Game of Thrones Star Maisie Williams Criticizes Emma Watson's 'First-World Feminism'

Originally posted 12/16/2014 01:45PM

Emma Watson's speech about feminism and gender equality made waves back in September when she announced the launch of the HeForShe campaign in a United Nations address.

The campaign aims to "galvanize as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for gender equality," Watson said at the time, and to correct the misconceptions surrounding modern feminism.

However, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams was not particularly impressed by Watson's speech.

Kit Harington: I'm Not Allowed to Cut My Hair for Game of Thrones

Originally posted 12/01/2014 07:00PM

Fans of Kit Harington's luscious locks can breathe a sigh of relief – the actor who plays Jon Snow on Game of Thrones says he won't (and can't) cut his hair because of the show.

However, he says it's that distinguished coif that keeps him from being able to go incognito when he's out and about.

"I'm more recognizable in public than much better-known actors," he says in the January issue of British GQ, out Thursday. "So many people watch, and I go around looking like my character."

Yes, George R. R. Martin, we know that every man must die. But that doesn't make the deaths on Game of Thrones any less painful to watch. Fortunately, HBO just made sure that many of the fan favorites could stay around for a lot longer.

The principal stars of the hit HBO drama – who include Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) – signed new contracts to keep them around for a potential seventh and final season (and give them massive raises), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

7 of Your Favorite TV Shows, Simpson-ized

Originally posted 09/26/2014 07:00PM

The Simpsons enters its 26th season Sept. 28. Pause and try to absorb that information.

Good?

Okay. Now think about how recognizable and familiar the style of The Simpsons actually is: Can you think of another animated series from the past quarter-decade of American animation that's quite as iconic? Family Guy comes close, but it's still far off.

Which is what's so cool about this collection of art from DeviantArt user ADN-Z. It takes the familiar Simpsons aesthetic and applies it to other popular TV shows, like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. (ADN-Z runs the Draw The Simpsons Tumblr, so he's something of an expert.)
