix, all destroyed by the system - but that's bullshit. What happened was an absurd accident. I still don't understand it. I know he was exhausted - the last thing he said was that he was so tired and just wanted to sleep. You actually think at certain times angels come down to earth and Heath might have been one of them. And then he's gone and you think: this is all wrong, all the other people should be dead. He should be leading us all into a wonderful world of adventure.

On Movies: Winslet double-dips

...
As for Revolutionary Road, Winslet says that there was no downside to having her husband on board, even if it meant going home at the end of the day and talking shop.

"The only thing that Sam and I had to deal with very early on was - and this was really more for him than for me - was that he realized that I live it and breathe it 24/7. And whilst he knew that about me - because on films I would come home and I would just get the kids to bed and then I would rant until I passed out - he had sort of forgotten that. . . . So we'd walk through the door having had an exhausting day of shooting and I would still be going on, and he would say, 'Babe, babe, let me take my shoes off. Let me have a cup of tea.'

"And I would say, 'No! I don't have time for that, I have to say this now. Now now now! Because if I wait to say it tomorrow . . . the thought won't come out the same. And I really want to know what you think right now about this.' "

Winslet had to explain to Mendes that if they weren't living together she'd still be on the phone, firing questions at him at all hours.

"I had to remind him: 'Don't you remember on Jarhead? Because I was there when Jake [Gyllenhaal] would call you in the evening and you'd talk for two hours on the phone,' " she says. "Even if we were in the middle of a dinner that I'd spent hours cooking, he would take the call. And quite right, too.

"And so I just had to remind him: 'Sorry, pal. . . .' And ultimately, he was very happy that we had that, because it made a big difference to the preparation we could do, the work, the forward thinking that we could do, and the constant debate about April Wheeler and these characters and what was going to happen tomorrow."

^^ IMO this description fits Jake and most men who have sex with guys who don't consider themselves as Gay. This is what I have said right from the start. If Jake comes out as gay in the NEAR future it would be welcome egg on my face, but I don't think so. There are too many men who fit the description. It's a secret world. " It's nobody's business but ours"! Does anybody remember that Famous line.

Just keep telling yourself that 11:44. Jake does not fit that, and there is not a shred of evidence that Jake doesn't consider himself gay. Just because he thinks he can't come out and still be a HW tool--sorry, A-list star--and is bearding doesn't mean he thinks of himself as straight.

It is clear as a bell that Jake is not having sex with the Chin, which means he probably hasn't had sex with a woman in what, 4 years now? Maybe longer if Kirsten was also a beard. And yet you expect us to think he thinks of himself as straight?

Your homophobia is showing, be it because you're straight and don't get it, or you're gay and revealing your own internalized feelings of self-hate.

^ You are truly stupid and your gay police attitude is working overtime. How the hell do you know that he is not screwing Reese or for that fact, Austin or the UPS guy? You don't know any more or less than anyone else here. If Jake is not gay I'm sure it would wreck your life. Get the hell off your all gay Cammander soapbox with that lame ass homophobic BS. I'm gay and know of many guys who act the way Jake is acting. And YES, things point more towards the guy being bisexual simply because he (is) with Reese most of the time. Anyone with a logical mind would understand this, even if he and Austin were together at one time or still doing the do whenever they can. But you can't see this because you are blinded with one agenda. He's gay and one of us. And they are romantically involved. You or myself have no concrete evidence of him being gay or bi, so I can only go with my intuition and what I do see. And I have not seen him with Austin for over a year and a half. And, if Reeke is fake, there is still a good chance that they have got past 1st, 2nd and many base if you can comprehend what I'm saying. It's just very logical. Sure you have you intuition also, and that's all it is really, but most things point to him being interested in both sexes, but only being open with the hetro aspect. I gather you are gay also and have never had an interest in the opposite sex. Well, I just say to you, the posts above are REAL, and that world of men not identifying as gay but being interested in the same sex is larger than people think. The world is much complex and larger than you. Maybe you will learn this someday. Until then, Stop the Stupid homophobic post.

WILL 'I AM' 2

WILL Smith has sequel fever. The box-office magnet is in talks to finalize follow-ups to both "Hancock" and "I Am Legend." A Hollywood insider said, "He is ready to do both. Producers are just trying to get Charlize Theron to sign on for the 'Hancock' sequel." As for "I Am Legend," it will be more of a prequel as Smith's character died at the end of the zombies-take-Manhattan movie. "It will be about how the disease spreads and the fall of the last great American city. It will also develop the relationship between Will's character and his wife." A rep for Smith said, "There have been talks about both of these projects."

Milk Robbed of Globes

When my friend at Focus Features told me I'd love Milk a few months before it came out, I was pretty skeptical. I figured he was just drinking the company, um... milk.

Sure I'm a diehard liberal and all (pro gay rights, a former political organizer, etc.) but I cringed at the idea of what I thought would be another heavy-handed, preaching-to-the-choir, eat-your-vegetables, Oscar-bait message movie. We'd all have to sit through it and applaud because we love and support our gay friends -- not because it's actually a good movie.

