The Badass Move Princess Diana Pulled After Finding Out About Charles’s Affair

Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s 11-year marriage was fraught with scandals, affairs, and, well, the fact that they weren’t really all that in love to begin with. But after the birth of Prince Harry in 1984, Diana experienced what she called «some of the happiest years of her life» as a wife and mother — sadly, it didn’t last too long. In 1986, Prince Charles rekindled his pre-Diana romance with Camilla Parker Bowles, a relationship that first started back in the early ’70s. According to interviews and conversations with friends, Diana never believed that Charles and Camilla had fully broken things off; she even alleged to have found photos of Camilla in Charles’s journal during their honeymoon and made the famous statement of there being «three of us» in the marriage, telling Martin Bashir in 1995, «It was a bit crowded.»

In Andrew Morton’s controversial biography Diana: Her True Story, first published in 1992, Diana recalled «one of the bravest moments» of her marriage — a calculated confrontation with Camilla herself at a 40th birthday party for Camilla’s sister, of all places. The year was 1989, and Diana decided that, after putting the pieces together and realizing that Charles and Camilla were carrying on an affair, she would turn up at the event unannounced and talk to Camilla face to face, once and for all.

Nobody knew Diana was going to show up — she wasn’t even invited — and in a truly badass move, the princess interrupted a conversation between Camilla, Charles, and another male guest to speak to Camilla. She looked «really uncomfortable and put her head down,» and Diana continued: «OK, boys, I’m just going to have a quick word with Camilla and I’ll be up in a minute.» The two men «shot upstairs like chickens with no heads,» Diana said, adding, «I could feel, upstairs, all hell breaking loose — ‘What is she going to do?'»

What Diana did was exactly what she planned to do. Though she admitted to being «terrified» of Camilla, Diana recalled staying «deathly calm.» «The voice inside me had said, ‘just go for it,'» she said in a taped conversation. «I said, ‘I know what’s going on between you and Charles and I just want you to know that.'» The princess called Camilla’s reply «very interesting»: «She said to me, ‘You’ve got everything you ever wanted. You’ve got all the men in the world fall in love with you and you’ve got two beautiful children, what more do you want?'» «So I said, ‘I want my husband,'» Diana said. «I said to Camilla, ‘I’m sorry I’m in the way . . . and it must be hell for both of you. But I do know what’s going on. Don’t treat me like an idiot.'»

The aftermath from Diana and Camilla’s standoff was swift. Diana said that after the party, Prince Charles «was over me like a bad rash, and I cried like I have never cried before,» and that in the days after the confrontation there was a «tremendous shift» in their relationship. In frustration, Diana began her own string of extramarital affairs until she and Charles eventually separated, then divorced at the behest of Queen Elizabeth II. The couple managed to stay civil while co-parenting their sons until Diana’s tragic death in August 1997. Prince Charles and Camilla were married in 2005.

Charlie Hunnam, Forever Badass, Gets Candid About Being Picked On as a Kid

Charlie Hunnam may be known for playing badass characters (cough, Jax Teller, King Arthur, cough), but back in the day, he was actually picked on as a child. In a recent interview with The Red Bulletin, the actor opened up about getting into his leading role in King Arthur and the traumas he suffered as a child. «I got into a lot of fights, losing some and getting severely beaten a few times,» he said. «When that happens to you, you just feel like, ‘I’m going to do everything in my power to never be in a situation like this again.’ Hence you go out and learn how to fight.» He explained that he still does martial arts, but he realized at one point that he started to carry that tough attitude into every room. «You realize you’ve become a slave to the thing you’re afraid of,» he said. «In a lot of ways, I started channeling my father.»

Charlie’s father was a «formidable guy,» he said, adding, «What I did was play a lot of really hard characters. I felt that I exorcised those fears by being a macho dude on screen.» Later, that feeling bled into his real life. «It’s not that I was a bully, but I identified with having the respect of the men in any circle I was a part of,» he said. «Now I realize that’s just a bunch of nonsense, because I know who I really am.»

He’s certainly shown his softer side lately, recently charming fans everywhere while talking about his heartbreak at 13 years old and the time he rescued his cat. Yep: super hot and super sweet.

6 Milestones From Amal Clooney’s Career That Prove She’s a Legal Badass

While walking inside the UN to deliver a passionate address persuading member states to take appropriate legal action to stop ISIS, Amal Clooney was photographed by the paparazzi. It didn’t take long before the photos popped up online, but instead of seeing headlines accompanying the photos in praise of her speech, the attention was aimed primarily at her baby bump. Like Tina Fey did at the Golden Globes in 2015, many came to Amal’s defense by citing her extensive list of impressive accomplishments as a way of saying, hey, there’s a lot more to her than simply a pregnant stomach.

