Anna Faris

20th Wave Feminism

I guess what makes me a feminist is reading the Anna Faris profile in The New Yorker, and being upset that a “good” role for a comedic actress is one about financial disempowered woman who gets insecure after reading in Marie Claire that no woman who has slept with more than 20 men will ever get married, and this character, having already slept with 20 men, decides the only way she can find fulfillment and regain her integrity, is by resuming a relationship, and ultimately marrying, one of those men she has already rejected for one reason or another.

And I guess, also finding it upsetting that studio executives thought a woman who slept with 20 men couldn’t be likable.