Plus, it was Sean Penn of all people. Love the guy, but he's kind of a blowhard, isn't he? And the last movie that he played a politician in didn't exactly turn out so great, did it?

To top it off, I was blown away by The Wrestler and already rooting for Mickey Roarke to win the Best Actor Oscar. Did we really need to give it to Sean Penn again?

Well, I was wrong. Very wrong. Sean Penn nails it (even Milk's Queens accent, which I can personally attest to as a Sunnyside resident). But beyond that, the movie is nearly flawless. It puts most biopics to shame. And it really socked me in the gut while (sorry Harvey Weinstein!) The Reader left me emotionally cold.

I'm not sure what the 80-some-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press are sniffing, but they definitely snubbed Milk.

Penn was recognized, but no Best Picture nomination? No Best Director for Gus Van Sant? Tom Cruise gets a Best Supporting Actor nom for his lame white boy rap routine in a fat suit in Tropic Thunder and Josh Brolin gets nothing? Not even a Best Screenplay nomination for Dustin Lance Black who spent years valiantly trying to get his version of Harvey Milk's life on screen?

WTF?

My first thought was maybe the Hollywood Foreign Press has an anti-gay slant, but I looked it up and they gave the Golden Globe for Best Picture to Brokeback Mountain in 2006 while Oscar voters -- to everyone's shock and many people's dismay -- pulled the lever for Crash.

I'm not sure the real reason Milk got Globe-shafted, but here's hoping Oscar voters will redeem themselves this year. As Milk would say, "I'm here to recruit you!"

[BTW, I'm taking an educated guess that a movie with Sean Penn featuring graphic gay sex scenes is near the very bottom of his list, but if there's one movie I wish I could force my Republican uncle in Missouri to watch -- Clockwork Orange style - this year its Milk. Not because agree with the message, but since (to my surprise) it's probably the most moving film of the year and he's too decent of a human being (despite the fact that he voted for Palin) not to be moved.]

Scripter to Announce Winners on Gala Night for the First Time in Award's History

LOS ANGELES, Dec 15, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- For the first time in the 20-year history of the event, the USC Libraries will announce Scripter winners on the evening of the gala. Each year, the USC Libraries Scripter Award honors the author and screenwriter of the best adaptation of a literary work into a film. Scripter 21 will take place on January 30, 2009, in the University of Southern California's historic Doheny Memorial Library.

The Scripter selection committee has begun considering the year's 58 eligible adaptations. Among those serving on the committee are writer and producer Lawrence Kasdan; dramatist and screenwriter Tony Kushner; chairman of Phoenix Pictures Mike Medavoy; Fox Filmed Entertainment CEO Tom Rothman; Jennifer and Suzanne Todd, producers of Tim Burton's upcoming adaptation of Alice in Wonderland; and Spider-Man producer Laura Ziskin.

In all, the committee includes 53 members of the film and literary communities, USC faculty, critics and members of the Friends of the USC Libraries. Naomi Foner Gyllenhaal, Oscar nominee and winner of a Golden Globe for 1988's Running on Empty, returns for her second year as chair of the Scripter selection committee.

"Announcing the winner at the ceremony makes for a much more dramatic evening," said Foner Gyllenhaal. "And drama is at the center of any award presentation. This change also gives us a chance to really honor all the finalists among their peers at the event."
Also on tap for Scripter 2009 is first-time master of ceremonies and Golden Globe-winning actress Jamie Lee Curtis. Curtis --- whose films include Halloween, Trading Places, A Fish Called Wanda, and this year's Beverly Hills Chihuahua --- is also an accomplished writer. Curtis' children's books routinely have landed on the New York Times bestseller list, including her most recent, Big Words for Little People.

Rounding out the trio of major changes coming to Scripter 21 is a revision to the eligibility rules. English-language adaptations based on a series of books now qualify for Scripter consideration. Previously, only films based upon individual books, novellas, or short stories were eligible.
The amendment allows more diverse creative approaches to be represented among Scripter contenders. Under the new rules, films such as The Spiderwick Chronicles and Iron Man are now in the running for Scripter 21.

"As Scripter turns 21," said Catherine Quinlan, dean of the USC Libraries, "we have a unique opportunity to introduce new elements that create excitement for supporters of the libraries, lend greater significance to the awards, and honor Scripter's rich history."
Scripter is unique among literary and entertainment awards in that it honors the screenwriters of an adapted film as well as the author of the book upon which the film is based. Previous Scripter winners include the authors and screenwriters of No Country for Old Men, Million Dollar Baby, The Hours, A Beautiful Mind, and L.A. Confidential. Steven Zaillian, screenwriter of Schindler's List and many other acclaimed films, won the inaugural Scripter Literary Achievement Award in 2008.

Ryan Phillippe & Abbie Cornish's Down-Under Getaway

As his ex-wife Reese Witherspoon continues to get more and more serious with boy-toy Jake Gyllenhaal, actor Ryan Phillippe's romance with Australian actress Abbie Cornish took an interesting turn over the weekend when the pair hit the streets of Sydney over the weekend.

