Ellen DeGeneres Influenced Gay Rights Views More Than Any Other Celebrity (Study)

5 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ellen DeGeneres did more to influence Americans’ attitudes about gay rights than any other celebrity or public figure, a new poll by Variety and branding expert Jeetendr Sehdev found.

The daytime host wasn’t the only person who played a key role in shaping hearts and minds. President Barack Obama, who endorsed same-sex marriage during his 2012 re-election bid after initially opposing it, was the second most cited figure, followed by openly gay “Glee” star Jane Lynch and openly gay comedian Rosie O’Donnell. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the fifth most influential voice on gay rights, the study found. Like Obama, Clinton initially opposed gay marriage before changing her views two years ago.

The results were calculated from a nationwide survey of 2,000 adults between the ages of 18 and 65. Polling was based on a combination of online studies and one-on-one interviews. The study was conducted as part of Variety »

Kelly Clarkson's Daughter Wants to Smooch Everyone, and It's Adorable

23 June 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Kelly Clarkson's daughter is already a social butterfly at just 1 year old. The singer shared a collage of photos on Instagram on June 22 that revealed a funny fact about her little girl: she loves giving kisses. In one photo, River is seen getting affectionate with a little boy named Maverick. In another, Kelly is looking away from the camera while she holds her gorgeous daughter. Kelly captioned the cute snaps, "I mean, little Maverick better watch out because River is putting out the 'kiss me' vibes like crazy! She's like Oprah with cars! You get a kiss! You get a kiss! You get a kiss! Everyone gets a kiss! #Mav&Riv." Lucky for Kelly's social media followers, this isn't the first time they've seen River being cute beyond belief. Kelly frequently posts frame-worthy snapshots of her little one, including photos of River getting up close and personal with a »

Fox News to Launch Megyn Kelly Newsmaker Specials (Exclusive)

22 June 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Following her big scoop with the Duggar family earlier this month, Megyn Kelly is landing her own series of primetime specials on Fox News, Variety has learned.

The one-hour shows, which launch early next year, will be similar to the Barbara Walters interviews with world leaders and celebrities that turned the iconic journalist into a mega-star for ABC in the ’80s and ’90s.

Kelly’s specials will focus on newsmakers in politics, sports and Hollywood. Fox News Channel chairman Roger Ailes intends to build each hour around a single sponsor. “Listen, Megyn is so good today that there is no interview I would not want her to do,” Ailes tells Variety.

Kellly’s interview with Joe Bob and Michelle Duggar, which aired during the anchor’s primetime evening show “The Kelly Files” in early June, scored 3.1 million viewers. And as Kelly told Variety in this week’s cover story, she »

How Megyn Kelly Became the New Star of Fox News

22 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Megyn Kelly is bucking the conventional wisdom of what it means to be a Fox News anchor. The take-no-prisoners newswoman isn’t afraid to throw hardballs at Republicans. She recently lectured Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul over his penchant for arguing with female reporters. She poked Jeb Bush about whether he would have invaded Iraq in 2003. She cornered Mike Huckabee for saying it was trashy for women to swear in public. Last year, she told Dick Cheney, “History has proven that you got it wrong” on Iraq. On Election Night 2012, she dared to question Karl Rove for claiming that Barack Obama hadn’t won Ohio, and it went viral.

Just as surprisingly, she says she wouldn’t brawl with a certain Democratic presidential candidate if she landed an exclusive with her. “I think Hillary Clinton could handle me — easily,” Kelly says on a recent afternoon in her Manhattan office. “That would be epic television, »

Welcome to Me movie review: the ultimate selfie

21 June 2015 6:58 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A sort of miracle. A black comedy about a not-well woman saving herself is a savage satire on a not-well world that doesn’t realize anything’s wrong. I’m “biast” (pro): love Kristen Wiig

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Everyone wants to be on TV,” Alice Klieg firmly believes, and this is a supposition about our world that is difficult to disprove. It’s also a supposition that is easy to send up… but Welcome to Me does not take that easy road. It takes a uncomfortable road paved with raw, uncensored emotion that is startling for the portrait it creates of the woman at its center — one of the more realistic depictions of mental illness I’ve seen, though I cannot claim to have a lot of direct experience of the particular affliction she is coping with »

Edinburgh 2015: 'Welcome to Me' review

20 June 2015 6:23 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Mental health is a tricky topic to tackle sensitively in film, no less so when that particular film is a comedy. Shira Piven's Welcome to Me (2014) achieves the impossible in delivering laughs all the while carving out a central character with a disorder who's not only well defined, but also an honest reflection on what it is to be off-centre. Kristen Wiig stars as Alice Klieg, an unemployed and single sufferer of borderline personality disorder who hides away, thriving off watching old recordings of Oprah episodes. When she unexpectedly wins $86M in the California Stacks sweepstakes, she fires her therapist and moves out of her colour-coordinated apartment and into a casino.

