There are so many strong women in the entertainment world; so many who choose to use their platform to advocate for a better future and fight for women’s rights, among many other important issues.
You may have heard of the Big Little Lies star Shailene Woodley. She isn’t just an amazing actress, but she continues to push boundaries and fight for what’s right. Over the weekend, there was speculation about an engagement, specifically that of Shailene and football star Aaron Rodgers, who recently stated in an interview that he got engaged in 2020. People has since confirmed the exciting news.
However, Shailene, like the empowering woman she is, probably doesn’t care about making a spectacle of the news. She’s probably planning her next protest or signing a contract for her next major motion film. Anyway, this post is dedicated to Shailene and all the amazing ladies in entertainment who continue to break down barriers
“Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.”Unknown, but most likely a strong woman
Here’s this week’s entertainment news – the good, the better and the best – because the following women are killing the game.
We love women supporting women, at all ages. There’s a lot of drama that followed Olivia Rodrigo’s release of her song “Driver’s License,” but
Monica Geller Courtney Cox came to the rescue. For a brief moment, the Friends star took the (dramatic) spotlight off of Olivia, whether that was her intention or not. Courtney performed Olivia’s song and killed it – I can almost hear Olivia screaming in pure joy.
While promoting her new movie Bliss, Salma Hayek admitted to once being told she would never be the lead in Hollywood films. And girl, was that ever wrong – so, so far from correct. She said, “They told me my career would die mid-thirties” and that “it was impossible for a Mexican to have a leading role in Hollywood.” Salma is in her mid-fifties, but could easily pass as a woman in her mid-thirties; maybe that’s why her career hasn’t died.
The Weeknd’s Super Bowl (see what I did there?) happened, but this isn’t a sports roundup. And though The Weeknd absolutely nailed his halftime performance, this isn’t about him either. This is about Cardi B in the Wayne’s World/Uber Eats commercial. She entertains, no matter where she is or what she’s doing and this ad was hilariously perfect. She fit right in! I’m so excited that she’s getting the opportunity to showcase her talents in so many different forms. Watch the ad!
Reporters should know better than to mess with Natalie Portman, but unfortunately, they did not know better. After discovering an article about herself posted to Page Six, Natalie was not too pleased. The website claimed that Natalie (currently filming in Australia) was out and about with a baby bump. False. Natalie called them out in an Instagram story and confirmed that she is not pregnant. She went on to say, “But apparently it’s still OK in 2021 for anyone to speculate and comment on a woman’s body shape whenever they want? Do better.” Need I say more? I think not.
Dan Levy has had a great start to 2021 and the actor recently hosted SNL for his first time. However, the real hero is his mom! In true mom-inspired style, she took to Twitter to call out Dan’s old bullies, in the best way possible (see the tweet below). What an amazing mother and strong, powerful woman; good for her for always standing up for what’s right and proving the haters wrong!
Serena Williams is the “GOAT of GOATs.” Tom Brady earned his seventh championship ring this past weekend, which ultimately started a sports debate. Some were quick to call Tom the greatest athlete of all time, as he surpassed Michael Jordan’s previous record of six championship rings. However, further analysis and complete bias towards supporting women leads me (and many social media users) to believe that Serena Williams is the greatest athlete of ALL time. I think the tweet below sums up everything and proves that Serena is indeed the GOAT of all GOATs.
