Queen of social media, Chrissy Teigen, has raised a vitally valuable question about the differences of interviewing men and women.

The world has a pop culture fascination with Chrissy and her husband John Legend's relationship; they're both witty, socially aware and created ADORABLE children.

However, there's taking an interest in their family life, because they do share quite a lot with their following, but there's also taking questions way too far.

Chrissy revealed this week that John constantly gets asked, "How do you deal with your wife", and we are not happy. 

She tweeted a thread about the type of questions her husband gets asked in interviews, and it just seems like some MAD double standards to us; 

"I feel like a very common question when interviewing john is basically “how do you deal with your wife” and … I don’t love it." We wouldn't love it either, because she would never get asked how she deals with John.

She elaborated on the question and how she feels about it, and it's relatable as always. 

"It happens a lot. “Does she ask you if certain things are okay to say?” …it’s just very weird to me," she said. 

"No. He doesn’t. I don’t care. and he doesn’t care. End of question." she tweeted, continuing the thread. Shut that sh*t down, Chrissy. Asking how you "deal" with your wife implies that she's difficult to live with, and causes hassle in his career.

Chrissy has her own illustrious career, and yet never gets asked the same question about her husband.

"He usually does the standard “No…she knows what she’s doing…” but it’s not even that. It’s just that I am a different human than him? It is the most common question with him. Please stop."

Rightfully so, Chrissy said John usually shuts the question down fairly easily, but emphasised that she's actually a different person than him with her own life and goals, who isn't just tied to him while he goes out and earns.

She concluded;

"I’m not mad at anyone who has asked this. I get that we are very different. It happens a lot though and I’m just not very into it. You don’t ask me how I deal with watching MSNBC every night or what I do while he’s silent for a week."

Damn straight, Chrissy. They're basically implying that she's mouthy and loud and controls the voice in the household, and how does he COPE with that as a husband?

Teigen isn't afraid of using her social media platform and sharing her opinions on mum-shaming, body-shaming, IVF, postpartum depression and the political situation in America right now.

Translation:

By asking John Legend but not Teigen about his coping mechanisms when it comes to his partner, the basic tone of the question is that it must be a hardship to be married to an outspoken woman, we think.

*Eye roll* The man has an EGOT (An Emmy, several Grammys, an Oscar and a Tony) and THAT'S the most common question he gets asked? How does it feel being married to an opinionated and thoughtful lady?

We can think of far more complex things to ask the hugely successful musician, to be honest, that don't involve the notion of a woman using her voice for empowerment. They're separate humans with separate careers, people.

Jennifer Lawrence has been absolutely loved UP with art dealer Cooke Maroney for almost a year, and her publicist announced the pair's engagement earlier this month.

We're delighted for the 28-year-old Oscar winning actress, but we're really just DYING to see the ring. J-Law has been photographed with it multiple times since the proposal, but today is the first time a high-resolution snap has been taken of the ring.

From grainy, distance pictures to a crystal clear image, we have Dior to thank for it. Lawrence was announced as the face of the brand seven years ago, and she appeared at their Paris Fashion Week show today sporting the dazzling rock on her finger.

The actress attended the Fall/Winter 2019 Dior presentation alongside famous faces like Cara Delevigne and Karlie Kloss, and showed off her new accessory.

Maroney's ring is minimal in design, with a large emerald-cut diamond hanging off the platinum band. It's arguably a more modern take on a classic combo, as the stone isnit centred on the band.

Lawrence wore the ring with a tailored A-line short dress and plaid heels for the event, and the ring is speculated to cost around $200,000. It's roughly four to five carats, so Maroney didn't come to play.

Andrew Fox, President of SuperJeweler.com, gave ELLE the lowest carat estimate for the engagement ring;

"Jennifer's ring, which is surprisingly modest, appears to be a three-to-four carat emerald shape diamond," he said. "While I'm certain that it's of very fine colour and clarity, Cooke Maroney most likely paid over $200,000." WOWZA.

