 Percentage of Movies Featuring Two or More Women in a Co-Starring RoleAgain, this includes supporting roles, but it is sort of like the Bechdel test minus the conversations: If a movie features more than one woman, then it usually treats the women as more than adornments or expendable love interests. (Notable exceptions: Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johannson in 2010’s Iron Man 2; Jeanne Tripplehorn and Holly Hunter in 1993’s The Firm.) Taken further, having more than one co-starring actress turns out to be a fairly decent indicator of a movie being about a group of women (A League of Their Own, say, or the obvious Bridesmaids example) as opposed to relationships or families… even at its best, this data is a bummer: Less than 30 percent of all movies can bother to write in more than a wife or a sidekick.

  5. Leading Men Age, But Their Love Interests Don’t -- Vulture

    The results confirmed our suspicions: As leading men age, their love interests stay the same, and even the oldest men on our list have had few romantic pairings with a woman their own age (or even one out of her mid-thirties). If our actor was sharing the screen with an A-lister of commensurate star power like Julia Roberts or Angelina Jolie, the age difference would drop somewhat, but in movies that relied solely on our guy’s big name, the lesser-known love interests would nearly always be decades younger.

    I’ll admit, this (is one of the many things that) bothered me about Oblivion.

This chart Ann Friedman did for The Hairpin made me laugh-via-exhaling-sharply-through-my-nose, which is about as close as I get to laughing when there isn’t another human being nearby whose eyes and ears require social signifiers.
