Looking at the Relationship Between Women and Hollywood : The Roles That Hollywood Gives Women

In Dutka's excellent article, Gordon Crawford of Capital Research states that it was Julia Roberts who carried "Pretty Woman" and not Richard Gere. With this statement, Crawford is questioning what's all this ruckus about women in Hollywood not being chosen to carry a major film? Well, Gordy dear, Roberts was cast as a hooker--one of the favorite Hollywood roles--so it doesn't count in my book.

Streep is correct: ". . . it stinks." So I plan to stop attending the repetitious, uninspiring films of the male stars named in the article.
