Do you refer to women who act as actors or actresses?
My oral rhetoric teacher in high school explained that at some surprisingly-recent point in history, a lot of studios had "default contracts" or some such thing, wherein "actors" were paid more than "actresses", so female players referred to themselves as "actors" to override the outdated policy.
