Sara Sampaio Slams Paparazzi for Taking Photos of Her Topless

Sara Sampaio has written an open letter to the paparazzi and press after photos of her sunbathing topless were published online.

“How would you feel if you woke up one morning to find pictures of your 25yr old daughter topless all over the internet? Your daughter had done nothing wrong, she was sunbathing, she was not in a public place, she was privately minding her own business,” the 25-year-old model wrote on her Facebook page.

“A few days ago I was on holiday in the South of France. I had no idea that there was someone far away with a big telescopic lense taking pictures of me,” Sara said. “Some of you may say that I’m a public figure and it comes with my job. Others that I’m used to being photographed in swimsuits. There is a difference though. Its my job, yes I get paid for taking pictures, but I give my consent to take them. I have my professional life and I have my private life. We all go to work, some to an office, some to a studio, but when we come home people should respect our privacy.”

“What kind of society do we live in where people are paid money to spy on others, take pictures and invade their privacy,” she continued. “As a young woman I feel violated. Not only do I wake up to see pictures of myself all over the internet but then I also have to suffer abuse from people body shaming me. I’m proud of my figure. I know I’m not perfect, far from it, but it’s who I am and I work hard to stay in shape. Why are people so quick to objectify women, to comment that this part of their body is too small, or that that part is too big.”

“To the person that sold my picture to the press, I really hope that one day you don’t wake up with your daughter’s naked picture all over the internet. To the press, please stop funding people to take these pictures and to the people that hate and body shame, let’s show more compassion and love,” Sara concluded.

Zachary Quinto Joins Rami Malek for a 'Mr. Robot' Panel

Zachary Quinto poses for a photo with Rami Malek while attending a Mr. Robot conversation held at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation on Thursday (August 25) in Los Angeles.

The guys were likely chatting about Rami‘s Emmy-nominated turn in the hit USA show, which is also up for Best Drama Series this year.

Zachary could probably use some pointers from Rami as he is set to star in a show about hackers as well!

It was announced in July that Zachary will star in an hour-long drama series based on the book, “Biopunk: DIY Scientists Hack the Software of Life.”

Chris Evans' Steve Rogers Might Not Be Captain America in 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Chris Evans' Steve Rogers Might Not Be Captain America in 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Chris Evans is set to appear in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movies, but it’s possible that he won’t be playing Captain America as we know him.

The character put down his shield at the end of Captain America: Civil War and directors Joe and Anthony Russo confirm that he is going to be a different kind of Cap.

“I think him dropping that shield is him letting go of that identity,” Joe told Huffington Post. “[It’s] him admitting that certainly the identity of Captain America was in conflict with the very personal choice that he was making.”

In the comic books, Steve Rogers takes on the name of The Nomad when he loses faith in the government, so it’s possible that this happens in the movies!

Tony Romo Breaks Bone in His Back, Won't Play Until Mid-Season

Tony Romo will be sitting out of the current football season until further notice after breaking a bone in his back.

The 36-year-old Dallas Cowboys quarterback could miss six to ten weeks after suffering a compression fracture during a pre-season game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday (August 25).

Tony said he was fine after being hit by Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril, but he was taken out of the game and an MRI revealed the damage.

“We’re confident that he’s going to be coming back and playing football for us this year,” coach Jason Garrett said (via USA Today).

Nate Parker Says He Wasn't Empathetic in Previous Comments About His Rape Accuser

Nate Parker Says He Wasn't Empathetic in Previous Comments About His Rape Accuser

Nate Parker has given an in-depth interview about being put on trial for rape accusations and how his previous comments about the case and his accuser were not empathetic.

The 36-year-old The Birth of a Nation star and director was accused of rape back in 1999 and he was acquitted of the charges. The case resurfaced recently and he released a statement about it, but then a few days later it was revealed that his accuser had committed suicide several years ago.

“This is hard; I’ve been trying to figure out how to say this. Not everyone has the best intentions. I thought I was giving the interview, at the time of those two interviews — and one really just bit off the other — I didn’t know the status of the women,” Nate told Ebony. “I didn’t know. I was acting as if I was the victim, and that’s wrong. I was acting as if I was the victim because I felt like, my only thought was I’m innocent and everyone needs to know. I didn’t even think for a second about her, not even for a second.”

“You asked me why I wasn’t empathetic? Why didn’t it come off more empathetic? Because I wasn’t being empathetic. Why didn’t it come off more contrite? Because I wasn’t being contrite. Maybe I was being even arrogant. And learning about her passing shook me, it really did. It really shook me,” he added.

Throughout the lengthy interview, Nate talks about his views on being called a rapist, his idea of consent, and more. At one point he was asked if he has thought about his accuser and the incident at all over the last 17 years. “No, I had not. I hadn’t thought about it at all,” he replied.

Justin Theroux Figured Out Emily Blunt Was Pregnant Before She Announced It

Justin Theroux Figured Out Emily Blunt Was Pregnant Before She Announced It

Emily Blunt looks chic while headed out and about on Thursday afternoon (August 25) in New York City.

The 33-year-old actress gave birth to her second child Violet earlier this year but still was still pregnant while filming her latest movie The Girl on the Train.

Emily wasn’t ready to make her pregnancy announcement during filming but her co-star Justin Theroux figured it out anyway!

Justin explained that he knew something was up when Emily didn’t want to film a scene where she had to lay on the ground, sit up and then quickly bolt of the room, claiming she might twist her hip.

When the director left the room, Justin asked Emily if she was was pregnant because he knew the stunt would not normally have been a problem for her.

“I was like, ‘Oh my god, you said you couldn’t be in a sitting position and then start to run! You’re not 80 years old and you don’t have arthritis. So you’re either pregnant, or you’ve gotten really lazy,’” he joked.
