I want to give Jessica Chastain so many standing ovations right now, because in a new interview with The Wrap she awesomely calls out Marvel for their lack of female-centric superhero movies. She uses Scarlett Johansson — aka Black Widow — as an example, and the way she argues her point is beyond fabulous. More
Do you ever notice how the red carpet interviews with celebrity women always end up being mostly about fashion or makeup or their kids or how they stay in shape, and very little about the reason they’re on the red carpet in the first place? That reason being that they very likely are nominated for a prestigious award for their talent? More
There are some celebrities who you just can’t imagine yourself loving any more than you already do, because if that were possible your heart would just explode in a mushroom cloud of emotions. Meryl Streep is one of those celebrities for me. More
Jason Sudekis might look kind of dorky on the outside, but underneath that hoodie he’s a freaky sexual marathon champion who will pleasure your genitals in ways you never thought possible. Take it from his lady friend,¬†Olivia Wilde! More

Last night on Chelsea Lately, Kirsten Dunst stopped by to talk about her new movie Bachelorette, in which she plays a character she describes as “the bitch.” As with many interviews I’ve seen Chelsea do, they managed to touch on topics larger than the fluffy anecdotes you usually see on late night talk shows, while still remaining funny.

“You get asked interesting, poignant questions,” she tells fellow interviewee Andrew Garfield, “because you are a boy.” Yeah, that needed to be said. More
Amid all the talk of Olympic athletes and their hot, hot bodies, it’s easy to forget they do not look that way for our personal benefit. But when a bunch of assholes on Twitter began criticizing the bodies of the British women’s weightlifting team for not being “feminine” enough, team member¬†Zoe Smith set them straight with an intelligent, well-written, and hilarious blog post.

‚ÄúI will show side boob for three seconds in a moving shot. I will show the left cheek from the left side in a dim light.‚ÄĚ This was said by actress Emmy Rossum recently when she was discussing her nudity contract in an Emmy Roundtable for The Hollywood Reporter. Rossum‚Äôs character on the series Shameless, Fiona Shaw, shows quite a lot of skin in every episode and she was discussing her initial contract when the show started. ‚ÄúI have a lot of control over what I want to show, when I want to show it and when I don‚Äôt want to show it.‚ÄĚ When asked if she‚Äôs in constant negotiation with showrunner John Wells about nudity issues, Rossum responded: ‚ÄúNot at all. But originally, when they made the contract it was like, ‚ÄėYou will show partial side boob, you will show two cheeks ‚Ä¶ .‚Äô‚ÄĚ More
According to the female showrunners for a number of today‚Äôs most popular shows including New Girl, Up All Night and Suburgatory, writing rooms that have more women are just as raunchy if not raunchier than shows with mostly men on the writing staff. The raunchy, fraternity-like male writing room may be more of an urban comedy legend than we thought.
DeAnn Heline, the showrunner for The Middle, told New York Magazine, ‚ÄúWe‚Äôve had a lot of male writers come in and say, ‚ÄúOh, because women were writing the show, I didn‚Äôt think the writers‚Äô room would be as raunchy.‚ÄĚ And it‚Äôs more so.‚ÄĚ Emily Kapnek, the showrunner for Suburgatory, said, ‚ÄúYou want to create an environment where people feel like they can say anything. It needs to have a safety: You can let your mind go to a really weird, scary, not acceptable place in that room, and then carve a story out of that weird, dark hole in your mind.‚ÄĚ More
There‚Äôs another under-represented group of people on Girls that no one‚Äôs talking about, that no one seems to care about, and it makes me sick.¬† Of course, I‚Äôm talking about men. More
Oh the Cannes Film Festival. The glamour, the beauty, the blatant sexism? In very disappointing news, the famous French film festival forgot to include female directors on its list of 23 nominees.
None of the 23 movies eligible for awards like the prestigious Palme D‚ÄôOr was directed by women. And just two of the films chosen for the ‚ÄúUn Certain Regard‚ÄĚ category, reserved for movies by young filmmakers, had female directors; Sylvie Verheyde, with Confession of a Child of the Century, and Catherine Corsini, with Three Worlds.

Here’s something awesome: 13-year-old Paris Jackson recently became the first girl member of her L.A. private school’s flag football team. Here’s something awful: the despicable organization that is the Lingerie Football League is attempting to recruit Michael Jackson‘s barely-teenage daughter. While she can’t play for the league until she turns 18, the FNL wants her right now as a spokesperson for their youth program. Which is something that exists. More
