The way it works, as I’ve learned recently, is if you reach a point in your career where things are going very well, public perception needs a ‘Yeah, but’. Like, ‘Yeah, but she’s been on a lotta dates apparently’ or ‘Yeah, but I hear she’s crazy.’ I think you’ll find it has a lot to do with being a woman. And I resent that; that there has to be some downside to your personality or lifestyle if you’re a woman and successful.
