Gwyneth Paltrow Talks Casting Couch Experience
Here’s what the the 38-year-old actress shared with the mag about trading sexual favors for career advancement:
Have you ever had a casting-couch experience? Yup. When I was just starting out, someone suggested that we finish a meeting in the bedroom. I left. I was pretty shocked. I could see how someone who didn’t know better might worry, “My career will be ruined if I don’t give this guy a blow job!”
How do you feel about the kinds of roles available to women today? Kind of dejected. There’s a lot that’s okay, but there’s little that’s really good, especially for someone my age. Sometimes you find out that something you really liked is going to someone 10 years younger. I find it heartening that Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock have been able to find and create amazing projects.
