Mariska Hargitay. What exactly does her charity do aside from have galas in NY and Hawaii and "raise awareness"? There was an interesting Deadspin article a couple of years ago that claimed her charity is more about branding than anything else. Apparently, the logo is owned by Kate Spade.

The general idea that when someone supports a cause means that they must then adhere to the most ridge of standards is perplexing; for instance, Leo DiCaprio's use of jets and big houses. At what point would his consumption become acceptable? Should he not drive anything but a Prius? Or should he just walk everywhere he goes? Does the fact that he has solar panels on his house not count (assuming he does; I don't follow DiCaprio or know enough about him to know his energy use profile)? Or should he live in a micro house completely off the grid? I mean, look at the way those on the right deride conservation activists like DiCaprio while simultaneously mocking celebrities like Ed Begley Jr who actually do practice what they preach.

Kate Winslet, very big hypocrite (imo) . I always thought she was pretty and never understood why she'd get so much flak for being "fat". She was buttery and creamy in the Titanic (Victorian women were softer, "curvier")...and usually Brits are dry. So she had said for YEARS that those who run and work in Hollywood told her to lose weight. This went well into the early/mid 2000's------Recently, with many actresses speaking out on being paid LESS than their male conterparts. Kate Winslet said that she doesn't talk about money and perhaps it's beacuse she is English (I get that, I have English parents), But she went on to say that she was never treated unfairly by anyone in the industry. WTF?

Hardcore feminist Jessica Chastain producing a movie with big time abuser Matthew Newton is one of the most hypocritical things I've ever seen in Hollywood. He stepped down as director, but he's still getting paid for his screenplay. Jessica still hasn't issued a statement about it. There's simply no way she or anyone in her circle didn't bother to google this guy beforehand.

Meryl Streep - she called Harvey Weinstein "God" and gave Roman Polanski a standing ovation at the 2003 Oscars, then made positive statements about the #metoo movement.
Natalie Portman - also signed the Polanski petition, but makes a big deal out of what a "feminist" she is.
Jimmy Kimmel - he talks about gun control then claims to be apolitical ("I'm just a comedian").
Joss Whedon - also made a big deal out of what a "feminist" he is, but cheated on his wife constantly and uses the "casting couch" to cast his projects and for writers.

Streep = this cunt praised the me too movement and shoved her politics down our throats at the Globes but of course knew nothing about her BFF Harvey. Also, check out her standing O for Roman Polanski.
Chastain = for the longest time, this two faced bitch wouldn’t shut the fuck up about all things gender. When notorious abuser Matthew Newton was hired to write the script for her latest project, she shockingly had no comment.
