Emma Watson On Hollywood, Belle, And Just Wanting To 'Hang Out With My Cats'

Emma Watson is set to bring another iconic figure to life in the live-action version of Disney’s iconic Beauty and the Beast, and much like her role as Hermoine Granger, Watson is making the role of Belle her own. For this version of Beauty and the Beast, this means infusing the character with Emma’s own passion for gender equality and her desire to leave the world far better than she found it. Emma opens up about her contributions to Beauty and the Beast, her life as a cultural icon, and her secret yearning to just stay home and find comfort in her pets.

[Image by Walt Disney Studios] In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Emma Watson shares that making Beauty and the Beast for Disney left her feeling that she had finally transitioned from child star to a successful actress as an adult. The live action adaptation helped Watson develop her skills and her authority in a way because she was able to influence how her character developed in the film. For this version of Beauty and the Beast, Emma ensured that, while Belle is still a Disney princess, she’s also a strong female character. While filming Beauty and the Beast, Ms. Watson insisted on certain changes that would give her greater appeal as a feminist character and a more worthy role model for young girls. For instance, Emma was determined that Belle’s first scene, a shot which establishes the inner nature of the character, didn’t portray her as servile or docile in any way. “I was like, ‘The first shot of the movie cannot be Belle walking out of this quiet little town carrying a basket with a white napkin in it,’ ” Says Ms. Watson. “‘We need to rev things up!’” Taking things further, Emma introduced the idea that Belle would be an inventor in this version of Beauty and the Beast because such an ambition would enable her to really change things for the women in her village. For instance, Belle creates a washing machine that frees up time, so women will have more time to read. In the setting of the film, women in the village were largely illiterate and not encouraged to seek education. In that respect, Watson’s character is as revolutionary as Emma has been in her own personal life as an enthusiastic leader in the feminist movement.

Speech Emma Watson Is Still Tackling Life In Hollywood Emma Watson dishes on her life as a celebrity. [Image by John Phillips/Getty Images] The Harry Potter film franchise went a long way towards launching Emma Watson’s career, and since that series of films reached its conclusion, the actress has continued to build an impressive list of credits. As People reports, Emma is now as iconic as the characters she has played, yet as an actress, she’s still compelled to justify turning down roles. Watson shares her thoughts on having to explain to her agents and eager studio producers why she’s choosing some roles and turning down others. “But what’s the point of achieving great success if you feel like you’re losing your freakin’ mind? I’ve had to say, ‘Guys, I need to go back to school,’ or ‘I just need to go home and hang out with my cats.’ People have looked at me and been like, ‘Is she insane?’ But, actually, it’s the opposite of insane.” Watson confesses that it’s not just her career that has fallen under unnecessary scrutiny, revealing that she feels uncomfortable in even talking about her personal life because that inevitably draws her love interest into a circus for which they never asked to be included. Emma says she feels responsible in a way because talking about a current boyfriend seems like an invitation to the paparazzi. “I’ve noticed, in Hollywood, who you’re dating gets tied up into your film promotion and becomes part of the performance and the circus,” Emma Watson says. “I would hate anyone that I were with to feel like they were in any way part of a show or an act.” Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, and Luke Evans, hits theaters on March 17.

