Kristen Stewart Thinks "Hollywood Is Disgustingly Sexist," Slams People Seeking Fame

April 29, 2015 2 min read

In the June issue of Harper's Bazaar U.K., Kristen Stewart gets real about sexism in Hollywood. "Women inevitably have to work a little bit harder to be heard. Hollywood is disgustingly sexist. It's crazy. It's so offensive it's crazy," she exclaimed. When it comes to people seeking fame, Stewart said she just doesn't understand it. "Fame is the worst thing in the world. Especially if it's pointless. When people say, 'I want to be famous' Why? You don't do anything, " she said. Kristen-Stewart-Harpers-Bazaar-UK-JUne-2015-Magazine-Fashion-Chanel-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-1 Stewart also touched upon body image explaining, "I'm a little bigger than sample size when I'm eating cheeseburgers and am happy and comfortable. If I'm stressed or working, the weight falls off. My weight and my sleep are tied to my nervous system. Sometimes I'll sleep for 12 hours a night and sometimes sleep just doesn't exist for me for a couple of months." Kristen-Stewart-Harper-Bazaar-UK-June-2015-Pictures I agree with Stewart when it comes to Hollywood and sexism. You can see it in the way actors are interviewed and although it changes a little here and there, there are not that many wonderful roles for women over a certain age. Yes, I'm sure you can come up with a handful of brilliant roles in the last few years played by women who aren't 20 but the reality is, there aren't enough. Women's stories are starting to be told but there is a long way to go. Kristen-Stewart-Harpers-Bazaar-UK-JUne-2015-Magazine-Fashion-Chanel-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-2 I also think revealing weight, sleep and stress struggles is a positive thing. I mean, shoot, who can't relate? The more times 'famous' people share those things, the less stressed we will likely be about them in our own lives. But here is where I have a problem with this story. The cover girl of Harper's Bazaar U.K., is calling out the pointlessness of fame? Just doesn't compute for me. Being famous seems to work for her so far... You can check out the interview when the magazine hits the stands on April 30. What do you think of her statements? Speaking the truth or just being a blow hard?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
