Venn Diagram: Portland Vs. Brooklyn

All About "Portlandia"
Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen get their own show. Read More »

There’s been a heck of a lot of talk about Portland lately, what with the Fred Armisen/Carrie Brownstein show “Portlandia,” all about how the city stuck in the ’90s with its progressive politics and its locavore restaurants and its whole DIY artisinal cheese vibe. Watching “Portlandia” was a little headsmackingly close to home for me, though, because I live in Brooklyn. And not just any part of Brooklyn — Greenpoint, which is the Polish neighborhood directly to the north of Hipster Ground Zero, Williamsburg. Since Winona lives in Portland, we decided to compare and contrast our two fair cities — after all,”Portlandia” spawned an awful Brooklyn parody called Brokelandia (don’t watch it, it’s truly appalling). The verdict? Well, we’ve got Maggie Gyllenhaal. How you like us now?

“I’ve been a Planned Parenthood supporter my whole life — since my mom took me to a rally when I was in sixth grade. It’s chilling to think of this resource being taken away. I have a five-year-old daughter, and I’m pregnant with my second child. I know when my children are older, I will be taking them to events like the one I went to with my mom. I hope we’ll be celebrating our freedoms and rights, not fighting for them once again as we are now.”
Maggie Gyllenhaal penned a piece for Glamour magazine about her support for reproductive rights. She says her mother taught her and her brother Jake to always fight for what they believe in and she believes “every woman has the right to decide what she can do with her body.” I’m impressed a big Hollywood celeb like Maggie is taking the time to support Planned Parenthood; PP is one of the main providers of women’s health treatments like cervical cancer screenings and breast exams for low-income women, who might otherwise go without. Between that and this, can we all just agree Maggie Gyllenhaal is the best?  [Glamour]

Evening Quickies: Maggie Gyllenhaal’s “Got Milk” & Rihanna Gets A New Tattoo

  • Ooh, Maggie Gyllenhaal’s “Got Milk” ad is adorable! Too bad I’m still thinking about how she shares her vibrators. [Just Jared]
  • Before they enemies, Tupac and Biggie were friends! Here’s some rare footage of the two deceased rappers freestyling back in the day. [Buzzfeed]
  • Alex McCord and Simon Van Kempan really don’t want to be booted from “The Real Housewives of New York City” and are practically begging to stay. Frankly, I don’t want them to leave either. I love them! So much better than The C(o)untess. [Crushable]

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Friends Borrow Her Vibrators

“By the time I finished the movie I’d been sent maybe 15 vibrators by different people in London with vibrator stores. It was a pleasant surprise. So I have this incredible collection, and I actually use like one or two of them. I lend them to my friends, and they’ll take them for six months at a time.”

— Maggie Gyllenhaal, who is starring in the movie “Hysteria,” about the invention of the vibrator, is very generous. But I find it a bit strange that her friends borrow her vibrators and then presumably give them back. Like checking books out at the library. Huh. [Contact Music] Keep reading »

Maggie Gyllenhaal Discovers A Vibrator In “Hysteria”

The time before the invention of the vibrator is a dark period of world history which I prefer not to think about. But imagine, ladies, if you will, a period when all of a woman’s problems were attributed to “hysteria,” a vague pathological affliction which doctors found could best be cured by applying pressure to a woman’s most delicate regions. A suffering woman could be relieved of her hysteria by hand, of course, but the world needed a device to get the job done more quickly. “Hysteria” premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival next month and stars Hugh Dancy as a young doctor in Victorian England and Maggie Gyllenhaal as his boss’s daughter, who knows at the root of all these hysterics is a need for pleasure. God bless electricity, that’s all I have to say. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Maggie Gyllenhaal To Star In “Hysteria” About Invention Of The Vibrator

Finally, the most under-appreciated invention in the history of the world is getting its due; this fall, Maggie Gyllenhaal will film an indie romantic comedy, “Hysteria,” about the invention of the vibrator! It’s set in Victorian-era London and she plays the daughter of a doctor who treats what used to be called “hysteria,” i.e., crankiness and tension. Hugh Dancy will play one of the docs and Rupert Everett will play his best friend. Both are convinced a new vibrating device could help ladies clear that “hysteria” right up. I hate to spoil the ending but … well, we all know it works. [Variety] Keep reading »
