Mark Hamill Had Some Words for a Youngster Who Was Told That ‘Star Wars’ Isn’t for Girls

Stories – however they’re told – are for whoever connects with them on the other end. Men, women, children, non-binary people, literally anyone…if you like a book or a movie or a television show, then if someone suggests its not “for you,” they’re dead wrong.

My blood is actually boiling at the knowledge that a kid had the stones to tell a little girl that she couldn’t be part of a fandom that doesn’t belong to him.

Luckily, I’m not alone, and the great Luke Skywalker himself is on my side.

First, the post…

Kristal Foster’s 5-year-old daughter loves Star Wars, was wearing her favorite movie-themed shoes to school when a boy in her class informed her that she shouldn’t wear them because the franchise “isn’t for girls.”

She tagged Mark Hamill in the post on the topic, and he responded epically.

First, quoting Princess Leia…

And then he reminded everyone that the films would have ended midway through the first one had Leia not been around to rescue both Han and Luke from certain death.

Other people jumped in on the #StarWarsIsForEveryone – rightfully so.

Oh, I’m sorry… is the galaxy only filled with BOYS?

And Leia! Remember Leia!

Star Wars ladies unite!

And who was the main character in the last three films? Ahem…

The next time you hear someone try to tell someone else that some piece of art or media “isn’t for them,” you have my permission to summon Princess Leia (or Carrie Fisher) and give them a serious piece of your mind.

And maybe a middle finger. Carrie wouldn’t have it any other way.

This is Why More and More Men Are Painting Their Nails

If you see a male with painted toes and fingernails and assume that he’s either a) got a young daughter or b) is somehow living outside the mainstream of masculinity, well, be prepared to change your assumptions, my friends.

The menicure is here, and it looks like it’s gonna stay.

Fashion trends come and go, but I, for one, always cheer for the ones that bring up discussions about freedom and longstanding but useless social constructs, don’t you?

Men painting their nails isn’t exactly new – musicians like Kurt Cobain and David Bowie led the charge in the days of grunge and emo, and actors and other celebrities like Marc Jacob and Jonathan Van Ness are on trend today, along with (according to Mei Kawahiri) Harry Styles, Asap Rocky, and Pete Davidson.

Though it used to be that black nails was the main thing on men, guys today are really venturing out – choosing different colors and, honestly, living their best lives.

Whether they take a leap with color or stick to neutrals that are easy to match, men getting manicures and pedicures is becoming a mainstream thing.

Anything that challenges us, promotes inclusion, celebrates diversity, or encourages people to express their most authentic self is on the menu – and on trend – in today’s society. And as a women who has had the socially acceptable option to paint her nails every day of her adult life, I can vouch for the fact that a little pop of color can make you feel happier, more confident, and just give you a reason to smile.

There’s no reason to deny those things to men who want to paint their nails, so the next time you see a guy sporting his happy menicure, make sure to pay him what I’m sure will be a well-deserved compliment.

Kobe Bryant Made Hundreds of Kids Happy Through the Make-A-Wish Program

It’s still hard to believe that Kobe Bryant is really gone.

And as time goes on, we uncover more of what he did to make a difference and encourage others to do their best.

If you didn’t know, in addition to winning five NBA championships and an Oscar, he also granted more than 200 wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Bryant said it was important for him to give back:

“Basketball is something that will come and eventually go, the beauty in that is trying to use that time to inspire others and provide some sort of escape for them. I think that’s something that lives well beyond the game of basketball and is probably most important.”

Kobe clearly had a positive impact on the families he met through Make-A-Wish. One dad, Patrick Moore, shared his account of Bryant’s visit with his son Henry. He recalled how Kobe went above and beyond to make Henry happy.

“Kobe asked why we didn’t bring anything to sign and he sent an assistant to the Laker’s store in the Staples Center. The assistant brought back a TON of stuff and Kobe signed it all. He held Henry through much of our visit. The memorabilia is still all over Henry’s bedroom. “

You can see the original post below.

Henry asked to meet Kobe Bryant for his Make a Wish. It was soon after his transplant and he had recently turned eight…

Vanessa Bryant took to Instagram to thank fans who are feeling the heartbreak of losing Kobe.

View this post on Instagram

My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri. We are also devastated for the families who lost their loved ones on Sunday, and we share in their grief intimately. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever. Thank you for sharing your joy, your grief and your support with us. We ask that you grant us the respect and privacy we will need to navigate this new reality. To honor our Team Mamba family, the Mamba Sports Foundation has set up the MambaOnThree Fund to help support the other families affected by this tragedy. To donate, please go to MambaOnThree.org. To further Kobe and Gianna’s legacy in youth sports, please visit MambaSportsFoundation.org. Thank you so much for lifting us up in your prayers, and for loving Kobe, Gigi, Natalia, Bianka, Capri and me. #Mamba #Mambacita #GirlsDad #DaddysGirls #Family ❤

She went on to ask those fans who want to make an impact to donate to the Mamba Sports Foundation and to another fund supporting the other families who perished in the accident.

Kobe’s life well-lived – even if it ended too soon – and he did what he could to make his fans happy.

Allow Me to Introduce You to the ‘Taste of Streep’ Instagram Account That Pairs Meryl Streep with Food

There’s an Instagram page out there for everything these days, and this is one of the weirder ones that I’ve come across.

The folks behind this page Photoshop the one and only Meryl Streep into various food photos, and it is truly odd.

