— A real thing that an author said totally seriously during a professional presentation at my office today. Almost walked out. Cool Sexism, dude! Totally makes me want to buy your stupid fucking books.
So okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to my generation or anything, but…I don’t get the deal with Jason Sudeikis. I guess he is attractive in the way that a grown man who looks like a chubby little boy is attractive, but I have yet to see him nail any role that’s not “Cringeworthy Asshole” (an entirely different animal from “Lovable Asshole”, let’s be real), and I just can’t get excited about that. To be fair, I haven’t given him much of a chance (to be fair to me, there is not much to go on), and this bias I hold could be entirely becuase I have to pin the Hall Pass hate on someone other than my beloved Owen Wilson. Don’t worry, nobody involved in that infuriating piece of sexist garbage is entirely blameless (and I am looking at you Pam Beasley), but if you had to stop and think for a moment “Is there one actor who, at some point, should have said to themselves ‘This is awful. I shouldn’t let these words come out of mouth and into the world. I am promoting the most outdated gender roles and propagating unfounded discrimination*’?”, that person is Jason Sudeikis. But he’s so used to being that guy that he probably didn’t even notice.
And yes, this is just my way of coming to terms with the fact that I will probably see Horrible Bosses and I will probably hate him the whole time.
*All for founded discrimination, I think.
