Amber Tamblyn Teams Up With 'My Sister' For T-Shirt Collection!

Amber Tamblyn just launched her own line of empowering tees and recruited her famous friends to star in the campaign!

The 34-year-old actress collaborated with My Sister for the #ChoirUp collection, which will give a portion of its proceeds to help survivors of sex trafficking.

The campaign stars Amy Poehler, America Ferrera and Kristen Schaal, all wearing Amber‘s super cute tees and hoodies.

“Collaborating on this collection with MySister.org has been such a joy and inspiration. We live in an era where words have extreme power and lead directly to actions, often times violent or harmful actions against the bodies that identify themselves as women. A shirt collection can’t stop that from happening but it can empower those that it has happened to,” Amber said in a statement.

Amber‘s collection can be found at MySister.org.

America Ferrera Reveals She was Assaulted as Young Girl

America Ferrera is coming forward about being sexually assaulted as a young girl.

The 33-year-old Superstore star has taken to her Instagram as part of the #MeToo movement, in which women share their stories of sexual harassment or assault, to reveal a heartbreaking story of her being attacked by an older man she knew.

“First time I can remember being sexually assaulted I was 9-years-old,” America wrote in the post. “I told no one and lived with the shame and guilt thinking all along that I, a 9-year-old child, was somehow responsible for the actions of a grown man.”

“I had to see this man on a daily basis for years to come,” America continued. “He would smile at me and wave, and I would hurry past him, my blood running cold, my guts carrying the burden of what only he & I knew — that he expected me to shut my mouth and smile back. Ladies, let’s break the silence to the next generation of girls won’t have to live with this bull–.”

America Ferrera & Her Husband Have a Secret Code for 'Calm Down'

When America Ferrera and her husband Ryan Piers Williams need to tell the other to “calm down,” they have a secret code they use thanks to the movie Steel Magnolias!

The 33-year-old actress opened up about the secret code during an appearance on Harry Connick Jr.‘s talk show, airing on Wednesday (October 4).

“I mean who doesn’t love Sally Field‘s breakdown in the cemetery, I feel like watching that is when I decided I was going to become an actress, to get one of those cathartic moments,” America said about her favorite part of the movie. “The line that always stays with me and has become a secret way of communicating between my husband and I is, ‘Drink your juice Shelby.’ We basically say that line to tell each other to calm down. Simmer down now.”