Take a look for yourself…

1. Totally tubular.

Dark Moments from Kids’ Movies That Come out of Nowhere

Have you been in this situation? You’re watching a movie with your kids or your nieces and nephews that is supposed to be family-friendly – and BAM! A totally disturbing and dark moment pops up and traumatizes everyone?

These people sure did, and they shared them with all of us. So take note if you have kids…you might want to avoid some of these flicks.

These responses come to us from the Buzzfeed Community.

1. Clayton’s death, Tarzan (1999)

“The scene when Clayton gets tangled in vines and is essentially hanged. That isn’t even the worst part…because then the animators decided to add in the shadow of his hanging body swinging in the trees in the next scene. In a KIDS movie. Who even thinks of these things??? I’m still scarred.”

2. The nightmare, All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)

“When Charlie has that nightmare that he’s in hell and sees some scary-ass demons and shit. Like WTF…who is this movie for?!”

3. The scream-sucker, Monsters, Inc. (2001)

“Honestly? The big scream-sucking machine scared the shit out of me as a kid. No one thinks about it, but like…forcing kids to scream and then collecting it??? It’s dark. It still scares me. It’s horrifying.”

4. Hellfire, The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)

“I recently watched this again as an adult and was horrified by Frollo’s whole song. The tone of the movie is dark from the beginning, but this really takes it to a different level. All the implications blew my mind…it’s a children’s movie. Ugh, I was disturbed.”

5. The shoe’s dip, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)

“The scene when Judge Doom dips the shoe in the ‘Dip.’ It still bothers me to this day. I hate it so much.”

6. Leslie’s drowning, Bridge to Terabithia (2007)

“Of course if you read the book, you already knew about it, but if you just went into the movie thinking it was a fantasy kids movie, then you were in for a shock. It really does come out of nowhere and in NO WAY did they advertise this ‘twist,’ which made it more difficult to process for me.”

7. The opening sequence, Up (2009)

“The opening sequence leading to the miscarriage. While small children might not understand completely what was happening, an adult woman who has gone through the same definitely does…”

8. The marionettes, Polar Express (2004)

“GOOD GOD, who let Robert Zemeckis make motion capture animated movies?!”

9. Todd’s abandonment, The Fox and the Hound (1989)

“My dad always taught me that, when you adopt an animal, you make a commitment to care for them for their whole life. It was traumatizing to see her drive him into the forest and just leave him there. His little face was so confused…it’s heartbreaking.”

10. Pink elephants on parade, Dumbo (1941)

“Nothing messed with me when I was a little kid as much as that part when he gets drunk and we’re subjected to ‘Pink Elephants on Parade’ song. Absolutely not.”

Yikes! Kids, cover your eyes!

Do you know of any really creepy moments in kids’ movies that caught you by surprise?

A Kansas City Chiefs Player Celebrates Super Bowl Victory by Paying the Adoption Fees for 100+ Shelter Dogs

The Kansas City Chiefs are champions for the first time in 50 years, and one player celebrated by doing something great for his community…and for a whole lot of animals.

Chiefs defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi paid the adoption fees for every dog that was available at the KC Pet Project shelter. The total was more than 100 pooches looking for a forever home.

KC WINS! We are so excited to announce that the Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle, Derrick Nnadi is choosing to…

Posted by KC Pet Project on Sunday, February 2, 2020

Tori Fugate of the KC Pet Project said, “KC Pet Project cares for over 10,000 pets a year, so partnerships like this are so wonderful to help our pets find loving, forever homes. We’re thrilled and honored that Derrick Nnadi chose to do this to help us save lives in Kansas City. Our community is on cloud nine following last night’s win and this is such a heartwarming story to go along with this huge victory.”

When Nnadi played college football at Florida State, he adopted a shelter dog named Rocky. He said, “All my life, I always wanted a dog. When I first got him, he was very timid. It made me think of how other animals, whether they’re owned or in a shelter, are feeling scared and alone.”

Nnadi has been active in charity work in both Kansas City and his hometown of Virginia Beach, Virginia, since he joined the NFL in 2018.

And here’s a bonus: the story about Nnadi’s generosity became so popular that TV host Rachael Ray decided to pay for dog food for all the 109 pooches once they get adopted from the KC Pet Project.

Great work to everyone involved! And go Chiefs!

Jennifer Aniston Surprised a Bunch of ‘Friends’ Fans Who Were Visiting Central Perk

Friends is the show that keeps on giving, am I right? It seems like the hit TV show is more popular than ever, even though it’s been off the air for almost 16 years. Especially with all the rumors and innuendo about a possible Friends reunion, people are pretty fired up about the series.

As the debate swirls about whether or not there will be a reunion, Jennifer Aniston decided to have some fun with Friends fans for The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The Ellen show is taped on the Warner Bros. lot where Friends was filmed, and the iconic “Central Perk” coffee house from the show is still there for fans to visit.

Jennifer Aniston decided it would be a fun prank to pop out from behind the couch in Central Perk and scare the daylights out of fans who were visiting. That’ll be a good story to tell their friends and family when they head back home from vacation.

Here are some of the hilarious reactions. Be sure to scroll to the end to watch the video.

Enjoy this video of Jennifer Aniston in action scaring fans. It’s a hoot!

Now, wasn’t that delightful! Let’s keep our fingers crossed for that Friends reunion. Hopefully those Hollywood bigwigs will make it happen, and soon.

So what do you think? Will there be a Friends reunion or will they just let the hit show’s legacy stay in the past? Judging by this photo from a few months ago, it looks like it might be ON.
