I never will talk about marriage and friends. There are only so many steps I can take to protect people I love. There’s only so much I can do to keep them safe. It’s kind of a horrible feeling to know that if somebody’s close to you, you put them in danger of being hurt, of being sullied — trivialized — just by virtue of knowing you.”
When Foster accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion pictures, she used her speech to address rumors about her sexuality and to plead for her privacy.
Queer singer / song writer Mary Lambert is hopeful for the future of pop music.
Ruby rose gets her trailer filled with crabs curtsey of Nina Dobrev – Following a surprise supersoaker battle the day before, Nina decided to put a tub of live crabs inside Ruby’s trailer for her to discover.
She captured the prank in an Instagram video, writing, “Don’t be so crabby, Ruby.”
Three character posters of the new Ghostbusters film have been released. For some reason Melissa McCarthy’s character wasn’t included, but here’s Kate McKinnon’s.
Beyonce’s LEMONADE was released on HBO this weekend, and in it she included some LGBT couples, and young actress Amandla Stenberg.
One of the least argued lesbian stereotypes out there is that we, as lesbians, enjoy a good lesbian movie. The problem is, they’re so few and far between, that we end up watching so many more bad movies, and that sort of sucks.
If you’re looking for some inspiration for lesbian movies with amazing sex scenes, this handy list should help. Let us know in the comments if there’s one you think we’ve missed!
Ruby Rose and Christina Ricci in Around the Block
This is one of those random ‘remember when that happened?’ things that only lovers of Australian cinema or under-the-radar lesbian movie scenes will have noticed; back in the depths of 2013, Ruby Rose and Christina Ricci got it on
Karyn Dwyer and Christina Cox in Better than Chocolate (1999)
Better than Chocolate happens to be a personal favorite of mine (and not because my high school crush turned me onto it). No, the chemistry between Maggie and Kim (Dwyer and Cox, respectively) can be felt from the very first day – and it mirrors that type of whirlwind romance we all secretly wish we could get in our lives, peppered with some brutal reality. Oh, and there’s a sex scene with paint that results in some glorious and slightly awkward wall art. What more do you need?
Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in Black Swan (2010)
Let me repeat: Natalie Portman. Mila Kunis. Sex scene. You’re welcome.
Laurel Holloman and Nicole Ari Parker in The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love (1995)
It’s not too often that we see girl-on-girl sex scenes in movies that aren’t just two highly feminine characters, and personally, I think that’s probably part of why I adore Better than Chocolate so much. But, TITAO2GIL, as I shall call it now, shows a super cute (and super young) Holloman, long before her days on The L Word, with the popular girl from school – and an adorable, amusing, and totally relatable “first time” sex scene ensues.
Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve in The Hunger (1983)
Move over, Twilight – bisexual women had their vampire-human love triangle desires quenched way earlier. This movie follows Miriam (Deneuve) and John (David Bowie), both vampires, and their torrid love affair with the human Dr. Sarah Roberts (played by Sarandon). Of course, when you’ve got vampires, and women who love other women, there’s going to be some happy lesbians in the crowd, am I right?
Angelina Jolie and Elizabeth Mitchell in Gia (1998)
Usually, TV movies and lesbian storylines don’t really mix (well, until much more recently). But Gia tells the mostly-true story of lesbian supermodel Gia Carangi, played by young Jolie. Mitchell plays her long-time partner in the film, and the sex scenes (which are actually surprisingly graphic, for a TV movie) are sure to draw you in. If you haven’t seen this one yet, make sure you add it to your own personal list!
Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly in Bound (1996)
Some types of movies have an implied quota for sex scenes. The 1996 mob thriller Bound definitely delivered – and then some. It won a GLAAD Media Award the next year for Outstanding Wide-Release Film – which is no surprise, given the reputation set by writer-slash-director team Andy and Lana Wachowski (the same Wachowskis who later worked on the Matrix trilogy). This movie is definitely a modern classic, and the chemistry between Gershon and Tina is clearly visible. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you do!
Elena Anaya and Natasha Yarovenko in Room in Rome (2010)
Let me put it this way: This movie is called Room in Rome. And it’s about strangers… in a hotel room. In Rome. It’s already implied that there is going to be sex, but the way the two end up falling into a much deeper connection makes it magical, and pretty much guarantees that you’re going to want to watch it again and again.
