17 Things Women Do In Movies That Are Totally Unrealistic

Have any of these people ever even MET a woman?

1. Take off their glasses and suddenly become unrecognisably attractive.

Buena Vista Pictures

In real life, taking off your glasses doesn’t spark a series of life-changing events. It usually means you can’t see.

2. Never wear a jacket so that a boy can give one to them.


We're actually pretty good at preparing for the weather. You might not know this, but there are actually apps that tell you what weather to expect.

3. Have their entire personality be that they're closed off and unemotional...all until they meet the right man.

Paramount Pictures

Because we're all just bitterly waiting for The One to change us.

4. Eat food in a sensual manner.

Paramount Pictures

It's actually difficult to make any consumption of food sexy in real life. It's honestly just a necessary bodily function that happens to feel kinda good – like peeing.

5. Pensively rub lotion on their hands before getting into bed.

Why do women in movies always sit in bed and put on hand lotion before falling asleep? Is this something everyone’s…

It's like all of Hollywood is in on one loooong-running hand cream advert.

6. Wake up in the morning looking like they have a full face of makeup on.

20th Century Fox

No one ~wakes up like this~ unless they went to bed drunk without wiping off their makeup, and even then, you wake up with panda eyes. Imagine the state of your pillowcase.

7. Randomly misunderstand little things and completely blow them out of proportion.

20th Century Fox

In reality, after seeing your new boyfriend out with his sister you don't assume he's cheating and run off while he screams "IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK! I CAN EXPLAIN!" You stop and say hello and find out who she is.

8. Enjoy being told "you're not like other girls".

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

"Yeah, I'm not like other girls, and it's not because I'm a hot girl who enjoys drinking beer and watching football. I'm actually secretly a lizard person in a human suit."

9. Work only as journalists or in the fashion industry.

Columbia Pictures

Are they the only two jobs we can strive for? Is this what our women's suffrage mothers wanted for us?

10. Say that they learned to fight because they grew up with older brothers.


The correct answer to "Where did you learn to fight like that?" is "All the practice I've had from being pushed too far by morons like you."

11. Always orgasm through penetrative sex.

Columbia Pictures

It's no wonder real-life men think this is all it takes.

12. Walk around in oversized men's button-down shirts after sex, rather than, like, a T-shirt.

Warner Bros. Television Distribution

It's just inconvenient and honestly kinda smelly.

13. Spend all their time together just talking about men.


Surprisingly, women have other shared interests and don't spare every waking thought on the men in their life.

14. Maintain their flawless makeup even in post-apocalyptic chaos.

Miramax Films

She can be covered in blood and dirt but you will NEVER see her without her eyeliner game on point. Because she's a badass warrior whose winged eyeliner could kill a man. Duh.

15. Not to mention, find the time and resources to shave their legs and armpits, and pluck their eyebrows.

20th Century Fox

Again, dirt and blood are A-okay amidst an apocalypse, but body hair? God forbid.

16. Make out with each other just to turn a guy on.


It's just not realistic outside of the porn-sphere. Sorry (but not really).

17. Compete with each other from the moment they meet.

Paramount Pictures

Unless they are related, fictional women are always catty with each other but mutually respectful in all their relationships with men. Meanwhile, women in real life are actually really supportive and encouraging of each other.
