Overall, it appears that leading men are generally less likely to work with female directors in their peak salary years. Mark Wahlberg hasn’t acted in a film with a woman director since Penny Marshall gave him his first film role in 1994’s Renaissance Man. Nicolas Cage hasn’t acted in a film directed by a woman since Martha Coolidge gave him his first lead role in 1983’s low-budget Valley Girl. Russell Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr., Adam Sandler, Denzel Washington, and Bruce Willis have not acted in a film directed by a woman in over two decades.
I don’t know if anyone outside of Croatia knows this because I haven’t seen any articles about it in foreign media, but Jamie Foxx is currently in Dubrovnik and yesterday evening he got verbally attacked in a racial-hate attack while having dinner in a restaurant. He was literally just sitting there, trying out local wines and cuisine, when those two racists attacked him. They were throwing racial slurs and God knows what else at him, before being thrown out by the staff of the restaurant. He posted about it in his Instagram story, including some videos of them he captured and his own impression of what has happened. I’m just disgusted beyond words and very much ashamed. Some media outlets are saying that the guys were drunk, but that should not be used as an excuse for what they did and said. They are an embarrassment to our country. This shouldn’t have happened. And they’ll most likely just get away with it. A fucking disgrace!!!!
