“Cool girl is hot. Cool girl is game.”

Media Example

As soon as I learned we were talking about “Cool Girls” in Hollywood, I was excited to share the infamous scene in Gone Girl with Amy’s “cool girl” speech. Of course, Peterson’s Buzzfeed article already cites this quote/scene as a perfect example in summation of the cool girl archetype. However, I found a Slate article that discusses the weird thing that David Fincher does in the movie adaptation.

Nonetheless, I love Fincher’s Gone Girl and Flynn’s perfect description of the girl who is feminine and beautiful yet loves beer and sports (the girl Hollywood loves to depict Jennifer Lawrence as). “Men actually think this girl exists”.
