Not to say that I don't feel sorry for Shailene, I loved her in The Descendants and I was one of the few that thought she looked very pretty and even hot in the set pics (with make-up, sorry). But I still can't help but feel people wouldn't even raise an eyebrow if the exact same thing would've happened to a male actor in an identical situation. We now know that it was purely because of streamlining the story (confirmed), and we don't know yet if she's off the role or if she will return in ASM3. So I think we can all end this "Webb is a pig!!" talk. It is however very unfortunate that these news about Sarah Gadon surfaced so soon after the news of Shailene being cut out of the movie. Of course people would think Sarah was a replacement and then come to the conclusion that it was because Webb for some reason wasn't satisfied with her. Webb should have quickly confirmed that Sarah isn't MJ to spare Shailene (or himself) some embarassment. Not that Shailene should feel embarassed at herself, of course, but this whole situation and these speculations must have been pretty tough and Webb could've cleaned it up before the damage was done.
