Olivia Thirlby: "I'm A Slut And Proud Of It"

Olivia Thirlby: "I'm A Slut And Proud Of It"

The quotes that actors and actresses usually give on press tours to promote their upcoming work are often incredibly bland and recycled from one interview to another. It takes a really ballsy proclamation to raise our eyebrows, and in a recent interview with Metro, actress Olivia Thirlby did just that.

While discussing her character, Martine, in the upcoming indie flick, Nobody Walks, Thirlby told the site bluntly, “Martine is a slut." She then continued, “I'm not a fan of slut-shaming. I use the term slut in a very sex-positive way. I'm a slut and proud of it. All women should be. When it comes to Martine and Martine's sexuality, which is a very specific thing that we focused on nailing -- no pun intended -- she doesn't compartmentalize her sexuality."

If this were a mainstream Hollywood movie that she was promoting, Thirlby probably would have chosen her words more carefully. But honesty is the order of the day for indie cinema, and it seems like she was just expressing how she really views herself. More power to her.
