From Associated Press.
The enormous obstacles and emotional torment that a female solider confronts in reporting a sexual assault in the military are the focus of the three-part Web series “Lauren” debuting Monday on YouTube’s new channel WIGS, which focuses on drama for women.
To promote her episode on WIGS (“Lauren” premieres on August 13th) next Wednesday morning from 7:30 Jennifer will be interviewed on the Californian radio station Big Red Country http://www.kred923.com/ and on Cleveland’s Lanigan and Malone morning show from 9:30 am http://www.wmji.com/pages/lanandmalone.html
Also Jennifer will be featured on the next issue of She Magazine. More interviews will be released in the next few days.
Cinemanovel is a new independent film written and directed by Terry Miles (A Night For Dying Tigers) starring Lauren Lee Smith and Jennifer Beals. Jennifer will play the role of Clementine, Grace’s (Lauren Lee Smith) best friend.
The team of Cinemanovel is asking for your help. To be able to maintain total creative control, the film needs funding and if you are interested in independent films and would like to bring this film to life, you can contribute by donating or just by spreading the word. There are also perks for each contribution. The film is set to go into production in September.
Jennifer attended alongside director Rodrigo Garcia and actress Sarah Jones the YouTube Channels’ AwesomenessTV and WIGS TCA Panel at the Beverly Hilton on July 25th to promote Youtube’s channel WIGS.
Asked if day will come that appearing on a YouTube series is as desirable as working in TV, she said: “I think it’s so fascinating what’s happening — that we have this other platform for material that is incredibly intimate and it feels like you don’t have to wait for somebody’s permission to be creative,” Beals said. “You don’t have to wait for that magic, huge number in order to go tell a story. And I love that.” Via The Wrap
Jennifer surprisingly has joined twitter, even though she said she would never do, and tweeted today for the first time : “Hello world; I am finally joining the 21st century and am on twitter. Don’t faint -this is really me.”
She’s chosen a personal photo and a quote from one of her favorite authors Walt Whitman on her profile: Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.
We all of course welcome her to the 21st century :) . You can follow her tweets under her username @jenniferbeals
The photograph taken as reported earlier this year to commemorate Paramount’s 100th years Anniversary can finally be seen on the July’s edition of Vanity Fair, out now.
Jennifer Beals was among 116 superstars and movie executives photographed on the soundstage that housed the Star Trek TV and movie franchises on Lot 18. The photograph was taken by Art Streiber who admitted it was a great opportunity to reunite some co-stars who hadn’t seen each other in years. Check out next week Entertainment Tonight for behind the scenes video footage.
