"Billie Jean King 40 years ago with Bobby Bobby Riggs before the famed tennis battle of the sexes. 1973. You obviously had a lot of joint appearances together with Bobby Riggs building up the attention for the mess. Did you feel like you got to know him at all? Well, actually, Bobby was one of my heroes. I love history. I knew all the champions in our sport preceding me, and I appreciate it any run the Triple crown at Wimbledon. I knew that the Second World War and actually hurt his career, which I felt bad for him because it didn't allow him to. Get the recognition he deserved. He was finally at least getting recognition. I don't know. I don't think most people realize what a great champion he he had been, even though I would tell them. I don't think they were really Tuned in that at the time. Well, yeah, he was 55 when he was doing. He was as old as my father. And I told them for me to beat him met absolutely nothing Athletically. Okay, nothing, but it's what it represented. And when Margaret lost You know, I didn't know if I was going to beat him. I did. I thought she would kill him. And right as far as wedding and she didn't so I'm like, Oh, boy, You never underestimate your opponent anyway. I mean, my parents, my dad. Oh, God, that was like he had two words. Always respect your opponent always always always respect them, no matter what. And secondly, never, ever under, estimate them ever. So these these things are just printed in my DNA. Almost so here's a hero of mine. He's He's going on and on about women in the bedroom and keep them pregnant, barefooted and all these things and I'm like, Oh, my God. He was funny, but, you know, I like Showtime. I love entertainment. And I think being a tennis player, your performer, So I got that part and I I thought you know what Bob? We just go for but I'm going to tell you I'm not letting you get under my skin. Because I didn't want him to think he could like he did, Margaret because I didn't get to see the match against Marco. I must tell you did this American masters. I got to see it once, and I didn't realize how badly Margaret played. And I felt so sorry for her because we've all been there. Every human being's been in these situations where you're You're not happy and you don't do well. And you choke. I mean athletes we choke. I mean champions just choke less. She had a horrible day at the office. So I felt so bad, but so It did T s up, though I must say it teamed us up the women's movement. Title nine the year before all the things that I've been fighting for forever equal opportunities for boys and girls. You know, it's funny because everybody talks about how this divided us actually brought everybody together. It did exactly what I wanted it had all these parties All these bets from people. Everybody was crazy at this time about this match. Well, what I wanted to ask you was. Do you think Bobby Riggs really held the strong beliefs about the role of women? Or was this just basically stick that he developed to get attention? Oh, I think you know, I think you're shamanistic. I think you probably over the top for the A match, but he's very kind person, but I think he's very chauvinist. I think he was chauvinistic. Great, but a really nice chauvinist, and he and I remain friends. Up until the day he died from prostate cancer. So the day the match arrives, and Riggs enters accompanied by a bunch of young women. You enter like Cleopatra carried on a train of muscular guys. This is obviously part of the show. Yeah, you felt OK about that. I felt great because It's showtime and Jerry Perenchio was quite sweet. You know, Before I came out, he said, I have this Egyptian litter would do you think he'd get it? I know your feminist you probably won't. I said, Are you kidding? It's showtime. This is perfect. Absolutely. I'll get up here. Let's have some fun. You know, the crowd deserves a good show. Obviously, I was about ready to die because I've got to win this match. I mean, the you know the reality of it, but I also your fans always come first. So, um Said. No, I'll get on there and he about fainted. He said. You will. I said, yes, of course I will show time. Let's hear a little bit of Showtime here. I want to listen to a little bit of Howard Cosell describing your entrance. Let's listen to this. It's like Monday night football. It's not the usual tennis atmosphere. It's not happening. Then Here comes Billy Jean King. Very attractive young lady if he ever let her hair grow down to her shoulders, Jacquard glasses off your have somebody find for Hollywood screen test. There she is. Mhm. And that's Howard Cosell reminding us it was 1973 when Billie Jean King played Bobby Riggs in the battle of the sexes, this whole.

"I'll go. Well. I'm gonna go next. If that's okay. 'cause my. Net. I went to see battle of the sexes last night, which is about as silly Jean King and Bobby Riggs tennis match that Bobby Riggs who's a complete piece of shit male. So. Seventies. Basically was like women are not inferior to men as in sports end in basically, everything and just played up this hype and just total chauvinist piece of shit, and he was a like a world champion tennis player like three or four times over. And so basically he. He challenged the the current world champion whose name I can't remember Catherine court. I think was her name, and she let wanna spoil to movie, but in any case it turned into this other thing, basically has the female tennis league or the female tennis body dotty or whatever was kicked out of US tennis because they weren't they ask for money. They ask to be paid the same as men dared. How dare they and Billie Jean King was like buck you we're gonna own tournament. So they show organize row internment, and it was all instrument it sold out like crazy did really really well. So then Bobby Riggs who's this? You know, kinda washing out kind of do challenges Billie Jean King to this tennis match to prove once and for all the member superior momentum. And it is also a love story between a secret love story between Billie Jean King. And this other woman, she's never had a a a lesbian relationship. And obviously there's something going on in there. She married to a guy is she's played by Emma stone, I won't tell anymore because just go see it. It is so good. I do see Our Lady power like pro feminist like I was. Playing the entire movie everybody that I was there with was like a really good job of pumping you off for like money's guys. Yeah. But the the the heartbreaking part of it is that she couldn't have this open relationship with a woman, she loved and. The the last line of the movie, I'm going to cry. I. It's just the most beautiful poignant heartbreaking moment. Allen cummings. Is there? He plays. They're like costume OSHA outfit Taylor. And he's so good. But anyway, so they have this moment because he's gay openly. She is gay nine not only. And it's just the psych heartbreaking moment of like did this one thing. Like, we did this amazing thing for women, and like this is going to stir the pot. But this other thing about you being gay. That's still not cool yet. You can't. Boorda that yet still could it's so so good, Emma? Stone is amazing in it. It's this like awesome. It's not it's not a sports movie. But this sport is good.

"Yeah i think i definitely understand what valerie saying there because i think it makes total sense that if you watch this movie prior to the election it would have been you know crowdpleasing movie in a very enjoyable movie no matter what but seeing it afterwards it was actually incredibly cathartic for i consider myself and i'm cher from many other people as well because for those of us who had obviously hoped to see a very different outcome in the election this really this movie signified so much as it was seeing a very similar scenario of this you know competent feminist leader go up against a very outwardly misogynistic incompetent man but in this case she got to win she actually got to fulfil the dreams of her own drains as well as those of the countless people watching and that was something that we see we did not getting to experience in the actual election was really something special to see on screen now john horta this film was distributed by fox searchlight which is a division of twentieth century fox i wonder how much fox searchlight did or maybe did not lean into that in terms of the way that it marketed the film knowing that some people might view it in that way i i think they embraced it i mean i think it makes the film more relevant and topical and i think they recognize that i don't think we saw as the were directly comparing bobby riggs with president trump but i certainly think in terms the massage and the in some of the language they use and talking about women there's an overlap i think fox was fortunate in terms of what was happening the nation that the test scores as the directors talked about surged after the election because i think people suddenly found it incredibly relevant and fox had not back away from that of their marketing.
