Emma Stone, Jennifer Aniston Talk Gender Equality On ‘SNL’ – WATCH VIDEO
Emma Stone, Jennifer Aniston, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon appeared in a “SNL” sketch about gender equality for actresses in Hollywood. While Aniston, Stone, and Jones played themselves, McKinnon portrayed a (fictional) old-time actress named Debette Goldry, who starred in “over 350 feature films” and seemingly was willing to degrade herself for men. Watch the “Saturday Night Live” video below.
After Aniston told Goldry that she was “dying to meet” her, the older actress replied, “And I have been slowly dying.” Goldry then crossed her fingers and said with hope, “In memoriam Oscars 2017.” The basic gist of the sketch was that while the other women pointed out the various ways there’s gender inequality in Hollywood, Goldry appeared to justify it. When Jones pointed out the difference in pay, the old actress offered, “But of course we’re paid less than men, they’re men. They’re doing all the hard work. We’re just lying there on a train track, waiting to get run over.”
Goldry also shared to the horror of the other women, “Back in those days, actresses were actually part of the props budget.” She went on to explain that when she wasn’t filming, “I used to have to sit on a little table next to masking tape that was said, ‘woman.'” Goldry also talked about how the studio sent her to sing happy birthday to FDR and then she performed a sex act on him. There were also outrageous anecdotes about auditions and what actresses did before there was Botox.