Ryan, who has all-but-admitted to dating Stop-Loss co-star Abbie, flew into the Australian metropolis on Sunday, where she was waiting at the airport for his arrival.

This is believed to be the first time Ryan has been Down Under with his Aussie sweetheart, and a report in the Herald-Sun claims that the Flags of Our Fathers star is planning on spending the Christmas holiday with her.

If you went by what his PR would like you to believe the guy is almost virginal for a young rich hot guy in his 20's.
So I certainly hope he has had more than the official dating history.

All you have to do is look at Jake in those pictures in Paris drooling over the blond guy and compare them to the total lack of chemistry with the Chin to see he can barely stand her, let alone get to 1st base with her. And fyi, I'm bisexual, which is one reason why I called you out on your nonsensensical babbling about Jake. People who are truly bi don't just hold hands with their beard.

Jake doing a string of women? What women? Except for staged photo ops at intervals you can set your watch to, he has not been seen with any women since Kirsten. PR digging up every photo of him ever taken with a woman since he was 5 yers old do not count as evidence. Actually, he is hardly even seen with Reese. Most of those mag and rag articles recirculate the same lame no chemistry pictures.

I've dated and had sex with women for years and most of my adult live and liked it. Also fell in love with a woman had girlfriend s or were married. Since I have not been with a women for close to 8 years and in a relationship with a man I do consider myself gay now.

As your point about the Paris pictures, true Jake seems to be staring at the guy with a lustful awe. Don't know how true it is though. Pictures can tell alot. Pictures can also be very deceiving. If you draw your conclsion that he's gay just because of that picture, then it's your choice. What I see is a man with a woman who he ((may)) be involved with sexually and or Just emotionally, but seem to destracted by the presents of a handsome man. Potatoe / PoTAToe!

If he's gay good for him and hopefully he will come out someday but when he is ready. Is there a problem with him being bisexual if that is his sexual orientation? Some here really seem to have a big problem with that. Surely it's not anyone (gay) here being a bigot towards anothers sexuality!!

My Left Foot director Sheridan hits out at 'arrogant' movie financiers

Oscar-winning director Jim Sheridan has hit out at the "arrogant" movie financiers who are currently milking the economic crisis. The Dubliner, whose film My Left Foot won an Academy Award for two of its stars, has told the Diary how he believes that some executives are taking advantage of the situation.

Sheridan said that movie moguls are demanding "more bang for their buck" and are being far more cautious about what projects they're backing. "It's hard to know how things will pan out. The box office side of things has gone up a bit, so the income side of it seems to be okay for now, but the financing side of it seems to be what's going off. "There are people with money but they're getting very arrogant because if you have cash, you're a lot tougher with it than you were a year ago," he explained.

But Sheridan, who is renowned for making off-beat movies, looks set to score another critical hit in 2009. He revealed how he has just completed filming on a big-budget film starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire.

Remake

A remake of Susanne Bier's acclaimed Danish flick Brothers, it tells the story of a man, played by Maguire, who is sent to fight in Afghanistan while his black-sheep brother (Gyllenhaal) cares for his wife and child. It co-stars big names including Natalie Portman and Sam Shepard.

Sheridan continued: "We were in Santa Fey in New Mexico filming it for more than five months and we had a fabulous time. "It's a great town and was good fun to make. I think that we're going to release that in August of next year."

The affable movie maker said that he hopes he'll be able to continue making films in which he really believes. "It's hard to know right now," he said. "I think like everything else, it's going to re-trench a little bit. "I have never really done commercial movies but that may change."

Family

Coming from a family of film-makers, his brother Peter is a renowned playwright and author who has previously written about the family's interesting background in a series of books. Two of Jim's daughters are also heavily involved in film making, with Kristen Sheridan an acclaimed director in her own right having helmed several hit movies, including Disco Pigs.

How? It is my experience that bisexual men do date women, but to the unexpecting eye or non knowing person, they seem to be boyfriend / girlfriend or husband / wife only. Remember most don't know about the person sexuality except a few, if the person is discreet. Yes, the same attitude and pattern are also a part of the straight acting Gay man who beards and wants most to think he is straight. Good exmaple is TR Knight. Most or almost noone outside of that show or insiders knew of him being gay. And almost noone paid attention to him although he was always with that Katherine woman. We know about him now because he is now out. Only Jake and his inner circle knows of his true sexuality. They may not know the truth either. Just saying he's bearding with Reese is not enough. only if you want it to be true.

Point is: bisexual men and straight acting / appearing Gay men actions are the same when dealing with women. You only know if you catch them or they tell you. Otherwise all assumptions.

Polanski and Portman to ‘Pitch’ Perfume
It’s art.

Francesco Vezzoli, the Italian video artist known for his lavish parodies, has a new project: a faux perfume ad starring Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams, filmed by Roman Polanski. It’ll debut in February at the Gagosian Gallery in Rome. “Lately the art world has become a place where there is a lot of effort to create desire, so I thought Greed”—the name of the scent—“was an appropriate theme,” Vezzoli says. He recruited Portman and Williams because they’re “two A-list celebrities who have never endorsed a perfume,” he explains. “Natalie plays the good girl and Michelle plays the greedy one, and they start having a catfight over the perfume. They bite each other, pull each other’s hair, throw themselves on the floor, and all of that is filmed by Polanski in his epitomizing style.”

