Reverse Discrimination? Mr. Golden Globe Getting a Lot Less Press Than Miss Golden Globe

If not for the Wall Street Journal, it would be almost impossible these past few days to realize that there will actually be two celebrity offspring officially helping out at Sunday’s Golden Globes.

Clint Eastwood‘s 19-year-old daughter Francesca (Miss Golden Globe) is all over the media map, confessing 25 things people don’t know about her to US magazine, five similar tidbits to ABC News and getting tons more ink from the likes of ET and The Daily Mail. Sam Fox on the other hand (Mr. Golden Globe, pictured), a 23-year-old chip off the old Michael J. block, must make MSM-do with some WSJ coverage. But at least in that article he’s properly accounted for:

Fox, who lives in the West Village, is the director of business development and strategy at Farmers Web, a startup platform for small and medium-size farms to sell goods to restaurants and other wholesale buyers. “I’ve always been interested in food,” said Fox, whose uncle Michael Pollan wrote The Omnivore’s Dilemma. “Right now I’m really into kale.”

The appearance of a Mr. Golden Globe is Hollywood’s equivalent of a Leap Year and more. Prior to Fox, the male honors belonged to A.J. Lamas in 2003 and Freddie Prinze Jr. in 1996. (Adding insult to gender bias in this case? Two days before the big show, only Ms. Eastwood is listed on the HFPA site.)
