Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayInspirationDisney

There he goes again! John Quiñones keeping it real!

On a very special Halloween episode of ABC's What Would You Do?, bystanders on hidden camera get a televised integrity check!

If you were in a costume shop watching a Mom yell at her son for dressing up as a Disney princess, what would you do?

Ch-ch-check out the honest reactions of people caught in a gender-bender dilemma (above) when parents pretend to disapprove of who their kids are at heart!!

We were moved to tears by the last woman's insistence that a parent's primary concern should be supporting their kids at any cost and making them feel comfortable and proud in their own skin!!

How Much Did Angie Make For Salt?

And she deserves every penny she makes!

You can praise Angelina Jolie for her humanitarian efforts and her charity work, but people rarely focus on what she's done for film!

The award-winning actress' latest film, Salt, secured her a nice, solid $20 million - a paycheck that only a few MALE actors can even make on one film!

Lori Watson, director of Women's and Gender Studies at the University of San Diego, says:

"The fact that she is in the entertainment industry and can approach a male salary is an anomaly. Maybe she can command a salary, but she can't break through the expectations that women are supposed to be beautiful and sexualized and fit a certain mold and behave in a certain way."

Hey, we think being able to make that kind of money says something!

Especially when she has enough pull to have an entire action movie re-worked from a male lead to a female just to give her the part!

What do U think?? Has Angelina broken down barriers about women in action films??
