Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show

Jessica showed up on Friday night at The Tonight Show for a interview with Jimmy Fallon, as part of the Molly’s Game promotion.

Jimmy Fallon always shows up some game but in this case they put up a video showing the sexism behind the casting calls.

In a short video, Jessica showed up for a casting call in which she was reading for the role of “Angela.” Her lines were simple: “Hi, my name’s Angela. It’s nice to meet you.” She read her line to camera and immediately received direction from the casting director (Fallon). “That was great. Can you do that again, but … hot?”, being repeated over and over asking to be more hot, more sexy, more wonder woman, until the end of her audition. She was followed by a male actor, who simply read the line, “Hi, my name is Mike.” to which Fallon’s casting director applauded and said, “Perfect. No notes!” Watch the video below:

If you follow Jessica for a while, you probably know that she a vocal advocate for equal pay and has spoken out about misogyny in Hollywood. During the interview, she addressed facing the issue in her own career during The Hollywood Reporter’s recent Actress Roundtable, saying, “After Zero Dark Thirty, I was sent a lot of scripts where it was a female protagonist, and they wouldn’t do my deal until they knew who the male actor was because they needed to do his deal first and then see what was left over.

I’m having problems with the program that I use for do the screencaps. After I fixed this, the pictures will be uploaded in our gallery. Follow our twitter be informed when this happens.
