Not allowed to comment on that I don't have an opinion. I'm not the team blossom or not Tim lost and I'm not sure on what we're losing our audience here because most of them were. Barely born on blossom cannot ignore from the big bank three I don't know who she plays on big mentally what's her name on Big Bang theory. Can someone figures out she plays do his girlfriend wife something. Amy OK there you go is aiming for our own Big Bang theory there ego he does nor is any from there that's right that is the blossoms are. She wrote an op Ed for the New York Times and she set I enter the Hollywood machine 1986 is a prominent nose awkward geeky Jerusalem bureau basically describe your version percent today backed and we didn't have been under social meet your reality TV I didn't need any of that to understand that I didn't look or act like other girls in my industry. And that I was immersing myself in a business that rewarded physical beauty. And sex appeal above all else she says nothing has been a harsh reminder that I work in an industry that profiles are sorry the profits. And exploitation of women and not just on screen. The new accusations artery once seen as a serial sexual salts are particularly aspiring young actresses though I am shocked and disgusted by the scope of his alleged. Predation they say that word jerk predator and I learned the fact that he may have been you know. Our vision of power does not surprise me in the least. I've always had an odd couple relationship but being employed an industry that profits on the objective objective vacation of women. Though pressure to deal like the pretty girls started long before in Hollywood I quickly learned even as a preteen actors they young girls. With Joseph Eisen pouting lips who spoke in a high register or favored paroles by the powerful men. Who made those decisions officials abortions anything too controversial Reggie same beautiful girls you know plus. You don't have an opinion is he said something controversial real dumb ass ID number I don't I'm not seeing everybody shot it passage of what I would do is be quiet. Amanda she offended you shouldn't offend me it doesn't matter you've been to do it doesn't matter Aaron. Shot yet. Today's issue on to say that she was constantly tease about. Her. Appearance. Batter knows about her Chan and she started. Obsessing over the thought of having a nose job and a chin job. And she said she always make conservative choices he as a young cash actress largely informed by my first generation American parents who were highly skeptical of the industry in general. She said she evict eventually left the business when she was nineteen to pursue pursue a doctorate in neuroscience at the University of California Los Angeles is ours and are assigned to and that's why achieved so good on big renteria is so. What's her name Amy. That's characters as a nontraditional Q when I came back to an industry that had me audition for the front be friends. But I eventually landed a role that has earned me four Emmy nominations it is a surprise. That I play in a drive and a sock were late bloomer. Or is it a surprise and she basically goes on to say if you don't wanna you know get molest and stuff still be sexy. So you can regressive for yourself. Why. I think that's not a part what you read everything else and you just paraphrase that because I don't know why I'm probably not the party paraphrase the good friends up the load the top part of that. Not the bottom part of that somewhere. You know Michael's gonna work and got their feet and end. Again. She says I've yet to it's a she says and yet I've also expressed the upside of not being a perfect ten this is you know. I'm not saying I'm offended last understand this is you know the part that people tweeted. As a proud feminist that little desire to die get plastic surgery or higher personal trainer I have almost no personal experience that men asking me to meetings in their hotel rooms. Those of us in Hollywood who don't represent an impossible standard of beauty had the luxury of being overlooked and in many cases ignored by many empower unless we can make the money. I still make choices every day's a 41 year old actress that I think of as self protecting and wise I decided that my sexual assault is that's reserved for private situations. With those I am most intimate way I dress modestly I don't act flirtatious thing with men as a policy and entirely aware that these types of choices. Might you oppressive to many young feminist women should be able to Wear whatever they want they should be able to flirt however they want. With whomever they want. Why are we the ones who have to police our behavior and a perfect world women should be free to act or they want but our world is a perfect nothing absolutely nothing excuses man from assaulting. Or abusing women but we can't be naive about the culture we live. Lago. Benefited some didn't belong. And are also a lot of zone as the Los some people liked it I saw some people really liked it. There summit went back and forth and women of rule I didn't like it. As some legends some didn't. I don't have an opinion. All you shouldn't. We shouldn't. You have an opinion about the Al Michaels controversy filed. I can't believe you would even think to say that. I like that tweet that says you know I read it it's even worse than I would on our worst week in Harvey Weinstein. And they are up fourteen points poof. Man waiting to corral my goes you edgy son of a businessman.
