The heart-wrenching reason grandparents should see themselves on-screen.

Ageism is alive and well in Hollywood. Is it harming seniors’ health?

Could casting decisions in Hollywood be shortening our lifespans?

It may seem like a provocative thought, but it’s not as far-fetched as you think.

When you look at the 25 films nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars over the past three years, less than 12% of the characters in them were 60 years or older — with very few being women or minorities — according to a new study from Stacy L. Smith, director of the Media, Diversity, and Social Change initiative at the University of Southern California Annenberg.

What’s more, few of those characters played roles pivotal to the plot, and many were misrepresented or created with ageist stereotypes in mind, Smith found.

This is a problem with ramifications felt far outside Hollywood.

Past studies suggest stereotypes about aging can have devastating effects on older people.

Research out of Australia’s Charles Sturt University in 2015 found negative stereotyping about growing older — that it will bring about loneliness and frailty, for example — influences how older people see themselves and their peers. This, in turn, can effect a variety of other important factors relating to how a senior’s life unfolds: how fast they recover from illness, their overall mental health and well-being — even how long they live.

When Hollywood does nothing to counter these stereotypes — and, in many cases, exacerbates the problem — it can cause harm off-screen.

“If I don’t see myself in the movies, what does that say about me?” Yogi Hernandez Suarez told NPR. She’s a chief medical officer at health insurance provider Humana, which funded the USC study. “Am I not a valued person? Should I be preparing for a future, or will I just sort of disappear at a certain time?”

Media representation isn’t just a matter of political correctness — it’s a matter of bettering lives.

Thanks to the hard work of activists and increasingly discontented moviegoers, the 2017 Academy Awards on Feb. 26, 2017, are more racially diverse than they’ve been in years. Films like “Moonlight” and “Hidden Figures” — and the artists who brought those projects to life — have snagged much-deserved nods, bringing stories centered around the experiences of people of color, women, and the LGBTQ community into the mainstream. To audiences around the globe, that’s made a difference.

In the same vein, it’s crucial the stories we see on big and small screens include complex older characters living rich lives and adding value to the narratives which they’re part of — not used as tropes or glorified extras.

After all, our grandparents are watching. They deserve better.

Kellyanne Conway brought ‘alternative facts’ about feminism to CPAC. Let’s clear that up.

She may not be a feminist, and that’s OK. But let’s get a few things straight.

Many words can describe counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, but “feminist” isn’t one of them. Just ask her.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Conway discussed what it was like to be the first woman to manage a successful presidential campaign. The discussion, facilitated by conservative commentator Mercedes Schlapp, eventually centered around the label “feminist,” and whether Conway considered herself one. She doesn’t, and she suggested that feminists “in a classic sense” are “anti-male” and “pro-abortion.”

GIF from ACU/YouTube.

Speaking of feminism from an objective viewpoint, Conway’s probably right not to claim that title for herself.

Prior to working for the Trump campaign, Conway’s most well-known client was then-Representative Todd Akin from Missouri, a man who torpedoed his shot at winning a Senate seat when he justified his opposition to abortion, even in cases of rape and incest, by saying, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

In the past, Conway also suggested that “femininity is replacing feminism as a leading attribute for American women,” and she has said, “If women really want to be taken seriously in the workforce these days, looking feminine is a good way to start.”

More recently, Conway has suggested that perhaps mothers shouldn’t take roles in the White House. She also criticized a 17-year-old girl for asking how Conway rationalized working for someone facing multiple sexual assault accusations, and she “didn’t see the point” in the Women’s March on Washington.

If she doesn’t want to call herself a feminist, that’s fine. What’s not fine is the mischaracterization of who feminists are and what they stand for.

First off, feminists (as a group) aren’t “anti-male.” Maybe some individuals are, but that’s not some core requirement. Conway once said, “I challenge anybody to show me where [man-hating] is not part and parcel of the feminist movement.” And, while some feminists may very well call their views “pro-abortion,” a more accurate view of the broader feminist population would be that they believe decisions about what people do with their bodies are best left up to them — and not the government.

GIF from ACU/YouTube.

Nor do feminists, as a group, see themselves as victims of circumstance, something Conway has said on multiple occasions. Feminists simply acknowledge that obstacles remain in the fight for gender equality. The pay gap, sexism in the workplace, and a host of other issues stand between the world we live in now and a world with gender equality.

