"He used to get quite aroused whenever I got on his back."Michael Fassbender talks about his experience horseback riding in Jane Eyre. It's probably the only time a horse saw someone better endowed, as you can see on BillyMasters.com .
We've all heard that drinking red wine is good for you. Some studies state that a couple of glasses a day helps burn fat, lowers blood pressure, cholesterol, and even helps your teeth. So I was not particularly surprised when headlines blazed that drinking three glasses of champagne a day could help stave off Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. We're not talking about champagne that comes from Oregon or Uganda. This is real champagne from Champagne, France. Alas, the story was retracted the next day. The study in question recommends three glasses of champagne a WEEK, not a day. Perhaps dementia set in a bit early for some members of the media.
The champagne was flowing last week at the 2015 Marine Corps Ball in Wilmington, North Carolina. And one couple made quite a splash. As we previously reported, Sgt. Tanner White made a video inviting gay singer Steve Grand to accompany him. And Grand accepted. The banner evening was well-documented by the sexy singer on Instagram, including a pre-festivity outing, touring a battleship and dressing for the occasion. In addition to some snaps of the handsome couple all gussied up ( including dashing Sgt. White in his dress best ), there's a photo that appears to show Grand sitting on White's lap. Hopefully he had a ball and didn't sit on one! Check them out on our website.
For the last few years, Nick Jonas has been courting gay fans with performances in gay bars, provocative pictorials and supportive sound clipsto say nothing of actually playing gay in the series Kingdom and Scream Queens. He even jumped in at the last minute to headline Pittsburgh Pride. I'm not criticizing any of this. In fact, I applaud his efforts. But I think there's a "gay-baiting" aspect to thisa kinda deliberate teasing. There's the insinuation that he not only enjoys the attention of his gay fans, but perhaps harbors some secret desires of his own. Those hints got a bit more explicit last week. At the Radio One Teen Awards, Nick was asked about gay sex. He responded, "Well, I'm gay in Kingdom. If you keep watching the series, you'll see more of that." He was then asked point-blank if he's ever hooked up with guys: "I can't say if I have or haven't, but if you watch the show you'll see more of that." Oy!
These days, the line between mainstream and porn is blurred regularly. But even I was shocked to read about a scandal regarding a gay adult flick and Sir John Gielgud! Way back in 1976, the venerable actor wrote a script for Peter de Rome, a notable figure in the history of gay porn. How Gielgud knew de Rome is unknown. But, hey, if I can have Sophia Loren on speed dial, anything's possible. The heretofore unknown script, Trouser Bar, was unearthed by David McGillivray, who came across it while researching a documentary about de Rome. He says, "John Gielgud was obsessed with trousers, loved corduroy and leather. And so he wrote a film set in a menswear shop." McGillivray has filmed the script but, since he's not a director, he hired onethe notable gay-porn auteur Kristen Bjorn. The flick begins with actors Nigel Havers, Julian Clary and Barry Cryer on a sidewalk watching a gay orgy inside a men's shop. McGillivray calls the 22-minute silent film an "erotic fantasy."
Predictably, the Sir John Gielgud Charitable Trust is not thrilled about this, and has denied permission for the film to be exhibited. Here's the problem: There is not a single mention of this script in Gielgud's letters or diaries. In fact, he doesn't appear to have ever written another screenplay. But by this organization seeking to ban the film, they're confirming that Sir John Gielgud actually wrote it. For the time being, McGillivray's flick remains under wraps, which is fine by him. He's planning a new documentary which he'll trot out to film festivals next year. Inside Leg: The Making of Trouser Bar will fully detail the history of the project. Without even trying, the Sir John Gielgud Charitable Trust has given McGillivray and his dirty movie thousands of dollars of free advertising. Banned or not, we have some stills from the short on BillyMasters.com .
The London production of Les Miserables just celebrated its 30th anniversary. As is typical of these events, original cast members joined the cast after the curtain calls. While she missed the 25th anniversary, Patti LuPone ( the original Fantine ) was on hand to sing "I Dreamed a Dream." Midway, out came Rachelle Ann Go ( the current Fantine ). Then the original Eponine, Frances Ruffelle, started singing "On My Own." Rounding out the quartet was the current Eponine, Carrie Hope Fletcher. Although the video has disappeared from the Internet, you can see it on BillyMasters.com .
Our "Ask Billy" question comes from Justin in Wisconsin: "I was surprised to learn that Asher on How To Get Away With Murder was a competitive bodybuilder. He doesn't look very in shape on the show."
If you've ever gone to a high school reunion, you will immediately notice that the guys who looked great as kids are now fat ( and, often, bald ). This is what happens to straight guys when they get older, and this is what happened to 29-year-old Matt McGorry, who plays Asher ( who's also on Orange Is the New Black ). In his early 20s, he was a personal trainer and a competitive bodybuilder with roughly 5 percent body fat! He says, "I didn't really enjoy it too much." Personally, I don't think he looks that bad. But he's certainly not as sexy as his co-star. Charlie Weber looks good as the bearded Frank but only a few years ago, his look was drastically different. He was clean-shaven, had a lean, ripped body, and looked ready for gay porn. You can check out both boys' past on BillyMasters.com .
When we're firing up the time machine, we've definitely come to the end of yet another column. It should go without saying that all of your gossip needs can be fulfilled by checking out www.BillyMasters.com, the site where you'll have a ball ... or two. If you have a question, send it along to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Nick Jonas shows us what's inside his trousers. So, until next time, remember, one man's filth is another man's bible.
