"By far. They usually - boy am I going to get in trouble, I know this goes online - but usually, unbelievably beautiful women, you being an exception, are not funny."
According to The Atlantic, Goldie Hawn agreed that her sense of humour could be attributed to being an "ugly duckling" growing up, which fuelled Eisner's rather baffling theory even more.
"You didn’t think you were beautiful," he said. "I know women who have been told they're beautiful, they win Miss Arkansas, they don't ever have to get attention other than with their looks. So they don't tell a joke.
"In the history of the motion-picture business, the number of beautiful, really beautiful women - a Lucille Ball - that are funny, is impossible to find."
His controversial views have since initiated a backlash on social media, with some name-dropping talented, beautiful and equally hilarious actresses such as Tina Fey and Emma Stone.

Meanwhile others are just downright annoyed by his sexist comments. Would he say this about male actors? Probably not.

Some times old men say stupid things when they need their diapers changed (I'm looking at YOU, Michael Eisner.)