What do you do when you, the pastor’s wife and stay-at-home-mother, fall in love with a gorgeous lesbian actress and have to juggle the complexities of discretion? Well, that’s what this movie is about, and as you might guess, there’s quite a bit of sexual tension, eventually culminating in hot, passionate sex. Because how else would the movie move forward?
Ruth Vega Fernandez and Liv Mjönes in With Every Heartbeat/Kyss Mig (2011)
I hate to admit that I have not actually seen this movie yet (but it is on my “To Watch” list for this year, I promise!). This one tells the story of Mia and Frida (Fernandez and Mjönes, respectively) who start an inconveniently-timed affair – one which starts at the engagement party of their parents. To each other. Making them soon-to-be step-sisters. Now, I’m not sure about you, but that sounds like it has the potential to go catastrophically bad… And I am definitely interested.
Sheetal Sheth and Lisa Ray in I Can’t Think Straight (2008)
I mean… Have you seen either of these women? No further explanations necessary.
Avalon Barrie and Lyudmila Shiryaeva in Summer Lover/Sappho (2008)
This film covers the taboo love affair between newlywed Sappho (played by Barrie) and Helene (played by Shiryaeva) while the former is on her honeymoon. I know, I know, the “let’s cheat on my new husband with a woman” trope is overdone, and quite frankly, I agree. But these women are gorgeous, and realistically, her husband is actually kind of a jerk, so… I guess we’ll look past it this one time.
Valeria Solarino and Isabella Ragonese in The Sea Purple/Viola di Mare (2009)
Okay, I like a little realism and relatability in my movies (except my horror movies – please keep those as far away from real life as possible, please!). Whether it’s a realistic representation, such as butch queer characters, or historical representations – I’m in. The Sea Purple is a semi-true story about gender roles in the 19th century, and the complexities of falling for your childhood best friend. Sigh. Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s been there before.
In it, the actress comments on her celebrity crushes (Madonna, Jennifer Lawrence), being compared to Justin Bieber (“Justin has tattoos and I have tattoos. But we both make fun of it.”), and how she can’t actually “turn people gay.”
Her statements were quickly picked up around the web, espical the comment regarding turning women gay, which actually annoyed Rose.
She responded via Instagram on how some sites chose to cover the interview, specifically calling out publishers for teasing the more pliable parts of her quotes as clickbait.
I’m a fan of all these publications and the 100s of others that have used bizarre click bait headlines and taken a really light hearted funny interview with @galore out of context. But I literally don’t ‘hate anything’ ‘I don’t think airport fashion is trash’ ‘Nor do I think I turned anyone anything’ I just answered the questions asked.
Just read the link from Galore I’ll put in my bio. I said everything is a blessing, everything is complimentary and I don’t take it seriously. Also that I found Channing Tatum really hot in magic mike but sadly I didn’t turn straight. I also named basically all my friends who are perfect looking all the time and said I’m trash at the airport and they are heaven. So I don’t know why people can’t just use actual quotes from the article..Why make a positive article a negative jab.”
It’s a good question without an easy answer, though the fierce competition for eyeballs online is a pretty safe bet. And as to the “turning fans gay” callout? “I think everyone is somewhere on the Kinsey scale, the Orange Is the New Black actress said. “So to make headlines (most people don’t bother reading the rest ) appear like I’m shaming people about their sexuality or like I have any right to claim to know others sexuality is dangerous. I HOPE EVERYONE IS GAY THEN I CAN MEET TONNES OF GAY BABES!! Gay gay gay gay gay gay gay. Blah!”
Ruby Rose has dismissed claims she has the power to turning straight women gay, telling Galore magazine.
I’m one of those people who feels that everybody is somewhere on the spectrum. I don’t think it needs to be labeled – love is about the person.
When people say to me that I turned them gay, I just laugh, because that’s not really even a possibility. It sounds like I did something against their will in the middle of the night, as if I crept into their brain and pushed the gay button, then did an evil laugh and left them to fend for themselves—newly gay and alone in the world.
I break it down like this: Did I find Channing Tatum in Magic Mike to be extremely hot? Yes! Could I now turn straight for him without having previously ever had a desire to be with a man? The answer is, nope. Haha.”
Days later, Ruby Rose also posted about her own struggle.
As someone who suffers with anxiety, panic attacks, and periods of depression, I think Cara and Ruby sharing these things is a very, very good thing.
