Amber Rose’s How to Be a Bad Bitch now has the enviable distinction of securing an enthusiastic cosign from living legend Christoph Waltz. Waltz stopped by James Corden’s Late Late Show on Wednesday and was generous enough to help him launch a new segment called "James and Reggie’s Book Club," a segment that obviously also includes Reggie Watts and, perhaps less obviously, actor Johnny Galecki.
The inaugural discussion centered around Rose’s How to Be a Bad Bitch, with some particularly fascinating insight from Waltz on the book’s importance in his own life. Waltz quickly reveals that this club-prompted reading actually marks the second time he’s enjoyed Rose’s book, the general philosophy of which apparently resonates quite deeply with Waltz.
"I was a slut-shamer. I was disgusting," Rose said in our recent interview centered on her SlutWalk event in Los Angeles, discussing her history with feminism, a prominent discussion throughout How to Be a Bad Bitch. "I came down on women all the time if I felt insecure. I feel like every woman has done that because it’s what society teaches us to do." Take Waltz's advice: read it twice.
