ARE YOU OBJECTIFYING ME? LOL, I DON’T CARE
A Gold Coast star of the controversial Ultra Tune TV commercials opens up on why she is happy to play one of its ‘dumb, young females’
“It’s the whole damsel in distress thing that the feminist groups hate,” she says. “They hate that women can’t help themselves. That will definitely get all the feminists riled up. Basically we play dumb, blond, young females who are unable to drive and there is a man who saves us – so that sparks controversy.”
Hansen takes any insults in her stride: “Some people tend to make a joke, like they will repeat my lines from the ad at me and laugh about them. I think that is pretty comical because they have obviously watched the ad that many times they’ve memorised my lines.”
Hansen, 23, says she has “a new love for acting” and hopes to springboad into reality TV or sitcom work.
Clearly Sheen enjoyed himself (but then he did get paid $500,000), tweeting soon after: “#winning with Sean (Buckley) and the good folks of Ultra Tune! Another roadside emergency thwarted! To be continued, in so many epic ways!”
