Orange is the New Black to Return June 6!

Awesome news to any and all who miss the amazingly lesbocentric and oddly heartwarming comedy about creepy prison guards and the women they terrorize -your favorite show to binge-watch Orange is the New Black, returns June 6.

More post-Valentine’s cheer from the OITNB tree, not only is ’90s darling Lori Petty (do I even need to utter the words “There’s no crying in baseball”?), but Netflix has released a season two teaser. It’s under 20 seconds and reveals absolutely nothing in terms of plot, but on the bright side, there’s probably more to come.

Random fact learned while Googling the show: Uzo Aduba was a figure skater for 10 years. Picture Crazy Eyes dancing on ice and tell me I didn’t just blow your mind. Continue reading “Orange is the New Black to Return June 6!”

Anna Paquin For Bust Magazine, June/July 2012

Anna Paquin, star of True Blood and the second youngest person ever to win an Academy Award (Tatum O’Neal is the first) graced the cover of Bust for their June/July issue.

Lisa Butterworth’s interview reveals Paquin’s thoughts on labels and how, even after being condemned by judgmental eyes, she could find no reason “compelling” enough to not date her co-star, Stephen Moyer.

Now they’re married and she’s the stepmother to his two children. Good instincts: check. Brain/beauty: double check.

Disdain for Twitter: “I’d chuck myself in front of a bus for you, but I don’t really care if you put one or two shots of espresso in your coffee this morning.”

On modern femininity: “There are these very archaic stereotypes about female sexuality and what it means to be a woman. You’re supposed to pick a category – are you a girly girl, are you a tomboy, are you this, are you that?”  Continue reading “Anna Paquin For Bust Magazine, June/July 2012”

Charlize Theron And Kristen Stewart For Interview, June/July 2012

Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron appear in the latest issue of Interview Magazine for Snow White And The Huntsman and as usual, the photos are spectacular but the individual sit-downs with the two actresses are even better.

Even after picking and choosing answers, I’ve included less than half of the questions.

Elvis Mitchell does a brilliant job of exploring their careers and getting a very fluid and intelligent perspective into their craft and personal lives…

MITCHELL: When was the first time you remember working with a woman who you instantly connected with?
STEWART: Well, Jodie [Foster, in Panic Room]. But actually, the first person who hired me for a movie was a woman: Rose Troche, who directed The Safety of Objects [2001].  Continue reading “Charlize Theron And Kristen Stewart For Interview, June/July 2012”

Shirley Manson For Nylon June/July 2012

Shirley Manson has been in the business of rock since the mid-80’s with Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie, then the side project Angelfish and then Garbage. Manson is hot on the promotion trail for the new album.

That trail includes appearing on the cover of Nylon Magazine, a publication best known for its emphasis on music and, if you ask me, excellent taste in celebrity cover choices.

Here are some highlights, including the real reason for the band’s hiatus…

On taking a break after Bleed Like Me: “When we first came off the road, I felt that we had worn out our welcome as a band. We had enjoyed such a zeitgeist moment with our first two records – people were excited by us – and then the music scene shifted so completely.”  Continue reading “Shirley Manson For Nylon June/July 2012”