Yes, I get why some people don’t like it. There are people who think that someone who’s famous has no right to discuss such a big, serious topic.
And we don’t necessarily want famous faces being to be the definitive face people think of when they hear about mental illness.
I get all that.
But I’m of the opinion that celebrities sharing their struggles also does a lot of good.
When they admit that they’ve experienced issues with mental health, it does a number of important things.
One: It gets us talking about mental health in a big way.
Two: It breaks down the silence and stigma surrounding mental illness – because if we can talk about Cara Delevingne having depression, maybe it’s okay for us to talk about what we’re going through, too.
Also, when a celebrity speaks out, it reminds everyone that people who seem to have everything can be pretty miserable.
Depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, eating disorders – they’re not moralistic beings that judge how sad you should be, based on your current wage and living situation.
You can have everything you could possibly need in life and not be happy. It’s not a choice. It’s not being ungrateful, or moaning, or not realising that other people ‘have it much worse’.
It’s your brain malfunctioning. It can happen to you even if you ‘should’ be the happiest person around.
The face of depression isn’t just a person who cries all the time. They can be cheery and chatty and confident.
Mental illness is an invisible illness.
You can’t tell what someone’s going through just by looking at them.
When a celebrity admits they have a mental illness, it works to add another story and face to what we think of when we think of mental health and helps break down the negative stereotypes of what people with mental illness are like.
And for people going through similar stuff, a celebrity being open about their issues makes us feel less alone – and reminds us that we can get through this.
If someone with depression can battle through it, work hard, and be mega successful, we can, too.
My manager asked me to accompany her to events. She was scared people would not watch the show, her sitcom Ellen, because she was gay. It was an honor. I grew up with two gay aunts and a gay uncle. My Aunt died of cancer. She was a proud woman and she didn’t get proper care because she didn’t want to be away from her partner. Hospitals didn’t allow partners the same rights as a spouse. When you have someone you love in your life that is gay or a lesbian it’s very clear that they deserve the same rights as anyone else. It’s not about religion. If you don’t love ELLEN now — you don’t watch her show. She’s a great example for the human race.”
A North Carolina church is asking one of their Lesbian parishioners to divorce or leave her wife. In the name of religious freedom – made possible by the state’s horrid House Bill 2 – the First Baptist Church has “prayerfully asked” Kelly Toney via a letter to either renounce her homosexuality and divorce her wife, or else they “will have no choice but to take appropriate and prayerful action to address the standing of your fellowship with this Body.”
The award show – held this weekend – honoured TV, film, and journalism that offer “fair, accurate and inclusive representations” of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities.
Demi Lovato, received the Vanguard Award, while Orange Is the New Black‘s Ruby Rose received the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which was presented by Taylor Swift in a surprise appearance.
Queen Latifah also won an award for her role in Bessie and thanked lesbian aunt who raised her.
The night also marked Lilly Wachowski’s first public appearance since she announced her transition last month.
In her acceptance speech for Sense8, Wachowski thanked the “fabulous people at GLAAD” and then added a jab at the reporter who attempted to force her outing:
Love is a crucial thing for transgender people. It’s a tether. When faced with a rather simple proposition of whether you’re unlovable, our imagination falters. Too many of us end up on the wrong side of the existential question of love or oblivion. And so we ring that bell. Not just for everyone else’s sake, but our own.”
The Los Angeles ceremony will air on Logo on April 4. More awards will be presented in New York on May 14. See the full list of winners below.

US soccer star, Abby Wambach, was arrested over the weekend for not stopping at a red light and failing a sobriety test. According to her Facebook post, the incident happened in Portland, Oregon, after dinner at a friend’s house.
Those that know me, know that I have always demanded excellence from myself. I have let myself and others down,’ she wrote. ‘I take full responsibility for my actions. This is all on me. I promise that I will do whatever it takes to ensure that my horrible mistake is never repeated.”
Ruby Rose joins her xXx: The Return of Xander Cage co-stars Nina Dobrev and Vin Diesel in holiday celebrations.
Ellen Page reveals she is ‘happier than she could have imagined’ after coming out, as she appears in striking black and white magazine shoot for Malibu magazine.
The 100’s Eliza Taylor was on hand at WonderCon this week, to discuss how Clarke will be affected by Lexa’s death, preparing for Alycia Debnam-Carey’s final scene as Lexa, what’s left for the final episodes of season 3, and being an actor.
