Lucy Lawless says it's just a rumour, but we can dream.
So, rumours are circulating that a modern reboot of the 90s cult show 'Xena: Warrior Princess' is set to hit screens in the near future. It would be great to see Lucy Lawless back in that badass leather corset but, chances are, if it does ever return, it's likely to have a new wearer. But who should it be?
In a world where feminism has become re-invigorated and strong female role models are being taken seriously in movies and on the small screen, it seems only right that 'Xena: Warrior Princess' be brought back as part of this phenomenon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are involved in her resurrection (literally) with the series suggested to arrive in 2016 and take on a kind of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' angle. Original star Lucy Lawless is keen to crush our dreams, though, telling Twitter, 'Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I'd love it to happen one day but it's still in the wishful thinking stage', but it still got us thinking about who we'd like to see in the role if it ever did come back.

Ellen Degeneres, Neil Patrick Harris and others show their happiness over the news.
All around the world hearts are bursting with victory as marriage equality is held up by law in every single US state. Celebrities have flocked to Twitter in their hundreds to express their support of the news, as the Supreme Court finally rules that same-sex marriage is legal under the Constitution.
Ellen Degeneres Tweeted her support of the marriage equality ruling
It's been a long time coming but the US has finally followed in the footsteps of the UK and Ireland by legalizing same-sex marriage in a move that has touched the hearts of millions. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy revealed the majority opinion was 5 to 4, before sharing his own thoughts on the verdict for those who would be affected. 'Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves', he said. 'Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.'

Zoe Saldana gave birth to twin boys earlier this year.
It's not as simple as you think, though.
Zoe Saldana and husband Marco have gone in a rather unorthodox direction when it comes to the terms of their marriage. Case in point: their last names. Perego decided to take on his wife’s last name, after marriage and it was a completely natural process.
Saldana and Perego are all about compromise in their family life.
According to Saldana, speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, Marco Saldana, made the choice himself. "Did you make him do that?" Jimmy Kimmel asked on Thursday night's Kimmel Live. "Oh my God," she said, "why does it mean a woman has to hold a gun, like, 'You're gonna be Saldana!'"
