The panty-line thing shouldn't be a big deal. I think we should just all agree that panty lines are OK. Because the thong thing is... just uncomfortable.
From a male perspective, you don't think about how much outward pressure and importance you put on how women look.
My general sensibility is most certainly comedic. But when I signed with my manager, he said, 'I think you could do dramatic stuff as well.' So, rather than making the choice to do it, I sort of agreed and deferred. By no means does it feel close to home, but I was willing to explore it.
The pressure is on the women to be particularly small, and then not only that, the whole package. It's extreme.
