PopWatch Confessional: What makes you embrace your inner badass?

Let’s face it: If you spend your days voluntarily staring at a variety of glowing rectangles, chances are you’re probably not much of a daredevil. That said, the things you’re seeing and hearing via those rectangles might inspire you to wish you could change your ways—if only for a few minutes after the movie/show/song is over.

So in honor of Mockingjay — Part 1‘s rebelliously action-packed release this weekend, we’ve posed the following question to our staff this week: What’s the movie/TV show/song/book that makes you embrace your inner badass?

Ashley Fetters, EW.com news editor: I’ll never get over my first encounter with Lara Croft. I apologize in advance, purists: The iteration I loved was Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, not the video-game character. But either way, I think it was the first time I’d ever seen strength and swagger look so damn cool on a woman. Today there are, like, 20 different badass movie women I routinely pretend to be when I’m at the gym (Run Lola Run‘s Lola when I’m on the treadmill, Demi Moore in G.I. Jane when I’m successfully executing 500 one-arm push-ups, etc.), but whenever I need to summon the guts to handle something that terrifies me, the question is still, WWLCD? READ FULL STORY

Why 'Shrek' scared 'Walking Dead' star Chad L. Coleman

Chad-L-Coleman

The great thing about having The Walking Dead cast members stop by when you’re not pressing them for spoilers is they’re happy to tell you anything else you’d like to know.

Case in point: Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese), who took our Pop Culture Personality Test and named the movie that scared him even though it wasn’t supposed to (Shrek), the movie he wishes he could watch again for the first time (A Soldier’s Story), and the movie he almost walked out of (Tyler Perry’s The Family That Preys).
