The Hollywood Reporter recently spoke to Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Kate “Great” McKinnon, Golden Globe Winner Gina Rodriguez (that’s her full name now), Ellie Kemper, and Tracee Ellis Ross about what it’s like being successful women surrounded by sexism. For instance, Dunham heard some guy on Girls mutter, “I hate this job. I can’t wait to be back on a show where there’s a man at the helm,” while Rodriquez was once told during an audition, “We love her. But can she come back in with a tight black dress?”
McKinnon was asked about whether she’s nervous to play Hillary Clinton on SNL: “I do feel pressure,” she said. “I’m rooting for her, obviously. It’s a combination of the writers’ take on her but also this contrast between a woman so driven and hardened by her experiences… and this sweetie granny from the Midwest.” And if she wrote a campaign slogan for Clinton?
SCHUMER: “Snitches Get Stitches.”
MCKINNON: “Guys, Come On.”
DUNHAM: I love that people are like, “She’s not qualified to be president.” Then everybody else they bring in, they’re like, “He managed a Ben & Jerry’s for a while.” (Laughter.)
SCHUMER: “He’s the night manager at Petco.”
KEMPER: I want to hear other slogans!
DUNHAM: “Blondes Have More Foreign Policy Experience.” (Via)
That’s an important lesson. Only vote for the person who worked at Baskin-Robbins.
