We’re the first generation to do it
Elizabeth Banks covers Allure magazine
Elizabeth Banks is showing us again what a talented actress she is and what a smart woman she is. The 38-year-old actress covers Allure magazine and she did a interview that’s pretty interesting.
Among others, she talked about earning more money than her husband. “Well, we’re the first generation to do it. And it’s very ingrained even in our DNA that men are hunter-gatherers who are meant to go off and provide. And that we are really meant to stay at home and have kids…. Let’s be honest. Men love a second income. It gets them their boat and their vacations. They want their wives to work”, she said. The woman is very realistic.
And her quote about sexism in Hollywood is also so right. “When you’re young in this business, you don’t realize it, but there are no superhero movies starring women! I was very idealistic. And so it was an adjustment knowing I was going into a movie and would be working just as hard as the male actors, and in some cases feeling I was more talented than they were—and knowing I was making a fraction of their salary. And knowing also that this is my reality going forward”, she said.
It takes you years to become so mature, but thanks God she has become a smart mature woman.
