It's been kind of a mixed bag for athletes making the difficult decision to come out as gay. It helps to have Hermione on your side.

Keegan Hirst recently broke many boundaries, coming out as Britain's first openly gay rugby player. For a macho guy in a macho sport with macho teammates and macho fans, it wasn't the easiest of decisions. He's received a lot of support for the decision, marking even more how much the world has grown in a short time.

And in a beautiful and classy move, Emma Watson congratulated Hirst in a series of tweets Aug. 18.









Hirst spoke to the Daily Mirror about coming out Aug. 15.

Respected prop Keegan, 27, reveals the secret torment of dealing with his sexuality while carving out a career in one of the world's most macho sports.

Speaking exclusively to the Sunday Mirror, the dad of two tells of the moment he finally found the words to explain to his wife the reason they could no longer be together.

And he talks emotionally of the support he got, not only from her but also from his rugby team-mates.

The 6ft 4in captain of West ­Yorkshire side Batley Bulldogs said: "At first I couldn't even say 'I'm gay' in my head, let alone out loud.

"Now I feel like I'm letting out a long breath that I've held in for a long time."



Societal attitudes take a long time to evolve, but that evolution couldn't happen without people like Hirst taking initiative and influential people like Watson supporting them.

Well done, everyone.

Would you buy me? I'd buy me.

When Special Agent-in-training Clarice Starling found the serial killer she'd been searching for, Buffalo Bill, she probably had no time to appreciate the multi-storied, rural Victorian home where he kept victims trapped in a subterranean well. Well now's your chance!

Retired couple Scott and Barbara Lloyd are now selling that piece of movie history, even though it doesn't include all the facets mentioned in the movie.

The New York Daily News has some details on the story:



Clarice Starling, the FBI cadet played by Jodie Foster, tracks down the former patient of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, played by Anthony Hopkins, in Ohio in the movie. But this home is in Western Pennsylvania in the village of Layton in Fayette County.

The house also doesn't have a deep dry well for taking people captive like the one created in a sound stage in the film. Rather, the three-story 1910 home features four bedrooms, a four-car garage and an asking price of $300,000, according to a listing posted Saturday on Realtor.com.



You can see that house in action right here, and then decide whether you'd like to attend an open house. You can probably leave your night vision goggles at home.

There was nothing smoke and mirrors about Aug. 19's Late Late Show with James Corden, for it was the beginning of a beautiful new direction for Patrick Stewart and the show's host.

With great fanfare and awe-inspiring feats of dramatic arm movements, the two unveiled their new project — Cosmagnification. Cosgmaginfication is a redefining of modern 'magic' and strives to circumvent the expected and pull the curtain back on the truth behind the illusion behind the trick.

Also, at one point, Corden accidentally (?) messes up a trick, completely showing how they did it. He would be kicked out of the Magician's Alliance for sure.

But Patrick Stewart's commitment to the team cannot be understated. He approaches the illusionary arts with the reverence and seriousness of a pious monk. A pious monk that wears frilly shirts and a sequin jacket.

These guys could teach a thing or two to Gob.



Roseanne has a lot of questions about KFC chicken, and KFC has a lot of answers.

For some reason, the comedian and former presidential candidate decided to tweet at KFC and ask the secret to their batter. She's clearly a fan.

KFC responded with an entirely too long answer that proves neither Roseanne nor KFC knows how Twitter works. This is a good thing for us.

Like many celebrities before her, Nicki Minaj recently had a wax statue of herself installed at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas.

But unlike other celebrities, her statue is scantily clad and on all fours. And visitors are losing their minds...