She was first spotted wearing it while the couple were on a date in New York City at Raoul's in early February. "It was a giant rock," as a witness quoted at the time. "They seemed like they were celebrating and people were talking about it. The ring was very noticeable.” I mean, it's huge, so it's hard not to notice.

Lawrence was previously in relationships with Nicholas Hoult, Chris Martin and Mother! director Darren Aonofsky. This is her first engagement, but Lawrence opened up about marriage to Vogue in 2015;

"I can't wait to be married. I feel like if I find that one person who I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to be the father of my children, that I would absolutely not f*ck it up."

When asked about bridesmaids by Vanity Fair in 2016, interestingly she said; "Weddings rock, but… there needs to be a bridesmaids' union. It's horrendous… If I do ever get married, I don't think I will have bridesmaids. How can I rank my friends?"

We can't WAIT for this wedding, it's sure to be a big celebrity bash with many a famous face.

To be honest, he could have just sat there and Twitter would have still lost it's damn mind. However, Chris Evans bringing chivalry back into fashion has sent fans into a frenzy.

Well, he is rather dashing, but watching him escort a powerful and deserving black woman up the stairs to her Oscar has us feelin' some kind of way…

Apparently, the internet agrees with us. Sadly, Chris Evans wasn't nominated for an award but he did present the Best Production Design award with Jennifer Lopez. 

Sporting a teal velvet blazer, he impressed viewers with his gentleman skills and all-round friendly 'just happy to be here' attitude. Nicely done, Chris.

The man knows exactly what to do when he's in the presence of a damn QUEEN, and Jamie Lee Curtis concurs. His on-screen mum made sure to comment;

"You are a gentleman!", she wrote, and he responded; "Means a lot coming from my on-screen mom!" We're living for these exchanges, we really are.

Other users were just happy he's alive and breathin'…

Seems extreme, but nevertheless the boy did good. Everyone wants to put a ring on it;

Seriously. Wedding bells are a-ringing on the world wide web. Many of us may remember the Captain America star escorting Betty White up to the Oscars stage a few years back.

We have to ask the Academy, is he strategically placed in those seats exactly for chivalrous knight in shining armour purposes? Conspiracy theory soon to be confirmed.

"I am adding Chris Evans to my roster of imaginary boyfriends. You know why." Damn right we do.

However, this one is our all time comedic favourite;

"Can you make me a formal jacket that exactly matches my eyes so that when I help Regina King up the stairs, every woman fills her pants with eggs?” – Chris Evans." We just wheezed. Amazing.

We also adore his celebration of Black Panther's win for Best Production, which he and J-Lo presented the award for. Superhero supporting fellow superheroes;

The bar is relatively low for Chris to impress fans even more, but we have to admit he's a special boy indeed.

Keep showing that gentlemanly behaviour, son. Chivalry ain't dead until he is.

Rami Malek is a treasure who must be protected at ALL COSTS.

The 37-year-old won the prestigious Best Actor gong at the 91st Academy Awards last night, his first win and nomination, so his nerves are understandable.

The adorable, immensely talented actor was kissing his co-star girlfriend Lucy Boynton the entire night, and we don't blame him. It was basically Wezz. He declared his love for her in his speech, and pretty much everyone melted.

Malek and Boynton play Freddie Mercury and Mary Austin in Bohemian Rhapsody, which was the biggest winner of the night but failed to win Best Picture, and the world has fallen in love with them.

On stage, Rami professed his love for the 25-year-old English actress before falling off afterwards and had to be treated by paramedics, which will 100 percent make a great story to tell the grandkids.

He said, "Lucy Boynton, you are the heart of this film, you are beyond immensely talented, you have captured my heart. Thank you so much." AW. He also opened up about his Egyptian heritage;

Malek is apparently moving to London to be around his love, after totally falling for her. The poor lad even fell off the stage with the shock of his award, with People reporting that Malek was moved to a private area backstage.

"Paramedics appeared to rush to the actor's aide, who was photographed seated in the front row with his Oscars statuette still in hand. Malek was then moved to a private area backstage, where he received further treatment for possible injuries."

