Being in the spotlight film actors and celebrities are expected to always be forthcoming about their private lives, but how invading is too invading? In film interviews, personal questions irrelevant to the film are usually flung at them, especially to female actors. Tired of the inherent sexism dripping in interviewers’ questions actors like Scarlett Johansson, Kangana Ranaut, Cara Delevingne are raising their voice, exposing the condescension, finding allies in men, whether it’s Mark Ruffallo, Madhavan or John Green.
Kristen Stewart, of Twilight fame, is the newest to join the brigade. Watch this video to see how she turns the tables, in this interview with her co-star Jessie Eisenberg, who played Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, to kick sexism’s ass.
