Mila Kunis is making big waves as she has now condemned a Hollywood producer–a nameless person at this point–who threatened her for refusing to pose semi-nude.. She is also joining a number of other women in Tinseltown who say the same thing: They are tired of sexism..
Reporting from Caitlin Gibson in the WASHINGTON POST:
Kunis didn’t name the producer who told her she’d “never work in this town again” if she refused to pose partially naked on the cover of a men’s magazine to promote a film years ago. His words made her “livid,” she wrote, and she said “no.”
“And guess what? The world didn’t end,” she wrote in her essay for A Plus magazine. “The film made a lot of money and I did work in this town again, and again, and again. What this producer may never realize is that he spoke aloud the exact fear every woman feels when confronted with gender bias in the workplace.”
“Throughout my career, there have been moments when I have been insulted, sidelined, paid less, creatively ignored, and otherwise diminished based on my gender,” Kunis wrote. “And always, I tried to give people the benefit of the doubt; maybe they knew more, maybe they had more experience, maybe there was something I was missing. I taught myself that to succeed as a woman in this industry I had to play by the rules of the boy’s club. But the older I got and the longer I worked in this industry, the more I realized that it’s bull—-! And, worse, that I was complicit in allowing it to happen.”