Welcome To Me Blu-Ray Review

15 June 2015 5:49 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Welcome to Me is the indie gem of the year already, and despite starring Kristen Wiig, not nearly enough people are talking about it… or are aware it exists.

Wiig stars as Alice Klieg, a psychiatric patient who could not be more in need of her meds, but quits taking them. When she does, her days are spent in something like a fugue of self-obsession and rigid routine. She’s addicted to Oprah, almost oblivious to the existence of other people as beings in their own right, and socially inept in a sense that could make the turn of phrase a devastating insult to others.

When Alice wins the lottery, to the tune of over $80 million, she decides to foot the bill for her own television show that’s sort of like Oprah, if Oprah spent her entire show talking about herself. She also decides that she doesn’t really »

Ben Foster Dopes, Denies as Lance Armstrong in Biopic Trailer

11 June 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Ben Foster darts through the hills of France and around accusations of doping as Lance Armstrong in the new trailer for The Program, director Stephen Frears' upcoming biopic about the rise and fall of the disgraced cyclist.

In the trailer's opening moments, we hear Armstrong espousing his love of cycling and delivering, in a voiceover, a delightfully smarmy platitude about perseverance: "Inside each and every one of us is something more potent and powerful than any drug: It's called, 'the will to survive.'" Soon after though, he's seen »

Ben Foster is Lance Armstrong in traier for Stephen Frears’s new biopic

11 June 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Lance Armstrong went from an American hero to the most hated man in America when it was revealed that he had blood doped and cheated in order to win his record seven Tour de France titles, but had also lied to everyone while off the bike that he was clean. It culminated in a revealing interview between Lance and Oprah and a documentary film called The Armstrong Lie by Alex Gibney.

Now for the first time Lance’s story is being told in a dramatic fiction form, exposing his lie and all that led up to it. Will Stephen Frears’s movie help the cyclist earn some of his credibility back, or will it make him even more of the villain?

Ben Foster portrays Lance in The Program, Armstrong’s story after recovering from cancer up through his Tour victories and till his lie was revealed, all filtered through a »

10 reasons I listen to Howard Stern

10 June 2015 3:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I don't have a lot of friends who listen to "Howard Stern, and many of them are baffled by my obsession with the King of All Media. I suppose the fact that I'm a gay man has something to do with this, given that Howard is traditionally viewed as a straight-male icon. But I love him, I listen to every second of his show and I will continue to do so until he chooses to retire (a distinct looming possibility given that his contract with Sirius is up at the end of the year). I'll admit: I'm a latecomer to the Stern universe. I didn't become a regular listener until about six years ago (i.e. the very tail end of the Artie era) and missed out on the "Golden Age" terrestrial years -- though the claim that he was at his peak in the '80s and '90s is often made, »

Miley Cyrus on 'the first time I wanted to have sex with Joan Jett'

During the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony this year, Miley Cyrus was charged with introducing Joan Jett and the Blackhearts to their latest "spot" in history. HBO broadcast segments of the presentation; here, below, is the whole of Cyrus' f-bomb-laden speech, which contains many fun facts, including how Jett managed to pray on the men's side of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, and what precautions to take if you're smoking pot in a hotel room that Oprah has provided for you. The "Bangerz" singer saluted the Runaways member as not just a "deity," but a "guide" and  "Superwoman, what Superwoman really should be."   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Watch Miley Cyrus' unedited, »

In a matter of hours, Megyn Kelly could score her biggest audience yet. On Wednesday evening, the Fox News Channel anchor will sit down with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar from TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting.” But “The Kelly File” host admitted to TheWrap this Oprah-style interview is a departure from her usual conversations with politicians like Dick Cheney, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie. Although she promises it won’t be her last headline-making sit-down. “We are very much in contention for the biggest ‘gets’ right now,” Kelly said. “It’s a jump ball, but I think that ball is tipping over to me. »
