Look at No 2, Kristen Stewart – star of the Twilight franchise – who has long been a regular of “Most Hated” lists: described as “sulky”, “saturnine”, “ungrateful”, because, at the age of 23, she doesn’t dance down every red carpet like all the other dancing-horse sparkle-ponies, screaming, “I LOVE having my picture taken with strangers! Please – ask me a million questions about my private life!”
And of course, that makes celebrity-dependent magazines like Star hate her – but not on my behalf. As a human being, I’m delighted that one of my daughters’ generation’s biggest stars simply wants to do her job – i.e, act – rather than spend her whole life waving and smiling like a lobotomised competition winner.
Whenever I see a woman whom absolutely no one can force to smile, I see a woman who’s powerful enough to ignore the rules. All the women on this list are simply powerful enough to ignore the rules. I put them on my “Most Rated” list. Yeah, Star. In your face.
…let’s face it, next time you lose your remote control, it’s going to be easier to have another one delivered by a robot through a conveniently open front-room window than it is to effortfully take all the sofa cushions off, and see if it’s fallen down there.

Out of seven billion possible conversations, the one you started in 1995 and haven’t finished yet is the best one I’ve ever had.
Caitlin Moran, 30th November 2013, “To my husband: 14 things I love about you.” (via poopingoutwords)
Love isn’t about drama and tears and burning. It is, instead, the construction of a tiny bubble-world – like a snowglobe. One in which you stand, in view of everyone, on the mantelpiece. Sometimes it is calm inside the snowglobe. Sometimes everything turns upside down, and it fills with a panic of snowflakes. But you were made as the two tiny figures in the snowglobe, hands joined, and you do not make sense anywhere else.
