Do women ever really "ask for it"? Absolutely not.
But according to Kirsten Dunst — who's definitely not courting any favor with the feminists these days — female actors can put themselves into positions that allow them to be taken advantage of by directors.
The W Magazine cover girl, in an interview with guest editor Sofia Coppola, weighed in on how some directors might put actresses in an uncomfortable position.
And instead of coming off as intelligent and sympathetic to fellow females (we really want to believe you're these things, Kirsten, but you're making it super hard), she came off as spouting the same rationale rapists use when they indicate their victims were "asking for it."
The exchange between the two included:
"What if a director pounces on you while working? Has that ever happened?" "No [laughs]. I don’t give off that vibe. I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship."
The only vibe Kirsten gives off here is being an ignorant brat. We don't believe that women "court that stuff."
Instead of putting off the blame, let's indict the directors who are clearly the wrongdoers in these situations.
