Sorry about this but I couldn't be arsed to make four seperate posts and my attempts to link these items are futile but...whatever...
Betty pointed me in the direction of Maggie's interview with Entertainment Weekly. Read it HERE. I'd like to pull out this quote from it:
''Maggie is this tremendously intelligent and alive and funny actor,'' says
Secretary director Steven Shainberg. ''There are few good parts for
women, ever. It's particularly hard when you're not, you know, Kate
Bosworth, who's fine and all that. But Maggie doesn't look like that
and isn't like that. She tries to find [projects] that have a little bit
Damn straight! It's about time someone questioned Kate Bosworth's mere existence in britpopbaby's extensive actor database. And while we're bitching about Kate Bosworth...
Speaking of shit, in that I don't want to start a shit storm but a reader messaged me a link to this article: Rumor Has It: The Gay Gossip Mill in the Age of Blogging posted at AfterElton.com. If you're not interested in all the gay rumours then feel free to ignore it but if you are read it HERE. I just thought some folks would wanna chat about it because of our current Ted C discussion (well mine, wtbgirl and The Bearded Lady's current discussion).

We can find hundreds of pictures of Jake in spandex on the Internet, but
all that makes him, I believe, is a straight man in "gay" clothing. He can
ride a bike with Lance Armstrong and, yes, play the bottom to Heath

John in a pup tent on George Michael's front lawn, if the occasion
arises, but that won't make him gay … or British, for that matter.
What the gossip might make him, though, is angry.
Jake's got to be telling Andy Towle, a blogger on a tongue-in-cheek
mission to make Jake gay, to get a life. Do these stars have a right
to be upset, or is the rumor mill a price they must pay for being
famous? Both, I suppose, but when is enough, enough?
Hey, what's wrong with being British? Okay, if you need me, I'll be in the corner, curled up, rocking backwards and fowards...
