Quote of the Day

I have been hearing Marvel male superheroes complain about their suits for years. And I got into my suit, and I was wearing it, working in it, doing my thing, and I was like, 'It's just not that bad. I just— Do I have the most comfortable suit in the MCU? Or— [holds up finger as if she's having a eureka moment] —have men not had the life experience— [picks up her foot, which is clad in a high-heeled shoe, and holds it up for the camera] —of being uncomfortable for the sake of looking good? [drops foot] And they're just like, 'What is this? This sucks! Why are we—? Why? Why do I have to go through this?' Whereas a woman's like, 'I don't know. This is like normal, you know? I wear heels to work; I'm uncomfortable all day.' You get used to it. You tune it out.
