Jennifer Lawrence Adresses the Gender Wage Gap in Hollywood



In a news letter run by Lena Dunham (ignoring that bit) Jennifer Larence finally talks about how she and her female costar Amy Adams were paid significantly less than their male costars in American Hustle. The whole article is definitely worth a read but here are the highlights:

  • When it comes to the subject of feminism, I’ve remained ever-so-slightly quiet. I don’t like joining conversations that feel like they’re “trending.” I’m even the asshole who didn’t do anything about the ice-bucket challenge — which was saving lives — because it started to feel more like a “trend” than a cause.

  • It’s hard for me to speak about my experience as a working woman because I can safely say my problems aren’t exactly relatable. [...] I didn’t want to keep fighting over millions of dollars that, frankly, due to two franchises, I don’t need. (I told you it wasn’t relatable, don’t hate me).

  • All I hear and see all day are men speaking their opinions, and I give mine in the same exact manner, and you would have thought I had said something offensive.

  • I’m over trying to find the “adorable” way to state my opinion and still be likable! Fuck that.

  • Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale, and Bradley Cooper all fought and succeeded in negotiating powerful deals for themselves. If anything, I’m sure they were commended for being fierce and tactical, while I was busy worrying about coming across as a brat and not getting my fair share.

  • Again, this might have NOTHING to do with my vagina, but I wasn’t completely wrong when another leaked Sony email revealed a producer referring to a fellow lead actress in a negotiation as a “spoiled brat.” For some reason, I just can’t picture someone saying that about a man.

Misty Copeland being perfect on The View



-Opens up about her journey and being the first African-American ballerina at ABT.
-Talks about her documentary "A Ballerina's Tale"
-She just got engaged to Taye Diggs cousin!

In case you are not familiar with her career, within two years of beginning ballet, she was winning dance competitions. After four years of her first class, she landed a spot with the American Ballet Theatre. For 10 years, Copeland was the only African-American ballerina at the ABT. On July 1, she was named the first African-American principal dancer in the company’s 75-year history.

Her new documentary covers her overcoming her tough upbringing and severe injuries to become the ballerina of a generation. She says of the documentary "But I also felt like this was an opportunity and a platform for me to share and educate people on African American ballerinas that have existed for generations and generations." Her doc opens in select locations on Oct 14th.

Quentin Tarantino Interview: My Race Is Irrelevant


On Ava DuVernay's Oscar snub for Selma: She did a really good job on ‘Selma’ but ‘Selma’ deserved an Emmy.

On controversy/black critics: [...] But when the black critics came out with savage think pieces about ‘Django,’ I couldn’t have cared less. If people don’t like my movies, they don’t like my movies, and if they don’t get it, it doesn’t matter. The bad taste that was left in my mouth had to do with this: It’s been a long time since the subject of a writer’s skin was mentioned as often as mine. You wouldn’t think the color of a writer’s skin should have any effect on the words themselves. In a lot of the more ugly pieces my motives were really brought to bear in the most negative way. It’s like I’m some supervillain coming up with this stuff.

On Inglorious Basterds losing to The Hurt Locker for 2010 Best Picture, Director, and Original Screenplay Oscar: It bugged me that Mark Boal won Best Screenplay for that movie. The Kathryn Bigelow thing — I got it. Look, it was exciting that a woman had made such a good war film, and it was the first movie about the Iraq War that said something. And it wasn’t like I lost to something dreadful. It’s not like ‘E.T.’ losing to ‘Gandhi.’

Charlize Theron in talks to star in The Gray Man


- Charlize Theron is in talks to star in The Gray Man, a spy thriller that was written for a male hero
- Brad Pitt was originally going to star (but now the role will be genderbent)
- the original script is from Joe and Anthony Russo, no director yet
- description: Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man – a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness.
Now, he is going to prove that for him, there’s no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.
- this might be the first major role she's signing on to since Mad Max Fury Road

The Long History Of Musicians Telling Republicans To Stop Playing Their Music



Our statistic lords and saviors over at FiveThirtyEight (All hail Nate Silver) pulled together a list of all the times that a politician has been asked to no longer use a song.