Jake could fake it and look like he's happy to be with Reese, but he doesn't even try. He looks miserable whenever he's with her.

The trick to bearding is to adopt the on-camera "heterosexuality is everything" look when you're with the beard. He doesn't. Maybe it's his way of retaining a little integrity.

No More Mr. Nice Gay Penguin

The gay penguin couple at Polar Land in Harbin, China really wanted kids, but being gay penguins, their options were limited to well– stealing the eggs from other penguins and cleverly replacing those eggs with rocks. While an effective tactic (penguins, while smartly dressed, are not terribly bright), it angered the zookeepers, so the penguins were segregated off in their own protest pen to live sad, childless lives. That is, until visitors heard about the gay penguin discrimination going on under their beaks.

The Daily Mail writes:

"Angry visitors to Polar Land in Harbin, northern China, complained it wasn't fair to stop the couple from becoming surrogate fathers and urged zoo bosses to give them a chance. In response, zookeepers gave the pair two eggs laid by an inexperienced first-time mother.

'We decided to give them two eggs from another couple whose hatching ability had been poor and they've turned out to be the best parents in the whole zoo,' said one of the keepers. 'It's very encouraging and if this works out well we will try to arrange for them to become real parents themselves with artificial insemination.'

Wildlife experts at the park explain that despite being gay the three-year-old male birds are still driven by an urge to be fathers. 'One of the responsibilities of being a male adult is looking after the eggs. Despite the fact that they can't have eggs naturally, it does not take away their biological drive to be a parent,' said one. One campaigner who did not want to be named welcomed the move and said: 'It wasn't fair to stop them becoming parents and keep them apart from all the other birds just because of the way nature has made them.'"


Gay penguins are a strangely popular cause for the gay community. Most species of animals have homosexual members, but you've never heard of a children's book titled And Starfish's Regenerated Arm Makes Three, have you? Must be the tuxedos. Of course, we could just argue that anthropomorphizing animals to imagine their lives somehow relate to the structure of human society is inherently flawed and diminishes the beauty and grandeur of their own social systems and adaptations, but then where would the world be?

Without tuxedoed tap-dancing gay penguin daddies, that's where.

JEN'S BACKUP PLAN FOR A MAN

OPENING her movie on Christmas, the same day her ex-husband's film hits theaters, will be tough for Jennifer Aniston - but it would be much tougher promoting "Marley & Me" if Hollywood's most talked-about single woman didn't have a date.

In interviews for her upcoming flicks (she's also starring in "He's Just Not That Into You"), Aniston, 39, has been open about dating John Mayer, 31. But we hear she was also scouting other candidates during a lull in their relationship.

A few months ago, during a brief split between the duo, Aniston's camp was shopping for potential dates. "She didn't want to face the glare of being unattached while Brad Pitt toted Angelina Jolie around" on the promotional rounds for his release of "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."

Aniston "did not want to be single when her movie opened," one source said. "A friend of her agent was calling around asking for young men whom they could set her up with." But the attempt to find a replacement for Mayer was aborted when he and Aniston soon got back together.

The publicity blitz for Aniston has been fierce. A Vogue interview in which she called Jolie "uncool" for revealing that she and Pitt fell in love on the set of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" (while he and Aniston were still married) was followed by a nearly nude cover photo on GQ.

She admits in GQ she was clueless about Mayer before they met, and stumbles over the title to his most famous song, "Your Body Is a Wonderland." She said, "Honestly, I did not know much about him before I met him. I'd heard, you know, uh, 'Your Body' - that song. But what I can say is that I had no idea what an extraordinary musician he is."

Still, the two are trying to prove they are a for-real couple. At the LA premiere of "Marley & Me" the other night, Mayer told reporters, "I'm here to support my girl."

Too much effort? Most people would you do almost anything for 8 million dollars, including lie about their sexual orientation and pretend to be a step-dad for *very* young children. Add a small nervous breakdown, a career crisis, family disintegration, financial issues, lingering loneliness and a genuine friendship with a beardee who desperately needed emotional support herself, and you have the perfect prescription for paid bearding.

Michelle Williams Will Not Accept Heath Ledger’s Awards

Heath Ledger was nominated for a Golden Globe after his role as the Joker in “The Dark Knight” wowed the Foreign Press Association. (The full nomination list along with photos of Heath Ledger as the Joker HERE.)

The war over who will accept the award, should he win, has already begun. Heath is also a favorite to get an Oscar for his portrayal of Batman’s nemesis. The Ledger family is desperate to accept on the posthumous award. His father, who’s character remains shady and questionable, is begging to be the one to accept. Rumors that Heath’s baby momma is in the running are also abound. However, reps for Michelle Williams state that currently she is not going be accepting any awards on behalf of her ex.

“No discussions have been made for Michelle to accept nor are there any plans to take part.”

