'Flash' Star Candice Patton Dishes On Iris West's Fearlessness

'Flash' Star Candice Patton Dishes On Iris West's Fearlessness

Iris West’s fearlessness is just one of the things we love about her on The Flash.

Candice Patton, who plays the character on TV opened up to NKD mag‘s August issue about playing the iconic character.

“I was thrilled to be going in for a lead female role that isn’t traditionally played by an African-American,” Candice shared, remembering her original audition. “And deep down, I always wanted to be a part of some superhero show or film.”

“Iris is visibly fearless, even when she’s vulnerable,” she adds. “Strong women are capable of experiencing fear, but then choose to find the strength to move forward. That’ s what Iris does.”

On top of all those qualities, Iris is also incredibly loyal, which Candice says is probably the best part of her.

“She’ s loyal to Barry, to Wally, to her dad, and Team Flash,” Candice continues. “She doesn’t have powers but that doesn’t get in the way of her trying to contribute. I think she’s a character that both men and women can admire.”

The Flash returns this fall on The CW.

Billie Lourd Talks About Living Life After the Deaths of Her Mom & Grandma

Billie Lourd Talks About Living Life After the Deaths of Her Mom & Grandma

Billie Lourd takes the cover of Town & Country magazine’s September 2017 issue and she’s looking fabulous!

The 25-year-old actress spoke extensively about her mother Carrie Fisher and grandmother Debbie Reynolds. Here’s what she had to share…

On coping with the deaths of her mother and grandmother,: “If life’s not funny, then it’s just true – and that would be unacceptable. Even when she [Carrie Fischer] died, that was what got me through that whole thing. When Debbie died the next day, I could just picture her saying, ‘Well, she’s upstaging me once again, of course – she had to.’”

On living life after her tremendous losses: “I’ve always kind of lived in their shadows, and now is the first time in my life when I get to own my life and stand on my own. I love being my mother’s daughter, and it’s something I always will be, but now I get to be just Billie. It’s a lot of pressure, because she [Carrie] had such an incredible legacy, and now I have to uphold that and make it evolve in my own way.”

On growing up while her mother battled drug addiction: “A lot of people have had experiences like mine, too. Tons of people grow up with mentally ill parents who have drug problems… It’s such a common thing, and people really don’t talk about it.

On her decision to become an actress: “My mom [Carrie Fischer] pointed me toward it. The first thing I did was Star Wars: The Force Awakens. [On set] my mother would pull me aside and be like, ‘It’s weird that you’re so comfortable here. This is the most uncomfortable environment in the world. If you’re comfortable here, you should do this.”

Selena Gomez Was Watching a Scary Movie When She Came Up With 'Fetish' Music Video Idea

Selena Gomez Was Watching a Scary Movie When She Came Up With 'Fetish' Music Video Idea

Selena Gomez is opening up about how her love of all things horror inspired her “Fetish” music video!

In fact, the singer and her creative collaborator, her BFF Petra Collins, came up with the idea while they were watching Chucky together.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Selena Gomez

“Do you think people would be shocked to know that ‘Fetish’ came out of our discovery that we are both avid horror fans, which I didn’t know about you?” Petra asked Selena in their recent interview with Dazed magazine.

“Until you came over in the middle of the day and found me in my living room sitting on a big teddy bear watching Chucky so casually and then you came and laid with me,” Selena answered.

“At that point, it was clear we are on the same wavelength,” Petra added. “It’s still so crazy to me how, when I first heard ‘Fetish’, I pictured it to the backdrop of horror. It’s one of my favourite genres to make a female look strong. … I love the video because it shows the very dirty, gross and weird love you can have towards someone. … I don’t view the video as dark. You can see this angry, sad, whatever person, but also be in control of it. Oh my God, do you remember the eggs and tomatoes on your face? Was that fun for you?”

“The kitchen scene was so liberating, to lose control of my body and lose sight of myself,” Selena shared. “I felt great and I felt like tomatoes, eggs and dirt and it was amazing, but seriously? I love that. It felt so good. I remember being a little nervous, and when s–t hit the wall – I just lost it and left myself in that scene. It was so cool. You were behind the camera, screaming.”

