Watch Actresses React to Being Asked Dumb, Sexist Questions

The mani-cam may be gone, but Hollywood reporters are pretty good at being sexist without accessories.

Watch Actresses React to Being Asked Dumb, Sexist Questions

The world may have persuaded E! to ditch their sexist mani-cam interview technique for the 2015 Academy Awards, but Hollywood reporters haven't needed help from red carpet dioramas to be sexist in the past.

This supercut, of actresses being asked questions, is revealing for just how sexist Hollywood still is, and how monotonous the questions are. The part where two different reporters say "you're a vision in yellow" and "you're a vision in blue" respectively is killer, as is Scarlet Johansson's reaction to a question, supposedly about her part in Iron Man but actually about what she eats: "You [Robert Downey Jr] get all the interesting existential questions, and I get the rabbit food question". Amen.
