Watch a supercut showing why red carpet coverage should be ashamed of itself.

If you had access to some of the most compelling women of our time, you'd think you wouldn't waste it with pointless questions. Then again...

Interviewers could ask any of these women about current events, hobbies, or, you know, about the movies they're in. But they don't.

Actresses often get their dresses for free for the mutual publicity, but it's not all about "who they're wearing" (which, by the way is a really strangely sexual way to ask which fashion label made their dress). Those outfits parading on the red carpet are on some pretty stellar ladies, not hangers.


Actresses are hardly ever asked about their motivations behind their roles, but I bet we could make a supercut of male actors being asked just that question.

Why don't more people ask Viola Davis about her mother, who was a civil rights activist, or Anne Hathaway about her LGBT activism, or Cate Blanchett about anything but "who she's wearing"? I'm pretty sure any question you ask her would be interesting because Cate Blanchett is the best. But if you'd like me to be specific, you could ask her about feminism, because she's been outspoken about that before.

And why don't they ask the men who they're wearing?

Beluga whales are affectionately known as sea canaries for their song-like vocalizations, and their name is the Russian word for "white."

They are sociable animals that live, hunt, and migrate together in pods, ranging from a few individuals to hundreds of whales. However, they are naturally reticent to interact with humans, although some solitary belugas are known to approach boats.

Once such beluga that's believed to live in Norwegian waters is so comfortable among humans that it played fetch with a rugby ball.

The truth doesn't hurt for an elementary school teacher in California who's gone viral for teaching her class an empowering remix of one of Lizzo's hit songs.

Ms. Mallari — who teaches at Los Medanos Elementary School in Pittsburg, east of San Francisco — took the singer's song, "Truth Hurts," and reworked the lyrics to teach her students how to be great.

Lizzo's song made history this year for being the longest running number one single from a female rap artist. The catchy original lyrics are about boy problems, but Mallari's remix teaches her students about fairness, helping each other out, and embracing their own greatness.

The internet was ablaze after notoriously private actor Keanu Reeves, 55, walked the red carpet at the LACMA Art + Film Gala on Saturday with his new girlfriend, artist Alexandra Grant, 46.

It was refreshing to see a man in Hollywood dating a woman who's age-appropriate. Older actors are notorious for being with women half their age.
