Salma Hayek, who had breast implants and appeared nude in movie after movie in the 1990s, is coming out against sexism in Hollywood now that she is 49 and past prime.
Hayek has joined the HeForShe movement which whines about women who made their careers off their chests no longer winning roles when gravity strikes. The sense of entitlement is thick, and they fail to detect the irony of being a sex star who now complains of the very sexism that made them multi-millionaires.
From the Inquisitr:
Salma Hayek has called out sexism in Hollywood, joining the growing ranks of women who see something wrong. While some might consider Michael Bay and Adam Sandler the biggest problems with the industry, Salma is hoping to change the film industry in a different way.
Michael Bay has simply used the same formula for success for over a decade, and thanks to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, we finally caught on. Adam Sandler has done the same thing, and he seems to have been recycling the same formula as well. The Wedding Singer and Happy Gilmore appear to be part of a long-gone era when the critics still considered him funny. Now critics instantly hate anything Bay and Sandler get involved with.
This may be part of the problem, as many major directors seem to be indulging in a trend that such notables as Emma Watson (Perks of Being a Wallflower), Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises), and Salma Hayek call sexism in Hollywood.
Watson, also the spokesperson for the feminist movement known as HeForShe, pointed out the misogyny in Hollywood, as previously reported by the Inquisitr. She has told the press that a majority of the people in charge of film making are men, and fellow actress Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Dark Knight) agreed.
As also reported by the Inquisitr, Anne Hathaway pointed out how the roles she can get are dwindling, being given instead to women in their 20s. This could easily come down to simply having men in charge, as older women such as Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson, and Sandra Bullock still land roles in blockbuster films, though not as many.
Salma Hayek is facing the same issues with sexism, claiming that actresses in their 30s are getting ignored. She took a moment to attend the Variety Power of Women 2015 conference and speak out against the predominance of men in the industry. “We are the generation that said, ‘We’re not going away at 30.’ They cannot ignore us anymore,” the actress stated.Oddly enough, Jennifer Anniston at 46 is still getting roles. She spent her money on acting lessons instead of silicone.
