    Caitlyn Jenner On Bathing Suits: 'Don't Know If I'm Ready To Expose My... - Huffington Post 3 hours ago

        On the latest episode of "I Am Cait," Caitlyn Jenner spoke candidly about whether she felt comfortable swimming in a bathing suit. During the episode that aired on Aug. 2, Jenner traveled to San Francisco and decided to skip going in a hot tub with a group of her friends. When author and friend Jennifer Finney Boylan asked if she had put on a bathing suit yet, Jenner said that she had, but had not been in the pool yet. "For me, anyway, it was incredible, when I was like in [the pool]," Boylan said.  "To be honest with you, that'll happen at some point. I'm in no rush," Jenner said. "I'm in no rush."  Jenner added, "I just don't know if I'm ready to expose myself like that. Maybe down the line I'll feel more comfortable with myself. For right now, I just can't see myself doing it."   "I Am Cait" debuted July 26 on E!. The series follows Jenner after coming out as transgender during an interview earlier this year with ABC News' Diane Sawyer. Tune in on Sunday nights at 8 p.m. to see the latest in the eight-part series.   H/T Jezebel Also on HuffPost:  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Honest Company, co-founded by the actress Jessica Alba, makes an SPF-30 sunscreen that some users say has left them and their loved ones badly burned, according to Today. ("SPF-30" refers to the sun protection factor of the sunscreen.) Many have taken to the Internet to express their displeasure. Don't buy @Honest sunscreen unless u want to look like this. Second time I've tried this stuff and got fried pic.twitter.com/pEhO5GYIkQ— Lindsy (@LindsyMarshall) July 26, 2015 @Honest this is my very real result from Honest 30 SPF sunscreen. Only spent 1 hour outside. Burnt. #nothappy #red pic.twitter.com/T42TNeg5mj— Brandon Atherton (@bdatherton) June 1, 2015 The complaints started gaining traction, Buzzfeed notes, after NBC Chicago spoke with Gretta Stabler, a woman in Naperville, Illinois. Stabler said she applied the sunscreen to her 6-year-old daughter 20 minutes before going out in the sun. "She got really burned on her arms, shoulders, legs face, pretty much everywhere," Stabler told NBC Chicago. "I was angry." NBC Chicago reports that since April, there have been more than 200 online complaints about the sunscreen, which, according to the product's description, "provides broad spectrum sun protection without using any synthetic chemicals."  Honest Company defended its product in a statement to The Huffington Post: The Honest Company is committed to providing safe and effective products, and we take all consumer feedback very seriously. Our Sunscreen Lotion was tested, by an independent 3rd party, against the protocols prescribed by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) monograph for over-the-counter sunscreen products. The results showed that our product is effective and safe for use as an 80 minute water-resistant (FDA’s highest rating), SPF 30 sunscreen lotion in accordance with FDA regulations when used as directed (Shake Well. Apply liberally and evenly 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating, immediately after towel drying and at least every 2 hours). The number of complaints received on our own website about our Sunscreen Lotion constitute less than one half of one percent of all units actually sold at honest.com. We stand behind the safety and efficacy of this product. Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, said he couldn't comment specifically on Honest Company's sunscreen. But he did tell HuffPost that just because a sunscreen gets a certain SPF rating in a lab test, that doesn't guarantee its real-life effectiveness. "There are many different absorption patterns that can allow a sunscreen to pass this test," Zeichner said. "The quality of protection may vary from product to product, even though they’re all labeled as broad-spectrum." Consider a suit of white linen and a suit of metal armor, he said. "Both of them may be labeled as broad-spectrum, and both give you protection from the sun," Zeichner said. "But the armor will give you a higher quality of protection." -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Gigi Hadid Covers W's September Issue, Gets Candid About Nudity - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        Gigi Hadid, fashion's golden girl, is now a September issue cover star.   The 20-year-old model stuns on the highly anticipated issue of W magazine. Having previously covered Teen Vogue, this arguably marks her most monumental cover spot to date.  