We seem to be reaching a tipping point with the amount of bizarrely sexist shit that Hollywood women are willing to put up with quietly. It seems like more and more of them are trying to shine a light on just how degrading casting and working in the industry can be. And it’s not just confined to actresses, as Shit People Say to Women Directors has taught us, but actresses frequently have the most public platform and lately they’ve really been using it.

The latest installment in this ongoing series is this tweet from Rose McGowan for a casting for an Adam Sandler movie.

I like how they first note that you have to read the script to understand the “context” of the scene, when the specification that the actress wear a form fitting, cleavage bearing tank top and tight pants to the casting really makes the context clearer than the script could. It also makes me wonder what’s really more important in this casting, how one understands and performs the scene or just how closely they adhere to that helpful note encouraging push-ups bras. Both seem to be given equal weight here.