None of this is to say that it’s impossible for a woman to succeed in the world. Conway is proof that, yes, women can find success and achieve their goals.

But just as Obama being elected president didn’t close the book on racism, a handful of successful women doesn’t signal the end of sexism.

Conway doesn’t have to be a feminist. But the rest of us won’t give up until we’ve reached true equality for all women of all ages, all races, all religions, and all sexualities.

How to feed an extra 2 billion people by 2050? A shift in how we grow food.

By 2050, the Earth’s population is expected to hit 9 billion (!). That means we’re going to need to get creative to feed 2 billion more mouths every day.

How in the heck are we going to do that?

We already live in a world where nearly 800 million people suffer from chronic hunger. How are we supposed to get that number down while also sustaining a growing population?

One answer lies in our cities:

For those who live in big cities around the world, having access to fresh, naturally grown food is not a given. That’s where this inventive solution comes in.

Posted by Upworthy on Monday, February 13, 2017

This video illustrates the need for food to be produced closer to where people live. As more people are moving to cities, hauling food products hundreds or thousands of miles from farms to grocery shelves isn’t a sustainable option. That’s why farms are moving into cities.

To feed everyone, we have to rethink where our food comes from.

The urban population of the world has been growing incredibly fast. In 1950, there were 746 million people living in urban areas. By 2014, that number jumped to 3.9 BILLION. And it only keeps increasing.

Within the next 30 years, it is expected that 70% of the world population will be located in urban areas, with most of the growth occurring in less developed countries.

The good news: We already produce enough food to feed 9 billion people. It’s just not reaching the people who need it, and a third of all food produced is wasted. In other words, the major problems are access and waste.

In the United States alone, we waste enough food to fill up a 90,000-person football stadium EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

One way to help with both the access and the waste problems is to grow food where people already are: in cities.

Image ​​by Junko Kimura/Getty Images.​ ​

When you picture a farm, a city setting doesn’t typically come to mind. But these days, it’s becoming quite common to see farms on the tops of buildings, in small, communal plots of land, or in abandoned warehouses that beam with artificial light.

The traditional concept of farming in rural “farm country” has been broadened to more dense environments around the world, in cities with all types of weather and climate.

Image via iStock.

Yes, that means you can even grow food in the middle of a desert city like Dubai. Pretty cool!

Farming closer to home means the food is fresher, people are healthier, there’s less food waste, and the environment is happier because of shorter distances from farm to table. And not only that, but urban plots can be up to 15 times more productive than rural ones, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.  

Growing food in urban areas is one answer to feeding more people, but it’s just one piece of the puzzle.

To feed the world’s growing population will require an equal focus on traditional agricultural practices in order for us to make real impact.

Image via Esther Havens/The Adventure Project. ‌

Up to 80% of the food consumed in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa is produced by female and smallholder farmers — many of them female. If we really want to close the hunger gap and feed more people, we must properly invest in their resources and growth to help boost their incomes and productivity with their yields.

There’s a lot of work to be done before we’re successfully able to feed an additional 2 billion people. It will take a global effort to find a sustainable balance between old and new agricultural practices.

It’s cool to see that work in progress — quite literally, growing from a rooftop in the middle of a city.

Trump just made bathrooms less safe for trans students. Here’s what to do now.

Transgender kids desperately need our help.

On Feb. 22, 2017, President Trump reversed guidelines set by the Obama administration to protect transgender students in schools.

The guidelines allowed trans students to use the bathroom that matches their gender, a move that helps keep students from feeling uncomfortable — or even threatened in dangerous situations — by having to use the restroom that corresponds to the sex they were assigned at birth.

By reversing Obama’s guidelines — which had yet to be enforced after being blocked in court — Trump is allowing state and local officials to make their own decisions on the “bathroom debate.” This will inevitably lead to schools enforcing discriminatory policies, forcing trans students into hostile spaces.

How’s a student supposed to learn in an environment where they’re not welcome to be themselves?

Photo by Arno Burgi/AFP/Getty Images.

If you’re upset over Trump’s decision, don’t feel helpless. Be there for a transgender kid who needs your love and support.

Here are 15 ways to show trans kids you’re in their corner:

1. Know the facts.

On one hand, research finds many transgender people are harassed or physically assaulted while being forced to use a restroom that doesn’t correspond with their gender. On the other hand, the idea that ensuring trans people equal bathroom access will somehow legalize the right for a predator to wander into a women’s bathroom is a classic case of fear-mongering born from a myth.

