Mila Kunis Writes Open Letter About Sexism In Hollywood


Mila Kunis has come forward with a first-hand account of facing sexism in Hollywood.

While we often hear vague stories of rampant sexism ruling Hollywood, it's harder to pin down specific cases.

It's not easy for actresses to speak out about these things, mostly because 50 percent of the time their careers get ruined when they do.

Look at Katherine Heigl — she called "Knocked Up" sexist one time, and basically never worked on a big project again because of it.

So this open letter about gender bias from Mila Kunis should not be taken lightly. The 33-year-old actress is taking a risk, undoubtedly, but for a more than worthy cause.

In an essay titled "You'll Never Work In This Town Again…" published on A Plus, Mila shared two stories of sexism she experienced in Hollywood.

Mila described a time when she refused to "pose semi-naked on the cover of a men's magazine" for a movie promotion, and a producer responded with a threat to end her career by saying to her,

This phrase, besides being rude AF, struck a nerve with Mila.

She wrote,

But as far as Mila can see, change does not seem to be coming any time soon.

The second instance of sexism Mila shared came from another producer, this time while she was working on a new project with three female friends, and one male producer.

Mila wrote,

In light of this most recent incident, Mila decided she is "done with compromising," and "done with being compromised."

Mila vowed to call out the sexist comments she hears in the industry from now on.

She wrote,

Finally, she said,

Hell yeah, Mila! You tell those bigots where you can and can't work.
