A few days ago, Busy Philipps showed off her new tattoo on Instagram. As with any celebrity tattoo the comments ran the gamut from outright supportive to speculative and judgmental.

The irony, of course, is that people's constant judgment is precisely what Philipps' tattoo addresses, so critiquing her choice is essentially proving the its point.

The brand new tattoo features her favorite illustration for her upcoming memoir "This Will Only Hurt A Little," and embodies the ethos Philipps has adopted into her own life.

Allowing other people's opinions to dictate your life can be a prison for anyone, but the pressure is multiplied when you're a woman in the public eye.

A lot of her fans loved the tattoo and the carefree message it spread.

But there were some critics concerned about what Philipps' two children would glean from the profanity.

After receiving several responses concerned about how the tattoo's use of the F-word might influence Philipps' children, she jumped in to share exactly what she plans on telling the kids.

Philipps was quick to share that she has no intention of hiding the tattoo from her kids, but instead will openly share the sentiment with them.

Her unapologetic response fully summed up why she got the tattoo, there is simply no time to care about the opinions of strangers, and ironically, that won over the comments section.

Andrew Garfield with Stephen Colbert.

Andrew Garfield came onto “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” to promote his new movie, “tick, tick… Boom.” What he gave instead was a truly touching story about love and loss, with a refreshing and relatable twist.

The sweet moment comes at the four-minute mark of the interview, where Colbert asked Garfield how playing Broadway composer Jonathan Larson (who died suddenly of a heart issue at the upswing of his creative career) helped him process the unexpected loss of his mother.

Instead of wishing the pain away, Garfield states, “I hope this grief stays with me.”

Jimmy Fallon #MyFamilyIsWeird.

It’s that time of year again, the holiday season is when we get the pleasure of spending way more time than we’re used to with our families. For those of us who’ve moved away from our immediate families, the holidays are a great time to reacquaint ourselves with old traditions and to realize that some of them may be a little strange.

Every family seems to have its own brand of weirdness. In fact, I wouldn’t trust anyone who says that their family is completely normal.

On November 18, “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon gave everyone a reason to celebrate their unique families by asking them to share their favorite stories under #MyFamilyIsWeird. The responses were everything from odd holiday traditions to family members that may have a screw (or two!) loose.

Here are 17 of the funniest responses.
