100 days before the US presidential election, a number of celebrities recorded videos urging people to register to vote. A joint video on this topic was also recorded by Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow.
‘Do you know why I’m calling you? There are 100 days left before the elections. Therefore, I must convince you to vote, and you must convince me and all your friends to vote,’ – says in the video Gwyneth, to which Robert promises her to agitate all his friends. And then the actor asks his friend what she was doing today.
‘Selling vagina-scented candles?’ – Downey Jr. asked.
‘Yes, and I made a new one – just for you,’ – said Gwyneth, after which Robert shyly covered his face with his hand.
Candles titled “Smells Like My Vagina” and “Smells Like My Orgasm” became a hit in Gwyneth Paltrow’s store and a major joke about the actress. However, only the name is shocking in these candles, they smell normal. Paltrow said that she initially came up with these candles as a joke, but then decided to implement the idea in order to undermine the long-standing stereotypes and complexes about the female body.
‘Many of us women have grown up with a certain sense of shame for our bodies,’ – the actress notes.
