Undesirable

I recently heard that Maggie Gyllenhaal, who is 37, was told she was too old to play a love interest to a 55-year-old man. What is wrong with Hollywood? Do they still ignore more than half the population? I mean, I AM 37. If the gorgeous Maggie Gyllenhaal has seen her last f***able day, as Amy Schumer so eloquently put it, what hope do I have of landing a man who won’t beat me? This is seriously stupid, Hollywood. I mean, are they next going to pair the late Jack Palance with the as-yet-unborn Cumberbaby? (That’s Benedict Cumberbatch’s child, in case you’re wondering.) I mean, how much is Hollywood still run by dirty old men? Do they want to date sperm now? That won’t do anything for you, you bunch of dirty old bums. No wonder I scream and cry at the plight of Hollywood actresses. There is so much hatred and fear of women in Hollywood, it freaks me out. I mean, personally, I have never had a last desirable day as much as a first desirable day, but I feel like the protesters in Ferguson right now. Do women need to stand on the street corners and “Occupy Hollywood” in order to be heard? Maybe I am just an ugly woman wanting to feel love, but don’t us undesirables need love too? Aren’t we human as well? Why does a woman’s age or weight still diminish her humanity?

  1. brilliantly put! it seems like Hollywood never walked out of the dark ages of the 50’s and 70’s with regards to rotten sexism and man-boys looking to hire barely legal women so they can perv on them and then “dispose” of them. a type of porn affliction where variety becomes the fetish as oppose to individuals and their many layers.
