According to Anne Thompson‘s latest Hollywood Reporter/”Risky Business” column, the thing that got Paramount president Gail Berman “into trouble” was the fact that “she’s a strong forthright woman accustomed to wielding considerable power. She is not the sort of person who hides her intelligence, defers to men, or uses feminine wiles to soften her image. Disgruntled people who don’t like being told how to do their business by a big-screen neophyte complained. And spread rumors. Said one marketing executive at another studio, ‘Agents hate her guts,’ adding, ‘She’s not winning friends and influencing people.'” I don’t know Berman but I kind of like her now because Hollywood doesn’t have enough contrarians in the ranks.
