And that's why so many roles for women are shit: because they're expected, at all times, to be visually appealing, even under extreme duress or when outright dying.

Technically Op is arguing that she looks stupid, not that she looks ugly. However, whether or not OP would think the same expression looked just as stupid on a guy is another question. OP will surely say they would.

Bottom line: People do often respond in a weird and biased way towards female characters who are depicted as being stronger than the men around them. That said? Pick your battles.

I mean, plenty enough people poke fun at Luke Skywalker's "screaming chipmunk" face, as a friend put it ( I'm sure there's other examples, but I feel like a hammy/goofy delivery taking away from a dramatic moment isn't (for the most part) a gendered thing.

Not sure how you get "women" out of this when it's about a very specific woman in a very specific role in a very specific scene.
