!! OMG, quote of the day: Sacha Baron Cohen explains why he left that Freddie Mercury biopic !!


“There are amazing stories about Freddie Mercury. The guy was wild,” he said. “He was living an extreme lifestyle [of] debauchery. There are stories of little people with plates of cocaine on their heads walking around a party.

They are a band, they want to protect their legacy as a band, they want it to be about Queen. And I fully understand that. [After] my first meeting, I should never have carried on because a member of the band – I won’t say who – he said, ‘This is such a great movie because such an amazing thing happens in the middle of the movie.’

I go, ‘What happens in the middle of the movie?’ He goes, ‘Freddie dies.’ I go, ‘So you mean, it’s a bit like Pulp Fiction, the end is the middle, and the middle is the end? That’s interesting.’ He goes, ‘No no no.’

So I said, ‘Wait a minute, what happens in the second half of the movie?’ And he said, ‘Well, we see how the band carries on from strength to strength.’ And I said, ‘Listen, not one person is going to see a movie where the lead character dies from AIDS, and then you carry on to see [what happens to the band].”

Sacha Baron Cohen on The Howard Stern Show discussing why he left the untitled Freddie Mercury biopic project in 2013, before apparently returning in 2015, and then leaving again.

!! OMG, Lilly Wachowski, 48, sibling of Lana Wachowski and second Matrix director comes out as transgender !!


Lilly Wachowski, 48, sibling of Lana Wachowski, 50, issued a statement to Windy City Times that begins, “SEX CHANGE SHOCKER—WACHOWSKI BROTHERS NOW SISTERS!!!”

The Times reports an outlet threatened to out the younger Wachowski, which led to the announcement, which, Lilly writes, she had been anticipating with “dread and/or eye rolling exasperation.”

“The ‘news’ has almost come out a couple of times,” Wachowski writes. “Each was preceded by an ominous email from my agent — reporters have been asking for statements regarding the ‘Andy Wachowski gender transition’ story they were about to publish.”

Wachowski goes on to recount an incident in which a reporter from the Daily Mail showed up at her home to elicit an exclusive on her gender transition.

“After he had given me his card, and I closed the door it began to dawn on me where I had heard of the Daily Mail,” Wachowski writes. “It was the ‘news’ organization that had played a huge part in the national public outing of Lucy Meadows, an elementary school teacher and trans woman in the UK.”

Wachowski decided instead to come out on her own terms. “So yeah,” she writes. “I’m transgender.”

Congrats to Lilly! The world can absolutely use another incredible talent, sharing from a trans perspective and it is so wonderful that her sister has already been through a transition before her.
