Jessica Chastain & Lena Dunham Slam Bill O'Reilly at Power of Women Event

Jessica Chastain and Lena Dunham hit the carpet while attending Variety’s Power of Women event on Friday morning (April 21) at Cipriani Midtown in New York City.

The ladies both spoke at the event and took time to slam Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, who was just fired from The O’Reilly Factor amid claims of sexual harassment.

Lena spoke to honor Gretchen Carlson, who was the first woman at Fox News to speak out against sexual harassment at the company.

“I’m in the very privileged position to be able to say whatever the f—k I want most of the time,” Lena said (via Variety). “But when you work in a corporate infrastructure the challenge of coming out about sexual harassment is so massive. And to see a woman who surmounted that and bravely made space for other women to do the same is deeply inspired.”

“We also should’ve known a few years ago about Bill O’Reilly when he confused a loofah with a falafel. So this isn’t fresh info,” she added.

Jessica decided not to refer to Bill by his name during her speech.

“Most recently women said ‘No’ to a certain Fox News anchor,” she said. “After years of sexual assault accusations and settlements were unearthed, women’s rights groups called for the advertisers to pull their support from the show and companies listened. And so did Fox. As a result, the 8 o’clock news hour will be known as simply ‘The Factor.’ This is our collective power in action.”

Other women in attendance included Salma Hayek, Audra McDonald, Danielle Brooks, Chelsea Clinton, Gayle King, Ashley Graham, Vanessa Bayer, and Tina Knowles.

FYI: Jessica is wearing a Carolina Herrera dress and Stella Luna shoes. Ashley is wearing a Fleur du Mal corset and Schutz shoes.

Gillian Jacobs & Paul Rust Debut Trailer For 'Love' Season Two - Watch Here!

Love is making its second season return on Friday (March 10) on Netflix!

In season two, “Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus (Paul Rust) face commitment and all that comes with it as they attempt to bring order to their chaotic lives.”

“I think that Mickey has had this insight about herself and had a very positive experience at a 12-step meeting [at the end of Season 1], but then life gets in the way,” Gillian told IndieWire about season two. “She’s feeling very sure and very certain when she’s by herself, and then I think when she is with Gus, it makes her feel more conflicted.”

“I think she’s a person who still thinks she can kind of do everything on her own terms,” Gillian added. “I think we start this season with her thinking that the rules that other people are following do not apply to her and that causes some problems, but I also feel like there’s undeniable chemistry between Gus and Mickey and she’s following that.”

Pictured: Gillian and Paul joining co-creator Judd Apatow and moderator Vanessa Bayer at a special Netflix screening of Love at 92nd Street Y on Monday (March 6) in New York City.


‘LOVE’ Season Two | Official Trailer
