Jane Fonda adds herself to the list of other actresses who were not amused by Oscar host Seth MacFarlane’s song ‘We Saw Your Boobs’. Read on for all the details.
Seth MacFarlane, 39, continues to get heat for singing the sexist “We Saw Your Boobs” song at the recent Academy Awards. Feminist Jane Fonda, 75 is now speaking out — “Why not list all the penises we’ve seen?” She does have a point!
Jane Fonda Speaks Out On Seth MacFarlane Hosting The Oscars
Jane, who presented the Best Director Award with Michael Douglas, shared her thoughts publicly on Feb.27 with this blog on her website:
“What I really didn’t like was the song and dance number about seeing actresses boobs. I agree with someone who said, if they want to stoop to that, why not list all the penises we’ve seen? Better yet, remember that this is a telecast seen around the world watched by families with their children and to many this is neither appropriate or funny. I also didn’t like the remark made about Quvenzhane and Clooney, or the stuff out of Ted’s mouth and all the comments about what women do to get thin for their dresses. Waaaay too much stuff about women and bodies, as though that’s what defines us.”
Other Actresses Offended By ‘We Saw Your Boobs’
Girls creator and star Lena Dunham took to her Twitter Feb. 26 and wrote, “Ladies: Anne Hathaway is a feminist and she has amazing teeth. Let’s save our bad attitudes for the ones who aren’t advancing the cause.”
Another one of Lena’s tweets included, “Hey ragers. ‘The ones who aren’t advancing the cause’ I mentioned aren’t always, or mostly, women. Case in point: I saw your boobs.”
Just by looking at Charlize Theron‘s expression while watching the performance, you could tell she was not happy. The reason Charlize was mentioned in the ‘boob’ song was because her character in Monster was topless in a rape scene. Not cool!
The Academy Defends The ‘Boob’ Song
In a Feb.28 statement to The Wrap, a spokeswoman for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences defended Oscar host Seth and the show’s producers, saying, “If the Oscars are about anything, they’re about creative freedom. We think the show’s producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, and host Seth MacFarlane did a great job and we hope our worldwide audience found the show entertaining.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Was this the dumbest song ever? Do you think we are overly obsessed with boobs?
