Zoe Saldana on Women: 'They Can Fucking Save the Day!'

Zoe Saldana is on the January 2014 cover of Flare; inside, she spoke about the power of women (a wonderful topic that everyone should discuss more often): "Women aren't wimpy... They can fucking save the day! They can support their whole family. They can support their men. Half of my friends make more money than their male partners."

When asked about what it's like to work on male dominated sets, she responded that whenever she feels minimized as a woman, she fights back. It results in "feeling really good about yourself because you stood up for yourself, you mattered, you voiced your presence." She outlined for the magazine her usual plan of attack:

Her "heart racing and sweating buckets," she declares, without blinking, "I'm not happy." And then she states her case: "I understand everything you're saying, but these are the terms we agreed on, and that is why I got on a plane and came out here, and I decided to have your back, and now I don't feel like you're having my back. This character is invisible. She's completely irrelevant, and she should be more."

WOMYN POWER. [Flare, Bossip, Fashion Gone Rogue]

Keira Knightley recycled her wedding dress — she's worn it thrice in its tenure as her belonging. The best part of this Dress Saga is that she wore it on the red carpet before she wore it to her wedding, which is so fun. Though, I mean, I suppose if you have a tulle Chanel Haute Couture dress just lying around, you might as well wear throw it on to get married. [The Cut]

James Franco, ever the artist and unique provocateur (???), posted some sexual Batman photos onto his Facebook fan page. One shows his chest in S&M gear and the Batman insignia. The other, which has been removed for obvious reasons, depicted the upper portion of his head, clad in a Batman mask with a semen-like substance oozing all over it. Really makes you think.

  • Amanda Bynes has been released from rehab into the custody of her mother. According to her mother's attorney, she's "feeling better every day." She'll be continuing outpatient treatment, and she's looking to apply to college to study fashion design. I really, really hope that she continues to recover and stay healthy. [People]
  • This picture of Kris Jenner and a hoard of her demon peers clustered around a seal isn't new; however, apparently Joe Francis (The Worst Man In The World) frequently RENTS the poor animal to play with, which is so unacceptable and gross. [DListed]

  • Here are some pictures of Prince Harry and Alexander Skarsgard on their race to the South Pole, which I still cannot believe is a real thing. People don't talk about the South Pole Race enough. For good measure, they've thrown in a shirtless picture of Alexander Skarsgard from True Blood. He is probably not shirtless frequently on his race to the South Pole. [E!]

  • If I read one more thing about Kris Jenner and Ben Flajnik "secretly hooking up" I am going to throw all my valuables into the ocean and roam the beaches barefoot, clad only in rags and singing a series of mournful sea shanties. [Gossip Cop]
