Singer, musical theater, film and television actress, and author Kristin Chenoweth posted several comments in response to a Newsweek article titled "Straight Jacket: Heterosexual actors play gay all the time. Why doesn't it ever work in reverse?" The article argues that openly gay male actors have hard time pulling off heterosexual romantic leads. The article specifically pointed out Glee's Jonathan Groff and Chenoweth's Promises, Promises co-star Sean Hayes as prime examples. The article went on to call Groff "too queeny" to play straight and Hayes' homosexuality the "big pink elephant in the room."
Kristin Chenoweth: "From where I stand, on stage, with Hayes, every night—I've observed nothing 'wooden' or 'weird' in his performance, nor have I noticed the seemingly unwieldy presence of a 'pink elephant' in the Broadway Theater. I'd normally keep silent on such matters and write such small-minded viewpoints off as perhaps a blip in common sense. But the offense I take to this article, and your decision to publish it, is not really even related to my profession or my work with Hayes or Jonathan Groff. This article offends me because I am a human being, a woman and a Christian. For example, there was a time when Jewish actors had to change their names because anti-Semites thought no Jew could convincingly play Gentile. Setoodeh even goes so far as to justify his knee-jerk homophobic reaction to gay actors by accepting and endorsing that 'as viewers, we are molded by a society obsessed with dissecting sexuality, starting with the locker room torture in junior high school.' Really? We want to maintain and proliferate the same kind of bullying that makes children cry and in some recent cases have even taken their own lives? That's so sad, Newsweek!"
Chenoweth goes on to defend Hayes and Groff's acting work, as well as name-checking How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris and Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon as examples of gay actors who have played straight romantic leads.
Kristin Chenoweth: "No one needs to see a bigoted, factually inaccurate article that tells people who deviate from heterosexual norms that they can't be open about who they are and still achieve their dreams. I am told on good authority that Mr. Setoodeh is a gay man himself and I would hope, as the author of this article, he would at least understand that. I encourage Newsweek to embrace stories which promote acceptance, love, unity and singing and dancing for all!"
Jackson along with the Nederlander Organization will team up for the musical ... Jackson will provide songs from Thriller (including the title song, "Billie Jean", "Beat It" and "P.Y.T.") as well as songs from his 1979 multiplatinum hit Off the Wall (which featured "Rock With You," "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" and "She's Out of My Life") ...
Meryl Streep wrote to the cast of the musical Mamma Mia! shortly after the production opened on Broadway ... The letter was to thank them for bringing joy to New York in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks ...
Meryl Streep: "We left floating on air. We were so elated. It couldn't have been a better tonic for the city and I wrote the cast a mash note thanking them for the music and what they gave us because it was something that meant a lot at that point. ... It was a gift not just to my little girl and her dispirited friends but it was a gift to the whole city. I never imagined the cast would make copies of the letter and send it to England and everybody would have it on their refrigerators, which I was told much later is what happened."
Seven years later director Phyllida Lloyd, producer Judy Cramer and writer Catherine Johnson got in touch with Streep when they were casting the big screen version of the musical ... and they asked her to play Donna ... the owner of a Greek island hotel who faces three former flames on the eve of her daughter's wedding ...
Meryl Streep: "I just about died. I kept saying, 'Are you sure you want me, because I'm not the likeliest choice, you know.' But I was thrilled because I love the music and it meant a lot to me, so I was very happy to get the chance."
Streep got a chance to do something she had never really done on screen before ... star in a full fledged musical ... She had taken opera singing lessons as a child ... and received good vocal reviews for Postcards From The Edge and A Prairie Home Companion ... but Streep confesses that the dancing presented some problems ...
Meryl Streep: "The singing and dancing was just like being invited to play every day and even when I couldn't dance as well as I wanted to, I could justify it by saying, well, Donna's not a dancer, she's running a hotel."
Coming up next for Streep is Julie & Julia ... where she portrays Julia Child ...

On being a gay icon: I never thought of myself as that, and it never even crossed my mind when people started calling me icon and legend and all this other stuff. I remember I was over in Europe and I called my boyfriend [Jermaine Dupri] once because they had introduced me on a show as a legend, and I said, "You know they introduced me as 'the legendary Janet Jackson', " and he said, "You are." [Laughs.] I never thought of that or looked at myself in that way. But I'll wear the title. I'll own it.
On Janet Jackson drag queens: They really study you. They truly study you. But you know, they pour it on more, which I absolutely love. They give more than I do and I love that. The first time I went to the Baton in Chicago and saw this show, I was with some of my [female] dancers. Afterward, I said to my dancers, "We've gotta pull up because these bitches are hitting it. They're giving so much femininity and we look like boys onstage." The next night we had a show and we were trying our hardest to ooze with that feminine touch.
On gay marriage: I think it should be legalized. I think it's about finding your soul mate. It's finding that person you connect with. But most people don't get it right. Look at me! The thing is, I don't know if I ever will or won't get married again. I'm very happy where I am. I just think I jinx marriages, but that's not going to stop me from loving.
On Broadway: That's always been a dream of mine. I would love to do a musical.

Back in 1974, the sexual revolution was in full swing and the adult entertainment business was on the verge of becoming Big Business. Deep Throat had created America's first porn star in 1972, but by 1974 Linda Lovelace was already retired and the industry was seeking the next big thing. Vanessa del Rio should have been that thing, except in 1974 there were no ethnic sex stars. Undeterred, Vanessa took any role they'd give her, because, amazingly, she was there for the sex more than the money. Fans, awed by her ferocious onscreen sexuality, made her a top box office draw and America's first Latina star. Retired since 1986, Vanessa del Rio remains a sexual icon who cuts across all ethnic boundaries. What her fans don't know is that her real life was, and is, as wild as anything she did on film.
