Oscar Nominees Gave Perfect Responses To Gendered Questions
WHAT I AM WEARING IS MY CAREER, THANK YOU FOR ASKING.
This awards season, a Twitter campaign demanded that reporters ask women better questions than "What are you wearing?" or "How long did it take you to get ready?" — aka "Ask Her More." Reese Witherspoon and Amy Poehler, among other celebrities, publicly supported the call to ask female performers about their careers: "We are more than just our dresses," Witherspoon told ABC's Robin Roberts when asked about the campaign from The Representation Project. Despite the polite request, some actors were still fielding some decidedly gendered questions. And some of those actors shut 'em right down.
