Maggie Gyllenhaal calls out journalist for calling her voice and look 'cartoonish'
Maggie Gyllenhaal has a new-ish film on Netflix called The Kindergarten Teacher which is out in UK theaters today. It co-stars Gael Garcia Bernal, love him, and she plays a teacher who mentors a gifted young student, to the point of obsession. Heres the link to the trailer. It looks like a compelling thriller and has a decent RT rating.

Maggie did an interview with The Independent, she talked to Patrick HJ Smith, who is their head of culture. Patrick opened the piece with an assholish comment about Maggies voice and looks and how that undermines her message. It was sexist and his editor should have changed it. Maggie called him out on it. Instead of a proper apology, he explained his sh-tty reasoning because thats what you would expect from someone who would do that in the first place. Heres that passage and that exchange. Keep in mind this is the start of the article.

Talking to Maggie Gyllenhaal can be a little disorienting. She has a high-pitched, cartoonish voice, which she uses to express deep things. One critic memorably said that she possessed a ?Kewpie-doll silliness?, but maybe it?s a flaw in our culture that we expect serious thoughts to be couched in sonorous tones. ?We live in a masculine world,? she says, ?and in America ? especially very recently ? as much as we would like to believe otherwise, it?s a misogynistic world.?

[From The Independent]

I apologise if that?s how it came across. The quote you?re referring to was from another writer. I wanted to highlight it as an eg of the way you've been underestimated for superficial, gendered reasons. I think you and your work are brilliant, which I tried to make apparent

Busy Philipps: 'I thought I was destined to rule the world'

Busy Philipps: 'I thought I was destined to rule the world'
Busy Philipps spoke at her alma mater, Loyola Marymount University, last Friday at their Alliance of Women Philanthropists (AWP) Speaker Series. Even with early success with her role on Freaks and Geeks, Busy said things weren?t easy. Hollywood execs told her to lose weight, which she thought would change her identity. Instead of acquiescing, she stood up for herself and carved her own niche. The overall theme of the AWP event was disruption, something Busy thinks she was born to do.

Philipps began working as an actor in the late 90s, during her sophomore year at LMU. She auditioned for over 90 television pilots, crying late at night to her then-boyfriend Colin Hanks (who also attended LMU) that she ?need[ed] to be an actress.?

She said, ?I started working when I was young ? I was an actor-for-hire.? Her first job was on the beloved sitcom ?Freaks and Geeks.?

Her hardship as a woman in Hollywood began after ?Freaks, Philipps recalled.

?I faced a lot of pressure about my own body as a young woman. I was told to change things that would?ve made me less me,? she said. Philipps said she would often get calls from her agents telling her to lose weight, sometimes bluntly and sometimes in coded messages about wanting her to feel her best.

Through all of this, Philipps said her ideals never faltered. ?I thought I was destined to rule the world,? she said. ?I really believe my mission in life is to dismantle the patriarchy.?

During a period where she struggled to find work due to her reluctance to travel in order to take care of her child, she discovered a new area where she could dismantle the patriarchy. ?There was a deficit in the late-night space for women,? she said.

She walked through the doors of Tina Fey?s production company, where she had done work in the past, and demanded a late night show according to Philipps. She told a story about ?bro-y? men at the company passively telling her that they would see what they could do, only for her to firmly restate that she would have a show.

?When I created my own show, I worked to make sure there was diversity,? she said. ?Creatively, I believe we are 99 percent female. This was important to me ? these decisions were made strategically.?

?Part of what motivates me is that I want to disrupt. I am doing things like talking about women?s health in casual ways,? she said. ?I?m trying to normalize being a woman.? On her show, Phillips discusses her period, abortion and other women?s health topics. ?Being a woman is political,? she said.

[The Loyolan]

I always felt I was doing my part to destroy the patriarchy by living on my terms. Once I had kids, I realized I needed to become a more active voice. (I know it should not have taken children for me to realize this, but now I?m making up for lost time.) One thing I?m trying to do is what Busy is doing on her show: normalize being a woman by speaking about women