Use the facts to make your case when discussing trans rights with those who want to learn more.

2. Know what policies are in place in your own community’s school district.

Trump’s reversal will likely leave schools making more decisions about bathroom regulations. Find out what (if any) policies are in place at the schools near you and advocate for trans students who need you in your own backyard.

3. Become a Trevor ambassador for the Trevor Project, the nation’s leading LGBTQ youth suicide prevention organization.

As calls to their 24/7 hotline surged in the aftermath of the election, the Trevor Project was one of the critical groups providing aid to young people in desperate need.

Many young trans people will rely on them in the months ahead, and volunteers will be crucial. You can become a Trevor ambassador in a city near you and spare some time to help the group do its life-changing work.

4. If you know a transgender kid, reach out to their parents to see if it’s OK for you to send your love.

A sweet card, a warm hug, or a trip to the ice cream parlor — just to say “You are loved” — can make all the difference. If you know a transgender adult, reach out to them and see how you, as an ally, can best help efforts toward equality in your own community.

Image via iStock.

5. Fund the resistance through Lambda Legal, a group using the law to help protect trans kids from Trump’s policies.

“While the Trump-Pence administration wages its war on children, we at Lambda Legal will redouble our efforts to protect transgender and other vulnerable kids,” the group said in a statement. “We are already in court fighting for transgender students, and we are prepared to sue any school district that discriminates in the wake of the Trump administration’s actions.”

6. Write a reassuring message to trans students online using the #ProtectTransKids hashtag.

The hashtag, which began trending Feb. 22, is being used to send notes of love and solidarity to anyone who could use it.

7. And while you’re on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, share this image to let everyone know where you stand.

1 in 3 transgender youth has tried to commit suicide. These kids need more protection, not less. #ProtectTransKids

A post shared by Liz Plank (@feministabulous) on

8. If it’s the right fit for you, become a member of Fierce, or tell someone else about the opportunity.

A New York City-based group, Fierce runs youth-led campaigns and leadership development programs so more young, queer people of color feel empowered to influence the world around them today and in the years ahead.

9. Get involved with the Human Rights Campaign.

HRC is the nation’s leading political advocacy group for LGBTQ rights, and equal bathroom access is one of its most important issues.

10. Find out if the schools in your community have a Gay-Straight Alliance.

Again, Trump’s decision will give state and local school districts more room to discriminate when it comes to bathroom access. This makes it even more crucial that you know what’s happening in the schools in your own neighborhood.

The Gay-Straight Alliance is one group that operates at the local level, helping build bridges between straight, cisgender students and their LGBTQ peers.

Find out if there’s a GSA program in your own school district. If there’s not, help start one.

11. Take part in a local or national event held by GLSEN, a group committed to making sure every grade school in America is safe for LGBTQ students.

Among many services, the nonprofit does extensive research on how and why schools are failing queer kids and provides resources to educators to help fix the problems.

“While the Trump administration may abandon transgender students, GLSEN won’t,” the group’s executive director, Dr. Eliza Byard, said in a statement.

12. Buy a shirt from Trans Lifeline and help save lives.

Similarly to the Trevor Project, Trans Lifeline runs a hotline for any transgender person in need. Trans Lifeline, however, is operated solely by trans staffers for trans people, which can make a difference to those seeking help.

If you purchase a shirt from their online store, proceeds go toward helping the group fulfill and expand its mission of saving and bettering lives.

13. Learn more about the causes of LGBTQ youth homelessness, and fight for change.

It’s vital we protect trans kids in schools, but we can’t forget about the thousands of LGBTQ youth across the country made homeless simply because of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Groups like the Ali Forney Center, the Happy Hippie Foundation, My Friend’s Place, and the True Colors Fund are fighting every day to help homeless LGBTQ youth access stable housing, employment, and an education.

14. Watch and share this powerful video featuring a trans girl and her loving family on Facebook.

The more people see it, the more hearts and minds will open.

15. Donate to the Hetrick-Martin Institute.

The nonprofit, which began as a grassroots effort in 1979, now provides social programs — like arts and culture, job readiness, and health and wellness initiatives — for LGBTQ people ages 13-24 in and around New York City. It does great work, but it needs your help.

Transgender students have always needed our love and support, but this is a particularly critical moment when each one of us can make a difference.

Whether it’s donating what you can, sharing a note online, or simply giving a warm hug, you might be the person a student — maybe in your own community — needs this very moment. Show them you care.

