Miss Ohio Audrey Bolte seemed to wander around in her brain then say the first thing that she found. When asked about the portrayal of women in movies she cites “Pretty Woman” as a positive. She says, ‘Julia Roberts”, pauses for a response from the crowd and gets stunned and/or confused silence. “Pretty Woman” is about a hooker who falls for a rich John. In the end she marries the rich man and *insert derisive snort* they live happily ever after. She seems to feel that it is OK to be a prostitute as long as the woman catches a rich man in the end. It will be a while before she live this down.
Judge Marilu Henner asked: “Do you think women are depicted in movies and on television in an accurate and positive way? And please give us an example.”
Audrey Bolte answered: “I think it depends on the movie. I think there are some movies that depict women in a very positive role, and then some movies that put them in a little bit more of negative role. But by the end of the movie, they show that woman power that I know we all have. Such as the movie ‘Pretty Woman’. We had a wonderful, beautiful woman, Julia Roberts, and she was having a rough time, but, you know what, she came out on top and she didn’t let anybody stand in her path,”
