Quote of the Day

“When I was little, … I was told that I was different. And I felt out of place — too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in. And, then one day I realised something, something that I hope you all realise: Different is good.”

Actress Angelina Jolie at Nickelodeon's 28th Annual Kids' Choice Awards to accept the favourite villain award for her role as 'Maleficent'.

Say What?

“See I do smile … even laugh on occasion. Not too often though because it causes wrinkles.” 

 

Reality star Kim Kardashian West wrote next to an Instagram picture with her friend, Shamari Maurice, both laughing, to explain why she is seldom pictured smiling.
