On Balance, 2016 Was A Pretty Garbage Year For Mental Health
Huffington Post - about 2 months
This year was pretty terrible in a lot of ways. And, sadly, the attitudes surrounding mental health were no exception. The last 52 weeks brought a lot of disappointing instances of stigma and discrimination, from presidential candidates slinging mental health terms as insults to the media wrongly associating mental illness with violence. These public affronts can be remarkably damaging on the whole. Research shows people with psychological health issues often don’t seek professional help due to fear of judgment or shame.  What's more, unprecedented anxiety due to current events also meant that mental health itself was at risk for many. A report conducted by the American Psychological Association found that the majority of Americans said they felt that the 2016 election was somewhat or a significant source of stress. And acts of terror like the mass shooting at an LGBTQ club in Orlando had the potential to result in instances of vicarious trauma and psychological health issues. ...

Movie Review: 'Love the Coopers' -- Not
Huffington Post - over 1 year
It is always good to see Diane Keaton in a film and executive producing at that, but Love the Coopers simply misses. A yearning for saccharin sweetness permeates. Good raw, honest relationships could make a film like this work, but this is not what Love the Coopers is about. This is a pastiche of stories of a family of four generations returning home for a Christmas dinner while you wonder, "When's dessert?" This is a film with many fine actors, but the writing and story by Steven Rogers are the problem. Alan Arkin as Keaton's father is his usual greatness who is in love with a waitress, Amanda Seyfried who is her competent and beautiful self. John Goodman is Keaton's husband who is still smitten with Keaton who wants a divorce after forty years. Ed Helms is unhappily married to Alex Borstein (Getting On) whose part is too small and ill-conceived for her fine talents. Marisa Tomei is Keaton's sister who has been in conflict with her feelings for Keaton which causes Tomei to steal jewelr ...

Sharon Stone Says The Gender Pay Gap Is Like 'Economic Blackmail'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The gender pay gap affects all women -- even high-profile actresses like Sharon Stone.  At a Nov. 6 Funkshion Fashion Week event in Miami, the actress spoke with People.com about how she's personally been impacted by the wage gap and why the issue is so important for all women.  "After 'Basic Instinct,' no one wanted to pay me," Stone said. "I remember sitting in my kitchen with my manager and just crying and saying I'm not going to work until I get paid," later adding that she "still got paid so much less than any men."  The 57-year-old is not alone in her experience, both in Hollywood and outside of it. In recent months, A-list actresses such as Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and Amanda Seyfried have all spoken up about getting paid less than their male co-workers.  Stone told People.com that the wage gap is not just an issue in Hollywood, but across all industries. She said that change "has to start with regular pay, not just for movie stars, but regular pay for t ...

Toni Collette Calls The Hollywood Pay Gap 'Crazy'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Toni Collette is the latest actress to step forward in condemnation of the film industry's gendered wage gap. In a conversation with HuffPost Live on Tuesday, the "Miss You Already" star joined the likes of Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence and Amanda Seyfried in speaking out against the pay disparity between female and male actors, which, according to Slate, is commonly 40 cents to every dollar.
