My Fav Super Unrealistic Journalist Characters

  1. Jennifer Garner in 13 Going on 30
    Two quick ways to get laughed out of your magazine job: pitch an all-real-people revamp and be the person who did the Thriller dance at the company party.
  2. Julia Roberts in My Best Friend's Wedding
    Everyone is familiar with the much-feared 27-year-old restaurant critic who only works one hour a month, yes?
  3. Kate Hudson in How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days
    Andie we told you, shut up about Columbia because you are our how-to girl, which is someone every magazine keeps on staff with benefits!
  4. Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City (specifically the movie)
    Yes we're all aware that she could have never afforded those clothes, but let me also point out that the movie would have us believe that an occasional freelancer can grow up to star in a seven-look bridal spread in Vogue. Remember how Miranda was like, "it's ok, Charlotte you and Samantha go to Carrie's shoot without me, just text me a pic during the photo shoot montage, because I don't care about this"
  5. Simon Baker in The Devil Wears Prada
    Where do I apply for the "smirking sneakily from behind poles at gallery openings and really, that's about it" job?
  6. Bitsie Tulloch in quarterlife
    This is a deep cut but I distinctly remember her character working at a mag called Attitude and pitching a story that people snickered at because she "didn't even leave room for the ads!" in her pitch. ??? This could have been prevented by running it by literally anyone
  7. James Marsden in 27 Dresses
    Oh so u would like the job writing wedding announcements but u want to use a pen name cause it's beneath u? Actually we are also laying people off today so let me go ahead and hire u then fire u immediately
  8. Jennifer Jason Leigh in Hudsucker Proxy.
    Jk I am her.

  9. Louis Lane
    Seriously what a terrible reporter she was.

  10. Sarah Paulson in American Horror Story: Asylum.
    It was unclear if she actually worked at a publication or just really, really wanted to.

  11. Alison Pill in The Newsroom
    Remember when she went to Africa to witness a child being killed, dated Gavon Orsey AND missed the Snowden flight? Just to get a boy to notice her?!

  12. Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed
    Which ignited my crush on Michael Vartan. Also I've worked in magazines for 13 years and no one has let me go undercover and back to high school which is bullshit.
