GLAAD is not finished with their protest against the use of the word "gay" in Vince Vaughn-starring movie "The Dilemma".

"When 'gay' is used as a pejorative in such a public way for millions to see and laugh with, it legitimizes and propels the many taunts that gay people endure," GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios says in a statement released on Monday, October 11. "Amidst a rash of bullying related suicides and anti-gay hate crimes, we need to tell Universal and America that our community is tired of being used as a punch line."

Joan Collins: Angelina Jolie Is Beautiful, Jennifer Aniston Is Only Cute


October 12, 2010 03:30:00 GMT


Actress Joan Collins laments the lack of beautiful actresses in Hollywood, insisting audiences are "starved of gorgeous people" on the big screen. The glamorous "Dynasty" star believes the modern film industry would be much more exciting if studios cast more attractive stars in their movies - and she's convinced Angelina Jolie is the only actress who lives up to the legends of the silver screen.

Collins tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "I have to say, there aren't that many good-looking actresses around today. I mean, there's Angelina Jolie and there's... Angelina Jolie. But I can't think of any really beautiful actresses. Jennifer Aniston is cute, but I wouldn't call her beautiful. She's no Ava (Gardner) or Lana (Turner). I think that is why (British singer) Cheryl Cole is popular - because she is just so pretty and the public are starved of gorgeous people."
