It’s meant to inspire reporters to ask creative questions on the red carpet.”
The Representation Project is claiming that men are being asked more ‘creative questions when approached by reporters for big Hollywood events than their female counterparts are being asked. An initiative called the #AskHerMore project is trying to spur reporters to ask more stylish questions than being questioned about clothing and accessories.
Jennifer Garner recently spoke out about how her and her husband Ben Affleck took notes on different experiences. Garner was at Elle Women of Hollywood this last October while ben was doing press for ‘Gone Girl.’
“We got home at night and we compared notes,” she explained. “And I told him every single person who interviewed me, I mean every single one… asked me, ‘How do you balance work and family?’ And he said the only thing that people asked him repeatedly was about the tits on the ‘Blurred Lines’ girl [model Emily Ratajkowski, his co-star in ‘Gone Girl’].”
Reese Witherspoon has also been supporting the new #AskHerMore movement. The ‘Wild’ actress recently spoke out about what type of questions she would like to be asked during the Oscars on Sunday.
“This movement #AskHerMore… have you heard of it? It’s meant to inspire reporters to ask creative questions on the red carpet,” the Oscar nominee captioned her pic of questions on Instagram. “I love the Oscars AND fashion like many of you – and am excited to share #WhoAmIWearing later tonight. (not yet!!) But I’d also love to answer some of these Qs… And hear your suggestions?! (Share em below!) There are so many amazing, talented nominees this year! Let’s hear their stories! Spread the word.”
“It’s hard being a woman in Hollywood or in any industry,” said Witherspoon.
E! presenter Ryan Seacrest was heard to be taking the movement seriously by asking as many females serious questions as he came upon them, but a few were still skeptical. Emma Cullen responded on twitter by posting, “Red carpet is only like 30 mins in, but it appears Ryan Seacrest has actually almost taken the #AskHerMore movement seriously….well for now.”
