“Watch Shows With Strong Women!”

We came across a piece Rose McGowan wrote for Hollywood Reporter responding to what a “critic” on Variety wrote against Renée Zellweger.

When we read there was a person who wrote cruel things against her, we checked again the Variety’s review of The Purge: Election Year because we remembered reading something disturbing against Elizabeth. It was not about her performance, but mostly about her look in the movie (not about aging, just about her look).

Guess what, it was the same man who wrote that too. So apparently his job is trying to make actresses feel bad and he gets paid for that. WOW!

Liz, in case you didn’t read the review, DO NOT READ IT, it’s not worth it. And it’s NOT true. In case you did read it, you should know that for this person writing nonsense stuff against women is just an habit.

There are a lot of people like this pseudo-critic who insult women’s look especially if they are getting older. As if getting older was a crime. Men get older as well, but they don’t reserve the same treatment to them. Well we all know how different the two universes (women/men) are and how hard it is everywhere (in Hollywood especially) for a woman to be equally paid and respected.

Rose McGowan wrote an amazing essay you all should read.

We are very much grateful for all the roles Elizabeth chooses to play because her women are always human with strong personality but still women. As Liz would say her characters are “steel magnolias”. As women we are very honoured to be represented by Juliet Burke, Erica Evans or Carine Strand, just to mention a few.

We haven’t seen The Purge yet (it hasn’t been released here yet) but when we read Liz was going to play a senator running for president, we knew Charlie Roan would have been another character that would have made us feel proud to be Elizabeth’s admirers.

We are also grateful because she doesn’t do anything that feels false to her, which means that what she does is true to us and to the other fans.

Quoting the Ellimam interview:

“When I ask Mitchell how an actor can manage to stay so un-Hollywood in that industry’s famously shark-infested waters, she doesn’t hesitate: “By not living in Hollywood, that’s the first thing you do!””

Quoting Elizabeth: “No matter the field, I would say support other women.”

And she also said “If you wanna see other strong women, watch shows with strong women!”

Yeah Liz, thank you so much for playing them!
