Anne Hathaway Shares High School Yearbook Pictures Of Meryl Streep, Scarlett Johansson, Melissa McCarthy, & Sandra Bullock — You NEED To See These!
Ah, the glory days!
In Throwback Thursday fashion, Anne Hathaway took to Instagram to honor her fellow People's Choice Awards nominees for Favorite Movie Actress — none other than Meryl Streep, Scarlett Johansson, Melissa McCarthy, and Sandra Bullock.
That's quite the ensemble!
While some people may dread the resurfacing of their yearbook photos, we don't think these talented leading ladies have anything to worry about! We're just a little disappointed The Intern star didn't include her own!
The 32-year-old star captioned the flashback collage:
Nicole Kidman Was Named After A Dead Baby Elephant! Get The Strange Scoop Straight From The Aussie HERE!
What's in a name?
Basically, we learn that Meryl HATES her own name and that Nicole inherited the Hawaiian name Hokulani from a baby elephant who was living at the Honolulu Zoo when she was born!
Pretty cute, right?
Well, Graham and his team decided to reach out to the zoo and see how Hokulani is doing these days, and they got some pretty upsetting news in return!
Ch-ch-check out Nicole's reaction to finding out her namesake has been dead for decades (above)!
Surprise! Carey Mulligan Gave Birth LAST WEEK & Is Already Slaying It On The Red Carpet — Take A Look!
Where did Carey Mulligan's baby bump go?!
Well, it disappeared because the brunette beauty gave birth LAST WEEK!
On Wednesday, the Oscar nominee made an appearance at the British Film Institute's London Film Festival to promote her latest film, Suffragette — and boy did she certainly shock everyone with her lack of pregnancy.
A source shared:
Meryl Streep & Her Suffragette Co-Stars Are Getting A Ton Of Backlash For Their Controversial T-Shirt Slogan! Find Out Why & See If You Agree!
If you thought Meryl Streep could do no wrong — think again!
The Hollywood legend posed in a recent photoshoot for Time Out London magazine alongside Carey Mulligan, Romola Garai, and Anne-Marie Duff to promote their upcoming film Suffragette!
But the Oscar winner and her co-stars suffered a bit of backlash online for wearing T-shirts that featured what some considered a controversial slogan, which read:
"I'd rather be a rebel than a slave."
The slogan quoted a 1913 speech by women's rights activist Emmeline Pankhurst, whom Meryl portrays in the film, in which she says that if women don't get the right to vote than they are essentially slaves to the men that do:
Meryl for President!
In her upcoming film Suffragette, Meryl Streep plays activist Emmeline Pankhurst, and tells the story of how women won the right to vote in early 20th century Britain.
In an interview released Monday, the Hollywood icon opened up about the challenges women continue to face in showbiz. As one of the most respected advocates for gender equality, the mother of four shared:
"I am a humanist, I am for nice easy balance."
We're right there with ya, Meryl!
So what would she change in order to improve the film industry? The Into The Woods star offered:
"Men should look at the world as if something is wrong when their voices predominate. They should feel it. People at agencies and studios, including the parent boards, might look around the table at the decision-making level and feel something is wrong if half their participants are not women. Because our tastes are different, what we value is different. Not better, different."
If anyone knows what they're talking about, it's definitely her!
When questioned if she's frustrated about being paid less than her male counterparts, Meryl quipped:
"Oh darlin', why ever would you imagine that?"
Ha! Um, duh!
Speaking of silly questions, the 66-year-old can't stand when she's asked:
"'You often play very strong women… Why do you choose…? Blah blah blah.' No man is ever asked: 'You often play very strong men. Why?' It would be an absurd question."
After all this time you'd think gender equality wouldn't continue to be such a huge issue — but we're thankful for Meryl who has fought this battle during her nearly 40-year career!
