Gloria Steinem loves "The Glee Project."

Talk about sentences I never expected to type.

The iconic feminist, who was in Beverly Hills Thursday to talk about HBO's Aug. 15 documentary, "Gloria: In Her Own Words," is rocking 77 these days -- turns out that for a lucky few, 77 is the new 50 -- and keeps up a travel and work schedule that would exhaust people half her age.

But she still finds time for TV?

"I'm as hooked as anyone else, you know," she said. "I have a set in my bathroom -- I'm brushing my teeth as I'm watching -- two consecutive sentences and I'm saying, 'And then what happened?' I get hooked."

And "The Glee Project" (9 p.m. Sundays, Oxygen)?

"They're talented and they're all different sizes and colors and they're great," she said of the contestants vying for a seven-episode guest role on Fox's "Glee."

She doesn't have a favorite competitor "because I don't like the competition part," she said. "But I do love that everyone is so diverse."
