Scarlett Johansson: Another celebrity who needs to STFU
I’ve ranted about Gwyneth. (Trust me on this because I can’t find the link. Related: Why does the search function on Tumblr suck so much?)
I hate to criticize a woman who had a baby three minutes ago, but Scarlett, when it comes to being a working mother, can you please SHUT UP?
"It seems so stressful to not be able to spend time with your family because you’re constantly chasing the tail of your own success. There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theater. I want to be able to have it all … Selfishly."
Okay. Two things:
1. Is there a world, Scarlett, where you can get paid MILLIONS of dollars to make ONE movie and call that “balance”? I’m pretty sure there is. By the way, I imagine that making a movie IS really stressful when you have young children. Those are long, long, long days for weeks on end. But please. To compare that to the experience of even a relatively affluent working woman — not to mention a middle class one — is insane.
2. Famous women of he world: please, please, please, PLEASE stop apologizing for wanting to have both a career and kids. Men do not do this. Ever. Brad Pitt does not say that he “selfishly” wants to keep making movies while have 1,000 children. Mark Wahlberg has three young children. I’m too lazy to do a real search but I’m wiling to bet he’s never been quoted saying anything about feeling selfish or guilty for wanting to “have it all” (a phrase that I loathe).
I really hope I left my wallet at my office
I *wish* I had not done that, but given that I don’t know where it is at the moment I’m really hoping it’s sitting on my desk.
Ugh, ugh, ugh.
When I have too much on my brain I do dumb shit …
