Conversations About Her

Rose McGowan Dropped By Agency For Making Stand For Feminism | Film News

 

After tweeting about the sexism she faced when receiving an audition note for a role for an Adam Sandler movie; that called for actresses to ‘understand’ the context of the movie and to wear a form fitting tank top to show off their cleavages, Rose McGowan has been fired by her agency Innovative.

 

When speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the whole charade, Rose said that “I’m not trying to vilify Adam Sandler… Although someone did tell me that when he did his Netflix deal, he said, ‘I signed with Netflix because it rhymes with Wet Chicks’. I mean, what? What in the f**k is going on? No“.

 

I say go on Rose, it only takes one person to start a revolution. The countless amounts of audition notes that I have seen, that call for a ‘pretty girl’, ‘hot body’, ‘beautiful woman’, makes me so sad. Why does a woman have to score a role by the way she looks and not by the talent that she has? It’s the reason why we are stuck watching so many films that have soulless model types running around on screen, just so they can entertain the ‘male gaze’ and take us away from the real meaning of the film. I mean really do I want to see cleavage all up in my face? The answer is no.

 

To all the naysayers that say that McGowan should just shut up, I say fall back. If statements such as ‘Donna make sure you come to the next meeting in a short mini skirt that shows your legs and a tight shirt that is buttoned up halfway so that we can see your chest‘ aren’t acceptable in other places of employment, why must women have to accept it in Hollywood?

I am a television obsessive. I live, breathe, sleep television. I love watching it. Talking to others about it, oh and writing about it. TV is literally is my life. My dream is to one day write for television or at least appear in a show. Oh and spoilers beware.