Three more years! Not quite a political term, but still plenty of time to do some interesting things. In some cultures, ‘May you lead an interesting life,’ is a curse, but I don’t live in those cultures. Here’s to keeping it interesting.
Thanks Netflix! Both thanks and you’re welcome Lionsgate! And kudos and gratitude to the stellar cast and crew and writers and producers and editors and musicians and mixers and shleppers… with whom I have the pride and honor of crafting this show.
Three more years! Three more years!”
Cindy Holland, Netflix’s vice-president of original content, added:
Jenji and her team have produced a phenomenal and impactful series that is both funny and dramatic, outrageous and heartfelt. Audiences around the world have come to love the ladies and men of Orange is the New Black, and we are eager to see where three more seasons will take them.”
The news comes in the wake of the show winning big at the Screen Actors Guild awards on Saturday, where it collected the comedy ensemble award and the comedy female actor trophy for star Uzo Aduba – both for the second year running. Aduba has also netted two Emmys for her performance as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren.
What’s cool is season 4 actually picks up right where season 3 left off. So it’s literally, it continues five seconds later, which is really great because at the end of last season…I was in the greenhouse, and there was all this craziness going on and it’s awesome.”
3. Alex & Piper’s relationship is still as bump as ever
As for Alex and Piper, Prepon also revealed that her character has an “F you Piper” moment.
That’s their relationship, and that’s what’s so interesting about them. They love each other and they hate each other, and it’s frustrating and passionate, but there’s definitely some vindication there, for sure. Piper thought she was crazy all season, but she wasn’t.”
4. Two queer stars have been promoted to series regular
Before season three even started, Jackie Cruz, who plays Flaca, and Lea DeLaria, who plays Big Boo, were promoted to series regulars. This means we’ll most likely be getting even more insight into Flaca’s and Boo’s lives – Yes!
Talking to Afterellen, Cruz said
Honestly, I get chills. I was a day player. I started with two lines. And my character just kept growing through the seasons. So Jenji just saw something in my character and was like, “We need more Flaca.” I think she told me that once, and they kept writing, and they liked it, so they kept writing more. So in Season 4 I became a series regular, so that was like kind of like a testament of myhard work and knowing that I did a good job. So I feel really good about that.
5. Stella may or may not be back
Season three breakouts star, Ruby Rose – who played Stella – was sent off to a worse place (max) by Piper. Though that could have been the end for Stella on the show, Rose gave us hope saying “It could go either way” – which doesn’t confirm it, but really doesn’t deny it, either.
6. There will be more Poussey and Soso – Go #Pousoso!
Poussey and Soso’s connection was just beginning at the end of Season 3, and they were all kinds of perfect together. In a recent interview with AfterEllen, Wiley hinted there is more to come for the potential couple.
I think we’ll see what happens with them. We get some screen time together. #Pousoso!”
7. Taystee Has A New Job
In the first Season 4 teaser, Taystee is enjoying what looks like a sweet new desk job. Her new career in answering phones may have something to do with the major changes coming Litchfield’s way… either that or someone at the prison finally recognized Taystee for the boss sh
8. There is a new cause
According to another report from TV Guide, the central issue that will plague Litchfield is prisoner overcrowding. Kate Mulgrew, who plays Red in the series, said,
[The overcrowding issues] are going to carry over to every nook and cranny in our prison, believe me when I tell you that.
What [creator Jenji Kohan]’s going to do that no other creator is capable of doing with such expertise is, she’s going to make you feel overcrowded,”
9. New alliances are going to be formed all over the place
Nearly every actor has mentioned in interviews that Season 4 will feature “new alliances.” What does this mean exactly? It’s hard to say, but the new inmates who were shown arriving at the end of last season will certainly upset the natural balance of the prison’s groups.
10. The odds of Nicky returning are strong
While it has not been confirmed, Screen Crush is one of several outlets reporting Natasha Lyonne, aka fan-favorite Nicky, is expected to return. Nicky was sent to max last season, and it was majorly upsetting. Everyone cross your fingers the rumors of her return turn out to be true.
11. Sophia’s story is going to take some unexpected twists
Sophia Burset’s story in season 4 is “challenging” according to Laverne Cox. Speaking about season 4, she told E! Online, “It was a joy to play and I felt like I was pushed in ways that I didn’t anticipate and it was really challenging and that is always wonderful as an actress. I had a really good time.”
