Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting Isn’t A Feminist Except For The Fact That She’s Living An Ideal Feminist Life, But Whatever

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting (of “The Big Bang Theory”) told Redbook that she’s not a feminist, which is fine. I really don’t care whether or not a celebrity or anyone else identifies as a feminist, so long as they don’t object at their core to the existence of feminists or feminism and dedicate their lives to making sure that women stay in our place, or whatever.

That being said, here are the things in Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting’s Redbook interview that are making me facepalm a little bit:

  • “She loves taking care of her man—and she’s not ashamed to admit it.” Awesome! Feminism is totally fine with women falling into whatever roles they want to have, even if that’s super-conventional gender roles. The point is that women should have the choice to be whatever we want to be, as should men, and everyone, really. Previously, women really didn’t have a choice, and we still face barriers to opportunity that men don’t. Keep reading »

Jessica Alba On Kissing Your Kids On The Lips: “People Allow Dogs To Lick At Their Mouths”

In a teaser for Jessica Alba’s Redbook cover interview, the magazine shared a “sneak peak” at a few of the star’s juiciest quotes. Spoiler alert: they’re not the least bit juicy.

In her interview, the actress tackles the hot-button issue of parent/child kissing. Jessica is passionate in her belief that parents should kiss their children on the mouth because “people allow dogs to lick at their mouths.”

While I’m not particularly offended by parents kissing their kids on the lips (except in the Stephanie Seymour kind of way, like when they’re adults), I’m not sure that “people allow dogs to lick at their mouths” really sells me on the whole thing. Because … are you French kissing your kids or is this just a mwah on the mouth. There is a difference. The difference is TONGUE. Keep reading »

Faith Hill As Twiggy

Faith Hill posed as three iconic blonds for the May issue of Redbook cover, proving that blonds can be as unique as every highlighted strand on their heads. Although she also posed as Brigitte Bardot and Grace Kelly, her transformation into Twiggy was the most striking. Here’s what Faith said about becoming the mod fashion icon.

It was hard for me to look at myself as Twiggy. I think she was in her late teens when the original photo was taken. And there is a very big difference between a teenager and a 41-year-old! [Laughing] And I’m not talking about the lines on the eyes of a 41-year-old versus a teenager; I’m talking about the wisdom that comes as you get older. You can see through to the soul with the eyes, and with Twiggy, I felt she had such an innocence. When I first looked at myself in the mirror, I saw a maturity and wisdom that Twiggy had not yet experienced. Her version was beautiful and flawless, but for me, as a woman who’s come into her own a little more comfortably, it’s just a different kind of beauty.