17 delicious foods you can thank immigrants for.

Immigrants are in the spotlight lately. And not in the good, Patti LuPone/Audra McDonald duet kind of way.

LuPone (left) and McDonald (right). Photo by Drama League/Flickr.

As promised, the Trump administration is advancing its plans to boot millions of immigrants from the United States — and reviving its order to stop them from coming here in the first place.

To hear all your Sean Spicers, your Stephen Millers, and your Kellyanne Conways tell it, the measures are necessary to stop, well, pretty much everything bad currently happening in America — from job-stealing to crime to terrorism.

Convincing Americans that immigrants are more than the sum of their worst stereotypes means winning back some hearts and minds, but these days, it can feel futile to appeal to America’s heart or its brain.

But perhaps — perhaps America’s stomach is still willing to listen.

Immigrants don’t only make America great; they make it delicious. The people who risk their livelihoods and occasionally their lives to come here are often more than happy to share their secret recipes with us. Without them, we’d have nothing to eat … nothing good, anyway.

Here are 17 of the top contributions to America’s culinary scene by refugees, ex-pats, and immigrants.

Try not to drool on the keypad.

1. You wouldn’t know about pretty much all the Chinese food you like if it weren’t for refugee-turned-immigrant-turned-master chef Cecilia Chiang.

Chang and kung pao chicken. Photos by John Parra/Getty Images and Sodanie Chea/Flickr.

Chiang, who survived the Japanese invasion of China before immigrating to San Francisco in the 1960s, introduced America to the delicious, umami, stir-fried meat pile known as kung pao chicken at her restaurant, the Mandarin.

2. This giant paella wouldn’t exist if chef Michael Mina hadn’t moved here from Egypt.

Today was one for the books. #MinaMoments

A post shared by Michael Mina (@chefmichaelmina) on

Mina, the guy with the oar, was born in Cairo, immigrated to the U.S. and settled in Washington state, proceeded to open over a dozen restaurants in cities across the country, win a Michelin star, write a cookbook, appear on Gordon Ramsey’s “Hell’s Kitchen,” launch a media company, and, in this photo, somehow managed to combine rice, shellfish, and nautical equipment into something so appetizing you would probably win a free T-shirt for finishing it.

3. Without lax 19th century immigration laws, America would have been denied its birthright: the Bud Light Straw-ber-Rita.

Anyone who watched this year’s Super Bowl just for the commercials knows that Adolphus Busch was a hardscrabble German immigrant who trudged through miles of mud and ominously high grass to found the all-American beer company that makes the U.S. the perennial world leader in drunken high school reunion softball games.

4. You’d have to travel to an Eastern European war zone to enjoy these perogis.

Photo by Veselka/Facebook.

In 1954, Ukrainian refugees Wolodymyr and Olha Darmochawal came to New York City and founded Veselka in the East Village, serving these soul-altering fried meat, cheese, and potato pouches by the crock-load to NYU students who have crushed one too many Bud Light Lime Straw-ber-Ritas.

5. This ridiculous pulled turkey burger with Indian spices, candied bacon, and masala fries wouldn’t be available in Elvis country.

Maneet Chauhan and the turkey burger. Photos by Theo Wargo/Getty Images and Chauhan Ale and Masala House/Facebook.

One great thing about being alive in 2017 is that you can find South Asian-Southern fusion sandwiches for less than $20 in the middle of the Bible Belt like it’s no big deal thanks to immigrants like Indian-American chef Maneet Chauhan (you might know her as a frequent judge on “Chopped”), who opened Chauhan Ale and Masala House in Nashville in 2014.

6. We wouldn’t know the gastronomic perfection that is surf and turf served over two cheese enchiladas.

Richard Sandoval and surf and turf. Photos by Neilson Barnard/Getty Images and La Hacienda/Facebook.

Before Richard Sandoval was a “Top Chef Masters” contestant, Bon Apetit Restaurateur-of-the-Year Award winner, and international food star, he was just a Mexico City kid with a dream. That dream? To put fried onions on top of steak on top of enchiladas with some lobster tail and risotto getting freaky on the side, as his La Hacienda in Scottsdale, Arizona, did on Valentine’s Day 2017.