12. More back stories are expected
Creator Jenji Kohan herself promised backstories for new people in an interview with E! Online. There will be backstories for characters who have already had backstory episodes as well, but anytime an unexpected character takes the spotlight, good things tend to happen. Maybe this will be the year Soso’s activist past is explored.
The 22nd annual SAG Awards took place in LA on Saturday, and a number of diverse shows – some portraying LGBT characters – picked up the main awards.
Queen Latifah led the field, picking up the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries – for her role as bisexual blues singer Bessie Smith in HBO’s Bessie.
The actress and singer, started her speech with a few arm curls of the heavy trophy and then paid tribute to the Bessie team.
But it was when she was wrapping up that her speech really sang. ‘Don’t let others put you in a box’, she told viewers.
“I hope that anyone out there who doesn’t come in a package that anyone says you should. Knock that thing away and do you.”
The cast of Orange is the New Black also had a very good night.
Uzo Abuda picked up her second award for Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her role as Suzanne ‘Crazy Eyes’ Warren.
The show’s entire cast also picked up the Best Ensemble award, and as the cast was accepting the win, Laura Prepon said, gesturing around her,
Look at this stage, this is what we talk about when we talk about diversity. Different race, color, creed, sexual orientation—I mean, thank you so much.”
Valiantly, most of the show’s ensemble managed to make it onto the stage, but sadly Rose could not join.
She did however post a touching tribute.
Meanwhile, two actors were honoured for their transgender-themed work.
Alicia Vikander picked up the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role award, for playing Gerda Wegener in Eddie Redmayne drama the Danish Girl.
On top of that, Jeffrey Tambor took home the award for Actor for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series for his portrayal of trans woman Maura Pfefferman in Amazon show Transparent.
I’d just like to dedicate this award to the non-Maura Pfeffermans, who don’t have a lot of cash, for their operations, for their medicine, for their freedom.”
This week, Jennifer Lawrence’s Glamour cover shoot and accompanying interview revealed intriguing insight into the actress’ thoughts about her nude photo leak and her history with Planned Parenthood, among other things.
However, one of the most talked-about opinions she shared, was about her personal style, specifically her comment that she prefers to dress like a “slutty power lesbian.”
That is literally what I say to a stylist. I don’t know if that’s offensive…”
Her comments have drawn mixed responses, with some members of the LGBT community expression that they find the comparison is offensive.
However, fellow actress Ruby Rose claims that Lawrence did not mean to upset anybody, and praised her for being a positive role model for all women, regardless of their sexuality.
Jennifer Lawrence is an amazing actress and an amazing advocate for women and women’s empowerment and the wage gap in Hollywood and so many amazing things. I think that is an easy quote to misinterpret or to pick apart.”
The OITNB star also added
But I know that she has an amazing sense of humour, and for her to say that, I know that would never come from a bad place. She’s always spending so much of her time supporting other women and the LGBT community. There’s no way that she meant that with any kind of malice. If it was someone else, maybe I would think into it, but because it’s her, I just know what she meant.”
Ruby Rose is the new face of Ralph Lauren’s Denim & Supply.
Shot in New York, Rose is also joined by artist Edward Granger and Justin Bieber’s reported new girlfriend, Hailey Baldwin.
In also her Q&A on the website, she shares her idea of a perfect day:
Get up and grab a coffee, walk the dog, hit the gym, and start my day. That’s in a perfect world, which is a morning that doesn’t start earlier than 8. I’m into spin classes and hiking. If I can get a surf in, then I’m living the dream.”
When I first started in the industry back home in Australia at 18 there was a lot of push and shove as to how I should dress, if I was allowed to cut my hair short, if I had too many tattoos. If I didn’t get a campaign or if I didn’t get a role, they would always come back to ‘Well, she dresses like a boy.'”
There has been a huge shift in the dynamics of Hollywood lately. Where once it was quite taboo to come out of the closet, now there are many men and women who are embracing their sexuality and being honest with their fans. It’s nice to see how successful and happy they are.
Read on to find the top 11 (out) lesbians and bisexual women who are active in Hollywood. These women might not represent the rest of us and our “real world problems”, but they have their own set of problems associated with coming out.
