We had to run an errand in Hattiesburg after wrapping for the day which of course landed us at Tabella, our favorite, for a date night. We shared salads and meatballs, talking about the first week of filming (so tired) and how it felt to be back in the swing of things (like we never stopped). Earlier this week, we were talking about Darling magazine with Lindsay, about how cool their mission is to make content for women that’s uplifting and encouraging. And Ben told her his thoughts on feminism I suppose you could call it:
"I guess because I saw mama and daddy living it, I've always thought a woman can do anything she wants to do in the world, she can go to a prestigious graduate school, run a company, have babies, she can be the boss. I just think it's a man's job to make sure she never has to do anything she doesn't want to. Men were made to shoulder burdens that women shouldn't have to. They're too beautiful for that." — @scotsman.co #whataman
And it gives me a shiver to sit across the table from a man who lives that way, who treats me with so much love and kindness.
