Simon Pegg Calls Mission Impossible‘s Advertising Out On Sexism, Liberal Use of Butt Pose
Impossible Missions Fanny.
Speaking to USA Today, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation actor Simon Pegg called the film’s advertisements out on sexualizing one of the movie’s few female characters:
When the posters came out, it was me in a jacket, Tom [Cruise] in a jacket, Jeremy [Renner] in a jacket, Ving [Rhames] in a jacket and Rebecca [Ferguson] in leather with her [butt] sticking out. It was like, ‘No, don’t do that.’ We’re doing something good here. Trying to, at least.
You can head over to Rope of Silicon to see the stark contrast between how Ferguson is depicted in the film’s advertising, and how her (all male) co-stars are portrayed.
