New 'Saint Laurent' Biopic Gives a Noir Feel To Fashion Icon: VIDEO

Ysl_a

Yves Saint Laurent, the renowned French fashion designer — celebrated for bringing stylish, ready-to-wear clothing to high-end consumers and using non-white models — has an artistic biopic coming out called Saint Laurent.

The trailer is entirely in French, but the editing and camerawork give it the feel of a noir thriller. Another biopic about the famed designer also came out earlier this year.

Laurent and his long-time partner Pierre Bergé joined in a French civil union a few days before Laurent died of a brain tumor. The auction of his estate brought in over $522 million.

Here's What it Looks Like When a Massive Whale Lifts Your Kayak: VIDEO

Kayak

A pair of kayakers in Puerto Madryn, Argentina had the good fortune to spot some whales during their time in the water, most likely some southern right whales.

It just so happened that the whales spotted the kayakers, too, and decided to swim closer for an inspection...MUCH closer. One curious cetacean swam right up to the boat and for reasons unknown decided to play with it by lifting up and out of the water a few times, much to the kayakers' delight.

Fortunately they caught it all on a waterproof video camera and uploaded the encounter to YouTube for the world to enjoy, which you can too, AFTER THE JUMP...

Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate Pledges To Stand Up To Gays, Immigrants: VIDEO

Mexigov_2

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Andrew Thomas just released his first campaign ad. It states, “he’s the only candidate who has stopped illegal immigration, stood up to the gay lobby, and opposed liberal judges.”

Thomas helped write Arizona’s infamous “show me your papers” law requiring police to racially profile anyone they suspect of looking like an undocumented immigrant.

In 2010, he resigned as Maricopa County Attorney to run for attorney general of his state and lost. In 2013, he was stripped of his legal license and disbarred as an attorney. AZ Central explains why:

Among the most serious findings were that he and his former prosecutors pressed unwarranted criminal charges, obtained indictments, filed a federal racketeering lawsuit and initiated investigations against his political enemies and those of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio from 2006 to 2010.

On the “Push Back against Liberal Bullies” section of Thomas' issues page, it reads:

Liberal professors and other zealots in higher education, subsidized by federal tax dollars, indoctrinate young people and stifle free political expression by conservatives and others at our colleges and universities.

Gay-rights activists assail anyone who believes in marriage between a man and a woman.

Unelected activist judges, appointed and egged on by Obama, rule by decree, gutting or throwing out our laws against illegal immigration.

Thomas ignores the fact that the judge who blocked key provisions of his “show me your papers” law was in fact appointed by former President Bill Clinton. And he has 

Not that it matters. Current polling has Thomas far behind Arizona’s other GOP gubernatorial candidates Ken Bennett and Doug Ducey — neither of whose websites even mention LGBT rights.

John Travolta's Alleged Former Gay Lover Can Tell His Story: VIDEO

Travolta

A California appeals court judge ruled on Tuesday that John Travolta can no longer stop former employee and alleged former lover Douglas Gotterba from telling his side of the story, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Gotterba claims that his working relationship with the actor became more personal when he was employed by Travolta’s aircraft company Alto in the 1980s.

After Gotterba announced plans to release a book telling “the story of his life and those involved in it,” Travolta’s attorney sent the pilot cease-and-desist letters claiming Gotterba was breaching a confidentiality provision in his Alto termination agreement.

However, Gotterba and his lawyer said that the paperwork in question is inauthentic as it is an early draft of the agreement. Gotterba sought a judge’s opinion about which agreement was valid and whether or not confidentiality was enforceable.

California appeals court Presiding Justice Arthur Gilbert has now ruled in Gotterba’s favor, stating that the lawsuit was based on “the validity of the asserted termination agreements.”

Gilbert added that if Travolta had won, the decision “would lead to the absurd result that a person receiving a demand letter threatening legal action for breach of contract would be precluded from seeking declaratory relief to determine the validity of the contract. Declaratory relief would be limited to situations where the parties have not communicated their disagreement.”

Is Jake Gyllenhaal's 'Nightcrawler' His Darkest Role Since 'Donnie Darko'? - VIDEO

Gyllenhaal

In what may be his darkest role since Donnie Darko actor Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the upcoming psychological thriller Nightcrawler as Lou Bloom a desperately ambitious cameraman who seeks out murder scenes, fires and car crashes to sell to broadcast television.

Apparently, Bloom’s ambition and nighttime activities turn him into a frightening creature — aided, of course, by the 20 pounds that Gyllenhaal dropped for the role. Gyllenhaal played an obsessed journalist hunting down a serial killer in the 2007 film Zodiac, but in that film he was a good guy. Nightcrawler has Gyllenhaal returning to his antihero roots where the line between good guy and monster gets blurrier with each frame .

The film also features Rene Russo playing “a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news.” It comes out in theaters October 17.

BigBrother1

House guest Frankie, Big Brother 16's openly gay contestant (and Ariana Grande's half-brother), seems to be flourishing as the other contestants embrace their inner bromanticism. Whether participating in a muscle competition or sharing a cozy bed, this season's initial male-male relationship between Frankie and Zach seems ready to expand.

It is certainly refreshing to see heterosexual guys feel comfortable enough with their sexuality to play around and have fun (without scapegoating the LGBT community). 

Check out several particularly friendly moments, AFTER THE JUMP...
