Director Sam Taylor-Johnson On Her Marriage To A Younger Man

wenn31376687-500x750

Sam Taylor-Johnson is mostly known as the woman behind the first cinematic adaption of Fifty Shades Of Grey. It made scads of money, but the reviews were execrable. And apparently, E.L. James, the fan-fic authoress who somehow stumbled upon millions with the book, was a giant canker sore with which to deal during production.

But all of this aside, Sam is married to actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson. He looks like this. Do you think she gives a shit about how nobody except sopping-wet matrons liked her movie? She gets on that on the regular. And she’s still looking between the couch cushions for the fucks to give on what anyone thinks of her and her husband’s almost 25 year age difference.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, it was obvious that Sam agrees with Blanche Devereaux (13:30) and everyone can just deal with it.

“If I gave a second thought to other people, I would be the unhappiest person, probably still in a miserable marriage.”

Aaron has spoken about their age difference before and said it never occurred to him because he has always “felt old.” If that’s old, I hope he continues to wither and gain decrepitude.

The couple met in 2009 when Sam directed Aaron in the John Lennon biopic, Nowhere Boy. Sam was 42 and Aaron was 18. They had two daughters together before they were married in 2012. She has two daughters from a previous marriage which ended badly. It must be hard for those girls when their step-dad looks like that. I’d be coming home from college for every single holiday, including Arbor Day! And, of course her first marriage ended badly! She wasn’t married to those nipples.

“People like to talk about it. I’m like, ‘Yeah, but it works better than my last marriage.’ It’s lasted longer than a lot of my friends’ marriages.”

The couple are currently working on a screenplay together which Sam will direct and Aaron will star in. I hope it’s called Fifty Shades Of Aaron Taylor-Johnson Naked And Doing Filthy Things.

Pro-Trump Protestors Interrupted “Julius Caesar” In NYC

article-caesar-2-0616

Making America Great Again” apparently includes a shrieky harridan interrupting a night at the theater. The Public Theater’s latest production at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park is of Shakespeare’s Julius Caeser. It’s getting a lot of attention because the character of Caesar is modeled after our current Commander-In-Queef. He’s got “a long red tie, a blonde bouffant, and grabs his Slovenian-accented wife’s crotch,” according to the New York Daily News. Sounds familiar. This isn’t sitting well with the pro-MAGA set, so two of them decided to bust up the show last night.

Right-wing blogger Laura Loomer (the star-spangled cleavage up top) and her camera person for the evening, “conspiracy theoristJack Posobiec, disrupted the proceedings by having Laura stalk on to the stage mid-performance and start screaming shit about the “normalization of political violence against the right!

“This is unacceptable,” she said in front of an audience that called for her to “get off the stage.”

You can watch below. Jack Posobiec is the charming gentleman holding the camera and screaming about Nazis at the end.

As you saw, after the audience and security “na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye“-ed Ms. Loomer, her buddy thought it was intelligent to compare satire to the Third Reich.

Producers paused the performance as security escorted Loomer off-stage, to raucous applause from the audience. Meanwhile, Posobiec, who filmed the incident, shouted, “You are all Goebbels!”

“You are all Nazis like Joseph Goebbels … you are inciting terrorists,” he continued.

“The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands.”

Wednesday’s scary mass shooting at the Republican congressional baseball practice left Congressman Steve Scalise in critical condition after he was shot in the hip. The hip is, and this was news to me, a place where you DO NOT want to be shot.

As it’s supposed to, the show went on. The Public Theater‘s artistic director, Oskar Eustis, sounded fairly pleased with the incident afterwards. They’ll probably sell more tickets. He told NYDN:

A couple of people set out to interrupt our show and they succeeded in interrupting our show.

“Our stage manager stopped the show and we waited for security to remove them and then we proceeded with the show to the great pleasure of the audience, who gave the cast a standing ovation.”

The stunt queenin’ Trumpette was arrested. After being released, Laura livestreamed a video of herself declaring her protest a victory.

“This is the price I have to pay and I am happy. I am not going to be apologetic for this. I am not ashamed that I’ve been arrested.

“I would do it again, really. I would definitely do it again. And I hope more people do it too.”

I’m not sure whether this will change the course of history, but I was jealous of someone involved in this incident. The audience! Do you know how many interminable theatrical productions I’ve sat through in my life where I PRAYED that some irritating protestors would stomp on from stage right and alleviate my boredom? God, there was this one community theater production of Les Miz that was like SIXTEEN HOURS LONG. It had me PRAYING someone would run up and shout something stupid at Fantine.

