She discussed the significance of gender parity, “I am going to use my platform to say right now that in the next two years, everything that I produce and I am making a vow and it’s going to be tough to make sure that everything that I produce, that it’s fifty percent women.”
In other news, speculation on Twitter sparked between actresses Chrissy Metz and Alison Brie. Metz was allegedly heard calling Brie “such a b****” on Facebook Live’s red carpet pre-show. Metz of course, denies these allegations. See video below:
The “This Is Us” star was asked to help introduce Brie, who was on the other side of the carpet getting ready to be interviewed.
Once the camera panned to Brie, fans said they heard Metz call her a b****. Metz took to Twitter to deny the remark and said it was “completely fabricated.”
It’s terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated! I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart. https://t.co/IdeN2x2j9q
