Anderson Cooper Discusses Decision to Come Out of the Closet: VIDEO

A_cooper

On his newly revamped daytime show Anderson Live, Kristin Chenoweth discussed Anderson's "big summer", asking him what it was that made him decide, at this particular point, to come out of the closet.

Said Cooper:

"It just got to the point where — I’ve been torn for a long time between a desire as a reporter to just do my job and be known as a reporter — and at the same time I do think visibility is important. I do think that the tide of history only moves forward when everyone is fully visible....I didn’t want to send a message that there was anything I was ashamed about or unhappy about or not comfortable with. That was the main thing for me. I appreciate all the support I got and all the encouragement. I am the same person I always was, I do the job just the same way."

Kristin Chenoweth Okay with Being Pro-Christian, Pro-Gay

Kristin Chenoweth talks about her new show GCB (Good Christian Belles, based on a book called Good Christian Bitches) with ABC News:

ChenowethGCB revolves around Carlene's crew of similarly well heeled girlfriends, one of which is knowingly married to a gay man whose sexuality is kept secret from the church-going community. What does Chenoweth say to those critical of that plot point?

"I'd say go to church and take a look around the room and see if you see any women who might be married to a man who might be gay," she said. "I'd say be very careful of judging someone who's in marriage who is gay because they don't want to be told they're going to hell. I think that happens and I think it's horrible."

Chenoweth also says Christianity does not have to be anti-gay:

"Even as a young child, I thought, 'Why is being gay bad?,'" she said. "I didn't understand it. So I asked my grandma, who is the best Christian I ever knew. I'd say, 'What about my friend Denny, he's gay, is he going to hell?' She told me, 'I read the Bible like I eat fish. I take the meat that serves me well but I don't choke on the bone.'"

Movies: My What Big Legacy You Have

Have you ever seen "The Boys in the Band"?

NOW PLAYING
MAKING THE BOYS is a documentary on Mart Crowley's landmark 1968 play turned 1970 movie "The Boys in the Band" about a very bitchy group of New York City homosexuals gathered for a birthday party during the Stonewall era. The doc is only in New York City at the moment but hopefully other gay-populated cities will follow. No matter what one thinks of the subject film, and opinions vary wildly from "self-loathing relic!" to "Respect your history, it changed the world!", it's worth a rental on legacy alone. One of the most horrifying sequences in the documentary involves a montage of teen and early twenty-something gays, one of them famous, who have absolutely no idea what "The Boys in the Band" is, let alone that it has anything to do with LGBT history. They showed a work print during the Tribeca Film Festival two whole years ago so I recall very little other than that it was an eye opener. Classic Hollywood fans take note: Natalie Wood features fairly prominently, or at least she did in the work print.

Meanwhile in popcorn world, Amanda Seyfried stars in the revisionist fairy tale RED RIDING HOOD.

I know nothing about fashion but I'd be curious to know what Tom & Lorenzo or the Fug Girls make of that red cloak lavender bodice combo. ouch, my eyes...