Watch the music video, featuring Gucci Mane, if you missed it.

Lennon & Maisy Stella Didn't Have Internet or Television Growing Up!

Lennon & Maisy Stella Didn't Have Internet or Television Growing Up!

Lennon and Maisy Stella look so ready for summer on the cover of Parade magazine, available now.

The sisters opened up about their show Nashville, fans and growing up with no Internet. Check it:

Lennon on growing up with the show: “It has been a big part of our lives. It really is a cool thing to be around the same people for so long. We have moved around so many times, our family is just a bunch of gypsies. The longest we’d ever lived in a house was a year. So it has been cool having this consistency.”

Maisy on their evolving plot lines: “It’s crazy because we’ve gone from going in the kitchen and getting a bowl of cereal and going to school to having super-intense, really detailed story lines. It’s fun to test yourself and challenge yourself with that.”

Lennon on their younger years in Canada: “We grew up on a farm with no internet, no TV, no phone. The most peaceful time of my life was our Sundays in Canada just making music and being outside.”

Lennon on Nashville fans: “It’s so crazy having people watch us grow up and love or hate our characters. And when the show got canceled [on ABC], it was an overflowing amount of love from people. We had no idea that there was that much love for it.”

Cole Sprouse Didn't Expect Fans To Really Want To Be On His Camera Duels Instagram Account

Cole Sprouse Didn't Expect Fans To Really Want To Be On His Camera Duels Instagram Account

Cole Sprouse‘s other Instagram account, Camera Duels, has become somewhat of a bucket list item for many fans.

The Riverdale star started it, aiming to catch people trying to take pics of him in public without being noticed.

“It started because I was pissed off,” he told Wonderland mag. “I try to approach a lot of the strange trappings of celebrity and the culture with comedy…the actions and feelings and vibes that people put off when they’re about to do something like that is so obvious and comical that it begs a duel.”

But his mission in shaming those who try, was turned into something that they actually wanted — they wanted to be on that account. It’s their claim to fame, so to speak.

“That was an oversight on my behalf,” Cole adds. “I should have seen that coming!”

Landry Bender Talks About Her Next Role on 'Fuller House'

We are so glad that Landry Bender has a brand new role because we are seriously missing her on our TVs!

The former Best Friends Whenever star dished to Prune mag that she’ll be in the upcoming season of Netflix’s Fuller House.

“That has been really fun, and the cast is amazing, they’ve been very welcoming,” she shared in her interview. “It’s the kind of show where it had such a legacy behind it, so I was intimidated at first.”

Landry will be playing Rocki, who’s rumored to be the daughter of Gia, the once upon a time rival turned BFF of Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin). But — it’s just a rumor — for now.

Although born in 2000, Landry is still an avid watcher of the original series.

“All the references and all of the jokes, I got them immediately,” she shared. “It’s a really great show and very much a family show. Walking onto set, they’re like a family in real life too.”

Aladdin's Naomi Scott Defines Inequality in New PETRIe Magazine Feature

Aladdin's Naomi Scott Defines Inequality in New PETRIe Magazine Feature

Naomi Scott is glamming up on the cover of PETRIe 68, where she is rocking Chanel looks!

You may not know, but Naomi was just announced as Jasmine in Disney’s upcoming live action Aladdin movie.

While the full cover story will not be released until September, you can check out the sneak peek below.

During the interview, Zadrian Smith, the founder & Editor-in-Chief of the mag, asked Naomi, “In your own words, define inequality?”

“There are certain aspects of inequality that I have faced and will face; there are also aspects of inequality that I am entirely unaware of and, without more life experience, will not encounter. For example, just being a woman can trigger strange instances of inequality, in moments when it shouldn’t and I don’t expect it, and I am sometimes left stunned by it,” Naomi explained. :Very often it might be small things, something subtle, microaggressions that I become aware of. One universal form inequality takes is in how people are made to feel or be valued as less than someone else.”
