Alexis Arquette jumped into the frey with Janet Hubert, who yesterday attacked Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. In a Facebook rant, she disagreed with their complaints that this year’s Academy Award nominations lacked diversity. Alexis wrote,
“When Jada comes out as Gay and her beard husband admits his first marriage ended when she walked in to him butt servicing his Sugar Daddy Benny Medina… then I will listen to them.
Will threw a fit on the set of Six Degrees of Separation when he was required by the scene to kiss Anthony Rapp. He persuaded the director to shoot the back of his head in frame. Blocking the non-existent lip lock entirely. Fuck him.
Gays have enemies. They lurk in gilded closets. Outing is healthy. You are either with or against us. You decide. Today.”
Arquette has appeared in more than 40 films including The Wedding Singer, Pulp Fiction, Threesome and The Bride of Chucky. She is the sibling of actors Rosanna Arquette, David Arquette, and Oscar-winner, Patricia Arquette. Her transition from male to female was documented in the film Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother. She also claimed to hooking up with Jared Leto when she still identified as male.
The Smiths, so far, have not commented on the rant and it’s doubtful they will.
