If you were one of the people who found the first Potty Mouth Princesses video disturbing — because young girls were dropping F-bombs to support feminism — prepare yourself for their new video.
In the sequel, the Potty Mouth Princess Posse focus on violence against women, asking, “What’s more offensive, a little girl saying f--k? Or the f--ked up and sexist way society barely lifts a finger when men raise their fists?”
Watch: Emma Watson says men should care about women’s issues
(Warning: This video contains explicit language and features girls wearing realistic-looking makeup that make them appear bruised, battered and otherwise abused.)
The campaign is for FCKH8.com, which is donating 100% of the profits from sales of their “not a wife beater” tank to domestic violence charities. FCKH8 says their last video raised over $30,000 for women’s charities.
Watson launched a gender equality campaign for the United Nations in her role as Goodwill Ambassador for Women in September.
Speaking to Porter, Blanchett said: "I was so f**king proud of Emma Watson's speech at the Un.
"It was brilliant, such an incredible use of her airspace, and really passionate. It was fantastic."
Speaking about how Watson was targeted by hackers threatening to leak a series of purported nude pictures in a direct response to her Un speech, Blanchett said: "It's horrendous. But there's hope.
"There are a lot of things happening in an international sphere, and there are enough women with enough clout to make those shifts happen. Enough is enough. And I hope the Emma Watsons of this world are going to say, 'F**k it'."
Whether you think Barbie is a good role model for little girls or not — and if you’re in the latter camp, maybe you’d prefer “Average Barbie”? — there’s no denying that on her road from surgeon to princess to McDonald’s drive thru worker, Barbara has had a few brushes with controversy.
Photos: Two stars, one style — but who wore it best? You decide!
1. Barbie Babysitter
Nothing controversial about a Barbie that babysits (no matter many jobs she’s had over the years, babysitting forever seems to be Barbie’s main source of income), but why babysitter Barbie reads a book called How to Lose Weight that advises, “Don’t eat!” is a different issue.
2. Slumber Party Barbie
Two years later, in 1965, Barbie is still reading How to Lose Weight, but now she’s going to sleepovers! And one of her slumber party essentials a pink scale that is permanently set at 110 lbs »
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts will fete Ethan Hawke with a career retrospective on Dec. 18.
The event is part of “BAFTA: A Life in Pictures,” a series of onstage interviews in which “some of the film world’s leading talent share insights into the experiences that helped them hone and develop their craft,” BAFTA said.
The series has previously hosted Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Meryl Streep, David Fincher and Cate Blanchett, among others. Recordings of previous events in the series are available at http://guru.bafta.org/features/a-life-in-pictures.
Hawke first came to prominence in 1989 in “Dead Poets Society,” since when he has starred in more than 40 films, including “Reality Bites,” “Gattaca,” “Great Expectations,” “Assault on Precinct 13,” “The Purge” and “Woman in the Fifth.” In 2002, his role in “Training Day,” opposite Denzel Washington, earned him an Oscar nomination for supporting actor.

Nothing gets us giddy quite like an epic celebrity movie cameo.
An A-lister who appears in an often uncredited role with minimal screen time and, we have no idea it's coming — how could we not love that?!
Alfred Hitchcock was the cameo master of his time, appearing in 39 of his 52 surviving films. People loved searching for him like a real life Where's Waldo. Even more recently, Interstellar blew us away with a crazy unexpected cameo that we don't want to give away quite yet…but it got us thinking about other unexpected appearances in movies!
So let's take a look at some of our favorite film cameos of all-time.
Warning: Possible Spoilers Ahead.
Johnny Depp -- 21 Jump Street
Johnny Depp paid perfect homage to his 21 Jump Street roots. Spending most of the role in disguise, he ultimately reveals his identity leaving Jonah Hill's character to declare, "You're like an amazing actor man!"

At the European press conference for Interstellar earlier this month, Sir Michael Caine named 'Sandy Bullock in Gravity' as his favourite sci-fi character. This connected Matthew McConaughey's Cooper with Bullock's Ryan Stone in our minds and got us thinking… Wouldn't they make a great couple (if they could get the space suits off long enough to snog)?
So join us as we go further down this rabbit hole, and pitch more movie characters who should probably swipe right on Tinder and get into each other's pants the first opportunity they get.
1. Cooper (Interstellar) & Ryan Stone (Gravity)
Why They're A Good Match: They're both space-exploring adventurers who've beaten some pretty big odds in their time. They've both had the opportunity to gaze in wonderment at the stars – now let's set them up on a date so they can remember that we're all made of stars and they should be gawking at each other instead. »

