n°242/ Gay Friends

September 2016

by Nathalie Azoulai

There’s a cliche showing a gorgeous woman, generally a female star, laughing with her favorite director or screenwriter that happens to be gay. Take Hepburn and Cukor, Magnani and Williams, Cruz and Almodovar, Dolan and… Famous pics where they have fun as jolly fellows, escaping sex attraction, seducing manners, all that usually occur between men and women. Together, gay friends embody some innocent resting pure comradeship. Human, only human.
