It’s hard out there for a lady in Hollywood. There is an incredibly little number of driving parts for on-screen characters, conspicuous sexism makes it hard for you to work with a female executive, and you can’t even wear pads at Cannes. In a meeting with The Wrap, Maggie Gyllenhaal uncovered how Hollywood’s sexism has straightforwardly influenced her profession, and its … absurd.
“There are things that are truly disillusioning about being a performer in Hollywood that amaze me constantly,” she said. “I’m 37 and I was advised as of late I was excessively old, making it impossible to play the darling of a man who was 55. It was bewildering to me. It made me feel awful, and after that it made feel irate, and afterward it made me snicker.” Unfortunately for all of us, she wouldn’t name names, yet heaps of motion pictures have this issue. Examine the cast of any late Woody Allen motion picture and you’ll get the indication.
In case you’re feeling particularly skeptical, her acknowledgement discourse at the Golden Globes may improve you feel a bit: “What I believe is new is the abundance of parts for genuine ladies in TV and in film,” she said. “That is the thing that I believe is progressive and developmental, and its what’s turning me on.” So in any event there’s that.
