straight woman

1. A heterosexual woman. I don't think there was a single straight woman at the concert. I don't hang out with many straight women, to be honest.
2. A female actor or the character she plays who acts in a largely normal, composed, or understated manner in order to set up or react to the jokes or gags of another character. The two actresses form the perfect comedy duo in the film, with Scarlett Summer as the perfect straight woman to the manic Gene McGillicuddy. I always play the straight woman in comedies. I'd just like something a little more zany or out there for my next role.
