From Rihanna To Daniel Radcliffe: 7 Celebrities Who Took Down Sexist Questions From Reporters
A word of warning: Don't mess with the best.
Just because it’s always fun to watch celebrities being sassy AF in the name of a good cause we’ve hunted down a bunch of moments where some of the biggest names in showbiz said a big “f**k you” to the patriarchy.
From Daniel Radcliffe to Rihanna, let’s give a round of applause to the A-lister's who had absolutely no time for questions about their underwear, their favourite sex positions, and/or why some of their relationships hadn’t worked out.
Let's get checking out a bunch of the most shocking secrets stars have revealed about themselves...
The Hills star was put in a seriously awkward situation when a reporter from Sirius XM had the gall to write a mystery question that centred around her “favourite position” in bed. Having absolutely none of it, Lauren paused for a second before pulling out the comeback of dreams: “CEO.”
The singer has dealt with her fair share of sexist questions during her time but fully let rip when she was questioned about lyrics that reflect on her past relationships.
“I think, franky, that’s a very sexist angle to take. No-one says that about Ed Sheeran. No-one says that about Bruno Mars," she argued. "They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriend, their love life. And no-one raises a red flag there.”
Demonstrating some of that notorious J-Law wit, Jennifer had the perfect response when a reporter asked her to describe her outfit choice at the 2013 Golden Globes. “What do you mean?” she asked. “Like this is the top… and this is the bottom.”
The Handmaid’s Tale actress had a completely wordless response when asked to show off her manicure on the 2014 Golden Globes red carpet. Under His Eye? We think not.
Back in 2012, an upskirt photo of Anne Hathaway was snapped just as she was about to start the press round for Les Miserables. And when a reporter quipped “We’ve seen a lot of you lately,” she responded with class and professionalism.
"I'm sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies the sexuality of unwilling participants," she replied. "Which brings us back to Les Mis because that's who my character is. She's someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child because she has nothing."
When an interviewer said that it was a weird experience to think of the Harry Potter star as a sexual being, DanRad pointed out that the media and general public had absolutely no problems at all with sexualizing a teenage Emma Watson. Valid point.
In classic Ri-Ri style, she shut down speculation about her love life during a press event in 2014. “What are you looking for in a man now?" a reporter asked, to which Rihanna replied: "I'm not looking for a man. Let's start there."
Literally the GIF of dreams.
