What Adam Pally has to say about sexism in the movie industry proves why we love him
As if we needed to love him, Adam Pally just spilled some tea about sexism in the movie industry, and if he wasn’t already married we’d WISH he was our husband!
Ever since we saw him on Happy Endings, we’ve been pretty darn obsessed with Adam Pally. That love only deepened when he joined The Mindy Project as Peter Prentice. What’s more, we can’t wait to see what he’s been cooking up with Leighton Meester’s new show, Making History, which sees Pally play a time travelling professor who goes back to colonial Massachusetts. Seriously, this show looks like it could be HILARIOUS!
However, Adam Pally has been making us scream “YAAAAASS” for another reason, and it’s all to do with sexism in the movie industry.
While in Sundance promoting his film Band Aid, which stars Zoe Lister-Jones, who also wrote, produced, and directed the movie, Pally pointed out one of the great sexist injustices that female directors face.
Pally is, of course, making reference to Colin Trevorrow, whose 2012 film Safety Not Guaranteed, which he submitted at Sundance, lead to him directing Jurassic World.
Continuing, Adam Pally said that he felt it was an injustice.
Tbh, we can’t stop applauding what Pally said. And, from the sounds of it, Zoe Lister-Jones also made sure that her movie Band Aid was as feminist as possible, too, by employing an entirely female crew.
Band Aid follows the story of about a couple who use their fights as influences for catchy pop punk songs. According to Vulture, the film has yet to be picked up, but from the sounds of it, it’s a pretty special movie.
Meanwhile, Adam Pally and Leighton Meetser’s Making History is set to start on FOX on March 5th.
