Charlize Theron gets downgraded a fair bit b/c there's far too many people in Hollywood who have said they cavorted on the "casting couch" with her.
Why would that matter?!
Nobody downgrades Hef for his cavorting.
Hey, if you still are down to get it on with Hef, then rock on.......
I think of her as the Hollywood equivalent to a Jenna Jameson pre-plastic surgeries - - - very hot, but knowing she's been plowed repeatedly by a long line of men to further her career is a bit of a turn-off.
Really??!! Come on man, that has to be the loosest (Excuse the pun ) comparison ever...
Besides, I thought this debate was on "Sexiest Actress," not morality. I'm curious FS, would you downgrade Marilyn for similar reasons?
At least for me, sexy is more than skin deep. While I'm not expecting her to be a virgin, I would expect a woman to be a little more discriminating in who she gets horizontal with.
As she died tragically, IMO Marilyn gets looked at through a lense differently than if she lived to a ripe old age and had to face/answer to the scrutiny of her career choices.
Fair enough. You're entitled to your wrong opinion.
I'd like to think this day & age that we can lift this barrier between men and women. A man sleeps around, nobody thinks twice. A woman does the same, and it's nothing but judgement from some folks. Either way, if Charlize chose to "sleep her way up," it worked for her. That certainly doesn't make her any less attractive to me, but you & I see things a bit differently. And, that's ok.
With Marilyn though, how could you look at her through a different lens? She did the same thing you're bashing Charlize for. And, she lived/ died a junkie to boot. But, I still wouldn't cast judgement for that either. I'm sure she had her demons.
You assume I'm giving props to any and every guy who has a long list of conquests, as well. Maybe if they were banging 9s and 10s all the time, sure. But if they're sleeping with some pretty haggard looking women, and you know the purpose of this was to advance their careers, do you still hold them in the same esteem as a Derek Jeter or Justin Timberlake? I would think not.
And let's paint it more personally. If you had a daughter who was sleeping her way to the top, would you be OK with that?
Or how about this. Would you be OK if your good girl of a daughter started to date a guy that has a reputation for sleeping around? Remember, you yourself stated that "nobody thinks twice" about guys like this. So you wouldn't have any qualms whatsoever about your daughter in such a relationship?
Damn...this thread drifted a bit, huh?!
To answer your question FS, when my daughter is old enough to make those choices for herself, I hope that she makes them responsibly. I hope that she respects herself and her body. I don't think it's logical to associate a number with that idea. With that in mind, I don't believe any of us are in a position to judge somebody like Charlize, on the claim that she "slept her way up." I mean, how do you know she did that? You heard something? Maybe she likes a little variety. Nothing wrong with that, as long as she's not hurting anyone else. Live and let live, man.
I digress. My daughter will not be allowed to date until she's 38. She'll wear a pilgrim dress, collect cats, and recite Harry Potter books. Only then will she be free from my judgement...
