Actor Ben Whishaw On The 'Courage' It Takes To Come Out As Gay - VIDEO

Lilting

Actor Ben Whishaw, who is set to take on the role of Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic, has spoken to The Sunday Times Magazine about the courage it takes to come out as gay.

Whishaw, who married his partner Mark Bradshaw last year, discussed the similarities between the character he plays in new movie Lilting and his own life.

In the movie, he plays a gay man struggling to come to terms with the death of his boyfriend and forced to tell his partner’s grieving mother about his relationship with her son for the first time.

On whether he was able to relate to someone who felt they couldn’t come out to their mother, Whishaw said:

"It is hard, I applaud anyone who does it. There is so much tension around doing something like that, that maybe you’re not quite thinking rationally. You can say absurd things because you are in a panic.

Asked about coming out to his own parents, he said:

"I identify with the character in Lilting in as much as I had a lot of fear in doing it for a long time...it takes courage and people have to do it in their own time, which is a negotiation you see happening in the film."

The Horrifying Trailer for Kevin Smith's 'Tusk' is Here: VIDEO

Long

Kevin Smith was supposed to have given up on making movies. After his latest project Hit Somebody languished in development hell and the ever-rumored Clerks III failed to materialize, the filmmaker all but alluded to being content with retirement. Or perhaps not. Smith and Co. have just dropped the trailer for his next major film project, Tusk, due out this September. The idea behind Tusk initially began as a twisted musing between Smith and Smodcast co-host Scott Mosier. The premise: how can we turn The Walrus and the Carpenter into a Human Centipede-esque horror film?

Smith laid out his thought process in detail to The Hollywood Reporter last fall, describing the film as an “old British Hammer horror film:”

For those not playing at home, the podcast episode was inspired by a listing from GumTree.uk, a website that specializes in living situations and apartments to rent. In one memorable listing, a homeowner offers a living situation free of charge -- the only caveat being the lodger would have to dress like a walrus from time to time.

Yes -- a motherf---ing walrus.

The listing was written eloquently and briefly mentioned that the writer had once been lost at sea with a walrus he nicknamed Gregory as his only companion. The author writes of being heartbroken by the separation from the walrus and identifies the whiskered beast as better company than any humans he'd ever known. To this end, the author is interested in recreating the best time of his life with a would-be lodger in a realistic walrus costume standing in for the beloved Gregory.

Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Johnny Depp, and Genesis Rodriguez are set to star in the film this fall. Check out the disturbing trailer AFTER THE JUMP...

Double Bearded Jake Gyllenhaal Goodness In 'Enemy' Trailer: VIDEO

J_gyllenhaal

Dubbed a "haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller about duality and identity, where in the end only one man will survive," Enemy pits professor Adam Bell against his exact look-alike, an actor named Anthony Clair. Through a series of improbable events, their lives become entangled after Bell tracks down Clair, and in the end only one will live. 

That's not important. What is important is that this is a film filled with 90 minutes of scruffed-up Gyllenhaal, in stereo. The movie is set to hit theaters on March 14th and DirecTV on February 6th.