True to Form, Prince George and Princess Charlotte Steal the Spotlight at Trooping the Colour

Prince George and Princess Charlotte joined their family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the annual Trooping the Colour parade in London on Saturday — and true to form, the tiny royals totally stole the show. While checking out the ceremony with their parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, 3-year-old George and 2-year old Charlotte were caught looking excited, quizzical, and a little unimpressed; George showed off his iconic «over it» face while Dad pointed out the air show, and Charlotte — who made her balcony debut just last year — looked adorable as she stayed close to Mom in their adorable matching pink outfits.

The last time we saw George and Charlotte was just a few weeks ago, when they acted as page boy and flower girl in their aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews. We’ll likely get to more of the little ones in July, when George celebrates his fourth birthday with official portraits. See more of George and Charlotte’s most adorable moments.

Hot Slut Of The Day!

teacherwhotrolledtrumpheader2017

Nikos Giannopoulos, the special education teacher from Rhode Island who brought sass and glamour to The Orange House.

The Jabba the Trump administration hasn’t said shit about June being Gay Pride Month (and no, Ivanka Trump’s intern tweeting for her about it doesn’t count). Trump has tweeted about everything but Gay Pride Month and not only because he can’t spell out LGBTQ. This picture of Nikos at the White House was taken back in April, but he summoned several hundred waves of YAASSSes by sharing it on Facebook this week.

Nikos, who teaches 11th and 12th graders at Beacon Charter High School for the Arts in Woonsocket, RI, was named Rhode Island’s Teacher of the Year. So along with the other Teachers of the Year, he was invited to the White House in April. Nikos showed up and showed OUT in a rainbow pin, a statement necklace that I’m telling myself is from Joan Rivers’ QVC line and a black lace fan his partner bought in Venice. Nikos said in a Facebook post that he wanted to talk to Trump about his anti-LGBTQ policies, but none of the teachers really got to talk to him. Trump only said a handful of words to Nikos and called him “stylish.” Trump may or may not have been speaking to the mirror that was directly behind Nikos.

When it came time to pose with “the person seated at the desk,” Nikos popped his Kunty Karl Lagerfeld-approved fan and struck a pose (there’s nothing to it!) and easily became the best part of that picture (although, if he wasn’t in that photo, the phones, flags, Melania’s hot Dress Barn belt circa 1993 and drapes would’ve won that title). Nikos worked it like an opera diva playing Carmen or like my abuelita fanning herself during mass after her church’s AC went out.

teacherwhotrolledtrump2017-2

Nikos said a lot about that day on Facebook, but here’s a tiny piece of it.

As LGBTQ people, our identities are complex, but our needs are universal – to be loved, to be respected for who we are, and to be fully equal citizens of the United States of America.

When I think back to my time in the White House, I will not remember the person seated at the desk.

He went on to write that he’ll instead remember the teachers who have “overcome structural barriers of race, gender, socioeconomic status, home language, immigration status, sexual orientation, and much more.

And I raise the beat-up paper fan I got at a wedding to Nikos. If you’re going to diss a trick to his face without saying a word, do it with a hot lace fan!

Carrie Fisher Died From Sleep Apnea (And Drug Use)

screen-shot-2017-06-17-at-10-21-21-am

We’re still mourning the passing of Princess Leia (tn Carrie Fisher – one of the most delightful and witty actresses/authors/humans with whom the world had been gifted). I can’t pass an ornate gold and leather bikini and bondage collar w/chain without sighing deeply and sadly.

Carrie passed after suffering a heart attack on a plane in December of last year (aka “The Year Everyone Died“). The L.A. County Coroner’s Office has determined that her heart attack was caused by “sleep apnea” as well as other “unidentified factors,” according to People. The report also noted that she had “atherosclerotic heart disease” and that “drug use” was a factor. They’re not saying which drugs Carrie was taking but the report did note that “Fisher had taken multiple drugs prior to her death.”

This is all sorts of sad. Carrie was very open about her battle with drug addiction over the years. One of her books, Postcards From The Edge, is about her time in rehab. Her daughter, actress Billie Lourd from FOX’s Scream Queens, released a statement about the findings. It appears as though Billie is bypassing the “sleep apnea” and attributing her mom’s death to drugs and her struggle with bipolar disorder.

“My mom battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life. She ultimately died of it. She was purposefully open in all of her work about the social stigmas surrounding these diseases.