Jon Stewart Tells Media To Try Out Journalism Instead Of Bashing Donald Trump

Jon Stewart was one of the most popular and intelligent late night talk show hosts when it came to politics and he was missed a great deal during the 2016 Presidential Election. However, Stewart made a surprise appearance on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show last night and was back on form with some very poignant comments about the current political climate. It was clear that Jon Stewart was not in any way defending President Donald Trump. He said that Trump lies more in one press conference than CNN lies in an entire year on the air – and Stewart admitted after that he hated CNN and still feels that way. However, the harshest Jon Stewart Donald Trump comments came against the media. [Image by Evan Vucci/AP Images] Jon Stewart said that Donald Trump had broken up with the media, and that is because the United States President is as “thin-skinned and narcissistic as you are.” However, Jon said the media needs to just move on and has some interesting advice. “It is time for you to get your groove back media, cause let’s face facts, you kind of let yourself go a little bit… obsessing 24-hours a day, seven days a week about this one guy… Take up a hobby. I recommend journalism.” That statement seems harsh but it also makes sense. It seems like no matter what television network a person turns to, the media is talking about their relationship with President Donald Trump while there are many world and national issues that could take precedence. Similar strained relationships took place many years back with Richard Nixon but two reporters – Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward – ignored most personal attacks and just focused on the journalism required to expose the Watergate Scandal. Even former President George W. Bush came out on the Today show and gave his opinion on the media and their relationship with President Trump. Much like Jon Stewart’s Donald Trump thoughts, President Bush said that the media is important. “We needed the media to hold people like me to account. Power can be very addictive and it can be corrosive, and it’s important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power.” With that said, Jon Stewart made it clear that the media needs to practice good journalism by keeping things non-biased and honest or people will stop believing the truth when presented to them. [Image by LM Otero/AP Images] Journalism ethics is a college course that all professionals take and it is important to remain ethical when covering the United States President. Bush said that it is important to keep this media completely open and independent. “It’s kind of hard to tell others to have an independent free press when we’re not willing to have one ourselves.” The attacks have become very personal lately. Vanity Fair reported that when Donald Trump refused to attend the White House Correspondents Association it proved he was winning the war against the media. The win came when the organization’s president defended President Trump’s decision to limit access to media members such as CNN and The New York Times. ” I don’t think that people should rush to judgment to suggest that this is the start of a big crackdown on media access.” When it comes to the Jon Stewart Donald Trump comments on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show last night, it sounds like the former talk show host believes that the media should not focus on their lack of access and instead work on actual journalism outside the President’s office. Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward didn’t crack Watergate by talking to Richard Nixon’s press secretary. In much the same way, Jon Stewart hinted that media that might have been dismissed by President Donald Trump should work on journalism instead of just talking about the nasty break up.

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Are Not Fighting Over French Property [Debunked]

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are not fighting over their Chateau Miraval property in Southern France. Radar Online is the culprit of the rumor. “RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that Brad Pitt is refusing to sell his and Angelina Jolie’s doomed holiday home in the South of France — much to her fury! According to an insider, the dispute over the mega-million-dollar Chateau Miraval, where the couple was married in 2014, is ‘holding things up’ in their acrimonious divorce.” An “insider” says that Angelina has wanted to sell that place for years, but Pitt always managed to convince Angelina to hold off. Brad allegedly wants the property to be held in a trust for the kids. Many of the commenters after the article are critical of Angelina Jolie. “She’s acting like she never knew Brad or she never got married to him. I’m starting to believe she used him to have more biological kids,” says one commenter. “She is very mean and spiteful,” says another. Angelina Jolie is not fighting Brad Pitt over French property. [Image by Stefan Rousseau/Getty Images] However, according to Gossip Cop, the article appears to be fabricated. “But Gossip Cop spoke with one of our contacts close to the situation, who cast doubt on RadarOnline‘s take. While our source declined to comment on the specifics of Jolie and Pitt’s divorce negotiations, we’re exclusively told the above claims are inaccurate,” says columnist Shari Weiss, who adds that the tabloid website has been consistently inaccurate in regards to stories about Brangelina’s split. Both Pitt and Jolie have been under close scrutiny since their divorce was announced in September. However, the most damaging rumors have all been plastered on Angelina. Recently Celeb Dirty Laundry claimed that Angelina Jolie is quitting Hollywood against her will. “However, sources are now saying that Angelina is still considering both acting and directing in films, although it seems as though executives aren’t as keen to work with her as they used to be.” The article adds that because of all of this, Jolie may be “forced” to quit Hollywood. However, Gossip Cop once again intercepted and exposed another lie. Angelina Jolie is not quitting Hollywood. [Image by Jordan Pix/Getty Images] “Angelina Jolie is NOT being forced to ‘quit Hollywood’ following her divorce from Brad Pitt, despite a manufactured report. Gossip Cop can bust this claim. We’re told it’s false,” says columnist Holly Nicol, who adds that Celeb Dirty Laundry is the same website that falsely claimed Jolie dropped down to the “D-List” after she divorced Brad Pitt. According to the New York Daily News, Angelina Jolie did talk to Good Morning America recently about the divorce. “The actress attempted to avoid the glaring elephant in the room during an appearance on Good Morning America Tuesday, but she was noticeably uncomfortable making bizarre pauses when co-anchor George Stephanopoulos questioned her about her family.” “We are, we are focusing on the health of our family. So we will be, we will be stronger when we come out of this because that’s what we are determined to do as a family,” Jolie is quoted as saying, adding — hesitantly — that Brad Pitt is a wonderful father. However, many people didn’t take Angelina Jolie’s quotes seriously. After all, it was Jolie who allegedly spread bad stories about Brad Pitt in order to win the PR relations war against her ex-husband. Early “leaked” reports on the divorce said that Pitt abused their son Maddox. However, after a full investigation, it was revealed that Pitt did not hit or abuse Maddox. We will be hearing plenty more of what caused the Brangelina divorce in the near future. However, for now, it’s quite clear that Brad is beating Angelina in the PR battle.

