Emma Watson is on the cover of Porter this month, and she revealed an interesting new tidbit about her powerful 2014 feminism speech to the magazine. Apparently, prior to giving the now-famous speech, Watson was told to avoid mention of the word 'feminism' altogether:

I was encouraged not to use the word ‘feminism’ because people felt that it was alienating and separating and the whole idea of the speech was to include as many people as possible. But I thought long and hard and ultimately felt that it was just the right thing to do. If women are terrified to use the word, how on earth are men supposed to start using it?

If you missed Watson's speech, or just want to revisit her words, you can catch it in full below:

This story is egggggcellent.

According to Page Six, reality-TV sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner had eggs thrown at them by a disgruntled woman while promoting their new clothing line at a mall in Sydney, Australia.

The woman started throwing eggs at the pair from the top level of a mall, but neither were hit.

"Following an incident at a shopping center in Parramatta around 4:30 yesterday afternoon, a 25-year-old woman from Punchbowl was arrested and taken to the Parramatta police station," a spokesperson from the New South Wales police confirmed to E! News. "She was charged with three counts of assaulting a police officer. The police officers were trying to arrest her and she resisted.

She's just being Miley.

Except she's not Miley. Her name is Mardee Shackleford, and she's a 21-year-old woman from California who looks just like pop star and tongue enthusiast Miley Cyrus.

She resembles Miley so much, that security in clubs has had to help protect her from hoards of fans eager to snap selfies and get autographs.

She enjoys the attention though, she told Daily Mail:

"Several times I have been sitting in traffic and people have slid open the back door of their car and kids will start yelling, 'Miley'," she reveals.

"Sometimes it feels like I am actually famous or a celebrity, just on a really small scale. It's been really fun for me."

And the Academy Award for clumsiest actress ever goes to Jennifer Lawrence.

The Hunger Games star (once again) took a tumble. This time, she was walking the red carpet in Madrid at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 premiere.

This is just the latest fall for JLaw. The talented young starlet has had many run-ins with gravity in the recent past.

Her most memorable fall was when the actress completely ate it while accepting her Academy Award for Best Actress in 2013.

And she fell again on the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards.

Get it together, Katniss! You'll never defeat The Capitol if you keep tripping.

Gabourey Sidibe has no time for your foolishness.

The actress, who plays Becky on the hit TV drama Empire, responded to fans who have turned her recent sex scene on the show into an offensive meme.

Becky recently had some very steamy moments on a roof, and people couldn't stand the fact that Becky could get some while they are still single.

So, Gabby responded.


There you have it. Sidibe has no time for you or your fat-shaming.

She's too busy getting paid.

Things got unintentionally steamy at the London premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 on Thursday.

While leaning over to kiss co-star Natalie Dormer on the cheek, adorably awkward Jennifer Lawrence planted a big smooch right on Dormer's mouth.

Lawrence did her standard quirky hand waves and apologized.

"We just kissed on camera," Lawrence laughed. "And I liked it."

Mockingjay comes out in theaters Nov. 20.

ATTENTION: Kylie Jenner has a broken nail, everyone!

She really wants you to know this. Kylie Jenner—model, TV star, Instagram icon—has a broken nail. Oh, and she also wears black Moschinos.

The teen took to Instagram today in her underwear to speak about her cuticle problems.

Why did she feel the need to post about her broken nail? Or better yet, post about it in her underwear?

For the #likes, duh.

She's following in her sister Kendall's footsteps. Kendall posted a photo of her n*pple earlier this week to celebrate reaching 40 million Instagram fans.

We did this, America. Shame on us.
