Evangeline Lilly

Evangeline Lilly doesn’t really know what “feminism” means

You probably remember Evangeline Lilly as the marginally talented and very attractive actress from Lost or The Hobbit, but oh my, she’s much more than that. She’s also demonstrated herself to be rather ignorant and sorta clueless, so let’s concentrate on that one today.

“Feminism” is a bit of a buzzword lately, one that celebrities totally love to exploit for their own gain or veer away from entirely because hey, equality for all! Evangeline took it to a whole new level, however, when she claimed that she’s not a feminist because… she doesn’t want to be a man?

“I don’t like the idea of playing a one-dimensional character who is just fearless, strong and killer and has instincts and just thrives in dangerous circumstances –- that’s really boring to me and I don’t think it represents what most women feel inside,” the 35-year-old told HuffPost Entertainment before release of “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.” “I’m very proud of being a woman, and as a woman, I don’t even like the word feminism because when I hear that word, I associate it with women trying to pretend to be men, and I’m not interested in trying to pretend to be a man. I don’t want to embrace manhood, I want to embrace my womanhood.”

I… um… did she… I mean… WHAT? I’m so confused. WHAT is she on about? Is she serious that she thinks being a feminist means you want to be a man? Wow, I never knew someone (aside from Kim Kardashian) could be so stupid. This is mindblowing.

Love It or Leave It: I Almost Forgot About You, Evangeline Lilly

Oh that hair. No. Girl.

To recap, this is what her hair looked like the last time we spoke of her on Evil Beet—which was two-and-a-half years ago:

Granted, her outfit this time around is much, much better, but the new hair? I’m definitely not feeling it. It looks like a home-job (not that there’s anything wrong with home-jobs; I do my own hair, too—cut, color, and all), but like how some home-jobs go, it looks … well, botched. It looks like something I did to my hair a decade ago by accident, but instead of going out in public and trying to rock it, I quickly dyed it dark again before anyone (including myself) really saw just how orange I was.

But hey! It’s hair. It changes all the time. And Evangeline Lilly is still super hot. This is girlfriend at the ‘Hobbit’ premiere, and while she’s not actually in this particular installment, she will be featured in the series’ next two films.

So. Love it or leave it? Here’s another photo to help you on your way to decision:

Love It or Leave It: Evangeline Lilly’s Brown Satin Jumper

Evangeline Lilly was snapped at last night’s premiere of Stones in Exile in New York City wearing what one could only describe as Blanche Devereaux‘s full-lengthy exercise romper.

I think satin’s pretty gross. I think that brown satin might be even worse. However, the chunky heels coupled with the tapered-ankle, brown satin jumper is just murder and the idea of gouging my eyes out with a hot spoon is sounding pretty damned appealing right about now.

Love it or leave it? More like rip the shit off, douse it with turpentine, find hallowed ground and bury the thing … but only after you set it on fire in sacrifice to the cruel, cruel god that made Evangeline Lilly think it would be okay to ever — ever! — go out in public in such a putrid ensemble.
