In a typical box-office hit, the characters may be excessively attractive, the plotlines unrealistically smooth, or the scenery just a little too scenic. And then there are the kitchens.

Especially for those of us living in small apartments with barely-there cooking spaces, watching stars waltz around their grand kitchens is divine. Take Sasha’s huge countertops from Netflix’s new rom-com “Always Be My Maybe” or even Jules’ house in “The Intern.”

But the woman responsible for directing beautifully set films such as “The Intern,” “The Holiday,” and “Something’s Gotta Give” isn’t exactly happy that you like her kitchens. Nancy Meyers thinks you’re being sexist.

“It’s never done to male directors who make gorgeous-looking movies, where the leads live in a great house. It’s never brought up. With me, it’s an easy thing to go after, but I am not going to change it.”