The studio behind “The Dark Knight” is pulling for Michelle to accept on behalf of Matilda. As friendly as the family appeared to Williams, they are furious with idea Michelle accepting any awards. A friend on the family insists it she is the worst candidate.

“Why would Michelle be involved? She had nothing to do with the movie. They weren’t even together when he passed away. Would you have your ex-wife accept your award? And they weren’t even married. [Director] Chris Nolan or [star] Christian Bale would make more sense. Michelle makes no sense. It’s like those rumors that she would go to the premiere of ‘Dark Knight.’ That was never in the realm of possibility.”

I can feel the outpouring of love and respect. I say have Jake Gyllenhaal shirtless and sweaty up there to accept. Bam. Everyone is happy.

Van Johnson, Closeted Hollywood Heartthrob, Dies at 92

Hollywood heartthrob Van Johnson died on Friday in Nyack, NY. He was 92. The mainstream media makes no mention of the fact that he was a closeted gay man. It's Merv Griffin all over again.

The NYT obituary:

"Mr. Johnson shocked MGM and dismayed his fans in 1947 when he stole the wife of his best friend, the MGM character actor Keenan Wynn. But by the time he married Evie Wynn, he was too big a star for the studio to punish. They had a daughter, Schuyler, in 1948, separated in 1962 and were divorced in 1968. Mr. Johnson did not remarry."

The L.A. Times:

"In January 1947, Johnson married Eve Wynn, the former wife of his close friend, actor Keenan Wynn. Johnson married Wynn, the mother of two young sons, in Juarez, Mexico, only four hours after she had obtained a Mexican divorce. (The marriage, which produced a daughter, Schuyler, ended in divorce in 1968.) Johnson's marriage had a profound effect on his youthful female fan base. A widely circulated joke at the time said that when Johnson's young female fans found out that he had gotten married, they wore their bobby socks at half-mast."

In the photo above, Johnson and Evie Wynn with Liz Taylor and Conrad Hilton at their wedding in Beverly Hills in 1950.

Evie Wynn's obituary in The London independent in 2004, went into far greater detail about her relationship with Johnson:

"Many of his fans were alienated when he married Evie the day after her divorce from Wynn, while those who were aware of Johnson's sexual ambivalence wondered how genuine the marriage could be. In 1999, when Evie was bitter and near poverty, she finally stated that MGM had persuaded her to marry Johnson, one of their top stars of the Forties. 'They needed their 'big star' to be married to quell rumours about his sexual preferences,' she said, "and unfortunately, I was 'It' - the only woman he would marry.'"

"In January 1947 Evie and Wynn were finally divorced, and the following day she and Johnson were wed. Although rumours quickly circulated that the MGM chief Louis B. Mayer had ordered the union to cover up potential scandal, the truth is cloudy. The writer Arthur Laurents states in his memoirs, 'A sunny male star caught performing in public urinals once too often was ordered by his studio to get married. His best friends, a young comedian and his wife, divorced so that he could marry the wife.'

"In 1960 Evie sued Johnson for divorce, citing cruelty and his causing 'grievous mental suffering', and a few weeks later she sued Wynn for 'fraud and breach of contract' in their property settlement and for failing to pay child support. She was briefly reconciled with Johnson and travelled with him to London in 1961 when he starred on stage in The Music Man, but the couple finally parted when Johnson began an affair with a member of the show's cast. Ned Wynn writes that his mother told him that Johnson had left her 'for a man - a boy, really. He's the lead boy dancer.'" Their eventual, acrimonious divorce (Johnson called it 'the ugliest divorce in Hollywood history') was made final in 1968."

There is no such thing as bi-sexuality

Geez blank-and-white much. Try reading a bit of Kinsey:

"Males do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats. It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories... The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects."

Kinsey would know personally. He had sexual experiences with men and women.
Some men may be a Kinsey 6 -- know they're gay at the age of 5 and never touch a woman but a hell of a lot will have a lot more varied desires/experiences.

the Kinsey scale

It's true that some of Kinsey's methodology has been discredited, and he didn't explore female sexuality as well as male, but that doesn't distract fron the fact he was onto something.

scientific said...

^^This is not to imply anything about Jake.
Kinsey only categorized people after taking hours of sexual history. Jake is unlikely to sit down anytime soon with any of us and do that!
If Kirsten was the last woman he slept with and combined with that rather hungry look at the blond in Paris perhaps he considers himself a 3 or a 4. I don't know but it's all more complex than that poster allows.

It's Tom Hanks vs. Mel Gibson as SAG Splits Into Strike Camps

All work and no contract has made members of the Screen Actors Guild a surly bunch.

While support for an actors' strike was already running thin thanks to the industry-wide burnout still being felt from the 100-day writers' strike in 2007-08, the current state of the nation's economy—not to mention the just-underway awards season—has Hollywood up in arms over what could be another potentially disastrous work stoppage.

A select group of A-listers is in favor of authorizing a strike, should SAG leadership choose to go that route, but nearly 150 big-deal actors have now gone ahead and publicized their avowed opposition to such a move.

