Female Celebs Back #AskHerMore Campaign to Stop Bad Red Carpet Questions

If you watch red carpets before awards ceremonies, you might notice whereas men are asked more about their movie roles while women are asked more about their fashion sense. Some actresses are tired of women getting all the light and gossipy questions, so they started the trend #AskHerMore on Twitter:

One of the biggest names to back the social media campaign was actress Reese Witherspoon, who posted this message on Instagram:

Witherspoon also addressed the campaign on the red carpet. You can watch here, via ABC:

Other female celebs showed their support too:

This is how an E! executive producer addressed the issue:

“When it comes to E!, I think the charge is off the mark,” he told THR when asked about his response to the #AskHerMore campaign. He said that if E! spends “more than a moment on people’s outfits” it’s because the person that is being interviewed wants to.

“It’s the first thing that we talk about because it’s natural to say to someone, ‘You look lovely, tell me about your outfit,’ and I do think the stars welcome that. Generally we go to questions about projects they have, who they are with, what they expect tonight — a whole range of issues that have been researched across the entire awards season, and that’s what the interview is about.”
