Alexandra Daddario Says 'Baywatch' Doesn't Have Any Female Characters Who Are 'Just Funny Because They're Dumb' (Video)

Alexandra Daddario Says 'Baywatch' Doesn't Have Any Female Characters Who Are 'Just Funny Because They're Dumb' (Video)

Alexandra Daddario thinks you’ll enjoy the female characters in Baywatch – and not just because they’re gorgeous!

The actress and her Baywatch co-star Jon Bass talked “flipping the script” on stereotypical gender roles during a visit to AOL’s Build Series NYC on Wednesday (May 24) in New York City.

“I think it was very important for all of us – the cast and obviously the producers and director [Seth Gordon] – to create female characters that weren’t just dumb and funny because they were dumb,” Alexandra said. “The point was that Baywatch takes itself very seriously – we’re all like CIA operatives but on the beach – and all the women are very tough and strong, and I think that made a lot of sense in the context of this film, and I think it actually makes it funnier. It’s a little cliche to just have the women there as eye candy. Part of the joke is that we’re all supernaturally hot, but that’s not just what it is.”

“We do a really good job of sort of flipping the script and making sure that, yeah, the guys get their due. Because it’s 2017,” Jon chimed in. “The essence of Baywatch in and of itself is, you know, is sexy. It’s sexy, it’s beachy, and it’s fun – and we’re not throwing that out, we’re saying, ‘Look, that is a part of this movie, but we also know how absolutely hilarious and ridiculous that is.’”

Hear what else they had to say below, and don’t miss Baywatch when it hits theaters this Friday (May 25)!
