Beyonce and Longoria in Lesbian Love Affair

By WENN| Friday, November 10, 2006

Beyonce Knowles
HOLLYWOOD - Hollywood sirens Beyonce Knowles and Eva Longoria are teaming up on screen to play lesbian lovers.
The pop star and Desperate Housewives actress have been approached to star in period piece Tipping the Velvet, to be directed by Sofia Coppola.

Based on a raunchy Sarah Waters novel, it tells the tale of an 1890s music hall star and her lover.

Longoria says, "Yes it's true, we're talking about doing that. It's such a wonderful novel, a beautiful love story.

Knowles adds, "We've had Brokeback Mountain so the time is right for this divine novel to get the same treatment."

We just need to endure Beyonce's terrible acting LOL

The BBC already did a version of that.

They didn't cast a "pop star" for the lead though...

This will be the worst thing since... ever!

I don't see anything bad with two young healthy women being intimate. :joy:

Wouldn't it be better for the gay community if they kept sex out of it?


In fact, I think it would be better if they kept sex out of movies in general.
I mean you can imply it but we don't need to all see it. Sex is supposed to be a private, sensual thing; not open for all the world to see.

Personally, I think watching a sex scene at the theater with all those people around is just creepy.

Now, this is what I'm talking about.
Two fine ass women getting nasty.
But it probably won't be that good unless it shows on HBO. :)

I'd say something to the effect of "Sex rools, u dork!" but that would be offensive and disrespectful to the corpse of cinematic drama and story.

I remember a time when sex in cinema was capable of holding some value. Now it's simply a tool to make an otherwise straight to video movie a blockbuster.

So....what you're saying is that Hollywood is really out of ideas? Nothing like kicking a dead horse and trying to get guys out of their basements to go to the theaters...

Stepping down from my soapbox, Eva is a gorgeous woman. Beyonce, not so much...

I'm not sure I fully understand... the overwhelming interest most folks have in this movie has to do with the fact that we might get to see a little bit of simulated sex between 2 women, a fairly attractive white woman, and a fairly attractive African-American one?

And we need to wait for this movie to be produced and released WHY??!?

Gather round now, children, and listen closely to your kindly uncle edlib while he explains a few things about the workings of the World-Wide-Web... :dozey:

:joy:

Without the promise of sapphic action between 2 currently popular celebrities, there's probably no way this film could ever get made.

I kind of doubt the movie itself will be any good but it will probably still be a huge hit because of this.

Indeed.

But my point was there are plenty of opportunities to see the same thing out there, if you have a web connection.

Probably just as simulated... but in many cases, appearing less so... if you catch my meaning. (Thank those crafty kids with their Photoshop skillz.) :dozey:

Or if you don't mind non-celebrities... even more chances to see the same thing with no simulation.

Please don't make me have to spell it out. ;)

@Pie,BB, CO--I agree, so long as it's with me. Last I checked it was much more fun hands on than as a spectator sport. :)

Also, agree with edlib's take on theatrical version of movie, though cable more likely to host that kind of thing. Either that, or art houses and film festivals.

Whoever goes to see this movie for the theatrical value is insane. That's like going to see Snakes On A Plane for a deep plot instead of for the lulz.

Considering everybody here has access to modern society's sum total production output of pornography with the touch of a button, the female Brokeback thing will more than likely seem very tame by comparison.

Still, I can think of a lot worse things to be looking at for two hours than Beyonce getting frisky with Eva Longoria...gay cowboys eating pudding being one of them...

In my naive opinion, this seems to be a rather horrible excuse for a celebrity porn video. :indif:

Sadly, we all know that this will make money just because of the supposed 'content' of this movie.

Sophia Coppola made a decent movie.

Hooray for Lost in Translation.

My point is is that they're glorifying gay. I don't care if there is a gay guy in a movie but I don't want Hollywood to rub it in my face. My point is is that I don't think Brokeback Mountain would've gotten the attention it did if it were a love story between a man and woman instead of 2 gay cowboys. Gay people are out there. I know they're there and everywhere. I just don't need it rubbed in my face. I don't rub my straightness in peoples face.

People had different reasons for liking Brokeback. Sure there were some that probably only liked it because there was a gay couple in it but you can say that about any movie out there (and for many of those people it still had to do with liking the storyline as well). There's always going to be something specific about a movie that attracts people's attention. Sometimes it's even as easy as casting certain actors. In any case, there are tons of people that liked Brokeback for the movie itself not just the interest in watching two gay men. I don't think we can assume to guess what kind of attention it would've gotten had it been a story between a man and a woman because that would've changed the storyline making it into an entirely different movie so who knows.

They're hardly glorifying gay just because there was finally a mainstream movie with two gay men that also wasn't afraid to show a sex scene and some making out which unfortunately is a big thing with the way many people still discriminate in this world. All that though isn't glorifying being gay anymore than all the movies out there that contain straight sex and men/women making out is glorifying being straight. I'd say the straight movie and television content greatly outweighs the quality content that is out there for gay people. Having one big movie between a gay couple doesn't mean it's been rubbed in your face. You can easily watch tons of different programs to get away from it if you really have a problem with it. I mean I'm not complaining when I have to watch yet another straight sex scene in all the movies or television shows that I watch so I think people can deal with there finally being some movies out there with gay themes and characters too. You may not feel you're personally rubbing your straightness in people's faces (and unless you're a part of the movie making process then why would you) but you have to admit that the vast majority of movies/tv shows have in-your-face straight interactions (romantic, sexual, etc) and because of that it's actually easier to make a case that Hollywood is rubbing straight content in our faces much more than gay content.

Widescreen-girls in action, yay. I don't really mind sex scenes at all, but seriously, most movies could easily live without the clear presentation of the act, gay or not, itself, that's what imagination is for. Also, I am not really sure if anybody is doing it like they show in these movies, except maybe for those horror movies, you know, those lustful, uninhibited moments just one second before the killer or the alien lifeform brings a bloody painful death XD
