She’s a complete badass. Sadly, the world is fixated on her “thicc ass” as an alternative.
Because the movie hit theaters June 15, social-media customers have flooded Twitter and Instagram with memes of Elastigirl’s juicy behind.
Even New Yorker critic Anthony Lane introduced up the hero’s physique in his overview. Beholding her outfit —“as tight as a second pores and skin” — he compares her to Anastasia Steele from “Fifty Shades of Gray” and envisions a male theatergoer’s physiological response: “Daddy simply rested his cooling soda firmly in his lap and, like Mr. Unbelievable, tried very laborious to think about algebra.”
