High art

Nicole Kidman. Charlize Theron. Together. In a movie. As a couple. Playing the first post-op MTF transsexual married to another woman. And, best of all, it's all true. Holy freaking crap and happy fucking Monday!

Seriously, when I first read it in the Hollywood Reporter I checked the date to make sure it wasn't April 1. But, it's not a joke. Instead it's just awesome. Nicole and Charlize have signed on to the independent film “The Danish Girl” based on the novel about real-life Danish artists Einar and Gerda Wegener. Einar (played by Nicole) often dressed as a woman to model for wife Gerda (played by Charlize), and later underwent successful surgery in the 30s to became Lili Elbe.

I want to see this movie now. Immediately, if not sooner. How amazing is this story? And how amazing is this pairing? Sure, I miss the old Nicole Kidman with the red hair and the forehead that moved. But she is still a great actress as is Charlize, who we all know has some experience playing gay.

And, I've left out one of the best parts because, well, there's a reason dessert comes last. Gerda Wegener wasn't just any kind of artist. She was a successful painter and illustrator who did work for Vogue and other publications, but she was also known for her erotic lesbian imagery. Right about here would be where this turns into a Naked Lady Monday post. It's also where things turn NSFW.

Please behold some of Gerda's handiwork (and, once again, I cannot over stress the NSFW bit):

Holy freaking crap, this movie is going to be so gay. Happy fucking Monday, indeed.

Wow, you certainly made my Monday morning! My mind keeps imagining what scene I would like to see Charlize and Nicole reinact. Hmmmm...it is hard to decide...they all look *SO* yummy!

PLUS to find out that I am 1 of the 10 who won The L Word DVD giveaway...thank you! YAY!

I have gone through so many different emotions and so many different trains of thought this past week...as so many of us have...it is great to read some good news on a Monday morning.

Thank you. :)

Awesome! Good to have a couple amazing-sounding LGBT films to look forward to (the other is The Vintner's Luck, about an angel and a winemaker).

Now that is how I like to start my Mondays. I can't wait.

Illustration no.: yum.

Nicole Kidman, not so sure. But Charlize Theron really makes my day. Remember those Dior J'Adore ads?

Fist Bitch Slap, and now this? I am agog! Ohhh, the last image reminds me of a slash fic I was writing for my crush/muse at the time - the title is hoop skirts, and it remains in the stack of unfinished works that will someday grace the sweaty palms of many women!

Oh yes! Oh yes! Oh yes!
