I'm French , Carrie . I haven't read the book but just those big controversial quotes that she has explained later on in that interview.
And she has been a poor mother to her son . She said she was too young and to focused on her career to be a "proper" mother . She also said she didn't have any maternal instincts at all and said sometimes she wished that she'd given birth to a dog instead of a human...Ouch ! Needless to say , she didn't have a great relationship with her son and the 2 of them were estranged for years . However , they reconciled a few years ago , and now her son comes to visit her as often as possible.
Damn! Not every mother has the maternal instinct, sorry to say. She seems like a complex woman.
Well you know she's speaking at a distance and conflating incidents of her own flirtations with actual sexual assaults she seems oblivious to so her comments don't carry much weight and can be ignored but .........
But in general that much of a batsh it wtf comment is right too and a little pushback is needed. I mean it's ridiculous what people did to Damon (heck Neeson too!), Streep, Tarantino and Franco, and Ansari, or Keillor - not a celebrity really so who cares etc. - it is hypocritical and ridiculous but that doesn't mean METOO is obviously, there's good there too - much good.
But a certain backbone is needed though and sometimes it comes from clueless aging starlets like Bardot and you never know when the tide starts to turn or why. Alec Baldwin was right, and I think Franco is a nominee this year, and I think Chalamet maybe helped his career in some ways but can say goodbye to an Oscar this year (because some older Academy males actually do like and respect Woody too despite what you've read about "nobody" liking him Tim).........for every action, a reaction, some just, some not, and so it goes.
Totally agree, she has a point.
She isn't generalizating the issue. Just saying that several women made flirtations, uses sex, and now are denouncing abuses. Many A actresses in Hollywood are lying and taking adventages. So many nobodies will lie or exagerated too much this issue.
And maybe in the future, will not be sex/make love scenes, or even kisses because an actress could demand actors, directors, producers and studios 4 that.
