Beanie Feldstein Reacts to 'Booksmart' Being Called the Female Version of 'Superbad'

Beanie Feldstein speaks on stage during the We Are All Leading Ladies panel held during the 2019 Glamour Women of the Year Summit on Sunday (November 10) at Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

The 26-year-old actress was joined at the panel by Pose‘s MJ Rodriguez and GLOW‘s Britney Young.

During the panel, which touched on diversity and inclusivity in the entertainment industry, Beanie responded to how her movie Booksmart was considered the “female version” of the movie Superbad, which actually starred her brother Jonah Hill.

“Why do we have to be a girl version of a boy movie? Why does Bridesmaids have to be the girl Hangover?” Beanie said. “Why is it movies and then girl movies? Books and chick-lit. It’s so old, and I’m over it. That narrative was belittling.”
