Nicole Kidman appeared before the US Congress in her role as UN ambassador and sort of condemned Hollywood for contributing to violence against women by portraying them as weak sex objects. In all fairness, she also said Hollywood was contributing to the solution.

When asked by Republican representative Dana Rohrabacher whether the film industry “played a bad role” in the way it portrayed women, Kidman replied “Probably”, before going on to say that she refused to take roles that portrayed women as weak sex objects. “I can’t be responsible for all of Hollywood, but I can certainly be responsible for my own career.”

Nicole should also blame Hollywood for placing too much emphasis on youth and beauty thereby forcing aging actresses to inject their faces with Botox. I think it would have been a powerful statement if after Nicole said that, she pointed to her waxy, unwrinkled, paralyzed face and shouted, “Look at me! Look at what they’ve done to me! I’m a monster! A monster!”
