Jodie Foster's Private Declaration Comments (12)

Jodie-FosterI took this shot of Foster at the Globes, warmly acknowledging her screaming fans

Jodie Foster has doubled down on coming out, making a rambling and nervous but ultimately moving speech at the Golden Globes. Make no mistake, this is a major deal. Yes, "everyone" already knows, and it could be said that she had come out in 2007 when she acknowledged her then-partner in a public speech. But not "everyone" really did already know ("they" never do), Foster is a film icon and she is also a privacy icon—a woman whose public life was embroiled in a stalker's assassination attempt versus a president.

Basically, a (defensively) private public figure like Foster is still out. That makes a difference.

Good for her, and for us all.

Visiting NYC in 1988 and being the good gay tourist I was, I had this picture snapped of me with those infamous ACT UP outing posters on C Street (there is a chance this was taken in 1992 instead, but...seems like it would be late for that?). At any rate, let's see how accurate they were:

A Little Hard On The Beaver Comments (0)

With thanks to Robert: The L.A. Times, in writing an article on how director Jodie Foster is happy with her Mel Gibson-starring flick The Beaver, could not possibly have written this accidentally.

Right?

Boy Culture Turns 5: My Favorite Posts Comments (23)

6a00d8341c2ca253ef00e54f16b6088833-800wi

Img_0736As of midnight tonight, it will be exactly five years since my first post. It's hard to imagine it's been that long, and a lot's changed—the tone and subject matter are different, how often I post, my limits (no nudity in a couple of years due to ad constraints). I've devoted a crazy amount of time and money and energy to this blog for a very small financial return (you couldn't guess low enough), but it's always rewarding to have this forum with which to express myself, keep my writing ability fluid, perhaps influence a couple of people here and there, share obsessions with strangers (in both senses of the word) and learn new things.

6wzn3lxTake That's Howard...can you believe this happened onstage at a pop concert?

Here are some of the posts that were most important to Boy Culture's history. For the uninitiated, some of the oldest ones refer to Boy Culture, the movie made of my novel; I started the blog at the time Boy Culture was being filmed as a way to keep people informed of the progress...and it all snowballed from there.

Some of these posts are milestones when it comes to the hits they provided but most are filled with original writing and/or photography and video and are just the posts of which I'm proudest. I hope you'll take some time to click on them and send their links around to others—and some time is what you'll need...

Go To Mel Comments (5)

PreviewScreenSnapz001

I don't usually like Joan Rivers, but I'm with her on this one—Whoopi Goldberg (and Jodie Foster, too) is wrong to give her buddy Mel Gibson cover. Joan's right that it's not about one-on-one relationships, it's about what someone says and espouses. Had Mel slipped up and said something offensive and apologized, that would be different. Instead, he's shown a clear pattern of being anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-Semitic, anti-Latino...the list goes on. Just because he can play nice with the very famous, rich black lady, that doesn't negate those things...video after the jump...

Drunk On Power Comments (11)

1018-jodie-foster
Jodie Foster is confirming that her BFF Mel Gibson will be making a cameo in The Hangover 2 because "he really liked the humor in that first movie so I'm glad he'll be in it!"

I'm sure he loved that "paging Dr. Faggot!" part from the first movie the most. I'm glad Jodie's glad.

I found The Hangover to be tedious and witless, and the series' glorification of Mike Tyson and now Mel Gibson says a lot.

Not-So-Eager Beaver Comments (10)

Ever since his El Pais interview in 1991—which led to him awkwardly addressing nine gay filmmakers (including Bob King, Rob Tate, Ted Sod, Lauran Hoffman, Nicole Conn and Cheryl Dunye) as some kind of pseudopenance—it's been clear Mel Gibson is a raging homophobe. Now, of course, we also all know what a raging anti-Semite, racist, misogynist and all-around lunatic he is.

SafariScreenSnapz001

All the more reason I'm happy that Jodie Foster stupidly decided to stick with her buddy Mel (they made a bad movie called Mavericks together and became pals—imagine what he says about her behind her back) and direct him in her big new movie The Beaver (the jokes write themselves) that now will be impossible to market.

Fuck them both. And fuck you, too, Whoopi Goldberg—I have lost a lot of respect for you in your lame, illogical, biased defense of Gibson. People don't get drunk and spew anti-Semitism unless they're anti-Semitic. And people who aren't drunk, but who tell their GFs they'll get raped "by a pack of niggers", are racist. Period:

Good grief, the rich and famous will stick up for each other over anything!

All About Steve Comments (14)

Wigstock has a sequel?

I'm not a huge Cher or Christina Aguilera fan, so I'm not sure what to make of Burlesque. The synopsis leaves plenty of room for doubt: 

Hi

I don't know...it all sounds like Glitter meets Showgirls meets a Very Special Episode of Will & Grace (hence Cher).

DF-45456_rv5_4

Renée Zellweger looks like herself again!

SafariScreenSnapz001 But I just realized this is written and directed by Steven (né Steve) Antin (pictured), who was one of the most memorable on-screen snarky assholes of the '80s. He was always playing a pompous little jerk, which culminated with his appearance in The Accused (I believe he's buds with Jodie Foster) as one of the rapists; he was the one who the older guy kept egging on with chants of "do it, frat boy" or something similar.

DF-25948_v05_3

Wow, Cher looks great!

Weird

Oh...wait...

Steveantin So forget about rooting for Ali aka Christina; the real success story—should Burlesque's November 24 release wind up foretelling serious awards consideration or should its b.o. be anything but stinky—would be in seeing still-cute Antin go from being pretend poisonous twink to for-real acclaimed (and out) writer/director.

Burlesque's director was its most interesting casting decision

So now I'm interested. More new Burlesque stills from Screen Gems after the jump...