-About 74 percent of political donations from people in TV, music and movies went to Democrats during the 2014 election, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. In the 2008 election, 81 percent went to Democrats!

-On Tuesday, after Trump used Neil Young’s song “Rockin’ in the Free World” at his presidential campaign announcement, Young — a Canadian citizen — said he was actually a supporter of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders and said Trump had no permission to use the song. (The Trump campaign said it obtained a license to use the song from ASCAP.)

-George W. Bush, Romney, and McCain got dinged the most by artists such as John Mellancamp, Tom Petty, Heart, and the Foo Fighters.

-Other interesting complaints: Bobby McFerrin objected to George H.W. Bush using the song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” in 1988 and Sting objected to both Gore and Bush using his song Brand New Day in 2000.

-Abba complained about McCain using "Take a Chance on Me," which FiveThirtyEight adorably points out as sad because "Regardless of your politics, can we take a minute and think about how much it must have sucked to be the guy making the playlists for McCain in 2008? ABBA’s objections must have particularly stung — McCain has been very public about his love for ABBA. In 2008, he was asked to list his 10 favorite songs. Two of them were ABBA songs. That is how much John McCain likes ABBA, which is great, because ABBA rules. McCain has great taste in music."

Brandon Confirms The Killers Have Begun Work on Album #5 + Superheated



On #TK5:
"We’re in motion for sure. We’re starting to talk and looking at where we’re going to rehearse and where we’re going to write and thinking about switching it up. I think we definitely need to do something a little different.  We need to turn it on its head a little bit. The wheels are turning."

Thinks last album, Battle Born (available on iTunes now!), had great moments. Is most proud of "Be Still," "The Way it Was," and "Runaways."

Is honored to be on New Order's new album with the closing track "Superheated." Which by the way was recently released. Check it out below!

More Asians on TV—Will Yun Lee to Guest on Dr. Ken as Allison's (Suzy Nakamura) Ex

Jessica Jones Has Hot Sex and Nuanced Sexuality (Especially for a Marvel Show)





  • "The entire episode was shockingly and refreshingly honest in its depiction of sex and sexuality — especially compared to the rest of Marvel's cinematic and televised output, which tends to be heterosexual and vanilla on the rare occasions when it dares to be sexual at all." (yas drag a lil)

  • The show is giving the MCU its first lesbian character and possibly its first queer lead.

  • "Jessica Jones' queer relationship scenes are clearly integral to the internal lives of major characters, and are not played for laughs or for shock value. They're sad, sweet, and subtle."

  • The author says that the sex scene between Luke Cage and Jessica is "delightfully unsubtle".[Spoiler (click to open)]After Jessica eggs him on, Luke warns her that she might not be able to take it. She insists she can so he flips her and takes her from behind, but she's in control the whole time. The author says that the audience at NYCC was "simultaneously clutching its pearls and leaning forward in titillated fascination".

  • The rest is spoiler-ish so I will leave it to you guys read it at the source if you want to know more about the first episode.

Sarah Gavron Explains Why She Didn't Cast Women of Color in Suffragette



"We interrogated the writ and photographic evidence, and the truth is, it's very, very different picture from the U.S. The U.S. had a lot of women of color involved in the movement, some who were excluded, some who weren't excluded. But in the UK, it wasn't like that, because we had pockets of immigration...it was later, around the war, around the fifties, that really the UK shifted and changed in a really wonderful way to produce what we have today," Gavron said.

Does her explanation justify the lack of women of color in Suffragette?

Days Of Our Lives Killed It's Gay Legacy Character



- A serial killer has plagued Days of Our Lives for weeks, strangling people with (don't laugh) neckties. While most of the victims have been far from fan favorites, consisting mostly of people that needed to be culled from the cast, last week the killer claimed a surprising victim — Will Horton.

- Will famously came out of the closet in 2011 and then married his love Sonny Kiriakis in soap opera's first ever gay wedding garnering the show a slew of press, Daytime Emmys, and GLAAD Awards.

- Will is also the son of Days legacy characters Sami Brady and Lucas Horton.

- Will was originally played by Chandler Massey and was later replaced by Guy Wilson who received tons of backlash from fans.
