Yes, Amazon and ebay are terrific resources, but ioffer.com is an extra fabulous "place to buy, sell, and trade." The inexpensive womens handbags, clutches, and wallets on the homepage alone are enough to make your head spin. But it turns out they have mens clothes too! And clicking on Movies & T ... More >>
Two-time Oscar winner Jane Fonda is having a great year, with parts in The Newsroom and the upcoming The Butler. And now, I hear, she's doing a pilot for ABC! It's a mother/daughter premise, and though she could easily play the daughter, I assume Jane will probably be the mother.
Oprah Winfrey just sent out this glimpse of herself with director Lee Daniels, who's doing a film called The Butler, about the title character's years of service to a succession of Presidents. Oh, and there are two other people in the picture. They're Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda, who happen to be ... More >>
Neon Lycra and headbands never looked this good
This week's column is a sublime interview with the great Jane Fonda, and I would have hated myself if I'd wrapped it up without asking her about two of my movie club's all-time faves. There's the bizarre racial melodrama Hurry Sundown and the darkly sexy Walk on the Wild Side, set in a New Orleans ... More >>
On her renaissance, on laughing, and on men
I had a stimulating chat with the legendary Jane Fonda at the Sherry Netherland's Cipriani last week, and it's all laid out for you in this week's column, a real gem of a standup sit-down interview. Jane was honest and articulate as she told me why her longevity astounds her, what she's learned abo ... More >>
There's been a lot of talk -- mainly right here -- about whether Barbra Streisand is the right choice to play the feisty Mama Rose in the new movie version of the classic musical Gypsy. Well, I just heard from Steven Brinberg, who for years has done a letter-perfect Babs homage called Simply Barbra ... More >>
Yes, I know I just wrote that Jane Fonda plays an eccentric granny in the upcoming Bruce Beresford film Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding. But her character is also a mother. You can't be a granny without being a mommy first.
In a movie, that is. Doesn't she look amazing in the role? It's from Bruce Beresford's Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding, which is opening in June.
Who will you miss the most? *Elizabeth Taylor. A legend, a goddess, an activist. *Steve Jobs. Ditto, except for the goddess bit.
I see at least three Oscar winners in these silent but riveting home movies taken by Roddy McDowall in Malibu in the kicky '60s. There's Jane Fonda, Ruth Gordon, and Julie Andrews, and of course, Tammy Grimes and...
Lord knows I do.Part of the fun of the whole thing is that you can chase, I mean follow, anyone you want! (It's not like Facebook, where both parties have to approve of the relationship. Twitter is so much easier for those with stars in their eyes! You just click and follow!) On Twitter, I' ... More >>
Whoever Judi Sheppard Misset is, she's resurfaced as the star of a YouTube classic, wearing very tight blues and whites--and backed by two gal pals in the very same--as she shakes her body around and urges you to follow every gyration. Judi's yelps, encouragements, and chastisements, peppere ... More >>

Swing-dancing, Fringe-watching, Montauk-visiting—almost relaxing
CLICK HERE for my column in which I pose that trenchant question, proving once again that I know people in low places. Also in the column: *What was Jane Fonda drinking at that premiere last week? *Where does Sutton Foster's new dominatrix character draw the line? *Who put the tauk back i ... More >>
Today was Day Two of the state Republican Party convention and the hot and heavy action on the delegate floor came early and often. These were rock-solid Republicans filling the big ballroom at the Sheraton Towers in midtown, but for all their rhetoric, they could just as easily have been an ... More >>
Is that your card catalog or are you just happy to see me?Hold onto your library cards, peeps.

Statues of no limitations—the Academy Awards bring the crazy
Two exhibits focus on powerful women of the 1970s
Hey, you with the short attention span! Read these items, please.
That very oddity comes up in this week's salaciously readable column (CLICK HERE), along with so many other trenchant issues of the day. Like: Just who did Katy Perry kiss on a recent dare, and did she like it? Who was a former President rumored to have smooched? Are angry people really peeing ... More >>
Some guy's leg and foot on the subway, via twitpic. We love Mary Louise Parker as much as anybody, maybe more, but find it hard to credit her claim that she was "goaded" into a nude scene in an (upcoming!) episode of Weeds and is "bitter" about it. She's, like, naked in everything. Here is a practic ... More >>
The Tony Award nominees have just been announced. The best musical nominees are Billy Elliot, Next to Normal, Rock of Ages, and Shrek the Musical. (Rock of Ages being a jukebox musical, its place in the Best Score category was taken by 9 to 5; [title of show] replaced it in the Best Book list.) Best ... More >>
Fortunately, lots of people—well, gay people—still care about Broadway.
Tilda Swinton is the brilliant Oscar winner who always seems to get cast as an icy, bitchy, evil wrongdoer. I've long hoped movieland would give the woman a break and let her play Mary Poppins for a change--or at least the lion or the wardrobe--but here's the official description of her latest film, ...

Ever since its brief theatrical run in 1972, F.T.A. (coming soon to the IFC in a restored archival print) has almost never been seen. The documentary recorded the vaudeville antics of Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland, among other actors, who toured military towns around the U.S. and overseas to offe ... More >>
Assuming you have one, of course. Do you just call it Vagina? That's a tiny bit cold, no? Perhaps you call it something like Marge or Francine or maybe Lady Peaceful or Queenie. And there's always the old, familiar Whatchamacallit. In any case, I'm dying to find out what the most prevalent (cunni) l ... More >>
