Heather Graham Points Out the Obvious: Hollywood Is Still Sexist

Heather Graham hasn’t been doing, well… much of anything recently, so she’s decided to take a stand against a very important issue in the hope of regaining some amount of relevancy: sexism in Hollywood. That’s right, ladies and gents – I know it’s mind-blowing and a totally new fact, but Hollywood still isn’t the most amazing place for women, to be honest. Also, women need the freedom to express themselves sexually, apparently. I don’t even know any more.

From Women’s Health:

“The industry is totally sexist. It’s run by men mostly. Look at the movies that are coming out. How many are about women? If you look at who the leads are, they’re probably 75% men.”

“A woman being able to express her sexuality is the ultimate form of freedom. In American culture, I feel like women don’t have the safety to express themselves sexually.

“There’s a lot of movies about men’s fantasies, but what about women? What would the world be like if women asked for everything they wanted?”

“[Sex is] an aspect of my personality. Sex is a part of who I am and it took me a long time to feel good about it. I wasn’t sure if it was good or bad to be a person who really enjoys sex.”

I mean… okay. I literally have zero to say about this/her because it’s all so obvious and yo, Heather Graham, it’s not 1998 anymore, girl. I mean, I get what she’s saying about men still running the game and I think women should do whatever the hell they want so long as they’re not hurting anyone else, but like… homegirl is saying this like she just thought of it and is expressing a totally new idea.
