Emma Watson Responds To Vanity Fair Photo Backlash

Tim Walker/Vanity Fair

-I don’t understand all this talk about how Emma Watson wearing a supposedly see-through top in Vanity Fair makes her not a feminist??! Her response to the outrage is kind of perfect: “Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom; it’s about liberation…I really don’t know what my tits have to do with it.” Bless her.

-In case you hadn’t heard, Ryan Gosling is reportedly now in the running to play Bond. (Wait, wasn’t British Idris Elba deemed “not British enough”?)

-The Love Actually reunion pics are making me so happy!

-It’s not a good sign that Netflix is reportedly in “preliminary talks” for new Gilmore Girls episodes and even superfans like Michael Ausiello don’t want it.

-Here’s dreamy Riz Ahmed dreamily talking about representation in the entertainment industry.

-Last night John Oliver took on the latest ripple in the controversies surrounding the president — or as he calls it, “Stupid Watergate.

-Meanwhile, Patrick Stewart says he’s becoming a U.S. citizen so he can fight Trump.

-Wayment, Justin Timberlake is now trying to convince us that “Can’t Stop the Feeling” is about inclusion? Sit down, son.

-This 3-minute Deadpool short is airing in theatres before Logan.

-I haven’t actually seen Logan yet, but I’m liking the interviews about it, from the director taking swipes at the Marvel Studios assembly line, to the screenwriter saying it works better than the average superhero flick because “we didn’t have to sell Happy Meals.”

-The Good Place’s creator Mike Schur has emerged from radio silence to explain that big finale twist.

-The people behind Feud talked about their decision to use the c-word in last night’s premiere.

-This is a really, really good interview with David Letterman. He talks about current late-night hosts (“I don’t want to criticize Jimmy Fallon but I can only tell you what I would have done in that situation: I would have gone to work on Trump”), on being tough during his interviews with Paris Hilton (“She cried and I called her and apologized. I think I bought her a car, too”), and Joaquin Phoenix  (“I mean, he came out begging to be beat up. How can you not take a couple of swings?”) and adjusting to being a normal person (“I needed a pair of shoelaces. And I thought, ‘Hell, where do you get shoelaces?'”)

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle looked cozy at their friend’s wedding in Jamaica this weekend.

-Nice: Get Out has already grossed $75.9M on a $4.5M budget.

Chrissy Teigen opened up for the first time about her postpartum depression in Glamour.

Adele has confirmed she’s married to Simon Konecki. Wait, we didn’t know that?

Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep are set to star in a movie about the Pentagon Papers directed by Steven Spielberg, so I guess we already know who’s winning next year’s Oscars.

-I watched this entire clip of Fargo season 3 and had no clue it was Ewan McGregor until I saw someone tweet about it later.