Since 2010, the 39-year-old barrister has worked for Britain’s Doughty Street Chambers, where she’s specialized in international criminal law, public international law, and human rights. Before that, she spent time as a defense attorney for one of the world’s most well-respected law firms, Sullivan & Cromwell, in New York. We could go on and on about all of the incredible things Amal has done throughout her career, but in the interest of time, here’s her highlight reel:

  1. Amal Clooney, Human Rights Warrior: Former Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko found herself embroiled in a terrifying political scandal in 2010 when she was arrested and accused of a number of crimes. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the EU, EU member states, the United States, Russia, and Canada all voiced their concern that the accusations against Yulia were politically motivated. She proceeded to be illegally detained in the Ukraine for a number of years, which included hunger strikes and left her briefly wheelchair-bound with severe back problems. Amal and the rest of Yulia’s legal team claimed that the «Judicial system and justice are totally non-existent in Ukraine today,» and succeeded in obtaining Yulia’s release on Feb. 22, 2014.
  2. Amal Clooney, Protector of Journalists Everywhere: In 2013 Mohamed Fadel Fahmy, an Egyptian-born Canadian award-winning journalist serving as Al Jazeera English’s International Bureau Chief in Egypt, was arrested by Egyptian authorities along with two of his colleagues for broadcasting «false news.» He was found guilty and sentenced to seven years at a maximum security prison in Cairo after an unfair trial, which began the long, drawn-out legal battle to win back his freedom. Despite a journey that included a controversial sentencing from a retrial judge, Amal worked tirelessly representing Mohamed until his eventual release and pardon in September 2015.
  3. Amal Clooney, Advocate For Victims of Sexual Violence: Amal spent a few months working closely with British Foreign Secretary William Hague in an effort to spotlight the sexual violence that occurs in war-torn countries. While attending a meeting with UNICEF UK campaigners in May 2014, she spoke eloquently about the necessity for intervention. «Under international law, the widespread or systematic rape of children in conflict zones can amount to a crime against humanity,» she said. «Those who carry out these horrific acts must be held accountable . . . We need to ensure there are systems in place that will enable child survivors to come forward and access the justice they deserve.»
  4. Amal Clooney, Crusader Against ISIS: Amal is using her newfound fame to hold the Islamic State accountable for the sexual enslavement and trafficking of thousands of girls and women they’ve perpetrated. She’s specifically representing human-trafficking survivor Nadia Murad, and told BBC News at Six‘s Fiona Bruce that her celebrity status is actually helping. «There’s a lot of my work that takes place behind closed doors that is not ever seen,» she said. «I think if there are more people who now understand what’s happening about the Yazidis and ISIS, and if there can be some action that results from that, that can help those clients, then I think it’s a really good thing to give that case the extra publicity that it may get.»
  5. Amal Clooney, Trusted Adviser to Kofi Annan: Before the horrific war raging in Syria escalated to what it is now, UN envoy Kofi Annan held a conference in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss the fighting in Damascus. The former UN Secretary General hand-picked Amal for his team.
  6. Amal Clooney, Noted Philanthropist: George and Amal started the Clooney Foundation for Justice in late 2016 as a way to fight «for the rights of individuals unfairly targeted by oppressive governments through the courts.» Through their efforts, the Clooneys hope to not only find justice for victims of war, but also provide educational opportunities for vulnerable children and refugees trying to rebuild their lives. Amal herself is a refugee — she and her family fled Lebanon in the late 1970s to escape a brutal civil war — so the organization no doubt hits close to home.

Meet Michele Selene Ang, the Badass Actress Behind 13 Reasons Why’s Courtney

One of the amazing things about 13 Reasons Why (of which there are many) is the fact that Netflix was open to casting a group of virtually unknown actors. One of them is Michele Selene Ang, whom fans of the show will know better as the uptight, strait-laced Courtney Crimsen. Courtney makes some pretty awful decisions (which land her on Hannah’s infamous list), but she’s also shown to be a formidable character, one you definitely don’t want to mess with. Although this is Michele’s first TV role (she just finished performing in a theater production of Bull in a China Shop), a quick look through her Instagram confirms that she’s just as much a force to be reckoned with as Courtney.

In a recent photo, she made a powerful statement about Hollywood’s deeply infuriating habit of whitewashing Asian characters in film. Seated on a counter in her dressing room, Michele wears a t-shirt calling out Scarlett Johansson’s casting in Ghost in the Shell, Tilda Swinton’s role in Doctor Strange, Matt Damon’s appearance in The Great Wall, and a very white Emma Stone’s turn as a part-Asian character in Aloha. It’s captioned, «#AsianAF #ScarJoPresents DM @willchoi if you want one, stay woke 🌊,» and the first of many posts in her feed that address the topic of representation in Hollywood. Michele herself is a perfect example of why Hollywood needs to leave this practice behind. Courtney might not be an Asian character in the book, but we can’t imagine anyone other than Michele embodying her intensity so perfectly.

The Incredibly Badass Meaning Behind Jason Momoa’s Most Prominent Tattoo


A post shared by Jason Momoa (@prideofgypsies) on

Of all the celebrities in Hollywood who’ve chosen to go under the needle, Jason Momoa’s eclectic collection of tattoos might hold the most meaning. He has his children‘s signatures and a few interesting phrases, but it’s his massive forearm tattoo that really catches the eye. It turns out the prominent rows of black triangles make up the Hawaiian actor’s family crest, which is a nod to their guardian, the shark. «It’s supposed to take the darkness out and bring in the light, but we’re still working on that,» he revealed. The bold pattern — which he recently had carved onto a custom barrel of Guinness — is also a protective element of sorts. Apparently whenever he enters the water it will help sharks recognize him as one of their own, which is good since he’s going to be swimming a lot over the next few years.