WWE News: Former World Champion Says He Won Title Because Brock Lesnar Left WWE

Hard work and perseverance is what leads to championships in WWE, but there are also those times when luck just seems to be in the favor of the superstar. Most of the time, the company has plans in place for several weeks or months and adjusts them as needed, but injuries and other unforeseen circumstances can alter what they have on paper. One Attitude Era superstar says that is exactly how he won a title. John Bradshaw Layfield is currently a member of the announce team on SmackDown Live, and casual or new fans may not know that he used to be an in-ring competitor. The man known as JBL wrestled under a number of different personas and gimmicks over the years, and he even held a large number of titles. JBL is a former Intercontinental, United States, European, and Hardcore Champion during his time in the ring. He was the 10th Grand Slam Champion in the history of the company, and that came in 2004 when he defeated Eddie Guerrero for the WWE World Championship at The Great American Bash. [Image by WWE] ESPN U.K. interviewed Layfield about a number of different topics, and one of them was his time as World Champion. Believe it or not, he was actually the longest-reigning WWE Champion on SmackDown, but he told a rather interesting story regarding how his title win came to be. Sure, he earned it, but there was much more to it. “It just happened that I was in the right place at the right time. It was late in my career, and I thought my career was over. I tore my biceps and had two hernia surgeries. I didn’t know if I would do much of anything again, and all of a sudden you have people get hurt. “Kurt Angle got hurt, Brock Lesnar had left the company, and [WWE] needed somebody against Eddie Guerrero right away. That’s when the JBL character was created.” It was in late 2004 that JBL’s Acolytes tag team partner Faarooq finished up his wrestling career, and Bradshaw changed his entire gimmick. This is when the John Bradshaw Layfield character was born, and due to Angle’s injuries and Lesnar leaving the company, there was no one else to step up and take on Eddie Guerrero for the title. Brock Lesnar left the company and ended up moving to Japan to wrestle there. Those that may not remember the feud between Guerrero and JBL really need to go back and watch it. One of the biggest moments was their match at Judgment Day 2004, which saw Guerrero bleeding so badly that he lost enough blood to feel sick from it for the next two weeks. [Image by WWE] There is no denying that Bradshaw is an iconic name in the world of professional wrestling, and the way things fell, he was really in the “right place at the right time” as he said. Due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, the title went to him, and he had a memorable feud with the late Eddie Guerrero. As he told ESPN U.K., Eddie is the reason that JBL even came into existence. “We did the storyline where we gave Eddie’s mother a heart attack in El Paso, which almost got me killed. I literally had a police escort out of El Paso and all the way to Odessa. The police told me not to come back, that they thought I would get killed. It was that great. We set an attendance record at Staples Center [in Los Angeles] a few weeks later, and because of Eddie Guerrero, he molded my character. Eddie wanted my character to work. “If it had been anybody but Eddie Guerrero, you would have never heard of JBL. But because of Eddie, I had that incredible run, and it was just the right time. I had the perfect foil in this incredible Latino star, who was one of my best friends.” During his time as an in-ring competitor for WWE, John Bradshaw Layfield had a lot of title reigns, but he only won the WWE Championship on one occasion. This newly released info by JBL that states he was put in that position due to Kurt Angle’s injury and Brock Lesnar’s departure makes you look at things a bit differently as a fan. You never know who will be the next person to hold the title, and that means you never want to miss a moment. [Featured Image by WWE]

Meanwhile, she’s also been starring in Vanderpump Rules since the series’ premiere in early 2013. As fans may know, Vanderpump Rules is based out of one of Vanderpump’s West Hollywood restaurants, SUR Restaurant. Vanderpump also owns PUMP Lounge in West Hollywood and Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills.

