"Everyone was so worried about who was going to want to see Black Swan. I remember them being like, 'How do you get guys to a ballet movie? How do you get girls to a thriller?' And the answer is a lesbian scene. Everyone wants to see that."—Natalie Portman.
Um. I don't even know where to begin with that.
I love the embedded heterocentrism in the gender essentialism—because of course the embedded qualifier is how to get straight guys to a ballet movie. Give 'em a little lesbo action! Between two straight ladies! Ugh.
And since when don't women like thrillers...? Every woman I know, irrespective of her sexual orientation, likes good thrillers, and it doesn't take Dykesploitation Cinema to get us to the theater.
