OUT MAGAZINE The True Blood and Mildred Pierce star talks about coming out as bisexual and drinking tequila with Ellen Page. Photo: Getty Evan Rachel Wood, just back from the set of a new movie (you can see some sneak peeks on her Tumblr), sat down (or was on the go — who knows when you're on Twitter!) for a chat about her coming out as bisexual in 2012, and her upcoming performance with Milla Jovovich at a fundraising event called "An Evening With Women" for the LA Gay and Lesbian Center on May 10.

The New Yorker People: KIM BASINGER Kim Basinger was born in Athens, Georgia—home of the famous Tree that Owns Itself (corner of Finley and Dearing, one block off Broad), stomping grounds of R.E.M. and Bubba Sparxxx. Athens, officially nicknamed “The Classic City” by those who officially nickname cities, seems deeply American, a lackadaisical college town, cobbled and redbrick, where the ghosts of fallen Confederate soldiers still patrol up and down Lumpkin Street, oblivious and diligent, keeping their phantasmal eyes upon the University grounds.

Kim Basinger—the name itself synonymous with cinematic history, conjuring Hollywood-heyday nostalgia and red-carpet reverie—is a showbiz legend, an unflagging activist, and a movie star in its truest and least bombastic sense. Kim returns to our pages in Flaunt’s 15th Anniversary, for the first time in as many years.
