Glamour spoke with Ellen Page and Julianne Moore about Freeheld, and Ellen shares how the film helped her to come out:

“I thought, How can I make this film if I’m a closeted person? Keeping that part of myself hidden was affecting my work, my ambition, my relationships. It was a constant burden—it was so toxic. As a gay woman, playing a gay character is a pretty monumental moment.”


Speaking of Ellen, surely you’ve seen this video of her confronting Presidential hopeful Ted Cruz about his stance on religious freedom. The out actress was there with cameras for her upcoming Vice series Gaycation.

Cate Blanchett talked Carol  (briefly) with T magazine. She says of Patricia Highsmith:

“She writes so fearlessly — and often ambiguously, but often ferociously — about human relationships and the human heart. I always have this terrible sense of foreboding, like a thrilling sense of foreboding, like something terrible is going to unfold. Like you never feel safe.”

British singer Jess Glynne is opening up about the ex-girlfriend who inspired a lot of the songs on her new album, I Cry When I Laugh.

“I’ve only ever been with one girl in my life and that’s the girl from my album. It was hard at the beginning of the relationship because until then I had only ever gone out with guys. But I am who I am. I’m never going to put a label on my sexuality and people should never feel uncomfortable about who they love. I wanted my album to be as honest as possible. I’ve laid all my cards on the table and gave the truth. There was never a question of hiding the story behind it. I pray one day we get to a point where it’s no longer a thing.”
