I saw this movie in theaters and watched it for the second time tonight. Completely different experience. Didn’t like it then, love it now.

the phrase 'ahead of its time' doesn't even begin to cover it

I think it was just something at 24 that I didn’t care about whereas at 34 I’m like “I see what you did there and fuck yes.”

yup, didnt see it when it came out but saw it a few years later while it was still controversial and totally loved it but it was so hard to get people to see why

The way hollywood did her? UNFORGIVABLE. Not only was she right about EVERYTHING she was saying that she was left to be seen as 'difficult' is just too much TBQH

I do think really beautiful women are treated like dirt sometimes, even by other women, because beauty is seen as the ultimate currency in a male-centric world so they can't have "real" problems. Even here people will roll their eyes at women who say anything negative about being good looking (or call them vain/delusional for saying that they are good looking). It's sick.

I’m pretty average looking but have been catcalled a few times and it makes me honestly feel horrible for extremely good-looking women and what they must have to deal with on a daily basis from creeps.

MTE. I'm plain af (growing up, I was bullied for ~being ugly~), and yet I STILL get harassed occasionally by men. (It really does happen to every woman.) I work with a few natural beauties who put up with that shit constantly, and I don't know how they handle it. Men are terrifying.

One time on the red carpet she said something to an interviewer about feeling like she looked bad and the comments from women were all really defensive like she was saying it to make them feel bad about themselves when it wasn't personal.

The other comments were from men who were either calling her a whore or saying really sexual things about her. This was literally like 10 years ago but I remember it because there wasn't a single nice comment from anyone. That must be such a shit feeling.

she said a lot of dumb shit when she was younger but she never deserved to have her career tank the way it did. Michael Bay deserves to DIAF and Spielberg is a piece of shit for letting that story spread that he fired her when he knew damn well that wasn't what happened.

Bay has said that it was Spielberg who wanted her fired, but like years after the fact Spielberg said he had nothing to do with that.
