A 41-year-old actress should not brag about her SAT score. More
I absolutely love Rebel Wilson so I was thrilled when I heard she would be hosting the MTV Movie Awards. It has been seven long years since a woman has hosted and Rebel is the comedy girl of the moment. Notice I how I haven’t once mentioned her weight. That is because I don’t need to. If Rebel weighed 100 pounds I would still think she was quite funny (that Channing Tatum butt pillow was hilarious) but Rebel seems to not only embrace the fat jokes but promote them and she needs to stop.
We know mentors can make a huge difference in the life of a young career-oriented woman. Everyone agrees, mentors are crucial. Seriously, click any of the words in that sentence for proof that mentors matter in tech, science, academia, and beyond. In fact, the evidence is so overwhelming that you might think that mentors are positive influences no matter what. Enter Charlie Sheen, who is now offering his services as a mentor to Lindsay Lohan.

When the Oscar nominations were announced in January, we noticed right away that women had been completely shut out of at least seven entire categories, including best director. We also knew the ceremony would be hosted by the king of bro humor, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. Somehow, we still didn’t know just how lousy last night would be for women. More
Before celebrities entered the Dolby Theater for Sunday’s 85th annual Academy Awards, they first dazzled outside on the red carpet. Jennifer Lawrence won both Best Actress and best dressed, while hairdos from Salma Hayek and Melissa McCarthy left us scratching our heads.
See who brought the glitz and glamour, and who should have stayed off the red carpet.
In the brave new world of smartphone culture, it can seem like there’s a celebrity nude-photo scandal every other day. Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively, Prince Harry … the list goes on. We’ve ogled their naughty bits and moved on. It’s easy to forget that for the celebrities themselves, these can be pretty miserable experiences. (Unless you’re a cynic who thinks they orchestrated the scandal themselves, of course.) Vanessa Hudgens, the formerly squeaky-clean Disney actress, opens up to Paper magazine this month about her own photo scandal. More
If you have watched Friday Night Lights and/or Nashville, you do not need a primer on why Connie Britton is the best. She plays characters who are strong, confident, warm, charismatic, and smart, and is, I have always imagined, all of these things herself. A fantastic new profile of Britton in the New York Times magazine proves it, and includes some true gems of wisdom on Britton’s unorthodox and brilliant career, which has only become stronger since she turned 40, defying Hollywood stereotypes. Connie, if you’re reading this, please become my best friend and mentor. More

Poor Anne Hathaway. I want to like her, I really do. She’s talented, gorgeous, open, a sincere supporter of some great causes, and she seems pretty down-to-earth despite being an A-list movie star. And yet. Her awards-acceptance tour for her dazzling role in Les Miserables has turned into a round-the-world carnival of irritation. Her latest forehead-slapping acceptance speech came at the BAFTA awards in England. The Daily Mail‘s headline doesn’t mince words: “Anne Hathaway becomes a laughing stock.”
Sixteen year-old actress Rachel Fox, who is known for playing Kayla Scavo on the hit series Desperate Housewives, has taken up day trading when she’s not on the big screen.
She says that she’s really good at it, too. More
Kate Hudson has been famous since she starred in, er, Almost Famous in 2000. But her mom, actress Goldie Hawn is still so proud of her daughter’s work that she takes embarrassing photos right on the street. Say it with me: Awwww. More
The number of women invited to Davos, the famous conference of the world’s biggest business and political elites, has always been a bit of a sore spot. Despite a new quota which requires that the biggest companies send at least one woman for every four men, the percentage of women attending the World Economic Forum (WEF) is at 17% for the second year in a row. Check out this awesome graphic from Quartz to understand how hard it will be to find women at Davos.
The Golden Globes were Sunday and usually we’re not ones to brag, but we were right about a lot of things. Some host-on-Clooney action? Check. A Clinton appearance? Check. A Sarah Palin impression? Almost! Tina and Amy were unsurprisingly amazing as hosts but the real scene-stealer was Jodie Foster’s rambling acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement in film. It was witty; it was emotional; it was a climatic coming out (…we think?). We just had to take a closer look at it.
