Paige Spiranac is both sexy and strong. So when the Instagram golfer/podcaster heard about the Space Jam sequel's director deciding to make Lola Bunny less sexy than the original in order to make her appear to be more strong, she wasn't happy.
She addressed the issue this week on her podcast, "Playing A Round With Paige Renee." In her opinion a woman can be both sexy and strong.
From The Sun:
"The director wanted her to be less sexy and be seen as more strong. So what the director decided to do was take away all of her femininity.
"She has no curves and her outfit is long basketball shorts with compression shorts and a baggy shirt. I took so much offence to this.
"They're basically insinuating that you can't be sexy and also strong.
"And to be seen as strong you have to be seen as more masculine. And you can't show off your body or curves. I hated that. I don't like what they're trying to say with this new Lola bunny.
"All women can be strong and sexy and empowered in their own way.
"It's a cartoon character, like what the f*** are we actually talking about here but taking the boobs off Lola Bunny you are saying you can never be seen that way because women who have large breasts, what do we do about that?
"You look at her in the original movie and she was a f**king badass. She balled out and she looked good.
"When she gave it to Bugs Bunny and said 'don't call me babe' then walked out, that was an empowering moment for three-year-old Paige watching this."
I agree with Paige on this 100%. I think it's a ridiculous conversation to have in the first place, but since we're having it I don't understand why a female character can't be both sexy and strong...