“She talked about the shame that torments people and their families confronted by these diseases. I know my Mom, she’d want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles. Seek help, fight for government funding for mental health programs. Shame and those social stigmas are the enemies of progress to solutions and ultimately a cure. Love you Momby.”

Carrie talked about battling addiction in 1987.

“I couldn’t stop, or stay stopped. It was never my fantasy to have a drug problem. I’d say, ‘Oh, f— it, I haven’t done anything for a couple of months, why not? Let’s celebrate not doing them by doing them.’ I got into trouble each time. I hated myself. I just beat myself up. It was very painful.”

Carrie (as well as her mom Debbie Reynolds, who died the day after her) are members in good standing of “The Hollywood Gone Too Soon Club.” They’re missed. These findings also remind me that I need to get used to that CPAP machine that I have been refusing to use because of the intense drool build-up. The CPAP is the worst, but I don’t want to die on a plane just yet. *frown*

Prince George Was Done With Trooping the Colour Before It Even Started

The royal family’s spectacular, annual celebration of the Trooping the Colour parade was a sunny, smile-filled affair, but there was one person in attendance who seemed a little, um, over it, to say the least. We’ll give you one wild guess who . . .

Yep, Prince George!

The adorable 3-year-old has a habit of letting his true feelings show, and while standing next to little sister Princess Charlotte at the parade, he unveiled some of his most hilarious facial expressions to date. Dressed in an adorable suspender outfit, George all but rolled his eyes at the Trooping the Colour festivities, while his mom and dad, Kate Middleton and Prince William, attempted to give him a few pep talks through out. Although we can’t know for sure what was going through the little royal’s mind, we have a few ideas . . .

Carrie Fisher’s Cause of Death Has Been Revealed

The entire world mourned the loss of Carrie Fisher when she passed away last December at age 60, and now her cause of death has been revealed. According to a report by People, Carrie died of «sleep apnea and other causes.» The Los Angeles County medical examiner’s office full summary of Carrie’s death revealed the Star Wars actress «showed signs of having taken multiple drugs» in addition to having a «buildup of fatty tissue in the walls of her arteries.»

According to the Associated Press, Carrie’s death will remain listed as «undetermined» because investigators were unable to pin point an exact cause. Carrie’s 24-year-old daughter, actress Billie Lourd, released a statement to CNN following the medical examiner’s report, writing,

«[She] battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life. She ultimately died of it. She was purposefully open in all of her work about the social stigmas surrounding these diseases. … I know my Mom, she’d want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles. Seek help, fight for government funding for mental health programs. Shame and those social stigmas are the enemies of progress to solutions and ultimately a cure. Love you Momby.»

The Bill Cosby Case Has Been Declared A Mistrial

wenn21941311-500x354

Bill Cosby, aka “a major sign that your childhood is not only dead but also a lie,” won’t be self-righteously scolding the younger cons in gen pop for their pants sagging too low in the back just yet. Five days of deliberation by the jury in his case for sexual assault has resulted in a mistrial. Hang on to your Jello Pudding Pops, this horror’s never going to be over.

TMZ reports that, despite the jury coming out and telling the judge they were deadlocked on Thursday and the judge sending them back in to get their shit together, they still couldn’t agree on Cosby’s guilt. The judge wouldn’t let them back into the Pennsylvania courtroom until 9:30 PM last night. They deliberated 12 hours a day for 52 hours, which was longer than the actual trial. The New York Times reports that here’s no word on how prosecutors will re-try Cosby on the three sexual assault charges. Keshia Knight-Pulliam is already selecting which scarf and top she’s going to sport on the next shameless courthouse sashay.

The hung jury means that the Montgomery County District Attorney, Kevin R. Steele, must decide whether to retry the case. Once again, he will have to balance the fact that dozens of women who have leveled similar accusations at Mr. Cosby had looked to this case as likely the only chance to hold him criminally responsible, against the value of pursuing a 79-year-old defendant who is fighting blindness, whose career and reputation are in tatters, and for whom a prison term could amount to a life sentence.

Cosby didn’t react to the decision except to rub his face with his hands. His accuser, Andrea Constand, reportedly just stared straight ahead.

“This is neither a vindication or a victory,” said Judge O’Neill who praised the jurors for their service and asked them not to discuss their deliberations. “They are yours and yours alone.”

The FORTY-PLUS WOMEN (!!!) who have accused Cliff Huxtable and his ugly sweaters full of lies of allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting them over his six-decade career are probably having a really bad day today.
