“One of the worst ways to stop someone from telling sexist jokes is to tell him the joke isn’t funny. He’ll assume that you’re humorless and that he needs to save the good stuff for the right audience. If you really want someone to stop telling sexist jokes, you need to tell him, “I don’t get it” and then step back as he tries not to say, “It’s funny because women are stupid.” —If This Isn’t From a Book, It Should Be (via gaircyrch)

- Do you have any life tips?
- I've done everything wrong so there's really no explanation as to why I'm still around. I work with a lot of new directors – half the time they are not that great but you never know until you try. I've taken movies that people told me I shouldn't, I've taken years off to have children, I've been outspoken politically, and here I am. So I'm the last person you should ask. I'm here because all my plans failed.
