Mr. Sulu is Revealed to Be Gay in the New “Star Trek” But George Takei Hates It
“Star Trek” has its first official LGBT character, and it’s one we’ve known and loved for 50 years. It’s Mr. Sulu. In the upcoming movie “Star Trek Beyond”, we find out that Sulu is in a same-sex relationship, and he and his partner have a daughter. It’s a pretty obvious nod to George Takei, the original Mr. Sulu, who’s gay in real life. John Cho plays the character now, and he said, quote, “I liked the approach, which was not to make a big thing out [of] it, which is where I hope we are going as a species, to not politicize one’s personal orientations.” But here’s the kicker: George is not in favor of this . . . because Sulu was never meant to be gay. And if “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry didn’t write Sulu gay, then he shouldn’t be gay. He told the “Hollywood Reporter”, quote, “I’m delighted that there’s a gay character. Unfortunately, it’s a twisting of Gene’s creation, to which he put in so much thought. I think it’s really unfortunate.” Sulu’s daughter Demora appeared in the 1994 movie “Star Trek Generations”, but as far as anyone knows, she wasn’t intended to have two daddies at the time. “Star Trek Beyond” will open on July 22nd.

Sigourney Weaver Says the New “Alien” Movie Will Ignore the Third and Fourth Ones
Sigourney Weaver is doing a fifth “Alien” movie with director Neill Blomkamp, who did “District 9” and “Elysium”. Although it’ll seem like the third movie, because it’s ignoring the last two movies. She said, quote, “It’s just as if, you know, the path forks and one direction goes off to three and four and another direction goes off to Neill’s movie.” That sounds like we’ll see the return of Newt and Hicks, who were both alive at the end of the second movie, “Aliens”, but killed off during the opening of “Alien 3”. And a photo the director posted a few months ago also seems to confirm that. Get more here.
Jaden Smith Wears Skirts So That Your Son Can in Five Years and Not Get Bullied
Jaden Smith turns 18 today. So he’s officially a man now. But he doesn’t limit himself when it comes to clothing. He’s big into fashion, and has been wearing skirts for a while now,it’s just his ‘thing,’ I guess. Anyway, in a new interview with “Nylon” Jaden says he’s wearing skirts now, so your son won’t get bullied when he wears them to school five years from now. Which is definitely doing your kid a huge solid. He says, quote, “You just have to believe in yourself. The world is going to keep bashing me for whatever I do, and I’m going to keep not caring. I’m going to keep doing the same things . . . I’m going to keep doing more things. I’m going to take most of the blows . . . so in five years when a kid goes to school wearing a skirt, he won’t get beat up and kids won’t get mad at him. I’m taking the brunt of it so that later on, my kids and the next generations of kids will all think that certain things are normal that weren’t expected before my time.” Get more here.
