Ben Carson: Live and Let Live, But Don't Let Gays 'Redefine' Marriage for Everybody Else: VIDEO

Carson

Dr. Ben Carson likes to think of himself as a kind of "live and let live" libertarian. And so presumably, when he compared gays to pedophiles and people who have sex with animals last year during a discussion on gay marriage, he was really just trying to articulate that he doesn't like interfering with people who choose to love someone of the same sex, or molest a child, or f--k a horse - they just don't get to "redefine" marriage for the rest of society. Makes total sense...

Appearing on Larry King's show earlier this week, the right-wing neurosurgeon spoke about his libertarian political philosophy and why he doesn't see marriage equality as a civil rights issue. He also shared his thoughts on the 2016 presidential election and whether he'll enter the race.

Anna Paquin Teaches Larry King A Thing Or Two About Bisexuality During Awkward Interview

AnnaPaquin

Anna Paquin has been open about her bisexuality for years now, so it is no surprise that Larry King might ask about her sexuality and marriage to True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer. Still, King's line of questioning verged straight from a discussion of vampire Bill's multiple partners on the bloody, sexy HBO drama to a couple of painfully awkward questions about Paquin's own sexual interests. The endearing star came out of the interview all the better for her honest and articulate responses, but one cannot help but cringe a little.

Here's a short excerpt:

King: Are you a non-practicing bisexual?

Paquin: Well, I mean, I am married to my husband and we are happily, monogamously married, so...

King: But you were bisexual?

Paquin: I don't think it's a past-tense thing. Are you still straight if you're with somebody? If you were to break up with them or they were to die it doesn't prevent your sexuality from existing.

King: That's wishful thinking, okay? (laughs)

Paquin: I'm just saying it doesn't really work like that.

Betty_white

In an interview on Larry King Now, actress and comedienne Betty White briefly mentioned her attitude towards gay issues.

Instagram user mrluissalazar asked “What has been the significance of the gay community for your career? And what do you have to say to those against gay people?”

White ignored the first part of the question and responded, “I don’t care whom you sleep with. It’s 'What kind of a human being are you?' I don’t understand [why people are anti-gay], it’s such a personal private business and it’s none of mine.”

In regards to her success she said, “You’ve always got to think of it as the privilege of the world to get to this point.”

She also said that the thing that makes her the saddest about the entertainment industry is the ungracious unappreciative, entitled attitudes some successful people have. “They think it’s their due,” White said. “It isn’t. There’s always someone over there who can do it better.”

Larry King Asks Gina Gershon Why She's a 'Gay Icon', Playing Donatella Versace: VIDEO

Gershon

Larry King spoke with Gina Gershon on his Ora TV program  about her gay fan base and how she channeled Donatella Versace for this weekend's House of Versace Lifetime movie.

"I think gays like me because of Showgirls and because of Bound, those two movies...I dunno, spoke to them and they liked me from there.  And I think gays--when you have them as a fan base, they are loyal, extremely loyal -- I think after that, they were there."

She says she had a different of Showgirls going in than going out:

"Umm...you know, when I went into Showgirls, I was really obsessed with all his Dutch films, you know, Verhoeven's  Dutch films, so I thought it would be really dark and intense...you know, and then I got onto the set and I was like, Oh, wow, this is a different--it was like the Wizard of Oz, going from the black and white to the technicolor. I just thought it was funny, but then I realized I don't think everyone was thinking it was funny.  I just thought, 'Oh, the drag queens will love me after this show.'"

On playing Donatella:

"You know, I listened to everything. I went to sleep listening to her. I listened to her before. But you know, this is the Lifetime version of the movie, and I think sometimes on TV, you know, I guess they like you to be understood. If it were up to me, I wish we could have subtitles, cause sometimes she talks and everything is kind of mushing into everything else."
