A Producer Once Tried to Help Julia Louis-Dreyfus By Telling Her Curly Hair Wasn’t Fuckable: it's kinda weird that the article doesn't mention that this is an argument about ethnic Jewish hair, really. V. possibly one between Jews, engaging in a type of internecine hair-shaming v. often discussed in re: the black community.