As for Lisa Vanderpump’s future with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the source added, “She has gotten so incredibly wealthy off this, but she is tired of the stress that the show causes her.” I am thrilled to announce that, in just 5 days, we will be opening The @VanderpumpDogs Rescue Center in Los Angeles!

Shemar Moore Back to TV: Where Is The 'Criminal Minds,' 'Y&R' Star Headed?

Criminal Minds fans are still missing Shemar Moore’s character, Derek Morgan, but there is good news out for those who would like to see the actor in a new project. Shemar had been teasing his followers that he would have some big news to share soon, and some wondered if he might be doing a project like joining Season 24 of Dancing with the Stars or something like that. The news is out now, and this is an exciting development for the former Young and Restless star. According to Deadline, Shemar Moore will be leading his own series that will air on CBS. The new show will be called S.W.A.T., and it is inspired by the movie of the same name that starred Samuel L. Jackson and a host of other hot actors that was in theaters just over a decade ago. Moore, who left Criminal Minds last year after 11 seasons and who previously played Malcolm Winters on Young and Restless for about a decade, will play the central role of S.W.A.T. lieutenant Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson. The character is stuck in a complicated dynamic of trying to run the S.W.A.T. unit and stay loyal to those on the streets. Adding to the complexity of the new position he holds, Harrelson is unhappy with the reason he ended up in the leadership role, but he is a man who is both calm and ready for a mission. The former Criminal Minds actor will also be a producer on the new CBS project that is inspired by the 2003 film, which itself was inspired by a 1975 ABC show put together by Leonard Goldberg and Aaron Spelling. Variety notes that the new series will also star Stephanie Sigman, who became a hot commodity after her role in the 2015 film Spectre with Daniel Craig. People may also recognize her from other roles in shows like Narcos on Netflix or ABC’s American Crime. ‘S.W.A.T’ will also star actress Stephanie Sigman in the role of Jessica [Image by Emma McIntyre/Getty Images] Shemar has been teasing fans via social media for a while now, and everybody has been chomping at the bit to get the big reveal. Moore teased that something new was coming, and the speculation was getting intense. The timing of the actor’s posts about a secret put him on the list of rumors and speculation for Season 24 of Dancing with the Stars, although he always seemed like a longshot. As the wait drove his followers a bit crazy, the former Criminal Minds and Young and Restless actor started to share videos excluding many of the possibilities that his supporters were guessing. Of course, fans of Young and Restless would love to see Shemar return as Malcolm Winters, as the Winters family could certainly use the support, and the actor has made some brief reappearances in the role over the years. Some wondered if it might be possible for him to return to Criminal Minds, especially since the buzz was that Moore and former castmate Thomas Gibson had a tense working relationship, and Gibson has since been fired from the series. Shemar Moore is thrilled to share the news on his new show ‘S.W.A.T.’ [Image by Mike Windle/Getty Images] As much as fans of Criminal Minds and Young and Restless might have been hoping that Shemar would return to one of his former homes, the news that he’s headlining a new CBS project is even more exciting. This is not the first time in recent history that CBS has taken a departing series regular and created a new home for them on another show of their own. Michael Weatherly left NCIS and now stars on Bull, and Alan Cumming has gone from The Good Wife to Instinct. There’s also Christine Baranski’s spinoff The Good Fight, which airs exclusively on CBS All Access and continues the character she originated on The Good Wife. The new S.W.A.T. series is still in its early stages, but CBS has ordered a pilot episode. Who else will star in the show alongside Moore and when can everybody check it out? More details will soon emerge on that front, but at least now Criminal Minds and Young and Restless fans know just what that big secret is that Shemar Moore has been teasing for the past few weeks. Will you be checking out his new show when it begins to air? [Featured Image by Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images]