Sporting major hair and oozing glamour, Hadid is cited by the mag as a "model of the digital age" and "spectacularly connected" thanks not only to her 4 million Instagram followers, but also to her famous family (her mother Yolanda Foster is a former model and cast member of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," and her stepfather, award-winning music producer David Foster, was once married to Caitlyn Jenner's ex-wife, Linda Thompson.) Inside the glossy, Hadid talks about going nude, social media and the success of her career thus far, which she credits, in part, to a balance of high-end and mass market work.    "My Pirelli calendar is hanging on the wall of my friend’s frat house, and he doesn’t know anything about fashion. That balance is what leads to big campaigns outside of fashion. But I never want to choose one or the other. Both commercial and high fashion are what make my job so interesting," she said.  What makes her so interesting, on the other hand, is her ability to play to both the serious and goofy parts of her industry, as demonstrated by the video accompanying the shoot. Hadid pokes fun at herself and the intense "runway training" she's had.   One thing Hadid is serious about, however, is when she feels comfortable posing nude. In fact, she says the decision to strip down for Tom Ford is what helped other high-fashion brands take her seriously. "I’ve never been scared of being naked in pictures, but I wouldn’t do naked for naked’s sake. With Tom, it was an easy decision. When you think of scent, you don’t think of clothes. ... When Tom liked me, other jobs followed," she said.  Be sure to pick up your copy of W Magazine, on newsstands Aug. 18.    Also on HuffPost Style: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Hamptons Journal: Michael Shannon Stars in 99 Homes / Chess in the Sch... - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        Last week, at a special screening at Guild Hall, Michael Shannon spoke about his work on 99 Homes, a feature directed by Ramin Bahrani about the housing crash, specifically dramatizing the horror to families as their homes are reclaimed by those from whom they were offered home loans in the housing boom. Michael Shannon plays the heavy, his square jaw set as he gives fathers, like Dennis Nash, played by Andrew Garfield, a few minutes to gather wives, kids, belongings, and get out. The results are heart wrenching, with everything they own thrown out onto the street. If the families don't have a place to go, they might end up in the lowdown motel where Nash, his son and mother (a fierce Laura Dern) end up. The drama plays like a taut thriller arousing your worst nightmares, as these events are based on the true plight of many Americans caught in the 2008 housing crash. After the screening, Ramin Bahrani, in conversation with Dan Abrams, spoke about working with his actors, providing a blue print of a script for actors to fill out. Shannon supplied some of the most inventive dialogue. At one point, as Rick Carver, he lectures Nash, who only wants to return to his family home, on not being sentimental about houses: what's a home? Just boxes. He breaks it down, and you glimpse the extraordinary way that Shannon's performance humanizes this villain, makes him part of the victim cycle; you see how a man can be ruthless about profiting on the misfortune of others. As Ramin Bahrani made clear, the system is the enemy. Many were on hand for this powerful film: Gina Gershon, Robert Wilson, Jon Robin Baitz, Joan Juliet Buck, Ken Olin and Patricia Wettig, but one person who was expected was not there: Ingrid Sischy, who died last week. Peggy Siegal dedicated the evening to her. On Tuesday, a special chess tournament, the first in the Hamptons, at Jack Lenor Larson's LongHouse Reserve, gave an opportunity to the best young players on the east end to compete, said Marley Kaplan, President and CEO of Chess in The Schools. Fifty students, grades K-12, were present for these matches, from New York City and Long Island. The tournament gave the children a chance to learn new facets and strategies of the game, and helped young people develop skills in critical thinking and problem solving, as they played in the matches. The tournament also gave attendees an opportunity to interact with Yoko Ono's 1999 work of art, Play it By Trust. The artwork is intended to emphasize focus, camaraderie, and strategic planning, three of the most important aspects of chess. Chess is a great learning tool, and an exciting game that brings together people of different ages and cultures.