7. Anything with Huy Fong sriracha in it would have to be seasoned with a far lesser hot sauce.

Thanks to erstwhile humane values of decades past, America’s hottest condiment was given unto us by a refugee — David Tran — who fled his native Vietnam on the ship Huy Fong in the 1970s. Had he come four-and-a-half decades later, it’s likely he would have wound up in Canada and invented spicy maple syrup or whatever. (Actually, to be honest, that sounds pretty great. Please, immigrants from tropical climes living in Canada, invent spicy maple syrup.)

8. The Swedes might have chef Marcus Samuelsson’s La Isla Bonita all to themselves.

With all the problems in Sweden that are totally so real that everyone knows about them, it’s no wonder that Samuelsson (who was born in Ethiopia and is another frequent “Chopped” judge) skipped town for New York City, bringing his brand of soul food to Harlem’s Red Rooster — including this otherworldy mashup of tres leches cake, rum, passion fruit, and banana.

9. Detroit would be bereft without its iconic chili-onion-mustard dogs.

The precise origin of the Michigan-favorite Coney dog has been debated for decades, but pretty much no one contests that it was invented by Greek immigrants, notably brothers Bill and Gust Keros around 1919, when they discovered — after millennia of flailing by the best chefs in the world — that the ideal condiment for meat was goopier meat.

10. You wouldn’t even be able to dream about Jose Andres’ ibérico bacon cristal bread uni.

Jose Andres (L) and tapas (R). Photo by Larry French/Getty Images; Jaleo/Facebook.

It’s also known as coca con arizos de mar — or “expensive ham ‘n fish pizza” — and Andres serves this magical creation at his D.C. tapas restaurant Jaleo. The award-winning chef, who hails from Spain, was one of several dozen who closed his restaurants on Feb. 16, 2017, in protest of the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

11. Vending machines, bodegas, and gas station convenience stores nationwide would be thousands of dollars poorer without Flamin’ Hot Cheetos on the shelves.

More than “The Great Gatsby,” more than “Rudy,” even more than Katy Perry’s “Roar,” the story of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos is the story of the American dream. Working full time as a janitor at a Cheetos factory (!), Mexican immigrant Richard Montañez took home some defective, un-dusted Cheetos after an equipment breakdown, sprinkled some chili spices on them, and presented his creation to corporate bigwigs, who promptly put them into production. The tangy corn tubelettes quickly became the company’s #1 selling snack, and Montañez was promoted to executive vice present of multicultural sales and community activation, having successfully pulled himself up by his sticky-dusty bootsraps.

12. Cronuts would not be a thing.

Dominique Ansel and a cronut. Photos by Noam Galai/Getty Images and Chun Yip So/Flickr.

Assuming you could get a cronut, you would be first-born-child-level indebted to Dominique Ansel, the French-born chef who debuted the monstrously scrumptious croissant-donut hybrid in New York City in 2013. Unfortunately, four years later, you still can’t get a cronut.

13. Your airport layover would be 1,000% less tolerable without this margherita pizza from Wolfgang Puck Express.

Puck and pizza. Photos by Michael Kovac/Getty Images and Jeff Christiansen/Flickr.

Stuck in Downtown Disney World or delayed getting back to Milwaukee? You could do a lot worse than this gorgeous bubbly cheese pie by Puck, Austria’s greatest gift to America since the toaster strudel.

14. You’d have to eat this mouthwatering soft-serve in a cup instead of a cone.

If there’s one thing certain cable news outlets will never fail to remind you, it’s that Syrian immigrants are very, very, super-duper scary. Perhaps nothing in history illustrates this better than their most terrifying invention to date, the ice cream cone. The edible frozen treat vessel was created by Abe Doumar, who debuted his creation at the St. Louis Exposition in 1904, the culmination of the Middle Eastern migrant’s dastardly plot to improve mankind and delight children of all ages around the world forever and always.

It’s not just that immigrants invent food we like to eat. They pretty much cook everything we eat too.

Roughly 20% of restaurant cooks are undocumented, and an even greater share are foreign-born — up to 75% in some cities. That means that immigrants are responsible for feeding you even the down-home comfort food you enjoy, including…

15. This cheeseburger from Hardee’s…

16. …this stock photo apple pie….

17. …and this American flag sheet cake.

Immigrants deserve a place in America. And not just because they fill our tummies with tasty victuals.

They enrich our communities and keep our culture varied and interesting. They do the jobs most of us don’t want to do. They pay hundreds of billions of dollars in taxes and contribute to our economy in countless measurable and immeasurable ways.

