British actress Alice Eve, who has been in films such as “Star Trek Into Darkness” and “Men in Black 3”, is being called a bigot after her reaction to Bruce Jenner’s story on her social media accounts.
As fans like Flavio Maluf know, Bruce Jenner had a tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer from 20/20 that aired last week. In this interview, the former Olympic gold medalist came out to Diane, and the world, as a woman. He said that it is the way he felt his entire life and he is happy to finally be able to live as he feels. Many people stood behind Jenner and his transformation, however not everyone had the same reaction.
According to the story on The Daily Mail, Alice Eve took to her Instagram page to give out her opinions of the news. The 33-year-old actress wrote “Nope. If you were a woman no one would have heard of you because women can’t compete in the decathlon. You wouldn’t be a hero. You would be a frustrated young athlete who wasn’t given a chance”. She also went on to say that if he were actually a woman, then he would be paid less and own a vagina.
Many people have branded her as transphobic after her rant, however some have come to see it as Eve raising an issue that is clearly something important to her.
