…I’m staying with friends in NYC and this bottom wireless network is the ultimate in passive-aggressive New York apartment living.
Matt Lauer asked Anne about that photo of her vagina and she ended her response with: “I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality among unwilling participants, which brings me back to Les Mis.”
OK, like, sure, I’m vomiting all over Les Miserables, but that’s talent. She went from vagina photo to Les Mis without even blinking. And the Oscar goes to.
Anne Hathaway also shut down (skip to about 53 seconds) Jerry Penacoli when asked about her catsuit in Dark Knight Rises, by saying, “Are you trying to lose weight? What’s the deal, man? You look great. No, no, seriously, we have to talk about this… What do you want? Are you trying to fit into a catsuit?”
Speaking of douchebag Jerry Penacoli and his sexist manner towards women, Scarlett Johansson also called him out on his BS. And it was beautiful.
Or how about that time Emma Stone called out the indifference in interview questions in comparison to her male actor counterpart?
Emma Stone: They ask who is my style icon, what’s the one thing that I can’t leave my house without. I’m always like, “My clothes!” I can pretty much leave without anything. It’s fine as long as I’m not naked.
Andrew Garfield: I don’t get asked that—
Emma Stone: You get asked interesting, poignant questions because you are a boy.
Teen Vogue: It’s sexism.
Emma Stone: It is sexism.
Or going back to Scarlett Johansson, she did almost the exact same thing (skip to around 1:40):
Reporter: I have a question to Robert and to Scarlett. Firstly to Robert, throughout Iron Man 1 and 2, Tony Stark started off as a very egotistical character but learns how to fight as a team. And so how did you approach this role, bearing in mind that kind of maturity as a human being when it comes to the Tony Stark character, and did you learn anything throughout the three movies that you made? And to Scarlett, to get into shape for Black Widow did you have anything special to do in terms of the diet, like did you have to eat any specific food, or that sort of thing?
Scarlett: “How come you get the really interesting existential question, and I get the like, “rabbit food” question?
What I’m trying to say, really, is that I love how these actresses are stepping up to the contrast of females to males in Hollywood. Even though they have to go through the sexism, inequality and general rudeness of media outlets, they’re using their popularity to stand up to it and make others question what is wrong and unjustified in the way they are being treated.
Not a Single Damn of the Day
In anticipating of the release of The Hobbit, Brian the Unipiper rode through Portland on his unicycle in full Gandalf garb while playing “Concerning Hobbits” on the bagpipes.
I AM GOING TO MARRY MYSELF BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONLY PERSON AWESOME ENOUGH TO WOO ME.

“Pilots call me Starbuck; you may refer to me as God.”
Kat Dennings is hammering home that she’s a weirdo the way other actresses cake on their down-to-earthness and frequently indulged desire for In-N-Out burgers. “I don’t think I’m a weirdo in a bad way, there’s just a lot going on in my head,” she says. To be fair, she’s fielding a question as to why she’s called herself “weird” in just about every medium available—there was her recent tweet (“People are weird. Boys are weird. Men are weird. Love is weird. You are weird. I am weird. Life is weird. Weird is weird. Look, a MINOTAUR!”), multiple posts on her blog proclaiming her oddball status (“As you are undoubtedly aware from reading this endless omnibus of redonkulousness, I am kind of a weirdo” and then, just minutes into in our phone conversation, she labels herself “a weird one” yet again. Now she’s talking like she almost has it: “Maybe it’s a movie thing? I want to see as many movies as I can and I covet a lot of weird influential movies. I have a lot of favorite authors…Douglas Adams and Charlotte Bronte and Richard Brautigan. I get obsessed. That could be it—how I get obsessed with things. Though I think if I could put my finger on my exact weirdness I’d be able to change it.”
“I’m open to whoever. I think it is absurd to assume that I have to look in a certain category. A person should make choices — about who they want to marry, who they want to spend time with, who they want to fuck — based on a variety of options, and I hope that one day people will be more open-minded about that. It’s silly to look in one category or another. I would never imagine a mate based on a certain sex or race.”
Drink up; Whiskey is God’s way of telling us that he loves us and he wants us to be happy.
Margo: So many people know me. I wish I did. I wish someone would tell me about me.
Oh god, I adore her.
“Fantasy alter egos. We’ve all got them. Truman Burbank led the the kingdom of Trumania from his shower and Dave Lizewski spandexed his way into being as Kick-Ass as he wanted to be. My alter egos have changed a lot over the years. When I was a child I was a black horse…
