Bosom Buddy: Holland Taylor Is Out Comments (0)

I've made no secret of my adoration (here and here) for Holland Taylor, a great actress and classy dame and—until now—discreet lesbian. She's (finally! yay!) come out, saying:

I haven't come out because I am out. I live out.

Holland is rumored to be involved seriously with Sarah Paulson, and commented on the age difference between herself and her current partner (whom she would not name as Paulson):

There's a very big age difference between us, which I'm sure shocks a lot of people, and it startles me. But you know, it's not a statement original to me—I've heard it as a joke once in my past—but as they say, “If she dies, she dies.”

Setsuko Hara, one of Japan's most iconic film actors, is confirmed dead at 95. Her family for some reason kept her death a secret; she died September 5.

Hara was best known for her collaborations with direction Yasujiro Ozu and, later, a couple of first-rate Kurosawa films. She worked in film from 1935 until her retirement nearly 50 years ago, in 1966.

Baby Old Year Comments (0)


People who know me know I'm nuts about Baby Peggy, and film buffs may know that Peggy (Diana Serra Cary) is the last surviving actual star from the Silent Era (and is among the last dozen or so human beings verified to have appeared in a Silent Era movie in any capacity).

The Guardian contributes this affectionate piece on the indomitable lady, who made a fortune that her parents lost, but who has managed to stay upbeat about life ever since. She's 97.

Great coverage by He Said Magazine for Starf*cker, including a giveaway! Also flattering, Paul Russell Casting's blog has spotlighted the book as a “sexy & smart Christmas gift idea.” I'll take it!
