Actress Kristy McNichol Comes Out As Gay

Okay, so this post will prolly only really speak to those of you who grew up in the late 70s/early 80s but I used to be a BIG fan of Kristy McNichol and her coming out as gay is just really fantastic news to me. Some of you younger folks may know McNichol from her role as Barbara Weston in Empty Nest (a character that was originated on The Golden Girls) but those of you who remember the 80′s well may remember that Kristy was a fairly big teen star back in the day (she worked primarily on TV — The Bionic Woman, The Love Boat, Family — but she also starred in the film Little Darlings). It’s safe to say that Kristy was one of those young actresses that guys would pin posters of on their bedroom walls … particularly because of her cute tomboy look. To be honest, news of her coming out isn’t really a surprise to me … but I am very happy that she is finally comfortable being open about who she really is. More »

First Look: Michael Fassbender Covers ‘Interview’ Magazine

Hot actor Michael Fassbender — who starred last year in X-Men: First Class, can be seen in theaters right now (in ALL his glory) in Shame and will be seen in the upcoming Ridley Scott film Prometheus later this year — is featured on the cover of the new issue of Interview magazine. Fassbender is the coverstar of the magazine’s Men’s Issue … which, I assume, is devoted to all things male … or something like that. As a new fan of Fassy, I have to say that I wholeheartedly approve of any magazine that chooses to feature him on their cover. More »