George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, Cameron Diaz, Steve Carrell, Jennifer Garner, Charlize Theron, Matt Damon, Morgan Freeman and Eva Longoria Parker are among the bold-faced names found on a petition that was sent to SAG national president Alan Rosenberg asking the board to cancel a strike-authorization vote scheduled for Jan. 2.

Interesting story about Van Johnson and his sham marriage.

And interesting reader's comments:

Calling Van Johnson "closeted" isn't exactly fair. The more complex details are that at the same time he realized he was in love with a man and that his marriage was a very bad idea, he deepened a great deal as an actor and as a man. This was part of why he turned from his showboy roles to respected dramatic performances, as in The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial. The story among older Hollywood gays was that he made it clear he would no participate in any studio efforts to portray him as heterosexual, and was widely noted for his stance, and for saying that having an open homosexual life saved him. But he did not want to be the subject of profiles in Confidential (and unlike Rock Hudson, he didn't have a wide array of lovers), so he lived in a kind of middle ground. After all, it's not like any other actors came out in 1962. It's possible he might have come out later in life if anyone was still interested.

Well i for one can tell you that at 82 Van was VERY frisky and quite comfortable being Gay.

I used to work in a Restaurant on the Upper East Side and Van and his scaregiver would come in at lunch and always sat in my station and even at that age had Noooooooooooo problem hitting on me. LOL
---

If you can find a copy of Ned Wynn's memoir, "We Have Always Lived in Beverly Hills" it's well worth a read. Ned was Van's step-son. His mother was the wife of Van's best friend, Keenan Wynn. When the studio told Van to get married NOW, he said he'd only marry Wynn's wife and no other woman. Amazingly, MGM convinced her to divorce her husband and marry Van! And the rest is pure soap opera! If you made this up, it would be too over the top.

Milk

By Jayne Lyn Stahl

On Thursday night, I went to see a breathtaking film. Milk, as you know, chronicles the life and times of activist, and first openly gay elected official, Harvey Milk.

Apart from the once-in-a-lifetime stellar performance of Sean Penn, it was an amazing piece of filmmaking, and this from someone who lived in the Castro in the early 1970's, and who was in San Francisco the day Harvey Milk was shot and killed in City Hall. Milk captures the paradoxical nature of a city long thought to be liberal, radical, and progressive,and unearths a dark, provincial, conservative side which, in my youth, I came to experience firsthand.

In November, 1978, I was living in San Francisco, on one of myriad treks from New York which started back in 1972. My favorite haunt from the early 1970's was Castro Street where I rented an apartment back in 1973 right over Andy's Donuts. Even back in 73, the neighborhood was diverse --part-family, part-gay, part-outlaw, part-artist. Ah yes, those were strange, and bifurcated, times.

Everybody blended together well, but the vast distance between the polarized worlds was plain to see, a difference that is explored brilliantly in "Milk" when the film juxtaposes images of Dan White's small town christening with that of Harvey Milk's big city defiance of convention too easily misconstrued as deviance.

After a short junket back to New York, I returned, and found a furnished room in a palatial Pacific Heights flat which was owned by the widow of a prominent San Francisco judge. Elsie was a prim and proper woman in her mid-60's. The apartment was fastidious. I had my own bathroom, so the only time we saw each other was in the shared kitchen. Elsie didn't work -- she was clearly well provided for by her husband. Our bedrooms were on opposite sides of the flat, so I had much-needed privacy. But, every now and again, when I thought that she was out running errands, I'd bring home some guy for a mid-afternoon romp, and we'd frolic for a few hours, then he'd leave.

One day, Elsie was standing in the foyer with her arms folded. "Do you have such low self-esteem that you would allow some man to come and use you for sex?" she asked. I recall laughing, and saying "What makes you think he's using me? I'm using him!" So, clearly we didn't see eye to eye on things, I thought, but Elsie, through the eyes of a 30 year old, was a relic of a bygone era. At times, I wanted to see her as a character from Tennessee Williams play, or Ibsen; a source of amusement more than disdain.

Until, that is, the afternoon of November 27, 1978 when I came home, waited patiently for Elsie to finish up in the kitchen, but finding her there greeted her hysterically. "What's wrong?" she asked -- tears streaming down my face. "Didn't you hear what happened today? Mayor Moscone and Harvey Milk were killed. They killed Harvey Milk" I screamed, sobbing.

Elsie dropped the dish towel, and turned to look at me marble cold: "Oh, he was just a faggot," she said, "just a faggot."

I felt every ounce of blood sink to my shoes, and I felt like my feet had been cemented to the floor. With whatever energy I could find, I stormed out of the room: "I'm moving out now." I told her I couldn't live with anyone who used the word faggot, except affectionately. She told me I was paid up through the end of the month. "And," she said, "I have a month's security of yours." I told her she could keep my security, packed my bags, and went back east.

There are lots of Elsies in the world. Some of them are judges' wives, some of them are judges, some sit at the helms of Fortune 500 companies, some dare to lead our armed forces in battle; all of them will ultimately stew in their myopic infernos. Harvey Milk wasn't just a hero for gays, bissexuals, transsexuals any more than Cesar Chavez was a hero for Chicanos. Harvey Milk was a hero for everyone who has ever felt different.

