“The Grinder” star Rob Lowe stuck his foot in his mouth in a recent interview in which he griped about the objectification of men on TV.
While discussing his new Fox comedy, which has Lowe playing a retired actor, the former “Parks and Recreation” star said that one of the reasons he loves the show is because of its “insightful” looks at the entertainment industry, specifically the way shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” objectify men.
“People go on and on about the objectification of women, and rightly so,” the actor said, “but what about the objectification of men? When was the last time you saw ‘Grey’s Anatomy?'”
But Lowe wasn’t the only star to say something dumb this week. Matt Damon told The Guardian that gay actors would be better off staying closeted, Lena Dunham told Re/Code that online criticism was like an abusive relationship and Marion Cotillard told a french magazine that feminism create separation, not equality.
So should we be more forgiving of actors who say dumb things in interviews? Or should actors make more of an effort to say fewer dumb things? Watch the latest Wrap Trends for more!
