‘Beautiful’ is not a Personality

Funny People Poster

Just had to stop and take a picture of this awful poster (above) for the film Funny People, and the wonderful graffiti that some admirable soul took the time to scribble on it (below).

Women Have Personalities Too!

I don’t think anyone would seriously  stop and think “Hmm that particular character obviously  has a beautiful personality, with a warm heart and a kind soul!” The message is clear; If you’re a woman,  it’s all about ‘appearing’ rather than ‘doing’ or ‘being’.

Interesting how different it is from this poster for the same film (aimed at an American audience, maybe?). Why was the other female actress omitted from our version? Couldn’t they think of a suitable ‘personality’ to give her?!
