Michelle Obama & Charlize Theron Team Up To Deliver Inspiring Advice To Young Girls — 'We Have To Raise Our Own Bars'
What a dynamic duo!
On Tuesday, Charlize Theron and Michelle Obama teamed up to deliver some amazing advice at Glamour's The Power of an Educated Girl event in New York. Considering the two are both strong women and have daughters, we think they were the perfect choice for the speaking engagement!
The inspiring duo, who both aim to increase young girls access to education, strongly advised the audience to forgo a boy's attention for personal empowerment.
In fact, Michelle joked that if she cared about what other people thought, she wouldn't be married to the President of the Untied States today! Obama said:
"Let's just be clear you don't want to be with a boy that's too stupid to know you're a smart, young lady and I want to encourage all of us as young women, as older women, we have to raise our own bars, you will not be successful hanging around people who drag you down. There is no boy at this age that is cute enough or interesting enough to stop you from getting your education. If I worried about who liked me and who thought I was cute when I was your age, I wouldn't be married to the President of the United States."
Preach, girl! All too often women give up their dreams for men!
Theron echoed the mom of two's statement, adding:
"There is nothing sexier than a smart woman. We have been told to live by a certain mold, especially women, and it's time to break it and it's up to us to do that. Stop waiting for men to do that, look in the mirror and see yourself and say I am sexy, I am attractive, I am smart, I am intelligent, I am powerful, I have a voice, I look cute in these jeans. Yes, I don't have long hair, I have short hair but I am still a girl and I'm still hot."
Woot! The actress definitely knows what she's talking about, especially since she's raising two kids solo! Not to mention the gorgeous gal has been involved in women's right organizations for years.
Hopefully these two pair up again sooner than later — women need all the influential advocates they can get!

Michelle Obama Can't Wait To Do WHAT When She Leaves The White House?! Find Out In This Funny Late Show Clip!
You might think Michelle Obama has everything in the palm of her hand, but even being the First Lady of the United States has its drawbacks!
FLOTUS stopped by The Late Show Monday night where Stephen Colbert reminded her that she only had a little over a year left at the White House.
Surprisingly, the 51-year-old revealed the family was "counting down" to the days where they could return to life as normal civilians!
The First Lady then explained that there were certain controls the First Family is deprived of that she can't wait to be allowed to do again — like going to Target!
But buying stylish apparel at affordable prices doesn't top this other tiny luxury Obama has been deprived of! Find out what she misses the most in the video (below)!
Michelle Obama Stuns In Custom-Made Black Vera Wang Gown Beside Her Impressed Husband At White House State Dinner!
First Lady Michelle Obama attended a White House state dinner with her husband, President Barack Obama, and even though the President was there to meet with Chinese leaders, it was Michelle who stole the show.
Michelle wore a custom Vera Wang dress, set off the shoulder and showing her famously-toned arms off to the point where even the President himself couldn't help but be impressed!
She shared more on Instagram before the dinner (below):
That. Would. Be. AMAZING!
"We're petitioning to get Pres. Obama on the show."
But before you roll your eyes and assume a petition won't actually accomplish anything, get this: producers have been talking to the White House directly! Anthony dished:
"They watch the show. They love it. We know them so we've been dealing with them and their people and hopefully they'll say yes."
The actor first learned the Commander-In-Chief and his wife were fans of the sitcom back in January. He says when he met the powerful pair, they gushed about how much they love his show! How awesome!
The whole thing is actually kind of overwhelming to Anthony, but in the best possible way! He said:
"Who would have thought I would be like, 'You know, we're talking to POTUS about being on our show,' while I'm on the red carpet at the Emmys because I'm nominated for that show?"
We really hope Barack and Michelle agree to appear on the ABC program! That would just be the coolest!!! Would U watch their episode, Perezcious readers?

Looks like somebody is trying their hand at reality television!
Michelle Obama is going to appear on the upcoming season of Project Runway Junior!
The fierce First Lady will be gracing our TV screens by challenging the aspiring fashion designers — ages 13 to 17 — to create a garment that will be sold on Land's End's website.

Michelle Obama has been fighting childhood obesity over the past five years with her Let's Move! campaign, which is helping to get kids more physically active!
On Thursday, the First Lady appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to launch her new initiative: FNV!
In the clip, FLOTUS explains that the campaign encourages kids to make healthier choices about food, specifically their fruits and vegetables!
Though the campaign title was a bit confusing for Kimmel, who thought FNV was more of an explicit threat to children to "eat your effin' vegetables"!
Grab some broccoli and check out the funny clip (below)!
