Watch a supercut showing why red carpet coverage should be ashamed of itself.

If you had access to some of the most compelling women of our time, you'd think you wouldn't waste it with pointless questions. Then again...

Interviewers could ask any of these women about current events, hobbies, or, you know, about the movies they're in. But they don't.

Actresses often get their dresses for free for the mutual publicity, but it's not all about "who they're wearing" (which, by the way is a really strangely sexual way to ask which fashion label made their dress). Those outfits parading on the red carpet are on some pretty stellar ladies, not hangers.


Actresses are hardly ever asked about their motivations behind their roles, but I bet we could make a supercut of male actors being asked just that question.

Why don't more people ask Viola Davis about her mother, who was a civil rights activist, or Anne Hathaway about her LGBT activism, or Cate Blanchett about anything but "who she's wearing"? I'm pretty sure any question you ask her would be interesting because Cate Blanchett is the best. But if you'd like me to be specific, you could ask her about feminism, because she's been outspoken about that before.

And why don't they ask the men who they're wearing?

When Jonathan Irons was 16, he was put on trial for burglary and assault with a weapon. According to CBS Sports, Irons was tried as adult, and an all-white jury found him guilty—despite there being no witnesses, no fingerprints, no footprints, and no DNA proving his guilt.

Irons began his 50-year sentence in a Missouri state prison in 1998. Now, 22 years later, he's a free man, largely thanks to the tireless efforts of a WNBA superstar.

Maya Moore is arguably the most decorated professional women's basketball player in the U.S. A first-round draft pick in 2011, she's played for the Minnesota Lynx, where she became a six-time WNBA All-Star, a five-time All-WNBA First Team player, a four-time WNBA champion, and the WNBA Most Valuable Player in 2014.

But before the 2019 season, in the peak of her career, Moore decided to take the year off for a different kind of court battle—one that had wrongfully convicted a young man and doomed him to spend most of his life behind bars. Her decision rocked her sport, and there was no guarantee that sacrificing an entire season to fight for criminal justice reform would bear any fruit.
