    I was talking about how Hollywood views people, not how I view them. Would guys like Chris Hemsworth have became a leading man if it wasn't because they were attractive? Probably not.

    this sounds like a statement of your opinion:

    Really? I didn't realize the two of you were such close personal friends that you'd know that. I'm sure she'd much rather be in movies no one's ever heard of and make a few grand than be in something big and make millions.

    So?

    Again, what exactly do you find so hard to believe about the idea that an actress would exploit her personal life for publicity and the chance at more/better roles? I mean, it's not like hundreds of other celebrities have been doing that exact thing for decades.

    Would you agree Chris Hemsworth is popular because of his looks? The great thing about hiring him for parts like Thor is that he looks the part, but can also interest women into watching the movie when they otherwise wouldn't.

    Women like Ellen Page really can't fill the role of a leading woman. Her body looks underdeveloped, she is really tiny, and just all around doesn't have the presence for it. Add to that her body language is usually off putting in one way or another and she doesn't work at all for any major part. However, yes, she is odd. Look at the parts she picks and tell me that isn't weird. I could tell she was weird when I saw her eight years ago in that movie where she played that pregnant teen.

    She picked an alright role in Inception, but it was more of a means for the lead to explain his thought processes and the world surrounding them. I wanted more from her character, but I thought it was enjoyable.

    I also thought she looked like plenty of grad students or recent hires. I thought she looked my age, and she is.

    Good to see the hate has evolved to simple ad hominems against Ellen Page. If she came out as a Conservative in Librul Hollywood some of you would be talking about how she's as hot as a Carolina Reaper and a threat to the left as she's a strong, principled young woman who doesn't need approval to wipe her butt.

    Hollywood caters to the market. As long as people take the attitude, which you seem to, that a women's value is determined solely by her level of physical attractiveness or how closely she matches the image of the "perfect" female body they will cater to it. The range allowed men in Hollywood with regard to their physical attractiveness is vastly different then what women are allowed. So I don't blame Hollywood, I blame the consumer.

    Body characteristics did not stop Natalie Portman from having big roles. She's very similar

    Do you relate all actors character roles to their true character?

    Actress plays quirky character = actress is "weird." You can't fathom how unbelievably ridiculous that sounds.

    I could tell Christian Bale was a homicidal maniac after seeing that movie where he played a homicidal maniac!
