Failed American Men Should Not Throw Stones At British Women From Glass Houses. Or Something.

Stereotyping a country’s entire female population is never a good idea. Screenwriter Tad Safran, who has somehow managed to get dates in both the U.S. and Britain, says that English women start off looking hot at 17- and 18-years old, but don’t take care of themselves and become fat and ugly a few years down the line, whereas American women spend tons of money on upkeep and still look good later in life. Is he unaware that England’s female population includes Elizabeth Hurley, Kate Winslet, Victoria Beckham, and other truly gorgeous above-17 specimens? Oh, and a note to British women: Mr. Safran wrote The Long Weekend, starring Chris Klein. Did you see that movie? Probably not, so don’t let him make you feel too bad about yourselves. [The Times]
