Women Must Demand to Reshape the Media’s Take on the Ideal Femme

5 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Growing up, Sophia Loren was called the little toothpick, “stuzzicadenti,” starving as she was in her native Naples during wartime. And, then, she blossomed. She became a beauty: wasp-waisted, full-bosomed, hippy. Despite “a nose too long, and lips too wide” (according to Loren herself at a recent tribute in Schenectady, N.Y.), that body and the way she used it propelled her to international stardom. Watching Loren mambo in 1955’s “Scandal in Sorrento” (tagline: “So much Woman! So much Spectacle! So much Excitement!”), it’s clear that she’s no longer the toothpick. Instead, she’s a colossus whose body is a vessel of power for a future Oscar winner who knew how to deploy it — and didn’t underestimate its effect on the men around her.

Contemporary Hollywood would fumble with all that gorgeous flesh. That body is too powerful, too full: female but invulnerable. Perhaps only Sofia Vergara, »

Starz’s “Ash vs Evil Dead” has added two cast members for Season 2, while We tv has announced the premiere date for the fifth season of “Mary Mary,” plus even more in today’s news roundup…


Lee Majors and Ted Raimi are joining the fight against the Evil Dead in the second season of the Starz horror-comedy.

Majors will play Brock Williams, the father of Bruce Campbell’s Ash, while Raimi plays Ash’s childhood best friend Chet Kaminski.

Although Majors is new to the series, Raimi previously appeared in all three of the original “Evil Dead” movies, directed and written by his brother, Sam Raimi. The 10-episode second season will pick up the threads left off in season one, with Ruby (Lucy Lawless) possessing the Necronomicon, Pablo (Ray Santiago) still dealing with trauma from the cabin and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) plotting revenge against the Evil Dead after the death of her parents. »
