@empty-soul I did like your timeline of male heroes and female stars. It was very interesting to read and made sense. I think movies take a vague idea of current society and create a “better” version. In that sense, I agree media copies trends. It’s an unrealistic interpretation.
And I think the demands have become more and more unrealistic. The ladies of the 50s were pretty much normal women who happened to be sexy. They weren’t plastic. The men weren’t hulking muscleheads.
While they fit a certain standard, it wasn’t an impossible feat to have that look. I suppose what I notice is the extremes media goes to these days. Normal people – including the actors – can barely keep up. I just don’t see the need.
