A little birdie (that would be me) attended the New York City premiere of “The Iron Lady” last night and boy, were there a lot of celebs!

Cher Sometimes Calls Her Son Chaz Bono “Her”

“If I woke up tomorrow in a guy’s body, I would just kick and scream and cry and f**king rob a bank, because I cannot see myself as anything but who I am — a girl. I would not take it as well as Chaz has. I couldn’t imagine it. … She’s a very smart…

I found this photograph after clicking on a VanityFair.com link that read: “Click here to see a slide show of Brigitte Lacombe’s portraits of Meryl Streep.” So, you get a series of photographs that Lacombe has taken of Streep over the years.

Was 2009 The “Year Of The Woman” In Movies?