When he stood on his soapbox on Castro Street, and screamed into the crowd "I'm Harvey Milk, and I want to recruit you," he wasn't talking about recruiting you to join his lifestyle. Harvey Milk was urging us to join him in daring to be ourselves. The film brilliantly intersperses footage with quotes from a letter Milk wrote which was only to be read after his assassination. "Give them hope, hope, hope;" his last words.

Being different has always been a dangerous affair, look where it got Galileo, Joan of Arc, look where it got Jesus. If he could be here with us now, Harvey Milk might agree that the struggle doesn't end with hope; it begins there.

Give them hope

There were just too many things in me that were broken that I didn't know how to fix, so I love my therapist because he took 13 years to sit there with me. I was very ashamed of seeing a therapist because I thought only crazy people went, and then, after about nine years, I asked him, 'Well, was I really crazy?' And he nodded and said, 'You were, but not any more.'"

There is a scene similar to this in the movie Hollywoodland. The head of the studio finds out through Private eyes that one of their top stars was giving kissing a man. The studio head demanded that he get married and they had a wife for him. It was get married or else. I don't think the actor like the alternative. The studios had henchmen back then. Do they still have them????

DL gossip:

Does anyone, other than DL, really wonder if Jake is gay? It seems like Jake and the rest of the world could not care less about DL's opinion. Why would a publicist even bother?

Don't kid yourself, this place is on every agency's radar.

They cared when Marcia Cross went live from here, they cared when Naomi and Nicole went live outta here. They cared when Kenny Chesney gossip started up from here, enough to marry him off. They care that gossip writers like Musto, Charlton and Perez, and other big hitters visit and then spread stories further. They care because peoplelike Perez are reaching British audiences via big magazines. They are scared off what will be passed on along the grapevine. All from here.

It's a veritable stomping ground for PR flaks and gossipers. There is something on almost every subject here.

Oh, and the person above who said they couldn't see PR bothering with such elaborate scenarios? Perhaps that's the difference between you working for a firm that only reps small-time clients versus a major who has the power, money and staffers to do what they want, when they want and how they want.

Sorry but this industry is almost as big as the film industry itself. An industry behind an industry, so to speak, keeping the wheels turning.

If you were an agency and had money and contracts wrapped up in a big star (not to mention dozens and dozens of people jobs), plus potential future earnings via films and other sponsorship paydays then you'd go out of your way to discredit rumors too.

I don't know why this is such a hard concept for people to grasp. It's basic capital accumulation - your actor makes the profits that you then put back into your business to expand and upgrade, making your agency bigger and stronger.

There are people out there actually paad to troll the internet and discredit gay stories, along with making clients look good, kind, friendly, all-round good human beings, even if said client is a total asshat.

It's a job, and somebody's gotta do it.

People article:

This Christmas will be a family affair for Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish.

The couple are currently in Australia, where Phillippe will spend Christmas with Cornish’s family. Cornish landed in Sydney Dec. 7 and then greeted Phillippe at the airport on Sunday.

Cornish says she is excited to bring her boyfriend home for the holidays.

"It's wonderful!" she told reporters Tuesday at a Sydney party to promote Calvin Klein’s summer 2009 collection.

At the event, Cornish put any pregnancy rumors to rest by donning a svelte, figure-hugging Resort dress and sipping champagne throughout the night.

To keep things fair, the couple spent Thanksgiving with Phillippe’s family, including son Deacon, 5, and daughter Ava, 9, in Delaware, where Phillippe grew up.

The kids will spend Christmas with mom Reese Witherspoon and her beau, Jake Gyllenhaal, caroling around the tree and performing in a Christmas Eve pageant.

It is the collective unconscious made manifest.

The collective unconscious is a part of the unconscious mind common to all humans. According to Carl Jung, the collective unconscious contains archetypes, universal mental predispositions not grounded in experience. Like Plato's Forms (eidos), the archetypes do not originate in the world of the senses, but exist independently of that world and are known directly by the mind. Unlike Plato, however, Jung believed that the archetypes arise spontaneously in the mind, especially in times of crisis. Just as there are meaningful coincidences, such as the beetle and the scarab dream described in the entry on synchronicity, which open the door to transcendent truths, so too a crisis opens the door of the collective unconscious and lets out an archetype to reveal some deep truth hidden from ordinary consciousness.

Mythology, Jung claimed, bases its stories on the archetypes. Mythology is the reservoir of deep, hidden, wondrous truths. Dreams and psychological crises, fevers and derangement, and chance encounters resonating with "meaningful coincidences" all gateways to the collective unconscious, which is ready to restore the individual psyche to health with its insights. Jung maintained that these metaphysical notions are scientifically grounded, yet they are not empirically testable in any meaningful way. In short, they are not scientific at all, but pseudoscientific.

PENN'S TWO-FACED WITH GAYS

NOT all gays are gaga over Sean Penn's portrayal of homosexual martyr Harvey Milk in Gus Van Sant's biopic "Milk."

