    If I thought you were being serious, the logical outcome of this would be that those women who submit to sleaze-bags and screw their way to the top will do so at the expense of those who don't. A system which seems to ecapsulate and reward prostitution and sexual predatism.

    I'm slightly perturbed that p has been under the impression that Hollywood is a place of rigid moral scruple where no-one would ever dream of exchanging sexual favours for success, tbh.

    It's essentially the same as in any other industry you can name, in fact. This is slightly different though, because of Hollywood's oft-stated sanctimoniousness and holier-than-thou .. ness on such issues.
