A tampon for good luck

The Golden Globes may have cheated Jane Lynch, but she was a winner talking "lady power" on the red carpet

Surely many of you are bumming over that fact that "Glee's" Jane Lynch lost was robbed in the best supporting actress category at last night's Golden Globes, but this video clip of a pre-show red carpet interview with the L.A Times is sure to make you smile. Looking glamorous as all heck, despite being huddled under an umbrella, she answers the usual boring questions about her dress and jewelry. Then a reporter goes for another lame query: "What's in the bag?" But there is nothing lame about Lynch's response: She glances at her sparkly clutch and says plainly, "My invitation, a little bit of lipstick and ... a tampon, to be perfectly honest." This nets a few laughs from the gaggle of reporters, one of whom playfully asks whether Lynch is feeling lucky. "I'm feeling real lucky tonight," she says sarcastically. "I'm menstruating, I'm in my lady power -- and I am young enough to still be menstruating!" Sure, she wasn't lucky enough to go home with a statuette -- blame it on "the curse" -- but she is certainly the winner of Best Break From Red Carpet Decorum.