    We Have to Make Things Easier - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        Caitlyn Jenner and friends visit HRC. From HRC: Alison Gill, Jay Brown, Laya Monarez, Angelica Ross, Blossom C. Brown; Caitlyn's friends: Jenny Boylan, Chandi Moore, Jen Richards, Candis Cayne This article is part of an on-going original series written by Caitlyn Jenner for WhoSay called "The Real Me," which explores issues and people in the LGBT community. Hi, friends. I hope your week is off to a great start. As always, thank you for your unending love and support. Every day, I'm humbled by the thousands of you who reach out to tell me your story, ask questions, or provide encouragement. Even though I can't respond to each of you individually, I want you to know that I appreciate your kind gestures more than I could ever express. To those of you who have asked me for my opinion or expertise, I want to remind you that while I've known that I was trans since I was a small child, learning about the trans community is still very new to me and I don't have all the answers. That said, the one constant I've noticed is how incredibly difficult it is for transgender folks to transition and become their authentic selves and still be healthy and secure -- emotionally, physically, financially...the list goes on and on. We have to make things easier for the transgender community, and my friends over at the Human Rights Campaign are fighting to do just that. For those of you who aren't familiar already, HRC is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. The HRC is an incredible resource to the LGBT community and its allies. In fact, I asked some of the talented experts at HRC to help answer some of the questions you have sent me. I hope these insights from Alison Gil, Ellen Kahn, and Beck Bailey shed more light on the transgender community and make things easier for all of my friends out there. Stay strong! - Caitlyn -------- Anna: I think my four-year-old son may be transgender and I have no one to talk to about it. His father is in complete denial and won't speak on the subject. Nobody believes me and just laughs. Do you have any advice? Trust your instincts, Anna, but also reach out to folks who are equipped to guide and support you. There are medical professionals who specialize in helping transgender children. If your child is transgender, obtaining a diagnosis from a medical professional may encourage others to understand what they are going through, and also help you get the support that you need. HRC has a resource that can point you to clinical-care programs for transgender and gender expansive children. You can find it here. -- Alison Gill, Senior Legislative Counsel at the Human Rights Campaign Carrie: I am a trans ally, with quite a few friends who are trans. My question is, how can us allies be....well...better allies? What sorts of things can we do in order to help our trans family and friends have a more positive experience and avoid some of the common issues faced in the community? Carrie -- thank you for being supportive! Strong trans allies talk openly about transgender issues and make a point of learning about transgender people and the issues they face in society. They are also vigilant about using appropriate names and pronouns for transgender people, and asking others to do so as well. Trans allies speak up when others make fun of transgender people, and they speak out in support of legislation and policy changes that help make transgender people safer and protect them from discrimination. HRC has a great resource on being a supportive ally to LGBT people -- read it here. -- Alison Gill, Senior Legislative Counsel at the Human Rights Campaign Tandi: My friend is a M to F transgender and was just denied medical coverage through her insurance here in Oregon. Do you have any suggestions or resources she can look into? What can she/I do? Hi, Tandi - Insurance providers that sell policies to businesses in Oregon are not allowed to offer plans that exclude transgender people. Your friend should appeal the insurance decision. Suggest that she enlist the help of her medical provider to navigate the system. She may also want to reach out to the Oregon Insurance Division to make a complaint, or seek help from an attorney to pursue a claim. -- Alison Gill, Senior Legislative Counsel at the Human Rights Campaign April: What would your recommendation be for people who want to transition but have no reasonable expectation of ever being able to fund it? Stay positive -- coverage for transition-related services for transgender people continues to expand across the country. More states are requiring that insurance providers offer transgender health care, and more businesses offer trans-inclusive benefits. This coverage will only increase as medical providers, insurance companies, and businesses continue to recognize that transition-related care is medically necessary for transgender people. Check out HRC's Corporate Equality Index to see which corporations offer inclusive benefits, and the Municipal Equality Index and State Equality Index, to see which cities and states have inclusive coverage for their employees. Good luck, April! -- Alison Gill, Senior Legislative Counsel at the Human Rights Campaign Cris: What is the best way to explain being transgender to children, particularly when it is someone who they know personally? Hi, Cris - I'd recommend that you keep it simple. If a child's friend is transgender and will be transitioning socially, say from Sam to Sarah, you can explain that Sam has always felt female. You can tell your child that Sam has known he's a girl, even though he was born in a boy body. And that Sam has been very unhappy as a boy, and now, as Sarah, she is able to be who she really is and she is so much happier, and that we are all very happy for her. -- Ellen Kahn, head of HRC Foundation's Children, Youth and Families Program Stephanie: I recently found my sister's tumblr account and it says how she is transgender. I don't know if I should tell my sister I know. How should I approach her? It would be best not to confront her about her tumblr. Instead, make clear to her in everyday conversations that you are an ally to transgender people. Let her know that you are there if she ever wants