Exclusive: You’ll Never Guess What Laverne Cox Uses To Wash Her Face



Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox has baby smooth skin … Literally.

The actress, who graces the cover of Essence’s October issue alongside Danai Gurira, Alfre Woodard and Nicole Beharie, revealed to HipHollywood that she washes her face with wait for it … BABY SHAMPOO. “I’ve been washing my face with baby shampoo for 15 years,” she told us during the publication’s “A Toast To Primetime” celebration.

“Kevin Aviance who I worked with about 15 years ago suggested it to me. I thought ‘oh that sounds like a good idea, if it’s safe enough for babies.’ It’s pretty good,” she explained.

While on the red carpet, Cox, who made history this year as the first openly transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy, also opened up her documentary Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word set to premiere on October 17 on MTV. “It’s about a group of seven young trans people from the ages of 12 to 24 and it’s about their journey as trans people, but also as young people trying to find and have other things that young people experience and do but they have the added version of being trans.”


Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First



If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
