When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and the constitutional right to abortion, Hilarie Burton and her husband Jeffrey Dean Morgan were both vocal about their upset. In addition to a picture of him wearing a “Pro Roe 1973” shirt, Morgan said, “I got OPINIONS. You don’t like em? Piss off. Go follow someone else. I’m in a block n delete kinda mood today.”
In response to all of the questions and drama around Bassett, Olivia Rodrigo and Sabrina Carpenter surrounding the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Bassett had a lot to say. “[Everyone] is asking me about Sabrina and Olivia. Why don’t we focus on these women for who they are? Let’s focus on the art that they’re making and how great they are instead of their relationship to a boy.”
After one critic asked him how he felt about working with a lot of women in what “was supposed to be a man’s movie,” while at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015 while promoting Mad Max: Fury Road, Tom Hardy immediately put an end to it. He said that he never doubted his role and that the movie was empowering.
Back in 2015, Kelsey Grammer said that he was definitely a feminist and always has been. “I think that feminism includes just being proud and comfortable in your skin as a woman and a man being comfortable in his skin. That’s where I live with it. I’m a huge supporter of women.”
Chris Evans said that he learned the importance of listening to women’s stories and becoming more knowledgeable as a result of the #MeToo movement. “The hardest thing to reconcile is that just because you have good intentions, doesn’t mean it’s your time to have a voice,” Evans said.
Matt McGorry feels strongly about raising awareness amongst men about marginalized voices. “As I’ve learned, I don’t need to be talking to women about feminism. But I do need to talk to men about it — and I’ve been doing that quite aggressively, much to the chagrin of my guy friends.”
Kutcher is a long-time human rights activist and supporter of women’s rights. “I think there’s so much that’s not said about sex in our country, even from an educational level. “The one thing they teach about is how to get pregnant or how to not get pregnant, but they don’t really talk about sex as a point of pleasure for women. to create a more female lead that’s empowered with her own sexuality is a powerful thing.”
Gosling dished about his take on feminism during a 2016 interview. “I think women are better than men. They are stronger, more evolved. You can tell especially when you have daughters and you see their early stages, they are just leaps and bounds beyond boys immediately.”
Prince Harry has openly discussed the disadvantages that women and girls face. “There are way too many obstacles between girls and the opportunities they deserve. So many countries are ailing to protect the opportunities of young women and girls in the way they do for boys. I believe that it is vitally important for men like me to acknowledge this as loudly and openly as role models do, like President Bhandari, the U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, and activists like Malala. It cannot just be women who speak up for girls.”
