Patricia Arquette has admitted to being "surprised" that her call for wage equality at this year's Academy Awards was criticised.
Arquette called for women to earn equal wages to their male counterparts in the workforce while collecting her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Boyhood.
Arquette responded to her critics during a recent interview with Access Hollywood.
"There's always going to be [haters] and I think people didn't really think of what I was saying clearly and understand and look at the impact," she explained.
The actress continued: "I think I was a little bit [surprised]. I mean, it's crazy that we don't, that women don't have equal pay in America."
Arquette added that it was Boyhood that inspired her to become more passionate on the issue of equality. »

Welcome to the February 25, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: "Playboy" may find itself in hot water over their Terry Richardson issue. Heralded for over five decades for its realistic depictions of female bodies, the men's "lifestyle" mag inspired some condemnation last summer when it was revealed that it hired accused sexual assaulter/photographer Terry Richardson to spearhead its February issue. As the issue prepares to hit stands (Nsfw), a number of tweeters are taking issue with "Playboy's" decision to showcase Richardson's work: brb, just threw up in my mouth after looking at the pix from The Issue Of Playboy Shot Entirely By Terry Richardson http://t.co/s2ymrgWmw0 — meg clark ??•?•??

Let's just say, Stacey Dash didn't have the same reaction to Patricia Arquette's Oscars speech as did, say, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez. "I was appalled. I couldn't believe it," Dash said on this morning's Fox and Friends in response to what was one of the most memorable lines of the night, Arquette's much-applauded remark that "it is our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America." What, no good? "First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history," Dash said. "In 1963, Kennedy passed an equal pay law. It's still in effect. I didn't get the memo that I didn't have »
The Fox News correspondent has taken issue with Patricia Arquette's Oscar acceptance speech, where the "Boyhood" actress declared that women have long fought for "everybody else's equal rights," and that it's "our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America."
"I was appalled. I could not believe it," Stacey said on "Fox & Friends" on Monday, of Patricia's applause-earning speech. "First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do ...

Welcome to a special Oscars edition of Outrage Watch, where we break down all the things folks are peeved about from last night's big show. Top story? Let the Patricia Arquette backlash begin. Did you catch the Best Supporting Actress winner's acceptance speech? Meryl Streep loved it! American was on her side, mostly. And then...she went backstage. “The truth is, even though we sort of feel like we have equal rights in America, right under the surface, there are huge issues that are applied that really do affect women," said the Best Supporting Actress winner to the assembled press corps. "And it’s time for all the women in America and all the men that love women, and all the gay people, and all the people of color that we’ve all fought for to fight for us now.” Hmm...maybe she just got caught up in the moment? »

"To every woman who gave birth to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation," she said, "we have fought for everybody else's equal rights. It's our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America."
Arquette expanded on her thoughts after the telecast by insisting that it is "inexcusable" that there aren't "equal rights for women in America".
Dash, who is now a Fox News pundit, accused Arquette of being ignorant on the topic during an appearance on Fox & Friends today (February 23).

Fox News contributor Stacey Dash didn’t take kindly to Oscar winner Patricia Arquette demanding wage equality for women while accepting her first Oscar on Sunday. “I was appalled. I could not believe it,” Dash, a former actress, said on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning. “First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history. In 1963, Kennedy passed an equal pay wall. It’s still in effect. I didn’t get the memo that I didn’t have any rights.” Also Read: ‘Boyhood’ Oscar Winner Patricia Arquette Speaks Out More on Women’s Rights Backstage: ‘There Are Huge Issues at Play’ Arquette, »

Stacey Dash has learned the hard way that, when in doubt, leave the humor out. The co-host of Fox News' Outnumbered took to Facebook today to clarify the remarks she made last week on the show about "good girls" who would benefit from a ban on fraternity parties and the "bad girls" who may still go out and get hurt. Her comments came as the group debated the merits of the University of Virginia banning sorority members from attending fraternity parties as a precaution against sexual assault. "After a failed attempt at humor about 'good girls' and 'naughty girls,' during my recent appearance on Outnumbered, I transitioned to the very serious issue of men blaming alcohol for »
ETonline exclusively premieres a sneak peek at Wednesday’s season closer, appropriately titled “The Wedding,” with Holly (Kristen Johnston) taking the plunge – except she doesn’t have a groom thanks to her breakup with the congressman.
So, how is this going to work? Simple: Holly will marry... herself!
While Holly thinks it’s the only feasible plan, her friends aren’t 100 percent sold. But when she sends Evites to her one-woman wedding, reality sets in that Holly actually may go through with this.
“I know this whole thing might seem unusual, but I’ve spent my entire life looking for a man to marry thinking that’s what I needed to feel complete until I realized I don’t »
20. Dead Man Walking
Directed by: Tim Robbins
Susan Sarandon earned herself an Oscar for her work in “Dead Man Walking,” a film directed by her then husband, Tim Robbins. She plays Sister Prejean, a nun who befriends a death row inmate named Matthew (Oscar nominated Sean Penn) as they confide in one another and build a convincing relationship as the days and hours tick down until his execution. Robbins intercuts the scenes with Sarandon and Penn with moments of the actual crime taking place, creating a storytelling rift that both supports and contradicts moments within the film, creating two very carefully drawn and developed characters. In addition to visiting him regularly, Prejean begins the crusade to find him a lawyer to make an appeal, doing all she can to delay his sentence being carried out. But, as she meets the families of the victims, she finds herself torn between right »

Turns out, Stacey Dash is pretty clueless when it comes to victim blaming.
List: 10 Celebs Who Were Too Old to Play High School Students
After the University of Virginia urged female students to avoid parties in order to prevent rape and other sexual misconduct, the actress – a regular on the Fox News show Outnumbered – addressed the new development by voicing her controversial opinion on the topic.
"I think it's a good thing for the good girls to be told to stay home, be safe," the Clueless star told the panel. "The other bad girls – bad women – are the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt."
The actress followed up her victim-blaming with a pretty flawed firearms metaphor which continued to ignore the fault of the rapists and perpetrators of sexual crimes.
"The other thing about this is that it then blames the alcohol instead of the person who overdrinks," Dash »
Clueless Part 2? Or...? Actress turned Fox News contributor Stacey Dash drew a fair amount of Internet outrage today when, while discussing the University of Virginia's decision to order sorority members to not attend fraternity parties this weekend, she pretty much got it all wrong. "Ridiculous," Dash called the ban during today's episode of Outnumbered, where the overall discussion was about whether or not Uva was going too far, Big Brother-style, by telling students where they can and can't party this weekend. "And I think the girls, I think it's a good thing, for the good girls, to you know..." "Women, they're over 18," interjected co-host »