11. Amber Heard
Amber Heard is a beautiful young woman from Texas who rose to fame with such movies as Zombieland, Pineapple Express, and The Rum Diary. Contrary to some statements that have been publicized, Amber herself has said that she is not “out” – because she was never “in”. She also adds that she is “totally open” to love, and doesn’t want to be labeled one way or another. She’s just a woman trying to make it in Hollywood, and she doesn’t want people to focus on whether she’s with a man or a woman.
10. Clementine Ford
Clementine Ford is the daughter of Cybill Shepherd, both in real life as well as in The L Word. Their on-screen chemistry shows just how much the two have in common; they work so well together! But she admitted she hated growing up with a famous mother: “It was horrible. I had friends in high school who wanted to have sex with my mother. I’m not going to blame her for being beautiful – but it’s still gross.” Clementine herself is an out bisexual woman.
9. Anna Paquin
I’ll admit that I’ve had a big fat crush on Anna Paquin since 2000, when she played in X-Men. There was a brief period of time that I fell out of my crush with her, but it was recently reinvigorated with her response to body shamers. She stands up strong for the LGBT+ community and is herself a proud bisexual woman.
8. Lindsay Lohan
One of the most prominent child stars of my generation, Lindsay Lohan has had her fair share of struggles with fame, family, and addiction, but her relationship with the DJ Samantha Ronson gained her a fair share of publicity on its own. She has stated that she is not exclusively a lesbian, but she embraces her bisexuality and doesn’t let the negativity bring her down.
7. Ruby Rose
Ruby Rose has sort of come crashing onto the scene lately after her role as Stella on Orange is the New Black. The truth is, she’s been active for much longer than that, but it took the wide-reaching audience of OITNB to catapult her into the sights of a bunch of women who instantly began questioning whether they were really straight after all. She is an androgynous lesbian who identifies as “gender fluid”, and caused gender fluidity to be much more of a mainstream discussion than it ever was before.
6. Tila Tequila
There are likely to be many people against Tila Tequila being on this list, because she used her bisexuality to fuel the fame that was fleeting after she stopped doing nude photoshoots. However, she has recently come out as not bisexual, but rather a lesbian, and in some ways she is inspirational as a testament of what a woman can accomplish. She owns several businesses, has been featured in a number of TV shows, and even featured in an all-female sex tape. And yes, she’s a lesbian.
5. Kristanna Loken
Kristanna Loken is a model-turned-actress who burst her way into the lesbian limelight with her role on The L Word, playing Shane’s brief love interest, Paige. She has also been in a myriad of other movies and says she loves when people recognize her from her earlier works – but her role in Terminator 3 certainly catapulted her out of “anonymity”. She was quoted as saying “If the person with whom I connect happens to be a female, that’s just the way it is. That’s what makes my wheels turn.” This cements her position as a proud bisexual actress, paving the way for those who may be struggling to come out.
4. Michelle Rodriguez
Most lesbians and bisexual women see Michelle Rodriguez as one of the hottest women to pine over in Hollywood. She’s been a prominent action star, rising to fame with the Fast & Furious franchise, but she has also starred in such movies as Turbo and Avatar – although she is typically cast as the more handy type. Some sources say that she is a lesbian, but she prefers to keep her options open. “I’ve gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too fucking curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks.” Well, Michelle, that’s a solid way to look at it.
3. Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood is another actress that I’ve had a bit of a crush on for a long time. In 2011, she came out as bisexual in one of the simplest ways she could: “I’m for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl.” This has proven to be one of the easiest ways to get Hollywood to stay off your back about who you’re seeing, as we’ve seen from many other actresses – and although we have not uncovered any images of Evan with a woman, I’m certain they’re out there somewhere.
2. Chely Wright
Unless you’re a fan of American country music (or a close follower of celebrities coming out), you likely haven’t heard of Chely Wright. She was a huge name on the country music scene during the 90s, and she was one of the first country singers to come out publicly as being gay. She has spoken up for the gay community on many occasions, including her coming out speech: “I hear the word tolerance – that some people are trying to teach people to be tolerant of gays. I’m not satisfied with that word. I am gay, and I am not seeking to be ‘tolerated’.” Way to go Chely!
1. Ellen Page
Ellen Page has been a celebrity crush of mine since I first saw her in Hard Candy. She’s gorgeous, intelligent, and just a bit awkward, which of course had lesbians all over the world thinking that she was playing for our team, right? Well, she did end up coming out publicly in 2014, although she had been out of the closet to friends and family for much longer. She has been in a number of high-profile roles, where she usually plays a witty, lovable characters.
