If you're one of those Knocked Up audience members whose bullshit-sensing adrenal glands went haywire watching Judd Apatow's blockbuster paean to chubby, jobless, weed-huffing types and the attractive, upwardly mobile women who drop everything to carry their accidentally conceived children to term, then you are not alone, as even the actress called upon to bring such an improbable scenario to life has expressed her own misgivings about taking the role in the current issue of Vanity Fair:
"It was hard for me to love [Apatow's] movie" because it's "a little sexist..."
"[I]t paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as goofy, fun-loving guys."
Knowing now what was then going through the mind of the white-hot actress (one of Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating!) explains much about her subsequent career choices, choosing for her Knocked follow-up woman-written and woman-directed romantic comedy 27 Dresses, the empowering story of some chick who's miserable because the prince from Enchanted proposes to her sister instead of her.
