please kill me

More proof that Hollywood hates women:

Ugh. Is there some new Photoshop filter called Skeevify that they used on Matthew McConaughey, or has he always been this vile and I’ve finally reached a tipping point in (just barely) tolerating it?

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past? Really?


Celebrity photographer Connor Mead loves freedom, fun and women… in that order. A committed bachelor who thinks nothing of breaking up with multiple women on a conference call, Connor’s mockery of romance proves a real buzz-kill for his kid brother, Paul, and a houseful of well wishers on the eve of Paul’s wedding. Just when it looks like Connor may single-handedly ruin the wedding, he is visited by the ghosts of his former jilted girlfriends, who take him on a revealing and hilarious odyssey through his failed relationships–past, present and future. Together they attempt to find out what turned Connor into such an insensitive jerk and whether there is still hope for him to find true love…or if he really is the lost cause everyone thinks he is.

See, cuz guys are just lovable, scampish rogues until women ruin them by whipping them into shape. No, don’t tell me that that’s not the subtext of this, because if it weren’t, the poster would make McConaughey look like Darth Vader or Freddy Krueger, and not like what Hollywood thinks women find attractive in men. He’s not the villain of this piece — he’s the hero.

I think I’m going to have myself cryogenically frozen until the world smartens up.
