Hey guys. Whew. I just went on Facebook and just got full-on pissed off. And there’s a lot to be pissed off about. (And, please, #metoo – isn’t every female a #metoo ? And guys, if you didn’t know this and this is shocking to you, then why have you been ignoring us? I guess this is a big part of my annoyance.)
Look. I need to be positive because I have shit to do today. I have movies I’m working on with positive, interesting, intelligent female characters, and I’m just too busy to be bummed out.
So I turned off Facebook. I had some eggs. I’m about to press play on my morning workout. I’m meeting with another cool woman of Hollywood today. I’m pushing myself in our June PR and doing tons of emailing later. I’ve got to feel good. In that way, that’s how I can fight all of this. “Nolite te bastardes carborundorum” and so forth.
This is my way of fighting. Being the best possible version of myself. Taking care of my health, shouting about my little movie over and over again, and advocating for myself as an actress, screenwriter, filmmaker. (And not spending the day smiling nicely to another untalented guy giving me not very good and very unsolicited advice, and, oh, that’s another tale for another day.)
We do our best, we push extra hard. And the wrath of angry women online is just blazing right now. The new art and the changes in our politics and our economy and everything that will emerge out of this will be incredible. I’m positive. Because you can be angry and positive at the same time. Now I have to get to work. Cheers.
