Did Mary Ann and Ginger make razors from coconuts?
When Tom Hanks was rescued from a deserted Island in Cast Away, he had long, matted hair and was as manscaped as a junkyard dog. But what if the film starred a woman? Could you imagine Jennifer Lawrence with hairy armpits and stubbly legs walking on a deserted island screaming at a volleyball? It would never happen. Women on TV and in films always manage to find a way to shave their armpits and legs, even in the most desperate situations.
The following video by BuzzFeed points out the hilariously unrealistic standards of beauty that female characters must adhere to, even at the expense of the film’s realism or believability.
