This is such a great point. There was a powerful commercial that made me cry with a male survivor of sexual assault by a woman, related to what you said. Trigger warning.
If a man is assaulted or molested by another man, at least he can frame it as such in our society: that his power is being taken.
I feel the same way about Rosamund Pike, Esther Warren and Heather Graham. They were super hot and getting all the magazine covers. Then nothing. I wonder who they turned down or pissed off.
I was just thinking that, re: Keanu. Sweet, kind men.
The list of ingenues who had a handful of big movies before their careers abruptly nosedived is so disconcertingly long. Lately, I’ve found myself looking at Samantha Mathis in a whole new way.
Yeeaahhh, always had a soft spot for him. Hearing him talk about gaining weight and caring for his special needs kid was VERY relatable for me.
One of my first “adult” crushes (ie not a crush on a teen actor like JTT or Young dicaprio) was on Fraser in the Mummy. Ive always held a soft spot for his movies <3
Boom. 100% agreement. He really seems like one of the good guys. A Keanu Reeves if you will.
Bedazzled also spoke to me in a deeper way as well. I still will watch it through if I catch on TV.
I also enjoyed the piece. I thought the author was trying to capture “Why didn’t Brendan end up with a larger career?” and it was a million different reasons: injuries, family issues, sexual harassment, low-self esteem made worse by harassment. I mean, sure he’s got a pretty steady IMDB page but there are a lot of bit…
I completely agree with and support Monique. Of course she was labeled as “difficult” and bitchy years ago because she questioned the wrong people and expected not to be treated as less-than—all while being Black, not light-skinned, fat, and female.
I think Monique is right, but since everyone else gets pushed around by money, it looks “ungrateful” when she speaks up. She’s definitely is being punished for standing up for herself and not expressing it in an “acceptable” way. I don’t think she is helping her personal cause by calling people/companies out, but I…
That GQ article was hard for me to read, He seemed like a raw nerve ending in it. One of the best I’ve read in along time.
This is an excellent and accurate comment.
To a woman?
I beginning to believe that whenever and actor or actress falls off after having a hot career, it’s probably because they wouldn’t play the game and turned down unwanted sexual advances. The women are then labeled bitchy, difficult and demanding. The men are labeled has beens, drunks or drug addicts who let themselves…
The scene in George of the Jungle where George runs with the horses was a very important moment for my early womanhood, so I have always had a soft spot for Brendan Fraser. I also like Bedazzled and Blast from the Past without any irony.
Unburied poop is a sign of aggression and territorial behavior.
1.) I want that slime cushion! Nevermind that my cat would immediately occupy it (as the cat in the picture has done) and deny me access to it—as a Dragon Quest fanboy, I need that thing in my life.
2.) My cat informs me that human attempts to confine “Cat Day” to a single period on the calendar are, like…