Amid the profound changes in the movie business, the first half of the 35th American Film Market has been dominated by the tried-and-true — action, thrillers and sci-fi with A-list attachments — as the six major studios concentrate on mega-budget tentpoles.
No project was more ambitious than Foresight Unlimited’s $120 million sci-fier “Inversion” with director Scott Waugh making storyboard presentations and major territories (Asia, Australia, Benelux, Scandinavia, Spain) snapped up by the weekend.
“I think it’s great news that a picture of this dimension can come out of the indie sector,” said Foresight topper Mark Damon, who packaged “2 Guns” and “Lone Survivor.” “The indies are demonstrating that they can do this kind of movie.”
Lotus Entertainment brought Keanu Reeves and Lorenzo di Bonaventura to Santa Monica to meet with buyers on sci-fi pic “Replicas.” “Buyers have responded very well to our slate since these are all positioned to go wide,” said Lotus’ Bill Johnson. »

Earlier this year, we showed you a bunch of inspirational celebrity photos that were guaranteed to make you smile. But you know what we realized? This year alone was filled with so many amazing moments, we thought we'd take some time to highlight the year we've had. From multiple Jennifer Lawrence shenanigans (like when she face-palmed Emma Watson at Paris Fashion Week) to the hilariously unimpressed faces of Prince George, this year has been quite the trip. Keep reading to reminisce and smile all over again. »
After nearly every celebrity—including Emma Watson, January Jones, and Sarah Jessica Parker—was spotted wearing overalls this past spring and summer, it was only a matter of time before the trend took over the maternity style world, too. Enter Liv Tyler, currently pregnant with baby No. 2, who showed off just how chic the denim onesie can be while running errands in New York City on Friday, Nov. 7. The Leftovers actress, 37—who hammed it up this Halloween by dressing as a "bun in the oven"—was spotted looking cool [...] »
Animated feature Animal Crackers has added some heavyweights to its voice cast. Sir Ian McKellen, Danny DeVito, and Sylvester Stallone will lend their voices to the Blue Dream Studios film about a family whose life is turned upside down when they inherit a rundown circus and a mysterious box of Animal Crackers that turn the person who eats them into the animal they’ve just snacked on. Patrick Warburton, Gilbert Gottfried, Raven-Symoné, Harvey Fierstein, James Arnold Taylor, Tara Strong, and newcomer Lydia Taylor round out the line-up for co-directors Scott Christian Sava and Tony Bancroft.

Daniel is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police and Lena tracks him to a sealed off area in the South of the country, called Colonia Dignidad. The Colonia presents itself as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schaefer (Nyqvist) but, in fact, is a place nobody ever escaped from. Lena decides to join the »

Promotions for the upcoming family comedy Paddington have hit a few snags. First came a trailer that came off more creepy than cute. Then esteemed British leading man Colin Firth bailed from providing the voice of the adored bear from Michael Bond's children's books. But things have been looking up with the crush-inducing Ben Whishaw stepping in, and more recent trailers proving more charming. On this upswing, Studio Canal has unveiled an artistic approach to movie promotion, unveiling a series of Paddington Bear statues that will be placed throughout London. The Paddington Trail will exhibit these bears from November 4th to December 30th. While most of the sculpts of these Paddington statues are identical, each has been issued a custom-paint job, some at the hands of celebs. We've selected our favorites below. Harry Potter star Emma Watson has spread her wings as an actress and activist. So it's fitting »
James Franco is a strange bird, and one who defies categorization. He effortlessly balances the careers of an actor, director, screenwriter, artist, musician, novelist, poet, and teacher simultaneously. Honestly, we don’t know where he finds the time. Does he have a Time-Turner or a flux capacitor? That’s got to be it, right?
Time-travel aside, whatever James Franco’s doing – Is he not sleeping? – it’s working, because he’s about to add another hyphen to his already multi-hyphenate name.
James Franco, stage actor.
Making his Broadway debut, Franco joins the cast of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men as George Milton. Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) joins Franco as George’s well-meaning best friend Lennie, a role that garnered O’Dowd a Tony Award nomination.

It was a big night both for Harry Potter star Emma Watson and for Millie, a hamster who died back in 2000. On Thursday, Watson received the Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year at a ceremony presented by BAFTA Los Angeles. And while she has come far since she first took the role of Hermione Granger, Watson's acceptance speech recalled her earliest acting days. Describing the British film industry as a surrogate family, Watson explained that Millie, her on-set pet, passed away during the filming of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Set decorators responded by building a tiny, »