While we still love each other and support each other in every way, it is our mutual decision to part ways. Our break is not the result of any media speculation, and we want nothing but the best for each other. Thank you for respecting our privacy in this very difficult time.”
The next day, Rose broke her silence on her Twitter account, tweeting directly at the account for Dahl’s clothing line, Faircloth & Supply.
@FAIRCLOTHSUPPLY remains very dear to my heart. I will forever treasure our time together. I’m a better person because of all we shared.”
In response, Dahl, 27, tweeted back,
You have brought me to my best and I will always love you. I can’t wait to see what the future brings for us.”
Australian DJ-now-actress Ruby Rose and fashion designer (and granddaughter of author Roald Dahl) Phoebe Dahl, have called time on their two year romance.
They were engaged in March 2014, with Rose revealing on Instagram at the time that she had asked Dahl to get married three times previously.
The pair have yet to give a reason for the “amicable” break up, but talking to US weekly on Monday, Dahl-who owns clothing company Faithcloth & Supply said :
After two wonderful years together, Ruby and I have decided to part ways. While we still love each other and support each other in every way, it is our mutual decision to part ways. Our break is not the result of any media speculation, and we want nothing but the best for each other. Thank you for respecting our privacy in this very difficult time”.
Rose – who is currently filming Resident Evil: The Final Chapter – tweeted a positive message to Dahl Monday night, and Dahl responded in kind.
@FAIRCLOTHSUPPLY remains very dear to my heart,” the star wrote. “I will forever treasure our time together. I’m a better person because of all we shared.”
@RubyRose you have brought me to my best and I will always love you. I can’t wait to see what the future brings for us.”
Rose also posted this to Facebook.
Phoebe remains very dear to my heart. I will forever treasure our time together. I’m a better person because of the time we shared. They say, “it’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” I’m lucky to have had the chance to love her.”
A couple of months back, the couple decided to postpone their vows due to their busy schedules – but there was worry within the industry that the distance would take it’s toll on the relationship.
As it turns out we love being engaged, and I love the word ‘fiancée.’ It’s actually nice that we do wait that extra year and get to enjoy being engaged before we ball-and-chain it.’
Rose has upcoming roles on the big screen in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and John Wick 2 opposite Keanu Reeves.
As we all know, actress and model Ruby Rose has broken free of Litchfield Prison and landed a role in the upcoming Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.
The new cast member of the Paul W.S. movie seems to be enjoy filming.
Along with cast members – Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, Eoin Macken, Fraser James, Rola, and William Levy – Rose has been snapped in loads of cool behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.
The new film picks up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, where humanity is on its last legs.
As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice (Jovovich) must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters.
Rose’s character is called Abigail, but no other information about her role has been released yet.
The Resident Evil franchise has been one of the most successful game-to-movie adaptations ever, grossing more than $915 million worldwide.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will be distributed in the U.S. by Screen Gems in January 2017.
Ruby Rose has urged fans to boycott the latest issue of The Untitled Magazine after she said it ran photos of her in which you can see her nipple.
The Orange Is The New Black star explained that while she is a supporter of the “free the nipple” movement, she did not approve for these revealing images to run in the magazine.
In the photo, Rose is wearing a see-through black top with a black leather jacket over her shoulder, and her bare breasts can be seen.
She posted on her Instagram account this message
Imagine my shock to find that @theuntitledmagazine decided to publish images of me after we explained we wouldn’t be doing the shoot if I wasn’t appropriately covered.
The difference with working with a friend and or choosing to use nudity for art/and someone taking the piss and exploiting you is two different things.”
Rose says the shoot is eight months old and she also accused Untitled of selling the photos to other publications.
The interview made no sense 8 months on. Please if you are a fan of mine boycott this issue. Or you are buying into greedy, exploitative propaganda. I have plenty of other shoots I’m proud of with professionals coming up its not needed in your collection.”
Her Instagram post appeared alongside the photo of Rose with the iPhone delete option “Confirm Deletion?” positioned to cover her breasts.
Untitled released their girl power edition on September 16 during New York Fashion Week and on the magazine’s website, Rose’s name is listed under “additional exclusive interviews” that appear in the edition.
It was a busy weekend for Ellen Page at the Toronto International Film Festival, but its been fantastic week too.

The Hollywood Reporter sat down with Page and her colleagues for both films. Watch below
