Douglas offers old excuses
When a fellow member of the press stood up at the press conference of Oliver Stone's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and congratulated the Hollywood actor Michael Douglas for looking good at 65, the actor visibly winced, admitting some minutes later that the film offers weren't as abundant as they had been some years ago.

It's astonishing to think that the thrillers of the 1980s are now deemed insufficiently bland and glossy for mainstream audiences, but it's true. In May we had Obsessed, a (12A)-rated copy of Fatal Attraction, and now we have a plastic, production-line remake of 1987's The Stepfather – with no blood, no swearing, no sex, and no violence – that wouldn't be at home in an episode of Poirot. I'm not even sure why it deserves a 15 certificate, except for all the gratuitous shots of Amber Heard in an itsy-bitsy bikini.

So, the Austrian far-right leader Jörg Haider was gay. He spent the evening of his fatal car crash in a gay cub, cuddling another man, and used to nip across the border to Slovakia for sex with young men. And Stefan Petzner, his protégé and successor as the leader of the Alliance for the Future of Austria, described Haider as “the man of my life” on an Austrian radio breakfast show
