Mayim Bialik Faces Backlash For Op-Ed Piece
Mayim Bialik has come under fire for her latest op-ed piece that appeared in The New York Times over the weekend.
In case you missed it, The Big Bang Theory actress said that she’s experienced the upside of “not being a perfect ten.”
In her article, “Being a Feminist in Harvey Weinstein’s World”, Mayim says that since she has no desire to diet, get plastic surgery, or hire a personal trainer; she hasn’t had to deal with guys inviting her to meetings in their hotel rooms.
“Those of us in Hollywood who don’t represent an impossible standard of beauty have the ‘luxury’ of being overlooked and, in many cases, ignored by men in power unless we can make them money.”
Mayim has since responded to the controversy. After saying that people took her words out of context, she added, “It’s so sad how vicious people are being when I basically live to make things better for women.”
Being told my @NYTimes piece resonated w/ so many. Also see some have taken my words out of the context of the Hollywood machine. See below: pic.twitter.com/0NmxtAF1vP
