Kristen Stewart asks Jesse Eisenberg insulting questions to prove a point about sexism in the media.

Imagine you can ask Kristen Stewart ANY question you want. Ready? Go!

Here are some reasonable choices:

  1. What's your favorite role you've ever played?
  2. What was it like working with Jodie Foster on "Panic Room" and who are the actresses you look up to the most?
  3. Which script was funnier, "Adventureland" or "Breaking Dawn — Part 2"?

Sadly, all entertainment reporters seem to care about is:

  1. Who are you dating?
  2. No, but seriously, who are you dating?
  3. C'mon, tell us who you're dating!

A person can only take so many questions about Robert Pattinson, am I right?

But this is just the way it is for most actresses. While Stewart's male costars get insightful interview questions about career and craft, women are forced to talk about their latest hairstyle and walk the "manicure runway" — yep, that's a real thing.

But! In a new skit from Funny or Die, Kristen Stewart gets a little revenge by turning these sexist interview questions on Jesse Eisenberg, her costar in "American Ultra."

In the hilarious video, Jesse and Kristen sit down to interview each other, only to find out they've been given each other's question cards.

Things get interesting when Kristen starts asking Jesse all kinds of inane questions usually reserved for, well, her.

"Levi's," Eisenberg says. But "I don't know if that's a person."

Stewart moves on to the next question, a classic:

Eisenberg, shockingly, is not with child.

And, of course, no interview of a Hollywood actress would be complete without at least one mention of breasts:

Finally, Eisenberg's had enough.

"I just feel like a lot of the questions you're asking me feel like they're ... not about the movie," he says.

Exactly!

There's a difference between trying to humanize an actress and reducing her to the most basic of female stereotypes.

Sticking only to questions about the movie or her career could probably get a little boring, but how about we show a little creativity and insight? How about we go a little deeper than what dress she's wearing or whether she feels like her biological clock is ticking?

Or, at the very least, how about we start subjecting men to the same kinds of vapid interviews women have endured for so long?

If this video with Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg is any indication, this kind of red carpet equality is long overdue:

True

When a pet is admitted to a shelter it can be a traumatizing experience. Many are afraid of their new surroundings and are far from comfortable showing off their unique personalities. The problem is that's when many of them have their photos taken to appear in online searches.

Chewy, the pet retailer who has dedicated themselves to supporting shelters and rescues throughout the country, recognized the important work of a couple in Tampa, FL who have been taking professional photos of shelter pets to help get them adopted.

"If it's a photo of a scared animal, most people, subconsciously or even consciously, are going to skip over it," pet photographer Adam Goldberg says. "They can't visualize that dog in their home."

Adam realized the importance of quality shelter photos while working as a social media specialist for the Humane Society of Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

"The photos were taken top-down so you couldn't see the size of the pet, and the flash would create these red eyes," he recalls. "Sometimes [volunteers] would shoot the photos through the chain-link fences."

That's why Adam and his wife, Mary, have spent much of their free time over the past five years photographing over 1,200 shelter animals to show off their unique personalities to potential adoptive families. The Goldbergs' wonderful work was recently profiled by Chewy in the video above entitled, "A Day in the Life of a Shelter Pet Photographer."

Vanna White appeared on "The Price Is Right" in 1980.

Vanna White has been a household name in the United States for decades, which is kind of hilarious when you consider how she gained her fame and fortune. Since 1982, the former model and actress has made millions walking back and forth turning letters (and later simply touching them—yay technology) on the game show "Wheel of Fortune."

That's it. Walking back and forth in a pretty evening gown, flipping letters and clapping for contestants. More on that job in a minute…

As a member of Gen X, television game shows like "Wheel of Fortune" and "The Price is Right" send me straight back to my childhood. Watching this clip from 1980 of Vanna White competing on "The Price is Right" two years before she started turning letters on "Wheel of Fortune" is like stepping into a time machine. Bob Barker's voice, the theme music, the sound effects—I swear I'm home from school sick, lying on the ugly flowered couch with my mom checking my forehead and bringing me Tang.

This video has it all: the early '80s hairstyles, a fresh-faced Vanna White and Bob Barker's casual sexism that would never in a million years fly today.
