In a recent interview with Marie Claire, the 64-year-old actress opened up about owning her age (and her gray curls), having her daughters in the industry and being a woman in Hollywood.
When talking about her experiences with male actors, the Four Weddings and a Funeral star remembered a moment back in 2016, “right after Trump got elected,” when she arrived on set and “nobody seemed to care about the vagina[-grabbing] comment.”
“I went to do a job and I had my very first panic attack,” she said. “I was getting ready to shoot something, and I turn around and it’s, like, a roomful of men. Like, a sea of men.”
After making that realization, the star “dropped to her knees” and had to leave the room. In a fake bathroom on set, she took a moment to breathe and tell herself, “Get your s— together” before heading back to work. “It just freaked me out, not seeing any other women,” the actress concluded.
Since then, MacDowell has “become very conscious of looking around and finding the women on set.”
I’d love to tell an off-color joke, like something you’d hear in a typical locker room, in line at the grocery store and watch the dramatics unfold with her. She’d probably go fetal, pee herself, and start reeee-ing.
Of course, I’m sure she has an assistant shop for her. So far removed from the real world.
Woman walks into a room full of men, men behave normally and don’t grab her pussy, woman has panic attack.
Fuck sake. I’m willing to bet shes gone her entire life without getting finger blasted by a room full of strangers and now suddenly she can’t function in normal society without engaging in histrionics? So very brave of her to even step outside with so many predators on the loose.
Why did this happen to her in 2016 when there was a more diverse industry than when she started? She has no doubt been in many situations in Hollywood during her career when it was all men way before this.
She’s weak and has had her mind melted by politics.
“Grab em by the pussy.” Yes. That’s precisely why those women flock to celebrities. For dick. They’re called groupies for a reason. Because that’s what they are. Starfuckers. Whores. After celebrity dick.