This suggests that the new season will feature Arya’s direwolf, Nymeria, coming back. “Michael Jorgensen, the chair of AMPIA, told Global News it was a certain animal attraction that drew the producers to Alberta. “I just spent the weekend with the DOP [director of photography] of Game of Thrones in Banff,” Jorgensen said. “They are shooting. It turns out Alberta has the biggest wolves in the world, so they’ve shot a little bit here.” Game of Thrones, which is based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling book series, features six direwolves, one for each of the children of House Stark. Direwolves are an unusually large and intelligent species of wolf. They are also part of the sigil of House Stark. There’s already an Alberta connection. An Arctic wolf named Quigley, who plays a direwolf called Ghost on the show, is trained north of Calgary by Andrew Simpson, the owner and operator of Instinct Animals for Film.” #GOT Season 7 filming: Alberta media association confirms Game of Thrones shooting with wolves -… https://t.co/3a0xaj8Lia #Gameofthrones pic.twitter.com/1DirrVr1dE — Game of Thrones News (@GameofThroneVII) February 28, 2017 While that seems to take care of the House of Stark, the latest Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers from Comic Book tell us what we can expect from House of Lannister. The outlet recently spoke to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who was recently approached in regards to a popular theory surrounding Jamie and his sister/lover, Cersei Lannister (played by Lena Headey). In this theory, Jamie lives up to his Kingslayer nickname and kills Cersei. However, Nikolaj dismissed this common notion as simply a “theory.” “It’s a theory,” Coster-Waldau said, “but it has a beautiful, romantic, tragic thing [to it].It’s probably too obvious.” The series has set up a few different ways for Cersei to finally bite the dust. Tyrion Lannister is now counseling her biggest threat for the throne, and he could be the one to do the honors once Daenerys and her army arrive in Westeros. He already did kill his mom and dad, what’s another family member?” What do you think of this latest round of Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers? Do you believe that the show will come back in July?

Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska is ready to get back in shape just over one month after welcoming her second child, son Watson Cole DeBoer. On Monday, ahead of the new episode of Teen Mom 2, Houska took to Twitter, where she wrote about her post-baby body and said that she is struggling to make time to get back in shape while balancing her parenting duties and career. “Annnnd today I realized just how out of shape I am,” Chelsea Houska wrote in a tweet to fans on February 27, later adding, “Also…it’s almost impossible to get a workout in with a new baby. I swear he senses when I’m about to do something and it wakes him up lol.” Although one fan suggested she take it easy and allow her body to bounce back naturally, Chelsea Houska seemed convinced that would not be the case and informed the fan that she would soon be taking matters into her own hands. “I def don’t think I’m gonna bounce right back, that’s why I’m working out!” she explained. A post shared by Chelsea DeBoer (@chelseahouska) on Feb 17, 2017 at 3:04pm PST Chelsea Houska and husband Cole DeBoer welcomed their first child together, the second for Houska who also shares a 7-year-old daughter, Aubree, with ex-boyfriend Adam Lind, on January 25. Since then, both Houska and DeBoer have been sharing adorable photos of little Watson. Chelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer got married in October of 2016 after crossing paths with one another at a gas station in South Dakota in 2014. In an interview in 2015, Chelsea Houska made it clear that she immediately believed DeBoer was “The One.” However, they didn’t actually speak when they first laid eyes on one another. “I went home to my friend and I was like, ‘I just saw the guy I’m going to marry at the gas station, but we didn’t talk,’” she admitted during an interview with Us Weekly. “And a few days later, he contacted me on social media and was like, ‘Hi. I got gas next to you the other day.’ And I was like, ‘Thank you, Jesus.’” “Honestly, there’s just no one that I’ve met that’s so respectful and just nice and I trust him, which is a big deal, because it’s hard for me to trust people or guys, mostly,” Chelsea Houska continued. “And he’s so sweet, kind of like old-fashioned gentleman type of guy.” Little shark loves his baths @coledeboer A post shared by Chelsea DeBoer (@chelseahouska) on Feb 27, 2017 at 12:00pm PST Chelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer planned to get married before welcoming their first child but in July of last year, Houska revealed their plans had changed. In the post on her official website, Houska shocked fans by revealing that she was expecting a child with DeBoer in February of this year. At the time of her announcement, many fans worried that Houska and DeBoer would postpone their wedding, but instead, they decided to go through with the ceremony and officially became man and wife in October of last year. During the ceremony, Chelsea Houska was proudly sporting a baby bump in her lace wedding gown. While Chelsea Houska is busy with her two children at the moment, she has expressed interest in having a total of four children in the past. During a 2016 interview with People Magazine, the reality star revealed that she would love to have more children once she and DeBoer tied the knot.

