As if I needed another reason to love Charlize.  This photo was taken yesterday at the world AIDS conference. 

Notice the button she's holding up that reads, "sex work is work".  *sigh*

The silver lining to the Sony hacks has been we finally have written proof of the wage gap in Hollywood.

Charlize Theron was able to negotiate a pay raise so that she matched her male co-star Chris Hemsworth's $10M pay day for the upcoming film The Huntsman (internal Sony emails confirmed she was making considerably less and I would have loved to hear Charlize discuss this with Sean Penn).

Now I know it's for a movie...but still it's super fucking hot.  Hair is such a sexual cue for women and when we shave it off it's like saying f*ck you I'm not playing the game (and you'd still f*ck me).  

Betty and I were talking last night about why she shaved her head in the 70's (after 2 hours of live sex questions for "In Bed with Betty & Carlin" and a bottle of wine).  She shaved her head to protect herself.  There were so many political assassinations: JFK, RFK, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X - then Anne Koedt received several death threats when she published The Myth of the Vaginal Orgasm.  The "out" feminists became a target too.

It freaked Betty out so she decided to go androgynous.  It's still my favorite Betty look:
