To My Aspiring Actresses...

The other day, I read an article about Benedict Cumberbatch's decision that he won't accept a role unless his female co-stars receive the same pay. Good form, Mr. Cumberbatch!

I shared the article on my Facebook with my notes, below. So many actresses and mothers of actresses liked and commented on the post. Out of all the young boys and mothers of male actors I've worked with over the years, not a single one of them liked the post or my comments. I didn't receive any negative feedback, but their silence shows you that YES, THIS IS A PROBLEM.

But here's what I had to say...

I Did a Thing!

I Like Pretty Food

Josh teases me because I take so much effort to make my food like nice. But deep down, he really appreciates it because he knows it enhances the gastronomic experience. Pretty food tastes good.
