14 Times Celebrities Stood Up for Themselves Online and Proved That a Good Laugh Can Conquer All
Being a star is not easy. You have to deal with many unpleasant questions from reporters and comments from online subscribers. But many celebrities dare to reply.
She once got the comment, “Ugly!” But the actress posted a photo of herself in a shiny dress and wrote, “I know.”
The model posted a photo of herself reading a book. There were a lot of nasty comments — some of them saying that she hadn’t read a single book in her life. Kardashian replied in a very polite way and said that she had “graduated college.”
During the Grammy ceremony, a reporter said that Taylor Swift might be going home with more than an award because so many men were around. The singer gave the reporter a contemptuous look and said, “I’m not gonna walk home with any men tonight. I’m gonna hang out with my friends.”
During a radio interview, Ariana Grande was asked which she would choose — to do her makeup or use her phone one last time. She replied, “Is this what you assume girls worry about the most?”
During a press conference, the singer was asked, “Your career is very successful, but are you as happy in your private life?” Rihanna replied, “How disappointing was that question?”
After the release of Paper Towns, which was based on a novel, the actress was invited to a show to discuss the film. There, one of the hosts asked her, “Did you get a chance to read it, or do you have no time to sit and read?” Cara Delevingne responded sarcastically, “Actually, I never read books, just scripts.”
After the release of The Avengers, the actors had a lot of interviews. During one of them, Robert Downey Jr. was asked a question about the development of his character, Tony Stark. After that, Scarlett Johansson was asked if she had to go on a diet to play Black Widow.
The actress didn’t like this and said to Downey Jr., “How come you get the existential questions, and I get the rabbit food questions?”
On social media, Ashley Graham posted a collage and wrote that once, her hips were called a “cellulite city.” But she replied, “I now realize these thighs tell a story of victory and courage. I will not let others dictate what they think my body should look like for their own comfort, and neither should you.”
And here’s another situation: a talented girl was criticized for her “extra” weight. The people thought they were prominent experts, telling her to “work out” and “stop eating junk food” because her weight was unacceptable for an actress.
Selena Gomez replied, “You are revolting. Yes, I work in show business, but I don’t care what others think about my appearance. I don’t have to do anything but love myself, do my job, and care about my fans, family, and friends.”
Keira Knightley and Benedict Cumberbatch
When the actors were getting their makeup before the interview, someone behind the camera said to Keira Knightley, “You look a little worn.” Benedict Cumberbatch replied instantly that it was not nice to say to one of the most beautiful women on the planet.
Megan Fox has 3 little kids. Once, she posted a series of photos of her alone. One of the subscribers decided to ask where her kids were.
Fox replied to this comment like this: “Wait, wait. I have kids? OMG, I knew I had forgotten something. Someone, please call the valet at the Beverly Hills Hotel. That’s the last place I remember seeing them. Maybe someone turned them to the lost and found.”
The singer and actress posted a video on social media where she talks about the beauty products she produces. This comment appeared under the video: “Eyebrows and forehead don’t move when you talk. It’s definitely botox.”
The singer just laughed and wrote, “Ha-ha, it’s just my face... For the 500 millionth time... I have never done Botox or any injectables or surgery!!”
In Mad Max: Fury Road, Charlize Theron played a brave woman, Furiosa. During one of her interviews, she was asked, “That rage. Where did it come from?” The actress said, “Surprise. Women have that.”
During the Hollywood Film Festival, a journalist decided to ask Knightley, “How do you balance your career and your personal life?” The actress replied, “Are you gonna ask all the men that tonight?”
In your opinion, should people respond to rude questions and comments? Or maybe it’s best to ignore them.
