The inmates of Litchfield are getting miniaturized!
Following the return of Orange Is the New Black to Netflix on June 12, Funko is slated to release a new line of Pop figurines that includes Piper Chapman, Alex Vause, Red, Crazy Eyes—and, yes, even a mini-Pornstache. The Pops are slated to be released in July.
Some new event photos added to the Taylor Schilling Online Gallery from the 10th Annual Global Women’s Rights Awards event she attended last night.

I think most people realize that the images we see of celebrities aren’t real, but do you still feel a certain pressure to live up to that ideal? “I’m still relatively new to the business – I started just five years ago – but I can see how the pressure becomes internalized. And knowing how powerful it can be, I can’t even imagine being outside of this industry looking in. I love meeting the people I admire and seeing they’re all human – they have bags under their eyes and are dealing with their own insecurities and struggles. I think it’s so vital to keep that context in the forefront.”
I worry there is less context because of social media. In real life, you see the layers, but online it’s just this patina. “It takes a lot of bravery to be authentic and honest and to take that social mask off in order to connect with another human being. So much of what makes us who we are is smoothed away online. And what truly connects us is the wrinkles, not the smoothness.”
Participating in social media is supposed to be about making connections, but is it? “There is something so sad about going online and seeing almost everyone shouting ‘Notice me, notice me!’ Which is such a human desire—to be acknowledged. But me responding to that with some sort of ‘You’re noticed, you’re seen’ only perpetuates the loneliness. Because I’m not seeing you; I’m not noticing you. And whoever you are, you so deserve to be noticed and valued. I feel lucky to have not grown up with the Internet because it forced me to get out, struggle and be so messy.”
