ROLLING STONE: Harry Styles is Rolling Stone's first-ever global cover. He talks about A LOT, but regarding playing gay in My Policeman:
So much of gay sex in film is two guys going at it, and it kind of removes the tenderness from it. There will be, I would imagine, some people who watch it who were very much alive during this time when it was illegal to be gay, and [Michael] wanted to show that it’s tender and loving and sensitive.
CNN: Chad Wolf has no shame about his role in the separation of minor children from their parents. These people get off on this stuff.

GR8ERDAYS: Mildred Kornman, who just died at 97, had been the last surviving woman ever to have appeared in a Silent Era silent film, having appeared in silent Our Gang shorts from 1926-1928 (and talkie versions from 1930-1935). There are no others known to still be living. The only two men are Garry Watson, 93, who never played a role in a silent film, but was instead a babe in arms, and possibly Donnie “Beezer” Smith, who is about to turn 98 if he is living. No confirmation on that one. It is possible there are Japanese actors still alive from Japanese silents, but there is no record of them, and if anyone else who was in a silent is still with us — they're keeping quiet.
Kornman was interesting, too, because aside from a very minor film career (her big sis Mary Kornman was the real Our Gang starlet) she was a high-fashion model in the '40s, gracing Vogue and Bazaar, shot by the likes of Irving Penn.
NYT: If you're worried about the direction of the U.S., try this on for size: Barre Seid, an electronics mogul, handed his company to Leonard A. Leo's conservative group — making it a $1.6B single donation to right-wing causes. Dark money, Dark Ages. Oh, and the whole thing avoided taxes. At all.
