Eva Longoria has denied rumors that she and Beyonce Knowles would play a lesbian couple in the film version of Tipping the Velvet. The film, which is to be directed by Sofia Coppola, is based on a Sarah Waters novel about an 1890s music star and her female lover.
The London Daily Star reported that the two were taking on the roles and quoted Knowles as saying there should be a lesbian version of Brokeback Mountain.
Longoria said that while she would like to work with Knowles, she has never confirmed she would work on Tipping the Velvet. "This is definitely not something we are doing together," she said. "It's completely and absolutely not true."
Longoria went on to say she was more upset that fabricated quotes attributed to Knowles and her were used to confirm their involvement in the project. (The Advocate)
