Whitney Cummings’ self-isolation wardrobe consists of tie-dye and sweatpants.

The 37-year-old actress and comedian is holed up at home as she practises social distancing in an effort to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus, and she told The Hollywood Reporter that she’s embracing a more comfortable style.

“There’s not a zipper in sight or an underwire bra on the horizon for months. I am dressed like (actor) Pauly Shore in the nineties – in tie-dye sweatpants, on my seventh day of dry shampoo,” she laughed. “I look like a tech billionaire on vacation in Tahoe, with a lot of super normcore Patagonia fleeces.

“I also feel like I’m ready to go at any moment. I’m wearing sneakers in my house. If s**t hits the fan, I’m ready. I’ve got my dried beans and a fanny pack on all the time for no reason.”

And Cummings, the creator of U.S. sitcom 2 Broke Girls, shared that she’s picking up some new hobbies while in self-isolation.

“I’m reading all the books that I pretended I read two years ago – the ones that I lied about to everyone when I told them I read them. I’m going to catch up with all my lies, basically, so that they are no longer lies,” she joked.

She also blasted those complaining about being bored during the lockdown and urged them to do something for their communities instead.

“There’s so much stuff we can do to be useful,” Whitney fired. “There are plenty of things you could be doing to help people. Drop off groceries for older people. Drop off groceries to nurses. Make masks! Why is anyone bored?”

Chrissy Teigen celebrated the 10-year anniversary of her breast implants on Monday.

The model-turned-TV personality took to Instagram on Monday to upload throwback snaps of her walking the runway in white underwear during the 2010 Beach Bunny Swimwear fashion show, and in the caption, she jokingly wrote, “Happy 10 year anniversary to these t**ties and RIP to these teeth.”

Her post received numerous comments from celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, who simply left a bunch of crying laughing face emojis.

Chrissy later responded: “@kimkardashian you guys were at this show!!! It’s why I was listed as ‘model walks runway’ no one cares about me bahahahahah.”

Comedian Whitney Cummings also commented, writing, “Wait isn’t 10 years when we need to take them out?!” referring to recommendations by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons that advise exchanging or removing implants every 10 to 15 years.

The beauty, who is married to crooner John Legend, replied by admitting she wants them removed but cannot while she’s self-isolating during the coronavirus pandemic.

“@whitneycummings yes dude and I really want them OUT,” she wrote. “Quarantine would have been perfect time but apparently it’s not ‘ESSENTIAL’ smh (shaking my head).”

Chrissy told U.K. magazine Glamour earlier this year she would like her implants removed and her breasts lifted, but noted the risks are too high after having children.

“If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift,” the 34-year-old explained. “I think you’re supposed to replace them (implants) every 10 years. But when you have kids you think about (the risks) of surgery and I think, ‘This is not the way I want to die – in boob surgery!'”

Michael B. Jordan has announced his production company will be adopting an inclusion rider for all future projects, after Frances McDormand’s powerful speech at the Oscars last weekend (04Mar18).

The 60-year-old star picked up the Best Actress gong at the ceremony for her role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and concluded her speech with two words: “inclusion rider”.

Following her speech, people flooded the Internet to find out what an inclusion rider is, with actress and writer Whitney Cummings tweeting that “an inclusion rider is something actors put into their contracts to ensure gender and racial equality in hiring on movie sets”.

On Wednesday, Black Panther star Michael took to Instagram to tell fans that his production company will be using the rider in all contracts going forward.

“In support of the women & men who are leading this fight, I will be adopting the Inclusion Rider for all projects produced by my company Outlier Society,” Michael wrote. “I’ve been privileged to work with powerful woman & persons of colour throughout my career & it’s Outlier’s mission to continue to create for talented individuals going forward. If you want to learn more about how to support the cause – link in bio. #OutlierSociety #AnnenbergInclusionInitiative.”

The idea of an inclusion rider was first raised by Dr. Stacy L. Smith, the founder and director of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, in a 2016 TED Talk.

Speaking to The Guardian after the Oscars wrapped, the academic admitted she was “utterly elated” that Frances had mentioned her idea.

“It’s a complete surprise,” a shocked Stacy added.

Other stars to have already committed to the concept of an inclusion rider include Brie Larson and Don Cheadle.

Frances McDormand’s ‘inclusion rider’ Oscars speech goes viral

Frances McDormand officially set the Internet ablaze with the closing words of her Oscars speech – “inclusion rider”.

The veteran actress picked up her second Academy Award for Best Actress on Sunday night (04mar18), for her role as Mildred in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, a mother demanding answers from a small town police force after her daughter is murdered.

Taking to the stage at the Dolby Theatre, Frances first floored the audience when she asked “all the female nominees in every category” to stand with her, and she name-checked Meryl Streep to encourage the other women to rise.

Then as she was finishing up she stated, “I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentleman: inclusion rider,” before curtseying as she exited the stage.

Viewers flocked online to find out what inclusion rider meant, with the term trending on Twitter and Facebook. Actress and writer Whitney Cummings tweeted an explanation, “an inclusion rider is something actors put into their contracts to ensure gender and racial equality in hiring on movie sets. We should support this for a billion reasons, but if you can’t find a reason to, here’s one: it will make movies better.”

Backstage after her win, Frances shared that she’d only recently found out about an inclusion rider and she is now committed to the concept.

“I just found out about this last week. This has always been available to all — everybody who does a negotiation on a film — which means you can ask for or demand at least 50 per cent diversity in not only the casting but the crew. The fact that I just learned that after 35 years in the film business — we aren’t going back,” she promised.

The idea of an inclusion rider was first raised by Stacy Smith, a gender equality in film and television researcher at the University of Southern California, in a 2016 TED Talk.

Speaking to The Guardian after the Oscars wrapped, the academic admitted she was “utterly elated” that Frances had mentioned her idea.

“It’s a complete surprise,” a shocked Stacy added.

Following on from Frances’ memorable speech, stars threw their weight behind the idea.

“I’m committed to the Inclusion Rider. Who’s with me?” Brie Larson tweeted, while Don Cheadle told fans: “been doing that” with a thumbs up emoji next to an inclusion rider story.