West Coast Conference Tournament 2017: Bracket Schedule, TV & Live Stream Feeds

The West Coast Conference Tournament 2017 edition tips off on Friday afternoon as teams will look to contend for an automatic bid to the “Big Dance.” The latest tourney is among several that start early in the month of March and bring plenty of “madness” along with them. Teams will basically be looking to knock off the Gonzaga Bulldogs, which up until recently was a feat that seemed unachievable within the conference, let alone college basketball. As reported by USA Today on Sunday, the No. 1 Bulldogs lost their first game of the season, falling 79-71 to the Brigham Young Cougars. Gonzaga had been on a quest to run the tables and go into the NCAA Tournament undefeated but now will settle for a record of 29-1 overall and 17-1 in the conference. BYU’s Eric Mika was on fire for his team, finishing with 29 points after shooting 10 of 14 from the floor and hitting 9 of his 13 free throw attempts. Mika also snatched 11 rebounds in the win. The Gonzaga Bulldogs suffered their first loss of the season, losing 79-71 against BYU, but are still a No. 1 seed.

I thought that would be a really big emotional thing for us, and an emotional thing for them to have to respond. You beat the No. 1 team on the road the last weekend of the season, it’s good for a lot of reasons.” One of those reasons is to catch the attention of the selection committee ahead of Selection Sunday. As of this report, ESPN college basketball “Bracketology” expert Joe Lunardi has projected just two teams from the West Coast Conference to make the “Big Dance.” Unfortunately, BYU isn’t listed as one of them, as Lunardi has Gonzaga as a No. 1 seed in the West and conference rival Saint Mary’s as a No. 6 seed in the South bracket. BYU is currently third in the WCC right now with an unremarkable record of 21-10 overall and 12-6 in the conference, although they have the huge win over a No. 1 opponent. Now they just need to do a bit more work in the conference tournament this week and weekend. If they can win this tournament in full, which could mean knocking off Gonzaga again, that gives them automatic entry to the “Dance.” As noted via WCC Sports website, tournament play for the men’s first round opens on Friday evening when No. 8 Pepperdine and No. 9 Pacific step onto the court. The winner of this matchup gets the unenviable task of trying to hand Gonzaga their second-straight loss in less than a week’s time. Also on Friday, No. 7 San Diego takes on No. 10 Portland at 8 p.m. local time. These first few games of the WCC Tournament will be shown on BYUtv in regions that have the channel, or live streaming online through TheW.tv, with coverage also available via Twitter. Coverage will switch over to several other networks, with ESPN taking over for the Gonzaga game on Saturday night and continuing coverage through the weekend’s championship.

At 9 p.m., No. 2 seed Saint Mary’s takes on the No. 7 San Diego or No. 10 seed Portland. These games are televised nationally on ESPN2, with live streaming coverage via WatchESPN website or mobile apps, as well as the SlingTV streaming channel service. Viewers can check out a printable bracket for the WCC Tournament via the conference website here. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are still amongst favorites on sports odds to win the bigger tournament. As of this report, the team is listed by Vegas Insider with odds of 10 to 1 to win the National Championship. That ranks them fifth behind Kansas, Duke, Villanova, and North Carolina heading into these crucial conference tournaments. If Gonzaga falls again, expect that No. 1 seed to be in jeopardy ahead of the March 12 selection show. [Featured Image by Alex Goodlett/Getty Images]
