How Battle Of The Sexes Brought Together A Fun Superbad Reunion
I had the chance to talk with the directors during the Battle of the SexesLos Angeles press day this past weekend, and it was in the midst of our conversation that I brought up the funny little reunion that comes together in their film. In Superbad, Emma Stone (Jules) and Martha MacIssac (Becca) played friends who are the respective love interests of Jonah Hill and Michael Cera’s characters, and now 10 years later they’re back palling around on the big screen. In the new movie, Stone stars in the lead role as tennis legend Billie Jean King, but MacIssac plays a notable player in her own right, portraying Jane ‘Peaches’ Bartkowicz. In 1970, both were part of the group of nine players who participated in the Houston Women’s Invitation, which was essentially established in protest of professional tournaments giving unequal prize money to male and female competitors (and is a key event in the first act of the feature).
