Women! Don’t! Wake! Up! With! A! Full! Face! Of! Makeup!
We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us some of the most unrealistic things women have done in movies, and boy, did Hollywood really screw us over. Here’s what everyone had to say.
Women take their “ugly” glasses off and suddenly become these gorgeous creatures everyone is totally mesmerized by.
They play teenagers in high school when they’re clearly grown-ass adults on the verge of being in their thirties.
They always resort to purchasing expensive lingerie to keep their partner interested and satisfied.
They constantly find themselves stuck in a messy and dramatic love triangle.
They sleep in luxurious eye masks, matching pajama sets, and neat hairdos.
And they wake up in the morning looking absolutely stunning, with a full face of makeup on.
They live in huge, beautiful apartments when they work as underpaid journalists or small-shop owners.
There’s always *one* woman in a group of friends who refuses to talk about sex in public because it sounds “un-ladylike.”
Young women fight and become ridiculously competitive with each other, mostly over a basic guy.
They rarely talk about their periods, and if they do, it’s totally used against them.
Women shop or get a manicure as a way to resolve their deeply-rooted problems.
They don’t have a life of their own if they’re portrayed as the fun ‘n’ quirky best friend.
If a woman bullies another woman, that means she’s actually sexually attracted to her.
They always prioritize getting married and having a family over everything else.
They constantly have wild, unprotected sex in the most random places.
And they orgasm the second they start having sex with their partner.
As teens, they sneak out of their house at random hours of the night to break all sorts of rules.
And they never do homework because they supposedly don’t care about their education.
They always have a difficult time exploring their bodies, having sexual fantasies, and knowing how to masturbate.
Straight women only make out with other women *just* to satisfy men.
And if queer women kiss, the relationship is rarely explored on a deep and meaningful level.
They never put their hair up when they exercise or play any type of sport.
As teens, their main goal in life is to be crowned prom queen.
And they always wind up doing something totally wild the night before high school graduation.
Women over the age of 50 have zero desire to be intimate with anyone.
They’re portrayed as “broken” characters who will feel “whole” and “repaired” once they have sex with men.
Women somehow always save the day while wearing tight dresses and high heels.
And they always have these “quirky, hot mess” personalities to make them “likable.”
They never have a single piece of hair anywhere on their body.
The only way a woman will have sex is if it’s in the dark, or if they’re surrounded by a billion candles in a fancy boudoir.
Young women who are in high school spend every single weekend partying it UP.
And they rock extremely trendy and expensive outfits to high school on a daily basis.