to talk about anything, and that you love and support her. Referencing "I Am Cait," or "I Am Jazz" may be a good way to start a conversation about transgender issues. Thank you for being a caring sister, Stephanie. -- Alison Gill, Senior Legislative Counsel at the Human Rights Campaign Livvie: I'm trans and I don't know how to come out. Help! Hi Livvie! We know this can be an exciting time when a person can feel proud, strong, uncertain and nervous all at the same time. Remember that everybody's circumstances are different and there's no one right way to 'come out,' just as there is no one 'right way' to be trans. First, work on finding community with other transgender folks -- the Internet can be a place to start, or a local LGBTQ organization that has resources for transgender people. If you live in a rural area, you may want to connect virtually. When you start telling people, first consider speaking confidentially to the most trusted people in your life. Let them know that you are telling them because you trust them and value their friendship and support. A lot of folks don't know very much about transgender people, so you might need to answer some questions for them about what it means to be trans. While there are benefits to coming out to people, there can also be serious risks and consequences. The decision is yours and yours alone. But we encourage you to weigh both risks and rewards before making a choice to tell others. HRC has a great guide for thinking through your coming out process. Check it out: Trans Visibility Guide. -- Beck Bailey, Deputy Director of Employee Engagement at the Human Rights Campaign Foundation For more information on the transgender movement, see a list of resources at CaitlynJenner.com. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Boyhood Is a Sitcom, Compressed - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        A few weeks ago at Comic-Con, a Simpsons showrunner revealed that the long-running cartoon would devote a Christmas episode to spoofing Richard Linklater's much-gushed-over Boyhood. The Simpsons is know for its spoofs and skewers, and considering the splash that Boyhood made upon its release in 2014-- it was nominated for six Academy Awards, won the Golden Globe for Best Feature, landed on the American Film Institute's top ten list, won Best Picture at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards, was named Best Film by the New York Film Critics Circle, and has been nominated and awarded the best film of 2014 by almost every film critics' society you can think of--a Simpsons homage was inevitable. But plunking a version of Boyhood on a half-hour comedy is particularly fitting, because the acclaimed film shares a surprising amount of DNA with that little-engine-that-could: the sitcom. Boyhood is essentially a family sitcom compressed into two and a half hours. An unwanted haircut at age eight stands in for the feelings of powerlessness and humiliation that accompany life at that age. A night spent wandering around Austin, Texas with a high-school girlfriend, ordering one more bowl of queso at a greasy spoon, replaces the sex talk. A brief shot of Patricia Arquette lying facedown on the garage floor, sobbing, with her new husband standing off to the side, tells you everything you need to know about the abusive relationship. It isn't too hard to re-imagine each of these incidents--with vastly different dialogue, editing, and lighting, of course--as a sitcom episode. The magic of Boyhood is the compression of twelve years into two and a half hours. The film is like a good tomato sauce that's been simmering for so long that it's been reduced to its delicious, tomato-y essence. So much of what has attracted critics to Boyhood is its treatment of time as something that just happens to you while you go through the motions, shaping you into the person you're about to become even as you're too distracted to notice. It speaks to something about life that feels real and universal: where has the time gone? But the very thing that makes Boyhood such a critical marvel is the same thing that we take for granted week after week on TV. Following a sitcom loyally over the years, you don't really notice the changes until you go back and look at that first season, and realize that Leslie Knope's hair was so much more yellow back then, and when did Jake on Two and a Half Men become a whole man? The opening credits to Roseanne's eighth season--it would last one more before going off the air--illustrates this gradual evolution as it shows the cast members morphing from their youngest selves to the present day. The experience of watching a group of people grow and change over a long period of time is essentially the experience of loyally following a sitcom over several years. If someone were to compress a twelve-season long TV show into two and a half hours, the results might be just as moving and surprising as Boyhood. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Sony unveils selfie-friendly Xperia M5 and waterproof C5 Ultra - PC World 1 hour ago

        Sony is back again with two more smartphones, and they each have their own claim to fame.The Xperia M5 is for those want a device that will catch the eye of others, as it has a mostly-glass build and gold color option. The phone has a 13-megapixel front-facing camera to go with the 21.5-megapixel option on the back. It includes a 5-inch 1080p display, 2.0 GHz MediaTek Octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and a claim of two days worth of battery life from the 2600 mAh battery. The front and back are built with what Sony calls “sleek, premium glass.” The Xperia C5 Ultra is for those who want their phone to withstand a drop in the water. That’s a good thing because it's huge: with its six-inch display, there’s a decent change it may slip out of your hand. While the Xperia C5 has the same 13 megapixel front camera as the M5, it adds a front-facing flash. Its rear camera is also 13MP, rather than 21.5, and the other specs are more modest, too. The phone has a more modest 1.7GHz MediaTek processor, though it includes a one-handed mode given its substantial size. The phone is offered in three colors: white, black, and a sort of teal green.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
