We are so used to girls being slammed by the media and asked inappropriate questions by reporters, we hardly bat an eyelash anymore. But some of our fave celebs have been biting back, and we are loving it. You know we love fashion (duh) but when it’s all women are asked about in interviews it’s a problem. And then you have incidents like Tavi Gevinson being cut down for her age. Um, excuse me that girl has achieved more than most adults ever will. Here are the best moments of our favourite girls showing just the right amount of sass.
When Tavi shut down an ageist insult from the sartorialist. Buuuurn.
“That young people don’t have valid thoughts about the world because they haven’t been alive long enough is sadly a very popular and, frankly, unoriginal sentiment. When I think about that time, I was just responding to the world around me. And I was perceptive enough that I felt like I could make connections to things in my life. I don’t think it was abstract. And I am basically skeptical of any adults who have those kinds of things to say about young people because it seems to always very transparently stem from fear and insecurity. And to be honest, the fact that he’s shorter than me in real life.”
When Emma Watson gave killer advice to a fan
When Rihanna was badass to a seriously sexist question
When Beyonce taught us what to say when someone calls us bossy
When Emma Stone handled a comment with just the right dose of attitude
When Jennifer Lawrence reminded us how unattainable her red carpet look is
When Jennifer Lawrence did it again
When Scarlett Johanson wanted the same questions her colleague got
And when she shut down being asked what underwear she was wearing. Because who even asks that?
When Cara Delevigne told off the haters in the Wall Street Journal.
“So-and-so says you were partying a lot and you were looking this way and you need to lose weight. It makes me so angry. If you don’t want to hire me, don’t hire me.”
