Idiot interviews smart people, too much cringing to handle
Wow, the Represent #48 interview with Betty Gilpin is hard to watch. The interviewer who clearly has not seen this actresses’ work and other podcast interviews and she asks these stupid questions, at one point saying that because the actress is blonde and young, how does she feel how easy it is to get roles, while for years Gilpin has written a Lenny Letters and has spoken out about the harassment, sexism, objectification, and immense difficulty she has getting roles where she plays something other than a Barbie. It was painful to hear an intelligent actress be interviewed by an idiot in the Represent series. She makes the stupid assumption that if a woman is young and white then her life is super easy.