Immigrants and refugees don’t come here to get Americans fired, steal our wallets, or blow us up. Most of them come here for a better, safer, more secure life.

They make all of our lives richer — and more delicious — in the process.

5 Celebs Who Surprised Fans In Cars

More Celebrity News ►► http://bit.ly/SubClevverNews

If you’re going to jump into an Uber or a Lyft why not have your driver be Demi Lovato or Justin Bieber? We’re bringing you a rundown of 5 celebs who surprised fans in cars.
You never know who your driver will be and for these few lucky passengers, they had no idea they were in for the ride of their lives.
Demi Lovato gave some riders the ultimate surprise when she posed as a lyft driver while on tour in Denver Colorado. She kept her identity under wraps by wearing sunglasses and a hat and even sang some Camp Rock jams with passengers, but still it wasn’t until the end of the trip that passengers realized who was in the driver’s seat. Take a look:
Throughout the ride Demi made comments about herself in an effort to drop hints about her identity, but the passengers had no idea. Jimmy Kimmel also opted for lyft when he surprised a young dentist on his last day of work, prepping to travel back to Africa when Jimmy picked him up for a lyft ride he’ll never forget.
After the passenger expressed that he was excited to go home because he missed his family, Jimmy took him on a shopping spree to a Hollywood gift shop for some unforgettable souvenirs.
Nick Jonas is yet another celeb who has nearly given passengers heartattacks by surprising them with his face. Nick didn’t drive for lyft, but instead surprised three girls who thought they were going on a school field trip, but were actually about to be chauffeured by a Jonas bro.
So much fun. But Nick wasn’t the only Jonas Brother to surprise fans because Joe also took on the challenge by becoming a certified uber driver. He picked up a girl and her co-worker to take them to Pinkberry and then stayed to eat froyo WITH THEM. Talk about a good day. Turns out that Joe didn’t just become an uber driver for the heck of it, but was actually doing it for a commercial, but way to commit.
And lastly, Justin Bieber also surprised fans in a lyft by picking them up for a ride around town. Needless to say, a good time was had by all.
I want to hear which celeb you would want to chauffeur you for the day so let me know in the comment section below and then click right over here to see a magical mermaid transformation on Beauty Trippin.

Emma Watson Sings “Belle (Reprise)” In NEW Beauty And The Beast Promo

More Celebrity News ►► http://bit.ly/SubClevverNews

Listen to Emma Watson sing Beauty and the Beast’s new TV promo spot…
Thanks to Disney’s latest Beauty and the Beast trailer we can FINALLY hear what Emma Watson’s singing voice will sound like in the film…

Spoiler alert: Emma Watson has quite a lovely singing voice, but would we expect anything less from our favorite IRL Hermione Granger? No, because she is a perfectionist in all things, including playing one of Disney’s most iconic princesses.

The TV spot features Emma singing the classic “Reprise” from the Beauty and the Beast Soundtrack, and she’s reminding us all of our childhood love for the smart, brave and adventurous Belle with every note…

That being said, there *is* a slightly cringey moment at about 7 seconds into the trailer where if you listen closely the music seems to be auto-tuned, but we’re hoping that it’s just some weird trailer editing rather than an indication of what the entire soundtrack will sound like…
Okay, so once you hear it you can’t un-hear it, but Emma is still perfect for this role and we’ll be singing along with her throughout the film no matter what.

And in other exciting Beauty and the Beast news, Disney also released a new poster for the film that features the real-life versions of Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, and the rest of the hilarious yet cursed inanimate objects from the classic.
I have to say Ewan McGregor is ROCKING that Lumiere mustache, but how come all the other characters are shown in their human states EXCEPT for Beast? Uh oh, is Disney hinting that they’re changing the original ending on us by having Beast stay as a Beast at the end?! I hope they know the wrath of Twitter hate that will fall upon them if they change one of the most iconic endings in animated movie history…especially since no one wants to watch Emma Watson make out with those horns at the end.

And that, my friends, is one of the first mainstream documented uses of the word frenemy. Ya know. Friend + Enemy = Frenemy! And ever since Carrie Bradshaw uttered the clever amalgam of language, the word has not only become part of our cultural lexicon, but we’ve seen this kind of relationship pop up allll over the place – especially when it comes to celebrities.

And even though we like to imagine celeb BFFs being inseparable and perfect, let’s not forget – they’re human too, so they’re bound to run into some friendships that will turn sour. Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera – we’ve been dealing with “frenemies” for quite some time.
