Rumor has it Beyonce and Eva Longoria are set to star in the sexy Victorian drama “Tipping The Velvet.” Eva confirmed the story and said “Yes it’s true. We are talking about doing the movie together. It’s such a wonderful novel, a beautiful love story.”

Director Sofia Coppola is hoping to bring Sarah Water’s novel about sexual repression to the big screen and is desperate for Beyonce and Eva to take the roles of a 1890s music hall star, Kitty Butler, and her lesbian lover Nan Astley.

Beyonce also seems to think it is time the world was treated to a classic lesbian love story.The singer, who was speaking at a New York benefit for ovarian cancer, said: “We’ve had ‘Brokeback Mountain’ so the time is right for this divine novel to get the same treatment.”

Beyonce and Eva are said to be incredibly excited about the steamy love scenes and can’t wait for filming on the project to start.

A source revealed: “They weren’t at all coy about the sex scenes. In fact they both seemed to think it would be more fun than doing the same work with a man. It’s going to be very hot.”

The BBC’s TV adaptation of “Tipping The Velvet” caused outrage four years ago with its graphic sex scenes, which included cross-dressing and the use of sex toys.

  1. Is she serious? Does Beyonce ever play a role that doesn’t require that she be a singer? I’m pretty sure that she will be Kitty Butler. I won’t be watching it. Both of these women are overrated and overexposed.

  2. I hope nobody is holding there breath waiting for this because it ain’t gonna happen.Beyonce is not gonna play a lesbian and do an actual lesbian scene.She not only doesn’t have the guts for such a role but mama and papa knowles wouldn’t hear of her doing such a thing.:arrow:

  3. I’m looking forward to this film being released. I hope it does well. 🙂

  4. Beyonce would never do explicit sex scenes.She may do the film but folks shouldn’t hold their breath waiting to see her and Eva lock lips or anything else. 😆

  5. Eva said on that though she thinks beyonce is cool, the movie just ain’t happenin’.This is a rumor

  6. I heard this was a huge rumor too. Supposedly Eva said to People magazine that she and Beyonce have only just met recently for a L’oreal shoot and they were asking each other “Did you say…” and neither have said anything about a movie.

  7. Yeah it’s just something the press made up and the whole world ran with it.
