The light of my life Sarah Paulson is in the upcoming Ocean’s 11 reboot Ocean’s 8 along with Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett and more of your faves. And, to answer a very dumb question, she certainly isn’t worried about fighting with the female cast members of that film, thank you for asking.
When asked by The Wrap to address some of the concerns lodged against the cast of director Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters —namely about whether or not a group of women can film a movie together without pulling hair and yowling – she dismissed that presumption outright.
“Not in the slightest. I’ve never had anything like that happen on that set, I don’t come from a world where I expect that … I just think it’s sort of sad, really, that that would be the expectation,’ Paulson said. “I promise you it would not be like that if a bunch of boys would get together — ‘bro fights.’ I hate to support that narrative or that idea and it certainly couldn’t be further from the truth.”
What the Wrap is likely referring to is when a sexist film producer once told him to expect “cat fights” if he cast more than one female lead in a movie – a notion that is clearly sexist and patently untrue. Women don’t fight with other women just because they’re women; people fight with each other on set or at work or in line for coffee because they’re assholes or because they’re tired. Dudes fight. Cats(the animals) fight. Dogs fight. This line of reasoning is dumb, but you already knew that.
Besides, as you can see from these photos from the set of the movie that we at Jezebel are so freaking pumped about, everyone looks like they’re having a great time. No one’s fighting! Everyone’s getting along just fine.
