+ The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Actress Roundtable is here, starring Jennifer Lopez, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Laura Dern and Renée Zellweger. They talked about working in this shifting #MeToo moment in Hollywood, the roles they’ve been most intimidated by, being hyper-sexualized, Lupita Nyong’o is the best, etc. Obviously our TV Team ranked the whole thing by Mommi energy for you.
Carmen: I am not our official Mommi ranker Kayla, but I assume Jennifer Lopez is Number ONE
And Scarlett Johansson would be last place.
Kayla: Jennifer Lynn Lopez is Daddy.
Carmen: …. Kayla you cannot just stop there.
Wait? Are you saying that J.Lo is out of the Mommi race because she is in fact, a Daddy. Is that what’s happening right now?
Laneia: I’m sorry but Scarjo would not be included in the list at all ok bye thank you.
Kayla: Yes I was going to say that next.
Scarjo is also not a Mommi.
It is not a spectrum. Not everyone is a Mommi.
Laneia: Scarjo is cousin vibes at most.
Laneia: The one you don’t know their name.
It’s almost like Scarjo was like can y’all give me the most “distant cousin whose name no one knows”-vibe dress.
And they were like yeah we were already going to do that
+ And finally, in the off chance you haven’t had the opportunity to cry about this car commercial yet.