In a cover story in this month's The Advocate, writer James Kirchick slams Penn for his political leanings, arguing that any adulation he receives from the gay community should be tempered because of his affection for Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chávez and Cuban strongman Raul Castro.

Chávez and Castro are guilty of flagrant human-rights abuses, Kirchick writes: "Gay rights are human rights, as Milk said, and Penn discredits both when he rationalizes illiberal ideologies as 'anti-imperialist' and rushes to the defense of thugs who posture as victims of the West."

Penn has long been a supporter of the dictator duo. In this month's issue of The Nation, he lavishly praises both Chávez and Castro after paying them a recent visit. He asserts, for example, "It's true, Chávez may not be a good man. But he may well be a great one."

Kirchick's story includes a quote from Human Rights Foundation President Thor Halvorssen, who says: "That Sean Penn would be honored by anyone, let alone the gay community, for having stood by a dictator who put gays into concentration camps is mind-boggling."

Penn's publicist, Mara Buxbaum, tells Page Six: "Kirchick's commentary about Sean Penn's cover story neglects to include that Penn in fact addressed the issue of oppression toward homosexuals in Cuba in his full essay which was printed on the Huffington Post site on Dec. 1.

"The Nation printed an adapted excerpt only, but made it clear that the full article was on Huffington. James Kirchick didn't do his homework."

so what? after so many years with Reese he probably needs to drink. he still has to deal with her on a regular basis.

what i don't understand is why Ryan never could make a hotter carreer in HW. His marriage with Reese might be awful at the end but she has a lot of connections and i'm sure he tried to use that fact on his benefit.
Maybe he is dumb after all, at least Jake seems to be a more practical man (but in an inmoral way)
whatever....

Everyone needs a drink after spending 15 minutes around Reese.

I know I do.

Why do you assume Reese has a lot of Hollywood connections AND was willing to help Ryan's career?

Just shows how desperate Reese is. First a substance abuser and now a gay man. Will she ever find the right person?

NO!

Most women think they can reform men, she is no different than millions of other women.

Love the story floated by Ryans people that he will be flying back home for the kiddies when in fact he will be in OZ with Abby. Nothing wrong with that but his people need to pimp Abby and his kids to show how "stable" he is when in fact he likes to party and get high in reality.

He really loves her and she says he's very supportive - that makes me laugh every time. She's so passionate about him!

Ay! Worst angle for Reese's nose, mouth and chin. Ewww.

"I just think he loves her" his producer pal Ryan Kavanaugh told People."

Yeah, right.

December 5, 2008

Ryan Kavanaugh, one of Hollywood’s most prominent film financiers, was arrested for drunk driving, speeding, and driving with a suspended license in October, while still on probation for an earlier conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol.

We don't know Ryan's plans.

BI

A year ago, this film star looked bloated, wrinkly and just plain old. Although he strikes you as an egomaniac who couldn’t care less what other people think, he was really genuinely hurt by the negative press. So, he has spent the past year or so buffing up his body. However, since he face was still looking old, he finally succumbed to the scalpel. Something called a thread lift to his face, a neck lift, plus some collagen in his laugh lines and just a touch of botox. Result: his body is in top physical shape again, and his face is far and away the most natural plastic work we’ve seen in a while. [BlindGossip]

Earlier this year, Clay Aiken's bff, music producer Jaymes Foster, had a baby after being artificially inseminated with Clay's lil' dudes. Word is that they were both so thrilled with the results that Foster is going to go through another round of IVF in the hopes of having another Claybie. [Perez]

Connecticut Says 'I Do' — Not Want to Ban Gay Marriage

A new Quinnipiac University Poll shows a slim majority of Connecticut voters support a recent state Supreme Court decision that allows same-sex couples to marry. Fifty-two percent say they support the ruling, while 39 percent oppose it. Nine percent are undecided. But voters strongly oppose amending Connecticut's constitution to ban same-sex marriage, 61 percent to 33 percent. [AP]

What a Liar/Idiot!
If this is what alcohol do to people, I swear i'll never have a drink again

Ryan left Delaware when he graduated from his fundamentalist Christian High School and never went back. He has no "buddies" from DE who could discuss his imaginary early substance abuse.

If you said NYC you might have been at least a believable troll.

I'm not defending Ryan (i don't really care about him) but Reese's fans are always willing to defame him in order to make the Chin look like the "good one"

Chin + Chin'fans = LOOSERS

At least Chin wipes her ass with $$$$ bills

Anonymous said...

one in particular sock puppet on IMDB claimed to be a friend of Reese's from TN and posted constantly about Ryan's substance abuse problem which would prevent him from having custody.

Just wait...he'll never be with those kids she won't allow it.

Ummm that turned out to be untrue. I actually thought the person sounded accurate but it seems like he likes to go out and tie one on and then he's fine the rest of the time. The chin fans like to clutch pearls.

IMO, i think it's just stupid to post something on the internet claiming to be an insider.Even if the poster IS telling the truth there is no way for the other readers to corroborate it and because of the anonymity and the legal emptiness that rules the web, the word of a real source and some random babbler have the same value.
and this is not my opinion, Ryan told me this in person ;)

The chin fans are delusional and naive.