Malek was unable to pose with Mahershala Ali, Regina King and Olivia Colman, who also won big at the Academy Awards in the Dolby theatre. He was featured in a photo with them after the ceremony however.

Bohemian Rhapsody was the biggest winner of the night, taking home the awards for Best Actor, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Film Editing.

Spike Lee, director of BlacKkKlansman, was NOT happy when Green Book took home Best Picture, which has been controversially labelled a "white saviour" movie.

Queen featuring Adam Lambert opened up the Oscars instead of an opening monologue, as the ceremony went hostless without Kevin Hart.

Congratulations kids, where's our ring though? Or 7?

When The Social Network was released back in 2010, it became one of the most talked about films of the decade.

A movie about Facebook seemed ridiculous at the time, but then major writers, producers and actors were signed on, and it essentially exploded.

David Fincher was roped in to direct the movie, and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross found fame as bona fide Oscar-winning soundtrack maestros.

AP Entertainment recently interviewed screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, who began writing the film back in 2005 and went on to win the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for his efforts.

According to Sorkin, the world is ready for a sequel considering the sheer amount of controversy the website has caused over the last nine years.

"First of all, I know a lot more about Facebook in 2005 than I do in 2018," began Sorkin when questioned about the idea of revisiting the infamous film.

"But I know enough to know that there should be a sequel," he joked.

"A lot of very interesting dramatic stuff has happened since the movie ends with settling the lawsuit of the Winklevoss twins and Eduardo Saverin."

We're pretty sure you could write a dozen films about all the Facebook drama- Mark Zuckerberg ended up testifying data protection in front of CONGRESS, for God's sake.

The scandals featuring leaked user data, interference in the US Presidential election in 2016 and Russia's cyber-hacking has plagued the CEO since 2016.

As well as hate groups being allowed to stay on the website, many are arguing that content restriction is not strict enough, or else discriminates against minority groups. 

Aaron Sorkin claims that Scott Rudin, producer of The Social Network, is vying for a follow-up film, and we're SO on board.

"I've gotten more than one email from him with an article attached saying; 'Isn't it time for a sequel?'"

Um, YAS. PLEASE. Zuckerberg needs to be dragged, all day.

Ok, some of this is old news – most of us will know that Leo was given the Best Actor Oscar that Marlon Brando won for his role in 1954’s On the Waterfront.

In 2017, Leo gave it back – but we're only finding out why now.

The story resurfaced in the New York Times about financier Jho Low, who is tangled in a criminal investigation – and the same guy  who originally gave Leo the Oscar a a pressie.

According to the Times, Low along with people like Malaysia’s ex-prime minister Najib Razak, allegedly used billions of dollars from a Malaysian government-run an investment fund.

Hmmm, sounds dodgy. 

Leo isn't the only one who has to give back – other celebs like Miranda Kerr had to give up a grand piano, and a Pablo Picasso painting.

The statement in 2017 said, ''This effort was to determine if there were any gifts or charitable donations originating from the parties named in the civil complaint, and to offer the return of any such gifts or donations with the aid and instruction of the government.''

The returned Oscar is now in a federal warehouse in Texas and we're a bit gutted for Leo tbh – he hasn't got much luck with Oscars, has he?

When Anne Hathaway finished filming Lés Miserables, it seemed like people were giving her a lot of hate, but it turns out she was dealing with much more than she was letting on.

In an interview with The Guardian, Anne explained that when she won her Oscar for Les Miserables, she was still in her character, Fantine's mindset.

"I felt very uncomfortable. I kind of lost my mind doing that movie and it hadn't come back yet. Then I had to stand up in front of people and feel something I don't feel which is uncomplicated happiness.

"It's an obvious thing, you win an Oscar and you're supposed to be happy. I didn't feel that way. I felt wrong that I was standing there in a gown that cost more than some people are going to see in their lifetime, and winning an award for portraying pain that still felt very much a part of our collective experience as human beings.

"I tried to pretend that I was happy and I got called out on it, big time. That's the truth and that's what happened. It sucks. But what you learn from it is that you only feel like you can die from embarrassment, you don't actually die."

We think she did an amazing performance as Fatine.
