Emma Stone and Steve Carell hold serve in 'Battle of the Sexes'

Emma Stone got buff for "Battle of the Sexes," and her dogs actually benefited the most from it

"I could tell that he that it was a put-on", he says.

"As I got older I started to understand the responsibilities that I had as a female athlete because of things that Billie had done", Lieberman said.

"Steve worked for probably six months and all those scenes with him... he really sold it", she said. "What struck me about the match was that Billie was so much more athletic than Bobby", Lieberman recalled.

"Battle of the Sexes" also looks at King's role as feminist trailblazer as she created her own professional tour for women with manager Gladys Heldman, played by Sarah Silverman, in protest of not receiving financial parity with male players in the National Tennis League.

Either way, "Battle of the Sexes" is an undeniably charming experience filled with well-acted performances, nostalgic archival footage (from Chris Evert to Howard Cosell) and catchy soundtrack tunes (from George Harrison's "What Is Life" to Bobbie Gentry's "Courtyard").

It's hard to watch Battle of the Sexes without thinking about the 2016 United States presidential election.

"It was very hard for her initially to even enter this process", adds Dayton, "particularly because what was important to us was to tell the story of her first relationship with a woman".

In "Battle of the Sexes", there's also the unfortunate "elephant on the court" of unfinished business.

You can read a biography of Billie Jean King here. She calls the whole group of us Team BOTS.

'This is so touching, ' she said with sarcastic bug eyes as he handed her the ribbon-wrapped package.

The tennis center in Long Beach is named in King's honor and in 2008 the site of the U.S. Open was named the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. "She was the one who said, 'I want to take it away from being a country club sport and make it for everybody'". "But when you get on stage you feel fine". It spoke to other issues being raised by women and minorities, such as job and housing discrimination. "[But] the women that I knew, we talked about it for weeks and weeks and weeks".

"It was someone making a stand about equality". For those of us who still struggle daily, she offers hope that there's light at the end of the tunnel - and reminds us that that we're bigger than that ever-present "green monster" after all.

King completed her degree and later advanced into management.

The iconic tennis player and women's rights advocate had the right idea but her timing, it turns out, was just a bit off. She was ranked No. 2 in the world when she agreed to play the match for a $10,000 payday.

Her acting chops are best on display in moments where she nervously welcomes flirtations from her hairdresser Marilyn (Andrea Riseborough).

Hillary Clinton got a little taste of what life would had been like had she won the election, in the form of a very entertaining gift from The Late Show host Stephen Colbert during an appearance on his show. She noted that she had no female role models or mentors in sports law. Battle of the Sexes doesn't look or sound like a "period piece", it looks and sounds like a film that was made in the 1970s, and that's in large part due to the work of these two, as well as a top-notch production design and costuming.
