Well, this is awkward… for GQ anyway. One of their journalists made the mistake of implying that, in her new movie Third Person, Olivia Wilde is way too sexy to also play an intelligent writer. Or, to quote Tom Carson exactly:
She’s supposed to be a writer too, but your belief in that won’t outlast Wilde scampering naked through hotel corridors once Neeson playfully locks her out of his room. With that tush, who’d need to be literate? Who’d want to?
Yikes. Wilde wasn’t feelin’ it, and replied to a tweet sent out by feminist blog and news source Jezebel:
HA. Kiss my smart ass, GQ.
GQ has since apologized, tweeting the following message:
We regret that boneheaded joke in Tom Carson’s “Third Person” review. So does he.“
Apologies sure are nice, but it’d be even nicer to live in a world where women were treated like, you know, actual people.
