“Just the fact that I’m a woman has a lot of negativity about that. It’s much more acceptable for a man to be brusque and rude, and they think it’s charming. I mean, Jon Hamm is the most despicable character on television, but because he’s handsome and a guy, [the response is] ‘Oh, he’s so wonderful.’ If a woman did the same thing, she’d be short of being a prostitute. I’m just saying, the cliches and the standards for woman and men on television and in movies are so weird.”
