How hard is it to be a female human being in the media? Anne Hathaway is a pretty good measure. She learned everything she could about sex trafficking and prostitution to play Fantine, and knew only too well that modern-day Fantines were probably living within blocks of the Academy Awards. As she said in her acceptance speech, ‘Here’s hoping that someday in the not too distant future the misfortunes of Fantine will only be found in stories and never in real life.’
Did that get coverage? No. Instead, the huge and expensive media beast speculated on her nipples. In a way, that makes Anne’s point. No wonder there are still Fantines, so many in the media think like pimps, traffickers and johns.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned on here how much I love Leo Messi. Wish Time would put him on the US cover
Joachim Ladefoged had eight minutes to photograph one of the world’s greatest soccer players, Lionel Messi. “Just enough time to use three different backgrounds,” Ladfoged said.
A huge Messi fan himself, Ladefoged did something he’s never done before after the shoot.“I have to admit that for the first time in my 20-year career as a photographer, I asked for an autograph,” he said. “I have two sons at home and bought a Messi Barcelona shirt, so coming home without a signed shirt from their biggest hero was out of the question.”
