    I liked what Julianne Moore was saying about the double standards men and women face in Hollywood. At the same time, a part of me can’t really stand her. That mostly has to do with her being in “The Kids Are All Right”. That movie had VERY negative homosexual tropes. In this case bad lesbian tropes.
